  1. usually at the losing end of wind and wave predictions. given the reports we were blessed with near perfect conditions!
  2. It has been a few weeks since fishing lake o... kids travel sports need i say more! I was not sure the wind was gonna cooperate and at 405am texted my buddy that i was pulling the plug on the trip. After that i again checked the Noaa, weather channel, wx bug, and measurements at buoy. decided we should go and left house at 420 ... got to sandy launch and was surprised it was a ghost town. followed another boat out channel and thought they look like they might know where to go for kings... as i follow they slow and set up for browns in 70' or so. we pressed on and set up i think in the 200-250 range. ended up the best water was 350-450 went around 9/12. 3 kings at around 20 & 2 kings 16-18#. boated 2 small steelhead also and the rest small kings. 300 wire, 325,375 copper, 70 and 90 rigger took fish. green dot w glow fly, kos, gator, bad toad, and FLT custom took fish. mags and standard sizes. 2.3-2.5 gps. it was one of my better days out there this year. glad we went! rod ninja and my buddy jody got to bring in the big ones! nice to see face on an 11 year old or a guy that barely fishes, hold a rod as it peels nearly 400' of wire out. Brett and I shared the captain and first mate position i guess! neither one of us has done much reeling of kings this season. Another great time with friends and my son. you should see this kid go after a rod! here r some pics.. good luck and be safe! Dan
  3. i was walleye fishing on erie this week and the reaction to losing that fish and your gear was not unlike ours when dropping big walleyes half way to boat. Hooked some dandies but many shook off to live another day! great video!
  4. ditto..we fished from 27-30th out of barcelona for our pseudo annual trip. they r shallow and with the calm seas and added boat traffic ..( which was surprising for mon-wed) they eemed to chew more in lower light conditions and to around 10pm. the white bass and drum were relentless. we boated easy 60+ over the 3.2 days of fishing and that is prob low. they hit everything at any speed and the dreaded propeller action of there body pulling thru the water was maddening! night fishing was fun... nice to see the reflection in the eyes as u bring them in. we pulled only sticks for 75% of trip, pulled worm harnesses first day but phased them out of spread. Glad u found some fish! Dan
  5. sure these come up after i order 3 rods from overtons... broke tip from 8' rod. wonder if the 8'6" tip would have matched? let me know if "sale" falls thru! lol. Dan
  6. Will there be one this year? I participated last year and thought it was a great tourney! Hoping there will be one since i will not be able to do SCS:( Dan
  7. can u get from gander? i have to get an 8' too and have those 8'6" ... nice rods
  8. congrats! Were u out of Sandy? I may have launched next to you. Looks like you found a decent class of fish. we picked away at teenagers. Great job!
  9. easy solution... have Bill rig both sides of the boat!!! lol! seriously though.. i remember a few occasions where my buddy and i ran the exact same cowbell combo. i rigged one side he the other. one side always seem to out fish the other. lots of variables .....
  10. Your site getting up and running is def in my thoughts and prayers Bob. Funny I come across this thread since I have been mentally preparing an order and specifically NEED a certain limited production pattern! Best quality and some of the best fish catching patterns out there! Dan
  11. congrats! sounds like a great trip. thanks for posting! i fished the am and wound up with a mix bag of skippys, few decent lakers, and a 16# king. i fished inside of 200fow.
  12. well done guys! Wish i was there! heading tomorrow hope the wind hasnt messed up too much out there!
  13. 2 were hooked in mouth and the other in gill plate. all a snag i am sure.
  14. Part of todays catch! Got a brownie loaded with these too.. surprised it was still hungry.
  15. yeah they were there Thursday! Fished the same stretch Friday and nada. Water was more stained friday. Tough day out there.
  16. Are these still available? I am interested. What is the condition? -Dan-
  17. Run a mix and see what fish want. I almost always have a uv spoon in water. either FLT stuff or stinger "UV". they catch in all conditions for me.
  18. Great job Guys and thanks for posting! I have been sidelined literally for the past 3 weekends watching my boys play travel lax and baseball. hoping to get out this week if the weather cooperates. Post to follow! -Dan-
  19. i have an 898 h bird( i think thats the model) and have had similar issues but inconsistent. i have had the unit for around 5 years. try manually setting the bottom depth rather than having on autodepth. That seemed to help the most. aside from that fiddle w sensitivity settings. does it happen more when there are waves hitting the transom? thats when mine gets screwy.
