  1. Nice job on the steel Justin. I joined Jarod after fishing in NB in the AM. We went 0-3. What went was: Blk/Org PK on a 2 color. Fire Tiger Hot-n-tot 120 back from the board. Coho dodger/fly on a one color. Water temp was 38-40. We trolled from the piers to the state park in 15-30 FOW.
  2. Finished the day 9 for 15...all Coho. Hot set ups: Hot pink X-rap. BTF-259 3 color with a tangerine crush? Other set ups that took a fish or had a hit: Orangegasm Stinger on a 3 color. Hot head X-rap. STF Fire Tiger. Tequila Sunrise Stinger on a 2 color. BTF that is Aquamarine blue and green. We farmed two fish at the boat( One got off in the net the other came off trying to lift it into the boat) and had one break off. We did best in 25-30 FOW within a mile of the arms. Water temp. was anywhere from 37-39. Best speed was 2.5 - 3 mph. All in all it was a good day on the water finishing one short of a limit.
  3. I love my Rhinos for other types of fishing. The glow tips tend to burn out fast, if you have used them during the day allot. I had a ML once. It had great action and feel to it. Unfortunately my wife found a way to break an indestructible rod.

Bridge Tenders monitor on Channel 9 and transmit on Channel 12.
  5. The level wind guide can be bent to accommodate the size of the knot.
  6. I ran a 400' last year. Unfortunately, with the cooler temps, it didn't produce many fish. I don't recall having any kinks with it. If I have to replace any copper in the future, it will be with the SC. I believe it only cost a couple more dollars per 300'. The only draw back I can see with running a 600', is the amount of pull it has on a in-line board.
  7. From the looks of the truck, it wasn't the first time he had this misfortune.
  8. I have a 7 color on my 209. As mentioned before the retrieval rates sucks.
  9. 20# pound Seaguar here too. I use it for copper, lead core, dipseys and sliders.
  10. I use the HT tote. It holds all of my gear (any combination of 6 rods or tip-ups, pliers, jig box, 2 extra spools of line, ice scoop and a few other things). While it may take me a little longer to put the rods away, it sure beats having to untangle them the next time out. It will not accommodate any rod and reel combos over 24 inches, so I don't think it would be practical for you (Adam).
  11. They are made by Michigan Stinger. Sizes larger than 4 oz. should be out soon. http://www.mistinger.com/divebombs.htm
  12. After letting out 2 colors for me.
  13. This article is along the same lines as the previous post with a better explanation. http://news.spreadit.org/obama-fishing-ban/
  14. Yep, celebrated my 17th by going to the fishing show at D&R last Saturday.
  15. I remove my cast control caps on all of my reels, in the spring, for oiling. Had one fall off once and the the reel will not work without it.
  16. Went to D&R today. I picked up 6 spoons, 2 boards, 4 attractors, rod, reel and some creepers for the ice.
  17. Got yell at once because I made it from a fly bridge to a dipsy rod in 3 steps.
  18. Wrapping the Power Pro around the pinch pad on the board.
  19. Thanks for the report Duane. Always wanted to try that, but I never have made the drive over there.
  20. It would seem that a great deal of the policing would fall upon those that weigh the fish in (bait shops). Will they be subjected to the lie detector test too? I am in favor of not having a boat registration. This would help build the pot and increase the chances of the "weekend warrior" winning.
  21. The Department of Natural Resources and Environment is inviting the public to participate in the deer management planning process. Throughout February and March, eight public open house meetings will be held across Michigan to discuss the draft statewide deer management plan. These meetings will be held 7 to 9 p.m. EST, with the exception of the Crystal Falls meeting, which will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. CST. "These open houses are to present the first draft of the Deer Management Plan to the public and to receive comments on the plan," said John Niewoonder, DNRE wildlife habitat biologist. "The citizen-based Deer Advisory Team, DNRE staff and others involved with the recommendations for this plan have worked diligently to create this document." Local staff will be available after the meeting for other deer questions; the open house portion will focus solely on the draft plan. The plan is available for review on the DNR Web site at http://www.michigan.gov/dnr/0,1607,7...153---,00.html. Public open house locations and dates are as follows: Tuesday Feb. 23, MDOT Southwest Regional Office, 1501 E.

  22. Most drivers drink Gatorade during the race, but are any of them sponsored by Gatorade?
  23. I have 30# on the 200 & 250, 50# on the 300 & 400. Mono would be good, if you had a reel the could hold enough backing.
