So, even with the trolling motor issue taking a #priority over every thing else my good #friend Dave Foley and I did get to spend and salvage a #morning of mid #summer #fishing #July 1st on Lake Mitchell in Cadillac, Michigan. We pulled the Fish Bones Custom Lures leech rigs 31 feet behind the Gator Bait Tackle planer boards in 14 foot of #water with 1 oz bottom bouncers and inline weights for this nice #walleye and #northernpike. Switched over to the Abu Garcia MAX STX baitcasting reel on a Vendetta rod with a blue and silver Strike King Lure Company plastic worm wacky rigged for bass onto of the weedbeds along the west shoreline. Manage to pick up 2 nice #largemouthbass as we drifted.Made a trip down to Wonderland Marine West in Howell to drop off the Terrova and bought a new Minn Kota Ultrex and Humminbird Helix 12. Got the Ultrex installed last night and will finish up the Helix this morning. Should be back on the water tomorrow. Hoping we are through with boat issues for the rest of the summer. And the #fishing is only going to get better!Bait Caddy Berkley Fishing Clam Outdoors AFTCO Gator Outlaws fishing team Joe Duncan Pilgrims Village Fishing Shop ORCA Coolers Tote-Rite Proformance Supply Flo-Fast Kill Zone Fishing System PENN Fishing Shakespeare Fishing Plano Visit Greater Cadillac Visit Cadillac Michigan Cadillac Area Chamber of Commerce Missaukee Area Chamber of Commerce Houghton Lake Resorter Mackinaw Timbers Cabins Lake Cadillac Resort Evergreen Resort West Houghton Lake Campground Camp Cadillac CARMA Sport Fishing Charter Service Friends of Mitchell State Park Mitchell State Park Carl T.

It has been a long day!Took the Terrova to the Minn Kota authorized service center in Howell MI and wouldn't you know they are a dealer too.It will be 8 days before a tech looks at it. So I asked if they had a 36volt motor I could buy. A 6 hour drive and a big hit on the credit card and back home at 3:30. Got it put on the boat and I'm on page 9 of 36 in the instruction book. Should have it done sometime tomorrow. ...

We are dead in the water. The brand new Minn Kota 36 volt Terrova trolling motor quit today. Everything works but the motor that turns the prop so we have no cruise control or autopilot. Have to take it to their service center in Howell MI tomorrow morning. They said it won't even be looked at by a technician for 8 days.Needless to say I'm not satisfied with the motor, customer service and probably won't be any happier when I get it back from the service center. Had to cancel 8 trips so far. And the service center wants to charge a deposit in case it isn't covered under warranty.Sure wish there was a way that this post would reach 18000 viewers like my other posts do! ...

Another #family #friends type of #summer #outing on Houghton Lake #yesterday #morning. This young #lady caught her very first #northernpike and a very #Nice #largemouthbass! Lauren caught her first #walleye and the largest #pike of the day. We ended up with 4 pike, 1 walleye, 1 bass, 1 #crappie, several #perch and 4 #bull #bluegill. Even with a slightly lower barometric pressure and a slight Northeasterly wind they did well putting some nice #fish in the ORCA Coolers 58 quart cooler. Top Fish Bones Custom Lures leech rig #colors were #purple and #chartreuse, purple and #pink, #red and #white , #orange and white, #green and white so no real pattern to lock in on. Surface temperature dropped again to 69.9 because of the #coldfront and rain #tuesday night. Most of the #action came on bottom bouncers and the inline weights #running 30 to 35 feet behind the Gator Bait Tackle planer boards in 10 to 12 foot of water at 1.4 mph.Abu Garcia Bait Caddy Berkley Fishing AFTCO Clam Outdoors Ugly Stik Proformance Supply Flo-Fast Kill Zone Fishing System Shakespeare PENN Fishing Mack's Lure Mackinaw Timbers Cabins Pilgrims Village Fishing Shop Lake Cadillac Resort Houghton Lake Resorter Houghton Lake, MI Evergreen Resort Visit Cadillac Michigan Visit Greater Cadillac Missaukee Area Chamber of Commerce Cadillac Area Chamber of Commerce Pure Michigan Roscommon County Michigan Walleye News Michigan walleye fishing Michigan Walleye Fishing ...
