  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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....
  9. Fleas were brutal for me yesterday out of Wilson. Think the NW blow today will move them out for now?
  10. We will see. I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt and hope that they are being proactive as opposed to being reactive in the future. If a reduction means I catch 4 kings for every 5 kings that I caught in the previous years, then that's fine by me (for the short term). If the reduction in stocking means a short term sacrifice to ensure the fishery is here long term, then I'm all for it. If it's an underhanded attempt to get rid of the Kings, then that would be unfortunate, and I'd obviously oppose it. That being said I marked a ton of bait off the bar the last few weeks, but that doesn't mean anything because I don't have year over year hard data to compare.
