3/23/18 Great news
for the coming week when we will finally see the
daytime high temps reach into the 50s for my part of
Manistee County, MI. It's been better then a
month (2/20/18) since 50° mark was last broken.
Still haven't seen Mr. Robin Redbreasts yet.
Going to take this weekend off from this website and
work on the boat. Swapping the radar and other
recently discovered boat fixes have my time spoken
for. Good to get this stuff done now, and not
lose days later this season.
Fishing reports from the extreme S end of Lk. MI
down by Chicago are excellent for spring Coho.
Word from Manistee-Ludington is some Browns and Coho
being caught on the beach in 10'-15' of water.
No word on central Lk. MI kings yet.
radar doesn't mean I've opted to fish the Great
Lakes without it. Swapping the 24 mile Furuno
1715 for a 18 mile Raymarine that plugs into my C127
multi-function display. Long range radar will
shoot over the horizon and see storm cells.
You'll find most of the time your radar is set on 1
mile or less during times restricted visibly.
Most brands on short range radar settings spins at
48 rpm, long range like 18 to 24 miles out, the spin
rate slows to 24 rpms.

48 rpms provides greater definition for close in
targets. When it's foggy radar is a godsend.

I'm selling my Furuno 1715 24 mile all in one radar
unit display, dome, manual, dust cover and cables.
Seen this unit mark sea gulls on the water 200' away
from my boat.
just don't have room for it on my small dashboard
and don't use it as much as I should. Reason?
...it limits my visibility. This radar was
fine until I upgraded to a C127 Raymarine
multi-functional display about 5 seasons ago.
The 12" C127takes up the room on the inside of the
hardtop where the 1715 was once mounted.
Spring 2018 begins today at 12:30 pm.
Possibility of fishing Lk. MI this Thursday
afternoon if the weather plays nice. Been
watching the S end of Lk. MI and that's a crap shoot
too with brisk N winds and temps not much better
than here in Manistee, MI.
Really can't decide with predicted temps in the 30s
and N wind predicted. Next week looks much
better with highs in mid 40s to splash the boat.
