    Sticky: Still great fishing

    Went out today, Friday July 24. I didn't think the koke would be traveling far up lake after they were so plentiful mid lake and dam end last week. So I went back to Elk Creek at the inlet. Started...

    Perfect day on the water... slow bite, got 12 for two of us for 3 hours of dragging lines. Downriggers really slow, even though were at 20-30ft. Long lines with 1/2 or 1/3 ounce were best. Never...

    I'd appreciate the thoughts as well. I've also had some tell me that you can run your gas powered to propel the boat and use the GPS electric on the bow to steer. Ever tried that?

    As I posted from last week, I went only as far as Elk River. I'd rather be fishing closer to the ramp than further away. I have a Honda outboard for trolling, so I have to set back 100-120 feet on...

    Sounds like you're getting the hang of it. There are no hard and fast rules that will let you catch fish all the time and every trip. I've had trips, this year, where we caught just a couple. Big...
