  1. Thanks, was a good feeling when 5 of the 6 rods I had in the water caught fish. Only one that did not go was the other Board running another 5 color Lead core with a mixed veggie.

Got a late start due to the weather, but ended up 5 for 6. 5 lb Laker on 5 color lead mixed veggies spoon in 100 FOW 6 lb Steelhead on DR Moonshine Happee Meal 35 Down on rigger 13 lb King on Wonder Bread Dipsy with a Wonder Bread J-Plug set on 1 1/2 70 line counter 10 lb King on Orange Dipsy with Carmel Dolphin spoon set on 1 1/2 60 line counter 12 lb King on DR 50 down with Moonshine Happee meal
  3. Went 3 for 3. 8 lb Steelhead on Moonshine Happee Meal, 47 down in 140 FOW 7 lb Lake Trout on Wonderbread J-Plug/Wonderbread Dipsy set on 1 1/2, 70 back 150 FOW 4 lb Lake Trout on Blue Crinkle Fly/Pearl Flasher/Orange Dipsy set on 1 1/2, 80 back 165 FOW

    Traded in a Starcraft Islander for a 2014 Robalo R222 with a 200 hp Yamaha. Handles the waves on Lake Michigan very well. Love the ride and layout of this boat. Fishes great. The Yamaha is very quiet and fuel efficient. Other than limited protection from the elements (I have a T-Top) I have not complaints. Positively love this boat.
  5. How much gear lost this year?

    Lost Two Walker Deeper Divers Two LJ J-Plugs Three Moonshine Spoons Four Snubbers One Ten Color Lead Core Two Treble hooks due to failed Split rings Found One Churches Walleye board (been out there a while, faded and phone number un-readable) One down rigger release wrapped in seaweed on the beach after the big blow One orange barrel just under the surface in the scum line (how that got out there I will never know)
  6. Went 2 for 4 this morning. First one came at 7AM on a SWR 65 DWN in 110 FOW on a Moonshine Flounder Pounder. Second one on a Flounder Pounder 55 DWN in 100 FOW at 7:30AM. Marked lots of fish but the bite was not on.

    Sorry I'm late with a reply. They were hitting everything. Spoons (anything green, Flounder Pounder), Wonder bread J plug, and Flies anything (Blue and Green). Hope you did well and stayed out of the net.

    barely, with a single small 6in X 18in buoy. BTW Fishing was great last week in the 130 to 150 range. We would locate the bait balls and do large circles in and around them and picked up nice mixed bags of Lakers, Kings and Steel from 90 down al the way up to 40 down. Full core was the best producer. Fish were full of alewives and the females full of eggs. Good Luck.

    Net in 100 FOW straight out and slightly north of the White Lake channel. Net was being set on 09-07-12 around 11 AM.
  11. Salmon Strikes! - Downrigger Footage

    Great video. Like the rods rippin in the inserts.
  12. Spoon Color Chart...

    www.catchmorefish.com I believe is the website for Wolverine Tackle who make Silver Streak spoons. I did the same thing. I have a note book with color charts from all the major spoon manufacturers so when I hear on the radio of a "hot" color that I can at least throw out something close in color if I don't have the exact spoon in my tackle box.
  13. gps antenna needed

    You could try Angling Outpost in Whitehall. PH# 231-766-0589
  14. whitehall fish cleaning stations

    You will need the Ramp permit to use the fish cleaning station. The launch area is regularly patrolled and checked for permits. Annual permits are $50 and can be purchased at Montague City Hall or Johnson's bait shop (it's on the way to the Launch Ramp/ Cleaning Station.
  15. When you come out of the channel to the north you will see a couple of dunes on the shore line known as the "Dolly's". Streight out from the northern most dune in 65 feet of water there is a shipwreck. This ship wreck is a popular site for diving and it may be too early for it to be marked with a bouy. This shipwreck also catches rouge commercial nets that have broken free. Other than that there is not much structure. The channel depth is about 8 feet at the Lake Michigan end and about 17 feet at the White Lake end.
