    tj; Scotty makes them. good luck john
  2. 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
  3. for sale : usa Lowrance hds. 5

    un169; So, a mounting bracket will be needed? thanks john
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Lake web Cams

    Since the Oswego Lighhouse Cam is down, is there anywhere else to see today's monster waves? Thanks; John
  7. 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!
  8. 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
  9. YT; Thanks for sharing these great fish, waiting for your first King photo! Good Luck John
  10. 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
  11. Preserving Baits

    Sarge; Question is do the Kings still like them? John
  12. Big Jon Brute rigger worth the $$

    Chowder; Don't overlook the Traxtech riggers as they with out a doubt the best riggers I have ever used. Sold four Brutes & switched over to Traxtech four years ago, Traxtech has a soft start & stop built in, they run slow at the start (5') then full speed, then slow for the last 5'. The cost a couple hundred more, but IMHO are very worth it. Lifetime warranty too. Good Luck with your purchase. John
  13. How loud are those custom pipes?
  14. Lake Michigan Lake Trout reduction

    Char: Lakers live a lot longer than Kings, so they remain in the ecosystem as adults much longer, so less Lakers, & manage the stocked Kings based on the condition of the forage base. Lakers also have a relatively low performance digestive system causing them to eat more bait fish to get their required amount of protein compared to other species. John
  15. Big Browns Spring trolling

    What, they had another 10 million gallon sewage release???
