  1. For me, 50 lb braid with a 20 lb mono or fluorocarbon leader about 10 ft. long gets the job done in most situations.
  2. reel thrill, now that you mention it I recall catching 10 to 12 inch rainbows in the rivers years ago during the chinook run.
  3. I was thinking the immature fish stay in the lake year round even in the blue zone.
  4. Went out today from 1 pm to 6 pm. Fished the blue zone most of the afternoon then about an hour in tight.Well today is my first skunk of the year. Marked tons of bait between 260 and 360 fow down between 120 to 180 deep. What do you guys think,is it time to put the boat away?
  5. I just seen chinooks post... ya it could be that...with that manual you could check it out.
  6. It sounds like you have a maintanance issue to take care of so the computer set the rpms that low so you don't damage the motor. I don't know if your gauges are equipped to give out maintenance codes? if not a maintenance manual for your motor is invaluable. also you can post your question on ( I BOATS .COM). Find the link to your specific motor and post a question there,They are very knowledgeable and helpfull Good luck.
  7. Head south east to 280 feet of water and have your dipsies set around no later than 7am ,1 back 150 ft another back 200 ft,both on #3 setting ...as soon as you get hit,work that area. Good luck

    To be more specific I was on a tributary off Georgeon Bay, Lake Huron.It is on the Canadian side of the province Ontario. I skimmed through the Ontario fishing regulations summery for 2016 online and did not find such restrictions. Thanks for the heads up,its good to know if I visit your side.

    Poached Steelhead

    After a day fishing on a Lake Huron tributary I proceeded to clean my keep on the river bank.This one Chinook 15 lbs, I had completely gutted it heart and all and as I was cutting the blood line inside the spine the fish kicked out of my hand and swam away!
  10. I have seen and caught many browns in rivers during their fall spawn run as far back in my youth as I can remember , maybe 20 years. I can't comment on recent years though because trolling in the lake is mostly what I do. In the spring I have caught them trolling in 10 fow with stelth presentation, long lines etc. preferably where murky water meets clear water. As far as your observation of poor spawning numbers...good question!
  11. What happened to the 10 fish average days?
  12. Went out this morning 6-11/30am,100-180fow...washed tackle all morning.
  13. Went out yesterday morning. At 6:45am dipsie with ff fires...pulled like a horse for 3 secs and gone!!! Probably my first king of the year. I reeled in and found my line snapped between dipsie and flasher...what!!! Found my drag fully tight...man...didn't move a rod the rest of the morning.
