  1. Sorry man, they did seem picky. We had a double header at about 10 otherwise not much action!
  2. We ended up going 1/4, couple line breaks. It’s beautiful out there, good luck!!!
  3. 24-30’ right now, 15’ down LB.
  4. Lake has 1’ chop to it. Reading 66* on surface, we are 0/1. All boats at mouth of the river. Minimal marks
  5. I’m going out Saturday morning LB I can report what I see.

    AR-15 (.223) ammo for deer?

    Old thread, but i don't think anyone has mentioned that not only is shot placement critical without much room for error, but also that .223 bullet is much more susceptable to being a flier off a twig or piece of grass as compared to a larger .30 cal bullet. I probably would not hunt with a .223 given the reliable, cheap .30 cals on the market. Best of luck to you; I do hope for your sanity and the deers' sake you don't miss..
  7. What is your process for catching/releasing staging kings? Reason I ask is because most times once the king reaches the boat it is almost dead. I'm talking about the mature kings specifically.
  8. LB- Last friday we caught our 22" brown in 80 FOW 45' down. No idea what he was doing there. Off a rigger with FF, green setup. I know things change rapidly but if that's any information that is useful to you or anyone else, go for it. Accidentally caught him when fishing for kings. I am a little less traditional with my six rod setup- my planer board rods are actually set up for shallow kings, i use a size 2 tadpole with FF or Flasher spoon combo. I can usually get them down 25-30', so i figure it would be good for rainbow or browns. I haven't caught anything on them since July though. I feel wrong not having 6 rods out lol Next year they will be copper setups i think. Good luck!
  9. I was surprised we caught a couple chrome Kings, but a couple in full dark staging color. Why is that? Does it mean the chrome fish are freshly in shallow?
  10. Limited out today with 4 kings, a brown and a coho. Most down 60’, FF on riggers and dipseys. Seemed like everyone was catching fish!

    New to Forum- need some advise for downriggers

    Thanks! We are doing better than average for sure. So you know, on that track you can see my two rod pods. The one closest to the boat is a planer board rod (which i use a tadpole diver in conjunction with, getting me down ~30', the middle pod holds a dipsey rod on setting 2, then my riggers. I've not had any tangle problems. Good luck to you.

    New to Forum- need some advise for downriggers

    My boat is very similar to yours and last year i had my riggers of the back, straight out. I hated it because it crowded the back of the boat when netting a fish. This year i moved them toward the front about 2', and have them angled at a 45 from directly back. Here is my setup. You can see the old marine plywood where they used to be. Now they are on a track. Good luck!

    Beautiful boat Walt, like many have said, thank you for your service. Your boat is about perfect size and i can see why you'd buy that brand new. Good luck to you!
