Thanks, guys!  Appreciate it.

Chris, best time to go is on a day when the wind isn't blowing!  :nuts:  Typically, our best weather is going to be from mid June through Mid August.   Though as we all know windy days can happen anytime of the year.   Fishing success is fairly consistent out there all season,  but the location may change where you find them on the reef.   Most years were fishing deeper early in the season, and shallow later in the season.  My personal favorite time of year would be July and Early August.  May and June are good fishing as well, but it's COLD, and I HATE the cold... 

Trips are $1375 for 1-5 people.  I don't mix groups,  so if you book a trip,  you and your crew are the only ones on the boat.  All equipment and gear included, as well as fish cleaning and packaging.

Many of our dates, especially weekends, will be booked 8-12 months in advance.  Half the weekends in August 2017 are already fully booked, and July is gettin there.  Usually by the start of our season in May, we are fully booked for the rest of the year for Stannard Rock.  So if it's something you think you want to do, the earlier you can pick your date the better.

More info can be found here, www.daybreakfish.com  or feel free to call me anytime and I can answer any questions you have.   :thmb:

South Shore Fishing Association / Re: THANK YOU
« on: June 15, 2016, 08:23:53 AM »
We're glad to help, Andy!  But the real thank-yous should go to the people who participated in the event as well as the many sponsors that made it possible.  90 people spent a long morning in the pooring rain to help support these two causes. Lots of laughs and smiles were had by all,(and some Crown Royal).  We are very happy after the first year of doing this event to be able to donate $2000 to the SSFA Vets Fishing Day, and $2000 to the Marquette County Veterans Alliance to help with the Traveling Vietnam Wall coming to Marquette next week. :usa:

Thanks again to all who participated, donated, and sponsored this event. We've got some improvements to make for next year, and hopefully a much better weather day as well!

This is going to be a great event that will be a lot of fun, and will support 2 very worthy causes.  The South Shore Fishing Association Veterans Fishing Day, which many of you know as one of the best days of the summer! And the Marquette County Veterans Alliance, who are the ones bringing the Vietnam Wall to town this summer.  A fun day on the course with hunting and fishing themed holes, contests, and prizes that will help support these local veteran events.

looking to upgrade my electronics... anyone have reviews for a new gps fishfinders... :usa:

 Go to a big sporting good store and try every brand you can get your hands on. Find out which brand you like best, and then buy the most expensive one of that brand you can afford.  There really isn't any junk out there anymore, so the only persons opinion that matters is yours.  :thmb:

Run em 15-17" behind a 00 dodger, and 2" off the bottom.  Laker Candy.  I actually prefer "peanuts" to spin n glows, but both work.   :thmb:

You would kick yourself if you didn't get the HP version.  Much nicer than the old style.  I'm on my 4th full season with the HP's and still not a single issue, and still on the original battery's for the counters.

Been using it for years.  You'll wonder why you havnt been...  Releases slide much easier and it adds a bit of a "shock absorber" between the boat and the planer.   :thmb:

Boat and Tackle Setups / Re: Best downrigger release?
« on: July 10, 2015, 09:58:45 AM »
We sell more of the Scotty Power Grip releases than all others put together. Mostly the #1171 model. http://www.scotty.com/fishing-gear-equipment/line-releases/powergrip-plus.htm

I've used these releases for 10+ years with zero issues.  I use them exactly the same way the link that Chris attached shows, the line right at the small black line in the release.  Make sure the "tension adjuster" is pulled out or they will give you some headaches.  It's the best release I've found/used in many, many years of fishing the Great Lakes.

Same here.  I've used them all.  For me, nothing comes close to the reliability, consistency, and ease of use like the Scotty.  I never drag shakers, never have the line cut into it, and never have false releases.  If you do, its user error, not the release.  :thmb:

Nice video !  Hows the fishing on the rock.  Are they deep or shallow, Jigs or spoons  Colors ?

Brian B

Fishing has been great offshore.  36-37 degree water temps as of yesterday.  We found fish as shallow as 20', with lots of action between 20-70 feet of water.  We have found quite a few deeper as well, but I prefer to fish as shallow as I can if there are bigger fish up there.  Jigs and spoons have both produced 30lb. class fish lately.  Best spoons have been Moonshine casting spoons in Agent Orange, Watermellon, or Crabface patterns.  1-3oz jigs(depending on depth) in White or White/Chartreuse have been best, with tails in Glow or white.  I've made 8 trips so far this season, and we've had easily 30 fish over 20lbs in the boat already, with 3 right at 30lbs.  Many of those have come shallower than 50', mostly just North of the lighthouse.  Every single one was released as we haven't kept a fish over 8lbs all season.

**WARNING**  There are 3, 1000' long DNR Gill nets out there right now.  Yes, I said DNR Gill nets....  All 3 are North Northwest of the lighthouse.  Very well marked and flags show up on Radar very well.  :thmb:
