  1. Wow . That's terrible. They had another that was sinking last weekend there
  2. Size 1 trebles for standard spoons and 1/0 for mags
  3. Fishing remains incredible. Lines getting hit as soon as you put them down. Riggers at 50 and 65' down . divers out 150' and 180'. Had a moment to get a 250 copper out and it immediately got smoked. Pulled the tx44 under and snapped the braid backing. Kids spotted the board so we swung around and grabbed the board with the fish still attached. I hand lined it in and got all the gear back. We didn't stay out long with the chop building. 160 fow was loaded with bait and fish and we had it mostly to ourselves.
  4. Oh yes. They had a blast. How do you like your boat? I will be in the market for a big aluminum soon and I'm trying to narrow down my list of boats I like
  5. Stupid bite out of sandy this morning. Kids had the day off so we went fishing. Lines in at 5:30 and the action never stopped. I was exhausted by 6:30.100 to 160 fow is covered with fish. Had 44 degrees down 60. Never got a full spread in the water. We had over 50 bites and put about 40 in the boat including 10 kings over 20 pounds, 8 Lakers and our first steelhead of the year to finish the day.
  6. I took my kids out of sandy this morning. The bite was fast and furious till about 9:00 in 150 to 200 fow. Then it was a grind till about 11:00 when we got back into them east of sandy in 180 fow. Northeast troll was best for us all day.
  7. I bought a couple of the new saltists to try out this year. Only used them 4 or 5 times so far but they have been awesome. I will report back at the end of the season
  8. Anybody know some one that will come to your house and shrink wrap? Monroe County area
  9. 10 color and if you are making spring trips then you will want to add a 5 color to your arsenal eventually
  10. Sorry to hear about your trouble Brian. It was a horrible day for us too. Lost fish and then our own boat trouble. I am already looking forward to next year.
  11. Hamlin today was choppy this morning and then slowly laid down
  12. I fished the bald eagle tournament today out of sandy. We caught fish from 80` out to 180. Kings,cohos,steel and lakers.100 for to 130 was best for us for bigger kings
  13. Copper is so soft that there is no need for anything special. A steel eye or ceramic is good as long as it is big enough
  14. Yes there are some crazy currents that happen out there and they will effect cannon ball weights when you get then deep. It was mentioned above that shark style and torpedo weights will track much better. There are some guys on this site that make both styles and I highly recommended them
  15. Keep the boat going straight when putting lines out. Deploy dipsey very slow. I would lose the wingers and try. Turn very slowly when making turns.
  16. Steelhead Fishing has been great so far. Kings are slow so far but they will be easier to dial in once the lake sets up

    Sold / Closed Oneida May 30th

    Nice change of pace. Some good looking filets. I love that cheek meat
  18. With all the dead and dying alewives around all we are doing is supporting a healthy bird population. Salmon were originally stocked to make sure there wouldn't be massive bait fish die off
  19. Agreed it is time to up the stocking #'s. They went too far with the stocking cuts in the first place. I could understand their logic behind the the 1st round of cuts but then they cut again. They can start by bringing the king pen project back to sandy
  20. You can see it on the satellite images from today
