Just when you think you’ve got this whole salmon fishing thing down. 

 

Ive been fortunate to catch 2-3 everytime I’ve gone out since mid June. Not tonight.

 

We trolled from 90’ to 160’. 130’ was the depth we found to be productive. Went 0/7 with 3 break offs (!) and 4 weak hook sets. I’m running 30lb big game and 20lb seagar flouro. Been doing this for a few years and I’ve never seen anything like what happened to us last night. 

 

As funny as it is, it’s still sad that there’s some fish out there with my flasher fly setups and a meat rig set. 3 of the fishes surfaced and looked to be around 15-20lb. 

 

Flasher fly anything green “took” them. Lol. Also white flasher white meat rig has always been my hot producer took one almost immediately and is somewhere in Lake Ontario currently... speed 2.70. I don’t have a fish hawk so idk about at the ball. Hooked fish with a mag dipsey, tadpole/planer 120’ set, rest were riggers. 110’ and 60’ sets. 

 

good of luck to you guys! It was nice talking to the solo runner we met at the launch last night at 10!

For what its worth i run 30# seguar fluoro leaders for anything pulling a flasher. 20# for spoons. I figure out he 30# is more or less insurance since those rigs have a bit more drag in the water and the fish really shouldn't care since theres so much going on there anyway.

Where do you get 30# flouro? I’ve looked everywhere. I live in Mexico. 
I just bought a spool of it a couple weeks ago from either fat Nancy's or all season sports If not there I would think gander outdoors down in Cicero. If I were you I would just run your main line straight to the flasher I run leaders mostly because I'm running flea flicker 30 lb for main line and it's almost a white color

I thought about doing that. When I went to fat nancys (feels like I’m there twice each week) they only had 20#. If they had 600# flouro I woulda bought that

Like Fat Trout said I run my 30# Big Game straight to my flasher on the riggers. With a diver I just use a piece of the leftover 30# Big Game for the diver to flasher leader. Never had a break-off except when I've spun the dipsy and gotten cut off on the wire.
