  1. Boater drowns off Crystal beach on weekend ! Boat apparently capsized ; life jackets do not work unless they are worn ! Boater was apparently with his grandson who was rescued .
  2. Many of our recent fish have been on a free slider not fixed ; length is important for us 5 to 6 feet , longer tangles more less for us does not work so far but worth a try !
  3. Re; fishing solo . Some of the best company I have had has been fishing solo ! If you can take a kid fishing great company !
  4. Attach to the lower lip , run the boat slowly with the lip gripper tied to a rope tied to the boat . Watch the fish should eventually start to swim on its own THEN release it ! If it does not start to swim probably done in and should be harvested . Saw a fresh floater last time out , sad to see !
  5. Define " bad gas " Laker 1 ? I always filter my gas and use octane 92 [ no ethanol] gas ! The Yamaha dealer still advised the fuel additive !
  6. They make the rules take it or leave it ! I fish a lot solo and will not enter those derbies !
  7. Last year I packed in my 2cycle OMC kicker , 8 hp. for my 16 ft. StarCraft , spent the money for a 9.9 Yamaha and have not looked back ! Stern weight was not a major problem . You tend to get what you pay for !
  8. Bottom line as posted ; if you do not know what it is release it ! No such thing as a stupid question !
  9. Bottom line IMO , as previously posted proper set of the DRAG is the bottom line ! Lost too many fish with snubbers !
  10. Start by keeping all hooks sharp !
  11. Ditto on lure retriever IMO
  12. We attach a lip gripper type to the fish attached to a short rope troll slowly with the fish off the stern [ ie piscatorial CPR ] if the fish can eventually swim away on its own that is the best we can do ! If not I have takers for every Lake Trout we bring in !
  13. Again a good start a book " Keating on Kings " by Captain Dan Keating ! Gives you a basic start . Salmon fishing aint cheap be prepared !
  14. Sorry to ruffle so many feathers or scales , will not do it again !
  15. We caught them regular without fishing for Lake trout ! " One mans trash is another mans treasure ! " They were a great " kid fish " for us with both grandsons getting entered in the SCG&F summer derby until they got knocked out ! I had takers for every fish we caught , the cook from Laos preferred them to salmon ! [ read the country of origin for commercial fish CHINA !! along with the COVID 19 ! ] Do not think that COVID 20 is not waiting for the prime time SARS 17 years ago . Don't we have another local INSECT with a 17 year life cycle LOL ! Like Mr. Trump or not he tells it like it is ! IMO !
  16. The Lake Trout we have been catching must be Canadian !
  17. Start with book " Keatings on Kings " by Captain Dan Keating ; there are multiple editions , a good place to start ! Go on a charter to fast tract ! Salmon fishing is not cheap be prepared !
