    Default Trolling Speed

    Thanks FSHFNDR and F-Bomb for answer my question. So the GPS integrated in the fish finder device is a good tracking for the slow moving boat. I did try my old Tom Tom GPS on the lake and it couldn't track the slow moving speed.

    Last year I upgraded my kicker motor steering with the TR1 autopilot and I love it. It has the GPS interface but I only need just the trolling speed. I'll do more research on the Garmin depth finder and hopefully will get one before year end.

    Often I tracking my trolling speed by looking at my DR line and something float on the water, when the line pass by the object then I count one thousand one (~1 second) and guess how far the line passed that object, often that was 14" ~ 16"/sec. With that guess my calculate is about .8 ~ .9 MPH. I often caught fish with that guessing but with a device that read the slow moving speed is perhaps more accuracy and prefer.

    I'll headed to Anderson Ranch tomorrow, that will be a long day and hopefully the Kokanee still hot.

    KokaneeJoe, since you seem to be running into Chinook I want to target, any suggestions on tackle setup? I have using some herring in helmets but probably need a big Flasher with them.

    Only caught the one big one. I can only tell what I used; A small orange/pink dodger a short leader and matching bug (Murphy's Kokanee Kombo) with leading hook tipped with a kernel of shoepeg corn in tuna juice. Set back 35 feet and 30 feet deep on a downrigger. Just standard kokanee gear.

    Default Slow and few kok.

    Solo fishing 4 hrs today at LP. First 2 hrs (10:00 ~ 12:00 PM) there wasn't any bite at all. Afternoon boated 3 - 13" kok at 25' deep and 1 last year planed Chinnok (released). Ford fender + orange kokabow + shoepeg corn. The water temp. was much cooler than in the Anderson. That was 67 deg. in the morning, later in afternoon in some area that was 72 deg.
    Talked to other couple at loading dock, they caught 3 trout and 1 kok at 23' deep.

    Default The Spawn

    Well, we should be at spawning time by now. Has anyone given it a try in the past few weeks? There hasn't been a post here in a solid 2 weeks. Will head up the hill this week to see about catching a few of next year's fish.
