  1. We just moved from Florida to Wisconsin, and all of the boats, including ours, have been used extensively in salt water. My 2 cents: - yamaha outboards are the best for saltwater imo. The others hold up, if maintained really well. Yamahas seem to be able to run better for longer with minimal maintenance. -check the wiring for corrosion -check the trailer for corrosion - if it were me, I'd replace the thermostats and change all the fluids immediately. As long as it was flushed and rinsed it shouldnt be a big deal, most important things to check are wiring and trailer for signs of corrosion or neglect. All repairable, just depends how much time you want to invest. Sent from my SM-G950U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  2. I was thinking about doing that actually, may give it a shot in may or so. I do enjoy reading, so I'll pick up that book. Thanks for the advice! Sent from my SM-G950U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  4. I also should mention that I have some trolling stuff, like planer boards and big trolling plugs that we would use to troll for king mackerel. Is any of this usable up here?
  5. Hey everyone, Got a couple newbie questions- we just moved to Madison, WI from North Florida and I'm trying to learn the basics of salmon fishing. I'm used to either fishing shallow grass flats for inshore fish, or heading 30 miles offshore to find 100' of water for grouper and snapper, so I apologize for my ignorance! We have a 2007 Parker 1801 center console with a yamaha f115 that I'd like to bring over to Lake Michigan when the weather is good. - downriggers- obviously electric are much more convenient, but is there any reason to not get a set of uses manual ones? Do you have to pull the ball up every time you get a fish on? - seems like as soon as ice is out, you can find them in the harbors. Is this correct? -any advice on tackle selections? I dont want to break the bank, but would appreciate any basic advice on colors/setups. I know this is probably a giant topic, just looking for the basics. Ive dine a bit of research online but there is so much info out there it can be overwhelming. Any other advice is greatly appreciated! -alex
