  1. Happy memorial day weekend!! Fished from 6am till 10:45am. We covered a ton of water today as we really didn't have great screens at any depth. Started out in 150 to 250fow and got one small king on a carbon 14 spoon. So we decided to pick up and head out to deeper water. We set back down in 400 fow and fished out to 450 fow. We found good temp at 50-60 feet down no matter where we fished. Got a decent 10lb king on a raspberry carbon 14 on a 10 color. Ended up 5 for 7. Mostly small fish from a spoon bite today. Only 2 bites on flasher flies today. Had a good time fishing with buddies. How did everyone else do?

  2. So it wasn't just me. We started out in 80 fow and dropped the fish hawk every 25 to 50 feet out till we got to 450fow. I was convinced my fish hawk was malfunctioning. I even changed my batteries. We only got one small king all day. Our best screen was in 140 fow but the fish would not bite. I threw everything I had in the boat at them. We fished west out to the green bouy and straight out from there. It got too rough once we hit 450 fow to go out any deeper than that.

  3. Just bought a new one so I will be ready for to try my luck in the Sandy Creek Shootout this coming weekend. Going forward I'm going to take the cap off and batteries out after each use to try and prevent any more issues with the probes. Hopefully fish hawk will stand by their product and do something as I bought the one that broke in August of last year. We shall see.

  4. It was going to be one of those days as my fish hawk probe went into error mode first time in the water this morning. The down temperature showed 03.1 which acccording to their website it means the temperature probe is bad. It will still read down speed. So we decided to stick it out and fish somewhat blind. We started out in 150fow and worked our way out to deep water. We got our first strike on a meat rig on the diver rod out 220. We ended up losing that fish. The next fish didn't come for about 90 mins when we were in about 300 fow. We ran a white glow crush spin doctor with matching flie down 100feet and got a nice steel head. We then ran out to 400 fow just looking around and seeing blank screens we moved back to 250 fow. The next fish was a decent mature king on the same spin doctor set up. No clue where the scale on the boat went but guessing it was 20lbs. Ended the day 2 for 3. Beautiful weather but a slow day out there. How did everyone else do out there today?

  5. It was great to get out with my childhood buddies today. I just wish the fish would have cooperated for us. We started in 140 and ran out to 250 fow. We ended up with 2 skip Kings and one small laker. Definitely got my first fishing dose of humble pie. Just when I thought I had a fishing program figured out the lake showed me different. I stayed away from the pack today and fished east of the green bouy. There was definitely more chop on the lake than the report said for this morning. How did everyone else do???23646(1).thumb.jpeg.820bc3c84befc8661db1db9435155523.jpeg

  6. Went out for a few hours this morning from 6am till 10:30am. Fished 160 - 320 fow. We had a slower day today as we finished 4 for 8. All fish were caught in 180-210 fow at 55 to 75 down. Ended up with 3 steelhead and one 8-10lb king. Lost a really big king about 40 feet away from the boat on the surface as the spoon popped.IMG_20230704_100611588_HDR.thumb.jpg.7b6ce22a8097787f365c9857dadfa847.jpg Kinda bummed out about it but that's fishing. Happy 4th everyone!!!!

  7. Wanted to take a few friends out today who have never fished the big lake before. We lost a big king on a mag green glow alwive spoon at the boat as the hook broke. Never had a hook break before but I guess there's always a first. Fished 6:30am till the rain started at 10:45am. We got 2 decent steelhead, 4 kings, and one decent laker while we were pulling in lines. Finished 7 for 12 for the day. I've had good luck with the same three spoons each time out so far this season. Our best water today was between 210-250 fow at 60-85 down.

  8. Fished 80-165fow with most of the fish caught in 120-150 fow.All fish were caught from 6am to 8:30am this morning. Finished 6 of 7 with all fish being Salmon. Biggest was 16 or 17 lbs. 4 spoon bites between 60-100 down. 2 flasher flies bites out 190-210 on 3 diver setting. Pulled the boat out of the water at 11am. Good temp was 95 down today. Rigger bites were green glow alwive on the deep spoon with mixed veggies and orange crush on the sliders. 8" Hulk 14 and Green jeans spin doctors with matching flies took the diver bites. The east/ northeast troll produced all the fish today. Anybody fish out deep today? How did you guys do?
