Those UST's are a good rod for the price. I've only broken one and I try hard to break rods.

Looks like a CV 45/ Power Pro. Thats a winning set up.

Cool sturgeon.

Crab

Postby waldo2382 » Wed Aug 03, 2011 10:04 am

Possumfoot - Those would be Bairdi Tanner Crab, a type of "Snow Crab" the restaraunts and stores have given the name. Another type of Tanner crab that is rather famous is the Opilio, which is chased in that tv show Deadliest Catch. The Bairdi have a very short and small commercial fishery around Kodiak, so those don't get as wide spread to markets. Bairdi tend to be a lot bigger and some say richer tasting. I'm fishing for these crab in 400' of water about 5 miles offshore.

Fished Lake Michigan this past weekend. Had a good mix of fish. Kings, browns, steelhead and lake trout.
Biggest fish was 18lbs and I got to reel in all 430 feet of line it took out, would have been alot easier had the dipsy released :fingerhead: .

I would love to post some fish pics. But......... evidently not gonna happen this year. My little brother passed away almost 2 years ago. I got all his fishing gear, and have incorporated it into my tackle box. He is evidently screwing with me. When I was in college here in Bozeman, more than 30 years ago now, my buddies and I were very poor. If we didn't catch fish, we didn't have much to eat. So we got pretty good at it. Ordinarily, I can catch fish in a mud puddle. But now, I think with my brothers influence, it just ain't happenin this summer. In a 19 day stretch, 16 days fishing, with no luck at all. I did get to watch a 7 year old girl catch a really nice rainbow though. About a 4.5 pounder. That did wonders for my ego. Maybe it's time to cash it in this summer, and go play some golf. I already know I suck at that, so there shouldn't be any surprises. Oh well. It has been great seeing that the rest of you can still catch fish. Damn nice fish too. Congrats to all for your successes. Keep em coming. I can at least live vicariously thru you.

14lb Permit, caught this afternoon. Like trying to land a submarine.

14lb Snook, ahh how I love snook. As for fighters they have it all, the jumps, runs, and dives. Oh and they are delicious.
It's a fact that 70 percent of the people who purchase heavier tackle do so with the categorical I just lost a huge snook! Einstein Hairdo.The other 30 percent have either Tarpon Fever or are sporting a hand cramped into a claw from a deepwater grouper.

The steelhead are biting. When we get in to them it's a real goings on. We have another term for catching steelhead but this is a family forum.

Nice work J-Gun, are they getting any good ones over there? A fella here had a 34 yesterday and north of us they are getting nice ones. 25-low 30's.

Here's a 15.5 steelhead from this afternoon. 2nd biggest i've ever put the net on.

thanks Guys, we have been out a bit, catching lots of small ones and a few keepers but that was our first big one, we're getting it figured out :wink:

question for you fisherman, any of you guys run church boards, we have yellowbirds and offshores right now. we can run our offshores with a 2 oz torpedo weight but i don't think they could handle much more than that, was wondering about the church boards, every store locally stocks the walleye boards but not the 22 or 44 boards, the website doesn't give the dimensions of the 22, was wondering if it was any bigger and how it runs (I have heard the churches like to dive) also was thinking about just doing the 44's so i could run dipsys and bigger weights, just wondering how big of a PIA they are to reel back to the boat with a fish on them.

Nice steelhead Bill :thumbsup:

We haven't had very good populations of bait fish for a number of years now so you were lucky to catch a 20 pounder & the east side of the state was worse as you were lucky to get one over 10. This year the bait is coming back good and the fish are finally getting some better size. A lot of 20+ pound fish are being caught. I heard of a 32 pounder caught out of Ludington and that's the biggest I've heard of in close to 10 years. Man those big fish sure can pull!!
There has actually been so much bait that it has made the fishing harder as the fish are all full and are picky about what they eat.
