  1. Ya second that, $150 sounds about right
  2. I had a beat up fly one day and a blue/glow squid. Stuck the fly head up inside the squid body and rigged it up. Worked well and one of those tricks to pull out when fishing slows.
  3. Priority1, I use a wide heavy rubber band on my nets. The kind that they use to hold fresh broccoli together at the market. Just slide it onto the end of the handle and push the net bag into it. I like it better than a release, I can hold more of the bag in it.
  4. Straight out the back unless the fish has other ideas then I take it where I can.
  5. Diamond hook sharpener. I think Normark makes it.? Look in Cabelas magazine or on their website.
  6. Caz and others, Why do you tie your flies on the heads? Have you found it works better than others or do you just like the way the flies look?
  7. I would be in for this also. Just a suggestion; the tip of the Thumb ports will give you a shot at Walleye and Silver.

    Life Jackets

    The ski type vest jackets are fine if they have the extra flotation up at the rear of the neck. I believe this style is a type II according to the USCG. It is a law in Michigan that any children under 7 years have a type II PFD on while boating. The "horseshoe" style that are orange typically are a type II also. They lack the strap that will keep them from slipping out of it though. Check the children's weight also so you can make sure the vest is rated for their poundage. This has a lot to do with how bouyant it will keep them. Mustang survival makes some real nice ones designed for children. Stearns also has some nice type II PFDs. Boaters world carries a good selection of both brands.
  9. 9'-6" work real nice for dipsies. The little extra stiffness is needed for the pull of the diver. These bigger rods work good for boards too but I prefer a shorter 7' stiffer rod.
  10. You need to get patten rights on it and find a company who will license the idea and product from you. Get ready to lay out some major $$$. Patent lawyers and marketing companies cost a lot. I have looked into this a little bit on some of my own ideas. You can check here franklinforge.com Good luck!
  11. Welcome to the site! You'll find some good info here.
  12. Seems like Huron may be comming back a little. Heard some reports of good silver being taken in lower and mid part. Not up to LM standards, but got to start somewhere:)
  13. Mark, What color dipsies are you running? Do you put a good stagger on them in the water column? I have had good luck with smaller lighter spoons behind dipsies in the past. I see that you are from Honor. Do you fish only Frankfort or do you trailer? Ever fish up in Glen Arbor out near Pyramid?
  14. I write the # of colors right on the reel plate with a contrasting color marker.
  15. Seemed to do best on the regular MI stingers.
