  2. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: Wallaholic ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s):09/01, 09/02, 09/3, 09/4, 09/5, 09/9 Time on Water: 10 hours some days, 4 hours on some short days Weather/Temp: sunny most of the time, rained twice Wind Speed/Direction: every which way Waves: calm to 8 ftrs Surface Temp: Location: LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: lots Total Boated:lots Species Breakdown:kings, coho's, brown Hot Lure: glow white in the morning, chrome with the sun, atomic hammer, mirage, pro am, ultra glow green Trolling Speed: depended on the current, it was different going into it and with it Down Speed: 1.8-2.2 was best Boat Depth: 80-140 Lure Depth: close to bottom for the depth we were fishing ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== 9/1: Started in the trench at Whaley's and worked to just beyond the lighthouse. Tons of boats and tons of fish. We fished from 6 am to 1 pm. Boated 19 salmon. 4 Coho and 15 kings. We did battle with 31 on and started the day 0 for 9 with snaps breaking boats running us over and cutting off, swivels straightening out. Anything that could of gone wrong did. we turned it all around and went on to have a great day despite losing more gear than anyone would want to. Chrome was good all day. Riggers and dipsy's set at 1 and with shorter leads when traffic aloud us to get them out. We got ran over twice with fish on the riggers but that is part of salmon fever combat fishing. We kept the coho's and released successfully the rest of the kings. 9/2: Went out of Stony Creek to avoid some traffic. Headed right out front to 125 fow. Set up spread with 500 copper, 2 dips, 3 riggers. Got set up around 3:30 and fished til 7. We went 6 for 8 with one coho. All chrome program again. 9/3: Launched out of Stoney Creek again and were welcomed by 4-6 footers. Weather man with 1 foot or less was way off. We set up in front of Lakeview and trolled toward the lighthouse in 125 fow. Riggers down 105 and dips out. Everything was on. We made 5 passes down and got our 9 fish and decided that was enough. 3 coho and the rest kings. Green glow echips were the ticket that day with ultra green glow atomic. Fished from 6:30 to noon. 9/4: Launched in Henderson to try to avoid the wind and waves. We ran out the the lighthouse and when we broke the corner we were welcomed by 6 footers with bigger ones mixed in. We turned around and stuck it out in the trench. It ende up being another good one. We went on to boat 10. Tally was 10 for 19. The 11" white echip down the middle was best that day. The dips were good at 265 and 245 on a 2 setting with glow white and glow green with pro ams. We kept one coho and 2 kings and successfully released the rest. Fished from 7 am to 2 pm. 9/5: Headed back to Henderson and launched there. The lake was like glass. Fish were down deep and could only get them to fire in 130-140 fow with the riggers down 125-135. Slow pick of kings and 1 coho. Slid in close to 85-90 fow and had good temp down 60 ft. Dips came alive and riggers down 75, 75, 74. We ended up 10 for 18 with a mix of one brown, one coho and the rest kings. 9/9: Launched out of Henderson and headed out to the islands to try some eyes. Had a bad case of the dropsies and lost 5 in the prop wash and boated one. The one we landed shook off as soon as it hit the net. Made a few more passes and the bite was off. We picked up and ran over to the lighthouse and set up a 5 rod set with 2 dips and 3 riggers. We could not get the dips going but the riggers were on fire. We made one pass from the lighthouse to Whaley's in 90 fow and had the wingers at 85 and the probe at 88. Ice house with a hammer fly, big silver down the middle with a pro am, and NBK with pro am on the other winger did the trick. Speed was tricky with the current again so the probe is critical for success! We went 9 for 11 in one long pass. It was a fantastic week with alot of fish and quality time spent with family and friends! Here are a few of the pics. Hope you enjoy. We released alot of fish. After all how many do you need to keep?

