I have my locator dialed in...shows thermoclines, side imaging, etc.  I'd rather have a fish hawk than my locator...my 2 cents.

Cohoho, I was being sarcastic. Let's just say, "if you only knew".

Fish Repellent, electronics are only so good....IF a person knows how to use them. A graph will tell a person sooo much more, if it is adjusted properly. A Fish Hawk should just confirm what a graph shows and how a person "reads" their rods. They do help get dialed in, but it should be dialed in to what a person is doing. Get confident in fishing without a Fish Hawk because you never know when a probe will be lost or batteries will die.

Cohoho - same here!  I don’t get it, but until I find replacements, I keep trying!  Message me and maybe we can solve some things.

  Fishing this lake is too addictive and I’ll sleep when I’m dead. I can’t seem to get any of my buddies up early anymore though. Maybe hangovers are harder now??? So I guess I’ll fish afternoon into night or by myself.

The more I learn, the more questions I seem to have.  Now that I have a Fishhawk and have more info at the ball, it appears I have been doing everything wrong for years...however, I seemed to always have success back then.  

- What I mean is that in order to get around 2.5 mph at the ball, I now need the boat to be moving anywhere from 1.5 - 3.5+. (used to just set the boat at 2.5 on the finder...)  

- I used to wait until I would see fish or bait and set up in that area.  Now I'm looking for the "magic 50 degree water" (almost impossible in  the shallows it seems) and don't ever mark fish or bait there.  I do seem to catch fish when and where I mark them, but that never seems to be the magic areas.  

Thoughts?   

- Am I being too picky?

- Is the temp more important out in deeper water (over 150?  Over 250?)

- Past years it seems there was a lot more activity in 250 fow or more.  This year, seems everyone is reporting less than 140/150'...is that true?  If so, why?  Is anyone still venturing out deep?

Thanks in advance.

Cohoho, salmon don't bite at night. Stay in bed and sleep. LOL

Full moon phase can be productive for a all night or all day trip.

It seems most days the reports show fish activity around sunrise & sunset.  Occasionally during the day too.  Is there ever consistent action throughout the night?  Any moon or weather phases that seem to dictate time of day activity?


Thanks.

Nice conditions Wednesday AM off Manitowoc except for the FOG which always makes nice terrible.  I slowly work out to 70ft. South of town and took a medium King shortly after I had lines set in about 75ft.. off a spoon and wire dipsy.  Nothing until about 6AM when my opposite mag dipsy out 170ft. took a Laker flasher lbb fly in 100ft. of water.  One other fish on and that was it.  Still cold surface water of 57 or so at least to 135ft.. where I turned in and considerably colder down.  When the fog lifted and it did quite quickly about 8AM I pulled.  Looks like most of the Manitowoc derby is going to be fishable and no fog which can really suck with 100 boats out there so good luck and hope you get some decent action.
