  1. I wouldn't use 20 floro, tried it and lost a lot of $. 25-30 mono for my leaders
  2. I don't know about 300 of 45lb being the best choice. 32lb is much easier to work with and 225ft of 32 is my most productive rod year round. 300 of 45 deff has it's place, especially when the bite is slow. I would get at least two coppers and make sure your dipsey leaders are at least 12-15 ft. I made the mistake of running mine too short for a while. Torpedo or drop weights are a good method if you don't have riggers.
  3. What depth and area were you fishing? I'm staying by Pentwater this week and hoping to take the kids out and get them on some fish. Thanks !
  4. Great job guys!!! Did all your hits come near the bottom?
  5. I spoke with some charters this morning at the pentwater cleaning station. They did pretty good in 50-60 fow. Seemed like they did the best on their short copper set ups. 50-100 foot coppers.
  6. I just read an article on the dnr website about ehd and blue tongue causing the death of over 500 deer so far in ionia and branch counties. Doesnt sound good. Does anyone know more about this? Specifically, where in ionia county have these deer been found?
  7. That same thing happened to me 4th of July morning on a flounder pounder spoon. I have no idea how it happened .
  8. Anyone have a recent perch report out of Holland ? Wondering if the cold water brought them in ?
