  1. fished St.Joe Friday 9.00till3:00.Caught 10 lost several.Fished south near the chalets on the 10-17foot break. Red and black thinfins and orange rapalas were the best,2.0mph.Found a small pod of cohos and just kept circling.The water was flat as glass can't ask for a better day.
  2. too much pack ice to fish Port Sheldon,so we took the little lund to So. haven.Fished ten till three caught 4 lost 2 all browns.to much pack there also to get out of the harbor.All the bites came on chrome shad raps.A better day is coming but all in all this one was not bad.
  3. The clock starts at the time they were to go.I try to contact them the day befor ,or when 15 mins. late.I'll wait an hour at the boat max.A no show looses his deposit an pays full price in advance the next time around.Our seasons are too short to miss days on the water.
  4. That super size pump sounds like quite a piece of equipment.You might want to check it's amp draw.It won't help you when your batteries are dead.
  5. I've used a small diamond hone from smokey mtn. knife co. Thery are not too expensive, an have lasted for years. I also sharpen a knife style cutting edge to the bard side of the point. Seems to work for me.
  6. In late summer I'll run paddel an fly deepest.but the early bite till monday was on plugs.The fish don't follow the rules,dem dirty buggers
  7. no body better than Tuna ask about his own drag package
  8. It has never made much differance in my catch,but I have had trouble getting some fish to the net after dark.
  9. ,I agree f.f.deep one on each outandown. Don't. Be afraid to run them on your divers but you will have to exprement Vifu
  10. I think to put 1000 ft of wire on a reel is not nessary.Load the first reel backwards.put on 500 ft of 40# wire 300yards of 50#fireline or the like,fill the reel up with 50#mono.wind.now you know how much mono to put under the wire and backing.wind onto the 2nd reel. and load the first again correctly using the same amounts.
  11. would someone please put up a post when the lake trout show up around the break walls.I havn't fished them in years from the piers it used to be the best pier fishing I ever saw.
  12. Many years ago I bought a boat that was detailed by the marina workers.they waxed the deck.Many falls slips and the like before it wore off.scrub with era laundry soap and bleach,power wash off and on to get up the scales that do not scrub off
  13. bead chain works the best but I stayed with two hooks
  14. best bite was a black and pearl big paddel with a black and whatever horsefly in july and augest.great for deep big fish
  15. if you have back stop down riggers(stop at the surface) they will not stop
  16. the only reason I run wire on my divers is becuse of spiny water fleas.I prefer to use 40# wire,it is more forgiving than the 30# when it comes in contact with a rigger or another diver(heaven forbid).my choice of rods is a diawa 10 footer with a" twilly tip"to protect the last guide.
  17. as the season progresses spin drs. and paddel size seems to increase.lead leangth(fly to rotater)needs to also go up with the size of the rotater,but always be flexable,fish do not read the book
  18. I heard of a way to load copper line in layers,put backing on the reel then 25yds. of copper 30 yds of backing 25 more yds. of copper 30 more yds. of backing ad so on untill full. saves the smaller boats from having to have too many rods on board to cover all the possable depths.Has any one here tried it?
  19. Ira Hayes drounded in a ditch.Always be careful no matter how far offshore
  20. When you move up and down the coast to fish what do you expect from the local capts.what should a traveler expect. I think I may follow the fish next year and do'nt want to step on anyones toes.
  21. Thanks for the welcoms.glad to find a site like this. good fishing for any of us ,is good for us all .There are no secrates at my dock
