  1. Oldie but goodie.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5jdHa6hCLE
  2. Using braid with longer fluorocarbon leaders will be fine. Once the water warms up and the fleas appear, the braid will load up with fleas and be unusable. Adding approx. 150 ft. of #30 lb. Big Game mono to the braid will help with fleas during summer months. I have gone a different route, spooling all my reels with #30lb. mono, then changing leaders to meet the season and conditions. #15 flouro. for browns, #20lb. for kings, no leader for flashers, dodgers, meat rigs.
  3. I replaces my vinyl flooring in 2017. Here's a link to my old post. https://www.lakeontariounited.com/fishing-hunting/topic/62636-my-old-boat/?tab=comments#comment-461005
  4. The copper just floats on the cable, the antenna wire is secured to the rigger boom with wire ties.
  5. 1/2 or 3/4 inch diameter would be fine as long as the stop bead goes through. I had a piece of 3/4 x 3 1/2" laying around so that's what I used
  6. I bend the eye of the treble hook when I snell them, just like the octopus hooks
  7. I didn't have one... I worked the flair by hand.
  8. Absolutely. Made one up a few years back. Wrap the antenna spring around the copper and shrink wrap it..
  9. When I started on the big lake in 1990, my buddy took us out on this....... great times to remember..
  10. I have been a small boat fisherman since I started on the lake in 1990. In my opinion, the best addition to your set up would be a Slide Diver. I use clear and black. You can run very long leads in skinny water if needed, run it on either side of the boat, and the diver sliding down the line when released makes netting fish on a small boat alone easy. Attach flashers to the main line, add a 4-6 ft. length of flourocarbon to the main line for plugs and spoons. Use a snap swivel to attach the leader so the diver doesn't slide down and hit the fish.
  11. X4 620 with Airmar P66 transducer
  12. There are many choices for light weight auto inflating life jackets. My 70 year old fishing buddy and I wear them all the time.
  13. Power from the SLR needed down state.... higher water flow means more power from turbines.. Indian Point, the nuclear power plant closest to New York City, could be shut as soon as April 2021 under an agreement New York state officials reached this week with Entergy, the utility company that owns the plant, according to a person with direct knowledge of the deal. Under the agreement, one of the two nuclear reactors at Indian Point will permanently cease operations by April 2020, while the other must be closed a year later. The shutdown has long been a priority for Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, who — though supportive of upstate nuclear plants — has repeatedly called for shutting Indian Point. He has said it poses too great a risk to New York City, less than 30 miles to the south.
  14. Sled Guy, 17ft. Starcraft here... my setup is the same as Norm, riggers are 3ft. forward of the transom. The photo shows my starboard rear corner, boat moving to the left. Wire diver, then 2 rods stacked on the rigger.
