  1. Checking it out now......very nice except for the part that says W 20 kts friday!!
  2. We've got 2 buoys in Muskegon Lake that are in my path to the channel.....I have them marked on my GPS and know where they are at as a result. Always a good idea to have any known hazards marked on the GPS in case of low vis or heading in or out when dark.
  3. Killer pic with the boy and the steel! I'm sure that one was probably in the air coming off a rigger. I'll be out on Sunday - we need to get into them like you did as we have had minimal action so far - but it does sound like the salmon are finally here in decent numbers. Sounds like you had plenty of action for starting late......we need to get into them during low light mode as I've only had one on what I would consider "early" which we lost at the net.
  4. We had a 10# coho that was 28-29" that was just a fat hog last weekend. Yours looks like his bigger brother. I just had it on the smoker last night and it looked great. I'm getting the fishing jones and need to get back out there - probably Sun AM as Sat AM weather is looking iffy. In today's mail I'm getting 2 new AceHi Green glow splatterbacks from Lake MI Angler which will be getting wet next time out. FYI cohos loose their scales pretty easy and also the steel have spots all over their tails - cohos only a few on top of the tail.
  5. Dispies definatley take lots of abuse and require solid holders.
  6. FYI - 31" is a master angler Coho.......I think that was 31" or more. No more weight requirement - only length. Yrs ago we got a 17 lb coho and cut it up having no idea about master angler size (was 12# then). Then I got a 12.25# one next trip. We also broke off a big master angler ho that someone else picked up along with our green scaley J plug. Sounds like lots of potential to get master angler kings (39") and hos out there this year.
  7. Over the years I was breaking off 30 lb stock fly leaders then i went to 50 lb ande mono or 50 lb fluoro for my dispy leads. The lightest I run elsewhere is 25 lb fluoro leads on my core rigs (as the core is 27 and backing is 30 superline or 30 mono) so if something breaks it will be the leader. With the big ones out there we will find out where our weakest links are......
  8. Ahhh so you had the "puker"......we went 2-2 also with 10 lb fat coho and a steel that was in the 9 lb range. Unfortunately Sunday was a 0-4 with a 5 color screamer breakoff (knot from core to leader failed - 25 lb fluoro) with a green splatterback Ace Hi on it. Bad start to the day and all shakes or knockoffs after that. First and hopefully last skunk this year.
  9. Trav - get a hold of Bill at Shoreline Service (Muskegon) as he is one of hte original Cannon Service Centers......he will have parts and will make sure if there is some other problem that is causing the cracked clutch pads that it is taken care of. 231 759 8352 It will be best if you can bring the rigger to him. He is at the corner of Lakeshore Drive and McCracken in Muskegon. Building looks like an old gas station and is a plain looking building. Bill will take care of you.
  10. Oh, by the way we were up on the Betsie over the holiday and there were quite a few fish in the river up by US31. Had someone comment that there were fish at the dam, throughout the system and in Betsie Bay at that time.
  11. We fished Mkg Sunday and there were fish in the arms, channel, outside and in Mkg Lake and there were several caught. Water was 52 surface and downright cold down 20 just outside of the mud. At times even in the arms the down temp was cold. We ended 1-3 loosing one at the net and another in mid fight spit the hooks. The one we boxed was a dark hen with white meat......she was past ready. We were 1-2 with our first pass in the breakwater before 7:30 and could only manage one more hit after that. We made a pass outside early in the dark with nothing to show and then went into the breakwater and basically stayed there and in the channel until we quit at 10:30 or so. Another note most all of the charters were right in there with us all morning. From what I have heard Sunday was the first real sign of a fair amount of fish showing up. Not sure what the S wind will do but at some point the mature ones have got to get moving and get upstream before its too late.
  12. You lost one - I just got a new one! I've been shifted from using the original flounder pounder that I got when the moonshines first came out and have been using mongolian beef and dancing anchovy alot. I was at Mik Lurch in Hammond IN this week and they are going out of business and had some Moonshines - I should have got some of the others, however I was not looking to get more spoons when I was there. I'm in need of a 14# ball for my probe rigger along with some more coated cable as my Cannon SNT probe likes to blow back alot when below 50 down. So if you are in the area go to Mik Lurch in Hammond - north of Cabelas on Indy Blvd on east side of road. They have J plugs, spoons, and various other stuff, but it is picked over.
  13. yrs ago we got a steelie on a full core that was hooked so that he came in with a wide open mouth. No fight, and he was basically drowned by the time we got him in. It was odd, but it is possible to drown a fish......
  14. FYI Coho will not have very many spots on the tail - only a few near the top edge. Steel will have lots of spots on the tail. Also note that coho scales usually come off quite a bit once they are boated. Either way nice fish!!
