  1. It was a beautiful night; nice fish and quality family time!
  2. Just when you think you’ve got this whole salmon fishing thing down. Ive been fortunate to catch 2-3 everytime I’ve gone out since mid June. Not tonight. We trolled from 90’ to 160’. 130’ was the depth we found to be productive. Went 0/7 with 3 break offs (!) and 4 weak hook sets. I’m running 30lb big game and 20lb seagar flouro. Been doing this for a few years and I’ve never seen anything like what happened to us last night. As funny as it is, it’s still sad that there’s some fish out there with my flasher fly setups and a meat rig set. 3 of the fishes surfaced and looked to be around 15-20lb. Flasher fly anything green “took” them. Lol. Also white flasher white meat rig has always been my hot producer took one almost immediately and is somewhere in Lake Ontario currently... speed 2.70. I don’t have a fish hawk so idk about at the ball. Hooked fish with a mag dipsey, tadpole/planer 120’ set, rest were riggers. 110’ and 60’ sets. good of luck to you guys! It was nice talking to the solo runner we met at the launch last night at 10!
  3. Lol . Funny story. I was fishing the reservoir and thought I saw a trump 2036 banner
  4. Brand new, stickers still on them. Never been on a rim. Selling because I bought the wrong size. $750 for the set.
  5. Mexico has been tough for me as well since the browns slid out. My stories are very similar to Del’s. Lots of bait pods though 60-130 feet, they’re sometimes stretching 40’ top to bottom. Good luck. If the lake lays down today or tomorrow I’ll be out there! They’ll move in at some point!!!
  6. Have you guys seen the new caddy shack fly? I bought a UV purple/silver flasher with it. Before that purchase, everything I run is green glow or UV. Aside from my white/silver flasher UV with a white meat rig. Which has consistently caught the biggest fish on my boat.
  7. I’m going out this afternoon; I’ll post what I find!
  8. The state workers told me they are being told to do whatever it takes to keep this launch open. Of course, it’s likely only a matter of time before it can’t be used. I launched and recovered my 19’ boat no issue. Bring knee high boots or crocks. My Tacoma was in 6” of water in the front.
  9. You should be fine Monday depending on what happens today and tomorrow. It’s definitely high but the floating dock is still available as of last night. 1000’ no wake though.
  10. Floating dock only at Mexico point guys.
  11. I’m going to check it tonight to see if they barricade it. State workers yesterday said they’re considering doing so this weekend.
  12. Did you have to move their barricade in order to recover your boat???
  13. I’m not sure it’s normal rainfall, average rainfall in may is 3.25”. Currently we are sitting at 4.15” and only halfway through the month.
  14. As of 3 pm today. Another few inches and it’ll be under water.
  15. So sorry to hear Charlie. Being one of the more younger posters here, your post reminds me of what my grandfather used to say all the time which is that time flies by and before you know it you're physically declining. I've been blessed with good health and I pray that you find the proper treatment, and that it is not serious, to get you back on track, or should I say, the lake!
  16. I'm more of a weekend warrior- scottys manual riggers have worked well for me. Someday i'll get the fancy electric ones. At least i get a good arm workout... In any event, i have a few things from Cannon and like their designs most times, so when i do upgrade, i will probably go Cannon. But i would also like to hear what some of the charter capts have to say as they use them far more than i do.
  17. Nice job hachimo! We went out last night in front of catfish creek and went zero for zero. The fish moved outta the area. Fished 10’ to 40’. Can’t win em all!
  18. Hm interesting. I personally don’t think there’s a population issue though. Most of the other reports here are of people being successful (perhaps some have too much pride to post when they don’t get any ). Plus I’m marking enough to make me think there’s plenty there. Totally open to others’ opinions though. I hope it’s not a population issue!
  19. All the browns i've cleaned are the same way. We caught a rainbow too that was about as anorexic as i have ever seen. The browns looked healthy though.
  20. Wow nice job! is that a weedless hook on the larger spoon? lol
  21. If you've had success in years past, I think it is right to assume you know what you are doing. I think the factors you can control (speed, lures, presentation) we can also assume you're using proper technique. How was the boat traffic? That could play a part. Also consider weather. I've noticed out of Mexico point we either do really well or really poorly. This year has been far more of the former than the latter for me. I know what it's like though, to see some reports of catching 30 in one day; whereas on that same day, I can barely land a single fish. Frustrating. I do not think there is a population problem in the Lake, if that is what is on your mind, and i think most would agree.
  22. This is how I feel too, except with lakers. I must have lake trout repellant on my lures. Can’t seem to catch one and never have out of Lake O.
  23. I’ve had excellent luck in Mexico bay. I think a huge key is boat traffic. Obviously, water color/temp, trolling speed, lure choice all play a role too. Let the forum know what you’re using for bait, presentation, days you go and your trolling speed and we can try to help you out!
  24. Thanks! Launch looks great as of last week. You shouldn’t have any issues. I saw guys with anywhere from driftboats to 26’+ charter boats. They put the docks in two weeks ago. Although it is is pouring here now (I live 5 miles from Mexico point).
  25. Hm. When i got stopped in PG by an ENCON officer, we just had our six fish (1 brown, 5 salmon) laying in the boat at the front in a pile lol he didn't give me grief, only that the fish belonged in a cooler, not out in the sun. I think the law is that if you fish with three guys, limit out with 9 fish, then drop the other two guys off and are caught with 9 fish aboard with only the one licensed person on the boat, you're illegal. It's a good lesson but doesn't apply to me as I am with the guys i fish with from the time i leave my house to the time i come back home.
