  1. I saw you at the launch. No problems getting out the channel. My sonar said 2.5 just before the Marina. Landed one 22 #. 165 ft of water down 60. Cut bait. Hooked 2 more but they got off. Tough solo when it’s kicking up IMG_2134.thumb.JPG.2c5420b8715c622e3f4fedaa6a0a6ecb.JPG

  2. Went outta Westcotts on 7/1. Stay closer to red buoy on your way out and in. At least 3.5 ft deep. Motored out and dropped lines off the lighthouse. Couldn’t find good temp break. Fished Lakers to try to get my buddies kid in something. He reeled in a nice one!

    Went outta Stony today… there was an empty double axel and triple axel trailer in the lot, so I figured it was more than deep enough for me. TackleThis (the charter boat for those that frequent here) was tied up at its dock too. Probably 3.5 feet at the shallowest. Cold weather and rain and it was 45 degrees down 70! Lots of boats moving around. Found marks. Fished 135, 120ish, 90ish, structure, flats. No takers.

  3.  I worry about Wescotts opening to the lake. It's typically shallow, so low water would be even sketchier.

    Agreed. You could walk on the jetty and look, it’s not far a walk. Know where the spit bar is... If it looks too sketchy, move on to Henderson, i mean if you’re passing it. The thing I like about westcott’s is you’re right into the bay quick and can put the throttle down. Anyway, I’ll try to check it Mem weekend.

  4. Also, I swung by westcotts early May... floating dock was in (pic from May 1). Launch looked good. Didn’t use it though. Went out of Sackets, pulled the boat around the corner of the cement slabs to get in easier. Lol! IMG_6266.JPG

  5. Went out for eyes today in the BRB. We went 2 for 3. Lost a monster. At one point while at the helm, I heard the pee can hit the deck and “fish on!” Ended up landing a D.O. fish! He did manage to tuck it while fighting the fish, so does it qualify? Not sure it matters! 🤣 Great to be out! IMG_6280.JPGIMG_6283.JPG

  6. Shakedown out of Stony creek Friday evening. It’s definitely shallow as mentioned. I have a trophy 1802. Buoys are in, but a couple knocked over/missing. I followed the tracks on my gps from previous trips and was fine.
    Got lines in shortly out into the lake and headed south. Picked up a laker first, then an eye, then a brown. Also out Saturday 9:30ish-4:30ish. A big brown and 2 Lakers. IMG_0838.JPGIMG_0841.JPGIMG_6136.JPGIMG_0852.JPG

  7. If you read previous threads, you’ll find a lot of members use 30lbs mono on there rigger rods for salmon. It helps to keep the fleas off when they get bad. Use a fluoro leader off the mainline. No need to spool fluoro on the entire reel (although it’ll work, it’s just more expensive). I use 17-20lbs fluoro for leaders for salmon. So to answer your initial question, you should be fine. You could always tie on a lighter leader if the fish get finicky.

  8. Not to burn spots, but does anyone want to point me in likely directions for Pike in the BRB or Henderson area?

     

    I haven’t targeted Pike in quite some time. We used to fish in May in Henderson Bay for Pike (Sackets side near Horse island and Bolton’s). But they would more out shortly after Looking for more likely places near by and for more of the fishing season.

     

    Thanks!

  9. When I run sacs, I just barely hook a couple strands or mesh and have the whole hook exposed. The fish don’t mind one bit.

  10. Was out yesterday in the trench. First solo trip. Dropped riggers at 7, pulled lines at 10. Had 47 degrees down 90ish. The were marks on the screen. Counted 22 boats at one point. Didn’t see any nets move, and only had a small brown when I went in shallow for some relief from the winds. No skunk! I’ll take it for my first solo trip. I was happy to get my gear in an manage to steer!IMG_4929.JPG
