    thanks Dennis , I’ve decided this year it’s back to the way we used to do it , pull the boat to the fish instead of slipping and waiting for them to get to holland 

    Tarrey (Sea Eagle) and I have been doing that for few years.  Trouble is now we can't fish together during the lock down.  My boats an IO so don't want to put into the water until I'm sure it wont freeze at night so may be awhile.  Take care stay healthy and good luck fishing.

    Thanks for the report , does anyone know what the schedule is for the railroad trestle, as in when it’s open and when it’s closed , I’m thinking about going Sunday and haven’t been in a few years and my boat will not fit under it.

    Hi Terry,

    Don't know if it has changed this year Because Tarrey E and I haven't been out with the Quarentine but in the last few years the trestle is open unless a train is coming and then it swings across the river until the train passes then reopens.

    I took my 11 year old son, 2 of his 11 year old friends and an 8 year old friend out tonight. I should be awarded a medal for that alone but the three older boys were all on an all-star baseball team that won the Paw Paw tournament on Monday night so this was a reward for them.

    We set down in 130 and lost one on a rigger 70 down before I had 3 lines in the water.  I got everything down except for the last 300 copper and we had a nice king on a rigger down 90.  Got him to the back of the boat but the net job was less than stellar and he got knocked off.  We then caught a 5 pound coho on a rigger down 70, another king on a 300 copper, he was 10 pounds, 2 lake trout on a wire diver back  160 and the last king on a 250 copper, he was also around 10 pounds. Lost another nice king on wire diver back 150 but he was only on for a minute or two.

    Green spin doctors on the divers and moonshine blue jeans and Mongolian beef and a purple and green spoon with a stripe were our best baits.

    we fished from 6 until 9.

    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.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
