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...

Re: How to target the holdovers?

I spent a few hours trying to test selective holdover catching theories on lake morton yesterday. I verified with some local lake front homeowners that there were definitely holdovers in the lake before the recent stocking. I did some dropshotting, jigging, trolling and bait soaking. I couldnt keep ...

Re: How to target the holdovers?

I found a full container of radioactive looking cracked out worms at a boat launch a few years ago. They were definitely more active, but didn't seem very bright.

Sure is a lot easier than soldering all these wires, hearing aid batteries and led bulbs to these nightcrawlers! Lol!

Re: How to target the holdovers?

Thanks for the idea, i have noticed that the freshly stocked trout seem to avoid the nightcrawler. This might be a good tactic to finding some more experienced, older fish. I'l give it a test run this week on another local recently stocked lake. Hopefully there are some holdover trout in lake 12 to ...

Re: How to target the holdovers?

Thought I would post a little more here hoping to spur some interest. Only a week left! Over the years, my biggest fish have come from powerbait fishing the bottom, from a boat. Near a steep drop that has a shallow bluff on one side and the deepest hole on the other. Last year we trolled plugs and s...

How to target the holdovers?

This month on the 27th is the annual Lake Wilderness trout derby, also opening for many western washington lakes. My daughters, wife and I have competed in this derby for many years, kind of a family tradition. We have trolled some years and powerbait fished others.... actually did better the years ...

Y2k? ....Somebody help!... pinch me or something ... I was dreaming that I was 40 years old and it was 2019! What a terrible nightmare!

Seriously, what are you talking about? The link you provided just confused the issue for me. Why is there date problems from 2000 in the year 2019?

Re: Merc 4hp 4 stroke

^^^^ yep. Ethanol boils at a much lower temp than gasoline alone. Fuel boiling is probably a less likely scenario than many of the things youve already checked, but because of this, is something that and intelligent person could easily miss. Good call on questioning the ignition system. Ignition coi...

trolling small lakes w/ small boat *tip*

I fish small south king county lakes a lot. I troll for trout, crappie, kokanee, bass and even troll slowly while casting towards shore. Trolling these little lakes can be quite a challenge with thier small size and weed beds that pop up out of nowhere. Then factor in the wind that blows through the...

Re: location info

The vast majority of time, I am looking for info on a specific lake. I never feel the need to just search through random hot spots for example or random months to fish or bait to use. I always have a specific lake in mind when I look for hot spots or what ever else. I would prefer to have an obviou...

Re: Merc 4hp 4 stroke

Welcome to the site! I'll take a stab at it. 3 possibilities come to mind. Sounds like this motor has an external fuel tank? Does this tank have a vent? If its a modern tank, it's likely in the fuel cap. It may be restricted and not letting air into the tank. The fuel pump will be sucking fuel from ...

Re: Who Wants To Test My Imported LiFePO4 Batteries....

Might want to confirm those batteries are actually Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) instead of Lithium Ion (LiCoO2) as labeled. The chemistry is different between the two and, from my research, it appears KS Energy sells both but labels them accordingly. Good read - https://batteryuniversity.com/le...
