    Re: Advice for Casters/Drifters

    Wow, 6 adults and 2 kids in one boat casting...sounds like a perfect recipe for a trip to the emergency room to get hooks removed from someone's head. It's impressive that you were able to catch...

    Re: Inline trolling boards

    It gives the fish more leverage to pull the hooks out too, as it is swinging around. You end up removing it to re-set it anyway, so I would rather just take it off before I net the fish. I also...

    Re: Island report 5/19/22

    Wow, you really covered the spectrum with baits. Nice report. Did you run various stuff at different times, or were you running all of that at the same time? The reason that I ask is that...

    Re: Advice for Casters/Drifters

    That is very sound information. One additional point. Different baits, weights and lines will allow the bait to sink at different rates. Therefore, on your first cast, start counting when it...

    Re: Inline trolling boards

    I use the black pinch clips on the front of mine and then the red ones in the back. When we get a fish, we pop the front release off, so the board falls back to the center, but the board does not...

    Re: Fishing Day 2 with Jim and Gary 5/18/2022

    We've all had those moments at the ramp, or with boats in general. Last summer I was in a hurry to launch, as I knew I only had about 2 hours before a storm was coming. Launched the boat into...

    Re: Fishing with John 5/10/2022

    Awesome, thanks! Gotta love “Big Bad Bill”. Shout out to Kevin Collins who was my co-designer on that one, and his late father, the original “Big Bad Bill” who inspired the bait in the first...

    Re: Fishing with Mark and Jim 5/12/2022

    The easiest solution would be to get two trolling bags (ie drift-socks) to slow down your boat. However, I would never venture onto the Great Lakes w/o a kicker. For safety reasons, if nothing...

    I am on it. I will get some painted up this weekend. I will send you pics of it when I get it done and let you know when I get it added to my catalog. Tight lines!
  10. Awesome trolling bite near the D-River in Erie

    Made it out again near the D-River earlier this week on my buddy Jim's boat. We started out in some greenish stained water that looked perfect for trolling cranks, but after 10-12 white bass, we...

    Re: Fishing with John 5/10/2022

    Thanks again for your "shout-out" about "Fermi-Nuff". After your last post, I sold out of them very quickly. I made 20 more of them and half of those are already gone. I can't make them fast...

    Re: 2022 Erie trip for the Crooked Hook

    BTW, for anyone that tried to purchase these patterns last week (Fermi-Nuff or Pair-a-dice), I have them back in stock now. I was on my week-long fishing trip with my dad, cousin and uncle, so I...

    Re: Rigging big board tow planer boards

    Like the previous poster said, it really depends on the type of boat you are running, your budget and other variables. I have a set of big boards with a mast, and in-line planers. I I have a...

  16. Saturday Morning Report - Jigging then Trolling

    Made it out Saturday morning with a couple guys. Tried jigging in the D-River first for an hour, but that was no good. We put away the jigging gear and ran out into the Lake. Got set up for...

    So at least you know you were at the right port. Just some other small detail must have been off. That's the thing about fishing. You can have most things right and miss one detail and get...

  19. Re: Day 4 Fishing with "Doc", Tom, and Heath 4/5/2022

    We only ran 4 boards per side, because my guys are from MN/SD and can't run more than one and two lines, respectively, so we kept it simple.

    Nice job Captain! I saw that line in your post and...

    Re: Time of day to fish thoughts

    Answer: When I can get out. There is no right answer on this. It all depends on the day, the conditions, the crowds, etc. For example, if I am fishing stained water, or especially muddy...
  23. Re: Jigging sucked, but the trolling bite was on!

    We were in MI waters, between Fermi and the D-River mouth. Look for the stained water. Don't be afraid to fish really shallow this time of the year. Especially if the wind is pushing warmer...
  24. Jigging sucked, but the trolling bite was on!

    We started out jigging in the lower D-River, but after 90 mins of nothing, we put the jigging rods away and went to the lake. We found some dirty water in shallow that was 40 degrees (vs 37 in...
