  1. Nice catch but it looks like you're cleaning them at home. Is the fish cleaning station not open?
  2. Bought a used one a few years ago, used it for at least part of one season, seemed to work well until the plate fell off I've used bags ever since and like the ride better in rough water Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman mobile app

  5. I basically treat my UV lures as different shades of whatever color they are. Just like some days they'll hit blue whether its UV or not, some days they'll only hit the UV. I haven't done much head to head comparison, as I don't have much control over light conditions, waves, etc. What we see with the black light is far different from what the fish sees in the UV spectrum. Any metallic surface will reflect UV. It's why you see people tanning with silvered cardboard. Though your chrome spoons will reflect better than the metallic green/yellow or copper.

  9. Slow day today, but skunk is out of the box. Set up in 40 fow with good marks but no takers. Lost the marks so began trolling out NW. Took 11 lb steel on 100 copper with Moonshine Red Hulk in 145 fow. Surface temp out here is 56 deg Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman mobile app
  10. Set lines just outside pier heads at 6 AM with good marks, made 2 passes with no hits. Marks evaporated so began heading out at 3.0 gps, 3.1 at the ball to cover ground. Took one hit on rigger 25 down in 55 fow with Moonshine Crab Cakes. Continued to head west and by the time we got to 100 fow we could tell it was going to be tough fishing with lots of calls for fishing reports on radio so continued to head out looking for better water. 46 deg water was 25 down in close but by the time we made it to 200 fow it had dropped down to 50 feet. Finished at 230 fow and decided to pull lines and call it quits, no sense trolling back through all that dead water. King was only 3 lbs,but at least no skunk and I'll know enough to stick closer in tomorrow.
  11. We can only hope they eventually drive their boats over the edge of Lake Michigan.
  12. Yes it is a nice fish, just too tantalizingly close to 20 which I haven't broke yet this year Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman mobile app
  13. And an excellent opinion it is Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman mobile app
  14. Short trip today due to concerns about the cell moving NE out of Chicago this morning and the need to be other places at noon. Set lines at 7 AM in 85 fow and pulled them at 10. Spent most of the morning in 95 to 105 fow on south troll thought did turn out and north at the end and got out to 125 fow, but didn't see much over 105. First hit on rigger 70 down in 98 fow took a 19 lb king in 98 fow with a Lucky Charm plug. About an hour later, 150 copper went with a 6 lb king in 102 fow with Moonshine Red Jeans. That was pretty much it, finished 2 for 2
