Today's Update and, ...or Fishing Report?
2/17/20 Photo of the
helm in my 1998 Grumman16' aluminum boat is today's
subject. This is the before pic without the
sonar, radio and new hour meter. Will post the
completed project when the weather allows more work
to be done in the pole barn.
This is the important business part of the boat when
instrumentation monitors gas level,
charge/discharge, trim/tilt, VHF radio, rpms and
sonar GPS. Just because a boat is is
borderline vintage, don't mean it can't be nice and
for helm pic
should have a budget. Mine for 16' Grumman
aluminum was to keep the cost below a 1000 bucks for
the electronics. Bought a Raymarine Element 9"
screen late last season on sale. Raymarine is
excellent at upgrades for their operating systems.
Elements 2019 model had a download to update the OS.

of one of our 2020 tackle specials listed as "must

Diamond hook file that requires 2-3 light touches at
shallow angle to turn a hook sticky needle point
sharp is a part of the deal too.
Included is a 51 LED UV black light for instant glow
lure charges. Best I've found so far. A
pound spool of mono, hook file and UV light is a
heck of a deal all 39.95!
2/14/20 News from the S
end of Lk. MI is boats are catching Coho at St. Joe
and New Buffalo, MI. This is the opening shot
of the 2020 big lake season and the earliest I've
heard boats in action. This info came to us
thru the weekly MDNR Fishing Reports email.
range weather says the end of next week we'll be
pushing 40°. Weather for now is a yoyo with
single digit cold snaps and above freezing temps.
I'm feeling a sense of urgency to get both my boats
ready. My target launch date is March 15th, or
as soon as the City of Manistee puts a few docks in.
