[20:01:42] Chrmn o the Bds: Yes on the automatic reel, it is under Riviera
[20:01:55] Reelmn(In): bruce, when can i get the strike indicators for your boards
[20:02:09] Chrmn o the Bds: Boards are a lot of fun esp. for kids and new fisherman

[20:03:12] Reelmn(In): who do we get the kit from
[20:03:26] Chrmn o the Bds: Not new boards, a kit to go on the existing ones. they will

[20:03:32] Just Look"N--MI: Bring alot to the PALACE SHOW Bruce
[20:03:42] clay(wy): sounds great
[20:03:58] oldben: what do i need to know to switch from salmon and boards to
walleyes and boards
[20:04:06] Chrmn o the Bds: all the retailers will have them by spring and they will be in
our newspaper and on our website soon.
[20:05:01] elf: what is your web address
[20:05:02] Chrmn o the Bds: old ben no real difference except that most walleye guys
only troll downwind
[20:05:16] reeltime(OH): how well do the automatic reels work on the big boards........4
[20:05:22] cb(oh): why only downwind?
[20:06:23] Jo'Eye: Bruce, can you use snap on wts. after the kit is put on, or do they
pull flags back?
[20:06:28] Chrmn o the Bds: they will handle a big board and come with 150 ft of line
[20:06:51] Chrmn o the Bds: better line control down wind and with the in-line boards
you get better action
[20:07:02] Just Look"N--MI: 200 lb line?
[20:07:21] oldben: what is the best speed to target as a starting point
[20:06:51] Chrmn o the Bds: better line control down wind and with the in-line boards
you get better action
[20:07:02] Just Look"N--MI: 200 lb line?
[20:07:21] oldben: what is the best speed to target as a starting point
[20:07:31] Chrmn o the Bds: snap wts are fine even larger body baits, the flag will go
back but not all the way down
[20:07:52] Chrmn o the Bds: 200# line also
[20:07:55] KG: bruce, describe your boat for `98
[20:08:28] Chrmn o the Bds: about 1.8to 2.0 for cranks and .5 to 1.5 for harnesses
[20:08:58] reeltime(OH): will the reels accept 300' of 200#
[20:09:01] Chrmn o the Bds: which one? I have a 19 Champion and a 23 Pro-Line
[20:09:12] Chrmn o the Bds: No on the 300 feet.
[20:09:28] Hank: Bruce, do you use an autopilot. If so, what kind do you recommend.
[20:10:22] Chrmn o the Bds: On the trolling kicker I use the TR-1 for both boats and an
autohelm on the main engine of the 23
[20:10:40] Reelmn(In): what is a good rod for pulling boards
[20:11:21] Chrmn o the Bds: I have a Pinpoint for my electric, it is really nice slow
trolling contours like Cumberland for stripers.
[20:11:31] Just Look"N--MI: Autohelm Sport pilot?
[20:11:42] Jo'Eye: Bruce, do you use Fireline in any situations?
[20:12:01] Chrmn o the Bds: any 7-8' rod suitable for downrigger fishing is good.
[20:12:09] Chrmn o the Bds: Sportpilot
[20:12:32] Just Look"N--MI: Same on my boat,works perfect
[20:12:48] Reelmn(In): how were the stripers at Cumberland
[20:12:52] Lemmen: which auto pilot do you like better
[20:13:03] Chrmn o the Bds: I use Fireline more than I thought I would especially where
you want to know you are on the bottom such as flatlining cranks or using bottom
[20:13:45] Chrmn o the Bds: Stripers are slow now the lake is down quite a bit. I am
planning on a mid march trip there though.
[20:14:21] walleye guru: hi mr Offshore
[20:14:24] oldben: bruce would you give us your web site
[20:14:25] Chrmn o the Bds: the tr-1 for trolling, whenI am running is when I use the
[20:14:45] Chrmn o the Bds: www.offshoretackle.com
[20:15:21] Lemmen: have you ever used the sport pilot for trolling? if so how doew it
[20:15:30] Reelmn(In): bruce, will you have anyone at the Indy show in Feb
[20:16:37] Chrmn o the Bds: Trolling with the sport was better at the 2mph range, but i
seldom use the 225 when trolling
[20:17:05] Walleye Hunter: what is an average for cost on getting set up with boards
[20:17:09] Chrmn o the Bds: I don't think so but ill try to find out.
[20:17:30] Chrmn o the Bds: about 20 for the board and 15 for the Tattle Flag.
[20:17:32] HPS: Hi Bruce caught about 50 eyes below the dam today
[20:18:30] Chrmn o the Bds: Lets hope Erie will be 50 fish days .
[20:18:44] Jo'Eye: What are your favorite cranks for deep (20' & down) eyes?
[20:19:46] Just Look"N--MI: How did you do on the bay last summer.I was at the south
end all the time.becaue of waves when I was there
[20:19:48] Chrmn o the Bds: I use Storm t-sticks Bomber 25's and Mann' stretch 20's
unless there is a front then it is stickbaits and snap-weights
[20:20:45] Chrmn o the Bds: The bay was good and I fished the Charity's and south
too. If the Bay doesn't get over 75 the fish will not leave.
[20:21:31] Just Look"N--MI: I missed the hogs at Charity when I was there to
rough,south was good
[20:21:50] Hank: Do you use worm harnesses very often?
[20:22:15] Chrmn o the Bds: My son Nick did good there in a MWT event fishing
alone, right on my PWT waypoints.
