Looking for recommendations on a CPL class in the Marquette area.

Thanks,

 The subject you chose was coyotes. That is the subject I replied to. Of all the variables you mentioned. Coyotes are the one thing the DNR gives at least nine months for us to manage.
 Now I will be the first to tell you. Since I do not hunt. I lack the motivation and skills required to reduce the number of coyotes in the woods. But at the same time. I am not blaming the DNR for the numbers of coyotes in the woods.
 As for the other variables you mentioned. Clearly those all are separate subjects, each having differences in opinion.

 You can hunt yotes 9 months of the year. All year on private property if you feel they may cause an issue. No permission needed. Skilled and motivated hunters should be able to harvest a lot of yotes in nine months.
 I am not sure coyotes eating lots of deer has ever been any kind of secret. Long before wolves were ever talked about. I am not really seeing the DNR being the problem here.

Not worried about going faster than,  a Salmon can swim, obviously.  I have put lures in the water at these speeds, if you like spinning lures go right ahead. A mixed spread going 4, I got a hard time believing all those baits are running fine.
.       

   There is a slight chance that I mentioned how some baits are speed sensitive.

 You can not get any better advice than what John provided to you.

It all depends on the baits you are pulling. Some baits will not present themselves well at 4 MPH. But, you are not going to out run a salmon at 4 MPH. How fast can bait fish swim when being chased by a salmon?

 Common looking top cooler for the Tournament Trail this year. This one from sheboygan today.

 Great two days on the lake. Very nice job SSFA. Your hard work does not go unnoticed.
 31 boats for the women's/children's event, for the first year. Fantastic. Better than I hoped for.

72
The womens/children event is new this year. In order for this to happen, the folks at SSFA had to volunteer their time. Their time to set everything up. And of course their time on Friday to make it all happen. Like with everything else, they took it on with no hesitation. They are willing to do all the planning and work needed.
 Since it is the first time for SSFA, there may be a couple bumps in the road, and things learned. Which of course will be refined for next year.
 But this is not something new. The Tournament Trail offers it at many of their main events. I have participated twice in Sturgeon Bay. Same rules, same spirit and intent. The results both times were happy smiling kids. No problems.
 If it works everywhere else. I would expect it to work here.
 Captains need to realize the spirit and intent of this Friday. It is all about the kids and the women. The money is just a bonus. If you are not able to understand the part about it being all about the kids and women. This is not for you. Wait until Saturday. If you are about cheating inorder to gain some cash, wait until Sunday to fish. Don't be the guy that takes that smile off of Marshall's face when it comes to fishing.

73
 As Marshall would say, "Two more sleeps." Until he is fishing again.


74
 What I am about to express is opinion. I did not, do not make the rules.

This should not be this hard. It is suppose to be simple and fun for the kids. If the kid needs help, provide help as needed. Don't make it an experience the kid remembers as bad. Marshall can not hold the rod and reel in a fish. The rod will either have to go into a rod holder, or one of the women will have to hold the rod, while he turns the crank handle. Bigger kids should work with younger kids, women should help the youngsters. If you have neither, well, I guess you will have to be a little more hands on.
 Dan, if your 12 year old needs one of your hands to help hold the rod up, and in your boat, i would hope others understand that. Your 12 year old works with your 7 year old, if they need more help from dad, so be it. This is suppose to teach the kids about fishing, and sportsmanship. Help them love the sport. Now of course if you just pick up the rod and reel in the fish, and give the kids credit, you are not teaching the right lesson.
 Women I would expect can handle reeling in fish. May just need help reaching rods from up high, and diver rods. Pump rods for 7 year olds? I have no answer for that.

 Like I said, my opinion, not to be taken as the rules. If I have it wrong, the powers in charge need to clarify such.

75
Interesting. I do not know Esky. But it appears to be around 7 NM to the shoals, 20 NM to either Fairport or Whalesback. Seems weather could be important factor.
 Make it long enough to make the runs and have time to fish, don't limit to Mi waters, and it could be interesting.
