  1. Do you still have these rods? James
  2. Damn, I have the generation 1 HDS 7 for the last 6 or 7 years with the Platinum chip and I love it. Why does it have to be the week before Christmas? Someone is going to get a helluva chartplotter for that price. Who knows, maybe you will still have it after Christmas.
  3. Last trip of the season

    The size of the fish doesn't matter. It is the smile on the kids faces that makes the day. To be honest I don't even really care to catch the fish, I get total pleasure with taking people out on my boat and putting them on fish and making their day. This summer there were so many people who caught their first king, first coho and first steelhead. I had my nephews up from Virginia this summer and they had a blast whether they were catching kings, lake trout, or filling the boat with perch and bluegills. Actually I have to say that one day the two of them caught about a hundred bluegill and were having a competition and it was so much fun to watch them have fun. I won't be putting my boat away until the 1st of December and plan to have many more trips with no one out on the lake. I love fall fishing and duck hunting the islands. Way to make the kids summer memories ones to remember.
  4. My first

    Way to go. Now you have salmon fever and are hooked for life. Nothing like a 20 to 30 king screaming the clicker out a couple hundred feet on the first run. Then they turn and charge the boat at 100mph and you swear he is gone. Just have to reel like hell when you think you dropped him and when you catch up to him, he will turn and take another run. Bigger stronger fish this year then the last couple years and so many of them when they got close to my boat would just keep on swimming right on by. I can't tell you how many fish I netted on the side of the boat as he was passing the boat. Makes it tough when the bimini top is up. Kings are the closest I get to catching yellowfin tuna, albacore, yellowtail, dorado, and wahoo. I would rather catch two or three kings then catch 30 bass. Something about the line peeling that gets my adrenaline going. Great fish and it will be the first of many more to come.
  5. There are a ton of 10 to 15 lb Silver's out there right now
  6. That small paddle in my Tupperware tub has taken a few too this year
  7. It seems like most of my salmon this year have been on meat rigs with mountain dew, light green/ dark green on one side and chrome on the other side. White spin doctor with green dots, big green e chip with white crinkle on one side and chrome on the other. I don't know the names because after I open them up I throw the wrapper away. The herring I made my own brine with pickling salt and powdered milk and water. I even used brow trout trips this week in the brine and was catching fish. When I filet the fish I left a half of inch on of meat on it. Then I cut with the spots on top down to the white belly meat. Had it on a dedicated rigger this week and caught 4 salmon from 18 yo 26 lbs. Too funny. The other 11 inch e chip that has been getting hammered is one that is like the yellow on the left on both sides. Keep throwing stuff at them they will bite. I have been catching most all of my salmon at 1.9 to 2.1 this last couple of weeks at the ball according to my Fish Hawk X4D. Good luck now go slam some salmon tomorrow.
  8. Is it for hydraulic steering? James
  9. Awesome. I love when the kids have fun and catch fish.
  10. Do they have the round motors or the Bosch motors? Can't get the round motors anymore. Just wondering. Thanks James
