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 an 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
3/12/14 Lost to first fight
in the epic battle of conquering 3D parts build.
Decided to get a refund and go with another
manufacturer. Burned myself going cheap.
Which, I've done more often, than not. You get
what you pay for is the reel-fact.
Next 3D machine will be the higher end of mid level with
the best reviews on Amazon with more user friendly
software (I hope). Look for a 6 week wait.
Crappies aka Specks in FL are hitting small jigs tipped
with minnows just like up home in MI. Locals here
prefer them for the table.

3/11/14 It was a 10-8 round
in my 3D printer battles with me losing bigtime.
Machine was damaged during shipping. Today, I'm
shipping back it to the printer doctor.
Installing the software was a good 3 hour trip to the
darkside. 3 subprograms have to work in unison
that can only happen in advanced admin configuration.
Definitely not plug and play, as this technology is a
long-long-long ways from being perfected.
I did not buy a high end printer due to the fact
whatever you buy, it's going to be obsolete by next
year. Company I purchased from has only been in
business about a year and their on the 3rd revised

3/10/14 Project 2015 begins
later today when UPS delivers my 3D printer to where I'm
at in FL. Project 2015 is about developing new
tackle to debut later this year, or in 2015.
My 3D printer can make prototypes in any size and shape
I want for water testing. But first I have to know
how to run the printer for successful builds/prints.
OK, right about now you're asking yourself about today's
featured pic of Acetone and hair spray. Before you
can do builds, the plastic material has to stick to a
heated borosilicate bed platform.
Click Acetone & hair spray
Acetone is to clean, hair spray is to make the surface
tacky for the hot .175" extruded ABS filament that's
255 degree Celsius, or 491 degrees Fahrenheit. Kapton tape is best, but shipping time constraints means
waiting until I'm home in Manistee, MI.
This is going to be an very exciting ground breaking year.
You'll be able
to watch the progress in a step by step 3D build
article/videos that's in the planning stages.
It's gonna be FUN "tackling" this new technology!!
3/9/14 Last night was when
we set out clocks forward one hour to adjust from EST to Daylight
Saving Time. Like usual, I forgot.
Got a kick