  6. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s): Time on Water:5pm-7:30pm Weather/Temp:mid 70's, sunny Wind Speed/Direction:w/sw light Waves: rollers going calm Surface Temp: 76-77 Location:trench LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 2 Total Boated:1 Species Breakdown:king Hot Lure: 11" chip with atomic fly Trolling Speed: 3.1 Down Speed: 2.3-2.7 Boat Depth: 115-138 Lure Depth: 105 ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS The word was that the trench was on fire Saturday but due to other engagements i missed out. Many boats did double digits on Saturday. On Sunday morning the word was that the bite was nothing like it was on Saturday but the ones that they are getting are all big matures. I could not get out until the evening so we headed to the lake around 4 pm and were set up by 5 pm. My buddy Geno had a trip out in the morning and boated a 33 lb male and is not in the derby. I had my 4 year old son and my good friend Chris with me with the hopes of getting my son Kage into his first King. He is pretty seasoned for his age and has boated everything but the salmon. We tried to get out last Tuesday evening but just landed one brown trout and had 3 kings go for ripps but couldn't keep them on. We were then greeted by lightning and had get off the lake with no more than an hour of being out. We got set up with a 3 rigger, 1 dipsy, 1 copper set. 11" echip on the copper and center rigger with an atomic, 8 " chip on the rest. Tried moving the dipsy and copper all around and couldn't get them to budge. I also tried changing things up on the corners and couldn't get them to move. The only 2 bites we could manage were down the middle at 105. The screen looked good but the temp was 74 degrees down 105 and was still 70 degrees down 125. The first bite came not long after getting set up. My friend Chris says its snagged on bottom and i said not its not just keep the pressure on. He then says its still hooked on the cable and again i said no its not just keep the pressure on him. So he is still not convinced until the beast wakes up and ripps off 400' of line fast than he can say holy f*@k its not bottom or the cable. My son then comes out of the cabin and says hey i want to reel him in. But the beast charged the boat and shook off. My buddy gets back on the wheel, Kage back to the cabin and i re rig. We circle the area with not much cooperation from the fish. Just as Chris and Kage are playing with Match Box cars in the back of the boat and my son is complaining that he is bored off goes the center rigger to the races. Chris hands off the rod to Kage and away he goes to cranking without one complaint. The fish came up after one big run but fought hard all the way making alot of small surges. It didn't look that big at first but as it got closer it kept getting bigger. As a kicker to the chaos we forgot the net for the second consecutive trip so i am getting mentally prepared for what is about to happen when we get this hog to the boat. It was going well until the fish charged across the back of the boat and got to the other side. It twisted around the wire dipsy, got it untwisted and managed to get a fish handle under its gills and lifted her into the boat. My son was horrified and really didnt want to get to close to the big girl and we were all laughing and celebrating. I was a pretty proud Dad. That would be the last bite for a short trip for us. I only saw 2 other fish get put to the net from the surrounding boats. We need some better temps and i think we will have better cooperation from the kings. Here are some pics. the fish weighed in at just over 31 lbs and was 38 3/4 inches long. My son is 44 " tall and he felt threated from the beast. I am in the LOC but my son is not and Chris is not either. It looks like another big leader board is going to be the norm.====================

  9. What a monster shark!!!! Way to go! It is definitely good to see people with the more primitive equipment (i.e. hand crank riggers), and custom equipment, even though you got em on the dip to be able to go out there and make all the big guns a little jealous. I bet you will register in the future as you now know anyone can do it you just have to be out there. Great fish and hope he will look magnificent on the mantle. Fish of a lifetime. Congratulations, well done. Get back out there.
