 They did ID him. I bet he about pooped him self when he seen that picture.

 That is a fantastic idea. Same guys have been doing it. And have yet to experience the picnic part of it.

thanks for your concern, but hours on my mains is not one of mine.

 I do not see a reason to be concerned about trolling hours on the mains as well. Easy hours, and I may be known to blow the carbon out from time to time.

 I thought they should close that canal at Chicago as well. It was created to let the stench of Chicago flow away. But since water treatment has come around. In the mean time it is an opening for carp, and letting energy flow out. But Dire Wolf explained the error of my thinking. It seems it would also allow the water temps to rise. Which would be also be bad for salmon. But of course if the water temps exceeded 86 degrees, it would also be bad for the zebras,

 I check in time to time on Las Vegas water situation. It is like the salmon of Lake Michigan. Different groups with different ideas. Which time will tell who is right.

 In the mean time, they are building something like 40 new schools, adding on to something like 50 schools. To take in the added 1200 students they get per year. 1200 new students per year. At the same time, their water supply, Lake Mead is down something like 200 feet. 20 feet from where their water intake starts sucking air. And there is a large group, who claim everything is fine, keep building new houses and schools. Low flow water faucets and toilets will be the answer.

 That is just one area of a very large dry west. When people are dieing. All these water protection acts will become meaningless. I would hope they go with a nuclear powered desalinization. Get their water from the ocean. But it seems the addition of Zebras in 1980s and now asian carp cleaning the water is in their favor.

 May be tough to build a food source with all the energy trapped on the bottom of the lake. How you fix that, is beyond my imagination. My thought has always been, we should be putting more energy into the lakes. The outlet of the fish cleaning grinders should empty out into the lake.

 I am guessing Lake Huron went the same as Lake Michigan is going now. So many different groups, all with different ideas. One group saying the food is going away, another group saying all is fine, another hoping the salmon crash and lake trout does well. And my conspiracy theory group, who don't care about the fish. They want clean water to run through the pipes out west.

 It would seem to me, Lake Huron would make decision making for Lake Michigan easy. But it appears not.

When they stop stocking Chinooks altogether, then it will truly tell how many are natural reproduced. Salmon spawning last year on the Manistee was pitiful.  I have a friend who live on the river.  Pere Marquette is gotta be a big producer.

Lake Superior / Re: Trolling in cross-wind or cross-current?

  Your last sentence makes the most sense.

 I have never had to wait for my down rigger weight to come up. Fish hits, grab the rod, hit the button on the rigger. Weight is ready to go back down before you land the fish. Want to change lure, same thing release the line, hit the button, weight is up and ready to go back down long before you are.

 As for actual speeds? I do not know the answer to that. Put a 16 lb weight down 200 feet and see who gets to the top first. I think I would have to put my money on my Scotties.

 Electrics too slow? There may be lots of reasons to run manuals, but I am doubting speed is one of them.
