  1. The point I was trying to make was there are enough things that can happen while on a hunt which can effect the shot and if we

    can eliminate some of these things we will have better success and not have to deal with the negative things.


    Something similar to this happened to me once and my hunting buddies busted my chops for it. That helped me never to forget it and not make the mistake again.


    I didn`t say Dawson was stupid. I said it was a stupid thing that happened and all some of you can do is get belligerent.


    I believe Dawson`s post said "Any thoughts or comments are appreciated" with the key word being ANY. Not just yours.

  2. Fleettracker is correct.  I purchased new Cannon 10`s in 2012 and found that there were gaps between the pulley and the covers that surround the pulley and the cable was riding over the pully and getting stuck. At that point you had to disassemble the pulley assembly to get the cable free.


    I brought them to A & P Custome Tackle where I bought the riggers and they gave me new pulleys with the covers that ride very close to the pulleys and never had another problem.

    Set up just south of little salmon river and got first fish as we sent the first line out to the boards. Got set up and got the second fish shortly after.

    As we trolled past little salmon the water seemd to clear and the bite stopped so we turned and trolled south again. Picked up 2 more browns and the bite stopped for a while.

    Later in the morning the breeze started and the waves were around 1 ft and it clouded up and the bite was very good. Ran a 6 inch spinny with assorted small flies in the prop. wash but nothing seemed interested so we switched to flat lines with warrior spoons off the back and got a few more browns. Warriors were 4 inch brown trout and superman. The stick colors didnt seem to matter to much but were black back/silver sides / orange belly and Blue back/ silver sides/ white belly & brown with dark brown vertical stripes with white belly & clown and others. For the first time out this year it turned out great and hope theres more to come.

    Will have the boat the remaining of the year in Fairhaven. Does anyone know how the fishing is there?
