  1. Where did you get that net? In the market for a big rubber net for Kings and haven't been able to find one yet.
  2. I tried the uni knot and the knot was too big to pass through the levelwind. Tried the blood knot and it worked like a charm.
  3. Agreed it was a good day. It's just been weird. The first light bite has been almost non existent with the bite starting around 7 for me each day. The evening bite has been outperforming mornings. We aren't marking much at all. Weird year. Not the first and won't be the last.
  4. The fishing is definitely much slower than last year so far. We went out at first light not sure what the water temps were going to look like. We started shallow and aimed straight north to find where the best water was. Found the fish in 300 fow. Steady pick for about two hours then it just died. 6/7. 5 Kings and a Steelhead. Good size. No real pattern as every rod fired. Green spoons and green flies. Wire divers have been good early lately then the riggers and braid divers seem to pick up mid morning. Hopefully the fishing gets better soon. Not sure what’s going on?
  5. Hey. Fish were out deeper today. 180-220 fow. The inside water was dead for us. We moved out deep and had a steady pick until the black flies chased us off. Green spoons and flies down 70-90.
  6. I haven't been able to find any bigger fish in the last two weeks. My catch numbers have been solid, but I just can't seem to break the 15lb mark. Are you guys finding any fish with size?
  7. Thanks! Was out yesterday the only rod we moved was a rigger down 100’ with a green dolphin spoon in 100-150 fow. They were sitting down deep. High rigger didn’t have a touch.
  8. How’s the wind? I thought they were calling for light SW but it looks like W at 10. Thinking of going out for the evening bite.
  9. I've been trolling Lake O for 15 years without downspeed. Too many life events recently to make the $1,000 investment in a probe. I've had many days with insane numbers. Just pay attention to the angle of your rigger cable and listen for the hum. Or, as mentioned above, look at the bend in the dipsy rods as well. Downspeed is super important but not having it won't break your day if you pay attention to some other details.
  10. Any time it's an East/Northeast wind you can disregard the wave forecast. It gets rough fast out of that direction. Unless it's under 5 mph be prepared to bounce. Plus the easterly winds generally shut down the bite.
  11. Well my day was pretty much identical to yours. We wanted to fish deep but couldn’t and picked away at browns and small kings all morning. Being this late in August I thought for sure there would be some big kings in tight early but we didn’t mark anything with size. August is always so damn windy.
  12. Thanks guys that was very helpful. I usually use Sailflow, Windy.com, and NOAA as my go-to's. NOAA is calling for 1-3 feet but that is the forecast for the full day. I'm going to assume the early am forecast will be 1-2's and will build to 3's with the shift to East in the PM.
  13. What are you guys thinking of the forecast for tomorrow morning? It says Southeast 10-15 until an afternoon shift to E/NE. Anyone think it'll be too rough from 5am-11am? My rule is typically anything from a variation of a South wind is typically a go. Don't want to get up at 3:30 am if there is a more accurate forecast out there....
