  2. I'll pass, was tempted if it were something I didn't have to ship. Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  4. New in box single dual axle rod holder. List online for 89, selling for 75 or reasonable offer. Located in Grand Rapids Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  5. What did it set you back and how long were you without the boat? Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  6. Does anyone have a person or company they recommend working with to have a boat cover made? I have a 21' walk around with an arch and want to have something made to fit that is good quality. I'm in Holland area, so grand rapids area would be most ideal but open to other spots if someone has and strong recommendation. Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  7. I bought the tube file box and don't really like it. Hard to get the fly and leader stuffed into them. It's turned into a box of my least used flies or back ups. My hot flies all stay attached to their respective flasher wound around a pool noodle. All of them get tossed into a bin together. Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  8. Tackle Boxes, Bins or Other Over the years I've evolved from using exclusively tackle boxes to just tackle bags to where I am currently, which is a combination of tackle boxes but mostly clear bins with clear snap on lids that I got from Costco. I have a bin for dispey's, a bin for flashers, bins for meat rigs, bins for the rigs I'm planning to use on my next trip (go to flasher/fly combo and spoons), bin for planer boards and a bin with laker gear. All of my spoons and plugs go into a special mate divided bin and then last but not least I have a tackle box with terminal tackle, extra line, batteries, spare parts for down riggers, etc.. When I get ready to go fishing it consists of loading whatever bins I will need for that trip. I feel somewhat organized, but I'm curious if anyone else does it a different way that they have found works well for them. It's that time of year that I'm going through my gear and always looking to become more organized and efficient, yet I'm the typical fisherman that tends to want to bring every possible lure/rod combo under the sun JUST IN CASE!

  10. My loss last year was a clean break about 2 feet above terminator. I'm thinking kink but didn't notice it. This year I had 1 break at ball after I moved it down a few feet and the one last weekend was a break at the water surface with ball down 90. I use the cannon connections and snubbers.. must be kinks I'm not seeing. Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  11. I've had 2 cannon balll break-offs this year and had 1 last year as well. I bought my riggers brand new in 2013 and have not replaced the cable before, I just keep putting new parts on where they break. Wondering how many of you change out your cable on a regular basis and also what you are using for replacement cable.
  12. Anyone have a recommendation for a charter out of Ludington or Manistee? I'm going in two weeks and want to go out on a charter that will be open to teaching while we fish. Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  13. Nice catch. That "steelhead" looks an awful lot like a king to me. No? Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  14. Do a haywire twist on both pieces just like you would if tieing to a swivel. You can shrink wrap the connection if you want to, I would think it won't matter much either way. Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  15. I had a good size boat almost capsize me yesterday driving by me and coming within about 20 yards of me. It won't be the last time, some folks just don't care. Sent from my SM-G935V using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
