  1. You can see by the picture of the wheel that you have disc brakes. A simple way to check if the system is working is to hook the trailer up to your vehicle and leave the electric plug off. Try to back up the trailer with you vehicle.  You shouldn't be able to bake up if the brakes are working. If the wheels lock up and you can't move in reverse the brakes are working. If the trailer rolls in reverse the system isn't working properly. By the questions you are asking here you should probably have someone that knows what they are doing check it out.

  2. Try these guys.


    They are in Canada but ship direct to the US. It's a family owned business and I've been buying their bullets for years. Call them for more indepth info. Toll free number and lots of info listed in the website.


    PS: They may have already tested your rifle and have a good starting load to use.

  3. I've only hunted deer with handguns. These are what I used to take deer:


    S&W 629 Classic 6", 44 mag

    Taurus    6", .357mag

    TC Encore 14", .243


    and my all time favorite that is my primary gun even during regular gun season

    Kahnke model M82 12", 50 cal muzzelloader


    Got his deer some years ago with it. My personal best.

    ......." but mine isn't running right so I've got to put it in the shop."


    Generally the the rough running problem with those 9.9's is the carburetor. They will probably need to be taken apart and cleaned. I have a 2006, had it back to the dealer after a couple years. He said the jets are tiny and just needs to be cleaned. YouTube  has a couple videos on how to do it. Pretty easy and you won't need a parts kit either if you are careful with seals. I did it myself three times since.  After the first time you do it it will take you about a hour to take off, clean, reassemble and install.

    oh ,ok got it ,thanx that makes sense will ez steer  work with,Raymarine Evolution EV100 Power Autopilot anybody have this setup pros and cons?


    I have the EV-150 ( just a bigger pump than the ev-100) on the main and use a tie bar for the kicker. If the tie bar doesn't work for you use the ez steer. The tie bar is much easier to use if it will adapt to your setup.

    I’m not so worried about being at out at night. I actually do a lot of night fishing and have lights and proper safety/nav equipment. Just I’ve more focused on stripers and walleye. Sounds like most people don’t do it on fingers.



    I'll bet a few guys are following this thread. I would be interested in hearing how you make out trolling the fingers for trout/salmon in the dark. I often wondered if they actively feed at night. This could open more fishing opportunities for some.

    was wondering if on lake ontario ,new york side, 2 people on board ,can i run a 6 pole spread with no downrigger being used for fishing lines or lures ,and run my 4 downriggers ,1 with my fish hawk,and put flashers or hot spot attractors with no lure on my downriggers and run no poles  to DR , has anybody tried this and had success or failure or what is the law for doing this ,is it illegal , LOL, im asking for a friend


    That's a good question to ask your ECO or the DEC legal department.


    Page 73 in the Reg book has:


    Angling Angling means taking fish by hook and line. This includes bait and fly fishing, casting, trolling, and the use of landing nets to complete the catch. • Anglers must be in immediate attendance when their lines are in the water. ⊲ The use of set lines where the angler is not in immediate attendance is prohibited. • An angler may operate no more than 3 lines with or without a rod. ⊲ each line is limited to not more than 5 lures or baits or a combination of both. ⊲ in addition, each line shall not exceed 15 hook points in any combination of single, double or treble hooks. • Snatching, lifting, hooking, and use of tip-ups are not angling.


    Would the downrigger cable be considered a line under those circumstances? What's to keep you from attaching a lure to the cable or weight? 

    A quick call will set you straight.

  9. Do not attach the release to the rigger weight. By doing so when you load up the rod the tension on the line will pull the tail in that direction causing the weight to steer in that direction until it can't go out any farther and then reverse  in the other direction until it can go any farther and so on.  Any of the releases that attach to the cable will stop that action. To prove this back and forth movement to yourself lower the weight down 10' or so and load up the weight and see how it pulls the tail off to the side steering the weight so it won't track straight. Pancakes are the worst for not tracking straight when attaching releases on the tail. Also be sure the tail on the weigh is straight so it doesn't act like a rudder or keel. 
    Blacks, Dubro, Chamberlins, etc all work just fine on the cable.

    By the way Stan I have never seen one of those rods before. Someone must have stayed up all night thinking that one up:smile:



    Check out that phone number. 88F22  is the "F" for the number 3. I remember when we only had five digits for a phone number then two letters (digits) were added some time before area codes.

  11. I put this post in the "Tackle and Techniques" section a couple months ago. It was for wire dipsey setup but the same applies to lead core.



    If you are going to spool a couple reels the easiest way to get a full spool on all is to first spool one of the reels with 1000' wire then top load the backer until it fills the spool. Now attach the backer to the other reel and wind it all on paying attention to the amount of backer so you'll know how much backer to start with on the other spool(s).

    Yes I may be going that rt. I would probably be using 2 jacks if I did. I see you're a local guy. Tight lines!


    If you can jack your trailer to change tires then you should be able to change the rollers.  Good luck with it neighbor.
