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.

      Out tonight with the kids, honeycomb ice on the top 2 inches with water over the sheet of thick ice. Exposed shorelines are soft, my dog and kids broke through while walking. Even though the shores are shot for driving I’m guessing we’ll have good walkable ice (waders) for a while...

      Haha - ya I spose!  Only we weren’t shooting paper.  Painted steel hanging targets with a spotter and spotting scope. Drive to em to paint em but no retrieval.

      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.

      Nice @AlwaysFishing23!   We drove by there last night and were tempted to pop a few holes but had burgers on the brain too much.   I got over half of the bottom part of the list done today and 1 part of the top list done, which was much more fun!   A friends custom 6.5 dialed in.  Started at 500 yards and finished at 1000; 7 mph cross wind.  My favorite hits were the 4 inch circle at 550; the 4”x5” plate at 700 and managing a 12 inch 3 shot group at 1000.  Man, he’s got this baby down.

      Wow the fish were on fire but little. I caught so many 4-7 inch gills and one 3 over 7 inches. Crappies were harder to come by and 5-7 inches.

      Got out fishing this morning at about 9am and was off by 2. Had a group of good buddies join and ended with 3 limits of big gills (8”-9.5”),  (limit on this lake is 10 per person per day) 2 jumbo perch, 3 decent pike, and 3 largemouth ( all pike and bass were released immediately as they are out of season). AWESOME day with a good group of buds. Sight fishing in 4-5FOW made the action even more fun😁 if you were able to get out it was a great day to be out with friends, family or the kiddos.

      We get mailboat delivery on Black Duck Island (east Frazer Bay) starting around the 1st of June through the first week of September. Other times, the Tower PO is good about holding mail. Aronson Marina runs the mailboat and could answer your question about Portage Bay.  Good luck, Dick
