  1. Saw you out there- nice boat! I was the older black Starcraft with a red stripe, 90 merc. We went 0/2 lol beautiful browns! See you around
  2. Sorry man, they did seem picky. We had a double header at about 10 otherwise not much action!
  3. We ended up going 1/4, couple line breaks. It’s beautiful out there, good luck!!!
  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. 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.
  6. 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!
  7. 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?
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  11. Welcome Fishon, i'm around the river all the time if you need any news! Good luck!
  12. 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!
  13. Welcome- you've caught some beauties! Good luck to you. Decoy - your boat name is absurd lol Both boats are beautiful!
  14. Opal- welcome! Your boat is very nice! However, i do have you beat in the Year department- mine is a 1969 lol the nymph and the Offshore were not that different. Good luck to you.
  15. some more pics of my boat and I, plus my buddy below.
  16. Ah, ok. So by law you don’t have to have one of your vessel is under 20m, but if you do have a radio, you need to be monitoring 16 when not communicating?
  17. I want to make sure something is clarified before someone reads this improperly. Marine radios are not required by law. No channels need to be monitored. Not saying they aren’t needed or shouldn’t be on everyone’s rig, but, to my knowledge, they aren’t law. Not in the US anyways. Please correct me if I’m mistaken.
  18. Nice! You had a good day. I’m heading out there Friday morning to see what’s going on.
  19. Well if you head toward the river, look for a black Starcraft with a red stripe!
  20. Are you fishing Friday or no? I’m heading out of pine grove Friday morning and can report my findings. Wind looks like it’ll be NNE until 1pm Friday. But that will likely change as we get closer. From what ive seen at least near PG and the river mouth, 100-130 FoW, down 35 and 90. I’ve been getting hits on meat rigs and FF. No spoon hits for me. I haven’t used J plugs yet.
  21. Went 1-5 launched from pine grove around 6:30 headed towards the plant until we found 80’ of water. All hits came in 100’, down 45’, and 90’ dipsey, except the one we got which was a dipsey set down 100’ in 130’. Caught on an atomic meat rig. Fish is 32” but my gfs first fish so I’m happy about that. it was busy out there today guys, and while we were landing the fish, my other dipsey caught a fellow fisherman’s dipsey. I have no idea how someone got that close to me. I use the large dipseys that go almost straight down, 2 setting at around 100’ deep. I hope the gentleman is on this forum so I can apologize to him for wasting his time. He unhooked my dipsey from his from afar and didn’t take any of my setup, which I was concerned about. Waste of probably 15 mins. I know im not an expert but please keep your distance when someone clearly has a fish on. I was probably one of the slower trollers out today hovering at 2.0 mph. I’m not in the LoC tourney and go just for fun but please be aware.
  22. Nice job, those fish are great! I was out in my 18’ offshore today and it was about a rough as I’ll fish. We got off around 9:30. Safe fishing!
