  1. Low Baller I don't think you're crazy. I do that quite a few times a year just to get an extra couple of days fishing for steelhead in the river. People think I'm crazy too though.
  2. I'll throw my house, truck and boat in. Sk8man is right on, maybe a small King but from the picture I'd say Coho.

    I believe they will try for them all but at the very least the popular ones for the area you're in. East end 68-72 but with scanning radios should be able to pick up any. CG will also broadcast bad weather. Keep eyes to the west, if it starts to look bad a quick check for radar on a smart phone will help also. Lady O can rear her ugly head real fast if she wants too.

    I have only fished the east end and there are plenty of times when charter captains will issue bad weather approaching broadcasts even telling how much time before it should hit yet they are ignored. I would dare say it's the same on the entire length of the lake. They may not tell you their secrets of how and where they're fishing but they do look out for others safety and if they say it, believe it and quit.

    X2 on this. This was a tragedy in that a life was lost for no reason other than really really bad judgement and I agree with stupidity. Maybe at one time we've all done things that we shouldn't but no matter how you put it they were stupid except we lived for another day and hopefully learned. More than once I've seen boats that had no business being out as we were running back in. The sad thing is it will happen again just a matter of when. No fish or anything for that matter is worth it. Be safe today so you can fish tomorrow.

    Nice going on boxing out, too bad you have to leave. We're gambling on the lake laying down for thur and fri, keeping our fingers crossed and coming up.
