  1. I was out last sat and they were almost nonexistent off sandy creek in 125-200 feet. I do use flea flicker and blood run on my rigger poles, but my wire dipsies were coming up almost clean. non on rigger cables. Picked up 3 kings lost 2. Fished 47 deg to 52 where ever it was found in above mentioned depth. They are darkening a little now. Maybe try some 55-60 deg also.

  2. Went out Sandy Monday and the fleas are there also. They were mixed with the cotton and were a major P.I.T.A. to get off the line . 2 salmon one 16 the other 9.5 ,175 feet both on FF one rigger parked at 130( current blow back ,actual depth was about 105-44deg) and the other a dipsey with UV flasher and green atomic fly out 175 on 2 setting. Lost one also on same dipsey set. The dipsey fish was definitely out of temp. 16 lb female had eggs in her. Strange?

  3. I have picked up a couple on green uv rotating flasher with green atomic fly on a dipsey rod and I have been having good success with a 6-8ft cheater attached to cable and the  main fish line with a rubber band located 8-10 feet above bottom spoon. I use a 3in spoon for the cheater similar in color to the larger bottom spoon.  Bottom spoon is 15-20 feet back from ball. I also tend to put a rotating triangle flasher 4-6 feet back attached to the ball's rear loop, added attraction that works often.

  4. I believe these aluminum boats have metal stringers, except for the front engine mount which is a small block of wood attached to metal. My starcraft islander has such set up. The transom wood should be looked at. If it was stored covered all the time (and in the slip) the transom bottom should be OK.

  5. I have a place on Keuka and a walleye carcass washed up on my shore last year. It appeared to be about 15-16 inches but it was only a head and skin. It looked like it was filleted. Maybe caught somewhere else and brought home and cleaned. Surprised the heck out of me, didn't know they were in there. Fished that lake since I could hold a pole, never caught one.
