  1. Good Job sounds like there are still a few Salmon around Seahawk and were thinking they had all moved north but have not fished in the evening in a few years. Thanks for the report wish more would report their catches
  2. Good report thanks. Looks like Tarrey E (Sea Eagle) and I made the wrong choice yesterday because our previous outing on the big lake was not stellar we decided to chase bass yesterday that was not stellar either glad you guys did well. Always great to take kids fishing.
  3. Good job Tarrey. Only loosing one fish is good with novices on board.
  4. Same here, Tiff & Brad are getting some I got 10 meal size packages of the Kings, 1 of the Coho for tonight and 1 Lake Trout for smoking.
  5. Great Pic Tarrey it was a great day on the lake.
  6. Good Job Dan glad to hear the motors is running good again.
  7. Great Job Tarrey with a really nice catch.
  8. Great job and thanks for the report. Sure it good to see the bellies full and lots of big fish this early in the year.
  9. I fished with Tarrey and agree fish cleaning shed was a zoo but did find Alewives in the first one I cleaned then just had to get it done but did hear several others say the bellies were full and Brian the DNR Creel guy also mentioned the same as he was checking the bellies of several fish from other parties. Great day on the water with buddies Tarrey and Dan
  10. Thanks for the trip Dan enjoyed the day always good to be on the water. Nice meeting and fishing with you and Andre.
  11. Way to go guys just finding that board again is a miracle and then landing it is an amazing tale to tell.
  12. Good Job Terry thanks for the update. Wondered where the popular charters out of South Haven were on Sat.
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
  15. If all the above recommendations don't work make sure you don't have water in your gas it doesn't take much.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. Thanks for the great report Terry. Hopefully Sea Eagle and I can get out this weekend.
  22. 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.
  23. Way to go Mark not sure I would have been out in what was forecast.
