Re: Rufus woods walleye

If you are launching at Seaton launch run down river a couple miles, you will find an island. Fish the south shore line in the slack water right on the bottom. Another spot that has been good for us is down river a little ways there is a large rock sticking out of the water near the north shore. Sta...

Re: BUILDING A FISHING FARM POND

Questions like you are asking might be better asked some place other than a public forum, If state and federal agencies get word of you building a fish pond the permit process could take years to complete. You will have to prove where you are getting the water from to fill your pond and where your r...

Re: Sponsors hurting site

Just curious Aaron, if there are no pop up banners in use then what are the advertisements that keep blinking on and off (one on the bottom and one on each side of the page) as I am trying to view a page? If they are not for your adds maybe you could tell me how I can get rid of them. Thanks

Re: Sprague Lake Questions

We troll #7 Flicker Shad all the time. We attach it to a swivel on the the main mono line (no leader) set back about 100' -130' and troll about 2-3 mph. With that set back you should be fishing about 12-15 foot deep. Watch your electronics because Sprague lake is only about 19-20 foot deep in the de...

Thanks for the update Phil, I have been on the brink of buying a unit like that for a couple years and your update may have made my decision to buy one when we get home in the spring. Bob

Re: 18 Starcraft Holliday

Al, hopefully all is well with you and all yours and if you are selling such a great fishing machine that it is just working toward an upgrade. When we get back from Arizona in the spring I would truly enjoy getting together with you folks for a fishing trip.

I am a life long Garmin fan. My current unit is the 741xs and the TM 150 transducer, this unit has served me well for the past 6 years, I just take advantage of the free updates. I did a lot of research before buying the 741 and the one piece of advise I would read over and over was that even if you...

Just a heads up that in the new regs WDFW mistakenly omitted the section of the Spokane River from SR 25 bridge to Little Falls Dam.

I am pretty well geared up for Stripped Bass at Lake Havasu and I use some of the divers for Walleye in lakes and they have produced well for me. I have found that when water temps rise above 70 degrees Walleye will suspend about mid water column and seem to have similar habit as Stripped Bass in La...

We missed some bites and lost a few trout , one was at least 5 pounds. The kokanee had a few lice behind the fins. We were fishing the top 15 ft. of water...

Re: Anyone caught experienced with Tiger Trout (not Tiger Muskie)

Hi Kieth, as long as the water level is down you shouldn't have any problem launching with your motorhome. When you head down the road to the launch just bear to the right and that will take you the proper way around the circle, then there is plenty of room to maneuver while backing into the water. ...
