  1. what he said...... I have some "custom made" trees as well if you don;t add the twist at least flatten out the angle as you go down the tree... it really helps, the inward twist from top to down will help prevent lines jumping and crossing in turns, leave that upper tube open it can serve as another holder as well, or you can fashion an LED light on an adjustable pole drill small drain holes at the base of each holder if you can make the bases so you can swivel the tree out of the way as you come into the dock. i had so much fun puttin trees on the boat, they're probably the best addition i ever made, plus adjustable dual dipsy holders....
  2. IMHO.....Baileys Harbor has the best of both worlds...a little something for the wife, shopping, go around the other side with the boat for a day trip to Fish Creek then Egg Harbor, more shopping and good food, but fish on the Bailey's side...you really can not go wrong with the upper Door Peninsula in July and August for fishing or shopping ...and if the weather takes a turn for the worse...you can always duck out of the wind on one side or the other
  3. looks familar huh?

  4. couple trips, i lost my ass...if you find it could you please hand it back to me??!! other than that...my boat... salmon fishing, one dipsy w/ flasher fly, one moonshine and a j-plug..... other boat, one flasher fly... walleye fishing one deep diver husky jerk to a toothy critter, maybe a couple spinner rigs, over all good year, no boards, no copper or lead core, no rigger balls, no probes...at least under my watch
  5. like your avatar

  6. well that would explain that now ...wouldn't it.. thanx
  7. it seems everyone either uses a depth raider or sub troll, but i have never seen anyone talk about the IntelliTroll http://store.cannondownriggers.com/products/390754/IntelliTroll_Speed-N-Temp_System is there a reason??
  8. ummmm....yep...i know the feeling....mine started with a lund from the factory being t-boned on a highway....then insurance screwing me...then finding the right boat and having serious electrical issues..in the end if you weigh pros and cons and the pros of the boat outweigh the cons...keep her...... but be truthful in your list
  9. 10 lb mono and reef runners .... they make great walleye reels, i also have run up to 3 colors on them for SWR with 17lb mono ...a little stealth
  10. good to see ya here Steve!! the demise of one place will benefit another.....
  11. my theory about why fall perch fishing is so good, the invertebrates that they were feeding on have mostly hatched and the remaining stock of aquatic insects are in a form that are hiding on the bottom, requiring a lot of energy to find. all summer long gobs of insects are hatching out of the water to complete their life cycle, this stops on a gradual slope until finally in the late summer/early fall, all that left are inverts that are hiding or minnow based forage that has reached a size which that are better suited for walleye.. just a theory, but whatever the reason i know the perch bite is on...it is really hot on Winnebago right now with big fish being caught. I've only a couple opportunities to cash on the bonanza so far this year, but the best is about to happen with the cool nights....if you want to find me next weekend, i'll be reaping the rewards on Winnebago ...
  12. here's what i use for wind forecast. with a little experience you can guess if it will be too rough.... http://www.iwindsurf.com/windandwhere.iws?regionID=99&Isection=Wind+Forecast&model=true look for the forecast tables...the site seems to be dead nutts on 24 hrs in advance, and pretty good two days out, i really use it alot!! for wave height: http://www.glerl.noaa.gov/res/glcfs/glcfs.php?lake=m&ext=wv&type=F&hr=01 another wind: http://www.glerl.noaa.gov/res/glcfs/glcfs.php?lake=m&ext=wn&type=F&hr=00 after a while you will get the feel for what you can handle by looking at the forecast, then there are just those days they are just wrong...which can be frustrating when you call a trip off and you find yourself stewing when the winds are flat when it should be blowing
  13. this season i was letting out a ton of line on a wire dipsy, the line on the spool and the level wind were out of sync...so i dropped out 600' down the chute on a released mag diver...bounced it off bottom then put it in the chute rigger rod holder and smoked it back in as fast as i could reel it , i mean I was rippin it in... when at about 200' on the counter, the rod just doubled over..FISH ON!!! a nice king (which we landed) smacked the flasher fly combo... i wonder if we are going to slow sometimes,
  14. not really picky about quantities, so do this to your taste Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce....couple good dashes, you like it hot, add more orange marmalade......1/4 cup or so (3 TBLS = 1/4 cup) soy sauce....couple more good dashes, if you like it salty add more (actually more umami than salt) 1-2 cloves garlic (shallots?) choped, smashed, minced, however you like it hold the onion?? naaah!! 2TBLS minced zest and juice of one lime taste, add more of something if it isn't the way you like it (hot enough?!) mix and pour over skinless salmon fillets, marinade for as long as you like, grilled skin side up with a few chunks of apple wood added to the fire, gently basted with remaining marinade, turn, brush with more marinade, then kissed with a brush of butter just before removing from fire, plate and add a squeeze of lime...... off the hook!! the marmalade could be substituted w/ brown sugar , but it really isn't as good
  15. I'm just getting started in this aspect of walleye fishing....so in my mind’s eye… Outside boards, mag deep diver husky jerk 150-200 feet back Inside boards – deep reef runners/thunder sticks 75-125 feet back Dipsy Divers /mini disk 0.0 -0.5 setting with spoon 50-60 feet back Six board option, ditch the divers and set board outside with flicker shads 120-160 feet back Key – keep the inside deeper than the outside and preferably shorter lines deeper as you come inward I suspect there are even simpler ways and I am really looking forward to some better answers incorporating one lure type
