  1. Nice job on the fish. I've been fishing too shallow lately out of Port Sheldon, Grand Haven, Muskegon. Marking all kinds of fish 30-60' FOW and no hits. Conrgats on new Lund, Tung!! Looks great. Awesome picture. Maybe we'll see you out there. Please what kind of Lund?
  2. May sound funny, but I'm for real. Are Big Weenie glow meat strips "thicker" and cut differently than other meats. They don't fit into a Diabolical brand meat rig. I've trimmed them down and they crumble and fall apart within 30 minutes. Are the Big Weenie meat rigs designed to hold thicker meats?
  3. Im going to try it thanks. Been marking plenty of fish and trying to increase the catch.
  4. For trolling 40 degree Lake Michigan for salmon early spring: For any Rapala shallow or deep been using loop knot. Dreamweaver size 3 snap swivel for Thin Fin, Thin Fish, Hot N Tot, etc. Started 30# mono, now 12# mono from boards various length coppers. Anybody out there feel strongly about snap only (no swivel) for these lures? Been reading about bass guys only using snap for crankbaits? Does it really matter? Trying to keep lures changing and fingertips warm at same time...
  5. New 7" Garmin bought in August is awesome. Just take a minute to learn about your new transducer "cone width" at bottom of "radar" cone. 4" Lowrance was twice the width of coverage at bottom of cone than 7" Garmin. After purchase I learned: At 100' depth, 4" Lowrance cone coverage is approx 82' wide. 7" Garmin is approx 41" wide. But Garmin shows way better detail? But for trolling Great Lakes you want wider coverage for sure. I'm now shelling out another $100 for new Garmin transducer to get 82' cone width at 100'. My fault; should have checked. Also Garmin does way more stuff and yet way easier to learn. Plus I've now got super great GPS to get straight home in fog and/ or rain storm etc. Plus Garmin customer support is excellent.

  6. Also drags on the new Okuma 55's are silky smooth but it's a big heavy reel. A bit large for any younger kids.
  7. I was able to fix Okuma drag issues with a trip to Tuna's Reel Troubles in Ludington, Mich after same type issue after drowning a few fish on planers. Couldn't find "sweet spot" on drag - either too loose and line would keep coming out, or too tight and then fish would drown because reel wouldn't let line out. Tuna has website and will ship. Also premium Tackle store Chuck's nearby and they sell reels and have Tuna put new drags in New reels too.
  8. Saugatuck Mon Sept 14 After 16 yr hiatus - Been out approx 70 times trolling Lake Mich between March '19 and today. Learned a little bit more each time. Landed an 18 and 23# King this year. Fish Hawk was the game changer. But today truly was memorable. Went 3 for 4 in front of pier heads -all sheephead only- over 6lbs - after no sheephead in 69 trips. Fish Hawk showed us the perfect speed for those nasty looking things. Maybe try Grand Haven one more time... Sent from my LM-Q710.FGN using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  13. There's about 170 ft to 200 feet of cable on each downrigger. I believe the cannon swivel bases fit into berts track. Please to verify, may I suggest you call Bert's and call Cannon. You can get phone numbers on their websites. Also you can text them. Cannon is now owned by Johnson. You want to ask if the cannon swivel bases fit in that track. The downriggers are located in Zeeland Michigan just Southwest of Grand Rapids. I would be happy to drive a reasonable amount of time to meet you halfway, maybe a couple of hours or so. Where are you located please? Thanks for asking
  14. NOW SOLD THANKS Cannon Swivel Bases included. 4 ft adjustable arms. Adjustable Rod holders. 10 months old. Work perfectly. Paid $800. Will sell for $400. Contact Luke at 623-451-7180 Phone or Text Email - [email protected] Sent from my LM-Q710.FGN using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  16. Holland Channel had plenty of ice floating in it last Tues. Friday was mostly open but still some smaller ice chunks. Today Tues April 2, 2019 we slowly bumped our way thru small chunks and almost out to end of channel to view huge waves crashing across BOTH piers. We turned around for third time in a week with brand new boat.Some minor scratches to decals on both sides of bow? We're here to catch fish not be a freaking ice breaker.

  17. Great classified site. Lots of stuff I'm looking for. But some ads are 13 years old and items supposedly are still for sale or not reported as sold? Maybe you could auto delete after 3 years or so ?
