  1. Hi, I have some I could let go. Any colors you are looking for? None have been run but I have too many. I would be shipping as I am in Colorado. Thanks.
  2. Obviously not scientific but looking at old photos of larger kings we caught , many were pretty far into to color change in mid July. I also noticed this on larger kings from Lake Michigan we got back in the day as well.
  3. There is something a large king brings that prompted a guy I know to proclaim it is better than fun loving. Mid teen fish don’t do that. Fishing is fun, catching a mature king is different. I think it is probably cyclical and good days are ahead. For the next few years I am taking the shorter drive to WI. We have teenage fish pretty close in Lake Oahe to Colorado. I have the greatest memories of Lake O when a rod released you had no idea how big the fish might be. Now you probably know how big it is at the end of a 400 copper.
  4. We didn’t work hard back in the day. We drove out to fish 5 days every July from Chicago in the 90’s. 4 downriggers with 12lb mono for spoons, 17lb for dodger /fly and limits of big kings and steelhead. today there is wire, copper, fleas…..different game.
  5. It was great in the 90’s. Trying to find the pic of a 42lb we got. Did find this one I think smallest is 28 if I recall.
  6. Could be 5 or 6 years as well.
  7. Quite a few over 30lb showing up in WI side very early in the season. Should be interesting to see later this summer.

  9. Is the line counter location less impactful on the size 20’s vs larger sizes?
  10. I don’t fish the MI side, not saying who has better fishing, pointing out that over the past few seasons they appear to be getting bigger while I read here how you all feel yours are getting smaller. It seems you can reverse the trends. The WI plan seems to be working with Browns and salmon so far.
  11. The size of fish and quantities seem to be trending back to the haydays. The K/D tournament gives a good history of sizes. Obviously Lake Ontario is an amazing fishery, was just referencing the discussion of salmon size.
  12. It might return, Lake Michigan is staring to get back to the glory day sizes and set the Great Lakes record for Chinook a couple years ago.
  13. Thanks, are the older ones more durable than the current model?
  14. I have the current line counters and have a chance to pick up a couple older ones to use for wire. Is the position of the line counter that big of an issue? I love mu silver non counters. I use the more current version for braid divers. Appreciate it.
  15. My downriggers came with dubro release, just a beefier blacks, so going to roll with those and use rubber bands when using my lighter spoon rods,
  16. Curious if you are able to really load them up, as well as with blacks?
  17. When you look at Lake Michigan you are seeing the opposite, a drastic increase in overall size and larger big than we have seen in quite some time.
  18. With a track system on modern boats, is using an individual downrigger mount like crestliner sure mount stronger then using the a track mounted on a few mounts with the downrigger and other items. Was curious if using a track strengths the connections.
  19. Can you load the rods tight using rubber bands in blacks?
  20. I use Okuma big lake tournament ML and L on inland lakes here in CO, they work well and the lighter sizes are priced right.
  21. I have a couple new in box but do not have line counters, just standard.
  22. Thanks, they seemreally nice. This is what the reel cal said, it sounds like I can get away with less backing,
  23. For those of you using these for, what type/amount of backing with 30lb wire? I have blood run wire if that helps. Thanks. They have a bit larger capacity than saltist 30it seems.
