  1. "Salmon confidential documentary 2013" can be found on YouTube along with a few others and are worth a look also.

    I watched a news investigative report the other day based in Canada where they purchased over one hundred fish filets from various grocery stores to be sent in to a lab to be tested to see if they were getting the fish as advertised on the package label, and 1/5 of those fish being sold were not even the same fish as advertised on the package. They are selling farm raised salmon and labeling and packaging them as wild salmon for one.

  2. Congrats on your master angler Chinook and thanks for sharing your info with the MA program and us. You can do alot of analyzing and research with the info the MA awards provides. Right down to what time of day,month,year most MA fish are caught and what areas or ports are the most productive for a certain species. I try to analyze the brown trout info every winter. I'd love to see the info broken down like you did for each species and for every category going as far back as possible, but by the time I get brown trout done I have had enough.

  3. I have two Okuma Clarion CLR-553L reels for sale.

    One has the enlarged line guide for copper line applications, the other has the reg. standard line guide.

    Used very very little and in like new shape.

    Comes with boxes they were purchased in with reel schematics sheet, warranty info., reel seat attachments, and bottle of reel lube.


    Model CLR-553L

    Bearing 2BB+1RB

    Gear Ratio 4.2:1

    Line Capacity LBS/YDS=25/680 , 30/520 , 40/440

    $100 each, Might consider $190 for the pair.

    Id like to downgrade to two Okuma Coldwaters instead.

    Will try to get pics posted...if not I can email them.

    Thanks, Mike

  4. Pretty sure you got the vicks idea from me at the cleaning station. It elps but they will still get yah. That dey I was wearing ziplock bags on my feet inside my sandals and wore a long sleeved shirt for pants (all I had ) and that helped too (but I did it more to add some style to my apparel). Fill a ziplock bag er two er three bout halfway w/water and add a buncha pennies and lay or try to hang them from something. Imma give that buggspray stuff a shot also...cause man those things can ruin a good time.

  5. I bought some from siggs but it wasn't as fine of material. Trying to find something finer like what dreamweaver and raptor uses.

    Know this has been awhile and not sure if you care anymore but...Purple Taco Fly Supply has thin cut 'Bandaboo' similar to the stuff Dreamweaver and Raptor uses. It is banded (all connected) so it is easier to work with...what you are looking for tho is called "tinsel 'strand' mylar", I believe and I have found it @ Cabelas, Gander Mt. and Michael's craft store before. I like the thinner stuff to over the thicker strand materials.

  6. Here's the deal...Who here has a beagle(s) or some type of coonhound that might allow me and my son (17) to JUST SPECTATE and stay out the way and just listen as you run your dogs?

    I am not looking to go "hunting" (though we will buy a license and look the part), and we would really prefer no guns be involved , but we will take what we can get. I would just really LOVE to go out and hear some dogs work and listen to them run and let my son experience what that is all about at least once in his life instead of telling him. It's no wheres near the same.

    I have grown up owning at least one beagle until I turned about 24 yrs. old (38 now) , in my "prime" and at one point I had four beagles and a black and tan coonhound. It has been waaay too long since I have heard the sweet sound of a hound or two... or three... or four... hot on a trail or barking up a tree.

    Would be willing to travel up to 2 hours from Grand Rapids and wherever it leads us after that. Not sure what I could offer in assistance or to help out with otherwise (maybe a fishing trip?), but if anything comes to mind and this sounds like something doable please shoot me a PM.

    If anyone knows of any hunting clubs that allow tag- a-longs and has a meet planned or maybe when and where a field trial is taking place (rabbits/coons) that allows spectators and in the near future somewhat close to the G.R. area that would be great also.
