Classifieds/Buy/Sell / Depth Raider System FOR SALE
« on: June 13, 2010, 09:51:45 PM »
I have a Depth Raider Speed and Temp unit that I am selling.  Its 3 years old and came off my last boat. It comes with the Headunit with mounts and power wire, the Probe, and an upgraded "tube" style antenna.  I scrapped the RCA signal cable that came with it removing it from the old boat, but I do have a extra that can go with it if needed.(Any standard RCA cable will work for this).  You could also take my old coated downrigger cable if you like, though I would reccomend a new spool.  Both the screen and Probe are in excellent shape.  The probe was wired to be removed when not in use so its never been beat up or banged around.

$225.00 obo

You can pm, e-mail, or call me if interested.  (906) 250-1052
The equipment is in Marquette but I would be willing to ship if needed.    :beer:

Lake Superior / Upper Harbor Ghost Net REMOVED!
« on: May 24, 2010, 03:07:45 PM »
As of about a half hour ago, 3 South Shore Fishing Association members, a few other local fisherman, and the GLIFWIC Gill Net retrivel boat, along with Officer Heather Nagus were removing "at least a couple hundred feet" of old floating gill net from the Upper Harbor in Marquette.  :rock:

A HUGE thanks to the guys who found it, and most importantly, MARKED IT.  Between that and the GPS cooridants they were able to locate the net very easily and begin removal.  And another big thanks to GLIFWIC and Heather for their efforts to work with the sportfisherman to help clean up these old nets.  The process may not be perfect yet, but at least now when someone finds one of these things, we can have hope that it will actually be removed instead of forgotton.

EVERYBODY should have at least 1 marker of some sort on board that can be attached to a net and thrown overboard if nessecary.   This really helps the recovery efforts be successful. At a minimum, GPS lat/long will help.

Good fishing to everybody!  :beer:

Boat and Tackle Setups / Electric Fillet Knife
« on: May 12, 2010, 11:25:46 AM »
I am about tired of buying new batteries for my Rapala Rechargable Fillet Knife.  It works well, but at $20 a battery, and 2-3 new batteries a year, its getting a little old.  I also have to replace my 110v knife which has lasted me 5 years....I cant complain about that.  The plug-in knifes are great when an outlet is near, but I still like to have a rechargeable one for when I am not near power.(Comin back from the Rock)

Does anyone use a different brand of rechargeable knife that they like and isnt as hard on batteries?  Any reccomendations on any others I may not know about?  I refuse to buy another Rapala Rechargable.

Thanks for any ideas.  :beer:

Boat and Tackle Setups / Check These Out!!
« on: April 26, 2010, 12:19:14 PM »
I wanted to post this site for people to check out.    www.eyeflies.com  

The company is brand new and locally owned and operated.  The website is brand new and will constantly being updated with new products and info. I have used a lot of different trolling flies out there, but I definatly have a new favorite!  Very high quality materiels and craftmanship and a great choice of different colors and combos.  The hooksets are also very nice, with either single 5/0 hooks or double 4/0 hooks. Also availble are Glow Beads.  These arnt the sh*tty beads that glow for 5 minutes either.  These beads glow like a Moonshine spoon, and last for well over an hour or more!  They have all the features I like about other brands, and a few extra!

A nice feature of these flys is the inside diameter of the head is slightly larger than other brands.  This enables you to switch fly bodies with ease without switching leaders everytime.  Just slide the fly body off the leader and slide on a different one.  There are also UV color options, as well and the addition of the silicon strands in the skirts really makes them shimmer in the water!

If you are looking at replacing a few old flies or just want to add a few new ones to your box, check these out!  You wont be dissapointed!  Locally made and they catch fish!!  :beer:

Lake Superior / Marquette Area Nets
« on: April 26, 2010, 12:03:11 PM »
Just an FYI for everyone.....

For a couple weeks there has been a short net, maybe 100 yards, just inside the green can next to the Bubbler in the UH.  Its in real shallow, about 10-15 fow, and is marked well at 1 end and not so well at the other.

As of Friday, there was a new net in Upper Harbor.  Its out deeper, about 60-90 fow, straight out from the Picnic Rocks.  It looks like 2 or 3 nets strung end to end.  I saw about 5-6 net markers with flags out there.  These nets are marked very well( shock()) and can be seen from a good distance.  They are however running parrellel to shore, not perpindicular.

Nothing up by the White Rocks as of yet, and nothing Up North that I could see.

See you on the water!  :beer:

Lake Superior / Marquette Report 4-18
« on: April 19, 2010, 02:54:12 PM »
Upper Harbor Wall to Lower Harbor Wall. 6 a.m. to noon.  40-42 degrees on the surface, 38-40 degrees at the ball about 20' down. 2-2.4mph at the ball.  We fished from 20-50 fow. Riggers with long leads(60-100') and standard and Mag spoons in Green/Black. Slide Divers with 50-80' leads, 15-20 down with small gold or black spoons.  Highline, 1,2,3, and 5 color Leadcore on the boards with Maulers and Bodybaits mixed together.  Every rod on the boat caught at least 1 fish, so, the pattern was.....there was no pattern. Mostly Coho's, with a Steelie, King, and a Laker mixed in.

Its a "Secret" how big they were  wink()

Looks like all over the Big Pond fishing has started off great this year.  Lets hope it stays that way!  Good luck out there guys! See ya on the water!  :beer:

Boat and Tackle Setups / Depth Raider Antenna/Scotty Auto-Stop
« on: April 16, 2010, 08:48:53 AM »
I know a few guys use the Moor (tube) antenna with their Depth Raider so you can still use your auto stop beads.  The beads will not pass through the factory issued "spring" antenna.  I have been using this for years and its really nice.

It was my fault, but I ruined the wire going to my antenna this year and was going to order another one from Moor.  But I found this link that explains how to use the wire from the factory antenna, and hooking it to the "Tube" stlye mount.

It saved me 30 bucks, so I figured i would post it incase there is anyone looking to do the same. :beer:
