South Shore Fishing Association / SSFA Stream Cleanup Project
« on: May 04, 2012, 04:20:57 PM »
As mentioned during the Spring Meeting, South Shore Fishing Association (SSFA) will be sponsoring a stream cleanup project.  We are planning to have the event on Sunday, May 20, 2012 from approximately 10 am to 12 pm (noon).  The event will take place along Whetstone Brook in the City of Marquette.

The goal of the event is to get kids involved in learning and participating in the cleanup of one of our local streams that plays an important role in our local fishery.  We are inviting all SSFA members, their children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends to come out and participate.  We have also contacted Big Brothers/Big Sisters to invite them to participate as well.  At this time we are planning to have a fisheries biologist from Lake Superior Watershed Partnership (LSWP) participate in the event to talk to the kids about the importance of clean streams and the role they play in supporting Lake Superior fish.

We will be meeting at the City of Marquette Commons Building located on Third Street, one half block south of Washington Street at 10 am, prior to beginning the stream cleaning.  Lake Superior Watershed Partnership will give a short talk during the meeting.  We will then travel to the stream to begin the cleaning project.  When we are done, we will meet everyone at back at the City of Marquette Commons Building located on Third Street, ½ block south of Washington Street.  Refreshments and lunch will be provided for everyone who participates in the project.  Garbage bags and rubber gloves will be provided by SSFA and LSWP.

If you have any questions please call or email Mylan Koski at (906) 360-4027 / mkoski@trimediaee.com or Bill Flanigan at Bill@window-store.com / (906) 362-5165.

Hope to see you there!

South Shore Fishing Association / USCG Auxiliary Boat Inspection Day
« on: April 26, 2012, 08:25:42 PM »
As announced at the SSFA Spring Meeting, Steve Turausky and another person from the USCG Auxiliary will be conducting free boat inspections on Saturday May 5th from 9 am to 12 pm (noon) for SSFA members.  The inspections will take place in the Lower Harbor parking lot, so bring your boat down before the start of the boating season and get it checked over.  

This is a voluntary inspection service being offered by USCG Auxiliary personnel.  There will be no tickets for violations or deficiencies issued during the inspection.  My understanding is that if your boat does pass inspection, they are able to provide you with an inspection sticker and/or documentation indicating that your boat has passed inspection for the 2012 boating season.  If you have any questions post them here or send me a PM.  

Also, we’ll have the new SSFA sweatshirts and t-shirts available for sale if you didn’t get one at the spring meeting.  Hope to see you there!

Boat and Tackle Setups / Rod Repair
« on: May 02, 2011, 11:37:42 AM »
Does anyone in the Marquette area do rod repair or rod building that could replace a couple of eyes (second from end) on a couple rods (downrigger and dipsy) of mine?  They are not expensive rods I would just like to get the eyes replaced.

Thanks

Boat and Tackle Setups / Downrigger Ball Coating Suggestions
« on: August 24, 2010, 07:25:33 PM »
Just poured some new 10 lb cannon balls.  Looking for input regarding what coatings you guys have used and liked. I've used the plasti-dip from Menards on some old balls.  I've also used plain black spray paint.  Both are ok, but looking for other ideas.  Can you buy materials off the shelf to make a thick tough coating like that found on a store bought cannon ball?

Thanks
