Boards work great if you use the right equipment to get them down to the right depth. Lead core torpedo divers and clip on weights will all get you to the right depth. I can get down to 90 ft on my torpedo divers and the boards help me cover more water. Lead core is easier to use but I dont have the money or the room for all those different rods on my boat. Only downside is you have to real the diver in with the fish and unclip it a little taxing when you are solo.

We use boards, divers, and riggers. But with the fish spread out the way they have been, I can't say that one has worked better than the others. It's been pretty hit or miss on everything. Baits too. All I can say is boards don't not work :)

Aequitas1916 did you use only boards or have you caught fish on riggers too. I have been seeing people using boards so I used 2 and caught nothing on them.

With the west wind blow and time of the year you never know, cant catch fish on your keister in the home.

Is it worthwhile to drive and only fish the harbor? Don't have a boat. Looking to go tomorrow morning, but don't want to make the drive if everything is in 200+ feet due to temp. 

Thanks,

Paul

Does anyone know the surface temp, thinking about chasing out to 250ft. Has anyone been using boards? Targeting rainbows and kings.

What Boatcop might not be taking into account is that if we get a strong west wind as we are today and also projected for most of tomorrow, there is a chance that some cool water may work it's way back in closer to shore by Saturday PM.  It's always hard to say and given that it's just a 2 day blow, it may not materialize, but watch the surface temp map online and if it's a clear day, you'll be able use the info to plan your trip.  

I've also had days where the water is piss warm and caught fish in it, while on days when the water is ideal, been skunked...it's fishing. LOL.

Good luck and sharpen those hooks...the 30#er is out there waiting.
