  1. Outdoorsman pro shop in jenison carries it as well Sent from my SM-G920P using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  2. If you scroll down it has yards as well. And a chart to cross reference diameters. The first inputs would be backing then braid would be the second. You can play with the numbers to see how much braid will fit woth different backing numbers Sent from my SM-G920P using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  7. It could have been.I thought the same thing at first. It had more green in the coloring and the tail is a little different. It did hit the 5 color and jump like crazy. It would be my biggest at 14+ lbs. I never really gave it a good second look just whipped it on the table and cut it up. Sent from my SM-G920P using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  8. Launched at 3 and headed out past all the blow boats and set up in 200 trolled west to 275 and back into 110 before finding many fish. Had a double in 102 fow. 21 lb king on wire diver on 1.5 180 back chartreuse meat rig and 14 lb king on 5 color with mixed veggie. Trolled north south in 90-100 fow for another couple hours and had another double on rigger down 80 on chrome spinny and green meat rig and same wire diver as before out 166. Both were 17-18 lb kings. Headed for the pier heads and marked fish into 75 fow with no takers so we pulled lines and boogied at about 845.

  9. Set down in 70 fow and trolled out to 125 and back. Marked tons of fish but no takers. Headed back to 150 with nothing to show for it so moved north a couple miles and set up in 20 fow and trolled back towards launch. Went 3 for 3 in 25-30 fow at 8-815. 5 color mixed veggie. 2 color helmut and rigger down 16 green plastic spoon. 2 shakers and a 5 lb coho.

  11. If we have a east wind tomorrow like i see on the forecast ill be out of port sheldon in the afternoon. Last spring i had good luck in 30-35 fow straight out in front of the powerplant. Sent from my SM-G920P using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  12. Diawa wilderness. I bought about a dozen when i first started and still have all of them. They are bulletproof. You can dind them for about 12 bucks i think. Heavy for dipsy's medium for core and mediun light for riggers. I have been slowly transitioning to shimano tdr and okuma copper rods. Those are also very affordable middle of the road rods. The diawas are being moved to the little tin boat and used as loaners. Sent from my SM-G920P using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  13. I run 1000 ft wire on 30 series reels no backing. I dont get too hung up on having my line counters calibrated perfect. I just let my divers out a little at a time and use the counter to be repeatable after i catch a fish. Hope that kinda makes sense. Also if running only 2 divers i usually run on 1.5 and if running 4 ill go 1 and 3 on settings. Sent from my SM-G920P using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
