  1. Ice was 4". It was the best I've ever done at braddocks. Switched jigs and spoons in every color tipped with waxies or perch eyes. Only 5 on the jig rod. All the other perch and all the jumbos came on tipdowns with fatheads. Tipdowns are deadly on the ponds and I'll out fish almost anyone who don't run them. Mine are homemade.
  2. I fished braddocks. That might have been me you seen. 15 perch 9+.... 30+ dinks.....1 pike 22" or so. Could barely walk on cranbo in a few spots so not sure if the perch are in there. It's not the water level that screwed up the ponds. When the lake levels were high the other year they used machines to block off the channel to keep the water from flooding into the ponds. That's been removed and I'd bet there are perch making there way in there but I don't know for sure.
  3. I could find more if needed. What you using them for? Decoy weights or drop weights on the junk lines? The lake Michigan guys really like them on there junk lines. Do you want wire eyes or swivels? I got a guy that will make custom cnc molds but it might take some time to get him to do it.
  4. Try these.... https://www.ebay.com/itm/125079053845?hash=item1d1f4ae615%3Ag%3A1LUAAOSweHteCSa-&LH_BIN=1 Or https://www.ebay.com/itm/140477592571?_trkparms=ispr%3D1&hash=item20b51df3fb%3Ag%3ABr4AAOxyZw5RZHfY&amdata=enc%3AAQAGAAACkPYe5NmHp%2B2JMhMi7yxGiTJkPrKr5t53CooMSQt2orsS9d9gBrkNbRQtRn8MVXnYktGVBdErdfN%2BaKk9ddU91JANGfh9McNJkGfCy4qjlfnvu%2FVzIspBw%2BCREwhC7RhV34B3IP1Cmkv6IyK3QxADFJHVLfoZBMBvdxdaMGD9MkIbaxgnGztDG23mtBBhU3L8piAghQEb8T%2BAHgbRux4h0TLR9qzenGaQ6Xpo4hxBHYyebQFHTNYgESdPfeYdmM%2FsFp2A3H4pg5rqhRhuaxW%2FhgD9D5odjdxfUvzUAfBdJHEkJWJ0hhKDJBsoQWGMx6ritRK9xY0Wib395WMoXpsRgrYHPyPSx%2BzJjqbBO6jtAJdOVg7EaFVuvyAQYO1jFyRwS5T8nB5Xm5EdY6Fh4fFveaAiKVsFme6y8FIuiYYvXfoUnTp605nrJhkhrsV2JFwQHHpHoCTKWZSf3Dea4xUczMdBOmKm6L6g3%2BtPlXuI8UnJdgZkkLcpRYVC8MqFG%2FKe0xpLCOUlBvlbfco%2FS406lklFWObh%2F7vVfyCLd9ebN5XbBr3TkEvzv1P7eKW1Ah1Y96%2B4akjwYeqEhgNP2WZS%2FMPJxV1JsAhsODSjkgw1oKZmzJIKnrV3ZeLkQPu2ruRv1xUyLXYRIljMxudKzQXhJXkA609aXlAXkeiFLPjPgUeWmhda7Giwyu6H%2FnImxWN%2B7cEecQeUNRkkyRNqTr2%2BObTUdJ6tg7TUttrY5QrWAqhvpHSeqdkanowzSxLKhrlSHAQYZLaaazxkKfeyt%2BbcAlu2wgSp489m1kMXLL5RvRFtuH%2BOEYHGJEYIi6i4KL%2F89ooUPr5n6MqEKIcuPqtymDU2aP%2Bgn%2BSkt8d00NV8K5eR|clp%3A2334524|tkp%3ABFBMprj05clf&LH_BIN=1
  5. If you'll ship it I'll take it if Brandon don't take it
  6. It's mostly a south wind that blows the warmer water off shore and the colder water from bottom gets pushed in shallow.....but the big girl does what she wants and is unpredictable.
  7. Welcome to the site. Nice looking stuff. Only question I really got is how do you get your teenage kids to do anything productive? I like the hammered spoons. I'll be ordering a few things. I'd really like a bunch of them hooks you got on your quick strike rigs. I can't find them anywhere and my supply is dwindling.
