    Fish attractants

    So do you think herring is better than alewife? And if straight herring oil would be better than procure that has more in it like amino acids and bite stimulants? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    Fish attractants

    What scent/attractant do you guys like? Herring or alewife? Or something different. And what brand. This would be to put on spoons or to enhance meat rigs using big weenie brand artificial herring strips. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    Do you catch fish close to your boat?

    How do I get some freshwater anodes to put on my spoons for salmon? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    Do you catch fish close to your boat?

    I forgot to say. It just started happening the last couple years. Maybe it's just me. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    Do you catch fish close to your boat?

    I think my boat is repelling fish. It's an i/o. Starcraft islander. How could you help with my boat. It's not in the water this year. But probably will be next. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  6. I have a 1995 22ft starcraft islander I/O now. I'm think of going to a 2000 bayliner trophy 2002 120hp outboard. What should I be looking for when I go and look at it? So I'm not buying trouble. Does the trophy ride well? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    Detour

    There are 2 launches in Detour. One west of town and one in town. You would fish for salmon to the south out by the lighthouse. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    Meat rigs

    I'm 3hrs from manistee. I use to net them with smelt nets in lake charlevoix when they came in to spawn. But haven't seen them in more than 15 years. Right now if wanted any kind of bait for meat rigs I would have to order online. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    Meat rigs

    I have never seen them up here in the north. The water never turns over. I'm 2 hours from Frankfort. And that would be the closest I think I could find them. But with no connections for when the alewives are in its pointless for me to drive that far just to check. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    Salmon and trout stocking.

    I talked to a for biologist the other day about the Cisco's. He said they haven't planted any yet. But it is in the works. They already have them at the Jordan river hatchery and the tribe has some. So all the Cisco's now in grand traverse bay all the way to and including little traverse bay are all natural fish.
  12. These are photos I took out of Michigan out door news. The dnr says they want long salmon to stay because they are the ones that keep the alewife in check. But they are still planting over 1,000,000 lake trout as a "secondary fishery". That's bull. They need to plant less lake trout. Plus the article said they won't be planting as many king salmon in the northern part of the lake where I fish because they are having better natural reproduction than in the south. And that bull. I caught 4 salmon all summer out of charlevoix. But you could fill your cooler with lake trout. I hate lake trout. Plus we are catching Cisco with stomachs full of alewives.

  13. It's not good for the lake or Michigan's economy. I just won't be fishing lake Michigan anymore for kings unless they come back. Why would I,when I can go to lake huron and possibly catch 5 or more species of fish in a single outing. Might not catch very many but more than lake Michigan Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  14. But michigan is taking more Lakers to plant. Which is stupid. No one wants them. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    2017 Buyers Guide

    Must be nice to have such good fishing on the Wisconsin side of the lake. I think I'm selling my salmon boat because it was so bad salmon fishing on the Michigan side where I fish. To many dang lake trout. And our dnr isn't going to cut back on laker plants but cut more salmon again this year. I actually caught more kings on Lake Huron last year than on Lake Michigan.

  16. Stay off northern michgan lakes. They are not safe. There were fatalities this weekend and another was rescued out of a Crawford County lake. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1409782092368303&id=112747762071749 Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  19. I was just wondering if wellcraft boats are good boats. Just asking because I found one for really cheap and thought maybe they had problems with them. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    Anybody know about Well crafted boats

    Who would I get to check the stringers? I know nothing about fiberglass boats. I probably won't get it anyway. Was also thinking of going to a little bit smaller boat than the islander so it would be a walleye and salmon boat. But the only used ones that I can find that are 19-20ft are lunds.

    Anybody know about Well crafted boats

    I'm wanting to get a boat that has an outboard. Because it's getting to hard to do all the maintenance on an i/o. Plus I can use an outboard more since it doesn't really need much done to winterize it. I will be selling my 1995 221 Startcraft Islanders cuddy. It's in great shape. Engine runs great and has been tuned up by a mechanic every few years. But the winterizing and oil changes I did myself every year for the last 11 years since I've had the boat.

    Torch lake chains

    Stay away from the sandbar if you will have kids with you. Lots of boats. The lake is really busy on the weekends. There should be bass up the calm river into clam lake. Skegamog has walleye and perch plus musky. Elk lake has Lakers. And all should have smallmouths. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
