Headed out again tomorrow. I want to stop at Fleet Farm on the way an pick up some more spoons, flies, and dodgers. Can anyone give advice of what ones I should get? I have had luck with Wonder Bread but hoping to get a few more hot colors.

I'm running now 30 Big Jon electric downriggers on my six charter boats and having no issues with them. Our experience with having a few arms break in the past is to move the pulley (as pictured) farther away from the motor as this will create less downward torque on the arm. Give that a try.

We did get all my boats on the lake this morning and did manage to land some fish, but with increasing winds and a driving rain we came back to the docks early today. Our first rough day of the month so all in all we can't complain. Hopefully we get all of our customers out this afternoon as winds are suppose to swing to the west. Good luck fishing.

This has been one of the best weeks of weather and fishing we had all year. The lake water has warmed up in a hurry producing some fast paced fishing action at certain times of the day. Thanks to all that participated in this weekends annual Coho Derby and all the volunteers to make this great event possible. I've been fishing every day in 60 to 100 feet of water and and catching all age classes of kings as well as come rainbow trout. On Saturday we caught everything but a brown trout. I've noticed no consistent pattern but continue to catch fish with rattlesnake spoons on planner boards. Small spoons on the diver rods and a variety of dodger/flies on downriggers and wire divers also worked well.

Eyeslayer,

Nice catch and report.

I've broken at least 8 arms over the yrs. I carry a spare if that tells you anything. It has only happened on my Capt Paks and not on my Brute's.

I don't think there is anything one can do to prevent this. The only ones that break are at the threads where it enters the small block. Only prevention I do is to put on that grey grease one uses for electrical contacts on the threads of all your rigger rods that go into the base. That makes it much easier to get the stub out next time and likely there will be a next time. I have the broken end re-threaded and common thread that can be done at some hardware stores.

Good luck,

Grey Beard

We fished with friends whom had never fished the big pond before. The fishing was fantastic and the lake & weather were also. We fished 55 to 70 fow and only a couple miles north of town. The spoon bite was really on for us. Pro-king spoons that were black & green and silver & green did great on riggers & dipsys. Boards and 5 color leadcore with orange/gold spoons caught fish as well. We did get have some success on flasher/fly later in the weekend. Pro-king dodgers with green & crystal flys worked in the same area. The full moon kept fish biting well after sunrise and well before dark. Good luck to everybody. We kept our lead lengths long in the short water, it really seemed to help.

Fished Coho Saturday went 10 for 12 with my dad. 2 Bows, 2 Cohos, the rest Kings. We ran 4 leadcores and 2 riggers. No dipseys...spoons on the leads and No.3 plugs on the riggers. Best luck was in 55 FOW North when the boats cleared out...highlight of our day Saturday was our rigger arm snapping clean off outta nowhere when we hit the up button to get the ball up with a nice King on. Luckily got a backup rigger and the cable didnt break and it wasnt the rigger with hawk on it...Sunday was tough for us, started North again tryed to work same waypoints but hard with all the traffic. Only got 2 decent Kings and 2 shakers that went back. Then got a tip picked up and ran South but missed the bite....boated one of our skinnyest Kings to date in second pic. Quit with 2 in box Sunday...good luck out there.

Hit the big lake for my first time out in my boat. This was quite an experience. I have spent 3 years collecting used gear, we made our own down rigger support system. We read as much as we could and went for it . First night nothing . Talked to guys cleaning fish and got more tips. The next morning nothing, talked to more guys , bought more stuff and went out again. That night we got 3 for 4. A coho, a steelhead and one king. The high lines with Wonder Bread spoon got three hits in a row. Set them 50 feet back, added a 3 oz off shore snap weight and sent them out another 50 feet. Next morning we lost two hogs. That night we got one king on a Howie frog fly on mag dipsey out 130.. Next day nothing. You spent many hours preparing, hoping to get a bite, hoping every small detail is in place, and you wait and wait and wait and then bam, you have a monster on. The heart pumps fast , you have to scramble to get other lines out of the way, keep the boat on course in waves and the entire crew us the boat were novices . It is such a high. Then you see the fish and are so close to getting it in the boat. You remember all the other times you saw fish like that swim off never to be seen again. I can not even describe the excitement. I want to say thanks to all the guys at the cleaning station who gave me information to help me learn. It seems as if everyone said something different so it was hard to put a plan together. One nice guy even gave me a fly so I could copy it. Everyone around the landings and cleaning station was very friendly. I love fishing here. Thanks again everyone. The Angler bait shop was great. Got lots of tips there. The other one, not so much.
