Great video, Keith!  That boy of yours is one hell of a fisherman!  Cool to see the little man hooked up with a fish as big as he is!!

Let's give credit where credit is due...  This is a City of Marquette employee, with 2 scrub brushes and a bottle of bleach cleaner scrubbing the cleaning station.  He's been at it for almost 30 minutes already.  Thank you! :thmb:

until then, encourage him to care for it since it is a privilege provided by the association and maintained by the city.

No can do, ghostrider.    I will continue to tell him what a dirty piece of shit he is, and what I think of him raping and polluting the lake and trashing everything he touches.  I'll remind him I helped pay for the station he's using, as well as help maintain it out of my own pocket for the last several years.    -Someone else can do the "encourage him" thing.

 It is open to the public. Can't stop him due to being non white, or a commercial fisherman.

He's NOT a member of the public.  He's a member of a "sovern nation", and it ain't our nation.  He probably cleans more fish there this week than most guys will clean in 5 years.  That's a little different...

There is another problem developing down there though.  Somebody is clogging up the drain under the station with scales, and the grass around the station is also covered in scales.  It is the city's responsibility to maintain this facility but it is our job (i.e. the fisherman who use it) to keep it clean.  I know that the new hose will help and I know that the vast majority of us do a good job keeping it clean.  Unfortunately one bad apple can screw it up for the rest of us.  If you see someone leaving a mess, get on them!

I've seen the "bad apple" down there many times this week.  Just our local friendly toothless poacher...I mean Indian "fisherman" cleaning HUNDREDS of Whitefish and plenty of nice Cohos as well.   THATS why the drain is clogged, and thats why the grass is covered with scales.   Feel free to stop down and let him know that he's a dirty piece of shit-asshole-poacher-prick and he can go clean his fish elsewhere.  I did, though I'm not sure it'll help...

Lake Superior / Re: Trolling bags vs trolling plate

Trolling Bag for sure! :thmb:  Amish Outfitters Beefy Bag.  The 28" one would be perfect for ya.  Slows you down AND adds stability.  With a single screw, maybe even go down a size and run one off each side.  You will love them, especially in rough water.

Do you think that two 18" bags would do the trick? Again I don't have a large boat. When I kick the boat in gear without the plate down it trolls around 4.5mph. Looking to get to laker and salmon trolling speeds. Or would two 22's" be better? Thanks for the info.
With your setup, I'd think 2 of the 18's would do the trick, but I have no experience with the smaller bags.  They have a chart on their website that shows bag size vs. boat size/speed desired.  Check that out for more info.   1 of the 28" bags slows my 27' boat from 3.5 down to under 2.

200000 to Marquette wow good for you. Hope that they come back in 3 or 4 years

The DNR has been doing this every year for over 10 years, but never seem to get thanked for it...because they supposedly don't care about the fishery near Marquette...

The return is little to none around Marquette, but surrounding areas sure do benefit greatly from it!

Off Topic / Re: Boat Name Changes.....how to avoid bad luck?
« on: April 09, 2015, 05:34:30 PM »
You can't "transfer" a name from one boat to another...that's bad luck.  New boat, new name.  It's the boats name, not yours.  Keep the same handle one the vhf?  Ok.  But not the same name on 2 boats!  Bad luck!

Name it BEFORE it hits the water.  A boat with no name is bad luck.

You don't want to  have a "Black cloud" following you around  :thmb:

Off Topic / Re: Time for new licenses
« on: April 02, 2015, 11:13:23 AM »
Last year was the first license increase since 1996. How many things do you know of that DON"T cost more now than they did in 1996?

In 1996, we charged $1 for a dozen perch minnows, now $2.25. Same with wigglers. 2 inch minnows were $1.50, now $3.25. Crawlers were $1.50 a dozen, now they're $2.75. Candy bars were .50, now $1.

How much do you spend to fill your truck with gas to go fishing or hunting? How much to fill the boat? How much for just four or five of the hot new Moonshine spoons for Fairport?

Complain about license prices if you want, but really, if you divide the price of your licenses by the number of days you spend on the water or in the woods doing the things we love, it's still a pretty damn good value.

ABSOLUTLY AWESOME!  Right on the money.  I'm so tired of hearing guys bitch about license cost.  Shut up and pay it, or go somewhere else and hunt and fish...where it's even more expensive.

  There would be some proof if anyone has ever been there on the ice.  I'll call b.s. on that one.  Taking a pic from 15 miles away doesn't quite count either.

Exactly!  Lots of "stories" over the years, yet I've NEVER seen proof.  Ever.  Pretty sure first thing I'd do out there is take a picture.   13 ice shantys?  Yeah, ummmm, NO.

Here is a sweet video taken this year in February at the Lighthouse.

Thanks Ryan, and thank you to everyone else who came yesterday.  Everything went very smooth and I think lots of people walked out with some new things to try in the water this summer.


And a HUGE thanks to the guys at Slide Diver who helped us get enough so everyone attending the seminar will leave with a new Slide Diver!  :dance: :drunk:

If you already use them, you surely need another.  If you've never used them, you're missing out!!  Its my favorite delivery devise hands down, is super versatile, and produces fish all year long.  The biggest Salmon ever caught on my boat was caught behind a Slide Diver.  The Biggest Lake Trout ever caught on my boat while trolling came behind a Slide Diver.   :thmb:
