  1. When fishing alone the singing will tell you when you get a hit. If you pay attention the tone will change when the lure gets hit.. I do not mind the noise. good fishing to all
  2. I have 4 on my Thompson Just because you have four does not mean you need to run all four but if you have two and something happens to one, you now only have one to use. Afriend of my fathers broke the cable on my boat once and trip was still all good because i still had three to use. it was a complete rigger bight that weekend.
  3. I have launched out of both above and Olcott without issue other than one time at the river during low water. I have a 24' Thompson.
  4. May king trolling can be phenomenal. You can fish anywhere from the Niagara river to Olcott. With the smaller boat you can follow the fish. I will be the the end of May for the holiday weekend. 20 fish days are common.
  5. I usually back the trailer onto a piece of plywood, My friend swears on a sheet of rubber conveyor belt he got.
  6. I was in FairHaven last weekend. I did not launch at the park but saw people there putting there boats in so I would say it is doable. As for dockage I do not think they have any but I could be wrong. I launched next to Bay Side marina and docked there. Very nice people over there.
  7. Keep them on the boat. You need current ones to be legal but the old ones are still good for some time. I always carry extras for that just in case day I hope never comes. I would rather have extras on board and not need them than need them but not have them.
  8. I just put several drops of scent in between the head and the MC Rocket.

    stupid question: Are you sure it is not the other device that you are comparing it to that is not incorrect?
  10. that looks good. May have to save that for when I am ready. Thanks.
  11. Here is a Garelick with three steps. https://www.amazon.com/Garelick-Eez-19643-Platform-Sliding/dp/B00KCFT9DM/ref=sr_1_7?keywords=Swim+Platform+Ladder&qid=1555115479&s=gateway&sr=8-7
  12. Defiantly more steps the better. I tried to get on my platform that only has one step. At 6'2" and 265 pounds I almost could not get up on to the platform. I will have three steps before I enter the water again.
  13. do not see the otter board modification yet?
  14. catfish creek area is a good place to start. on slow days venture closer to the plant and the high rocks. some good steelhead over that way.
  15. I have Four set up on my Thompson. It give me the option to run any combination of what the fish tell me they want. Usually it is three or four unless there are some bad currents or I am fishing extra deep, then it is two. If I only had two on the boat than my options are limited. I hope to be installing a kicker this year, this may limit me to a three rigger program but I still will have four on the boat for additional options or to avoid issues due to any failures. .
  16. Also, do not over tighten the hold down bolts.. A bead of silicone underneath, tighten the bolts somewhat, let the silicone dry a day then finish tightening, just do not over do it.
  17. I have a thirty amp fuse on each rigger. I ran 10 Ga wire to a terminal block at each rigger then attached the cable the riggers came with to that terminal block. For the swivel base, through bolt to the gunnel. Just be sure to put a backer plate on the underside to dispurse the weight and not let the bolts pull through.
