MULL BLOG Coho Time for Lip-Stix

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

“Wheel of Fortune” fans will recognize that headline as a “Before And After” challenge. But let me tell you what it means. One of my favorite stickbaits for early season cohos and browns on the Great Lakes has been the Brad’s Lip-Stix. Boy was I sad when I heard they were discontinued. Not that Challenger Minnows, Reef Runner Little Rippers, Smithwick Rogues, Bombers, ThunderSticks, Bay Rats, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera don’t work, I just really liked some of the colors available in the Lip-Stix.  Read Full Story

Mull BLOG JBL Rocks the Fishes

Monday, March 16, 2015

Ongoing debate: What music blasted (or played softly) into the depths makes salmon bite best? Some say none, but lots of guys, maybe not so serious about catching fish, really believe certain tunes work better than others. Check out the thread and weigh in with your favorite over in Let's Talk Salmon Fishing. For now, here's a release a sweet-looking sound system receiver for your boat from JBL. –Dave Mull  Read Full Story

MULL BLOG Solar Lights for the Floating Cottage

Friday, March 13, 2015

As temperatures warm, those big boats in storage start calling our names, ready to get some water under their hulls and provide us with that weekend getaway at the marina. Here are some nifty lighting products you can just clamp on your railing to illuminate your boat with a sort of exterior night-light that shuts off when the sun comes up. It also uses the sun's rays to recharge itself for another illuminated evening. –Dave Mull  Read Full Story

MULL BLOG One more ice fishing story

Thursday, March 12, 2015

Here in Southern Michigan we're having a wonderful break from  the sub-zero temperatures we had way too many days over the winter. With highs in the 50s each day, most of our thoughts are turning to getting boats and jigging rods ready for walleyes and trolling rods ready for coho salmon. But we also know that ice fishing is going to last for awhile--a friend in Northern Indiana just reported 16 inches of ice on Lake Wawasee, a big natural lake that has lots of panfish and pike among other things swimming its depths. So here's one last ice fishing story that has some good info! –Dave Mull  Read Full Story

MULL BLOG Keep hidden firepower and more under deck plates

Thursday, March 05, 2015

OK, you're out on Lake Ontario and are suddenly boarded by a band of Canadian pirates who say stuff like "ARRRR, EH?" and turn your day into a possible script for "Die Hard 17: Die Like an Alewife." Fortunately for you, you stowed a Glock 9 mm semi-automatic handgun in the ditty bag underneath the splashwell access plate you use to frequently check for golden retriever fur in your bilge pump. You write the rest of the script from there, but before you do, check out this release on this handy item from Beckson Marine to install on your boat. – Dave Mull  Read Full Story

As some of you know, an inflatable Personal Flotation Device I brought along on a Lake Michigan fishing trip saved a fellow crew member's life a couple of summers ago when our boat took on water and sank five miles from shore. If there's one habit you need to change in the upcoming season, it's to wear a PFD every time out, and it goes without saying that you should make sure all the kids aboard are wearing them too. Here's a release from our friends at Full Throttle (the folks who made the PFD that saved my buddy) about a new PFD design for smaller kids. – Dave Mull  Read Full Story

Hard to imagine, but long-term weather forecasts for Southern Michigan say we're going to see 50 degrees within about two weeks. That means that all the ice fishing gear, including clothing is going on sale. Now's the time to buy to get out on the ice for the next two weeks and to have handy for next season.
