    Electronics

    Supply each Graph directly from the battery with the correct size conductor and fuse for protection. I used 10awg to a blue sea 6 circuit fuse panel with the integrated negative bar, found it all at http://www.bestboatwire.com/ worked like a charm. Also, maybe but not likely you are getting radio interference from the live well motor.

    Atlantic Salmon

    Limit is 3 per license. If you are coming I'd also set aside a day for walleyes in port huron.

    Atlantic Salmon

    For your viewing pleasure, A couple Fine Atlantics- a Lake Huron/St. Clair River Sturgeon and a Grizzly Bear I found in Yellowstone NP. just for fun.

    Atlantic Salmon

    Port Huron, Lexington Harbor, Port Sanilac. These would be "open lake" trolling harbors. In the North Channel (lk. st.clair) "Deckers Landing" would be "river trolling". We are using small body baits and small brightly colored spoons (mini streaks and small warrior spoons) and body baits would be in the 2" range. Also small terminal tackle and lightweight flouro leaders ( 8-10 or 12#) presented on planar boards fished generally in the top 1/3 of the water column. Our atlantics will come out of temp often. Now, we also have a good steelhead fishery which occupies the same space in the water it is possible to hook up a good steelhead on this light weight tackle--- just be aware. For additional details try " Andersons Pro-Bait" in Port Huron for more tips. They have recently hosted a seminar specifically on Southern Huron Atlantics. you tube "fish church". Atlantic are also routinely caught through the ice in Lexington Harbor and Port Sanilac to a slightly lesser frequency. The up coming Fishing-411 episode was filmed in Port Huron FYE.

    Best releases?

    We run Blacks at the ball. And the Chamberlain stacker to be very useful. If Im fishing with some first timers Ill switch out to the heavy tension Offshore as I think they are easier for newbs to read when draggin skippies.

    Rubber Bands and In-Line Planer Boards

    This was exactly Mathews response, sorry I missed this earlier. If you are going to use 19 strand as a backer, on a planer board you are going to have to "deal with a rubber band breaking. As for my boat: were staying with 50# power pro backing.

    Fishmaster, you were ready my mind.

    Rubber Bands and In-Line Planer Boards

    DId some research, I'm "caught up" now on the principle of the 19 allowing the weighted steel to continue to sink. I could add this: on occasion we have used a 2" length of surgical tubing, split length wise, to shield dacron (lead core) an clamping that directly into an OR 18 sucessfully both catching fish and protecting the dacron. Just some food for thought on this. I'm an automotive engineer, I'll be spending some time today working on a solution.

    Well, there you go. Outstanding customer service. Poor marketing........... but at least their honest and that goes along ways too.

    Rubber Bands and In-Line Planer Boards

    I will ask, Most people I know are using 50# power-pro braid as a backing. Our Off-shore planar boards are rigged with a Sams Pro release up front and the snapper release out back. We will often run 4 boards per side up to a 400'er on the magnum board. these set ups just require a separate rod and real for each length of weighted steel. I find it peculiar how cultures vary from one great lake to another. Maybee we'll both learn something.

    Rubber Bands and In-Line Planer Boards

    Does 19strand sink at the same rate as 45#Torpedo weighted steel? I'm going to punt on that. However Im in a seminar Sunday am with the owner of Torpedo products I'll try to get some clarity and pass that along.

    Rubber Bands and In-Line Planer Boards

    Why not use 50# braid as backing and a SAMs pro release on the board? If you absolutely had to use 19strand as a backer simply segment in a short piece of braid to attach to the board. Otherwise see Websters abridged for "Wheel"

    Season right around the corner

    I like 39.5°F on the surface with 3 or 4' of visibility in teal colored water. What will the calendar say at that time..........who knows! p.s' I'm dying too!
