Hello First Time
and Returning Visitors
discovered the most extensive information available to
the Great Lakes Angler and Charter Fisherman I've been
able to put together so far. Please keep in mind,
there's well over 150 different pages. Full of my
original content containing a complete
fishing tips, past results,
photos, You Tube videos, tricks & how to's.
Only here, are the constantly evolving techniques to
consistently catch more & larger fish are revealed in an
easy to read & understand format" ...Capt. John
Today's Update and, ...or
10/22/14 Redesigned diver ring is
moving along nicely. Will soon have a few prototypes
printed out. 3D printing means tackle models can be
made to test in the reel-world. This is a super, almost
instantaneous leg up
when you can fish with tackle, then makes edits as necessary
in-house, without a budget that breaks the bank.

Lots of new ideas floating around in head, because all of our
basic tackle is so behind the times. Tackle we use
nowadays hasn't really changed in the last 30 years. The design process
of making new tackle is fascinating, challenging and rewarding.
10/21/14 Here's results of last
week's poll about rating your 2014 Lk. MI season:
Only 18% rated the 2014 Lake MI season at 6, or better.
82% gave it a failing grade of 5, or worse. Most shocking
news was 1 in 7 fishermen voting, gave the fishing the lowest
score of a 1. This is not good news, cuz interest in this
fishery is now questionable.
Finally, have the lure tape, or metalized Mylar/vinyl page up
and running at my webstore. You can order lure tape for
flashers, meat heads, spoons, ladder backs, and inserts for your
divers. Please remember, lure tape on this page is only
available during the offseason, now thru December 1, 2014

10/20/14 Predicted Lk. MI conditions
look good the last half of this week. Waves at 1' or less
is hard too pass up. Not going to winterize my boat until
Last report I had from Manistee was Kings being caught on meat
125' to 150' down over 250' feet of water, but that was a good
Today is earmarked for web store work and redesign of the cupped
diver ring with moveable tabs that was not accomplished
10/19/14 Great things for this
coming week. P15 diver ring will be redesigned with
moveable tabs and 4 #6 stainless steel truss screws. I know this
is a small part, but it plays a huge part in how your divers
perform. Rings will test marketed soon.
Seas for this week looks very good on Wednesday the 22nd.
If the forecast stays favorable? ...fishing Lk. MI is on the
cupped diver ring
10/18/14 Stable weather by middle of
the coming week should mean calmer seas and a window to fish Lk.
MI again, as this season winds down.
No such thing in the fishing tackle business as an offseason.
Typically, sales slow down at the time of the year, but there's
still plenty to do. Fall is when new 2015 tackle is built.
Demand for our meat heads this year was at an all time high and
must be replenished. Plans for 2015 are ahead of schedule
& will be shared when the time comes.
