  1. I see that a lot of people are using spro power swivels for there line to line connections. I found these the other day and think they maybe even better. There are stainless, smaller, cheaper, and heavier rating. Sounds like a win, win to me. http://www.luremaking.com/catalogue/catalogue-index/catalogue-items/swivels/stainless_super_swivels_.htm Size 14-78lb breaking strength. What are your thoughts.
  2. I have a couple convector 45's with ten colors of lead on them. Thinking about switching 1 over to a 300' copper. If I do how much backer can I get on the reel. I currently have 300 yards of 40lb power pro. Haven't decided whether to go 45 or 32#. I see the BRC 45# has a diameter of 0.033 and the 32 is 0.030. Should I be able to straight up switch them out with my 27# LC, it should have a dia of around 0.032?
  3. Need some advice on what baits I should run for early browns and atlantics. Also where should I start, shallow?
  4. If any of you are on Facebook please go to Michigan Out of Doors page and vote for my son and I's video entry. It is Alex and Keith Wilson Turkey hunt. Voting ends today. Thanks
  5. Anyone fishing the Lake Charlevoix Area Trout Tournament? Below is a link to the tournament page. http://www.fishcharlevoix.com/
  6. Thanks guys we had a lot of fun. He is quite the outdoorsman already. I want to get a GoPro camera for the boat. I think that would be cool.
  7. Schuette, Stokes announce felony charges against Arkansas Asian carp salesman Investigation by DNR revealed illegal sales of live Asian carp from semi-truck in Midland http://www.michigan.gov/dnr/0,4570,7-153--279769--,00.html
  8. Do you know if they carry the TD and $ on it if they do. Thanks
  9. My 8 year old son shot his first turkey this spring with a crossbow. He made a great shot and it didn't go anywhere; 2 steps and dead. We got it all on video; it will be great to look back 20-30 years from now and watch. It was 19 lbs, had a 7-1/8" Beard, and 3/4" Spurs below is a link to the video. There is some pictures at the end. http://youtu.be/y8wgMWuReRk
  10. I have a Uniden Oceanus DSC Submersible radio. I turned it on the other night and noticed that when I adjusted the squelch down and didn't get any static. So I tried to pick up the weather and nothing. The radio beeps when I change channels and when I turn it on so I don't believe it is the speaker. How do I check the antenna to see if it is ok? And what else can I check.
  11. Nice they may not pull as hard, but are way better eating IMO.
  12. I have a new lakemaster chip Promaps V3 for my lowrance units. I have a 5500C global maps unit and a LCX20. It works in both units and they are about the same vintage. Make sure you are up to date on your software. Note that the chip will probably not show up in your maps list. It will just start reading it. In my opionion they are the best maps out there. The detail is awsome To bad Johnson outdoors bought them and made their maps exclusive to HB:mad:. Below is a link to the down loads for your unit. http://www.lowrance.com/Products/Marine/Large-Screen-SonarGPS-Chartplotter-Combos/LCX-27C/Downloads/
  13. Recommondations for reel sizes? For 300 and 250. I was thinking a convector 55. Does it need to be a level wind 55L or will a straight 55 work.
  14. What kind of depths with those lengths in 45lb copper. Also do you need a roller rod for copper?
  15. I currently have 2 riggers, 2 diver rods, 4 LC set ups. 2-10 color rods, 1-7 color, 1-3 color. I have been debating on adding some new rods to my spread and have a few questions. So lets start with the basics. 1 is wire rod only used for divers? 2. What is the advantace of copper over LC.
  16. The powder coat should hold up good. If interested I the contact info for a company out of Grand Rapids that does nice work for a reasonable price. I would also recommend that you use a PC that meets outdoor weatherabilty requirements. I have more info on that. They are currently coating aluminum stuff for our company that has to meet 5 years of exposure.
  17. The cone angles for humminbirds are reversed from what Lowrance are. 200 kHz/83kHz 20°/60°. So it depends on what graph you have and what you are doing. Some graphs have dual beam tech where they run both frequencies at the same time. http://www.humminbird.com/leading_innovation/humminbird-sonar/dualbeam-plus.aspx
  18. The 50 kHz frequency is not the the narrow beem. It is broken down as follows 50/200kHz, 35°/12°. You will get better detail with the 200 kHz. It has alot to do with the frequence. Low frequences travel further than high frequence but do not give you the detail. But you should mark mork fish with 50 khz. As far as the 83/200 it is 120°/20° so the 83 hKz setting is for shallow water. If you go the lowrance website they recommend the 50/200 transducer for the Great Lakes. http://www.lowrance.com/Products/Marine/HDS-Gen2/HDS-10-Gen2/ Makes sense why you found the 200 kHz setting to be better for you. The 50 hkz would probably work even better.
  19. With lowrance units for fishing the big lake you want a HST-DFSBL 50/200kHz, 35°/12° Skimmer Transducer. The 50kHz has a wider cone angle so you will pick up more fish plus that is the frequency lowrance recommends using for deep water. I currently have a single frequency ducer on my boat 200 kHz. I went jigging lakers the other day in 175' of water I had the ping speed maxed out and the sensitivity above 95% to get decent mark on 20-24" fish. But I could also mark my jig falling all the way to the fish.
  20. I have 10' ugly stiks bwd diver rods. Was thinking about doing soming like a 7' rod on the inside.
  21. I am currently running a 10' dipsy rod off each side of the boat. And was thinking about adding a low diver rod on the inside. What would you recommend. Also how far apart should I run them as far as depth to keep tangles to a min.
  22. Try a number 9 or 11 Swedish pimple. They work good as well. We caught some lakers the other day on them. If you find some jigs PM me I would like some to try.
