    I'd bet the farm on it. 12 lbers don't dump 200 feet of line off after hitting on a rigger and I got a decent look at it before it was gone forever

    Made it to the launch at 7:30pm. Went 0-1 in 130 fow 200 back on a dipsy. Lots of bait and marks in the 130-115 fow range.

    Popular question. The tackle box usually has meat.

    The Frankfort Tackle Box, right across the street from the City launch. In Traverse City, Traverse Bay Tackle (Shooters, before Chums Corners) has meat.

    Tackle box will have strips for meat rigs I also found it at the Mobil station in Benzie if they don’t.
