  1. Fished morning till 1ish. Three. One mature, one about 10, one skip. Spoons, wonderbread , 2 carbon black. fished 70-130ft. Allot of marks 70-80. Couldn't move much. Meat on dipsy's didn't get one rip today.
  2. I've had a few frozen off. So definitely watch it now. The Neutrogena 100spf sheer stuff works well on face. Not greasy at all. Holds up well. Protects well. Thinksport zinc works well also. Doesn't rub in as well, but works well. I see Neutrogena has a zinc based now. I'll try that this year. I've tried allot of masks The simms masks have been the best. Actually wearable and can still breath. I usually use those for those direct sun days with no clouds when sun is at peak. Hard to beat that. The simms sun shirts are pretty good too. Actually keep you pretty cool also.
  3. I currently use HDS8 Gen 2. I agree with the 83Hz comment above. Definitely cone angle. Also blow back. As for arc's, ping speed up high. Chart speed high. I wouldn't worry too much. Especially running deep. Just not enough resolution on the screen. You can try zooming in on the target range or run split screen. You'll only see those perfect picture arc's if they're right under you cone. I attached 2 screen shots. Both 83hz. One shallow, one deeper. I was on fish both days. Shallow was browns. Deep salmon.
  4. Hello All. I'm always messing with my electronics. I hear some people say they can pick up fish at cruising speed. Have any of you had any success with that. I'm using Lowrance Gen2. Thanks.
  5. Been using 20lb Big game for years. It's been good for me. That 45 will hold a good amount. I did try braid a few times when I had smaller reels and needed the line capacity. You won't need that on the 45. But the no stretch is definitely a plus. I use swivel for all my connections.
  6. I"ve had the cutco for about 20yrs. Send it back every winter for a free factory sharpening. Keeps a great edge all season. No complaints here. it's been a good one.
  7. I've been running the Church Walleye boards and the Offshore (med size, don't know model number) Both pretty comparable. Slight preference to the offshore boards. Think they tack a bit better and a bit more off to the side. I did put the pinned OR clip on the back of the church board, prefer that instead of the board sliding down.
  8. 30's for wire and lower LC. 45 for 10 color. I changed my reels over last year. Mostly for faster retrieve rate. So much better. 10 Color would fit on the 30, but you'd be down to a pretty thin spool once it's all out and on a board. That will decrease your line pickup.
  9. Last time out picked up a few on riggers/spoons. 5ft back. Thanks for the comments.
  10. Sad story. Was out of Olcott that day. Saw the rescue boat and helicopter running around. Scary when you see the reality of situations like that. Unfortunate for the the family and people involved. Feel for them. Will be a good reminder to double check and have all my safety gear in order and not buried in storage.
  11. Tough bite out there today. Out of Olcott. Dropped in at 100ft checking if any stagers are around and started trolling north. Marked some good stuff, but only one quick rip. All warm water moved in. Here's a picture of one that came up for a look at my rigger.
  12. Thanks for all the comments. All make sense. At the time I was seeing this I was running 20-30ft back.
  13. Thanks. Went out this morning. Didn't last long. A bit much for my 19ft. I'd say it was 3-5ft, with a bigger one mixed in. Never dropped the probe, but surface temps were back in the low 70's.
