CaptLevi's Achievements



  1. Went to Muskegon office on the 21st for my TWIC appointment. I found it quite short and painless. I still can't say that I agree on the necessity of charters to be required to obtain this though. It is to enable us to enter certain restricted zones? I asked if this would get me to the discharge at the Cook and was told no way. So just what restricted waters and areas am I going to enter that the recreational boater won't be allowed in?
  2. So what does the session involve? Fingerprint? Background check? Polygraph? Putting my hand over my heart and reciting the "Pledge of Allegiance"? What else? Should I bring my own lube or do they supply it??:eek:
  3. If I could only use one Brand name it would be Stinger...HANDS DOWN.
  4. The Insurance Shop sells charter policies through Freemont Ins. Co. It's a good policy at a fair price. Freemont seems to really care about taking care of their policy holders. Just based on my own previous experience when trying to file a claim, I would opt for an agent closer to home that sells Freemont policies. Any that do can offer the same policy you would recieve anywhere else. Giving business to an agent in your own area doesn't hurt your business if you are promoting yourself to the locals. Also dealing with an agent you know, they may be more likely to do all it takes when bad things happen to help promote their business in the community as well.
  5. I'm with Capt. Bill on this. This termination is simple and it really works well. I used to use crimps too, but feel that it may in fact put a weak link in my line.
  6. Our largest King was 24.4 lbs and took the top pro spot in the SWMSH contest for 2007. Not bad for St. Joe! We also took the top Laker spot. Maybe another trophy too, I don't keep track too much and haven't made arrangments to pick up the trophies yet. We had a skam that tipped the scales at 20 lb. even but the customer was in a hurry, it was late, and we couldn't find a certified scale to get it officially weighed.
  7. There was a 12 lb. walleye weighed in at Broadlows that was caught on Wednesday. Awesome bonus!
  8. I know that we enjoyed some real fine catches of perch on our charters last season. Inquiries for perch trips are increasing, and with the gas prices I may have to push perchin trips a little harder this year. Plus the kids have a Blast when we're on a good school.
