  1. dehydration can sneak up on you. Fear having it happen fishing solo all day.
  2. Copilottruman Easy install? Any instructions? TyeeII Why single hooks improve hook ups?
  3. Never had any problems pulling 10 color behind a Church Walleye board. I adjust the weigh fully forward. Then I turn the forward clip 180 degrees so the open clip end faces the board. I put the line in the clip so it is behind the clip post and between the clip and the board. Never comes off and never flips over on me even in rough waters. Agree with JDH. Put a length of 40 lb. test between braid backer and lead core to clip the board to the line.
  4. Whenever I hail anyone out of South Haven on 68....nothing. I give up. Holland to Grand Haven is a different story. Almost always someone responds. A lot more fun when chatter on the radio.
  5. Nice boat! Thanks for being willing to put out fish report and available radio contact....too many unwilling to talk on the air.
  6. I like the idea, but I'd make a different recommendation on the number of "reasonable" lines per boat. Instead of 12 lines for up to two licenses on board, I'd suggest 6 lines max for a single license on board and then 3 lines per additional license on board. In other words, with two licenses = 9 lines max, 3 licenses = 12 lines max., etc. I like the original thought of allowing more lines when there is a single fisherman on board. When I go solo, I would like to run more than 3 lines and would be willing to pay extra as an annual fee to do so.
  7. Crazy 525 copper....but if it works...more power to you. I was out there solo yesterday. landed Coho and 10# King. Lost a big King at the net. All caught on the same rig...Mtn Dew SD and UV yellow meat rig on 2-color SWR 88 feet down to ball.
  8. I run a braid backer 50#, then about 20-30 feet of 40# mono, then connect my copper or leadcore line with leader to follow. I always attach my tx44 board to 40# mono. Never had a problem with a break-off running that set up for 6 years.
  9. , Long day. Fished 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM before first hit. Went 3 for 5 by 9:30 PM 19# and 14# Kings on green meat rig and Live wire SD (both caught on same line) on 350 copper 11# Steelhead on green ladderback glow Silverstreak plug on 5 color leadcore. Missed simultaneous double on 350 copper with black/glow SD with red/black meat rig, and same green ladderback SS plug on 5 color. Nothing on downriggers. Nothing on any spoons. Green seemed to be the color. All fish caught in 115-165 FOW
  10. Ed, sent you an email. Didn't read this first. Hoping to get out there tomorrow PM
  11. Stay out of my way Sea Eagle, I want some of those!!!!! Maybe we'll see you out there!
