Update and, ...or Fishing Report?
2/17/19 Lot of folks
tell me they want to make their living from fishing.
Little do they know? ...you're going to work 3 times
as much for half the money. To make fishing
your livelihood it's a nonstop forced march 24/7.
I know, because I've been doing it since 1983.
Approaching 20 years with this daily log (7200
updates), rarely missing a day is reel testament to
the point I'm trying to make: the grass always looks
greener on the other side of the fence. Saving
grace is? ....enjoying everything we do.
Designing some new toys to play with the spring.
Been working on a new die that cuts the ladder-back
into the oval tape for more pizzazz.
blue-green color shifting tape does not get justice
in the photo I snapped. Like the new
fluorescent red pattern. It's very eye
catching. White Lightning tape over silver
with the ladder-back is a stunner too!
2019 Test Spoons
2/16/19 Have a great
Saturday. Realized been talking about my water
drone and have not shared pics of what it looks
like. Will be posting these Monday.
Everything has a following. Was surprised by
the amount of companies making drones.
Discovered FPV goggles that have been used by our
military for a long time.
sure FPV means "1st person view" where every
movement of the drone is displayed on a headset that
covers the top of your face.
can only imagine being right over the top a big King
400' away from the boat capturing scenes of the
ensuing battle. Hope to make this happen in
2/15/19 MDNR's free
fishing weekend that many will enjoy. Free
fishing weekends were always easy to book if you're
in charter/guide business. Don't think price
keeps potential fishermen away. Believe it's
the process of going to a store, or online fiddle
Behind in spoon production. This is good and
means people are purchasing. Know the spoons
are working from repeat orders and 2 to 6 of the
Drone video test shoots this weekend.
Looking forward to how the cam performs.
2/14/19 Valentine's Day
alert, please do something nice for your significant
other. It will keep peace in the household and
be a firm down payment on future fishing trips.
Learning curve on my new Swellpro Spry drone is akin
to climbing Mt. Everest. Takes 2 aps, the
controller to talks to the drone thru a special
This software is incredible that includes programmed
flight, circle mode, and follow the controller.
Plus, if it lands in the water upside down? ...the
drone can right itself. This high tech
is all from China, serving notice to the USA, we
cannot afford to get left behind.
Just about ready to shoot test 1080i HD video.
Video cam has 90 degrees of remote control up and
down rotation to zero in on the action. The
controller screen is a preview of what you're
shooting. Know this is going to raise the bar
for my fishing videos.
The scope of what we do is too vast to capture on
video from the boat. Great Lakes fishing is
covering a wide swath and millions of gallons of
water. Our trolling has evolved beyond
anything I could have dreamed of back in 1968.
This is when I became hooked on Salmon and Trout
fishing to the max. We fish for the most
stunningly gorgeous fresh water fish on this planet
2/13/19 Good news the
day before sweeties day. This is one of the
last weeks of winter when average daytime temp is
below freezing. Keep in the mind the word
average takes in account the highs and lows and is
no guarantee warm weather is here.
Last year at this time? ...Valentine's Day was in
the mid 40s and the following week in 2018 we hit
50°. Thoughts of an early spring are easy to
entertain, but spring will be here on it's own
schedule when Mr. Winter kicks the bucket.
My unscientific guess-o-matic
snowometer now stands at 80" for this season!
