  1. My numbers were way down this year, I blame my lack of fishing, but maybe not. Didn't get out much at all. On the fin clip, do any other stockings get in the lake from other states where they do not fin clip 100% of the fish?? Are all non-clipped fish really natural reproduction??
  2. Sounds like you have a good 6 rod system working!
  3. Great Boat Ken, it has served us well in putting some BIG fish in the box. Know it will make the new owner happy!
  4. Just a quick report. 8 for 12 yesterday straight out and south. South troll, 135fow-140, fished top to 95 feet down, hot rig was 225 copper with double orange crush, and DR down 55 with killer tangerine stingray size. LOST my handheld VHF radio if anyone finds it please let me know, it should flash in low light. Big fish 19.8 kin, 4 kings and 4 steelies.
  5. Went straight out to 90fow and set lines at 6:15am. Had two 10lb kings right away, 1st on 225cu with meat, 2nd on braid dipsy out 160 with green crinkle fly and green SD. Trolled for an hour and a half to pick up a third king on DR set at 60 with meat rig attached. Best troll was SW, best water was 105-110. Marked some good fish out there. Was happy going 3-3 with two 6 yr year old kids cranking in the kings, yes my son brought in the 225cu on his own. Proud Dad!!
  6. Set lines at 7:15am in 70 flow north of pier. Had a 8lb king on DR in 5 min set at 31down w/ blue Dolphin stinger spoon. Set rest of lines out and we picked up 4 more at 80fow between 60-31' down. 225 cu line with silver streak pink/yellow w/ black dots was our best rig taking 2 17lb fish. All spoons. Divers were dead for us.Ended 5 for 5, all kings, pulled lines at 11:00.
  7. Nice job mike, thanks for the report as always!
  8. Great buck, good day in the woods.
  9. D & R Sports Kalamazoo, and Gander Mtn Portage. Both stores have a limited selection, I find more at D & R usually.
  10. South havens been kinda slow, Holland has the big red classic so you will be fishing around a ton of boats. So that Muskegon as your best bet in my opinion.
  11. I used the 3x rule, but on the 11" I agree with Ben 47". Saw some charter boats running long leads and I went from there.
  12. Great mark, I totally understand! My best trip ever was last august with my 4 yr old fishing buddy. I was so proud I took a picture of him holding a fish the same size as he was and blew it up into a poster and framed it for his room.
  13. Yup, your hooked. That's how the sickness takes hold. Good job!
  14. Congrats mark. Now we see why you needed that bigger boat.
  15. Any pictures matt? Is the boat in Holland?
  16. Left the launch at 4:00pm, ran out to 155FOW and started working in to 135, picked up 2 nice coho on carmel dolphine spoon, on rigger 40down and 25down, trolled into 100fow and hit another coho on NBK spoon on dipsy set on 2, 100 out, then other dipsy rips wth siggs rig fly and SD, pull in a 18 pound king that was crazy at the back of the boat, one more coho on a carmel and yellow spoon on a 3 color. Ended 5 for 5, nice night and a good shakedown, fish on!
  17. Heading to St Joe or SH tonight for a shakedown, anyone find fish this morning? Can't wait to get out there again!!! Thanks
  18. Nice mark, your little buddy is getting big.
