Steelhead Q's

3 posts in this topic

I was wondering what some peoples favorite colors are for fishing steelheads, shorecasting from supieior. Do some work better than others?

Also, how deep are the steelhead if i'm casting and retrieving?

If you are shorefishing around the time of the run and want to do some casting; larger Panther Martins in gold work good, krocs in oranges and silvers, shad raps and other stickbaits in yellows, oranges, reds.

If they are staging to enter the rivers, they will usually be in the top half of the water column or all of the way to the bottom but it probably won't be much deeper than 15-20 FOW. You through something that catches their attention, your golden.

If you haven't noticed, for steelies, my favorite colors are oranges and variations of that.

I've probably caught more bows on blue/silver than any other color. I like to throw spoons, but will toss vibrax if I'm out on the water. They just don't throw far enuf for shorecasting.

    • Should look like this I believe. Very common connector.... I think Northern has them! 
    • That should be a very common two wire plug.  most trailer manufacturers should be able to help. I work for towmaster  and I know are parts store could help you out.  But a auto part store should be able to also.
    • They get your mind in the right position to catch crappies man!!!! lol, yes I'll keep a sharper eye on the crappie game around here this year, it's year number 2 up here and I'm running out of excuses lol
    • Cheeseheads suck.. why would you jump ship man? 
    • We planted 2 apple trees over 20 years ago out back. 1 died after a couple years and the other grew nice but maybe had 10 apples once at lits peak. The mrs would not let me cut it down. Lotta dead branches so this year she was ok with me cutting them off. It grew 1 apple from a high branch.   the apple is about 12 feet from the ground. 
    • And he's pulled off some very "sporting" shots with it. 
    • Must be slow at LOW iffen your headed here to get some shooting.    There haven't been new birds around the little Falls area that I've seen yet.  Just what's left of the locals.  Sitting at the river now I just heard one far off woodie.  
    • Everybody is a LIV except for me and thee.  And I am not so sure about thee.  
    • LIV's move the vote.  It's much easier when people didn't bother to vote.   That's why Trump should have been more...delicate.  He's forcing a massive block of LIV's to vote against him.   Early on in this campaign I could have sworn that the Clinton's or the DNC paid Trump to do what he did.  It couldn't have been made easier for Hillary.   What has Trump spent so far on his campaign?  A billion?  If he loses the election, the notoriety he has gained will probably earn him more than he spent.   And we're left with Clinton?  Good grief.
