  1. This^^^^^^^^ I run the walker 107mm which I believe are the same as a 001 dipsey. Always have them on a 3 setting and as a general rule I use 3:1 line out/depth achieved. I have touched bottom many times in 100+ fow with around 300' out running 30# 7 strand wire. I don't even look at the tables that come with them.....I think they are for mono.
  2. Fished in the NE'lys this am with a new to salmon fishing buddy and his cousin from Scotland. Lots of 3-4'ers rolling around so we stayed in tight. Worked bronte to past Mcisac's 70 -100'. Went 1/3 on bows. One nice one around 15lbs. All on spinny/flies ....wire dipseys 100-130 back. Water temps 49 down 70. Not a great day but if it wasn't a planned trip I definitley would have slept in. The amount of bait of Bronte right now is unreal.....fish are full.
  3. I know that spot.....Crabby Joes parking lot Good for you guys...nice king
  4. Fished solo and spent the first hour and a half looking for some fishy water and ended up finding a decent temp break with a few marks around. hoped they were kings but my suspicions were confirmed pretty quickly...lots of lakers. Worked from 70-140 fow .......Grimsby to 50 pt. from 830am till about noon with at least a dozen bites...all greasers...some nice fat ones too. Desperately looking for a King fix but the LT's saved the day....kinda fun on light gear. All fish came on spoons tight to the rigger ball. Surface temps 52-53.
  5. Nice Dude! I may give it a whirl in the AM. N winds are supposed to lay down overnight...we'll see what's around on the S shore with warmer water stacked up down there.
  6. Try fishing a little higher in the water column. We spanked em friday night on wire dipseys 140-160 back with big paddles/flys. went 12/15 in a few hours with most fish being matures and they were pretty dark for late july. Rockets took a couple as well. Fished the drop off 160-180 fow. down speed 2.4-2.6 on the fishhawk.
  7. The GOSD derby winner was over 40lbs last year with another at 39 and change. They are definitley out there.
  8. OK.......you got me....where or what is g? Do you mean g-bay?
  9. Do you have a speed/temp probe? Currents out that way have been crazy lately. Some days I have had to go over 4mph on gps to get a good down speed. Fish have seemed to be liking it fast 2.8-3.0 at the ball.
  10. Thanks Tom....Yeah I use that site too. I should have mentioned he was fishing around 200 fow which makes sense looking at the temp. map. hot hot summer.
  11. Yep, hopefully tomorrow aft. Talked to a buddy and down temps are much better in the West end today. 54 down 45'. He fished Bronte and did very well.
  12. Was 54 degrees down 140 off the bluffs on thurs. Hope you got high speed riggers and 15lb balls . Guys were reporting getting fish out of temp as high as 60' though. HIH
  13. We'll see......I may try and get out a couple afternoons this week. I work early mornings and am usually home by 1-2pm so I might try closer to home.
