    Wow great work
  3. A buddy and I are heading to the Northwest Angle on Thursday for couple days. We have snowmobiles and Ontario licenses as well. Any general tips on what the lakers in that area like or dont like? We are looking more for quality than quantity too if that makes any difference. Thanks in advance for any help!
  4. Is this the weekend of the big push? Anyone think it is and gonna be out? And no I'm not talking about the one on my toilet this morning...

    Neighbor Guy, you shoot a 20 gauge for smaller birds like bufflehead and teal?
  6. Rigem right

    Yes I bought the kit a few years back when I first got into diver hunting. Its a solid kit and will have everything you need to get started hunting with long lines other than the decoys. I recommend.

    Thanks. I may have changed my mind. What do you guys know/think about the new Daiwa Lexa 300HD? Would I burn the gears by throwing a lot of 10-12 sized blades and mag bulldawgs up to pounders?
  8. Revo Toro Winch

    Yes I do realize the Saltist 30 can do everything the winch can and then some, but I guess the main thing I'm looking for is a reel that can handle large crankbaits, large bulldawgs, large jerkbaits, and large blades that doesn't make me feel like my forearm and wrist want to fall off after a couple hours. I realize the line pickup is slow, but I don't think I can throw a higher ratio low profile reel say 6:1 to 7:1 ish without burning the gears out after a season or two. Or am I mistaken?
  9. Revo Toro Winch

    I already own a Daiwa Saltist 30 6.1:1 for burning large bucktails and an Abu Ambassador 5.3:1 for mid to smaller sized baits and want to put something on my 3rd rod that I can throw bigger baits and bucktails without straining my hand, wrist, and forearm as much. Ive decided on the Abu Revo Toro Winch 4.6:1 reel for my next musky reel. My only question is whether to get the 50 or 60 size? Can anyone give me the pros and cons for each to help me make my decision? Thanks in advance for any input.
  10. Awesome. Thanks for the reports and pics as always!
