  1. WT; I have 18' of Traxstech tracks on my boat, & I like them the best. Good luck John
  2. 64; This is very common, & it has been happening for the last 30 years I have been Spring King fishing. Is this your first Spring experience? Rd, What caused you to loose half of your salmon? John
  3. X2, that side of the isle is a 5 alarm dumpster fire for sure!
  4. Jj; I put the probe on my second deepest rigger, to keep track of the thermocline, I don't believe it is necessary to run a dedicated rigger just for the probe. Combine your probe reading (temp & speed) with the marks on the graph. Sometimes the fish are way out of temperature, so you will be fishing above the thermocline. The Hawk gives you a place to set the lines when there are no marks on the graph. Tight lines John
  5. B O E; If I could only pack two things it would be NK’s and Pro Trolls with Atomic Live Flys!. Good Luck; John
  6. A C; Agree w/Leg on the placement of the weight (basically one rod length from the lure) , however I use rubber core sinkers because they don't nick/pinch the line. good luck! John
  7. YT; Very nice looking fish w/ happy fishermen. Waiting for you to post the first KING landed of this new season, good luck! John
  8. HU7; These guys got a couple dozen hot spoons for me during Spring derby fishing several years ago (two day turnaround). They really helped us out. I still use them when fishing the West end of the lake! Good luck! John
  9. Sid Fishawk ='s good American people! Glad you found out this info & shared it with us, please give us an update on the new lighter wheel when you can test it. Merry Xmas! & good luck John
  10. dstephe I have always run four riggers on my 20' Lund Newport, & my current boat 22' Hewscraft Searunner for thirty years with no trouble (both with 8' beams). I run out and down riggers with the rigger weight fin bent so it pulls the side riggers out, & away from the boat. I often run four riggers as deep as 160' with no issues. Most days, all riggers take fish. tight lines; John
  11. Hey mullenj; What is the max size engine you can have on this boat (look @ the metal plate where this is displayed usually on the transom area). John
  12. Sore subject with me! I live on the South shore of Oneida Lake, & the black fish eating devils were in my bay in numbers of over 250 birds for about ten weeks this fall. They would swim across the entire bay eating anything they could catch & swallow &%$#@*&^!!! Called region 7 DEC & talked to a female that said that they had a boat on the lake shooting the flying rats three times a week! Saw them a few times, boy they could only hit sitting birds, as I watched them miss a lot of the flying rats! I asked if a landowner could get a nusence (sp) permit & was told no, & that they, the DEC have to apply to the Feds yearly to do it themselves, To which I said now that there were less regulations @ the Fed, how about helping us out getting these permits, Didn't get a warm feeling from this person that they would do anything. John
  13. Les: Good post! Notice that you had no auto correct problem in regards to grammar & word meaning! Also, there is no need to demean a non PROI Member ever! best wishes John
  14. I am sitting here waiting for the Chevy ads to load, very slow!
  15. Steel; where do I look to see the thermocline, & currents? John
