  1. I was fishing Saturday in front of Kenosha and had 2 of the birds join us 16 miles offshore. One of them stayed in the boat the whole trip eating all the spiders and bugs he could find. I hand fed him 2 big Orb Weaver spiders, which was really cool, and he stayed on board for most of the run back to shore.
  2. Looks like a clipped adipose. That would be a King. Nice fish either way!
  3. That is definitely a Steelie, and a very big one at that. Nice work!

    3 holes?

    Jimmy spoons are my favorite rattle spoons. The ones in the picture look like Northport Nailer blanks. Are they painted on the back side?

    Those are rattle spoons.
  6. Incredible! I'm on the wrong side of the lake this year. Looks like all mag spoons you were running?

    Magnum Metlz Downrigger

    I haven't used them but a lot of guys are running them on Lake Michigan because our fishery has turned into a deep water fishery the last few years and the fish are down deep as well. The guys that make them were the original Vector guys and they make some durable products. If they make the long arms and say they will hold up to 25# weights, they should be fine.
  8. 600 bucks. I'm in Illinois. They haven't had a ton of use, but have some sun fading on the motor housings and rod holder caps from sitting on the boat in a slip all summer.
  9. I have 2 big jons that fit your requirements except I have a depth raider installed instead of fish hawk. 4' booms, dual holders, ball cradle and swivels...plus mounting hardware and backer plates. Everything works great. Let me know if he's interested...
  10. Thank you for this report. I agree we need a better understanding before we allow millions of fish to be transplanted that will be competing with our sportfish for food for most of their long lives.

    Mono ~ clear or green

    In my experience with underwater downrigger video I have taken, the darker line is much more visible. I am not a fish, so this could mean nothing to your fishing success...
  12. Thanks for the update. I will be following this.
  13. If the sale falls through on the bases, I will take them off your hands. Thanks.

    tying 2 colors of lead to copper

    I use a 35# spro swivel for mine. They're small enough to fit through the levelwind. Uni knot on the leadcore, haywire twist on the copper with heat shrink over the twist. The hybrid is not only easier to deploy, but has a different characteristic on turns and speed changes.
