good to hear he is back, was getting nervous as my stuff has really gotten beaten up over the years. the quick jig i just bought is only jigging maybe 20/22 inches but seems to produce as well as my 4 foot jigger. definitely need to upgrade some stuff this year. if you talk to him see if he can come up with a decent white perch fly about 3 inches single point, the smelt population has crashed big time in sebago with the alewives and it seems the salmon are feeding on either small white perch or smallmouths thru the summer. the bios are saying white perch but ive never seen a whiteperch in the big bay
Hey Fishless man glad to see your order couple weeks ago.......got me interested and went up to fish with Glen on Sebago Sportfishing Charter. Caught seven salmon mostly on a new pattern you haven't seen yet. Got back into it about a year ago and had a great year in 2020. The quick jig should be doing 33-36" per jig as the cam's are the same we developed in 2011 I think. But check it again when it is dry...count number of prop revs between cam engaging and disengaging should be 9-10 revs and each rev should be taking in 33" or (diameter of spool X 3.14). This quick jig happens 10-11 times per minute at 2.5 - 2.7 mph.
Anyway, about Sebago fishing, Ozzie and I were impressed even though that was first I had learned of the alewives. I will be working some up along the perch like pattern and the alewives' shape and get you some prototypes to try out but realistically not until next spring.
Good to hook up with the old guys!
Glad to hear your father is fishing, Mike. Ya send me that pattern and I will work up something...I was wondering why you said perch. Glen told me you were fishing around him. We hit the salmon at the Dingly Island area seven fish in less than an hour.
How long will you be fishing this year?
I'll send another clip right out to the shop
we plan to pull the boat out around tday but am watching the river temps right now. got slightly iced in last year, dont want to do that again. lake is on fire right now. the biologist has been calling them white perch, they definitely are not alewives getting spit up in the big bay and they have yellow eyes, not red like the bass
I just sent you the clips and a couple prototypes you will have them tomorrow

I went Sebago couple weeks ago an wind kept me from fishing good spots. Caught several small Landlocks & Lakers (Touge).....
Love seeing the posts, Thanks!!
Ozzie put multiple 5lbers in his boat this year and really gave a lot of help getting the new fishjigger ready. Wait to you see the video. Maybe Ozzie can send you the YouTube link
we have the skijiggers out all year as well and jims jiggers when the wind really picks up. i need to update my older skijigger for the updated version, the new ones dont dive like my old one. i really like his newer design, need to get one for the other side this winter/spring. how was the traffic on winni this year, sebago was a ghost town, was almost like it was my own lake this year
W/Covid giving folks more free time, Winni was always busy. W/our crashed Landlocked Salmon program we were mostly fishing for 5 & 6 year old's (YO's). Of course this is great for catching trophy fish, but will be tough as next years fishery will be 6 YO's & 2 YO's. Our fish are being raised at the Nashua Federal Hatchery where controlled temp's are affording much larger 1 YO's to be stocked. I've heard rumors NH F&G are considering increasing amount of 1 YO's to be stocked next spring. After their Smelt survey they've said our Smelt are in excellent shape. My fingers are crossed. Capt.
