Lake Superior / Keweenaw Peninsula Indian Netting
« on: August 27, 2015, 08:55:40 PM »
  Looks like there not happy cleaning out the lake in Wisc., 6 or more Indian boats have been raping and pillaging north to south entry, carpet bombing as much water as they can. It was bad enough with the boats around here, but with the Red Cliff Band and Bad River Band the fishing has gone to shit, especially from Big Traverse to South Entry.  I haven't personally fished Baraga/L'anse, but have heard that it has been brutal there too.  So much for protecting Mother Earth! :mad:

  It has been a while since we have seen some of the new boats on here.  Looks like the pictures on the old thread got deleted.  Lets see some new ones, and maybe some old ones!

Lake Superior / Last time out for 2014
« on: November 02, 2014, 09:36:55 PM »
I got out today for the first time in over a month and a half.  We went out of Big Traverse, the dock had been pulled, but it wasn't too bad getting out on the water.  Fished 15-30 f.o.w searching for a few spawning lakers, hoping that we weren't too late.  Ended up going 6 for 8 on 2-3 lb lakers.  Not the size we were hoping for, but the meat on them was nice and orange.  Dipsey with a green spoon caught 4.  Water was 43 degrees.  5 out of 6 were males.  Overall it was an enjoyable evening, not as cold as I thought it was going to be.  Now it's time to winterize the old tub and stick it in the pole barn!

I have made a few trips out there this year.  Fishing was fair to good most of the time, really good one day.  Did mainly jigging in about 150 - 250 f.o.w, using 6 oz. jigs or a 4 oz. buzzbomb jigging spoon.  We did a little bit of trolling with decent success but nothing of any size, but they were better eating fish.  I took two of my boys along with there cousins on my boat and my brothers boat out a week ago and they had fun, the oldest boy caught a 13lb., and his younger brother caught a 14 and 20 lb. laker

Lake Superior / Finally
« on: June 21, 2014, 11:50:35 PM »
  I am glad to say that I finally got on the big water for the first time this year.  Headed out on Kew. Bay around 6 p.m. with my brother and three of our little boys.  It didn't take long to get the first laker in the boat, and then after that it was fairly steady for a couple hours.  Most fish were small, with the biggest around 4 lbs., had to throw one back and a couple were just barely legal, but the meat looked great when I cleaned them.  Went up and down from 120 to 170 fow, with two riggers right on bottom.  Ran a Silver Streak Screwball and a Mauler Blue Dolphin, both had the same amount of hits.  Tried shallower on the way back in for some silver fish, had one hit a 3 color on a board, but that was it.  Surface temp was 40 degrees about 3 miles out, 47 degrees by the launch.  The boys had fun reeling in fish, and helping each other hold the rod up while the other was reeling.  All in all it was a fun time for a shakedown.

Lake Superior / When Do We Get Some Open Water Fishing
« on: February 26, 2013, 04:32:40 PM »
  Looks like this year we are going to have to wait a few more weeks to get on the water compared to the last few years.  So that got me thinking, when was your earliest and latest date to get on the water after waiting for ice out?  My earliest was last year around the mid April, which doesn't really matter because ice was out long before that.  After looking at some family pictures, the spring of '96 I believe it was, there was still a lot of snow and ice around on May1.

I suspect there will be some major antics to come from this.

  Hope every one has a great season. :dance2:  I am certainly looking forward to it, not as much as I look forward to spring, but excited none the less.  Be safe and shoot straight.

  Is Buck done as the host, or is the new guy just filling in until he recovers from back surgery?

Boat and Tackle Setups / Spring Cleaning-Maintenance
« on: April 27, 2012, 11:46:58 PM »
  It is time to do some spring cleaning on your boats boys.  Not just actual cleaning of the inside or outside of the boat, but to make sure that everything is hunky-dory with your motor(s).  Although a lot of people have already splashed there boats, for the rest that haven't, give everything a good look over before you bring it to the launch for the first time.  To many times some people throw a battery in their boats and back it into the water for the first time, only to find out that it won't start or it is overheating.  Check your engine oil, gear lube, battery condition, all of your electrical items, i.e., bilge pumps, blowers, horn etc., And fire it up on the hose if possible.  Make sure it is pumping ample water so overheating is not a problem.  On inboard/sterndrives also make sure they are running up to temperature, if any sand or sediment gets stuck in your thermostat it will be stuck open and your motor will not warm up enough.  This causes other problems also, the engine will run a lot richer when it is cold or not warm enough. Also, put some time on the motor before thinking about going on a substantial trip.  I cringe when I hear about people taking there boats out of storage and head out to places like Stannard Rock or Isle Royale, without ever doing a shakedown cruise.  That method usually bites them in the ass.  So do a little prep and maintenance and don't be the guy sitting at the boat launch wondering why your boat won't run right or at all.  And get out there catch some big-un's.

Lets hear a few of your favorites. 

I had seen an older wood cruiser with "Morning Wood" on it.

Also heard on the radio once "Fog Ducker", as someone pointed out, that could be easily switched around to Dog @#cker.  So that is what he was called on our boat all weekend, every time he called over the vhf, we would get a good laugh.

There is a boat that runs in the Portage Canal, It is named "Canal Girl", until someone scratched off the "C",  I laugh every time I see that.

I haven't been on here much lately, so I was surprised when I saw Rick was gone. Anyone have any idea what is going on?
