  1. Ended up using Ann's custom canvas in walker. Very happy with how it turned out and quality/fit is spot on with what was agreed on. The shape makes my boat look a little funny/short, it's what I asked for. I wanted it over the arch so I could get in and tinker without removing (side zipper installed for access) and wanted the motors and battery compartments exposed so I can start the motors with the cover on the day before to make sure things are working properly. If anyone is looking, I highly recommend working with them. Sent from my SM-G973U1 using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  2. This is just above my rub rail in a couple spots. Any thoughts on how to repair? Last year I did a full restore with compound, polish, and wax due to some heavy oxidation. These spots were already there prior. Sent from my SM-G973U1 using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  3. I usually clip board right after copper/lead. No line counter required and easier to explain to people I bring out. You could probably ask 10 people and get 10 different preferences. No matter what you do, just keep it consistent from one setup to another so they are repeatable. If you want to experiment, pick up a fishhawk TD to see how much it changes even just from trolling a different direction. Like others said the speed and currents play a huge role in where it rides, so those numbers are really just starting points. Sent from my SM-G973U1 using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  5. I'm 95% sure this is cable steer but can somebody that is more educated than me in this space confirm this is true? I bought a hydraulic steer autopilot in the offseason thinking I for sure had hydraulic steering so now I'm looking to convert this to hydraulic. Just want a last final word before I order the parts. Should be two hoses if it's hydraulic, right? Sent from my SM-G973U1 using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  7. What do you all use to store/transfer your starting lineup for a day of Salmon fishing? I've gone through several variations of bins, tackle boxes, bags, sleeves, etc. and just curious what others do. I don't put lures on rods before the boat is launched because they all lay together during trailering. Too many tangles with hooks attached.

  8. Where can I launch to fish grand haven this year? Sent from my SM-G973U1 using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  9. 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
  10. 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

  14. 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.
  15. 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.
