  1. Is it under warranty? I had one fail a couple of months ago and they just sent me one. Sorry, mine was a mechanical counter.
  2. Tired of cranking in a 450' copper and going to try something different. I'm planning on letting out a 300' copper then attaching a "Cuda" Torpedo diver to the braid backing. Then will let it out an additional amount hoping to achieve the depth of a 450' copper. Anyone have experience with this?
  3. I have 4 Scotty riggers on my boat that are approx. 12 yes. old. A couple weeks ago, one of the counters failed. I called Scotty in Canada. They asked if they were registered, and they are. Told the guy that a counter failed. He said “Well 12 yrs. pretty good for a counter. I’ll get one out to you right away but it’ll take a couple weeks because you’re down in the "States”. Yesterday I got a package with 2 counter assemblies. Can’t beat that!
  4. We fished the same timeframe out of P’Ville with similar results. Lots of marks 80 and 100 over 120-140. Missed a couple good shots on the dipseys out 250 but no big kings landed. Too a couple 12-15# lakers, a 5# brown and a skippy king. Sun was a scorcher!
  5. Nice job, John. I fished solo yesterday morning. Had 6 hits but couldn’t hold on to them. Had a real screamer on a dipsey out 250 over 165 but lost him as I tried to slow the boat. Landed one laker. Fleas worse inside 150.
  6. Motored from P’Ville to Ginna this morning. Found fish and bait in 120-140ft, down about 100 where the temp started to break. Took an 18# king and a 20# laker on 450’ copper with meat. Took another 15# king on a dipsey with dodger/fly out 295’. Quit at noon.
  7. If you have been around this fishery as long as I have, you probably have acquired a boatload of lures. I'm thinking about spoons in particular. With many newer spoons being "UV", it might be fun to add UV tape to some of the classics to see if it helps. Has anyone tried this and did they catch fish?
  8. There is no public launch in P’Ville. Closest would be Hughes Marina but I haven’t heard if they are operating yet.
  9. I'm well aware of the various dipsey wires, my question is: what is the composition of weighted steel that makes it different.
  10. How does weighted steel differ from regular 7 strand dipsey wire or Torpedo 19 strand steel? What makes it up?
  11. Nice job, John! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
