  1. Saturday we ran to little point to get away from traffic. Ended with four and one pig. Sunday set up out front. Worked 80-100 fow. Ended with 10. Four diver bites with meat, two plugs, the rest spoons. Core, copper and riggers all went.
  2. I've been on both sides. My question about tow boat is do you need a policy for each boat or is it like triple a where it's the person?
  3. Fished the bank yesterday. Saw plenty of fish caught. We took two good rips on 200 copper with meat but missed them. Hooked up on wire as we were pulling them. It went out to 700'. Had it to the back and came off. Long day!
  4. OH man that sounds painful!!! I have been fishing the East side since it is closer for me. Fishing has been really good there to. Heal up and kill some eyes.
  5. Just a rubber band for me with a 6 foot lead. I set it 4' above the primary.
  6. I just have a cheapy Cabelas reel on one of mine and it just finished its fourth season. If you keep the drag looser it won't burn out. Its probably had 100-150 fish on it...
  7. Nice job. Meat was the only thing that I couldn't get to go...
  8. it was good last weekend. Mostly south but some were getting them north. 85-110 fow. It changes everyday so hard to give you exact info.
  9. Sure wouldn't surprise me! usually more like 50-80 down.
  10. I would hold off on rigging anything until the time comes. 150 and 200 copper may be hot and 300 would be too deep. 450 copper may be hot...half cores with plugs, 2 colors with orange spoons...when you are about two days out check the weather (wind direction) and then research what is going on.
  11. Went out this weekend. 3-4 Saturday 120 down on meat and 80 on spoon. 4-5 on Sunday 200 copper and 300 copper. Just me and my wife for a few hours each morning. It was a little brisk...
  12. Action glow blue bubble and pickled sunshine/liquid sunshine have always been my best.
  13. I don't run that bait but all of my flies have 7/0 red gamaktsu octopus hooks.
  14. Hey Matt, I grew up in Ludington so I have been fishing my whole life. I know a lot of mates and captains. I always thought about it too but never did either. Now I work my butt off but still fish almost every weekend. Once you start working you will get burnt out no matter what you choose to do. During the summer I go to work just to get a break from fishing!!! If you can afford the liscense it doesn't hurt to have but work your way into it.
