  1. Looking forward to some good ice this year.
  2. Couldn't agree more. I was looking forward to this weekend but my 18 foot boat will stay on the lift until this blows over. Other than the late start this year the fishing has been good.
  3. Finally got out on the 4th. Just 2 Browns one on an NBK spoon at 95 over 120 that surprised me and the other on a watermelon pattern spoon at 75. Dragged a 450 copper meat rig with one hit and miss. We marked lots of bait and fish but never figured the right combination. Not many boats out deep for a holiday weekend.
  4. The weekend may not be lost.
  5. Got out once for browns before the flood. Looks like I won't again until it's over. Going to be a short season.
  6. State Park launch yesterday. The beach is gone.
  7. The launch is fine but the docks are only about 4 inches above water. We just trolled West Friday and Saturday. Picked up 4 nice Browns just around the last bluff before Port Bay. All on Bay Rats. We were in close but the power cord on my graph shorted and had to troll blind. New cord came today. Hope to be back out Sunday.
  8. Went 4-5 Friday and Saturday trolling for Browns West to Port Bay from Fair Haven.
  9. Atlantic Salmon

    Just one out of Fair Haven last summer
  10. Looking forward to getting out on the ice. New tip-ups and replacing the throttle on my power auger.
  11. 4 stroke vs 2 stroke power

    I have a 90hp 4stroke Merc and I replaced a regulator rectifier last year and could have bought the part from Yamaha. They made the power head. The rest was made by Mercury. Mine is a 2000 model year maybe they don't anymore. Other than that one part it has been a great motor.
  12. 4 stroke vs 2 stroke power

    The Mercury 4 stroke power heads are made by Yamaha.
  13. 4 stroke vs 2 stroke power

    I have a 2000 90hp Mercury 4 stroke on an old 18 Starcraft Holiday. It will troll down to 1.5 mph and uses far less than my old 15hp Johnson kicker. I have a 12 gallon fuel tank but only use a 6 gallon tank that came with it. In the years I have had it I have never came close to running out in a day.
  14. I was also out there and brought a second boat. One release between the both of us. Marked a lot of fish but they didn't cooperate.
  15. Went out late this morning and didn't mark any Kings or bait. Did get a 30 inch Laker on F/F.