[20:23:04] Chrmn o the Bds: Lots of open water trolling is done with harnesses and I
use them when conditions are tough or if I find tight schools
[20:23:29] Just Look"N--MI: Harnesses or Double Troubles?Both?
[20:23:58] lundman(Wi): do you use them for suspended fish as well as bottom fish
[20:24:17] Chrmn o the Bds: Mostly harnesses, I have found that the snap weight will
usually outfish the doubles but are a bit more work
[20:24:41] Walleye Hunter: do you spend more time with cranks or rigs on the PWT?
[20:24:43] *** Cranky has left Walleye Central
[20:24:46] Chrmn o the Bds: Mostly suspended, I will go to bouncers for bottom
[20:24:52] KG: Bruce, whats your strategy for finding fish on new body of water?
[20:25:14] Chrmn o the Bds: Last year it was mostly live bait but this year will be
[20:25:36] Walleye Hunter: because of the boards?
[20:25:36] Reelmn(In): why different this year
[20:25:38] Chrmn o the Bds: I like cranks for search and spinners for destroy.
20:26:15] Walleye Hunter: good anology
[20:26:33] Chrmn o the Bds: New waters need at least one day on shore talking. then
go fishing with that knowledge and try to cover a lot of water the first day
[20:27:27] Chrmn o the Bds: day 2 on try to isolate areas with fish and dont pound
[20:27:41] DTALE(OH): Bruce, will we be able to buy the tattle flags to modify the old
[20:28:31] Chrmn o the Bds: This year we should be at sites that are conducive to
cranks and boards, Erie Oahe and Peck. I think leech could be fished with cranks but
we need more time there.
[20:28:56] Hank: Have you ever fished out out of Barcelona Harbor in N.Y?
[20:29:18] Chrmn o the Bds: Tatle flage will be out by spring at the retailers and on the
net at our website
[20:29:38] Chrmn o the Bds: No, I talked to some guys from Henderson and it is good
[20:29:44] Todd: Where on Oahe is this years event?
[20:30:04] Chrmn o the Bds: Pierre
[20:30:18] Jo'Eye: Bruce, do you match the hatch with cranks and blade
[20:30:39] DTALE(OH): Bruce, you really attracted a crowd. Are you going to fish Lake
Erie Fairport this summer?
[20:31:26] Gofish(MN): Hi bruce,tom here from leech lake. did you try trolling on leech
[20:31:35] Chrmn o the Bds: As long as it is silver-- actually I prefer silver,gold copper
and chart. for spinner blades and except at erie you can stay pretty basic with crank
[20:32:16] cb(oh): explain except at erie with crank colors
[20:32:58] Chrmn o the Bds: Go, just a little, last year was not much of a learning year. I
only caught 3 fish in practice so can't say much about methods there
[20:33:03] rubber man: bruce,tell us how the tattle flag will help us catch fish.
[20:33:46] sk: goodd question rubber man
[20:33:55] Chrmn o the Bds: Erie seems to like loud and high contrast colors like you
would find on a hiwaiian shirt
[20:35:00] Chrmn o the Bds: The tattle flag will give you more indication of what is
happening out there. You will spend more time fihing good baits and not having fouled
lures or small fish
[20:35:47] sk: tell us how they work exactly?
[20:35:56] Reelmn(In): hope those flags are ready soon cause little is all I catch
[20:36:14] Just Look"N--MI: Did you know your black releases work good on boards
with braided line?The salmon ones
[20:36:33] Chrmn o the Bds: I have found out that a walleye will hit several times and
not hook up or move the board.
[20:37:23] Chrmn o the Bds: Yes, the hole pattern is the same but I just use the
superline loop on my regular releases when i use the superlines.
[20:37:45] DTALE(OH): Bruce, I think that the flag will be good for those fishing
[20:37:48] golden1 ( co ): superline loop?
[20:37:53] sk: Are you incorporating the tattle flag on all new boards? or is it strictly an
optional add on?
[20:38:02] Chrmn o the Bds: I have tested Stren's new Sensor and it seems like a good
medium between mono and suerlines.
[20:38:04] CAPT. SPANKY: BRUCE:ARE YOU REP'D AT CHICAGO SHOW?
[20:38:48] DTALE(OH): Bruce, will the boards be at the Cleveland show in March?
[20:38:50] Chrmn o the Bds: Strictly an add on, all you have to do is drill one hole and
[20:39:22] Chrmn o the Bds: They will be at Cleveland at the Off Shore/Riviera booth
[20:39:24] Just Look"N--MI: Uh OH Directions
[20:40:05] DTALE(OH): Are you going to be at the Cleveland show?
[20:40:28] rubber man: tattle flag is like tip up fishing,the flag is a strike indicator.
[20:40:30] Chrmn o the Bds: Some of the Pro-staff will be there but not an off shore
[20:40:39] Chrmn o the Bds: No, Larry Hartwick.
[20:40:56] sk: Would you use your boards with out the tattle tail system for walleyes
now that you have them?
[20:41:38] Chrmn o the Bds: I haven't used the regular board since the first time Mike
Victor showed me the prototypes....
[20:43:02] Chrmn o the Bds: I will be at the Palace in Auburn Hills Mi. 3-5/3-8
[20:44:24] CAPT. SPANKY: ANY PLANS FOR SOMETYPE OF LITE FOR NIGHT

