  1. Way to go on a 30 lber! I've landed plenty of fish at the back of the boat, but never had one commit suicide into the prop!
  2. x2 on adding the heat shrink. I also keep some in case I need to repair a copper on the lake....not that I have ever tangled one so bad I had to cut it and splice it back together.
  3. I'd be curious to hear how your trip turns out. I'm planning on heading up later this week. We are going to start fishing Thursday afternoon and go through Saturday weather dependent. The wind doesn't look great early this week. It looks like things might get stirred up pretty well.
  4. A few more easy fuel related issue checks: Make sure spiders / bugs / etc. isn't clogging your tank vent. This can cause a vacuum in your fuel tank which is more noticeable when you try to run (i.e. draw more fuel.) Make sure your fuel line isn't collapsing on itself and restricting flow. Replace your anti-siphon valve. This should be at the tank. Sometimes they get gummed up / clogged.
  5. Thanks for the update. I'm looking forward to my trip next week.
  6. Multi Function Display - I think Raymarine uses this most.

    dipsy spread

    I used TrueTrips (like a Jet) on Erie. They have a trip mechanism like a dipsy to make the retrieve easier.. The 50 size certainly would get you down pretty deep, but I have never tried them for Salmon.
  8. I'll second Gill-T's recommendation on the proper wire knot and never using the crimps for downrigger cable. I also have had good luck with the Cannon terminator kits, though they are much more expensive than a knot...
  9. I'd suggest Amish Outfitters downrigger shockers to help with the downriggers / ball break offs. I like fixed or free sliders too. To me they are easier / faster to set.
  10. I stumbled onto the dwb pattern a couple years ago after I let one of my kids pick out a lure at the store (it wouldn't have been my choice). Now instead of one dwb I have lots.....and I always run one!
  11. I agree, most of my fish have come off spoons with some on meat and FF's. I was doing well with gators and DWB, plus Carbon 14.
