  1. I have m6 graph set up properly and mark fish like that to, I was told thats how white fish mark ,their air bladders double mark. just what I was told by an ole charter captain.
  2. Sparky I'm sorry I didn't mean to bash you and I said you are required to monitor tourney control not that you are required to have a marine radio to fish tourneys and you can say what you want its a basic safety piece of equipment to have on your boat . but enough said on that issue that Saturday was a total mess and its a bummer that some didn't get to weigh in there fish I'm sure if the wmfl is going to happen again next year some more rules should be established . again sorry if you feel bashed that was not my intent I don't even fish those events.

  3. Sparky 30 every tourney on the lake requires you to be able to monitor tourney control ,when you run to another port YOU are responsible to monitor tourney control. another thing is you really should have a marine radio on board anyways if you are on lake Michigan there's lots of dead spots out there for cell reception just a smart thing to have.

  4. 27 sea ray amberjack with twin 350's 5 hr fishing trip $100 I had a 20 footer before that had a 305 in it that took around $80 per trip ( Marina Gas in both ) the 27 is a lot more comfortable and a lot more room to fight fish the extra $20 is worth it.
  5. Blake, I used to get my blanks painted by Lakeland tackle in minisota when I tried to paint my own blanks I could not get the paint to stick to the silver plating , they had some secret coating to allow the paint to stick. My air brush had a few different tips I used them for finer or broader painting,i got my paint from a taxidermist supply web site,

    I got my stickers from witch craft tape. hope this helps you another guy to ask is larry from big lake lures he paints his own stuff I think he is lure maker on the web site. best of luck jimmy

  6. went to the lake tonight and there is one dock in at the DNR ramp however there is still a large chunk of ice in the middle of lake mac yet but it will be open soon for sure the channel is open and the ice flows are off shore tonight all I saw was open water past the pier heads . soon very soon !!
  7. Isn't any one interested in this tourney , the rivers are full of fish and the high water will be down this weekend , what's the hang up? Would more people fish it if it were open to the public instead of just steel headers? please comment we are trying to grow this tourney. Jimbobber Holland Steel headers Board member.

  11. Bob , don't know if you got your answer about the terminating end of the wire , the knot I use is simple create a loop with the wire put that thru the eye of the swivel then over the swivel tighten that up, then above the swivel tie two overhand knots and tighten , I also put a beed above the swivel when your done fishing close the swivel and reel against the beed til tight .hope this helps jimbobber
