Started off the morning in tight for browns. After two hours without movin a rod packed it in and ran out to 160FOW for lakers.  5 lakers in the last 40min. All over 10lb. Great class of fish.  4 came on froggy size5/0 cowbells and bullfrog mag Gambler rig.  Gonna give it another 30min and turn up speed to 2.3 and throw out some spoons and FF’s.  Lot of fish suspended in the 80-90ft area.

Fished untill 11;00.  Took 6 lakers. 2 of them came on yellow dew mag deathtrap pullin a mag bullfrog gambler rig.  First time running a deathtrap.  Much less drag then cowbells and there’s definitely a place for them in my laker arsenal.  I quit targeting lakers after the 6th fish cane in.  I’m  Itchin to hear a screamin drag so I packed in the laker gear and set a 6 rod spread with spoons and FF’s and bumped the speed up to try and target the fish I’ve seen in the 80ft area.  Trolled an hour without a bump and called it quits. Got somemore west winds in the forcast. Maybe next weekend I can get my first brown of the season.

Did you use your bottom tracking on your new downriggers for the Lakers

I have. And it worked great. I have a 15lb ball on it so there isn’t much blow back. Also used the jiggen mode and set it for 3ft jigs in 5min intervals. That little action on the ball has been giving me good results. I love the optimum. Definitely made a mistake returning the other two to replace my mag 10HS’s

Take that money and buy the Raymarine 3D it's almost not fair
