  1. Rod trees still available? Do these rotate at the base? Track mount? Thanks for any info. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  2. I've always wanted to give jigging a try. Thanks for posting the video! Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  3. Yellow Tail has been my #1 spoon color for steelhead in both inland and Great Lakes waters. It comes in different variations - glow, silver or green back, etc. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App I fish it behind riggers and up higher 30ft or less using snap weights. No flashers.
  4. Very high quality video. Thanks for sharing!!!
  5. They didn't have the single axis rod holders in stock......yes, I've seen them and they are very nice.
  6. Very nice boat. Lots of fish fighting room! Love the high rails. My favorite rail mount rod holders for dipsies are the Down East Saltys.
  7. Didn't have any interest/offers, so I put this on EB*Y. No reserve auction. Ends Thursday night around 9:30pm eastern. www.ebay.com/itm/Cannon-Mag-15-Electric-Downrigger-New-/251045676791
  8. I visited Northwoods Outlet in Pinconning last week and they had Bert's rod holders (satin and buff brite) for 54.99 and Cannon dual axis rod holders for $74.99. Best prices I've seen.
  9. Aaron, you aren't jacking the thread! No problem.....this is all good discussion. I assume you are asking about Northwoods Outlet in Michigan? I haven't ordered via their online store, but I've been in the store SEVERAL times. Very large store, their fishing section is very well organized and well kept. A good selection of great lakes fishing gear. The best prices I've seen on Okuma Convector reels and name brand rod holders (Bert's, etc.) and accessories. One of my favorite stops in Eastern Michigan....along with Jays Sporting Goods and Frank's Great Outdoors. Based on how well kept their store is, I would definitely give them a try with an online order. http://www.northwoodsoutlet.com/
  10. Yeah, I also looked at their website....didn't work and couldn't find pricing info. I did look at their product during my last trip to Frank's Great Outdoors and the rod holders are VERY nice...and seem to be a functional design....I bet they would sell a ton if their internet site was user-friendly and if they had more stores and other internet sites selling them.
  11. I'm definitely going to check out the dipsey rod cradles ! Maybe buy them before the normal rod holders, as I am going to use them for dipseys anyway. Saving my $$$$.
  12. Actually never tried it. Spoons, flies, squids, and J plugs. Petoskey, Charlevoix, Boyne City, Cedarville, and Sault Ste. Marie.
  13. Thanks Greg. I am getting ready to place an order to outfit my boat with Cisco track and a net holder. I have decided that I am going to go with the Cisco rod holders. I will have to purchase them over time, but in the long run I feel it will be worth it. I was sold on their warranty after talking with David from Cisco. Thanks for the offer of checking the Bert's for me....but I plan on holding out till I can buy all Cisco. I did see their cradle type rod holders on their website. Very interesting ! My favorite rod holders of this type are salty's, but I would definitely consider the Ciscos. Maybe next year !
  14. WD-40 might work, though I haven't tried it on boat glass. It does prevent fog on bathroom mirrors, which I have tried and it does work for a week or so. I use WD-40 to clean our shower glass. Maybe doesn't work as well as an anti-fog product....but might save you some $ if you have a can of WD-40 laying around. http://www.wd40.com/files/pdf/wd-40_2042538679.pdf
  15. Just based on the price of new ones I would be inclined to take the risk. You could always sell them and potentially make more than what the owner will reduce the price of the boat by.
  16. Thanks.....I was about to buy a couple of Cannon's (today) so I could have a few on my boat. Not now !! I do have the RAMs on my boat....thought I needed an 'upgrade'.
  17. For Sale: CANNON MAG 15 Electric Downrigger - NEW I purchased this in 2005 from Cabelas in Dundee, MI. Took it out of the box to look at it a few times, but it has never been mounted to my boat or plugged in. Features: Heavy Duty Telescopic Boom 235 ft/min retrieve Short Stop Cannon Powertroll rod holder & a standard Cannon downrigger rod holder Positive Ion control 400ft stainless wire Does not include a swivel base (it didn't include one) $450. I will ship to the Great Lakes areas (USA only) via UPS Ground & insured for free. For those of you who don't know me well (I am new here) my Ebay ID is upnorth-net. Please PM if interested.
  18. Thanks, I spoke with Cisco today on the phone. Very impressed. Lifetime warranty no matter what, made in USA. Guess I need to start saving up!
  19. Thanks for the feedback guys! I won't be purchasing the app. I will, however, check out the Navionics App. Thanks for the heads-up Kevin.
  20. I started out using Big Jons Captain's Pak manuals. Very nice riggers for the money. Switched to Cannon Mag 10 and 15, now switching to the new Scotty's. The Scotty's can handle a heavier ball with ease.
  21. Wolverine Tackle's Silver Streak - Glo Yellow Tail and Yellow Tail have been my #1 producers for the last several years.
