Boat and Tackle Setups / Re: Battery Chargers
« on: May 09, 2014, 11:54:16 AM »
If the only thing your starting battery does is start the engine, I wouldn't worry about an on board charger for it.  Your main engine should have no trouble keeping that battery topped between starts.  Your deep cycle batteries are the ones that should be charged long and slow with and onboard charger.

Lake Superior / Re: Stannard rock closest boat launch
« on: May 01, 2014, 10:18:24 PM »
Presque Isle-Upper Harbor
46° 34' 20" N
87° 22' 25" W

Cinder Pond-Lower Harbor
46° 31' 56" N
87° 22' 26" W

A 27' at either launch is no problem.  I belive it's $5 to launch.

41 from the Upper Harbor in Marquette, 45 from the Lower Harbor. 35 from Big Bay.  All track lengths I have run, straight off my GPS.

lac la belle would be closest or not?

Negative.  Big Bay is the closest launch.

Copper Harbor is the same distance as Marquette  :thmb:

And going from Big Bay is only 7 miles shorter than from Marquette.

Very nice!  :thmb: 

You definitely get what you pay for.  I'm bummed to hear that Randy is hanging it up.  His work is unmatched around here.  Time to start looking at other options for my customers I suppose.

Take a trip to Gander Mountain and speak with Dan Webb.  And ONLY Dan Webb!  He'll point you in the right direction.  He is usually there in the afternoons.

I'd say Daybreak Charters as well  :thmb:

But I am already getting full for this summer.  I have only 2 weekend days left open the entire season, and the weekdays are filling up fast.  Better call soon if you're interested.

Captain Mitch runs a good charter as well. 

South Shore Fishing Association / Re: Veterans Fishing Day
« on: March 27, 2014, 12:27:05 PM »
We had our first meeting last night to start discussion on the plans for the Veterans Fishing Day this year on Lake Superior.  It was really a brainstorming of ideas to see what direction we want to go, when we want to have it, and how much help we'll need to pull it off.  The most important thing being that last one... Its going to take a LOT of work to organize this event, starting now and going right through the day it happens.  We need people to join the "board" or committee for the event, that can donate a good chunk of time to help plan and organize everything.  Most likely having meetings every couple weeks through out the summer.  We'll need help contacting and working with Veterans groups in the area, lining up willing fisherman who'll donate a day on the water aboard their boat, dealing with the logistics on the day of the event, and so on...  Whether you want to be involved as much as possible, or just want to help the day of the event, we'll need your help to put together a great day for these hero's.

We are having another meeting in 2 weeks, Wednesday April 9th at the Elks Club in Marquette.  We would love to have a number of people volunteer to be part of the committee for this event.  We'll need about 12 people for this committee to work, that way if everyone cant make every meeting, its no big deal.  I promise you, the feeling you'll get in your chest after helping put a smile on the faces of these guys will be well worth the time and effort.

We made NO decisions or definite plans yesterday, but here are some of the ideas that were discussed;

--Time wise, were thinking end of Summer, early Fall.  Likely around Labor Day weekend or maybe the week after.  We are talking about this being an all day event, with maybe 4-6 hours of fishing in the morning, and then a fish fry/fish boil/pig roast/bar-b-q afterwards.  We'll want warmer weather for that, so a spring time event wouldn't work as well.  (plus we may not have a spring...)  Also, that time of year will have good near shore fishing, so people wont have to run very far.

--As far as a "weather day" or back-up day, we talked about possibly bumping it from a Saturday to Sunday if we had to.  But we also agreed that having a bunch of back up dates isn't going to work for most peoples schedule.  More than likely, if we had a super bad day and cant get on the water at all, we'll end up bagging the fishing part but still have the onshore party/picnic and just make the best of it we can.  The fishing over at Thills is excellent if we get in a bind...

--We don't want this to be Tournament or a Derby.  This is a day to thank these people all we can, and show them a good time.  Its about them, not about competition.  It would be nice to have all the boats working together to ensure good fishing for everybody involved.

--There was an idea of asking the Isle Royal Queen owners to be involved as well.  We could use the big tour boat to get the families of the Vets on the water for a while that day, as well as any that have disabilities that wont let them board a smaller fishing boat.

--We are really going to need to find out ASAP the number of boats/captains that are going to be willing to participate in the event.  Before we can start talking to Veterans groups or other things, we need to have a somewhat solid number of COMMITTED boats/captains so we know how many people we are going to be able to accommodate.

Again, we're gonna need all the help we can get to make this a kick ass day, and that's what we want.  If your interested in helping in any way, please step up and do so!  The more help we have, the better this day will turn out.  Nothing is planned yet and we are still looking for more ideas. You can contact myself or Mylan Koski via UPAngler, email, or phone if you are interested.  Or better yet, just show up to the next meeting!  We'll try to keep an updated post of meeting dates going on here so people will know when they are.  If you're interested in being a Captain that day, please let us know ASAP so we can start to get numbers together.  We need as many boats as we can, as there is no shortage of Veterans who want to go fishing!  We'll nail down an exact date at the next meeting, but it looks to be in that Labor Day or week after time frame.

Thanks to the guys who showed up last night to get this all started, and we look forward to seeing many more of you guys in the future!   :usa:

Lake Superior / Re: Ice "free" predictions?
« on: March 22, 2014, 08:28:15 AM »

They cant predict weather from one hour to the next let alone months in advance.

Here's to hoping you're right, and they're wrong!  :beer: 

Lake Superior / HOG from Stannard Rock
« on: March 21, 2014, 11:27:33 AM »
Been watching some of my old videos to try and pass this winter by, and making a few new cuts for the Boat Show in Marquette this weekend.  A few people have asked to see this video again, so here it is. One of the best Stannard Rock trips of my life!  Not because of numbers or size of fish, but because of the people onboard and the memories we made.  Lotsa "hootin and hollerin" that day!  :beer:

So here is Josh (249er) doing what he does best...Catching huge fish at The Rock!  After over 40 minutes of trying to release it unsuccessfully, he went on Josh's wall. He weighed just under 36lbs at the Taxidermist.

Gun Talk / Re: Concealed Carry Revolvers
« on: March 11, 2014, 08:01:52 PM »
If you are set on a revolver, be sure to look at the S&W Governer.  It's a bit heavier than a 38 or 357, but not much.  After the holsters on my belt, it takes me two minutes to forget it's there.  I have the option of loading with .45 Colts, .45 ACP, or .410 Gauge shells.  It's gonna be slightly harder to conceal, but worth it in my opinion, especially in the woods.

I used to carry a 38+p Smith in the woods. But I also had Bears all over the place, and wanted something with a bit more sting.  Worth a look anyways!  :thmb:
