    salt water reel for muskie ?

    A well built saltwater reel would handle a muskie fight with zero issues. Many 15-20lb saltwater fish fight harder and longer than any muskie that's ever swum, not even close. However that reel might not stand up to long term casting and reeling of the large muskie baits that are often used now. The salt water reel is also likely geared for fast lure retrieves that are needed for saltwater and that would work against you as well.

    illegally introduced walleye

    And a lake with those types of fish tend to be more of a delicate balance of chemistry and organisms than most of the lakes around here that most of use are used to.

    illegally introduced walleye

    From National Geographic: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/animals/2018/10/wildlife-watch-news-forensics-fish-ear-bones-crime/?cmpid=org=ngp::mc=social::src=facebook::cmp=editorial::add=fb20181012animals-fishearbones::rid=&sf199843136=1 State biologists discovered two illegally introduced walleyes, a carnivorous species that grows to about two feet long, in Swan Lake, in northwestern Montana. The scientists had been netting for lake trout, another invasive species, when they serendipitously caught the walleyes and took them back to the lab for analysis.

    A Jiggy Jiggy Report!!!

    Are you seeing more spruce? Very small sample, but in 2 trips we've seen a far higher number of spruce to ruffed and in 2 different regions.

    Inflatable Life Jackets

    The level of protection some foam on a pfd is going to provide is being over estimated and will not keep your face out of the water if you are unconscious. People do have the ability to make a choice, just make sure you understand what those choices are.

    Inflatable Life Jackets

    They are infinitely better than no life jacket or pfd. Another key thing to remember is that the standard pfds that are often used, if worn, will not keep an unconscious adult's face out of the water. Only life jackets do that and most of the inflatables are that (there are those belt type ones that are not life jackets). Another factor is that if the inflatable is not worn it does not count as a floatation device. I always have a standard life jacket on board for me in case I take my inflatable off and forget to put it back on. What's your life worth to you? No one plans on falling overboard.

    Lost rod and reel

    Ya, it was his first very own rod and reel and he feels pretty bad. The flip side is he isn't going to miss out on a fishing trip because of it and maybe he'll learn a lesson on keeping track of his stuff. All part of growing up.

    Lost rod and reel

    My son left his rod and reel (he remembered his sister's) at the launch Saturday September 8th. Pflueger reel, Berkley rod, bright yellow braid, may have had a pop-r style lure on it. Went back Sunday and is wasn't there. Reward. Call or text me at 705 795 6579. Thanks.

    Another heads up, TORNADO WARNING

    Weather is complex and clearly beyond most people. The tornados called for on Monday touched down not far from here. I went out side just before the warnings started and there wasn't a breath of wind nor rain. It was still and there wasn't a sound, the bugs and birds knew something was up. It stayed like that and even the satellite never went down. The system that the tornadoes sprung from went right over out house but we would have barely noticed. That doesn't mean we weren't in some danger if a bird had farted at just the right/wrong time.
