  1. I went with convectors as I was losing gear with the magda's. At least on the divers anyway they didn't seem to have a smooth enough drag when a screamer hit. Should be OK on a rigger but I would run a bit of a loose drag. I have lost far less gear and fish since changing to convectors and having the drag upgraded to dragmasters. IMO in the long run it doesn't cost any more if it saves 1 diver, spinnie, and meat rig.
  2. Have him contact me if he is interested in 1 electric rigger in good working order plus I may have other stuff he may be interested in all very cheap. I live almost straight south of zeeland i'll email also
  3. I have found that Lakeshore Outfitters (Saugatuck exit) and The Outdoorsman Pro Shop in Jenisen are good people and will be a big help. Neither will just sell you stuff for the sale and they are in touch with whats working. PS Lakeshore outfitters now goes by Lakeshore Firearm and Tackle
  4. I agree with 1000' but if you have an extra large reel you may want to use backing to fill the reel. That way your counters will be more accurate and you will reel in more line per crank. so it depends on what reel you are using. The rods and settings should be fine (always need great care when using 2 per side) but some guys use a smaller dipsey for the High diver and some like the larger so that it pulls it farther out. You will need to find a system that works best for you. Too close and you risk tangling the high and low and the farther out you go you need to send the planers way out or you come up underneath the inside one. I kind of like the larger on both but with the smaller weight on the high diver. Also if you're pulling spinnies you may want to forget running 2 per side in rough seas or tough currents and save yourself some headache.

  13. port sheldon -docks coming out Had 3 docks in when I left this morning and only 1 when I got back, also looked like they were pulling in the buoy. Did manage a nice steely and a small king by the bubbler and was really glad to get out again on what turned out to be a really nice day on the lake.

  17. I always get of it either when cleaning it or I put it in a tinfoil boat on the grill skin down with some butter and when its ready I slide a long spatula between the skin/fat and the meat. It usually glides right off. The rest of the grey flakes off easily. I've heard of the crispy skin also but I don't want the grey fat layer.
  18. As far as a run in Holland the King numbers that were great a week ago are down a lot now (in the lake) so I don't know if a bunch already ran of if they are heading to another port to run. As far as bait we marked bait in big numbers lately S of Holland. There are still a few nice fish to be had yet and Trout fishing is incredible for anyone interested. However we did find our beer thief yesterday
  19. I've had some trouble with BW hooks also losing too many of the bigger fish including bent hooks.
