  1. Thanks for the report Ron. If the salmon arent slammin that let'c catch some perch!
  2. Thanks for the report Scott! I hope to get down to St. Jo at least once this Spring. After hearing your report, it sounds like the sooner the better. WTG!
  3. Welcome aboard Flyman. Years ago I fished for the perch a few times out of Saugutuck and South Haven. I look forward to hearing your updates as the spring and summer progress. You will love this site. It's great that we can learn from each other!
  4. That is also my wife's favorite :-( My second TV will be tuned in to the deadliest catch. I agree with Joe, it looks attractive for a young man. I'm kind of glad I didn't know about the opportunity when I was young (dumb) enough to do it.
  5. Welcome aboard Charles. It wont be long now until we breath that crisp Lake air! Tight line and screaming reel are soon to demand our attention.
  6. Welcome Rob! This is a great site with lots of info. I am sure you will enjoy it.
  7. Hi Kevin, I started last year in a 16.5 Lund and averaged 3 fish a trip with only 6 lines out. The guys with the bigger boats do much better. The advice on this website has been INVALUABLE so check out the previous threads by using the search tool. I fish out of Muskegon and never go too far out. I also have 2 manual riggers. Most of my fish came off of 5 colors of lead core off of big planer boards but caught fish on divers, riggers and lead core. What baits are you using?
  8. Welcome aboard Chris. I grew up fishing on the Mississippi and then fished Michigan rivers and inland lakes before starting to chase the salmon addictively last year. It is a hoot! You will receive tons of good informaion from this site. Good Luck with the Cohos. They should be hot soon down south.
  9. Welcome Gene. You are correct in your assessment that this is a great site with lots of info. I also fish out of a small boat. Last year was my first full year salmon fishing on the Great Lakes. With all of the help from this site, it turned out to be a very successful one. Ask any questions you have about salmon fishing. You will be suprised by how many experienced fisherman will answer you.
  10. Thanks everybody for the updates. I CANT wait tp get on the water.
  11. It's kind of scary. They drug test first mates, but not brain surgeons. mmm Sounds like a great summer job though!
  12. Although I have been on several charters through the years, my first full year of salmon fishing on Lake MI was last year. Thanks to all the help from this site even the first year was very good.
  13. Good job guys, I lived on Swan Lake for a few years and there is good ice fishing there. One Sunday afternoon I watched a 42 inch pike carried off of Swan Lake. Not to take a fisherman's word, I measured it myself.
  14. I have always wanted to try fishing for whitefish too, so thanks for the info. I'll have some time next week so may give it a shot.
  15. Mike, Let me know If the Stinger Killer Blue Dolphin does go into production. I would want a couple more. Clyde
  16. My best spoon this year by far was the Nitro Area 51. It took fish at various levels throughout the season. Another favorite was the stinger killer that looked a lot like Mikes killer dolphin but was blue and yellow. I haven't found the name of it. It was one given out at the Stinger tournament.
  17. Jarod, Congrats on not getting skunked. Maybe we can get out just one more time yet this season. . . Saturday is looking like a possiblity. Good luck.
  18. Thanks Jarod, That late bite is coming, just keep saying, that late bite is coming. Good job on the 3-3.
  19. Captain Ron, Thanks so much for your reports thru the summer. They have been of great assistance to neophytes like myself. I still hope to get out at least one more time. I hope this weather brings some cold water in toward shore soon.
  20. Hi Jim, Thanks for the report. I was also out washing lures with you Sunday night. I finally caught a nice steelhead on 5 colors in 85 feet. I didn't lose any or have any knock offs. It ended up being my worst trip since May, but it beats working!
  21. Thanks for the report Randy. WTG. I really thought they might be a little closer to shore today.
  22. Nice job Mike, I took one look at the combat zone on Saturday out of Muskegon and went out to 75 fow. We went four for five taking three of the four on either glo watermelon or watermelon stingrays. The extra fish we would have caught in the combat zone didn't seem worth it to me. Nice to hear that you didn't have any problems in the traffic.

    EZ Fish Chowder

    Thanks Frank, I will definately try that. I have a lot of salmon from this summer and wondering what I can do with it all. I love soup and stews. Usually I make a couple batches of whitefish stew in the winter so I hope to get a couple of good salmon stew recipes.
  24. Great job!! It's always a pleasure to see kids who have discovered the joy of a screamin reel.
