Brad, good luck with the sale.  Do you have twofootitis or are you downsizing?

Ice Fishing / Re: Burbot- Marquette/Munising Area
« on: February 15, 2018, 07:01:35 PM »
FYI, I was told by a MDNR biologist that burbot are one of the worst fish to eat as far as contaminants go.  They are worse than a big 'ol greasy laker.  Just something to keep in mind when eating the
" poor mans lobster ".

Still fairly green around Houghton.

Inland Lake Fishing / Re: Portage Lake Question

The only spearing that is done in Portage is by the Indians, they massacre the walleyes in the spring during spawning.

Lake Superior / Re: Indian fishing regulations/agreements published?

All in all, there are no rules or limits.  Sure, there might be some that were written, but there is no enforcement or oversight.  So, they all just put out as much net as they want, in waters they shouldn't be in, and take as much as they want.  In my mind the only way to stop it or start enforcing it is for the federal gov't to cut the purse strings, and let all the free money dry up.  But we all know that is never going to happen.  Just because their great-great grandparents got the shaft, they think they are entitled to whatever the hell they want.

Lake Superior / Re: Really interesting Lake Trout sub species

Rick, I do believe that it is still at the hilltop.  Was never impressed with the mount job done to such an incredible fish.  Having fished the shoals a few times, it seemed to me that the small "stunted" fish, which by far outnumber the larger fish, tended to have the more pronounced pectoral fins.  I have seen pictures of a few fish in the high 30's to mid 40 lb range from the "shoals" that didn't seem to have abnormally large fins.  My theory is that most of the lakers out there are stunted, and a few of them are just a smidgen bigger and end up becoming cannibals.  That being the difference as to why a few of them get to be so darn big.  A buddy of mine has caught lakers out there with smaller lakers in their throats.

It appears that they were at Superior Shoals.  Definitely a different look to the fish.  The meat is also a little different color, like a pinkish white.  Not the white like a regular fat has.  But they do taste good.   

Boat and Tackle Setups / Re: Transom Height

It will not function properly.  The cavitation plate would be down too far under the boat.  If it is a kicker motor, then it won't be much of a problem, but if you are trying to get a boat on plane with it, there is going to be a lot of steering torque and extra drag.

And the typical response when a tribal boat or gov't boat sinks or leaks a load of oil in the water.  If that was a white man, they would have tens of thousands of dollars in fines and also the cost to recover the boat. Just another example of the tribe protecting "mother earth".

Price? Pics? Aluminum? Fiberglass? 

Boat and Tackle Setups / Re: braided compared to cable
« on: March 22, 2017, 10:46:05 PM »
I asked this same question a few years ago.  The response I got was to stick with cable.  The braid just isn't tough enough to handle the job unless you plan on stripping a few feet off the end and retying every trip.  If you get a few nicks in the braid line from bumping bottom or other lines, there is a good chance you will lose everything, cannon balls, releases, lures.  That gets expensive fast.

Lake Michigan / Re: Where did the fish Go?

Looks like you answered your own question at the end of your post.  I would say that tribal netting has played the biggest role in the decline.  Also, what is the status of the baitfish?  I too try to hold the DNR accountable when I can, but in this situation I don't think they are to blame.

Well said!

Check out fish307.com if you can't find anyone to swap with you.  They carry a load of parts for most riggers.

I would stick to OEM oils, they are specifically designed for your motor.  I would stay away from Quaker State or Pennzoil.  The only other oil than OEM i would use would probably be AMS oil.
