If there is particular lures, spin doctors, dipseys, flies, reel/pole models, lines, clasps, flashers, hooks, graphs, radar, dowriggers, trolling motors or anything else that you would like to see stocked please let me know.

Ordered a dozen clears earlier today.  Great idea about the otters and planers.

The new Church planer boards came in today.  I haven't used them but they look pretty serious.  They say they pull dipseys and good sized weights.  Anyone used them yet?

I occasionally run 10 colors with a Daiwa 57, but with the long runs by the scrappers at Fairport last weekend it didn't seem like I had enough backer.  What reels do you recommend for 10 color?

I am using 20lb flourocarbon backer and should be using the power pro to get more yardage.  So do you start with mono/flourocarbon for the reel, go to powerpro, then lead core, back to mono/flourocarbon?

I did vote towards moonshine, but i do have to say ive caught more fish on Finn spoons in Lake Superior then moonshines.  Lake Michigan hands down vote goes to moonshines.

UV Bloody Butter caught some nice fish for me last year at Fairport.  I have not run them enough on Superior.  I ran the Finn Devil and straight copper, but keep switching back to fly, peanuts and cutbait for more numbers.

Stuff I can't live without:

Ande line, 1 lb spools of 20 and 17 lb test clear mono.
30 pound test lead core line
Sampo swivels--the beefy salmon variety
Spro or good quality ball bearing swivels, 15 lb test version for light gear work
Spro jigs, 2-4 ounce, white glow.
Power Pro line-30 lb test
the original "hootchie mama" rotating flashers (Beechold & Sons, out of California, I believe)
Seaguar fluorocarbon line (15, 20, 50 lb test)
Seven strand (or the torpedo brand 19 strand) wire line, 1000 foot spools
Clear slide divers
Glow white, green, and silver dipsy divers
Rubber Snubbers
Offshore Brand medium tension releases
Diawa SG47LC level wind reels (NOT "Accudepth")
7'6" to 9' Roller Rods for wire dipsies
Luhr Jensen flash flies
Rubber Squid/fly bodies in bulk so I can tie/rig my own
Mustad Triple grip treble hooks (for replacing the junk that comes on Moonshine spoons)
Cut bait (herring strips and the like)

I like Garmin electronics.
