I've been targeting kings between 45-48 degrees successfully so far this year. However, I see people posting amazing pics of steelhead and some Browns.

Where are you targeting these fish? If I'm in 90-110 feet of water and am targeting kings at 60 feet bc of the right temp do I just run a top line for steelhead?

 

Looking for any direction. Thanks in advance. Heading out today

We have been successful without targeting them. We always have a meat rig in 42 deg then stagger from there up and run free sliders on each spoon rigger. Seem to pop Steelies with the sliders often. Also we run a chute leadcore usually 5-7 and that works well too w bright colors.

What temp are you targeting for kings?  Steelhead like it warmer, so will almost always be above the kings.  Around 52F.

That normally puts them 20 to 30' above the target temp for kings (42F to 48F), but it does depend on the thermocline profile.

Just measure where you see 52F as you lower the probe down.

Fish the marks don’t get hung up on Temp. A rigger parked between 20-40ft accounts for a lot of our steelhead. A lot of those high marks you see on your graph are steelhead. 7 LC will take many also.

    • Yet another question about sonar

      Way back when I was in the Navy I was stationed in SC. There I had a boat and fished my butt off. When I would troll at depths of about 150ft and 10 knots SOW I could still see my ball on my sonar. Today, I have a 17ft aluminum with lowrance hook2 splitshot.  I can not see my ball on the sonar down 50 feet trolling 2.5 mph SOG.  I checked my transducer alignment, sensitivity settings....what am I missing?

    • broadhead question

      Hi all, I began bowhunting about 10 years ago and practiced with field points and hunted with grim reapers. I killed and retrieved about 15 deer with grim reapers but I also had several hit the shoulder bone and not penetrate. So 2 years ago I decided to switch to Muzzys. I would be completely dialed in with my field points but with the Muzzys i couldn't make a "kill shot" on my targets. People on this forum said i needed my bow tuned. So i took it to Traditions and he said he tuned it perf

    • Dreamweaver deeper diver question

      I'm having a small issue with Dreamweaver deeper divers. It seems as though I've had two tangles on my last two trips out. I have never had this problem with luhr Jensen. And I have been fishing divers for years so I know to let them out slow. I can hear the weight shaking around inside both of my divers. I'm not sure if that is the problem on why things are twisting or if that is normal or not. Has anybody else had issues with the dream Weavers or is it normal for the weight to move around. I f
