  1. I had lines wet with "?" marked on the graph by 6 AM. Like I said though, there was a boat near us that was 7 for 9 by around 9 AM and I think we were still 0 for 0 at that point. Who knows. I like the idea that it's just bugs and all the fish were avoiding the spot we were in. At least then I have a reason we didn't catch anything. HA
  2. There was another boat fishing similar depth and catching fish when I wasn't. I was pounding the area and depth of the bait/bugs. He might have been outside of it. I can think of at least a half dozen trips where I've marked these and consistantly have not much when fishing in or around it. Most of the time I catch fish that aren't even on the graph. I did catch a suspended lake trout around those clouds. Go figure. Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  6. So I guess the million dollar question would be... Do you fish those spots or avoid them? I always try setting up on these types of marks and get frustrated when I can't get a darn thing to work in/around it. PS, sorry if I'm hijacking the post.
  7. Honestly it's a good question. Over the last 5 years I've seen marks like this, usually in the morning, rarely after the sun is up. I've always thought it was bait, but I suppose it could be something else. I saw small may flies on my boat when I launched and there were a ton of small black bugs on the boat in the AM while trolling. There were fish marks in/around these, whatever they are. I also could see my downrigger cable and diver wires vibrate when I went through them. I didn't see any sign of bugs on top of cannonballs or anything like that. It would be an interesting experiment to have a camera to drop down and see.
  8. I had the same experiance in Grand Haven on Thursday. Lots of bait. 1 for 3 but with all the bait felt there should have been more fish. Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  9. Much appreciated! Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  10. I'm not familiar with chinook pier, is there signs or a road name I should look for? Boat trailer parking nearby or do people pull their boats up before putting on a trailer? Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  11. Is there a place to clean fish in Grand Haven if using the harbor island boat launch? Also might create a new topic, but if anyone launches there this weekend please report how the water levels are. Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  12. I ended up getting a cheap cover on eBay that was designed for a boat with a hard top. Paid about $300 for it and it ended up tearing in a wind storm at the end of the year. I am saving up for a barn (shooting for spring 2020) so I opted to go the cheap route again this year and got another of the same cover. This year i reinforced all the contact points that tore last time and also installed a boat vent to help avoid pooling on the bow like i had last year. My hope is it will last me until I build the barn. Probably would have been better getting a $1,500 custom cover, but I'm stubborn. Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  13. If you or anyone you know is a hockey player that would be interested in playing on a men's league team in Walker, MI this fall please shoot me a note. I've got a team with a few open slots that I'm looking to fill. Skill level is intermediate. Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  14. Glad to see it's not just me. I've been trying to reset my password and reinstall with no success. Was hoping it was a system issue and not just my inability to operate a smartphone.
  15. Thanks for taking me out bob. I grabbed a picture of the scale. 17 lb 10 oz. Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
