  1. Just got this off the daiwa site. Don't know when it will be available but I want 4!
  2. Anyone fishing out of Pentwater or Ludington this morning? We are straight out of Ludington in 350 ft and have two coho. Got a late start today. Both came on spoons on free sliders.
  3. Yes you can fit 450 ft of 45lb cu on a 800 tekota but your braid backing is minimal at best. The okuma 55 will take a acceptable amount of backing and even a repair or two without binding up the levelwind.
  4. Marine Tex is also a two part epoxy and gel coat will stick as good to it as any other epoxy. If you plan on overcoating with gel coat it very easy to drill into creating a depression for the gelcoat.
  5. Sounds like the loctite product you can find at menards it does harden like marinetex. While it might work I've found it is best left to sealing bolted on equipment and is inferior to 3m products like 5200. The marine Tex imo is what you want
  6. I would return it to the marina they should have checked for proper operation before you got it back.
  7. It looks like a fiberglass boat you have so fill with marine tex.
  8. I am in favor of the idea as I occasionally fish solo or with one other and would love to run additional rods but what if the fishery changed as it often does and lots of people have already spent lots of money on extra rods and equipment and the dnr decides to go back to a 3 rod limit it would be a hard pill to swallow if your used to fishing 6 rods per. Imagine if they wanted to go back to a 2 rod limit right now! More power to you I'm just thinking out loud.
  9. Either one, they both work great. I would'nt have a use for the bluetooth feature but if you have a flybridge boat it could be of use.
  10. Never heard of having to loosen the cap and have never had a issue with the probe. I would be more afraid of forgetting to tighten it before the next use and filling it with water than I would be of some pressure related failure at the surface. I think alot of problems arise from leaving probe on rigger bouncing around and banging into the rigger boom and gunnels causing cracks.
  11. Same thing happened in south haven last week right after the kings left.
  12. Those are the trips you will remember for a lifetime.
  13. FYI your auto stop feature will not work with braided line it cant sense the electrical current break through the braid and will not stop on its own and they are plenty powerful enough to snap that braid right off and send your probe ,pulley, weight and release to the bottom. I commend you on a innovative approach to a nagging issue everyone has but it seems you are complicating things beyond any real world gain.
  14. Can you tell me the model # Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  15. Still available? If so text me 2695018911 Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  16. Check out Coastalnightlights.com I've been running them for years there cheap but bright. As easy to install as a transom transducer
  17. Are you serious? Ive not heard of this stealth drone before would seem like a huge invasion of privacy if there flying around your boat in 150 ft of water where you would'nt expect anyone to be watching and recording what your doing.
  18. Fished sout haven also on sat the bite started to turn on late for us around 11:00 am and didnt last all that long. fish where widely scattered.
  19. Fished from 5 till8 ran 6 lines in 110 ft water ended up 4 for 5 two 3 yr old kings and two lakers. flasher fly and plugs on low divers. lots of fish right on bottom in 80 ft as we were pulling lines.
  20. I actually made some out of aluminum and was planning on using them for storing the riggers in a unused compartment of the boat but never did. Only thing is they should probably have a S.S. helicoil as the al. threads would probably wear out over time.
  21. went 7 for 9 120 ft water 300 cu with f.f was best,low diver with f.f. took a couple and riggers took 2 with spoons. kevorkian s.d. with mirage fly was best.1 king was 24lb. 3 lakers 1 steel rest were kings.
