  1. Past hour
  2. Well, I didnt get to experiment with the meat rig this morning. I went out at first light from myers. Within 5 mins somehow I managed to wrap my downrigger line around the prop of my kicker. Then when deploying my wire diver, the wire got pinched in between the spool and side of the reel and got stuck. So I trolled with the main motor and 1 downrigger for a while and called it. Not my morning I guess. I didnt even want to try the meat rig. For my luck this morning it would have broke off or something. O well. Time to fix everything and hit it hard again next weekend.

  3. I don't have a Humminbird unit but I think you described the issue very clearly and it may save some other folks from headaches and it is really to your credit for taking the time to let folks know
  4. Putting this out there to save some frustration for some of us and maybe some cash as well. I blew a board in my 1 year old unit about a month ago. Sent it up to North Bay for warranty repair and afterwards when I asked why this could have happened I was explained by the tech something that`s not even in the manual, which is pretty basic to put it mildly. So the problem stems from having a side imaging transducer which due to it`s shape tends to lose contact with the water at higher speeds. When this happens the unit tries to establish bottom contact. Because factory setting for "MAX DEPTH" is AUTO and if you're like me you leave this setting alone, as the unit tries to reestablish bottom contact it will keep increasing the strength / wattage of each ping thinking that it must be in very deep water, it eventually will ping so hard that it fries a few diodes on some of it's circuit boards. Crazy that there's no limiter of some sort but that's how it is. The remedy can be one of 2 options. One is to add a second, high speed, transducer and a Y-cable connection thus this high speed transducer is always in the water and no loss of bottom contact. Two, this is what I did, is to limit the MAX DEPTH setting on the main page (press MENU twice) to say 300' which is more than enough to cover the portion of Lake O that I fish and by doing this the unit will only send out strong enough signal it would need to get through 300' FOW, never frying itself again. Hope I explained it clearly enough to understand, PM if I can answer any Q's. Cheers

  8. When the fleas are really bad and are suspended throughout the water column even 150 lb rigger wire is not immune to them. A,lot of time they seem to be "patchy" in the water column and i think that is why some folks have better luck avoiding than others in spots in the lakes. When they are reaally bad even the riggers get clogged especially with the fishhook type fleas which seem harder to remove from anything no matter what the diameter.
  9. Are you guys using 40lb? Made the switch and seemed to help where I fished.
  10. Today
  11. thats funy we spent the day in 150-180 and lost track of hits had a case of the dropseys for a while but still ended up double digits for kings and steel. early all our fish were up in the top 50 feet with the 7 color being the stud. our deep divers didnt fire till after 9 but than from there every rod was going. my arms are still tired. every lure out had fish we never even made a change. biggest of the day was 23.5
  12. Great catch guys! We had similar success but in 180-200 fow. Riggers fireing at 30- 40 feet down. Awsome morning on the big O! Sent from my XT1710-02 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. As the water temperature goes up they seem to rapidly multiply and we have had some very high ambient temps lately.

    Kind of disappointed it's rough birch have a ton of stuff to do today and if I were out there , it wouldn't get done . That is St Regis .
  17. Which summit is that? Ampersand? We love that walk. Or is that Baker Mountain? I need my coffee... We will be on Upper Saranac for a week in September, too, and we'll have our 1 1/2 year old lab with us then. He is a warrior. I can't wait to see him tackle some trails. Deer flies I can deal with. Black flies and mosquitoes are what get me. I'm glad I slept in today (until 5:30, anyway). It looks like the lake is kicking. Tommy, Jeff, and I got out yesterday and did okay, but not as well as Tommy, his daughter Mallory, and I did on Friday. The first two hours were insane. The temperatures off Sandy have come up, and there were lots of fish busting bait on the surface yesterday morning.

    Thank God we brought a screen tent All up and down the Mt . I had deer flies buzzing my head and biting me occasionally . But the view from the summit was worth it
  19. White or some variation of white is my best all around color . First light best but all day after that . Maybe because I have the most confidence with it but I put other color flasher I have down and the white outperforms them . And I use glow all day with good results. The other colors catch fish also , but white seems,the best . Just got a UV white to try .
  20. You were very nice. Long lines have no place in traffic. If they lose a few rigs they will get the picture Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  22. had 2 charter boats set up on either side of me a few days ago and both set 500 copper. they then began to squeeze me and pin me in until I eventually hooked into one of their coppers with my downrigger. I came to a complete stop and pulled up everything just to let them pass. Luckily I was able to unhook the copper and send it back to its owner. Move left air horn -move right air horn. Finally I just went to surrender. I try to give the charters plenty of room because that is their livelihood. Hope everyone has a great season!
  23. It’s a good rule. You didn’t happen to lose a pink tube did you? Found one floating and took it to the launch but no one claimed it lol
