5/24/19 Have a great
Memorial Day Weekend. Good news for central
Lk. MI ports is we're finally getting to the mid-40s
for down temp. There is no stratification
according to the Ludington down-temp buoy. So,
what Kings there are? ...could be lurking from the
surface to down deep. Warming waters trigger
spawning runs by Alewives. This is another
reel-fact to be aware of as the 2019 season marches
5/23/19 Weather for our
upcoming Memorial Day Weekend looks just OK.
This Saturday is predicted to be the warmest day of
2019 thus far. Thunderstorms are forecast, but
not all day events. There are windows to go
Installed a new link on the Great Lakes info page to
the South Haven down temp date buoy just like the
one in Ludington, MI. South Haven has 7 more
degrees of water temp 49° down at ~50' compared to
Ludington's 42°. 7° is a world of difference
early in the season when it comes to fish and bait

5/22/19 Busy this
morning with orders and shipping ASAP. Did
notice the amount of original products we offer.
Ball Chain Coast Locks, Cushioned Crimps, Diver
Rings, Super Snubbers™, Fly Flippers, S. Bombs and
our Salmon Buster ™ Spoons are not knockoffs.
Designing tackle to solve problems is one step at a
time process. So, I guess I'm kinda unique, by
not duplicating other manufacturer's tackle lineups.
Then, flooding the market with cheapie copies from
stolen ideas/products by others who did it first!
5/21/19 Plan was to fish
Lk. MI this morning out of Manistee, or Ludington,
MI. Honestly, I'm just wore out by our
unseasonably cold spring. Not wanting to deal
with 32° this am.
Monofilament line breakage is from underperformance.
That's only be made worse by overpaying for it.
Breaking lines cost tackle and more importantly
Broke a big Laker off a while back. What
broke? ...the 15# Vicious Fluorocarbon leader.
Not the mainline of my standby, Triple Fish mono that
has it roots dating back to originator/inventor,
Ochert in Germany during the late 1940s.
5/20/19 Manistee, MI's
"Tight Lines for Troops" pulled off another highly
successful free tournament. Close to 50 boats
took part in taking our former service members for a
great day of fishing on Lk. MI in homage to our

Winning fish was a 19.5 lb. King caught aboard the
"Indian Giver." Lake Trout were the
predominate species, but there was some Kings taken.
With our late spring? ...Manistee could be setting
up for an outstanding King fishery this Memorial Day
Weekend. If we get SW wind and warmer temps?
5/19/19 Have a great Sunday.
Weather for Manistee is a lot better than predicted.
stress, as a safety issue, DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY into
the 51 LED Black Lights we're selling at the
webstore. A few brief seconds is tolerable.
