  1. I purchased the Pro Package with some options at the beginning of last year...just purchased and installed the Visor frame to that over this weekend. It takes a little playing around to get everything squared up, but love the product. If you need something a little custom, Jim at Fish On Sports will work with you. You can get better product (custom bent and welded), but for the money Fish On is highly recommended. Sturdy set up. Mine is about ready for a trip to Canvas Innovations for a custom canvas and isinglass. Should have bought everything together last year, but I used the aging bimini and isinglas from the previous boat owner. See pics attached. http://www.greatlakesfisherman.com/gallery/files/3/4/5/8/visor_frame_install_-_side.jpg http://www.greatlakesfisherman.com/gallery/files/3/4/5/8/visor_frame_install_-_side-2.jpg
  2. I had the 80# Terrova I Pilot on my 18' Lund Alaskan. Had 2 of the Group 28 Cabelas brand AGM batteries tied together for the 24 volts. Also had a Minn Kota on board charger that I installed with the motor and batts...only way to go. Loved that set up. I would recommend this as a minimum. If you have the room for the 36 volt 101#, that may be something to consider for longer trips. Used my 6 hp kicker for thrust, used the I Pilot for directional control/autopilot. Avoid using the "cruise control" for speed as it'll over or under compensate for wind, wave and current direction at times and in doing so, run your batteries down or create a loss of directional control.
  3. Thanks again Captain Mike. I have had a few very slow outings on Lake MI lately for salmon and thought, for awhile there, that the flat calm conditions were going to put us in for another one for our first ever outing on the Bay. You found us some active fish and we beat up on them pretty good. My parents were thrilled; they made the long trip out from PA to experience Saginaw walleye fishing and had a great time fishing with you. I do think we will be back to the Bay.
