Captain Dave and I just acquired a second boat. She is a custom modified 32ft Marinette. We hope to have it in the water with the “Hooker Too” by mid May. Business has been great for the last several years and we thank all our customers for their support.
We haven’t named her yet. Any suggestions?
Here is piece about what I will be covering in the Seminar.
Dave and I are off to La Crosse WI to do a sport show. When I return I will be working on an instruction page “How to rig downrigger cameras”. Plus a forum where other downcammers can share tips and videos.
The X4 UPSHOOTER
“Using video to catch more and bigger fish” is the topic for this years Seminars. Captain Peter has been using video cameras beneath the waves of Lake Superior to observe the conditions and reactions to his lure presentations. Stop by and see captains Peter and Dave at the La Cross and Duluth Sport Shows. Check this link for details. http://shamrockprod.com/
Set up for Lake Superior fishing
On a cold a rainy afternoon, Captain Dave Dahl with guests, Keith and Jolene. Near the Duluth entry they found some hungry salmon and lake trout. Dipsy divers, Xraps on the trolling boards, and downriggers at 20 ft.
Last year in August, Ruth’s husband Wendell caught a 22 pound lake trout. This time Ruth caught the biggest trout.
After a few cancellations due to waves and weather we finally go out on Lake Superior. The fish were ready and waiting and the action was fast. We landed a total of 25 lake trout and 10 coho salmon. the crew opted to release some of the bigger trout in favor of the better eating ones. the hot lures of the day were xraps in pink, clown, and parrot, UV thunderstick, Miss Dolly (our Lady Gaga)spoon, and a dodger with peanut fly. Most were caught of the board lines but several were caught on downriggers and dipsy divers.
On May 10th we took advantage of great weather and invited retired captain Randol . Fishing off park point in 75ft of water. The water was muddy from storms and the water temp was 49 to 50. We had fast action on coho salmon and lakers. Three fish caught on spoons off the downriggers at 10 to 35 ft, 8 caught on xraps and thunder sticks. Orange and pink were the hot colors.
After a week of strong northeast winds. Captains Peter and Dave Dahl. Went fishing for some food on Lake Superior. After an hour or so of searching they were rewarded with some nice lake trout, a salmon, plus a pelican fly by. Reminds me of Florida.
