  1. ooooooh this is the alewive run?? So freshwater to freshwater.
  2. Perhaps the biggest strength of a seasoned fisherman is not the techniques learned over the years, but the network of other fishermen built over the years. Talking to find out what depth, what speed, what direction, what colors, what type of bait ... and keeping that information live as it changes day by day ... that cuts a lot of guesswork out. Don't be afraid to make friends at the dock ... and contribute to a central repository of information. Extract from those above, for a start ... the type of bait and colors that GENERALLY work this time of year, the depth (follow the pack), the speed, I'd say 1.8 mph to 2.8 mph ... start at 2.2 to 2.4 mph, and zig zag to get intel (outside line strike = the fish want faster speed, inside line = slower speed). If you mark fish, go through them at different angles at a consistent speed ... they'll strike one direction, but not the other direction, all other variables being the same. Take note of what worked, even a bite that you lost ... speed, direction, bait, color, depth ... everything ... and hone in on what is working ... try to apply to the other rods (with maybe some variability in the bait type and maybe accent colors).
  3. Unless it's a legit seller, with protection ... I stopped doing these transactions. It's just not worth it ... way too many scammers out there ... I'm guessing, any deal through a non-core purchasing route is like 30% to 50% chance dealing with a scammer.
  4. Mmmmmm .... reminds me of pickled herring. First time I had that, I knew what I've been missing all my life.
  5. All times of year. Color, speed is critical, and changes during the season. Blues/silvers work well in spring, then greens in mid summer, then reds/purples in late summer. Not a law ... but generally speaking, and I think the reason the color changes is due to the bait and nature changing from silver to greens over the summer ... and the red/purple is more aggrevating colors at the end of the season to simply get Mr. Salmon upset to strike.
  6. Can you stand back and take the ENTIRE back from starboard to port side.
  7. Agreed, that is going to be right in the wake of the ponton tube .... it will create a lot of turbulence in that area.
  8. Best to show a photo of the entire back of the transom .... not a side shot. What's important is how close it is to hull features, and trim plates.
  9. Well, my story is a bit different to yours ... it started with a boat floating without power ... and 3 ladies in bathing suits ... just kidding. But for real, we were out fishing and then I see this floating object ... so we navigate to it ... it's suitcase and it has floating balloons tied to it. I'm like, is this thing full of drugs or cash or something ... we were all confused .... and even worried to a degree. Then we saw the search and rescue air craft above us ... and figured it was a mock mission, and that was what they were looking for. So we moved on our marry way ... OR it might have been a suitcase full a drugs and cash ... not sure. LOL.
  10. The reality is that this action impacts the Indian's community as much as it impacts you. It is a dis-honor to his fellow community members, who will also suffer from a lack of fish in 3 years from now. What right does he have to do this to his own community members? This is something that should be taken up with the local Indian leaders ... this isn't about (just) us ... and the impact on us, but the impact on everyone, it's nature ... and what right does anyone have to abuse it ... and spoil it for everyone else?
  11. Winner, winner, chicken dinner! THIS, although I'd say 30 lb for flasher ... 40 lb gets thick, and hard to tie a good knot.
  12. I put it into a ziplock (unfrozen) at least 24h before I want to cook, and add chopped garlic, chopped onion, parsley, olive oil (couple of teaspoons), fish seasoning (of you're liking ... or you can just use salt, black pepper, dill, oregano), squeeze of lemon, a squirt of balsamic vinegar ... and then top it up so the fish is fully submerged with a good white wine (pinot grigio is good). Shake it up to mix the contents and let that baby soak for 24h. I then transfer the fish onto a cedar plank to cook ... and I keep basting with that "broth in the bag" every say 10 min ... especially closer to the end. Once finished, add a few thin slices of butter to melt over the fish and enjoy.
  13. Agreed. Bogo grip on a rope, as quickly as possible (keep photo time to a minimum ... 1 to 2 shots at most), troll with them hanging off the back. Go back to your normal fishing stuff. Once you see them shaking their heads, release boco grip, and most of the time, if their gills haven't been damaged ... they are good to go.
  14. I think for a charter captain ... the only way it works is if you love what you are doing. Because you aren't going to get rich being a charter captain.
  15. Braided wire is the way to go ... 30lb, 7 strand is good enough. It cuts through the fleas. You can take your chances with 30lb braid, but there will come a time where it will become unusable due to fleas. Never use mono ... you won't be able to put enough line on the reel (you want minimum 700 ft, preferably 1000 ft). Some days you need to set them deep and you'll have 300 ft out just trolling ... and then a salmon hits and takes another 300 ft. Mono stretches WAY too much, and you won't be able to pop the dipsey if you need to retrieve the line.
