  1. I do agree that the Fish Hawk and Smart Troll system have a few more advantages, no coated cable probably being the biggest one.

    I'm more of a weekend warrior, take the kids out fisherman. More info will be great and the cash saved can go towards other things.

    I don't think the coated cable will be that big a deal,I may look at the new uncoated cable from Torpedo when I find a DR.

  2. Not too much for me,

    Building a house,I had a contractor close it in then I took over, doing basically everything except drywall and taping/mudding.Drywall is done on the main floor now ,started on the downstairs today.

    When the house is done i'll start on the shop,24'x42'.

    As for fishing projects I just picked up 345 convectors and a 453 cold water as well as 4 copper/lead GLT's.Also fixed up my lure boards as well.

    Can't wait to hit the water Gotta get the house done though.

  3. Can you tune tune the spin doctor's to run with spoons or do you use all SD's or paddles?I've tried SD's a few times with no luck.In saying that our salmon fishery on this side of the lake isn't the same as you guys have.I think I caught 3 or 4 chinooks last year,biggest about 8 lbs,the rest are coho,bows,lakers and pinks.

  4. Thanks Ryan, I've been checking out the Torpedo uncoated cable,if I had to replace the coated I think that would be the way to go.

    I found the thread about the tip ruining the cable,it was on GLA and the fella was using 20lb balls on a walker,he said using 12lb ers,no problem.

  5. Thanks Ryan, that's the info I was looking for.An RCA jack is easy to disconnect when heading to smaller lakes.

    Erik,thanks as well,i've been doing alot of reading and there doesn't really seem to be too many negatives about any of them.Moor,Depth Raider or the Fish Hawk.

  6. Hey guys,

    I'm looking at buying a speed/temp probe. I'll be installing it on an 18' Jon boat, I know,not you're typical salmon boat. I remove the riggers often and am wondering which probe antenna set up would be the easiest to disconnect from the boat when I remove the riggers? Price wise I'm looking at the sub troll or the depth raider.

    If I could find a used x4 I would go that way, no question.


  7. Nice pics!

    Hey Frank,how's the fishing in Tawas City? I fish out of Kincardine,pretty much staight east of you.The spring and early summer were really good.Not alot of size to them but lots lots of coho and bows.

    The big perch are also making a come back. Lots of limits caught off of Goderich this spring.

  8. Hey guys,

    Stumbled on this site while searching for Lake Huron fishing info.Starting to get back into the salmon fishing,I helped my dad and partner run their charter boat out of Kincardine in the late 80's.

    I picked up a boat off of a buddy this winter,it's defineately not a salmon boat but I have been doing quite well.It's an 18' crestliner Jon,I have to be picky on the wind conditions but so far it's been great.

    We've netted about 36 fish in 6 outings.Mostly coho,biggest was about a 10lb bow.

    I've had my son out with me every time,the first salmon he brought in,he couldn't believe the fight.I told him to wait until we get into some bigger fish.

    This looks like an excellant site and hope to try out some tactics you fellas use.
