I found a new pole holder that no shore fisherman should be without. Its called a sonic poleholder. Nifty little unit.
It sends off a beep and lights up when there is a bite. It runs off a 9v battery and you can adjust the sensitivity, so if your in the current just tighten the wing nut.
It comes in 2 parts. the holder is HD plastic and about 20in long, the other part is the stake that goes into the plastic part,
Its about 20in also and holds well in the mud. Its a bout $20 but if you have ever lost a nice rod & reel proped up on a forked stick
its worth it. I have 2, one for me and one for my daughter. Keeps the kids from loosing poles too. They do make attachments for boats also. I found mine in a bait shop in Grand Rapids and havent seen them around in the F-M area.They did have a small artical on it in the last catfish insider.
I just figgured i would share this with you because its another tool to help from missing a bite at night, or having that big piggie take off with your rod.

Tight lines. (BEEP!)

I'm up for that Ordie. Would that be Cabellas in the EGF?

I have an Abu with a clicker but hard to hear when fishing by the Dams. I always use a holder anyway and that would be the perfect ticket.

      I had a good opener, also with ten. We should have taken a lot more, but shooting, jitters, and other factors prevented it (as usual). For us, Sunday was really slow, but still managed to bag a few.

      That's a good idea thanks.

      We love it when we catch a muskie, but it can be such a grind!

      Just got back from five days on the lake. We were fishing for walleye in the end fun with limits already taken. We are on an island and the dock bite was very good. Slip bobbers with either rainbows or chubs. Also, walking the island and casting tubes was also productive for larger walleye. Off the point of the island, under dock, near rocks. I guess that means we caught most of our fish shallow. Wind was our friend, to a point. Didn't like some of the gusts but wind blown shore and points were key. Follow the wind.   Smallmouth were not shallow. We did work some shoreline but did not find those fish up shallow. We did run into some smallmouth on the points, etc deeper while fishing for walleye.

      I had a good opener.  Two friends and I got 10 ducks and with some better shooting we could probably had 12 or 13.  It was significantly better than the last two openers and certainly better than I expected.  We had nice mixed bag of wood ducks, mallards, teal, and even got a shoveler.  It was very comfortable out there too.  Was nice not to sit there and roast away in my chest waders this time.

      If that is a new 2018 rig I would call the MFG and see what they think?  If you have a warranty on it, that may invalidate it?

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down

      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff
