Took a day off and fished Friday in Homer.
Fishing was good though I didn't catch any really large fish. I would say they averaged about ten pounds.
First two fish I caught on conventional gear. Then I switched over to an ultralight rod, my GLoomis 4'6" rated for 1-4lbs test line though I did use 20lbs braid. I can't see well enough to tie knots on anything thinner. lol.
I also mounted a gopro to my down rigger ball. Lighting was bad as well as the water having a little murkiness to it. Not anywhere near as clear as I wanted it but we will see. The fish don't seem too camera shy. This was with the baits running about 8 ft back of the ball.
2 for 3 on the conventional gear. 4 for 5 using the ultralight. Kept 4 with my dad's proxy fishing for 3 hours. Red label herring seemed to work. Did not use a flasher when I used the ultralight.
