Looking for more fishing buddies

A place where folks with boats can pick up others and a place where folks without boats can make it known that they'd like to go out on a boat when there is room!

Anybody want to jump on and try to jig for Lakers out of converse tonight afterwork, launch at 5pmish?

I have an old 17' aluminum boat w 40hp that is mostly reliable. 😆

Hey Joe did ya get out? Will keep ya in the list for future trips. DYP was a blast! We went 12 for 14 yesterday, as many salmon as lakers so things are looking up. Got a couple 7” salmon on lead core, not sure we have ever boated them that small… thought the 1st one was a smelt when it was in the water:)

Did well Friday PM on lakers between garden island and Thompsons point jigging/retrieving big spinners! Nothing huge but always encouraging when you hook up with a fish on the first cast!
Same program of motoring up wind then drifting down wind letting lures get to the bottom and slow retrieve. If you don't have electronics (like me) study a depth chart for the area you plan to fish and work the areas contor line change.
Unlike the steady calm winds of Friday, we hit the same area again yesterday early evening for a couple hours and it was raging! White caps, 2-3 footers and very few boats on the lake. Wild adventure but unproductive fishing.
