If you do not take the necessary
precautions? Experts say the most
likely way you'll become infected is
from the air you breathe. So, wear
a mask, or at least a scarf when you
have to go shopping. Rubber, or
Nitrile gloves must be worn too.
Bleach wipes? ...make your own by making
up a strong 1 to 3 mix. Keep at
least 6' away from other people.
Treat everyone like they're infected!
Stay home. Stay safe. Better
days are coming!
Today's Update and, ...or Fishing Report?
8/5/20 Being an
optimist, and Kings being scarce? ...this is could
be due to the cold spring and the fish just aren't
here in huge numbers yet. Do know, as of last
weekend, charter boats were targeting Lake Trout.
Have heard a few encouraging reports from S of
Ludington. So, let's wait and see how this
are a excellent charter fish, because LTs are a
bunch easier for customers to land.
Compared to doing battle with Kings Salmon over 20
There's is a
common thread in the fish reports I seen. When
you're marking bait, there will be Salmon around it.
Only problem is, the bait is moving a lot from day
China virus has severely limited my water time this
year. Compounded by no help in my shop which
is attached to my house. Hoping to change this
8/4/20 Best news that
came in from last weekend was Steve T's 31 pound
King Lk. MI out of the Port of Arcadia, MI.
Steve's been getting a King, or 2 before going down
on the deck in 100' of water picking on the Lake

King over 30 came on a competitor's spoon, Steve did
share his best spoon is the XG-Ghostbuster Salmon
Buster™ spoon 4.65 riding as a free slider.
been part of this website going back to the early
i2ks. 31 pounds is not his biggest. If
my memory serves me correctly, think he had a 34
pounder around 15 years ago. Reel fact is?
...any King over 30 is a hard fought trophy!
8/3/20 Yet to hear an
encouraging fish report as of last Friday from
Ludington, or Manistee. Seems the better King
Salmon reports are coming from Arcadia, MI N.

fiberglass is on my 1979 22' Sea Ray. Good
boats are hand laid. Cheaper boats use a
chopper gun spray process.
on the 2nd bilge pump install? Had all the
wiring, pump and switch for close to 2 years.
Finally, decided to stop procrastinating.

8/2/20 Posted a photo of
work in progress installing a 2nd auto bilge pump.
2 years ago an auto switch malfunction.
Flooding the motor well and ruined the starter.
This happened when I got a dock at Solbergs Marina.
Now known as Pier 1 Marina. We had an all
night gulley washer measured in inches of rain.

won't happen again. Installed 2 new bilge
pumps with auto/float switches. This required
disassemble of the transom fascia to run wires neat
when I got a seasonal dock to charter, you got to
know your dock buddies and everyone looked after
each other's boat like it was their own. If
any boat had a list, you'd check their bilge when
the owners were gone for a day, or 2.
result of losing the starter cost me the late season
fishing (October) for Lk. MI Steelhead out of
Manistee, MI. This won't happen again!
