  1. Looking to find some 7.6 1100 BWD Ugly Sticks. Having a heck of a time finding them. Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Grizzly
  2. Seeing as Wire was just added to my spread over the last summer i ran into a situation where i was only landing about a 3rd of my hookups. The fish were coming off right off the bat and the drags were not set loose enough. Well after messing around for awhile and constantly tightening the drags i finally found some old releases in the boat. I wired them up to the real seat and took the pinch pads and placed them on the wire just in front of the reel. Loosened the drags and my percentages went up to about 75 percent. It made a big difference for me. I have Okuma convector 45's and granted they are not probably the best reel for this application but they get the job done. I am running wire on both sides of the boat now and really like feeling everything the fish does when fighting them. I have one roller rod and one converted 10.5 ft ugly stick with a twilli tip and it works out great. Grizzly.
  3. The unit has sold. Thanks Grizzly
  4. Awesome post. Grizzly
  5. OK, Price reduced to 225.00 plus shipping. Unit has all hardware and cabling to put the 4000 receiver anywhere on your boat. Grizzly 989 615 1665
  6. I have a 3500C Lowrance Global Map with a 4000 Lowrance Antenna to go with it. It works perfect. I won a HDS 7 and no longer have use for this. I am asking 275.00 for everything plus shipping. Grizzly. Phone: 989 615 1665
  7. Last year i added a Okuma 10.5 Tournament Series to my spread. It's a sweet setup. Last night i just put a twillitip on one of my 10.5 ft Ugly Sticks. Put a Convector 45D with 1000 ft of 7 strand torpedo wire as its all i could find locally. Also added a slide diver rod into the mix as the charter i was on last weekend ran 2 of them high and back 225 to 300 these took alot of hits for us with lemon ice on both of them. So good luck with your entry into the world of wire. Flat out wire catches fish and your gonna love feeling everything that fish does. I will post my results with my modified Ugly Stick setup. Grizzl
  8. We just had a great Sunday am. It all came together as we found the fish down 70 to 80 over 90 fow. We missed the break as i don't have speed n temp at the ball yet. The big fish came from the bath house area. But the boat traffic and craziness told me it was not worth it and we went west and found some fish. It was nice as there were only 4 other boats near us. Hope to see you and Ted up the Tommy Brian
  9. Well we made it over friday 8/9 fished the evening. Went 1 for 2 lost the first one then we hooked into a toad. Tony my partner landed a 32.54lber that was 44 inches long. We weighed it on a handscale that was darn accurate as when we had it certified yesterday at Captain Chucks it still weighed 32.60 i figure it had to loose a bit of weight sitting on ice for a day and a half. That fish hit a 150 copper with a just glowed up green jeans smaller spoon. Saturday we boated 4 for 6 nothing big but found fish away from the pack doing our own thing. Sunday am we limited out 9 kings and 1 steelie back to port by 9:00 am. The weather was perfect and fishing was good. Most of our fish were in 90 to 80 fow water tight to the bottom. Best rig was a blue spin doctor with a riverside fly. Best spoons were green jeans and flounder pounder. Also UV green gator and Uv Mixed Veg. Grizzly
  10. Nice Kings and thanks for the report. Grizzly
  11. I am happy to say that the new wire rig really worked well except we never had a rip on it. Oh well. But that bugger gets down deep. I had it back 210 with a magnum ring and it was hitting the bottom in 100 fow. Quickly pulled and removed the zebra muscles and reset. Thanks to everyone who helped me out. Grizzly
  12. Do you use a soft rubber style bead or a hard plastic????? Thanks, Grizzly
  13. I knew you guys would point me in the right direction. I appreciate it. Do you run it just like that or put shrink tubing over it and shrink it??? possibly to avoid getting stuck buy the wires???? Thanks Agian, Grizzly.
  14. OK, I finally got my wire diver rig. In the box the company sent me a swivel and beads as well as some sleves to crimp. I want to make sure I am doing this correctly. Can I get some assistance here? do i just slide the bead above the crimp and go through the swivel and back into the crimp???? Any help here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Grizzly
  15. Thanks for the report. Lets hope things get rolling soon. Grizzly
