  1. Strange. I just called and they picked up right away. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  2. Did you try Big Jon? Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  3. Definitely check your diver tension. The shock absorber will help but wire has zero stretch so it’s important that the diver releases and then lets the drag do the work. I try to keep the diver release as light as possible, sometimes having to pull it back in, tighten the tension, and reset it because it was too light and tripped on its own.

  4. I have to agree with jdh. All of those could definitely be your issue. You could also have a sharp point in your rod rollers or tip. Where are you breaking off? After the dipsy, at the rod tip, etc? That will help diagnose. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  5. He’s referring to half-hitching the rubber band around the wire directly in front of the reel, then hook the rubber band around the reel or handle. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  6. You must be a Whitmer supporter. The people at Tippy were fishing from the shore. ZERO to do with motors. [emoji849] Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  7. Still no logic to explain why a motorboat is prohibited, but no power is acceptable. Can’t make that argument can you? Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  8. Please explain with some logic why someone can go out on a canoe, sailboat, kayak, rowboat, etc. but not a motorboat. Not defensive rhetoric. Logic. I’ll wait. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  9. I typically have to procure secondary services such as parts and gasoline for my truck too but here I am able to drive it. No logical sense. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  11. My boat is 26’ and I have some distance between the helm and stern. What I did was move the fish hawk to a Big Jon electronics mount and put it on the track near my rigger. My thought is near the rigger is where I want to be able to see it when adjusting depth. Not at the helm. I have a Bluetooth compatible fish hawk so I mounted an old iPhone at the helm and connected the two via Bluetooth. I still get the same info as the fish hawk display and can the adjust speed as needed. I’ve been running it like this for about two years. So far I’m happy with it.

  12. Because dipsies absolutely crush fish. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  13. They’ll pull 10 colors and more. Even in heavy waves. They do exactly what they’re supposed to; stay on the line and don’t release. They come off when you push the button though, nice and easy. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  14. I tried it and went to the lock jaw instead. Sams pro didn’t work well for us. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  15. We scooped one up out of the lake last year. Not real impressed. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  16. 600 for all 4 and I’ll pick up. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  17. This won't help much now that the season is nearly over. I just figured out that the app was back up and running. ? I found a net south of Whitehall this summer from about 60'-100'. Don't recall the exact depth or coords now but was very poorly marked. Only a buoy at each end. And I have yet to see ANY buoy with radar reflectors as mentioned above. We need to use the regs to our advantage and make sure they are following them.
  18. If you get more details please let us know. I'm in that area. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman mobile app
  19. Spot on. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman mobile app
  20. Three people can be tricky. With guys who know their job, it's doable though. Driver keeps driving. Guy hand lining only worries about hand lining. Now comes the tricky part. Who nets? The guy fighting the fish. He has to drop the rod (or hand it off to the driver) and grab the net. Much easier with a fourth person but it's still manageable. Good luck!

  21. 18-24ish feet. Handlining is the downside. There are days when I run long leads off the ball. Slide Diver makes a diver to make long leads easier. All because there are days when the fish want longer leads. Why wouldn't long leads be an advantage? Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman mobile app
  22. My first preference is Tekota 700LCs. Daiwa 47LCAs have also worked really well for us. The Daiwas are now our high divers Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman mobile app
  23. I realize this thread is old but this is perfect for this video we just put together on fly "tying." A tutorial for anyone who wants to give it a shot but doesn't know where to start. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman mobile app

  25. I realize this post is a couple months old and you've probably already developed a solution For anyone else considering the same in the future: An iPad, iPod, phone, etc. still needs wifi or cellular signal for gps. Otherwise it has no way to communicate with the satellites. You could possibly use your phone as the signal source though.
