  1. I went up to Pinconning and got a pair of Daiwa LC27's and 7' Heartland Downrigger Rods, I've had them out a dozen times now and seen a bit of acton. I am very happy with my set up. I also picked up the Hummingbird Fishing Buddy 130 for my small boat and it works great too. Thanks for the tips!
  2. Wow, that's a lot lower priced than what Ive been looking at, for a reel. I had been considering a line counter but hadn't seen anything in this price range. Thanks. I think I will give the Magna 15DX a try, you've never had any problem with the line pick up ratio of 5.5:1? I was leaning to faster models.
  3. I haven't been out boat fishing for a number of years, I just got a 12' jon boat and want to take up some inland lake trolling for pike, walleye and the like. Any suggestions as to rod and reel combos that might be good choices? I was thinking of baitcasting reel and medium action 6-6 poll. Like to tow the lures with inline boards. Looking at Daiwa® Exceler® Baitcast Combo at http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/index/index-display.jsp?id=cat20285&navAction=jump&navCount=1&cmCat=MainCatcat20166&parentType=category&parentId=cat20166 Any opinion on two piece poles? There's not a lot of room in a 12 for tackle and I'm worried about busting up one piece poles.
  4. Thanks, I am looking forward to getting out after a long cold winter. Spring is my time. I'll just take it easy. I think I'm pretty much ready for anything and with temps expected to near 80 it should be a great place to be...sure hope the fish think so too.
  5. I haven't been out fishing for almost ten years. I bought a small boat this spring and am thinking about heading down to the Center Road Launch Saturday morning, Tittabawassee River. I have heard the launches will be crowded. While I am eager to get out there I am a little aprehensive about what to expect regarding getting the 12 boat in and out by myself. Anybody know how bad a guy could expect the crowds to be? How long I might expect to wait to get the boat in the water? And would it do any good to get there at 5am? Or doesent the time matter on a day like the opener? Will the fishing it's self be any worse say on Monday when the pressure should be less?
