  1. I tried that and the filets had a very strange smell when I thawed them. Brian, I believe that smell is called Lake Trout
  2. Billy I am going through the same thing right now, after speaking to lots of fisherman, looking at reviews and talking to my meat cutter who is an avid outdoors man and a butcher of 30years by trade. I was told told: 1) go with a "food saver" 2) make sure it has two pumps 3) make sure it has a cutter on the unit to cut bags off the roll 4) and spend more if you can afford it (my meat cutter spent $400 has been using it for 4 years now with out a problem, and has done probably 200 deer with it) 5) and buy your bags in the bulk roll from Sams
  3. Daiwa Heartland 8'6" Kok rods? I used 6 of them this last year... they were great... and much fun. They took a 12lb eye, 13lb king and a 12lb steely this spring along with a gizillion browns.. the browns were great but i have to admit the steely and eye took some time to get in.. I dont think you could get a 15+lb king in with them without putting the boat in neutral... just the drag of the fish would be too much for them.. I ended up selling them at the end of brown season because they were just too soft for derbys... If you plan on having fun, dont mind losing a few fish... Then they are for you.. I paired them with 17lc accudepths and 8lb mason T-line.
  4. Hank does excellent work, Is reasonably priced, Hell.... I would trust him with a newborn baby.
  5. dick do you have some un rigged flys? They are super easy to tie.. I can show you in minutes next time we get out fishing....
  6. I have run flasher fly's with success.. Usually white and glow paddles and flies.. Glow j-plugs, glow spoons... I usually run my big boards when I troll at night.... But I also have run some pretty big spreader lights
  7. Aye, damnit Landshark we be Not goin' walleye fishin'.. If you want t' reel in a boot I will tie one t' your line while we be out runnin' J's for some salmon, gar!
  8. I ended up finding a way to rig my single that works for me. thanks though
  9. works great... another thing i am going to do for me and Landshark next season it tie them with 80lb ande... I cant stomach anymore 50lb floro at $22 for 25 meters..... The 80 should hold up fine is $12 for a 1/4lb spool. also the stiffness of the 80lb shouldnt be a problem (might have to add an inch or so for leads but will start at the standards for spin Dr.s and chips). Figure the savings on the leader, buying your flies in captains packs, and tying your own leaders and I should be able knock at least a couple bucks off my price per fly.
  10. Same here... Went to 4/0 Octopus hooks ( 2 - tied in tadem) and no more problems... not only is bent hooks not a problem but also you dont need to worry about brake offs from the treble (I dont have the time to put epoxy in all the bends). Also I believe the 4/0 octpus as a stinger gets a better hook up due to the fact the your force is centralized on one hook point instead of 2 or 3.
  11. gonna side with Tim on this one... I have have lost rigger balls before right at the crimp.. not only are you squishing the braid but your also creating a flat piece of metal that touches the line at 2 points (top and bottom of the crimp) for every crimp. Over hand loop it, pass the loop throught the eye of the snap, and drop it though the loop
  12. Thanks for the support Stan.. But now comes the real fun of raising brown trout and Atlantic Salmon in the classroom..
  13. there goes no shoes and my salmon club, hello sport coat and expo markers
  14. uh oh Mike, Ol Bass master Dick is trying to scoop that unit out from under you
  15. Ok so I have heard all the wierd substances that people put on their lures... Now once I was told that a certain brand of sun screen is used as an attractant... Now im not going to start putting sun screen on my lures any time soon.. But is some yahoo is goofy enough to put it on their tackle I will feel better about wearing it when I am fishing.. my current ritual involves me washing my hands with lava soap and using smelly jelly as hand cream after i apply my sun screen.. I would like to avoid this process if i can.
  16. I will also protest to the quality and great customer service of hummingbird and cannon.. This past season when i was installing my new sonar/gps I decided i didnt need directions and installed the thing.. all went well other than the piece that holds the cables in the unit was not installed (I gave it one of the, what the hell is this thing for? and threw it in the trash).. well I called HB and they had one to me in 2 days free of charge
  17. I had to read that one with a box of tissues
  18. i think it would be fine as long as both end of the wire in the twili tip could not touch the braid (you might have to some fine tuning with a pair of neddle nose pliers)
  19. All season sport (accross the street from Fat Nancys) is my prefered tackle shop in the pulaski area.. very helpful and cheaper than FN
  20. The moore comes with everything you need. including coated cable and stuff to make your break away.. if you are speaking of one of the RAM accesory mounts I am sure it would hold the unit fine.. its sort of bulky (size of a grape fruit) but very light.
  21. Braid: deffinetly pics up more fleas.. If you are going to use it I recomend 50lb power pro.. After you load it up the first time, Just like wire let it all out with a coupe ounces of weight on the end. Also braid does not go as deep as wire. With all that said If there are no fleas, and the fish are in the top 70 feet, braid is more forgiving and will allow you to run a more stealthy presentation.
