  1. Neil fixed my riggers for next to nothing when they broke down.
  2. Great advice. When you get a fish landed and have to put them back out, let the full core out the back, hook the board on, let the board float back that 75 to 100' then tighten the line and it will pull out around your dippsey. The Church/Walleye boards are the best option. Ken.
  3. Nice looking Browns you've got there Timmy.
  4. Thanks Bill. I have two Canon DSLRs. A 10d and a 1D. I used the 1D and a 70-200 mm sigma lens. with a 1.4 Extender. I had to crop this pic quite a bit to get it close, so It look a bit soft. I'm going to keep trying to get a real close one but, as soon as he sees me he heads the other way. He will dive out in 25' of water and come up 75 yards away. I wish they would stay longer, they are beautiful foul.
  5. Stick with the two riggers and add two dippseys, then add two Full core rods. The Gander in Lansing carries the Gander Mountain brand and they are comparable to Heartland in make and price. "Warning" buying rods and reals can be addictive, before long you'll have six and want ten. If you want to have fun, learn a few things, and meet a few members the tournaments that Rich runs are a great way. http://www.greatlakesfisherman.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=77 hope to see ya, Ken.
  6. Every year shortly after ice out the Loons stop by our lake on there trip North. I was hopping to get a better shot but, he was a bit out there. They stay any where from 1 to 3 weeks. As soon as the first Jet Ski hits the lake there gone.
  7. All I ever use is Zip Lock bags. I swipe them from my wife when shes not looking.
  8. It looks great Bill. I love the looks of a nice Hard Top.
  9. Mike, My aunt owns the Raber Bay Landing Resort. We have been going up there for the last 10 years. The fishing has really fallen off in the past two years. Here's a few shots from a few years back. The Tall ugly one on the right is me. This is my boy with his biggest (around 16 pounds), He's the same one as in my Avatar (now 12-14" taller) Ken.
  10. #4 is the most common for us , but I've landed many on the #5s. I used to run a #3 behind my Dipsey rig with good results (before flys/flasher where so common). They all work great in the late summer.
  11. This was taken just over a week ago ( march 28 08) North west of Harbor Springs.
  12. Thanks Bill, That is the knot that was on the rods. Tim, I like the tubing idea. Nick, I've been told the same thing. I really look forward to using these poles. Thanks all. Ken.
  13. I've bought 2 Wire rigs for this year. It looks like the previous owner (A well known charter caption) used a surgeons end loop to connect the wire to the swivel. Is this what is typically used? Thanks, Ken.
  14. Congrats, Bill. Lake Erie Walleye I'm guessing?
  15. I have a couple of good pics of My son and his Grand dad however were are expirencing difficulty finding our camera download cable as my 10yr old son has is own digital camera and insist on taking all the pictures. He does well, Hopefully we find the cable and I can share a couple of pics.
  16. I have never tried that but, one year up at Detour we had great luck during the slow drums of mid day running a glow squid behind a dippsey with no flasher.
  17. Great video! It looked like he was taking a Storm WildEye Swim Shad and cutting it in half. http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/product/standard-item.jsp?id=0011518316172a&navCount=1&podId=0011518&parentId=cat601348&masterpathid=&navAction=jump&cmCat=MainCatcat20166-cat601348_TGP&catalogCode=IJ&rid=&parentType=index&indexId=cat601348&hasJS=true&hasJS=true Those guys kept calling them fish small. They where hogs compared to Lake Michigan Fish. Ken.
