      Persistence pays off! Nice job Laurent. The big ones will come
    2. Thanks for the Tips it paid off today. I posted my first ever Laker not quite as nice as your beast but I'll take a 3.3 lb starter. Thanks!!!
    3. Chef Rover 0
      i'm a bit slow... and a newby... so structure breaks are when there's cliff's or the water drops to deep areas? i got a nice fish finder but so far ...more haven't found many on the bottom... ready to buy a cheap down rigger as I see lots of marks all the time between 20 and 60 feet when traveling along...
    4. NJ Squatch 0
      both but target the ones on bottom. Suspended fish are typically in a negative mood
    5. do you find them suspended or off the bottom? thanks for the tips much appreciated
    6. NJ Squatch 0
      Laurent. The fish can be anywhere between 40-100’ focus on the breaks. If you don’t see marks keep moving.
    7. Beautiful fish!!! Thanks for the tips I just started fishing here with a new Kayak i've ben trolling with down rigger w/ no luck, what depth are you marking ...more fish and jigging at?
    8. NJ Squatch 0
