  1. 16 lbs! You are going deep.

      Normally between 15 to 80 feet, depending on the thermocline. 😉

      • What are you fishing for?

        Mostly Chinook salmon, but once in a while I like to find lunker Brown and Lake Trout near the bottom. When feeling frisky, I go for Rainbows off submerged drop-offs. Lake Huron has plenty of underwater structures, particularly a reef that stretches for hundreds of miles running generally from SE to NW. I prefer fishing there as fish love the currents and trapped warmer water on the eastern flank. Not many other boats out that far at dawn either, which I like, but starting out of harbour at 3AM is a little daunting for most, so they stay closer to shore.

      • When I saw the size of those weights I assumed ocean fishing, but Lake Huron would be about the same except for the quarry. Sounds like a good time.

        I can understand the confusion. The two cannonballs weigh 16 pounds combined but at 8 pounds apiece, they get me down where I want to be. The only caution is in making wide enough turns so that the lines don’t cross. No fun in that at all when it happens and I like long, long leads and turn constantly. Turning is a must because it has the bait rising and falling, slowing and speeding up.

        It’s an art. Maybe I’ll post a pic of my boat on here sometime.

      • That would be very cool. I love to see what your boat looks like. I’ve never visited the Great Lakes, but will have to sometime.

        I’ll be posting a pic in about 5 minutes.
