  1. Allen, Is there any way you could post the chart or direct me to where I could find one. My X4, did not come with a chart and I have been curious what are the best temps for walleye, steelhead and salmon would be.
  2. The reel fill calculator at the top of the page ( sticky ) is a handy tool. Takes the guess work out when spooling something new on your reel.
  3. Has anyone ever tried a Kahl hook? Looks like a semi circle hook. To me it looks like once the fish is hooked up It would have a hard time spitting it out. I'm not sure if they make them with a big enough ring to swing freely on the split ring though.
  4. Thanks for the replys, No way can i figure out how a steelhead could smack a treble and still get off. I'll have to look for some premium sharp hooks.
  5. Thinking about swapping out the treble hooks to single hooks on some spoons. I'm trying to get a better hook up rate especially for steelhead. What style and size do you guys use.
  6. I have a textured floor on my wellcraft and when It starts to look bad I get out the 3500 PSI power washer. Blasts about 95% of the crud off. For the stained spots I spray it down with black streak remover (meant for RV use). My first thought about putting a wax on is It's going to be slippery.
  7. I think the second is an improved Albright
  8. Sounds like I'm on the right track adding the probe. Thanks for all the replies.
  9. Considering adding a Fish Hawk X4, temperature speed probe for next year. How Important to your set up do you rate the probe.
  10. I get Spring fall and winter out of my Arctic Armor suit, plus it has some flotation built In. Cabelas MTO 50 works well in the summer.
  11. Went out of Erieau Tuesday the seventh on a 220 heading for 18 miles, 70 FOW. Went 12 for 15 on the bows and picked up as many walleye as well.
  12. Thanks for the replies. Like many have said I'll just have to work at It, till I get the hang of It. I should have Known It's not a one size fits all set up when your pulling different baits, Obvious now. Everyone that posts about the Chamberlain releases sounds positive about them, I'll keep them In mind If I have too much trouble with the Blacks. Thanks again and good fishing.
  13. How do you guys set the amount of tension on your releases and divers. I'm sure most of you fish enough to tell when you have the right tension by feel, but I don't fish for salmon enough to be able to do that. I've thought of using an electronic fish scale and set them to pop at a certain weight but I'm not sure how much is the right amount. Any guidelines that you use?
  14. Heading up this week to ludington, Anyone have a fishing report. Thanks
  15. I haven't used them yet. I'm on the east side of the state. Don't get to fish salmon nearly as much as I'd like to. Two things that might be a problem are, they might need roller tips. Torpedo tips are what I would look at If they need to be upgraded and they are rated at 20 to 50 LB test and 7' long so the rod isn't going to be much of a shock absorber fighting fish. Hope that helps.
