  1. How deep were you? And how far down on the riggers? Awesome job!
  2. First trip out for the year. Started a new job and have been working some insane hours. Shot out of the chute at 5:30am and set up shot in 150 fow with an awesome screen. Sent the fishhawk down and found that temp got pushed down. It was 51 down 108 in 150fow. Trolled north out to 250 with a nice screen but no takers. Lake started to get a little chop going out deep so I picked up shop and headed in to 180fow. Set 4 riggers down to 77, 87, 97, and 107. Took a shot on the 77 rigger instantly. Had on a UV Nbk spoon. About 15 minutes later at 8:15 am I hooked up to a 24lb king in 178fow. Down 108 feet. Didn’t know it was hooked until it saw the boat. Fish darted under the boat and got wrapped in 2 rigger wires. I don’t know how we boated that fish but we did. Trolled around until 11am and then headed in. Good thing we did because around 1145 one of the nastiest thunder storms I have ever seen rolled through. Over all I had a pretty screen all day but not many takers. The king I caught has around 10 baitfish in his stomach that were all 5-8 inches.
  3. Brighter colors but really anything with just a little color. It doesn’t have to be neon or anything... My bread and butter spoon is a black wiggle. You can catch anything that swims on that spoon. Meat may work but I wouldn’t bother if your goal is to catch steelhead. Speed somewhat matters. Anywhere from 2.4-3.0 for me. Temp doesn’t matter much as they stay in the upper 30% of the water column. Fish deeper water for them. 200fow or more. Fish anywhere from 30 to 75 down for steelhead.
  4. I can give you the exact spoons. Standard size black wiggle stinger and standard size blue dolphin. Speed on top was 2.6 below was 2.4.
  5. All was quiet on the radio with everyone gearing up for the Pro Am this weekend. I’m sure they were all bummed to find temp down well over 120. Decided to screw the Kings and just run some steelhead lines. From 200-250 fow down 45-85 you can smash steelhead all day long. We had hit after hit. Probably 15-20 hits within an hour. A lot of fun having a 30 inch steelhead jumping a few feet out of the water!
  6. Shakedown trip. First rigger down at 645. First strike at 710 54 down on a black wiggle standard size spoon. Next bite came 80 down on a flasher/fly combo at 745. Went 2 for 2 off the water by 8 because I had somewhere to be. Temp was down 55. Overall a fun on and off the water day.
  7. I’ll take them! I’ll send you a pm with my number

  12. Hey guys. I plan on ordering some spoons from fat nancy’s And was wondering what size everyone recommends for Kings and Browns? Is the stingray size too big for Browns? I was planning on going with all stingray sizes
  13. Hey guys. I am looking for a set of used Big Jon Otter Boat planer boards. Let me know if you have a set you would sell! Thank you!

    Can you split this? On a college student budget so cannot afford them all!
  18. Hey guys! I am a college student looking for my first salmon boat! I am looking at a 1993 penn yan 212 tournament. It has many things included: fish finders, fishhawk, rocket rod holders, planer mast and reels, 4 cannon mag 10’s autopilot, full enclosure, radio, etc... I was wondering what you guys think it would be worth? Transom and stringers replaced last year. He is asking 10,000. Does this seem fair? I was thinking it is a little high. I was thinking of offering 9000. Thanks guys!
  19. I’m pretty used to launching solo as my girlfriend stands on the dock and holds a rope... hahah she catches nicer fish than me though! (Pic is of a PA trout)
