  1. Well that’s not good. Core-lokt ammo I would guess?
  2. How old was the Remington ammo ? I had it happen once years ago but the ammo was at least 10 years old. That primer looks like it has a good hit from the firing pin.
  3. We hunt plenty of sea ducks here in Maine, a lot of Old Squaw and Eiders. The popular way to cook them is to bake them with a brick inside the bird and when it’s done you toss the bird and eat the brick ! Our sea ducks taste just like low tide. Fortunately we know an old fella that has a big smoke house and he takes them and brines em up. Still fishy tasting to me though even after smoking. Wish they were better cause they are fun and easy to hunt on the coast.
  4. I love my 300’ coppers, you certainly feel the fish. Toughest thing about copper is learning how to let your line out without backlash !! Took me a couple years to get real comfortable with it. I only run 300’ coppers on line counters so I can run ‘‘em short if I want We catch a bunch of fish on them but the one thing I will say is that it’s hard to catch and release some fish epically steelhead cause the heavy line takes its toll on the fish when bringing them in.
  5. We stay at Long Lake Camps in Sinclair We fish first week of June and now last week of September. Great place in the middle of no where Some of the biggest Landlocks come out of that lake, 10+ lbers ! Big brookies also. Gonna go there in January for the first time ever to fish for smelts and maybe a salmon or two but it can be brutally cold with temps 20-30 below in the mornings, nice and warm in the smelt camps though .. Good luck with your boat project my friend
  6. Right on Pete, The offer stands if needed I got friends in Fort Kent and Madawaska and love fishing Long lake. Nothing like chasing Landlocks and moose up in "The County"
  7. Hey Pete, Seems like you got your boat figured out and your plate is a part of it. I have a lightly used Happy Troller that I would be happy to send you if you like. Not sure what shipping would cost from Maine but it's yours if you want it. Send me a PM if you like......Dan
  8. Yes, sliders are a "free" lure, it doesn't count as another rod. You can fish them on all 3 rods if you choose
  9. I fished divers with a few different rods and twilli tips (springs) for over 25 years with no real issues and then i bought a pair of high-end Daiwa rods with roller eyes and roller tips for 500$... I couldnt stand the roller tip, it rotates about 180 degrees but the wire kept 'pigtailing' so much I ended up cutting the tip off and put twilli tips back on . I love the action of the rod and the roller eyes are fine but the roller tip sucked in my opinion . With the roller tip its hard to keep any tension on the wire when your done fishing unlike a twilli spring tip . Im sure some guys love the roller tips but my experience was a bad one.
