  1. Yes you will have plenty of backing for a 7 color, especially if you use braid. I run 30’s for all my cores except a full core!! Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Controllking!!! I have run them on my last boat, 24’ Thompson with a Yamaha T8, and the last 7 years one on my Yamaha T25, pushing my 29’ Aquasport!! Great unit, and great customer service. Let me know if you have any questions, I can also get you a price on one of these units. Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    I concur with AA, this boat is one of the best taken care of Bahas you will ever find!! It will be a sad day to see her go to a new owner!!! Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  7. Man doesn’t control what flows into Lake O, it is all Mother Nature!!! Superior and Ontario are the only 2 lakes that have outflow controls, no inflow controls. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Yes you can fit 400’ copper on the seagate 60, I dropped down to 40lb braid for backing. I have up to 500’ coppers on my Seagate 60’s. Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. Brad, That is the way they are designed. I have a bunch of them, no issues, and they are a work horse!!! Great drag system also, just like the saltist. Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  12. Have a T25 Yamaha on my 29’ Aquasport with 2500 hours it. Love my Yammys!!!! Had a T8 on a 24’Thompson, never had an issue with it. New owner is still running it!!! Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. I drive by it every weekend and his lot is packed with boats. Not sure if he is working or not, just can see his lot is full. Good Luck. Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. You cant go wrong with the Daiwa Great Lakes series!! I have a few of them and have zero issues!! Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. I just ordered some from the factory, will have them by Saturday!!! Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  16. Going by the numbers, there is more coming in than going out. Even if most of the runoff is east of your port, the level is still going to come up. In comparison to last weeks numbers, we are gaining a lot more now than 7 days ago. Granted that is only until the runoff slows down. We will take every little bit we can at this point!!!

  17. I have been running chamberlains since they were released. Since that time I have not had any issues with dragging fish, including the little stockies!!! I have 2 sets, one set for browns and 1 set for salmon. You can’t go wrong with Chamberlains!!! Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  19. Negative on that statement!!! Out your shorter copper on the outside!!!! The longer deeper copper goes on the inside!!! When you hook up on the shorter higher copper, in theory the line should be above the longer deeper Rod. As long as the fish does not dive deeper, and into the longer copper. Also if you want to change the outside rod, if you run the longer copper outside, it will catch the inside, shorter, higher line. You can’t think that copper is the same as flatlines, or short cores!!!! Good Luck!! Capt Rich. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  20. First question is... how much $$ do you have to play with?? My way of thinking has always been do it right the first time... so the perfect setup would be to upgrade your steering to hydraulic, and then get an AP for hydraulic steering. But if $$ is an issue, I believe there is an AP that you can use with cable steering. I am sure you will get some I do here about that particular setup. Capt Rich.

  21. Something to think about... if you were to run your AP on your main, and tie in with an Ezsteer, now you will also have the lower unit on the main giving you more rudder to control your boat. I run a 25hp kicker on my 29’ Aquasport with my kicker tied Into the hydraulic system so I have the rudders and the kicker turning at the same time. Much better control, and you won’t have the kicker fighting against the main lower unit when trying to turn, esp in a windy situation. I had the ezsteer unit on my last boat, 24’ Thompson with an 8hp yammy. Much better control with both turning at the same time. IMHO Capt Rich. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  22. I talked to someone that is associated with the billing , they were in the process of getting the bills ready to go out last week. I am guessing we will see them in the next 2 weeks. Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