  10. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s):07/21/2012 Time on Water:5:30 am-3:00 pm Weather/Temp: georgeous Wind Speed/Direction: switched 3 times Waves: 1-3 feet Surface Temp: 72-75 Location: North Dune to South Dune LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 25 Total Boated:22 Species Breakdown:2 kings, 20 lakers Hot Lure: Spin Doctor/Atomic, Echip/Big Weenie Trolling Speed: 3-3.5 Down Speed: 2.2-2.9 Boat Depth: 55-140 Lure Depth: all over ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS Headed out from Stoney Creek at 5:15 ish and had lines in the water by 5:30. Started in 138 and dropped the Moonshine down 125. Turn around to get the second rigger rod ready and fish on. Ended up being a 8 lb laker. That was the last time the spoon would go. We swiched spoons, colors, depths, leads, FF and just couldn't get a consistent pattern going. Only thing we didn't try was bait. Dips seemed to be the best out 245, 265, 285, 300. Ran the chrome Spin Doctor/Green Atomic which took a teenager king and most of the lakers on one side and NBK combo on the other side which took many lakers. The other king came on a NK gator on the leadcore on a board which was the only fish we caught on a junk line. The screen looked great for the first hour than nothing as the action was great for us just polluted with lakers. Its great to have action but two weekends in a row? We successfully released 16 of the 20 lakers but the kings and the other 4 lakers hit the smoker. I dont care who you are they are tastey!! The king bite should get good again as the lake will settle back. I heard that Friday was good out to the lanes but did not hear anything from the weekend. Here is a couple pics. One of Notorious B.O.B. and Mstr Capt Geno of Sunken Treasure Charters. All in all it was a good fishing day with best buddies and the great outdoors. Now that the fleas are starting to settle it may be time to hit the eyes again. After the challenging spring its going to be payback. ==================== nice 12 lb laker 17 lb king
  11. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: Wallaholic ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s): Saturday, July 14, 2012 Time on Water:6:00 am- 3:00pm Weather/Temp: Wind Speed/Direction: Waves: 2-4' Surface Temp: 76-78 Location: Stoney Point and Calf Island Shelf LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: over 30 Total Boated: 30 Species Breakdown: 2 kings, 28 lakers Hot Lure: FF Trolling Speed: 3 Down Speed: 2.3-2.7 Boat Depth: 118-145 Lure Depth: 90-120 ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS Got to Henderson Launch at 5 am and the site was closed for the day for a Triathlon so we went over to Stoney and launched. Weather man was a little off again. It was bumpy on the east end. We could only get a good presentation going with the waves. Wires out 300 and 310 with FF was good, 450 copper with FF, and half spoons on the riggers with FF doing the most action. Didn't matter with the lakers the faster we went the more they liked it. 5 of the lakers were overs 13-17 lbs, a few in the slot and the rest were unders. The kings were 23 and 14 and dropped 4 others. FF were chrome chips and spinnys, hammertime spinny with pole dancer and pro am flies. A good fish catching day with just an OK screen most of the time. Be back out next weekend. No pics from the weekend but i will add a couple from 7/7. ==================== King 24.8 lbs, mix of lakers, steel and salmon
  12. If you launch out of Henderson it takes a good 45 minutes with cooperating seas. The depth out there can be tricky and good electronics and the abiltiy to compensate a good chart is key. The edges are very steep in places and if you get going the wrong direction bad things can happen without the time to recover. Many rigger balls have come victim to the steep structure out to the lanes. It is a large area out there with water from 100' to 160's and you can get shallow fast if not careful. Not sure what the latest weather has done out there but it sounds like the rest of the lake is fine after the few windy days we had. Lots of bait everywhere. Find the Temperature and get ready. Good luck and be safe.
  13. I was in Henderson on Tuesday night and the reports from the east end are all good. Big browns still on attack around Gallo island and steady in the trench to the wall. Salmon fising from the lighthouse to the North Dune has been consistent. Not as many fish as west but still good. Some of the charter captains have been travelling out to the lanes with success. Steel and Kings are there but with the wind and the boats being blown off for the past three days the temps will be screwy and it may take a few days to set back up again. Good luck and always buddy up when you head out to the lanes. Its like the Bermuda Triangle out there, no cell service and always remember to turn your phone off or the battery will drain in no time. The program has been most of a spoons bite with some of FF. Fleas are bad. Good Luck it looks like the weather will be great.
