The major difference between Ocean waves & Big-O waves is that Big-O waves are much much steeper.  So watch your weather!  3 ft waves on Big-O will really bounce you around.

Nice looking boat.  Winds generally pick up on Big-O around 9:30-10:00ish am.  Winds at 15 knt out of west & Mexico can get real rough.  Good luck & stay safe out there.

As to depth, check out the weather forecast links on the left side of site.  "Great lakes coast forecast" does a good job of temp at depth.  Look for the 54F and below.  That will give you a great idea as to where to start withy your riggers.

"bumper"?  What we used to call "snubbers"?  I don't use them.  I run copoly to the flasher then straight mono to the fly.  12 lines & 2 guys on a 16 ft'r?  More power to you.  Some charters run that many lines around here, but they have 10 ft beams and keep their lines separated real well.   Boards are pretty hard to get out a ways if there's a chop on the lake.  Also, Kings are a lot more energetic than Lakers or Landlocks and most will cover a lot of water.
