  1. I got a new graph last year and I think that we are not catching as many fish as we did before we got the new one.It just seams that i get a report on where to catch salmon and we go there mark all kinds of fish and don't get bit maybe 1 or 2 hits all afternoon. I know there are other boats catching fish in the same area.What is a good way to test this?Without shutting off the graph.
  2. Sounds like one heck of a time. Maybe that will happen to me tonight. But I won't hold my breath.
  3. Bob fished with me on Sun. Evening. And we only managed 1 about 8#.
  4. Well he lives in Cadillac,MI that might be to far for him to come get it.
  5. I have a friend that would like to trade his 1997 15 hp for a 9.9 hp short shaft.As long as it is close to the same year.He lives in Cadillac,MI
  6. To all of you guys that think every launch was a pay launch is wrong. I fish at a bunch of different lakes that have no money collection tube. So that makes them free. I don't mind paying to launch but if you want to get a launch sticker now for the ones that were free then you still need a state park sticker to get into the state parks to launch.
  7. Yes the $10 is fine. But this stuff with just now starting to charge at launches that were free before this weekend is a crock.
  8. I am sorry but I think you are wrong about always having to have a sticker in the past. You show me a document that states that i needed to have a sticker to launch my boat at the Dutchman Bay launch in the past or any lake for that matter that is a free launch with (no money collection tube on site).I can name off a lot of lakes that have no collection tube.And Dutchman bay never had one until this weekend, because i was there last Sun.Now at East Jordan you have to pay when when last week you didn't have to.I am just ticked that we now have to pay to launch our boats at launches that were free in the past.I know there were some that were pay launches that the DNRE maintained,like Higgins.
  9. I have been fishing there for years and never saw a sign until yesterday.It is a new sign right where we always get the boat ready.I never saw the can where you put your money in either, until yesterday.The same thing with Ironton's launch.
  10. Well the only launches around Gaylord or East Jordan for that matter that you had to pay was the State Parks or the city launches.There was no signs that stated that you needed a launch permit. Now you have to have one for even the small lakes.Take Dutchmans bay launch. You never had to pay to use that launch and now you have to pay $6 to launch.Or the ironton Launch you didn't have to pay.
  11. Glad we didn't come up Sun.We ended up up getting 20 miles from home and had a bearing buddy come off so we just went back home.
  12. Well most of the dnr public launches up here in northern Michigan that are not city launches or state park launches you were not required to pay. And now you have to have a launch permit. But if you want to go to a state park you have to buy another sticker.Our state DNRE sucks.I guess they are just trying to get us to fish only certain places. Because most people can't afford to buy both.
  13. I just heard that the DNRE is starting to charge $6 to launch at most of their free launches. That's not good. when these were free to launch and now we will be charged. You can buy a season pass for $24 but you still have to have a separate sticker to get into a state park or vise versa.
  14. Nice mess of fish maybe see you up there today. Not sure yet. I have to see what the crew wants to do.
  15. Well i got a leadcore set up today. I got a fullcore. Shakespeare Arsenal reel and a med.action blue diamond downrigger rod(I think),it is in the barn right now.Thanks for all of the advice but I had to buy what I could afford.I just hope the rod is not to lite.
  16. So now that i am interested what pound test of leadcore should I get?
  17. Well I rarely go any faster than 2.5mph. I am just not sure I want to have 100 yards of line behind the boat if I were to go with full core.Does leadcore catch that many fish that I am missing out if I don't get some?
  18. Thanks guys. Will full cores give me about 50 ft. depth?
  19. Now is Lowrance going to have to pay royalties on their side imaging.
  20. So if I went with half cores. What kind of depth can I expect?
  21. So it sounds like I need to decide on how much core I want to run.
