  1. Drove to Oswego made it out to lighthouse to find leftover rollers. They were 3 ft with 4s mixed in to rough for my boat then had a 5ftr toss my boat like a toy.upset ran in put it back on the trailer and headed back to pinegrove. Ran west to Mexico still 2ft plus rollers but set in 70ft zig zag 90ft to 60 blank screen some bait. Trolled to past catfish nothing. Turned out and headed deeper nothing. Ran to Sandy North doons. Set again in 95ft bam fish on! mag dipsy ff out 160. Broke off before nephew got the rod out of the holder. Made a couple passes nothing else. Looking forward to next year learned allot for first year 4 trips 8 adults 9 lost. Time to retire the ranger and get a lake boat.

  4. I can say I had a great time its frustrating and exsiting. I'm me made 5 trips I fish out of bass boat. I pick my weekends. Been teaching myself. Picking up bit and pieces from this site. After first 2 day trip I got 3 browns and lost 2 kings I was hooked. Got my sister going now helps allot with steering and she loves it. Second trip caught 4 kings first day lost three. Day two caught 1 lost 1 got blown off by 11. Same for most trips wind is a pain I know what my boat can handle but scares my sister so I play nice. Last trip this weekend we worked hard put allot of time in caught 4 lost 4 sat caught 1 lost 4 on sunday and caught a brown,couldn't figure out why just come unhooked one straighten a hook other broke the leader on the fly. Yes would I like to go out and catch fish every time yes I spent a poop load of money motels, rods, tackle,gas,down riggers. Now I'm looking at another boat for lake o. But I have great electronics on my boat sister autopilot.I still want more.I enjoy the challenge of the fish and the lake trying to kick me off! And any second a downrigger rod will go off or dipsey rod can start screaming!!# that's why we all go!
  5. Me and my sister did 4 for 8 inside of 90ft in Mexico to the plant sat and Sunday. Sat am in the dark went to the dunes started in 70 ft lost one dipsy wrapped both rods up and was gone had another straighten a hook on a pro fly. Nothing else until 10 then trolled across to Mexico. Did same Sunday no bites picked up and went to Mexico lost one within first 5 minutes.
  6. Headed home great weekend for the fishing out of the ranger! 4 for 8 on kings 1 brown. All ff no meat or spoon bites. Still figuring out the speed without a probe. What worked yesterday was different today kept a eye on other boats and stayed there speed. Some were going warp speed east so I pulled my bags was 2.5 and seemed like I was going over 3 by cable and dipseys pulling drag. Put one bag out caught a fish.

  17. Diver digger place in Michigan has them. Vid on YouTube.
  18. New to using them how fast do you let them go down im new to using them. I let it out 5ft drops or so afraid of manuel free spooling and flasher wrapping or something stupid. Think I have to clean and relube they get hung up and I have to push spool sometimes to get it moving.
