[20:04:52] Pikeman(Sask): that is what berkley vanish is
[20:04:56] ebijack: pikeman, you don't use any of the braided lines?

[20:12:09] ebijack: pikeman, do you guys use berkley products instead of live bait?
[20:12:22] Pikeman(Sask): yes jim, we fish some of those
[20:12:48] Pikeman(Sask): berkley makes excellent products that can often out
perform live bait

problem

[20:14:57] Drift'r: for me either on erie
[20:15:02] Pikeman(Sask): but the eye team one will be more from a promotional
perspective

some money
[20:17:04] Pikeman(Sask): yes 1775fisherman
[20:17:11] ebijack: pikeman, do you find a larger lund would suit your fishing style
better?
[20:17:46] Pikeman(Sask): yes, certainly, on big reservoirs like diefenbaker, we hope
to be in a pro-v next season
[20:18:05] Jim Alton: hence the talking with Lund?
[20:18:14] gilman(IN): have you seen new pro v

[20:19:10] gilman(IN): yes it is
[20:19:25] Jim Alton: Does the IPS make that much difference?
[20:19:42] Pikeman(Sask): if anyone is looking to catch the biggest walleye of there
life, tobin is the place to do it
[20:20:09] ebijack: you got 16lbers there?
[20:20:14] Pikeman(Sask): it helps for running in big waves, seems to cut through them
better, and more speed
