    Our Compromise -20 ft Sea ray
  1. hairybumcrack. Those are words of wisdom. Always check the local Buoy weather reports before going. Its a free service and saves a wasted car ride. We like to go out with a 10 km or less wind and maybe a 1/2 metre wave. A slight ripple seems better than perfectly flat for us, but to hear those rigger cables humming is nice.
  2. D giroux. Well that's a tough day. when fish are not in the boat.. Our family enjoys fishing too. We go out at Cobourg usually at 6am and mark fish on the finder. Then sometimes we go an hour or 2 before things start to happen. I m captain DAD and try all sorts of rigs ,flies and spoons. We use 5 rods and it is a bit of work. Finally a rod pops Yahoo and the fun starts..Our 2 trips so far have produced. 1 day 2 bows and a 15 pound king for Garnett. The 2nd trip was about the same Mackenzie got 2 bows and lost a big one. Her friend Rob pulling in a 15 pound king. It is hard when they are on the screen and not biting. Keep changing stuff and change your speeds and direction. Down under has some strange currents. The top boat speed is Not What your Baits are moving for sure. We use a sub troll 900. Temp and ball speed at 2.5 up to 3. we are going this Saturday or Sunday. Best of Luck and Keep your lines tight. Go catch them.

    Canon ball run in...

    The chrome sharks are the best for tracking so we have learned, They also sink really fast to the bottom. I donated one 12 lber to the lake when my rigger clutch free spooled when it was just hanging off the boom. Darn hate those days,
  4. yep we have been getting some big kings. Last week of august we were 4/4, took 70 + pounds 2 kings 1x 29.5 and 1 x 24.7,2 rainbows 1x 10 lb and 1x12 lb .trolled in shallow first then moved out to 250 FOW. The bows were actually down 80 to 90 ft quite deep but awesome fishing. We went back out on Sunday and got 1/4 a beautiful 24 lb newbie on board let a few go to get bigger. Go get em.

    Leadcore or wire ?

    I agree When the tip pops ,Crank, Crank, Crank, Then when you feel the fish set it. One must master the art of a Downrigger. Many a Great Fish have been lost because of the Bowline slack release. Speaking from Experience myself..

    Leadcore or wire ?

    Your choice of rods is very similar to our set up. We run 1 Dipsey rod out on port side and one dipsey out starboard, then we have 2 down riggers with 2 rods . One down rigger runs Moore temp and speed torpedo with a Flasher and spoons with one slider on top. A clean set up without all the rods. Last weekend on Sunday, We had Fish on all morning with a Big double header at 10:10 am at 195 foot of water down 95. Also We put Grand pas old Lucky favorite Lead core out the middle and let all 10 colours go with 20 feet of mono 50 lb. We run 5 rods and 2 with sliders = 7 .One fish peeled over 450 feet off on the port side Dipsey rod WEEEEE. Hold ON
  10. Here is a beginners question, I hear a lot about copper and steel lines, no fleas stick , How would I use them on our boat with 2 dipsey rods and 2 downriggers. I would like to try some for the price. User info make a deal. Thanks Len

    We had some really nice kings on, 1- 24 and 1 -14 this past weekend and the fleas were getting pretty heavy. Got 2 in and OOOPs let 3 go to grow bigger, the lines jammed up even with power pro super braid. Smack tip down against water Hard and fast shakes some off and Keep reeling with tension On. That's called Fishing
  12. Going out to Port Hope on Sunday at 5;00 ,out to the 150 foot mark and down to find temps. Puke and mongoose on rods already green flasher/dipseys and flies for sure. One long lead core full 10 colours always takes fish. Sounds like you had a pretty fun filled week
  13. Any one fishing out of Port Hope ,Going out on Sunday /26 Catching any Fish and how far out ,Where to start? Any tips up? Thanks
  14. Anyone have info on the North Shore, near Port Hope. Going out Sunday 5 am, any fish caught, and how far out? 20 foot sea ray ready to go. Any tips up?
  15. Sounds like a Great morning on the water. Even better when the kids are aboard. Good Times Always. LBT1
