First light, perfect lake . 

 

Started out west in 150 and worked to 220 . 

 

180 seemed the best 80 to 101 down 

 

Ran 4 rod set this morning , 2  flashers on 2 riggers and 1 flasher , 1 spoon on the dipsey . 

 

The Gary D rig was rocking this morning so I switched to all flashers pretty quick .

White 11" Hotspots and a 8" white pro troll were best .slowed down around 9 so I put a few spoons down and took 2 shots on a watermelon Mag . . 

 

Had 2 doubles and one quad which was interesting  . One at a time please . 

 

Had about 20 on and landed 12 . 

2 steelhead , one Laker , the rest Salmon 

 

Boated 5 matures and lost maybe 3 more .

Nice! I'm thinking of making the run to Sandy Monday morning. The wind looks calm and from the south at first light so hopefully itll be calm for a small boat

Last day of a beautiful 4 of July weekend 

 

First light west again . 

 

Set up in 120 and worked to 160. So 

 

Wire dipsey fires , screams , by the time I get to it , rod goes limp and I knew I lost my dipsey , new flasher that was working snubber etc . 

 

A little later braid dipsy goes , I'm fighting the fish  lose it and my mag glow NK that I love is cut off . 

 

100 rigger fires with 11" white Hot Spot/ Gary D rig  , Binwadin  color , 20# king . He didn't fight much till he got in the boat and went crazy and broke my pliers . 

 

Two more hits on flasher Gary D rig and got bit off on one , the other I tied a bad knot . Two bait heads gone . 

 

Since the beginning of the year I am going back have not lost anything or even had a tangle . So I guess I was,due . 

 

We wound up with 6  steelhead and salmon boated out of like 15 hits .

Yes I had to take a pic of my prize catch today after the swivel base broke in half. I was really struggled to get it in! It was touch and go for a while but I pulled her up and I was a great relief when she hit the deck.IMG_20200705_093543726_HDR.jpeg

For a minute there I thought maybe that’s a Gary D rig.

Above tells you why Cannon riggers are not a high quality product . 

 

No way should the swivel base  should ever break . It should  be engineered to be stronger than it needs  to be . 

When they offer an upgrade kit says something . 

 

 

 

 

Tells me they are cutting corners .

The base that broke is a pedestal mount 1904032. It was the shoulder bolt in n the center of the mount plate. I searched the internet up and down and couldn't find the part on line. Today I will call cannon and hopefully they can help with some kind of upgrade for it .
