Proctor- 218-628-2316

Big B's- 218-940-8959 (West Duluth)

I have had work done by both companies. Proctor generally will only do work at their location, meaning you will have to bring in a pattern or your boat there. Big B's has on site capabilities and I think you'll find his workmanship top notch and pricing very competitive. Both places are always busy so dont expect overnight service.

Hey Bottomfeeder,

You don't happen to park your boat outside do you? I'm looking for a cover for my father-in-law's boat. He parks it in the driveway and covers it up, but the last cover he had just rotted away in the sun (3-years time) until you could literally rip it with your hands. Looking for something a little more durable this time.

It spent the first ten years out in the sun although the garage and several large trees probably blocked a lot of the sun. It's spent the last ten now in a garage.

      I have had good luck with a #4 red hook. About 5-6' of 10lb mono and tie the hook directly to the line. Hook the minnow along the back.

      Fished Owasso last summer for the first time since the winter kill, caught one bass in 4 hours. My wife was fishing for pan fish and didn't get a nibble. You might want to look for another lake. CW

      I use about a 6' leader of 10lb flouro tied to my main line with a small barrel swivel. As far as hooks go I don't use just one. I prefer a treble of some sort, usually a small glow spoon. If it's a single hook I lean towards bigger is better, but also in glow. Set it up at your desired depth and don't just forget about it. Check it, move it, check it, move it. You can cover a good amount of water if you aren't lazy about it. Also I use just a simple bobber tie for my depth marker instead of those little bobbers. No real reason why that's just what I'm used to. Good luck, half the fun is learning what works best for you.

      I use to love fishing out on Sherman's and I will have to say holy craap that is a long ride over from Rockys.

      Hey everyone, picked up a frabil insulated tip up last weekend and I want to use it for a set line for walleyes when I want to set up another line in different depths. So I put about 100 years of 20 pound braid tip up line on it. My question is what do I use for my leader? I've herd mono and flouro work good but I don't know which is best? And as far as hooks go what to you guys use? Single red hook? Treble? Sure set? Thanks!
