  1. I have one that I bought from Priority that I no longer need, bought a new boat with all the bells and whistles. PM me for details if you are interested
  2. I neglected to give recognition to the big king of the tournament, shame on me. Big king was 17.45. Props to my friends on team Shakers for that nice fish.
  3. Lots of good fish brought to the scales last weekend. The ladies tournament was won with a 5 fish box totaling 63 pounds-all lake trout. There was a 21.45 pound laker in the Am division as well as a 16 pound steelhead. I didn't fish the main tournament, just the 333 but we brought in a 13.65 pound brown while putting together a box to capture 4th place. It certainly was a mixed weekend. Everyone seemed to have one good day of fishing and another of nearly nothing.
  4. I was pleasantly surprised when we landed that one. I'm hoping this is a positive sign for this season. I would like to have that box in a tournament. Right at 50 pounds for 4 fish.
  5. All kings on my boat. One 15# laker I heard of and a couple browns around the 10# mark.
  6. We fished in the Tight Lines for Troops event this weekend and was pleasantly surprised with the fish that came in One boat brought 11 fish to the scales and numerous 4 to 6 fish boxes. Fortunately for my boat, the COHO, this was a big fish tournament. My box of 4 fish had the winner in it at 16.35 pounds. I also had a 14 and a 12 pounder. Encouraging results for this early and the cold water.
  7. I would love to fish with you but I am in Tight Lines this Friday and Saturday. Wish you the best in finding someone and in the tourney.
  8. Crud, if I hadn't already paid all my fees and started the ball rolling I would apply. Wish you luck in finding a captain. Have a safe summer.
  9. Thanks Frank, no rush on my end. I pm'd you with my email address. Have a great day. Gene
  10. Thanks Frank. The only reason I asked is my current "main" computer is getting ready to die so I thought that I would move my current backup unit into service and then maybe get one of your units as my "backup" which is my travel computer that I use when I teach classes (scuba), short videos but no gaming. That was the only concern that I had regarding the tech specs. Thank again. What would you be asking for the cf 31 unit you described?
  11. Frank, couple questions and I apologize if I missed this from another post. What are the tech specs on this/these units. Processor speed, RAM, HD size, approximate battery life. I like the idea of this but need more info. Thanks Gene
  12. Where are you located so we can estimate shipping? Thanks Gene
  13. Do you still have the reels for sale?

  14. Which ones? What length and weight? I have some that I have been thinking of letting go.
  15. Commonly called the Derelict. Fun dive. I have taken quite a few students and new divers to this area. Fun night diving around the stone jetty's as well.
  16. And not that it really matters in the real world but my deck lights point nearly straight down to the floor not out the back over the transom.
  17. I agree with this being a big pain and a possible safety concern and I must admit that I have done this but I do try to remember to not turn them on until we have cleared the pier heads. If someone called me on the radio though I would certainly turn them off.
  18. We had 6 hits Sunday morning out of Manistee and 5 of those came on meat and 4 of those were on a wire dipsy. 21 1/2 lb king smashed the bait and my (experienced) first mate couldn't hardly get the rod from the holder the fish was putting so much pressure on the unit. By the time the customer started fighting the big king it had gotten nearly 200' of line off the reel. Gotta love the wire for stimulating bites and the adrenaline rush when fighting an excited fish.
  19. Agreed this is a concern but to me a larger concern wow be the people that don't use or don't have any lights. I followed a smaller boat out of the harbor this morning that the only light visible was their cell phone. Very scary and irritating.

  20. Took my nephew out for a graduation present, along with his dad and another fella and his son. Fished 130 to 240 FOW and had 6 hits and landed 5. 3 Kings, a metal head and a coho. Big fish was a 21 1/2 king that had a pot belly. This fish wasn't processed as the fella that landed it wanted it whole but I am sure it was a female and planted to boot. 5 of the 6 hits came on meat rigs with 10" SD with a UV Gasoline meat head took 3 hits, 10 " Kevins girlfriend and DW Green mile took one and 1 hit on a 10 " Froggy/chrome with an old green magnum meat head. I don't want to get bashed but 4 of the 5 meat hits came on meat strips that I whipped up yesterday and I want to test them further before sharing details. Right now I am hoping they become the latest and greatest. Still tough fishing out of Manistee with most of the fleet getting less than 7 or 8 hits per trip so I feel especially blessed with our trip. Can't wait until the next time.
  21. Medic, PM or email me when you get a chance, something I would like to chat with you about. [email protected] Thanks
  22. Hello. I tried to send you a PM but your message box seems to be full. Just wanted to say hello and that I am slipped beside the Knapptime at Seng's.
  23. 130 to 250 fow. Most action came as the sun got low. We were done by 10 Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Great Lakes Fisherman mobile app
