    A lot of these guys will grab pics off the internet and ask for payment even thought they don't have the item in their possession.  What I typically do is ask them for a second photo of the item and ask them to hold a specific item in the field of view - like a can of soda or a dollar bill or some common object.  When doing that I've never been scammed - most times on social media or here if I have requested I'm either blocked or the person goes away.....food for thought.

    Still have to aware of Photo Shop'd pictures!  Those types are tricky.

  2. Agree on the economies of reloading except you can't find PRIMERs and powder is hit and miss.  So if you have everything available I support going for it!  IF you know who has a good supply of primers, please do tell!




  3. As mentioned....make sure your batteries are good.  With the unit powered on and not running, take a voltage measurement across the collective battery set.  Should be close to 37.5V fully charged (12.6v/battery).  If it reads below 36V (or less) time for a new set of batteries!   You can also take them to the auto parts store and have them load tested.

    Why not? The amount of boats is shutting the schools down. Long coppers produce shy fish. People need to give others a little space. It’s a big lake. 

    As a fist timer my observation was: 1) you have east/west stright line trollers, 2) south west / north east trollers and the 3) "S" trollers who were all targetiong the same 90-180' depth range (from the red bouy east).   You would think there is enough room for everyone but everyone wanted the same coridor!  We did not run long lines for that reason.  One vessel that cut in front us (coming from our port side! no less)  lost his long line rig in my downrigger cable.  From what I saw it is pure chaos although navagable.

  5. We left the Fort  N Launch about 6:30 and headed to the 100' just beyond the red bouy.  Set up 4 dipsy divers down 40, 50 60 & 70'.  Riggers down 60 and 80 with sliders.  The morning e-w troll produced 4 nice kings, one laker (released) and two more releases that we lost our set ups on (one operator equipment error and one dipsy actually broke!).  After a short nap and lunch, headed back out about 5 pm.  We picked up 3 more kings (one 19#er our biggest) and one real short 14" that we must have dragged for a while - he/she went back.   Only caught one of the bunch on a rigger.    Blue'ish spoons were the ticket for us.  No other color seemed to produce.


    Hit em good everyone!

    Thx guys that’s probably what I’ll do . I’m thinking a smaller 2 stroke with a steering hook up like mikes . Thx

    The newer 4-strokes compare favorably to 2-strokes for weight.  The 9.9 Merc Pro Kicker  (or Nissan or Yammy or Suzuki or ...) connected via a bar link coupled with an ITroll for precision speed control is awesome combination.
