Crappiekeith, question for you...

I seen in one of your earlier pics here, that you have the Anchor Mate on your boat. I also see that you have the crank mounted on that back plate of your boat (Not sure what it's called). How does that work for winding the rope up evenly? Do you have to guide the rope on? And are you happy with the Anchor Mate?

Thanks for the quick response. Can I ask one more thing? I have seen them mounted on the inside of the boat, and then a line leveler (A pulley of sorts) about 12 inches in front of the reel and then two line guides before it goes to the anchor. Is there a line leveler on your dad's even with the reel mounted up on top of the back of the boat?

I am asking these questions, because I don't want to spend the money and then not have it work. And I would prefer to have the reel mounted on the back like on your Dad's boat, it would be out of the way. I appreciate you taking the time to answer the questions....

He has small pulleys mounted on ever seat to draw the line back.

As the line builds it drops on the spool.Plus with a smaller dia.line there's not much build up.

      It's been interesting. Like everyone, when you first discover these forums, you feel part of a small group and want to share everything. But then you realize the vast depth of the internet and how many people are actually seeing what you post. Then it's like whoa!  Once I saw the impacts first hand of what a popular thread did to a fishery it significantly changed my opinion on these forums. They are great, but tread lightly.   And yes, with the evolution fishing comforts, there has been an huge increase in pressure across the board. I just worry about lake trout the most because of the lack of info out there about them and the complete lack of management by the DNR. Every species seems to have a "group" pushing the DNR for increased management and educating the public. Lake trout don't have that. T.U. does a lot for stream trout, but nothing for lakers. Not sure where our trout stamp money is going anymore, aside for stocking rainbows and loopers. Seems there should be added attention on a few of the more popular lake trout lakes keeping tabs on them.

      Caught a 33 and 36" on the rocks this weekend. I've never been successful targeting them. But always seem to catch some here and there.

      Check out Raven Lake in Ontario. I've seen their ad in Outdoor News saying $240/week per person. I've been meaning to check this out and see what it includes as far as accommodations, boats etc.
