Re: Lake Michigan Chinook vs Lake Trout plants

Adam, That chart and statistics can be interpreted differently. One reason hatchery chinook aren't caught as much is the more than 80% cuts in plants. And as I posted, before you posted this again, is the unreliability of natural reproduction. I hope you don't want your fishery to depend upon that. ...

Re: 2017 Fishin tales

Sure wish it was still mailed out for all issues. I know Bob had time issues that prevented that sometimes in 2016, but I hope we can get it back in the mail. I hate trying to read a magazine online.

How I Repaired Leaking Rivets On My 1975 Aluminum Starcraft Boat

How I Repaired Leaking Rivets On My 1975 Aluminum Starcraft Boat by Steve Hamilton This is from an older posting on our old message board. I thought it may still be of value.