  8. I had a problem like that on my starcraft. Changed the motor and relays. Switch worked but replaced it and checked the wire 1000 times. Once in a while it worked when jumped. Motor always powered and seemed like everything was ok. One of the cylinders was bad and would fight the other cylinder so it wouldn't go up or down. This was a completely different system than yours tho. Friend changed out the cylinders and worked perfectly. I did not believe it was the cylinders at all and he replaced them when I was gone so I came back to a working boat. First time out after that I blew a hydropic line so if they look old just replace them too. I would try un bolting the rams from the outdrive and see if they move. If not crack the line and see if there is pressure. Like I said my boat was a 68 and the first outdrive ever made so quite different. Somewhere there is a check valve to prevent fluid from returning when the drive is put into reverse so the drive stays locked. If that valve is closed then no fluid is going to circulate thru those lines. Some have that valve in the lift motor and some have it on the shift linkage. That's what I thought was wrong with mine. That valve was locked and preventing the fluid from moving the rams. The rams were my problem but there very different systems. But hopefully you can get this figured out. If the pump runs then it's not a power issue. Check the reverse lockout and the rams.
  9. Interested in the pair of cannon planer masts. Where you located?
  10. My package came yesterday. Talk about awesome packaging. As soon as I looked at my 5 packs of 13 and realized I should have ordered more. These are gonna be some derby winning fillets.
  11. I need these. Sending money now. Thanks again!
  12. Olcott looked a couple feet low last weekend. Lowest I ever remember seeing it. Take the low water and all the mud braddock's has and you might only be able to get thru during high tide. Put a mud motor on the Jon boat and you might be alright.
  13. I'll take the wire rods, the glt with the 47 reel and the maxi mate and spoons.
  14. I wasn't sure if it could hold a flasher or not. Some people say yes, some say no. Wanted to try it but I've been using regular dipsy's my whole life so tripping is not as important to me as not having false trips. I would use braid on this setup but my normal wire dipsy's are on 10' rods with twilly tips so was just gonna cut off a few feet of the messed up wire that I screwed up with poor storage and make those my high divers. Then get some 8'6" rods for the low divers. Then I'll be able to break down the long rods and just store them regularly and keep my low divers in 1 piece. The 10' just are too long to store in 1 piece on my boat and I normally only have 1 other guy with me so in my 6 rod spread I'd only have 1 diver per side unless we are chasing browns or walleye. Still need to run the rigger with the probe and paddle and I'd probably run another wire before a diver but when I can't buy a bite I buy more equipment to wash my ever growing collection of baits. Never know I might end up using these as my main divers and just storing the regular dipsy's.
  15. So adding a few things this year and one is going to be a slide diver setup. I want to know if anybody who uses 19 strand wire really likes it. I want to try that anyway so might try it out but I already got 2000' 7 strand ready to spool up 2 rods so unless someone talks me out of it I'm going to run that. I've also never ran a slide diver before but ran every other diver so most of it should be about the same. My plan was to get 2 ultimate clear divers and run them with 25' mono then 8-12' floro leaders. I'd like to know if the lite bite version is ok for big flashers and meat rigs and mature salmon. I'd use it for walleye too and like for it to trip with a perch. If a lite bite will trip a perch and still hold a flasher I'd get it. If not I'll just get the regular slide diver. Should have already got this done. Putting away the ice fishing gear and got to get the boat ready.....the browns are waiting!
  16. I run my 25lb big game salmon rods and my 17lb walleye rods. I just use lighter leaders for the browns buy don't spool any just for browns.
  17. I'll take them if you take PayPal and ship
  18. I made a bunch of these a few years back. They can be set so sensitive you could see a 1 1/2" fathead swimming or so it takes a decent tug to pull them down. Only problem I've got with them is everyone I know wants me to make them a set just like mine. Got the rods pre rigged at sheels for about $7. I use them for dead sticks all the time and for perch in deep water I'll set it up with a open water perch rig with 2 minnows and a heavy sinker and can drop it down fast. No drag tho so better be prepared for when a big one bites. https://youtu.be/DUNeUPoKbiY
  19. Great lures for sure but they must not fit in the spoon crank box that good. Lol
