  1. Long time no see everyone. Been really busy for the last several months here. Had a long layoff from my job and ended up leaving them and took another job for a few months. The beginning of May hired in at TRW Automotive in Saginaw. Pretty much been working 6 days a week there at the job before for forever it seems. Had this past week off for the GM shut down so i took full advantage and did some much needed fishing. Have had a handful of walleye trips in this summer on the bay which were all very successful. 5 trips, 5 complete limits, i cant complain.

    Anyhow, i fished Ludington Wed night through Fri morning. Took 43 fish in all. Early on 100-130 then 225-280 seemed to be productive. Everything we ran seemed to take fish so we didnt have to change much during our stay.

  2. It depends on the day Frank. Some days you bring em up and just the jighead is sticking out. Others theyre nipping and have just the stinger. Plus with the amount of body behind the main hook, its just too much dangling for my liking. I even cut a half inch off or so to shorten the bait up a bit. Leaves the stinger right even with the tail. I leave the stinger dangle.

  3. Not sure about Michigan but in Wisconsin it is the law to have a set of cutters capable of cutting the downrigger cable. We lost 1 fisherman and almost 2 other fisherman in 2010 accident' date=' when they tried to free their gear instead of cutting it loose. WI OUTDOOR NEWS article

    Sea Grant states on their web site "IF you get tangled in the net cut the cable and attach a float marked with your name and phone number and they will return the gear to you." They also state that once the down rigger cable is cut loose, the gear will drop out of the net without issue. SEA GRANT

    LOL...Seems like a good idea, but i doubt anyone hung up with waves crashing is gonna take the time to cut the cable and attach a float to it. They wanna get the cable cut to save their lives and their boats. I guess i could see that under the right scenerio, but with most, i gotta say its bye bye. I cant even fathom trying to hold onto that and put a float on if it were rough out.

  4. Best bet is to use the alerts as a guide and then find them for yourself in the daylight plot them. Then you know exactly where they are and can navigate them safely. Id recommend you have a QUALITY pair of side cutters at easy grasp incase you got caught up in one. The force can pull the transom down and allow water to come in and sink your boat turning a bad scenerio into a horrible one.

  5. Fished the river the last couple days. TONS of fish in the system. Your going to sort through allot of small fish to get to the keepers. Pulled 8 yesterday and 5 today, so 13 keepers outta probably 100+ fish boated. 3/8-1/2 oz. jigs with minnow imitating rubber bodies, twister tails and drop shot type worms are all working well.

    Ill post a pic when i get them up of the limit i caught.

  6. Scouted a bunch last night, didnt see a bird flying or around any of the water i normally see them on. Seen a few in one location, but that was pretty much it. So, i was a bit dumbfounded as to what to do this morning since we were gonna hunt. So, we just decided on the field we hunted tuesday morning. Set up there and seen some EARLY, im guessing kicked off the roost. A few more small flocks off in the distance, nothing major, pretty slow. Had a pair come in eventually and we both killed one. About 10 minutes later we had another small group come in and i killed two and my dad wiffed.("Shoulda got a benelli Dad!!!" -its an inside joke we have):lol: Its now 8 am. Never seen another bird the remainder of the morning. We bagged em up at 10 and headed outta the field. Another great morning of cupped and locked with the ol man...life is good.:)




  7. Welp, it was a gorgeous morning to be out in the field. Got the decoys set and we settled in the standing corn. Not much early activity and then around 7:30ish we heard the first shots to the east. Someone was on the X and got some great shooting with several pounding volleys. Finally around 8 my Dad heard a honk and to the east there was a pair. I gave a few contented clucks and they locked on and glided in the entire length of the field. Banked right into the pocket picture perfect and when their toenails were dragging the stubble Jeff and Chris laid the hammer down and we had two birds in hand. Turns out that was Chris' first goose ever, so congrats to Chris. Unfortunately that was all the action for us this morning, but still a great time never the less. A few birds bowed up and good company, ill take that any day. Thanks for the invite this morning Jeff, much appreciated.



  8. I was gonna head over to the west side this week, but with sustained N and NE winds the water is ice cold up close and the wave focast sucked. Figured id have to run offshore or do combat at the peir head. With the winds, offshore is not an option, so we decided to bag the trip for the week.
