  1. My buddy works for the St Joe water department. 2 pumps that pump the discharge from the fish cleaning station overloaded a couple weeks ago when the big kings were were still around St Joe. Part of my buddies job is skimming the layer of ground fish fat and offal from the holding tanks when the pumps start backing up. He says he's never seen it even close to as heavy and thick as it has been recently. I did not ask if they were hiring. New pumps are on order and should be installed soon. We're talking big, expensive pumps, so the water department guys were apparently pretty ticked about it. I sent him in with a cooler full of Salmon to pass around to the workers as an olive branch, lol.

  3. I think I was picking you up giving a report on the VHF giving a report while we were fishing (not catching) out of St Joe. We were very jealous. Sent from my N9518 using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

    St joe 4/29

    We didn't do any better. Fished 180 to 200 and had some marks, landed 1 coho on a 120 copper with greenish yellow spotted mini streak. In hindsight we probably should have run lines deeper, I was hoping for some steelhead. Trolled all the way into 70 with very few marks. Landed one more Coho on a J-9 rainbow trout color at 95 feet. Probably will set up closer tomorrow.

    Various Trolling Questions

    Heck, the learning is half the fun. Your obviously intelligent and inquisitive. I predict a boatload of fish for you,

    Various Trolling Questions

    No way 10 color is hitting 100' feet at 2.5. Maybe bounce your balls or divers if your going for Lakers. I would also humbly suggest not using body baits for Lakers, but rather spin n glows with cowbells (gotta go slow) or Dodgers.

    St. Joe 4/15

    Hey Larry, I was fishing around you in the Sportcraft with the blue canvas, we were 2 for 2. Slow day, but sure was nice out. Landed a coho early then a nice very feisty 12lb 14oz king at 12:30 on a brownish green spotted mini streak on a 2 Color. Couldn't believe it. Got to wait an hour at least for the railroad bridge to open, that was a blast. I'll probably see you out there tomorrow too.

    How cold can my engine get?

    Yep, put it in and left it in, and thanks for asking. Only managed to get 6 trips in so far, but at least the block hasn't frozen, and it got down to 21F last Friday. On below freezing night I've thrown a seedling heating mat in the bilge and covered the motor with a blanket. Next year, I believe I shall wait longer. The worry hasn't been worth it.
  9. This is the earliest I've had my boat ready and I'm itching to get in on this great coho run, the pier just isn't working for me. Sportcraft 252 with a Volvo-Penta 5.0 i/o and would be in the water at a marina. The short and long term forecast calls for the occasional night dropping as low as 27 in St Joe. How cold does it have to get before I worry about busting a manifold or something?

    Meat rigs

    I switched over to Familiar Bite early this year after needing some in Holland and that was what they sold at Lakeshore Tackle. In my opinion they are longer, meatier and tougher than Erie Dearie. I had to drive back up to Saugatuck from St Joe to stock up on them. Not entirely sure if I'm getting any better results on them yet, but I'm an optimist. I wonder though, if any decently brined brand won't due.

    Where? Calumet Marine here on the forum is always a reliable source. You must be serious about it, first post in two years.
  13. I've been watching it on WFN. Very neat.

    Wtb copper reels

    Hoosier Daddy here on the forum has a great deal on a high quality pair, and you'd have a bunch of copper left over you could use on other reels. I wish someone would hurry up and buy them before I break down and do it. http://www.greatlakesfisherman.com/forums/showthread.php?t=38157
