  1. Started out at 7am ran out to 300’ put two 250’copper in and as we were putting in the third line we pop a 10lb steelie. Finish our set on a north troll out to 450 and never move a rod until 815 get a rip on a dipsey out 225’ and get unbuttoned quick on a throbber. Head back in to 275 and pop another steelie. As we get that one in we get three more 10-17lb kings. Turned around at 115’ to reset lines and the lake went from 1-2’ to 3-6’ with the occasional bigger thrown in and we decided we had had enough by 1030. Got one hit on everything we had out and none took two hits. Be alert when leaving the harbor. They are putting in a new break wall perpendicular to the piers it’s marked by buoys but it might be tough to see in low light.
  2. Not meant as a minimization of the women who were affected
  3. Whatever side of the isle you’re on these are funny as hell
  4. So that’s where all the fish went. Nice job. Olcott didn’t treat us well today. Very few fish at the cleaning station.
  5. Thanks. It’s nice to get the old man on a few fish. We started fishing the lake out of Wilson back in ‘83. At 75 he still can put it to ‘em, although that big one whooped him a bit. But he was back on it when his turn came back around.
  6. Headed straight out again today. Stopped at 350’ on the first bait ball we ran over down 50’-65’ started to set lines and got four in when a 300’ copper hits. After that stayed in the 350-425’ range and had a steady pic from 730-2pm. Boated 14 dropped another 7. Mix of steelies, coho and kings one topped out at 27lbs. Mix of spoons, all the usual suspects taking hits. Another great day on the water. From the cleaning station it looked like quite a few had a similar day. Lots of nice fish seen on the hooks at the sign. Dad got the big one. The other two jokers in the pic are friends.
  7. I wish. Have to go back to the real world on Monday. Might have a company “picknik” Wednesday. If the boys want to work late for the rest of the week.
  8. Very few. Bite died at 1030 for us. Beautiful day on the lake.
  9. Picked up a 6lb coho at 400’. So far monkey puke, wonderbread, carbon 14 have taken the four hits
  10. Put three in the boat so far. Added another small steelie that I unbuttoned at the side of the boat. Finally got all 8 lines in and heading back from 450’ to the 250’ start point.
  11. Straight out started 250’ got four lines in and 250 and 300 copper with Spoons both fire first in nice 12lb king second is still refusing to come in.
  12. where is your GPS receiver unit mounted on the vessel. I have a the same garmin unit on my 26’cc. It has a hydraulic steer out board but I’ve had zero issue with the system holding course in 8’+waves and 25+mph winds. When I called Garmin they warned me about mounting the GPS receiver too far forward.( I was going to mount it almost in the bow under the anchor locker) when I did have it installed at MidRiver marina Jeff Bogner actually mounted it in the center console. I’ve had it hold course at 2mph with bags and 45mph in open seas.
  13. I would expect the heat and steam to loosen every stick on item and maybe even warp the plastic flasher. Good luck, I hope it’s a successful experiment.
  14. You will most likely be dragging bottom on the straight away run and you will have inside lines laying on the bottom on even the widest turn.
  15. A set of bags will help a tremendous amount. They will allow for higher rpm and therefore thrust allowing greater control. They also help with stabilizing speed in a downwind/tailing wave troll. Get bags on the larger size for your boat. The added rpm won’t cause a significant increase in fuel consumption but will have the added benefit of allowing your engine to stay cleaner. Tie the bags as close to 1/3 back from the bow if possible with the tails even with the transom. most importantly if you do get bags tie another line on the tail and to your back cleat. When retrieving just lift on the tail line and they come right in.
  16. My advice would be use the heaviest weight your riggers will support. as far as blow back there is no set calculations to account for the angle. If you can’t see your weight on your graph you will need a probe at the weight to get an accurate reading. A fishhawk td is $125 and a cheap way to get accurate depth and temp readings. You can also send it down a dipsey line or copper to get readings on those lines as well.
  17. Sorry this is a day over due but hope it helps someone. Left the harbor at 715am and headed out to 400’ lines in and continued to 550’. With a slight lean to the East we trolled north to south from 350-550 and went 16/22. Monkey puke, carbon 14, black and raspberry, and blue dolphin took most. Only one hit on a FF and nothing on spin doctor. 200&300 copper dipsey on 1 out 175 and 200 and riggers down 65-90 all had activity with the above spoons. Nice mix of matures, juvies and steelies. brought home 8 kings and 3 steelies for the table.
  18. Nice. Glad someone made it out. Haven’t been on the water in over a week myself.
  19. I run snubbers on my dipseys. When we have lost fish after short battles they are spread throughout our setup. Riggers coppers and dipseys. The only thing I can figure is the fish are coming in from the side and get the spoon horizontally in their mouth with the hook on the outside. When they turn away if they go to the hook side it sticks them good, if they turn to the line side the spoon is pulled across and out of their jaw and the hooks never stick well. When we are getting repeated 45 second releases any fish we do land are usually stuck in the outside of the jaw. That’s my theory anyways and I’m sticking to it. the launch fee at olcott is good for the day for the vessel listed on the ticket.
  20. finished the day 8/10. We had 8 in the boat by noon and then had two come unbuttoned within 45 seconds of the hit between noon and 1230 and then never moved a rod and called it at 2. East breeze started to ripple the water at 1130 up until then it was almost slick calm
