6/23/18 1st weekend of
official summer of 2018. Be sure to enjoy it!
Mine will be spent curing boat trailer ills.
This is the second go-round in this deal. Just
was not happy with the replacement surge brake
master cylinder. So, bit the bullet for a
pricey electric 1600 psi conversion unit that will
lock up the tandem axel disc brakes if need be.
Taking care of yourself and boat on short, or long
trips begins with the often overlooked boat trailer
that's last on the list to get any love.
6/22/18 Have a great
weekend. My time will be spent upgrading my
boat trailer brakes from surge disc to electric
disc. Safety and the grief saved makes this
switch cheap when you compared to rear ending the
vehicle ahead of you in a panic stop.
6/21/18 Fishing today!
This trip will be a late start, hope to be setting
lines by 8am. Finding and marking the anchor
for the net in the 13s is more important than
6am update: orders came in overnight. Shipping
orders this morning means being a landlubber and no
fishing for yours truly. The URL (web
address) of the Ludington down temp data buoy 45024
has been problematic for our
Great Lakes info page.
Seems to be finally working now:

6/20/18 Looks like
tomorrow there's a decent window to fish Lk. MI.
Plan is to locate the king anchor on the net in the
13s. Then, build a printable page. My
guess is we'll have more trap nets in the not too
distant future and want to stay on top of this
have no high hopes on the fish tomorrow unless
there's a temp break over deep water holding fish.
Will look and seek, if the right conditions are
6/19/18 The image
of yesterday's trap net is not to scale when it
comes to the anchor in the far left of said image.
The lead, or king anchor can set several hundred
feet to the west of the west flag staff buoy.
I know from personal experience when I had a diver
get stuck in one, back in 2008 ...when we had 10
trap nets off Manistee, MI.
Need to locate this anchor for the net in the 13s to
make a printable page with the GPS coordinates.
Hopefully, this week I'll be able to get on the lake
to mark and locate.
It is of the utmost importance, you know where these
nets are! The cost of getting your fishing
gear stuck in one can cost you the long green to
6/18/18 Too busy in the
shop this weekend to work on the net locations page.
Posted an image of a trap net in case you haven't
seen one yet.
There's a lot of net to avoid that involve several
hundred feet. Plus, the floating net going
vertical up from the bottom. Think 30' up from
the bottom is the distance.
