Juls- Who are some of your sponsors Gary?

chatman- Do you plan to see your lovely wife at all?? LOL...

Gary Gray- Off Shore, Mercury, Yar Craft, Storm, and many more

Gary Gray- Now and then

Ristorapper(ND);- easier to calculate how many days you're home rather than how many days you are on the water!!

Juls- speaking of Off Shore...what can you tell us about this new Snapper Release they have coming out?

Gary Gray- that's about it

Gary Gray- It's Great

Ristorapper(ND);- board release??

Juls- why? what makes it so special?

Gary Gray- Best release yet, and works great with all the super lines

Gary Gray- Yes, board release

chatman- Is that the same snapper that Wille has/had on their boards?

Ristorapper(ND);- what super lines do you use then

Gary Gray- Yes, now Off Shore has it

Fisherman- Different pads or whole new release

Crumpler- Gary is the new release the same one as the one on the bago boards out of Brothertown?

chatman- Nice release, holds Fire Line very well

Gary Gray- It was meant to use on Off Shore boards anyway

Gary Gray- Yes

Gary Gray- Have yet to have one come off the line!

Crumpler- yes on the same clips Gary?

chatman- Even if it did, the pin would hold it...

Gary Gray- correct

Driftr- I have never tried the small boards , maybe I'll look for them in Huron

Driftr- are the new clips available yet

chatman- I use the snapper release on all my in line boards and find it almost as easy to release with one hand as Offshore's standard release

Gary Gray- Bruce, when will they be available from Off Shore

Chairman- After the first of the year

Crumpler- outstanding product I was going to modify my Offshore's with at least the front clips over the winter anyway cool

Gary Gray- we had about 100 guys and gals

chatman- wow...nice showing!

Gary Gray- could not fish it, it was for owners only, no pro-staff

Gary Gray- have I missed anyone yet?

chatman- That is a great deal for the owners

wallykid82- how long have you been on the Yar-Craft pro staff

Lance- Gary, I understand that some of those new polyflake boats are making their way to the dealers now?

Gary Gray- yes, as we speak

Fisherman- What will you have for a motor?

Crumpler- Gary is Pepsi still working with you ? I find that it is easier to work with non fishing related sponsors do you see more non fishing sponsors as a major future market for us ?

Gary Gray- 225 Merc

Larry (WI)- Enter Text Here-Gary, do you think Lake W-Bago should be managed differently to create a more quality fishery?

tracy- Gary any opinions on Erie limits?

Larry (WI)- A lot of people think the same way, how can we get that done?

Gary Gray- I was just out there a week ago, looked low

Bigfoot- and I left my shovel there too

Gary Gray- should have kept it for next year, Rick!

Chairman- gets any lower we won't need boats next year

Ristorapper(ND);- you didn't need it Rick!

Bigfoot- you got that right Gary

tracy- Gary, what areas did you fish at the SOO?

DanL- Gary when you vertical jig is there any thing you do to trigger a fish

T-Mac- 10hp limit...anything bigger kicks up too much dust !

Gary Gray- stay vertical as you can, and snap it

Chairman- Gary how do you find fish in shallow water?

Gary Gray- trial and error,

Ristorapper(ND);- Hate to say it but wishing for 100+inches of snow in T-mac country so the runoff in the spring will fill up the lakes again Sorry t-mac

Chairman- I guess I have been doing it right, mostly error

T-Mac- I agree risto

Gary Gray- shallow fish, are the hardest to locate, you can't mark them. so it is trial and error

Lance- lol

chatman- well that's half the battle Bruce, lol

Ristorapper(ND);- what is the shallowest you figure the locators will pick up fish??

Gary Gray- Sorry about having to leave early, but I got to go, will make it up another time

Ristorapper(ND);- and when it will be available

Chairman- Gary was supposed to do that, but it is a clamp type release

Chairman- It will hold super lines very well and can be opened with one hand.

Ristorapper(ND);- pads?

Chairman- super lines

chatman- Describe the difference between the Snapper and the standard Offshore release

Chairman- one pad and a grooved surface.

Ristorapper(ND);- you have tried them Bruce?

Rick- same pad as before

Chairman- been using them for two seasons, helped develop them

Crumpler- did this release originate on the east shore of Bago in WI ?

jerry- Are they available to all at this time?

Chairman- similar pad and easily replaced

Rick- spring or clip

Ristorapper(ND);- Price?

Chairman- Not from Off Shore, get them from Wille or big jon right now

Chairman- Retail in our paper will be about $14

idoc(mn);- very cool

idoc(mn);- for a pair or each?

Chairman- I will be able to show them at the WC outing in Huron this weekend

Chairman- Fishing tips I mean hah

Ristorapper(ND);- mine gets passed around quite a bit here!

chatman- Bruce, is Offshore going to be the only source for the Snapper release?

Chairman- In a while, we will have the articles and tips on our web site, just too busy now to do the work

Chairman- No, the other Mfg's will be able to order it at this time also

Crumpler- Bruce I have these things on my Offshore's now just the front clip wont let go but I have to se how Offshore does it so you can still use the tattle flag system on the back end.

jerry- Bruce, do you need more field testers? Be glad to try these out and report back.

Chairman- It fills a need for us without having to go into costly R&D

Chairman- I just use the snapper on the front and the red clip on the wire

Chairman- Don't have any field testers just product promoters. by the time a products leaves here it is "tested"

jerry- I see

Lance- I think it is a quality addition to the Off Shore boards

Ristorapper(ND);- your tourney schedule for 2001 Bruce?

Chairman- No decision until January, need time to get Off Shore ready. MWT for sure

Crumpler- ya works great I pull a lot of power pro line threw the stumps on boards and rip those cranks out never have to go back for a board with these clips !
