    Do this or you may be SORRY!

    gary; There was a day that I would have just cut the strap , & gotten on with it, tying the hook on will get the boat back on the trailer.
  3. The observer thing is a no go for me, I can't pay someone to watch me fish. If an observer is needed there must be too much rule violation.
  4. king; Very nice steelhead! John
  5. Sk8; Did you ask him why they don't troll for the tuna, Shure would get rid of the anchor line problems & cover much more ground? John

    Traxstech/Berts Net holders

    tl; I have been running two Traxtech net holders mounted as you are thinking of doing for the last 5 yrs. They have been very effective, & work great. I take the nets down when under way. good luck; John

    Best trolling reels???

    sf1; Glad to hear that your Tekotas are working for you, although you found the 800 did need new drag washers. Well that was my experience with the bakers dozen of Tekota 5, & 600's.I have. I never said that they weren't quality reels, only the drags aren't the best, good luck John

    Best trolling reels???

    I run both reels, but have had to upgrade all of the Tekota drags, as the stock ones IMHO are sticky, & don't hold up. Sealines come with good drags. John

    Since the Oswego Lighhouse Cam is down, is there anywhere else to see today's monster waves? Thanks; John

    losing lake trout

    Loosing a laker at any time is a blessing, don't have to handle their slimy crap spraying stinky AZZ, & don't have to clean off the boat!

    Rod tree suggestions

    Frog; I have been using Traxtech triple trees for the last four years, & IMHO you won' find any better. They tip down so you could put a rod tip in the water if you want to. good luck John
  14. YT; Thanks for sharing these great fish, waiting for your first King photo! Good Luck John

    Wire rods

    SF; After 1 or 2 yrs, I typically respool my wire diver reels contents onto a like spare empty reel, using the opposite end of the spool, this also allows you the ability to inspect the wire throughout its length. Good Luck John
