  1. The Pirate spoons are junk, they never catch fish..... send them to me and i will dispose of them for you....
  2. I would consider Scotty Downriggers. They use a gravity feed clutch to lower the weights, only use power when retrieving. I've had the short arm 1099's for a number of years and love them.
  3. I fished out of Braddocks for a few hours Monday morning. Worked the 70 - 160 range, 3 for 4, lost a nice one on the wire, 1 brown and 2 small kings off the riggers on spoons and Apex. There are fish and bait in the area, lots of hooks 70 -110 deep, 50 degrees at 80 down. Had a number of "streakers" around the spread but struggled to get them to go. No real pattern, Stinger NBK, watermelon Apex, white Pro Troll paddle & white/ silver fly. A number of boats in the area, and a bit deeper. Maybe the evening bite will be a bit better.
  4. I run Apex lures 4-5 ft. behind flashers every trip out. Very productive setup.
  5. The VK's are in the water every trip.... I usually will run an apex behind them They have a nice action..

  7. I don't even bother with the thread... coat the tape with clear nail polish.... never had one come apart.
  8. just use a heavy rubber band around the handle to hold the net..... easy peasy
  9. nice mounts but....... shouldn't the flag on the tip-up be up??
  10. Perhaps a cheap plastic cooler just big enough for the tank, bolted to the swim platform from the bottom with stove bolts and wing nuts, easily removable. cut a slot in the side of the cooler for the fuel hose, drill a few holes in the bottom to drain any rain or spray water.
  11. I sometimes use the top of my fish cooler as a fillet board. a few wet terrycloth hand towels from the dollar store keep the fish from sliding around, and keep slime and blood from running down the sides.
  12. Spawnee Bait Sac Tying Machine and materials Spawnee Bait Sac Tying Machine and 30 rolls of spawn sack material. Make me a fair offer, buyer pays shipping.
