Those are big walleyes! Did you fish out of Erie, PA or out of Ohio near Sandusky?

Ah,
Tarpon and Jack! I can't wait to get back to Puerto Rico and catch a few myself. What artificial baits do you use for tarpon and jack? I'd like to bring my wife's cousin in PR some lures from the mainland next time I go.

Those are big crappies. I don't think I've ever seen them that big around here.

I use lighter gear and do a lot of casting, just to give you a preface for the size gear I use.

The tarpon and the Jack in those Pic's were caught on Tsunami Holographic Swim Shad's usually in 3/8oz or 1oz. Mullet/ Black Back has been the color that works for me. I also have caught snook, cubera snapper, mackerel, and shark on those baits as well.

I also like the D.O.A. C.A.L. Shad swim baits. Red/gold and Greene have been two of my go to colors on those. I normally put them on a 3/8oz or 1/2oz jig head. I know a 3" baits seem small, but I caught my biggest Cubera on one of these baits and have caught several tarpon on them as well. Greene works great for yellowtail snapper.

I also make some home made jigs using silver christmas tinsel and a 3/8oz flathead jig. You can also use yellow, white, or chartruese Pompano jigs, I again prefer 3/8oz or 1/2oz jigs. For my jigs I'll use gold or chartreuse twister tails on them.

Hey GS,
We got into a mess of Jack Crevalle last trip out... most of 'em kept breaking us off on the rig legs. We boated 11 and the biggest one was pushing 30 lbs.
They are a nuisance fish down here... just follow a shrimp boat around and you can catch jacks till your arms are jello!! :yes: :thumbsup: We never actually target them though...would be fun on a flyrod though! :yes:

I rarely target them either, but they are fun to catch for the fight. Under 10 pounds they're a nuisance, but over 10lbs they're a lot of work and fun. If I'm having a bad day on the water, normally there is a jack around to make it a bit better.

In the fall we have huge schools of them exploding on the water. Its fun to get in the middle of them on light gear, especially with people that don't fish much.

No pics from me. We've been sucking rudder the last two weeks. Where have all the salmonids gone? :sad:

I'd give my middle nut to go walleye fishing right now. I'd give them all to slaughter some mallards...

Take a trip to the Columbia. We've had Chinook and steelhead thick for a couple months now.
The whole river has steelhead right now.
The Walleye have been slow and, ever since they took the slot limit off, the fish seem to be shrinking over all. Too many meat fisherman on the Columbia for walleyes these days.

The walleyes days on the Big C are limited they think they eat salmon and both states want them gone. We are really lucky with fish in our river. Lots of salmon and steelies!

Yep, and that is funny because I took part in a warmwater test fishery in Oregon, including the Willamette in downtown Portland and not one warmwater fish had a salmonid in it's digestive tract. There was one small mouth with a baitfish(?) that was not identifiable.
The tests were done while the spring flushing occurs with millions of steelhead smolts in both big rivers(Columbia and Willamette).

That crappie on the left has a HUGE mouth. Looks like 6 good fillets right there.


The more I look at it, I swear that fish looks photoshopped.

Sorry vrother, not photoshopped. I dont have to get in a penis size debate over fishing on the internet (not to mention I have no idea how to photoshop anything). Its a legit fish that went 2lbs if I remember right. Its still in my freezer at home waiting to get mounted...id be happy to put up more pics of a frozen fish in a couple of weeks when I get home for your validation

No man. I don't mean it bad. Just the way the gills up look, it looks like a largemouth, well, mouth on a crappie. I guess it's my imagination. I didn't mean to say you were fudgin on size. That's my bad. :beer: It just looks like a weird mouth for a crappie to me.

Is there a possibility she's full of eggs? That would explain it.

Yea, them are kings. That's about as big as they get in my puddle. Those are 20.8 and 23.4. Every once in a while you get one in the 25-27 range but those are pretty rare.

The coho run 4-7 normally, 10-14 on the high end and later in the summer. I think we had a ten pound ho this afternoon. Early this season we were doing 20 coho an hour. Lately its been about an hour between bites. :sad:

Yep, some people here start fishing silvers(Coho) in June out in the ocean. It takes less than an hour to limit a boat and you rarely get all of the lines out. I personally don't see the point of going out in the ocean to chase silvers when they are that small. From September on, you can catch silvers in the rivers and they'll be 10-14# with occasional to 17-20# range depending year to year. Unfortunately, the forcast for Silvers this fall is slim but, the silver lining is a forecast of 800K for Kings in the Columbia and it's tribs.
I'd rather eat kings but, I prefer the spring run fish because they are higher quality by far.
Biggest problem with our fall king runs is it overlaps the duck/geese/deer/elk seasons.
