  1. Where can I get whole frozen herring for meat rigs? Gltsupplies has them but are pricey. I'm looking for blue label. I want to cut my own. It's a lot cheaper than pre cut strips. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    Dipsey braid?

    That only works if the reels are the same. So where do I put the powerpro numbers and the backing numbers. Or doesn't it matter. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    Dipsey braid?

    Thanks. I didn't look all the way down the page. I already have mono on my reels and need to figure out how much to leave on. I think I'm going to have to take it all off first. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    Dipsey braid?

    All I have is 2 dipsies. There is mono on the reels right now. But it needs changed so I was going to put braid on them. But I cant find the website for calculating how much backing I would need. I would like to leave the mono on that's on them. Just don't know how much to take off. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    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
  17. 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.
  23. 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.

  24. 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
  25. 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
