  1. Mine is Lowrance HDS gen 3 out in that deep water say 200ft plus do you guys mark fish well on your graphs or simply just fish the temperature. I couldn’t mark them that well.
  2. Fished out of Oak again today. 5 kings and 6 steelhead. Had 6 other nice hits we missed. Spoons were the ticket. 500+fow of water was best for us (31N line) 70 down on riggers, 300 copper w/3oz snap weight and dipsy 200 back on 2 setting
  3. Lowrance HDS It is +4 From the default fished this morning, 2 nice Kings and 1 nice steelhead. Caught 8 other small kings and Steelheads. Most fish came on dipsy FF or spoon. Setting 2- 275-280 back. 2.5-2.8 sog 200-400fow
  4. Any oak reports from today? Newbie here and just trying to catch some fish and have fun. thanks!
  5. That’s what I have been doing lol. Just torn! I liked fishing Mexico last year this time of year but the lake got nasty with The NW winds. This will be my 2nd trip ever to lake O so I’m a bit of newbie.
  6. Coming up next week for a few days if the lake allows. I am between Oak Orchard or Mexico. What would be your choice? Thanks in advance.
  7. This will be 2nd trip up ever. Last year was labor day weekend in Pulaski and now that I am addicted I want to do another trip. Looking at the week of August 8th. What would be your recommendation for a port? Thanks in advance. Eric
  8. First ever trip this week planned to fish Wed-Saturday. Fished Wednesday in the rain and went 8 for 12. Thursday we got out for maybe an hour in the AM and went 2 for 3 before getting blown off the lake. Friday we couldn’t get out due to the blow. Stuck around until this morning, got down to the launch at 5:30am and she was still angry. Packed up and headed back to Ohio. Thanks to everyone on here that helped me prepare for this trip. It was blast and I am hooked! Most of our success was 70fow 2.3sog riggers down 55. Fly/flasher
  9. Sounds like a great honeymoon! We will fish the 28th and 29th. I will definitely get a hold of you when the time gets closer! Thank you for the info and help! Eric
  10. What size dipsy's do you run? #1 or mags? Do mark big schools or just small pods of fish typically? Thank you and FF34 for this info. Very much appreciated. Eric
  11. I fish Erie mostly and when the marks are not there I am not catching fish so I really trust my electronics and fish the marks.
  12. So even if the marks are not there doesn't mean the fish are not there correct? Do you not see them on a graph when mixed in at the thermocline?
  13. Thank you! This will be our first Salmon trip. I have a fish hawk on the boat and a Lowrance HDS unit. I read where everyone targets a certain water temp and thermocline. Do you not mark this fish on the graph and then target that depth?
  14. Coming up near the end of August and staying in Pulaski for a few days. Where is the best spot to launch with a 21ft deep V boat? Willing to travel and pay for a nice launch. Never been to the area. Thanks! Eric
  15. I think i am going to run 2 riggers w/ 30# mono, 2 dipsys w/ 30# wire, and 2 boards with copper. What is recommended for wire on boards? Thanks!
  16. Thanks for the Info. Really appreciate it! really looking forward to this trip.
  17. Thank you for the info! I would like to keep the 30# braid for the dipsys since that is what ill be running on Erie during the Summer. I am thinking ill run a rigger and 2 dipsys on each side of the boat. I think i will upgrade my aux battery to a 31 and call it good. Can always fire up the big motor to keep things running if the kicker cant keep up.
  18. Thank you! I am expecting this to be more than a 1 time deal. Think I will go with the Cannon Magnum 10 STX's Eric
  19. First timer heading up to Pulaski NY next Summer around Labor day. Can anyone give any tips? I troll Erie for Walleye with dipsys and boards often. I do not currently have downriggers but they can be added. Can I get away with running just 6 mag dipsys or will the downriggers be a must have? If riggers are required, electric or will manual do? If elecrtic, do you run them off a dedicated battery or do the not drain the battery to bad? Baits.... Spoons, flys, stick baits, etc...?? For line I was going to run 30# power pro braid with 400ft before I hit backing (is that enough?). Looking for any advice that is willing to be given. My current set up is a 2075 Tyee, 250 for the main and 15hp kicker. Troll master, Ulterra 112 w/ ipilot, cisco tube rod holders, Lowrance hds's, Thanks in advance. Eric
