YES!!!! Thats awesome.  Weather lookin good this weekend so far, I will be up friday night. 

Thank you. I don’t know where the wave forecasters get their info, but there’s been 2-3’ waves all night. I’m waiting for it to settle down

I was doing a test with magnum dipsy divers and hit bottom 100 ft down with 266 ft of wire. Just in case you had some

I haven’t used mags in a while. They’re very much so overkill to me. I use the regular ones with my wire rods

One more thing- when filleting that salmon, his fillets looked like a mid September fillet. Very deteriorated I thought. To note, he did have a large lamprey on him. What would cause this? Here’s my list of possibilities:

 

1.) he’s been in very shallow and warm water

2.) it’s the way they are this time of year

3.) he’s old as hell

4.) he prematurely wanted to spawn

I don't think you can get a standard #1 dipsey down 100 feet, can you? I sent a fish hawk TD down on my wire line and could not get 100 foot depth.

I have hit 70 with 250 out in my wire rod. Actually got hung up. I do not know how much further I could go. Surface speed was 2.7, but I don’t know the down speed. If it was under 2 down there, I think it could. 

 

Ive never heard of someone hooking a FH to their dipsey, that’s creative.

 

for my spread, the mags are overkill but I see the appeal. My riggers are the deep runners, my dispseys are usually for 65 and 55. So for me particularly, I don’t need anything more.

I have hit bottom in 100 with standard size dipsy. I think 350 ft of wire set at 1 1/2  might do it. Smaller the lure and slower speed, deeper they go. Spoons would have less effect on the diver than a large attractor. Good luck
