  1. Spiny water fleas cline to your line and clump up in your top 2 guides...Then you you can't reel anymore line in. [ Post made via iPhone ]
  2. I dragged a 14 in perch last spring for about a half hour on jr t-stick [ Post made via iPhone ]
  3. ...OTISCO! Lake O was gonna be rough so headed down there and caught a couple tiger muskie. Ran sticks off the planer boards. They are cool fish! [ Post made via iPhone ]
  4. ...to get only one a 9lbs er would make me happy! Nice catch! [ Post made via iPhone ]
  5. Sounds like it was a lot rougher than predicted! Hope she lays down for me tomorrow. [ Post made via iPhone ]
  6. I would get an hds or one of the new hummingbirds. [ Post made via iPhone ]
  7. You can get ugly stik downrigger combos from musket creek outdoors. Rod and reel for $79. The reels are not the greatest but will catch fish. You can upgrade those down the road. Spool them with 25 or 30 lbs mono. Then get a couple wire dipsey set ups and some flasher/flies from atommic. [ Post made via iPhone ]
  8. They might not slide down initially. But after you a make a few turns they work their way down. If i run out of releases i will reel the board in and start over.
  9. Don't get the elite dsi...it maxs out at 300 ft.
  10. Those look really fishy!! [ Post made via iPhone ]
  11. Thanks Uncle Buck! I got 6 of the 8' 3" ugly stiks. Might just try using a couple of those. What's 9 inches? LOL Still wondering how you spent 9 days in the fairest of havens! Although i'm sure you were out-to-sea and/or drinkin "ices" for most of the time. I'm sure it wasn't spent admiring all them "honeys" at the beach.
  12. Maybe a couple split shot on the spoons to get them down a little. [ Post made via iPhone ]
  13. I like a 10 foot leader. But I would just flat line some floating stick baits or some spoons 150 ft behind the boat. Fire tiger is a hot color or black/silver. You don't need the bottom bouncers. [ Post made via iPhone ]
  14. Is the ugly stik 9 ft light action BWD1101 good for copper?
  15. I have the manual uni-trolls...they aren't too bad to crank up. [ Post made via iPhone ]
  16. They are not heavy enough nor can you figure out how deep your lines are running. In the summer, salmon are usually suspended near the thermocline over very deep water. An example would be to mark fish 60-80 feet down over 250 feet of water on a typical July day. With dipseys you can guestimate how far down your lures are running by an unscientific rule of every 3 ft of wire line out gets you 1 ft in depth. So you might start running your dipseys back 200 ft back. Then if you see marks on your fishfinder at 80 feet down, you let another 25 feet of line out to get down deeper. The dipseys are stealthier than a downrigger because your lines are further away from the boat. If you want to catch salmon on the cheap...buy two tite-lok rod holders, a good fishfinder with gps speed, two of those wire dipsey combos and a few flasher/fly combos. Last summer was my first year trolling for salmon and i got hits or caught fish every time out on my dipsey rods. Downriggers were not as fruitful.
  17. Dipseys on wire line with flashers/flies. Downriggers with stinger size spoons. Then run a mag size spoon on a slider rig...take a 15 ft piece of floro or mono and tie a swivel on each end. Put spoon on one side...then clip other to your line (after it is set). Flip spoon out in the water and let slide down. Or you can fasten it with a half hitched rubber band to keep it at a certain depth as you lower the ball with main line attached. [ Post made via iPhone ]
  18. Run two riggers with sliders and two wire divers. [ Post made via iPhone ]
