Not yet, need to order the cable when I get back home this week. Stinks, haven't been on the water all year except for the one hour in Detour on 4-6' waves. Fish count 1 laker! Only 108 fish behind last year.

Passing through Detour (at harbor overnight) today on the way back from the North Channel.  Geez, there are a ton of nets around here.  The whole north Shore of Drummond and when we traveled north a couple weeks ago, all over the channel entrance.  That has to make it a bit of a challenge for you guys.

Yeah...we ran a bit nearer the shore on our way to Mackinaw City this morning to gain shelter from the NW wind.  We dodged net buoys here and there for 20 miles.
