  1. Does anyone know where to get big, key ring size split rings? I’m trying to attach a treble to the rear of a spin doctor. I drilled a hole about a quarter inch in from the edge, center of the tail. I tried regular key rings a couple years ago, and big lakers just straightened them out. 

  2. Hey Pap, I was fishing on the Olcott pier for salmon and another guy was telling me about his trips to NW Canada. He said Lac la Martre was on his list. I googled it, thought about and pulled the trigger. I had never been on anything more than a local charter but thought what the hell. I’m so happy I did.

     No walleye in LLM. It’s only 60 ft deep so they dont get the true monsters some other deeper lakes get. I did catch 45 lakers 20 lbs and over, so it has numbers.

  3. For the past 2 years I’ve been going to Lac La Martre in the Canadian NWT for lake trout and pike. I’m thinking of  trying a king salmon trip this year instead. I’ve been doing alot of online research, but there's so many , its tough to tell which ones really are worth the money. I need a lodge that provides a guide, any recommendations are greatly appreciated.

  4. What kind of net ?

    I've been using a Cummings landing net with a telescoping handle ( gotta be 7 ft ) on the piers for salmon. The handle is fine , but the net is the basic big hole mesh. A big salmon flopping around can make a tangled mess. I want to upgrade, but I'm not sure  which kind works best. Rubber, Rubber coated mesh, PVC coated ? 

  5. A stradic 4000 is a great reel. I started out witha Cabelas 9 ft heavy power salmon rod for $99 4 years ago. This year I decided to try an upgrade and bought a St Croix Wild river 9ft heavy power salmon rod for $199. No difference in my opinion, I just spent an extra $100 for the St Croix name.

    I like the 9ft rod for casting on piers, but everybody has their own preference. I also like #20 power pro.

  6. Went back to LLM in the Canadian NWT at the end of July. Fished for lakers in the morning and pike in the afternoon. Capt. Vince gave me a couple spin doctors and said to put some hooks on them. They absolutely crushed the lakers. It was my "secret lure". The other guides were asking mine what we using, but he wouldn't tell themIMG_0080(1).JPGIMG_0099.JPGIMG_0098.JPG

  7. Punta Cana

    Looks I'll be going to Punta Cana in mid October. I'd like to get in some fishing for 1, maybe 2 days. Does anyone have a good captain or charter service to recommend? Prefer deep sea for big fish but will consider anything thats biting in October. Thanks.

  8. I dont have a boat so I dont salmon fish out on the lake, except for a few charters each year. I did go on a trip to the NWT last summer and we used a plug made by Tomic. It had 1 treble hook bottom front. We used them for lakers, my guide raved about them.