line counter and I may have some Daiwa' s for sale.
[21:08:06] ebijack (mi): 3rd thru the 7th
[21:08:41] DTALE(OH): Bruce, what do you like about Penn?
[21:09:48] Chrmn o the Bds: They will read 1ft. from start to finish, have a back reel
lever and the counter reset will be hard to bump by accident.
[21:09:56] blane (wa): does penn make a left hand retrieve line counter?
[21:10:13] DTALE(OH): Penn, has 3-4 models. Which one do like the best?

[21:10:49] Reelmn(In): how about cost on the penn
[21:11:06] Chrmn o the Bds: Hi Jim I just spent a few days at Niagara
[21:11:16] DTALE(OH): You should get some rep money for this info.

[21:11:39] Jim (Canada): Hi Chrmn... you should have dropped me a line... I'm in
[21:11:50] Chrmn o the Bds: No rep money, I just like to pass on new discoveries.
[21:12:01] Chrmn o the Bds: Glad you have power.
[21:12:19] DTALE(OH): Is the size of Penn like the 27Lc or the 47LC?
[21:12:49] Chrmn o the Bds: It is a little smaller than the 27 to larger than the 47
[21:15:13] oldben: Bruce what do you think the best water in north america is for trophy

[21:18:25] kg: Sask. fish hard to beat
[21:18:58] Chrmn o the Bds: also hard to catch
[21:19:13] oldben: on a fly rod

[21:20:17] Chrmn o the Bds: Now that I fish the PWT, your life evolves around the next
tournament so I don't even get to fish my home waters much any more.
[21:20:43] Jim (Canada): What are your home waters... sorry... I came late to the chat...
[21:21:20] Chrmn o the Bds: A lot of those large fish have been kept from there and I
don't think they get replaced as fast as Erie's
[21:22:04] Chrmn o the Bds: Port Austin Mi. Between Saginaw Bay and Lake Huron,
Walleye on the left, Salmon on the right.

