Hey, I'm new to the AZ fishing area. I've found Salome on the map - but where is Y cove and the islands?

Y-Cove
This picture shows "Y" Cove, which is where Bruce had mentioned.
Highway side of the lake between Grapevine and Schoolhouse ramps.



Mid-Lake Islands
This picture doesn't really show islands, but when it's low you can see them.
You can see them better from Tweeder's reply, but this shows you where they are compared to Salome (circled in blue) and the dam.

Got up to Roosevelt Friday afternoon and wind was howling.  Launched about 4:30 from Grapevine to see if we could find any fish before the derby Saturday.  Picked up one crappie in Y cove on a drop shot minnow so figured in that weather it was a good sign for Saturday.  Wrong, blanked on Saturday in perfect weather.  Hit Salome, the islands, the bridge, and Y cove again Saturday but nothing but bass.

Y cove is on the road side of the lake between school house and grape vine, not sure what islands you are talking about?

That looks to be the same as the two reels I have.  I would give mine rave (not mixed) reviews.  I sure would like to find them for sale again somewhere.

I have had two of these for quite some time.  They have two pins on opposite sides of the spool. You pop one up when you are at a depth you think might be productive.  If you hook one, you reel it in with line winding around the pin.  Then when you open the bail again it goes back to the exact same depth again.  I am pretty sure I got these reels from Bass Pro but do not remember for sure.  The reels are marked "Bill Dance Crappie Series 10" and have an apparent model number of BDCDL10 on the side.  Trouble is, since reading this thread I have tried to Google up the name and model number of the reels with no success.  Maybe they don't make them anymore but that would be too bad. These reels would seem to be just the ticket for some of the people following this thread.  If anybody finds a place to get them, please post that information.  I would like to get several more myself.

I looked around and found this.....Looks like it was a Zebco model made for Bill Dance. Can't find them for sale anywhere. Reviews on crappie.com were mixed, and way back in '05

The marks are on my braid main line and if I break off it's my flouro leader thus not affecting my marks. ......Art
Sorry Art, I was unawear you used a braid main line. This system sure saves a lot of TIME and agravation.

All are viable options and clearly there is more than one way to skin a cat. Tombstone's reel is exactly what I was envisioning...now to see if I can find em. In the mean time I'm going to try Art' s method and see if I can get lucky.

Thanks again to everyone that gave suggestions.
