    Maglip Body Baits

    Thanks Terry. How far back are you running them behind the boat on the river? I guessing the same colors as Hot an Tots and Wiggle Warts?

    I used the 3.5 sizes on Crystal Lake out of Beulah Mi last summer and caught both Steel Head an Lake Trout. One of the Lake trout was over 13 lbs. Biggest lake trout I have caught on that body of water.
  4. If all the above recommendations don't work make sure you don't have water in your gas it doesn't take much.
  5. Great job Terry. Fishing seemed tough for everyone but you this weekend. Tarrey E and I got skunked for the first time in 5 years of fishing together.
  6. Good Job thanks for the report

    Rod Storage while Trailering

    My Partner Sea Eagle has Trophy Pro that we trailer an hour to Lake Michigan. He built simple wooden racks that hold the rods taken down on each side wall of the cabin (8 rods per side). The rod holder just clip onto the walls When we take the rods down we wrap a 4-6" 3/4" wide strip of velcro around both ends of the rod to keep the halves together. We pull the rods out as soon as the boat is in the water and lay them on the gunwales. As soon as we clear the draw bridge one of us puts the rods together and puts them in the rod holders. The rods are all ready to go way before the end of the break wall in South Haven or St Joe. We do the same thing even if we leave the boat in the water with a cover over it Keeps the rods from getting damaged and they are not in the way when you are launching the boat. I use the velcro wraps on all my rods on all my boats and while in winter storage works great-lines never get tangled.

    I shoot 130 grains for Blackhorn 209 with a Thompson Center 200 grain Shockwave bullet in a Thomson Center Omega inline. No problem holding a 6 inch group at 200 yards. The velocity is very close to a 308 centerfire rifle. The great thing with the Blackhorn powder is you clean with normal cleaning solvents, it cleans fast and the barrel is protected when you are done. I have also shot as many as 40 rounds with out cleaning in between and still have no problem loading the tight fitting Shockwave bullets. The powder burns extremely clean and does not leave a powder ring in the barrel. The powder is the best thing I have found for an inline muzzle loader it does cost a little more than other black powder replacements.
  9. Glad to hear from you Mark. Been a tough year so far this was our best trip this year. First time out in the afternoon/evening usually fish in the morning
  10. Good Job Mike nice catch for short time on the water. Good to hear they are in close partner and I have been trying to decide if less than 100 is good or over 200 ft
  11. Thanks for the great report Terry. Hopefully Sea Eagle and I can get out this weekend.

    Sunrise at the Holland Piers

    Just read the article in the Free Press about the trek to South Manitou Island in March. I was surprised because I had been in Glenn Arbor in Feb when an East wind blew the ice out of the bay. Looks like it froze again. Tired of winter ready for the big lake with out ice.
  13. Way to go Mark not sure I would have been out in what was forecast.
  14. Good to see you got out Mark. We didn't get out quite as early on Saturday out of SH and we didn't hit a fish until 8:30 and as Tarrey noted in his report we went 6 for 9 with a nice mix of fish including a big COHO and a nice Steel Head. We were looking for the hogs too and the best we could do was 14.5. That was about the average size we saw in the cleaning shed. Keep it up they are out there.
