  5. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s): 8/4 Time on Water: 630-730 - 2 - 630 Weather/Temp: HOT Wind Speed/Direction: Waves: 1-2 Surface Temp: 76 Location: Wilson LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 10 Total Boated: 5 Species Breakdown: 3kings, 2steelies Hot Lure: white tom mik fly Trolling Speed: ? Down Speed: 2.5 - 2.7 Boat Depth: 180 - 220 Lure Depth: 75 - 95 riggers - dipsys 160 - 300 ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS I was really excited to be out on the water at 630 - weather was perfect! Unfortunately the boat decided not to cooperate - temperature started rising and I cut it before we got too hot. Made it back to the dock and took a trip to the Boat Doctors in Olcott. Told them the problem I was having and said he would take a look at it as soon as he could. Boat was ready before 12 - I can't tell you how much I appreciate the service that has been provided to me at the Boat Doctors - straight shooter, great advice and very fair on prices. I will be sure to work with them going forward. So, we were back on the water and fishing a little after 2. We headed straight out of Wilson hit 100 feet and dropped the lines. Decided to ride with the waves and head west and I'm glad we did. Picked up a 10lb steelie around 230 in 180 feet of water down 85 on the rigger. He hit a magnum NK silver with an orange stripe. Good start to the day, the person I tasked with driving while I set up was having some issues keeping the boat straight so I jumped in the drivers seat for a bit. That turned out to be a mistake - I was watching the rods when a rigger popped and I couldn't get to it and my crew didn't really understand what was happening . So after another refresher we were good to go. Starting trolling with the wind and it made it much easier for them to keep the boat straight. Moved the right wire back to 160 from 140 and it starting thumping, grabbed it and picked up a nice 14lb king. Got it set back up at 160 and dropped the left back to 300 and that one started screaming. Gave the rod to one of the rookies and he was in for a pretty solid fight. I was cracking up when he kept having to shake his arm out. About 15 mins later we landed a nice 23lb King. I was happy we had a few in the boat and took back to the drivers seat to head back east to not get to far from port and let the rookies handle the rods. The rigger popped and Paul jumped right on that one and we grabbed anohter 10lb or so king. Then both divers start bouncing and taking line. I pulled up both riggers and let them work the fish. Paul end up dipping the rod down a little to low and created some slack and his was gone. We were able to get the other one in which turned out to be about a 14" steelie. Had a few more misses after that and decided to call it a day. After a not so pleasant start it ended up to be a pretty solid day! The 2 rookies hada good time and I"m sure they will be back out with me in the near future. Towards the end of the day they really started to figure it out. ====================
  6. FishUsa.com has a pretty solid selection as well.
  7. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: Thunderstruck ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s): 7/27 Time on Water: 6am Weather/Temp: Wind Speed/Direction: Waves: Surface Temp: 74 Location: Wilson LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 9 Total Boated: 8 Species Breakdown: 1 King, 8 steelhead Hot Lure: black and white dream weaver spoon Trolling Speed: Down Speed: 2 * 2.5 Boat Depth: 150 - 200 Lure Depth: 60 - 90 ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== Had a great day for the 2nd time out with a new boat! I ran two spoons on the down riggers and two coppers out the side. All the hits were on the down riggers - I must be doing something wrong with the copper? I tried any where from 150 to 300 feet back and everything in between. Also ran different color flashers and flies with no luck. I did catch one steelhead on a white fly but it was on the down rigger. The black and white spoon was hot! I need to get a couple more but can't find them anywhere. Caught the first steelhead in 183ft 70ft down at about 730. It was a little over 10lbs - it was a great fight to watch as I couldn't keep him in the water. We were pretty excited beause at least we knew we would not get skunked. I think I should have been a little deeper for the kings but was happy to at least be getting a few fish. At 930 I dropped the black and white spoon down to 85ft...it wasn't there 2 minutes and the drag started screaming. I grabbed the rod and handed it to my dad - he couldn't make any ground for a little bit and started to tighten up the drag on the rod. My friend Mark and I yelled at him and he left it alone for the rest of the fight. 15 minutes later we boated a 27.5lb King! All in it was a great day! I can't wait to get out next week and try to hammer them again!
  8. I appreciate the help! Hopefully I can catch a few fish this week! thanks again
  9. No i was running them on copper. So just a flasher and a fly? [ Post made via Android ]
  10. Name: Kyle Location: Wilson Home Port: Boat Name/Type: I fish for: salmon, steelhead and browns ================== I have fished the lake with my uncle quite a few times but am on my own now. I plan on running 30lb copper for dipsys (too light??) Picked up some flashers to run behind the dipsys - any preference on leader? Any color combos I should try? I did fish Sunday and picked up one steelhead on the 30lb copper back 190 spin dr with a blue fly. Missed another down 50 on the rigger black and purple nk spoon. 20 ft behind the ball. Not far enough? I really appreciate any and all help. My dad is coming out to fish Thurs n Fri and hoping to show him a good time! Thanks and good luck!
