    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?

    Yes, kokanee definitely swim away from gas powered trolling motor noise. Cure is just run longer lines for the most part.

    My issue with my gas outboard is with the small boat, any little wind or...

    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...

    Sticky: Nice Day!

    Went out this morning. Dropped in at Bruces, ran up to Indian creek. Was a little slow out in the deep water, even though marking plenty of fish from 20-40 ft. So worked in along the banks and was...

    That's hopeful for a good season. Being upstream of Dent Bridge is too early for that to be the majority of the fish.Correct me if I'm wrong, as the reservoir fills between now and July fourth when...

    That's bigger than I ever have seen or heard of out of Dworshak. One of the holdovers from last years breeders. No idea if anything bigger has been caught. I saw myself a 26 incher out of Cascade....

    Sticky: That sucked.

    Not a good day for catching fish. Started at Indian Crk, ended at Elk, caught one fish. A good one, but just the one.
