  1. I would also say plasti-dip would work well, havent sprayed a ball with it, but i blacked out the emblems on my truck and it works great.
  2. It took me and my dad about a season and a half to hone our skill enough where we rarely get skunked, we dont put numberS in the boat like a lot of guys here but we are happy with 2 fish an outing. Although we usually run 4 rods, 2 riggers and 2 dipseys. We'll run and 8 color and a 2 color on boards when conditions are favorable. Just keep trying different things. When you find something that works stick with it. For some reason after we started using free sliders on our riggers we started hooking more fish. So that is something we do most times while running spoons. We dont run them if fishing plugs or paddles.
  3. Sorry for the thread jack What kind of spread do you run when its really late in the year? Do you just look for warmer water? Do you fish the beach? /threadjack
  4. Is anyone able to embed the video? Id love to see it but im at work and cant download the plug in required for the video on the computer here.
  5. I've been thinking the same thing this year. Did they increase the plants this year? or could it be the reduced stocking of kings?
  6. Does anyone know if they are still getting fish around the pierheads in Muskegon? Would like to go fishing tonight if the rain holds off and it's supposed to be pretty bumpy so I would like to stay in close.
  7. Crazy Senator wants to throw money away So this Senator wants to allow anyone to fish on holidays without buying a license, even out of state visitors. I think this is a VERY bad idea and would be a huge loss to our DNR budget. Fishing on holidays is very busy as it is and I'm sure it would get even busier, which is seconday concern to all the money lost. If anyone feels motivated im going to post the senators contact info and if you feel like it shoot her an email or give her a call and let her know if you oppose it. Hell contact her if you are for the bill too! To send an email to her you must visit her site and use the form on her webpage, there is no email given. http://senate.michigan.gov/gop/senators/contact.asp?District=20 Mailing Address: Senator Tonya Schuitmaker P.O.

  8. Well Ive saw more bait balls on the graph this year than in the last two years combined I think. I'm a believer if the fish stay this size or get bigger even at the expense of catching less fish per outing.
  9. So I don't know too much about the crash of salmon on Lake Huron but didnt they have awesome fishing with large fish a few years before the crash? Is anyone concerned that all these big fish being caught this year is just that? Do you think its just the fact of the reduced salmon plants by the DNR?
  10. I've been thinking the same thing. The boats are always right at the mouth of the channel, but I'm thinking the sand docks might be just as productive and I would feel a bit safer than sitting in front of the channel. Do you need to have a trolling motor or do people anchor there??
  11. Been listening to you on the radio the last few times out. Think I heard you Monday morning and night. Ill have to give you a shout. Boat doesnt have a handle so I'll just use Jose. We don't get out too often but were hoping to be out there Friday evening, and both Saturday AM and PM Monday We popped two fish both morning and night right as we were starting out then ran out after we got our fill of fighting fish and the crowd. The kings were all nice and healthy, all over 15 lbs, biggest being 20lbs
  12. Hey! I know two of your crew. Mike and Chad. I went to school with Chad and have done a bit of walleye fishing off the pier with him and Mike!
  13. Lampreys Hate Smell of Death I thought this was a pretty cool video showing the respose of lampreys when they are exposed to an essance of a dead lamprey.
  14. Thanks for the link Jon. When I was out on Friday morning someone thought they hooked their downrigger on it, but the picture of the bouy on that site doesnt sound like the same thing. He described it as an orange round bouy that was 2 feet under the surface. That was in 68 fow just for everyones information and to look out for...
  15. Well after doing some research I think I'm going to pull the trigger on some costas. Now I just gotta try and find an optical place that sells them and maybe i can get them under insurance!
  16. Ive really considered buying those new Jose's they have, since well, its my nickname and all. How do they fit? are they smaller? I havent seen them in the store and would just be buying them online.
  17. I got a nice pair of electric brand sunglasses. They are in the $70-100 range. Another pair ive had was Von Zipper in that same range. Never had a polarized lens in the Zippers but they are quality made.
  18. yea it could have been worse, we could have not gotten any hits. At least i had something tugging on my line!
  19. And I don't mean the waves. Went out with my dad and the neighbor went 1 for 6. They were bound and determined to let me catch a fish but I lost all 5 that we didn't boat. All the hits came on riggers between 70 and 85 fow. One of the fish I lost was a nice fish, ripped out a quick 400ft of line the came unbuttoned. Lost another at the back of the boat trying to steer him around. After the third lost fish I think they were just having fun with me. All I could do is shake my head. "that's why they call it fishing" haha
  20. I got bit by one on friday, damn near took my entire ankle off!
  21. We were out of Muskegon on the eve of the 14th and you were right about the flies. Our boat was filled with them!!! Luckily they were not biting. We went 2 for 2 with a lake trout and a king around 110fow straight out
  22. Headed up to Drummond Sunday morning to slay the perch. If suckers were open to fishing up there it would be a massacre. They all stack up at the dam down stream from first lake. There are so many there this time of year you could walk across the river without getting wet!
  23. I just thought thats how the board worked when it released. My Z boards "helicopter" the whole way in after it trips 30 seconds after being set...hahah
  24. hmm, well I would also like my board to release. Do the churches release? With the z boards I already have I could scavange the or-16 off of it, since im not crazy about them...
  25. Did you buy new releases for your offshores?
