PLANNER BOARDS OR JIGG BOXES OR DOWNRIGGERS WHEN THE ICE IS OUT ???

WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK THAT WOULD PRODUCE MORE FISH THROUGH APRIL AND MAY ?

Re: PLANNER BOARDS OR JIGG BOXES OR DOWNRIGGERS WHEN THE ICE IS OUT ???

Salmon should be in the very top of the water column at ice out so any of the above will work. Even flatlined mono should work. I use both DRs and PBs with leadcore. I drop the DRs 5-10 feet initially and use 2-3 colors of lead. Many will drag live bait and flies at ice out...I use metal all season long.

Won't be long now. I was hoping the wind would begin breaking ice but I guess since it did not, its a sign that the ice is still pretty thick. It happens fast though...

Re: PLANNER BOARDS OR JIGG BOXES OR DOWNRIGGERS WHEN THE ICE IS OUT ???

i fish alot of shallow edges so the downrigger is more of a pain to use, i leave that at home. also i fish live smelt til the bait dealers run out before using metal. for setups i have cortland trolling line, leadcore, and mono with a tiny bb shot on it. been playing more with the mono in really shallow water

Hi Benny,

Why are you using a different handle? The reason I ask is your IP is the same. BTW ALL CAPS was the tip off.

*Hi there, we have a club of 15 members who all use the same machine for accessing this forum. That’s why it looks like I am changing my screen name.*

See I fixed that for you. All you have to do is not use ALL CAPS, and be pleasant and I’m sure everyone would be happy to speak with you. You seemed to have developed a reputation for YELLING and making rediculous statements which I think some people do not appreciate. Sometimes being civil and mature can go a long ways.

Wow your whole club's cumulative IQ wouldn't qualify for a basic entry level Mensa club card. Maybe not even a library card.

No room for this kind of back an forth. Not on this site please!! Capt. Bobby

Spent my day yesterday tying Carrie Stevens Favorite fly "Gray Ghost". We have a very important fishing heritage here in New England. I love tying flys for trolling these waters. Some folks walked away with my exhibition flys. Wishing all you folks on this site a very successful season!!! Capt. Bobby

That is a Sweet Gray Ghost! Traditional pattern. Topped off with real junglec@ck very nice. How big is that salmon mount? It's a cocker.

Re: PLANNER BOARDS OR JIGG BOXES OR DOWNRIGGERS WHEN THE ICE IS OUT ???

Bobby did you video that?

Re: PLANNER BOARDS OR JIGG BOXES OR DOWNRIGGERS WHEN THE ICE IS OUT ???

No, but when I get a chance I'll do a video of Carrie Stevens method of dressing a Gray Ghost. Here's some tandem Black Ghost & Rainbow Smelt for a client headed to Lake Champlain. Capt. Bobby

Re: PLANNER BOARDS OR JIGG BOXES OR DOWNRIGGERS WHEN THE ICE IS OUT ???

This's always been a good pattern where there's Smelt around. Wasn't too concerned about sparseness. There's some big fat LL Salmon in champ!!!!! Capt. Bobby

Bobby, those are some very nice flies.

I would like to order a few of them if that's possible.

Thanks in advance. Please let me know.
