  1. i break mine down but u have to be careful not to kink the wire. i flip the top upside down, reel slack out and use a cord wrap to keep the top and bottom together
  2. kewaunee and algoma will be good by then ill be in kewaunee may 29th
  3. i'm looking to install a conversion kit on my 1975 302. no idea what i'm looking for so any information would be greatly appreciated. do i want a kit with a distributor or will a point replacement kit be just as good? where can i locate these kits online? again thanks in advance for any feedback
  4. winthrop harbor not sure when they start fishing but a bunch of northern charters head down there for the spring coho check into tiger charters or kinns catch
  5. i bled all my fish at time of catching them this year, i.e. sliced their gills. it made a world of difference in how much better they tasted and much less messy to fillet
  6. my 24' 302 came with one and i really like it i can get down under 2.0 if needed. my plate broke off last year and fishing without it sucked couldnt get under 3.0 i did have a bag i used rest of the morning but i was in 4 footers which deemed my sport pilot worthless like that. bought a new unit for like $125 i think and that afternoon was back in business
  7. i ordered it online cant remember the exact site. just google rubber flooring n u should find it.make sure u check a few places though because i remember 1 was cheaper but charged outrageous shipping, were as 1 was a little more but free shipping making total cost a lot cheaper. its actually industrial flooring. if u cant find it let me know and ill try to find the site
  8. i used the rubberized paint but after i was done figured it would be a pain to keep clean.so i bought some rubber floor mat, comes in 4' rolls as long as you want. i went with 1/4 " to keep the weight down. i used 2 rolls and put a piece of carpet tape under the middle to hold them together. looks awesome, cleans easy, and provides comfort for standing on. plus it has good traction. i put it in 4 years ago and it still as good as when i put it in
  9. looking at replacing my lower and upper unit on my 1975 24' regal. found one online at gomarine for $1295. two questions i have are 1 does anyone have knowledge of them and their products? says 3 year warranty seems legit to me. 2nd they offer 4 different gear ratios. do i need to find out what mine is and stick with that or can i use any of them. if any of them which would be best. i believe some gotta be better for trolling and others for top end but im not sure which is which. is their a happy medium? any knowledge would be appreciated as all i know for sure is my lower unit is cracked and the jb weld aint gonna hold forever lol. thanks in advance
  10. that is correct. fish early n late. during the day try to find cold water deep
  11. i realize there are lots of variables here but i'm wondering what the difference is between my 24' regal with one 302 versus a 30' with 2 motors.I'm pretty sure i learned on here rule of thumb for my boat was going to be 2 gallons per hour n that held true.so I'm thinking about moving up in size to a 27'-30' boat with a hardtop,don't want outboards, just wondering what to expect at the gas pump. also any other thoughts to consider while shopping will be appreciated. what iv'e learned so far from my 1st boat is i want a hard top and hydraulic steering.
  12. hook your dipsey on your rod then run snubber n floro to bottom of reel 4 length flasher to fly i run 8" flasher with 24" floro to fly thats bottom of hook to tip of loop remember flasher speeds are typically slower i run 2.4-2.7 put a moonshine bloody nose spoon on your other rod it will get bit at that speed too
  13. you should be out an hour earlier water was piss warm when you were out shallow bite only lasted maybe 40 min before i set out to 240 fow were the cold water was. your diagram says mono leader if thats true get some 30 lb florocarbon. white crush glow flasher with a little boy blue glow fly, its killed more salmon for me in kewaunee past three years than any other rod. i will be in kewaunee again thursday through saturday channel 6 "the catchin machine" always willing to help.
  14. i would suggest adjusting speed like mentioned above, also keep in mind trolling angle can also be key. if you can afford couple more dipsey rods i like to run 2 out both sides so i can cover more depths with them. this year my inside dipseys have been real good both set on 1.5 0ne out 175 other 135 out i always run white flasher crush glow tape with little boy blue fly on the 175. ill be in kewaunee whole week of kd tournament if you happen to be around
