HSO salmon/steelhead fishing show

Recommended Posts

I just finished watching the current episode on fishing lake michigan. I think this is an opportune time to raise the question why we don't have a forum for salmon fishing under fishing by species. There are a ton of different tactics and practices used for salmon trolling, and I am pretty sure many folks that use this HSOforum salmon fish, and even more who would like to try it. Does anyone else feel this way? Is this the right place to ask this question?

Thanks.

Lots of this info gets answered in the Duluth and Wi. forums.

A trout/salmon forum is a nice idea though and I will siggest it to the powers.

Yeah, that way any technical questions could be lumped into one forum, and let the area forums deal with specific questions with that area. Thanks.

Good idea! I work with a guy who salmon fishes lake michigan but doesn't know the first thing about fishing small lakes and rivers. It's wierd how specialized people get but I think we all would like to hear about the variety of fishing methods.

+1 I just came back from my first salmon fishing trip on Lake Michigan. Slow fishing but it was still a blast.

    • I built a Smitty Sled years ago and it worked great. But I had issues with it dragging on the snow and ice when trying to change directions. So I went and built a new sled that uses 2 sets of skis where the front skis would turn and help steer the sled. It is a rough build and I still plan on paining it. But I gave it a trial run and it seems to work pretty well. The only thing I think I will had is a stiffener board across the front of the plywood so the weight of my sled doesn't cause it to flex and rub on my cross member and a couple bungees connecting teh front ski supports to the rear ski supports so it doesn't over steer and tracks a little straighter.   I made a video and posted it to youtube.   Smitty Sled #2 Smitty Sled2.mp4
    • More cases found in SE Minnesota.   Thanks, Deer Farmers....   Chronic wasting disease 'is gaining traction' By JOHN ENGER Minnesota Public Radio   Nov 18, 2018 Updated Nov 19, 2018     The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says chronic wasting disease seems to be spreading along river corridors, where deer can easily travel.   Early testing confirmed four more cases of chronic wasting disease this hunting season. And in just the last few days, two more deer tested positive in a preliminary screening. Hunters in southeastern Minnesota have killed half a dozen chronic wasting disease infected deer this fall. Until this hunting season, there were only 17 confirmed cases of CWD in Minnesota’s wild deer herds. They were concentrated within a five-mile radius between Preston and Lanesboro. Michelle Carstensen leads CWD management for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. She says, one of those animals was shot several miles outside the known infection area. “We have solid evidence that this disease is persisting,” she said. “And we appear to have some spread to the northwest. This disease is gaining traction.” The DNR established a CWD management zone two years ago. Now, Carstensen says, it will have to be enlarged. “Our boundaries are going to change,” she said. “We set up that first zone based on the information we had.” And she said, more cases are likely. Deer hunting season closed Sunday across much of the state, but hunters in southeastern Minnesota have until Nov. 25. More cases of CWD are never good news, she said, but she has been able to mine the testing data for insights into how the disease is spread. All the infected deer were strong, mature bucks, looking for mates. The buck that was shot outside of the management zone, appeared to be traveling along the Root River. She says, CWD seems to be spreading along river corridors, where deer can easily travel.
    • If I get a Showdown soon and a newer Garmin for the bow of my boat then I would sell the Elite-5 with icepack and softwater transducer. 
    • I have refilled the 1 pounders in the past. I just don't like to do it. Always feel like they are not completely full. And yes I have watched videos on how ot do it.
    • Among others I have an Elite-5 as well and have used it for Ice fishing. It seems to run fine for a while then starts acting up. The GPS in the boat is really slow to track so it's been sitting on the shelf!  I hate being out with a bad product and screw up a whole weekend. That is why I pretty much stick with the FL-18 which has never let me down.    "For Sale"  Nice condition Lowrance Elite-5  Works perfectly!  😏
    • They sell 10's of thousands of the 20lb tanks for grills. Ice fishermen are probably the biggest market for 5lb and 11lb tanks, so we pay a premium for them because we are a small regional market.
    • yep, expensive because they are hard to find. I just refill the one pounders. easy and cheap. 
    • Why are the 5 lb. propane tanks so expensive and hard to find. I've looked online for them and they are usually about $60. 20# tanks are about $40 full. Wanting to possibly stop using the 1lb. tanks for my buddy heater and go with a 5lb. tank that will last longer. Oh, and I'm on foot 100% of the time. 
    • I was using a Marcum Showdown 5.6 and loved it. Then my teenage son started fishing with me and he has taken over the Showdown. So, I bought the ice pack for my Lowrance Elite-5 from my boat. It's OK but I much prefer the Showdown.  The Elite-5 will act up at times and it really ticks me off. Now I'm looking for a Showdown for myself again. 
    • Anyone have the latest and greatest on Morson area ice conditions?  Pretty early yet, but it’s been awfully chilly out there.   Thanks!
