  1. All I can say is it was a very informational day. I learned a great amount..Not to mention I came home with some awesome goodies in my bag. Plus won a 70 dollar shimano rod.

    I will give you guys just starting out and needing some gear/lures. Ask lots of questions.. They reward you like a dog for doing tricks..LOL great speakers.

    Money well spent.imho

  2. I too will be at the MI City seminar. It will be a chance for a beginner to learn from what more experienced fisherman have to offer. I will also try to meet as many of the guys that fish out of Trail Creek and Portage to possibly learn from the locals too.

    Plus I am so Jonesing to fish for salmon again that I can maybe get a little "fix" while awaiting spring. Eric Enk, Martinsville Indiana.

  3. Spent the past few weeks , prepping for paint. Then painting and pin striping.I mounted the battery charger, ran wires to the rear for the rear batteries. Going to add two flush mount rod holders for gimbal mount riggers.

    Not really much else to do to it.. Other than sit in it and dream of spring!

  4. Started early AUgust on lake Mi out of MI city.. I have a 19 foot deep vee. runs good and safe enough for the most part. But the 3 hour drive to the lake for the weekend always involved a hotel.

    So wife and I decided it was time for a bigger boat with a cuddy. I prefer aluminum for many good reasons. Weight being one of them. I currently drive a duramax dually. But one of these days I might buy smaller truck.Or let a buddy tow the boat. I found this boat on the net, 22 foot crestliner with a cuddy and walkaround, something my wife wants so she can lay out up there, or one of the kids. 3.8 liter v6 includes a 15 horse evinrude kicker, 4 cannon electric downriggers and way way to much gear like release clips, dipsy, torpedo divers, planer boards, as well as a pair of collapsable big boards to mention.




  5. I myself am new to fishing the big waters. With that 21 foot boat you should be able to stand back and throw lots of Ben Franklins at it.. It is not a cheap passion to pick up. It seems a lot of the required equipment needed will last many years. dipseys.lead core, wire, Flashers, dodgers.

    I just started fishing Lake MI in August and dumped 700 dollars right off the bat on tackle. But every penny was well spent. It is pretty peaceful 8-15 miles off the bank..

  6. I have cannons as well as big junks on my boat. The Bjs flop and rattle all the time going down the road. You must fasten them down to the boat or they will bounce violently. I just bought a used Cannon mag 10 for 240 bucks delivered with dual rod holders .

    The only good thing in my opinion about a bj is their ability to lift back to rig.
