  1. Standard procedure for me is launch Mexico on westerly and Pine Grove on easterly. Hug the shore and then peek out. You know the drill. Fish where starting to head in Saturday evening.  If it don't feel right don't go. Just my 2 cents. 
    Keep it tight 
    Any word on Pine Grove launch... enough water for an 18' Lund to scoot out?

    Thanks guys.

  2. Hi Everyone. Planning to finally get back on the big lake tomorrow after a year long hiatus after selling my Lund Rebel. After a 9 month search I was finally able to replace it with another Lund, an Impact.


    We've got everything ready to go and are just looking for thoughts on where to launch and any thoughts on a starting point fow.


    Really appreciate the help.

  3. Pair of Big Jon Captain's Pak Downriggers. Pulled these off of a boat I just bought. Like new, see pictures. I also have full wiring set for them so you can just plug and go!
    From Big Jon...
    The Captain’s Pak comes complete with a ball cradle, 2 Multi-Set rod holders, a swivel base, a footage counter, 200 feet of stainless steel cable, a 4 in. x 4 in. mounting plate (with mounting bolts), and line release.

  4. Hey guys, I've seen so many videos lately of guys targeting browns and steel through the ice in a number of Lake Michigan harbors with good success.


    Are there any east end harbors that make good ice to give it a try? And obviously where it can be done legally? The tactics I've seen are guys setting up near shore, in and around docks, etc.


    A couple potential spots that come to mind as potential sites...Oswego Harbor, The SR Estuary via Pine Grove?


    Thanks for any help.

  5. I've always had good luck on eBay with my gear. Setup daily reminders for the specific model #s you're looking for and be patient. Usually with some time time you can get a new or open box unit for 20-35% off. Just bought a 7" helix gps g3n unit for $425 this week. Just be ready to pull the trigger quickly when you're item comes up!

  6. What requirement drove you specifically to a walk-around?  You definitely give up some overhead cuddy space and in general your cockpit will be narrower on a walk-around.
    Great question I was just trying to find a balance between overall functionality and having some decent space to hold gear and possibly spend an overnight or two on the boat. I am definitely open to other ideas in that range if you have any

  7. So I sold my 17' Lund Rebel about a month ago with the intent of sizing up to a 21-25' walkaround to handle a bit more weather on the big lake.  I've been looking around at a bunch of makes/models and honestly the list is a bit overwhelming.  I'm hoping to get everyone's thoughts on boats you'd recommend and maybe those to stay away from.  My priorities are probably the same as anyone in search of one of these boats; large rear deck for fishing, ample storage in the cuddy, reliability, stability in "weather", towable by a 1/2 ton, etc.  My budget isn't huge at $20-$30k.  A few features that I think would be nice...hardtop, outboard, wash down, lockable cuddy, autopilot.


    I put together a list of Makes/Models that I've seen either for sale or recently sold that meet these basic requirements, in no particular order.

  8. Great advice.  My slide divers are parked at home in my basement, ugh. I have fixed cheaters set and will give them a go this morning.


    Believe it or not had a decent bite yesterday on flasher + meat.  I shaved down some lake O herring strips to make them a bit more streamlined and that got them chasing into the riggers and a couple small Lakers on the deck.


  9. Hi Everyone,


    Our family is staying on 4th lake for the week through labor day. Always done pretty well on LT and LLS. Can't move a rod this year in 5 days. Confidence pretty low at this point.


    I've tried all the usual stuff... spoons, cowbells, plugs even some FF and meat. Have also tried vertical jigging with no results. Screen lit up with smelt just about everywhere in 40+ which could be part of the problem.


    Any help is super appreciated.


    Thank you.

    Purchased new in 2018.  I am the original owner with title.  Garage kept and serviced by Lund with receipts.  Non-ethanol fuel only.  Family boat so she has seen a mix of family cruises, tubing/skiing, and fishing in the Adirondacks, Finger Lakes and when the weather permits chasing salmon on Lake Ontario. Boat is in fantastic shape, and has been our “baby” for 4 years.  Selling hoping to get another Lund. 
    The beauty of the boat is that in less than an hour it can be completely rigged for fishing or completely clean for family boating.  Everything comes off including all rails and mounts, all without screwing anything into the boat.