other bays average 18-25 ft
[21:30:18] walleyezone(mn): Should be a good bite during PWT time
[21:30:24] Chrmn o the Bds: I fished there last year but only learned sucker and north
bay and ottertail
[21:33:08] Chrmn o the Bds: There are 70 amateurs signed up for all 4 of the pwt

them as well?
21:37:41] LS1(nd): Bruce, where's a good place to stay at in prot clinton during the
[21:38:02] Chrmn o the Bds: Prefer snap weights in clear water without lots of snags
such as erie and the shoreline of Leech. Bottom bouncers in shallow water for there
speed and depth control.
[21:38:35] Chrmn o the Bds: Plastic in dirty water bait only in clear.
[21:40:13] bob (oh): camp perry has pretty cheap lodging near Port Clinton
[21:40:18] Jim (Canada): I had some good success this past year with the chartruese
odd ball and the chartruese berkely power grub... anybody else?
[21:40:23] Chrmn o the Bds: Captains Quarters and you might call 419-734-7147 and
ask them about their 6 man kitchenetts. Get someplace soon, the first week of May is
the best there is at Pt Clinton
[21:40:44] Quantum: Bruce. Do you ever downrig for walleyes if so do you have any
tricks of the trade?
[21:41:01] CAPT. SPANKY: bruce painting snap wieghts any +'s or -'s as you see it?
[21:41:40] Chrmn o the Bds: I have some serious Downrigger tricks for walleye and
they will be used this year, especially if the water gets rough.
[21:42:18] Chrmn o the Bds: Don't be afraid of keeping the cranks close to the balls on
the rigger, the fish are not as shy as you think.
[21:43:00] Quantum: i suppose that gives you better releases from the ball too hey
[21:43:03] Just Look"N--MI: Have you tryed the Manns -1 on downrigger?
[21:43:09] Chrmn o the Bds: changing colors lets a blind guy like me know which
weight is which. that is the only reason for colors on snap weights.
[21:44:28] CAPT. SPANKY: bruce,same reason i do it.i say orange moron instead of
1oz ect...,darn greenhorns you know!
[21:44:57] Chrmn o the Bds: yea, sometimes a walleye will actually pull off the release.
(trick--- add an 18" leader to the release and don't put much bend in the rod) you can
see the rod tip move as an indicator.
[21:45:37] Reelmn(In): spanky, is that moron or maron
[21:46:41] CAPT. SPANKY: thats moron as in idiot i have in boat on occcasion.
[21:46:53] Just Look"N--MI: I use the mini dipsy snubbers on the release,they stretch if
you are dragging one
[21:47:22] Quantum: what the best kinds of releases?
[21:47:42] Reelmn(In): offshore what else
[21:47:52] CAPT. SPANKY: i find a soft rubber band off the release works great as a
tattle tale for downriggers.
[21:48:00] Quantum: ha ha I don't know what I was thinking
[21:48:22] Chrmn o the Bds: Off Shore OR4 light tension for cannonballs
[21:48:31] Just Look"N--MI: You must have meant what number
[21:49:26] Chrmn o the Bds: Yep, Rubberbands work but I got one in a bilge pump on
a bad weather day so i don't allow them on the boat, funny about almost sinking.
[21:51:06] Sheila: Bruce, no wire cutting on the hands this year - OK?
[21:52:23] Chrmn o the Bds: I hope not, it takes a long time to heal a wire cut. I wish
the wind would not have been so stronge at Dubuque, we had it won on wire.
[21:52:56] Quantum: what about boat speed when rigging. does a stop and start
method work for walleyes as it does for lakers?
[21:53:34] Chrmn o the Bds: No secrets, Harry will be out buying downriggers!!! Yes.
[21:54:40] CAPT. SPANKY: Bruce do you use roller guides for wire tip or all? 7 strand
[21:54:46] HPS: I'VE GOT THE BASS PRO BOOK OPEN TO THAT PAGE
[21:55:29] Chrmn o the Bds: no, I use a product called Twilli-Tip that is 10 times more

[21:56:13] CAPT. SPANKY: bruce source for twilli tip?
[21:56:52] Chrmn o the Bds: Me
[21:57:46] bob (oh): bruce, you do fish weight forwards or weight forwards with blades?
(i think they call them flippin blades now ;-)
[21:59:32] Chrmn o the Bds: Mostly blades and snap weights, I don't like weight next to
my bait, I think it causes short strikes.
[22:01:36] Chrmn o the Bds: If I leave now maybe I can see the last of the hockey
game how about it?
Everyone thanks you for your time Bruce. !
