Re: question about livescope power use

Looks like the livescope uses 21 watts typically and 58 max. If you have 3 batteries, I'll assume one is main and the other 2 are auxiliary? So, a couple of fairly healthy marine batteries are likely around 200 amp hours together. (only use 80% before recharging/ 160 ah usable) a couple scotty downr...

Re: First time fly fishing, Montana

Not sure if it will help, but the town of Darby, near Hamilton had some of the best (fly) fishing Ive ever experienced. My family settled that area, and is all over in the town museum. Blodgett Canyon was named after my great great uncle, Maxwell Blodgett. The population of Darby is unchanged.... ar...

Re: Lake Washington Crawfishing spots?

Ive dropped 5 pots in Lake Washington a few times. Caught nothing but sculpin and bullfrog tadpoles. Ive soaked pots near the mouth of mercer slough, around the cedar river mouth, various spots along the east channel and near lake union.... all skunked. Ive trapped Sammamish twice with the same resu...

Re: Site Question Not Off Topic

I know many people dont care for the sponsor's / guide reports. I personally am not bothered by guide or tackle manufacturer's reports that are sponsors of this site. I can tell that the report is from a sponsor right away and understand that many of these reports come from very skilled fisherman wh...

Re: Crappie Fishing in Snohomish County

I'm quite a bit south of you, but the combustion engine ok lakes Ive caught crappie in down here are Lake Washington. Lake Sammamish and Lake Sawyer. I hear Lake Washington has some monsters, but the little 8-10 inch Lake Sawyer crappie have been on fire in the evening lately.

Re: Baitcaster vs. Spinning Gear

+1.... grew up with spinning gear. Baitcasting has been so difficult for me, Ive all but given up. I have been able to stop my line with my spinning rod by hand very accurately for quite some time now, but still wish I could bait cast more comfortably. I would imagine that most backcountry and canoe...

Re: Panfish Jig Fishing

Ive been jig fishing a lot lately. Trout, crappie, bluegill and bass. Casting a jig or tube with a 1/32 jig head seems to be the best for me. Hook size is small on most 1/32 oz heads, but bigger hooks can be found in that weight. That ultra slow sink rate allows for a very slow retrieve, and a very ...

I'll try filleting and weighing both ways this time to see how much meat % im wasting. Ive bled my fish and thrown them in the fridge, but still haven't cleaned them from yesterday.

Re: How to target the holdovers?

Trolled our hearts out. Got to the derby at about 4. Only holdovers we found were less than 2 lbs. After we entered them in the derby, we saw several 2 plus pound fish weighed. Oh well. We're waiting for the prizes at noon. Will report back later... Didn't bait fish at all. Didn't cast and receive a...

Re: Super fast small trout boneless filets

Lake Meridian this time. Was trying holdover targeting methods in all of the similarly sized nearby lakes I could this last week. Only two larger fish I caught all week came from Morton at 15", Could have been larger stockers or holdovers? Oh well, we're on our way to the Lake Wilderness derby Now! ...

Super fast small trout boneless filets

Filleting small trout has been a pain for me. The trout is not exactly my favorite fish to eat and I have been spending far too much time trying to not waste anything. They all end up in the smoker a few times a year, and the biggest annual trout effort for my household is just about to happen. For ...

Re: How to target the holdovers?

Lots of sculpins in the rocky areas of this lake. Also, last year was the first year Ive heard of (trapped some) invasive northern "virile" crawfish in the lake. Could be a ton by now. This stream fed lake also has a fair amount of largemouth bass, pumpkinseed sunfish and a few wild cutthroat trout....

Re: How to target the holdovers?

If I was targeting holdovers, I think trolling 3in crankbaits that'll get down to 12 to 15ft range for the deeper parts of the lake or jointed rapalas in water less then 10ft would be my 1st choice. Sandshrimp smelly or krill smelly jelly will get those plugs smacked a lot more. Also if you see lar...
