  1. I think it is a little early for here to have a good tournament. Not many salmon around this time of year there.
  2. This is the first time I have fished Presque Isle in about 7 years because of the alewife die off.Went on Sun. evening and managed to get 3 kings a 3 keeper lake trout. Picked up one king early on leadcore over 90 something fow and one laker in the same depth and also on leadcore. Then nothing for a couple hours and then all heck broke loose just as the sun set in 65 fow. Got the last four fish 3 on riggers and one on dipsy. Would get one in and another rod would go and get that in and another rod would and so on. Then as fast as it started they were done. None of the salmon had any bait in their belly but one laker had a small goby. And the kings were 23",25"and 27" and really skinny.
  3. Any new reports for here would like to go there tomorrow.
  4. Finned ball. I just don't like pinch pad releases. And I really like what I have. I just don't want anymore connections on the wire than I need.
  5. I use one of those lipstick looking walker release. I this going to be a problem?
  6. 2 times yesterday when I brought up the rigger with the depth raider probe on it the line was twisted up the cable and was not able to release the rod. The first time it had a salmon on and it happened to get into one of the other rigger lines and release that one and had to bring the fish in with rigger and the tangled line. And when I bring it to the surface the probe spins bad as soon as it clears the surface. I am using a walker release just above the ball. Should I have the release above the probe? Any other suggestions?
  7. sherman, thanks that was a lot of writing. I have the old style. Is the directions on their website for the lite bite the same as the old style?
  8. I had a slide diver given to me and I am not sure how I rig it and fish with it. I already have dipsy rods to put it on with 30# mono.
  9. How in the heck can you tell the difference between a splake and a laker.
  10. Se if you can get your hands on a traverse bay tackle steelie rod in the 9 foot or 8 and a half. And I would use the lightest line you feel comfortable with using. I use 6 pound when surf fishing with spawn.
  11. Well it looks like I might be coming up there soon. But that morning fishing isn't for me. I would rather try it in the late afternoon.
  12. Well I got one from cabelas and I am going to try it today.I got it for $154. It is the 6x6.I tried the ice anchors and I didn't think there were much of a problem. The only thing I would worry about them was when it got a little warm in the spring or just the sun on them. I think they might melt into the ice or out of it. We will just have to see. I needed the extra room.
  13. I don't care for the pull over kind they are to heavy to be pulling through the snow.
  14. I was wondering if any has used them? And how do they hold up to the wind since there is no floor?I am looking at the Cabelas,frabill,eskimo and the shappells.How do the ice anchors work? Do you need to take a drill with you on the ice?
  15. There is a gas station/party store in Lewiston that has bait. It I think call the in between. It is located right on the corner of the road that goes in between east and west twin lakes.
  16. Thanks guys, it was fun on the second day. But the sleeping in the boat was not to fun. Everything in the cuddy was all wet when we woke up from condensation and rain. I even had a window cracked.
  17. We got 7 Pinks at the Soo on Sun and Mon. The water was muddy on Sun. so the fish wouldn't bite only got 1 pink and a nice walleye casting.Then on Mon. afternoon the water was clearer and we got 6. All the fish were caught behind the power plant casting spoons.
  18. You are right about the big boats on the smaller lakes. I only know of 2 lakes in the Gaylord area that has a no wake law after 7:00pm.
  19. We are taking the boat. But we already have a reservation at one of the campgrounds.Those little Indians don't bother me.
  20. What kind of lures do you use at McCormick behind the divers. I fish there in the winter. Have only fished it once in the open water season and nevr caught a fish in the summer just the winter.
  21. Was wondering how the pink salmon fishing was going at the Soo. Going up there on Sun.I have heard it was good but wanted to know more info.
  22. The salmon sure has sucked at Charlevoix. We have not caught a salmon in 3 trips there.
  23. There is a tournament this Sat.Aug. 21 it only costs $25 to enter. Just be at the St. Ignace boat launch before the 6:00am start to sign up. It is for the March of Dimes. The prizes will be awarded by a raffle at the end of the tournament. Each boat gets a ticket when they pay and every legal fish gets a ticket.There is over $500 in prizes.
