  1. 1 for 1 out of Muskegon from 6-8:30pm. Set up in 120', went out to 185', headed back east and picked up an 11# King in 170' on a full core with a Blue Dolphin spoon. That was the only action for me. Third time out this year and the boat has been running great, until last night. Cruising back in about 26-27 mph and everything was fine until the boat just plain died right out in front of the Muskegon pier heads in 50 fow. Two other boats responded to my call for help on the radio and one boat with a father and son team out for a shakedown cruise came out and towed me back in to my marina. Thanks Ryan and son! You guys saved the night for me. Great to see fisherman and boaters helping each other out. Talked to my mechanic this morning and obviously, until he looks at her, he's not sure what it is, but, thinks it could be the ignition module gone bad. Boat turns over but just will not ignite. Mercruiser 3.0 i/O, by the way.

    Good job on the fish. I presume this post should read May 24th...?
  3. Good job on the fish. With all the wind lately, I'm itching to get out this weekend. And, I think I need the name of your photographer as he (or she) made that 12# King look like a 20 pounder. At least to me, it looks bigger than 12 pounds in the picture.
  4. Good job on the fish. And, not to create a controversy or be a PITA, but, is it legal to net a fish like you did that was just swimming on the surface? I had an opportunity to do that once with a good sized steelhead, but passed on it as I wasn't sure of the legality of it. Maybe someone can chime in on it that knows the rule. I really couldn't find anything in the Michigan regulations, but, for some reason, I thought you couldn't do it.

  6. Great looking Trophy. I have a Trophy 1952WA and love it. Not trying to be a smart alec or stir anything up, just asking the question...why do you have the 2 boats? I almost just did the same thing but didn't pull the trigger on a 14' Sea Nymph with a 9.9 Mercury OB and a electric trolling motor and trailer and a cover. Great shape, and a fair price. Just wasn't sure I could justify having the 2 boats. Wasn't sure I would get the use out of the "little boat". Just curious. Thanks.

    How far down and how far back were you running your J-plug when you picked up that king by the sub? Thanks.
  8. Good job and thanks for the Muskegon report.

    Glad you found a couple and thanks for the Muskegon report.
  10. Anyone make it out of Muskegon Friday night or Saturday morning and have anything to report? Thinking of going out later today if the wind cooperates. Thanks.

    Muskegon report...?

    Thank you for the replies. My son and I managed to make it out last night and avoided the white striped kitty by going 1 for 1. Landed a 7# male king in 86' on a Shelly Snack glow spoon 55' down on the rigger. Marked quite a few fish between 80-120, but that was the only one that liked what we had to offer. Seemed like some guys were picking them up here and there on the radio.
  12. Anyone make it out of Muskegon last night or this morning and are willing to share any info? Friday night and Saturday morning looks to be a bit bumpy and rainy and I'm going to try to get out tonight. Haven't been out of Muskegon in over two weeks. Thanks for any info.
  13. Just wondering if there is an update to this post and if the unmarked net was found and removed. Plan to fish Muskegon this weekend. Thanks.
