  2. Folding deck chairs

    Spoon; Probably will have to buy the next level up. john
  3. Folding deck chairs

    Spoon; I have had one of those chairs for four (4) years, & it still looks like new & functions like new. When I bought it for approx $200, they had one with a stainless steel frame for about $100 more if my memory serves me well. How much were your chairs? John
  4. Grill set ups

    Stone; I have the setup shown & have been enjoying it for the last four years, it works great. You can let the bottle hang, or use a 5, 10 or 20 lb propane tank with a longer hose. Love mine, & it is great to troll past another boat with marinated backstraps smelling great! good luck! John
  5. Best electric down rigger?

    Mike; Do you have to bring in the last two feet after the rigger stops 2' below the surface to hook up your line? John
  6. Braid holding in off-shore OR11 clips

    Hawk; Yes, the board stays on the line & must be removed by hand to finish landing the fish, & yes I have had the board dive on occasion. This can be almost eliminated by keeping your rod tip near the water surface. Good Luck! John

  10. Braid holding in off-shore OR11 clips

    Hawk; Just go around the front pinch pad twice, this will keep the braid on there, also as said above spin the board four or five times on the back pin as well. You need to spin the line on the back pin first, then go around the pinch pad twice. good luck! John
  11. Best electric down rigger?

    kilr: I have owned Bigjon Brutes, & Cannons, I have been running four Traxtech riggers for the last few years, & without a doubt, these are the best riggers I have used. They have a soft start & stop, so there are no weights being catapulted when the rigger stops. I use 16lb torpedo weights, & they are good to approximately 120' down, when I have to go deeper, I use 20lb weights with no problem. Good Luck! John
  12. Todd: I live on Oneida Lake near Shakelton Point (south shore), & the water can get up a little, but it would not be a problem like Ontario. The lake was drawn down a couple of feet through December & seems to be well controlled all year long. Good Luck; John
  13. New Hewescraft OP220 ET/RT

    ADK; Good choice on the boat, hope you get it!. I have been enjoying my Sea Runner 220 since April 2011, bullet proof hull. Two suggestions: look at Traxstech riggers, once you use them you will love them, I have Garmin GHP-10 autopilot that works on either motor (Honda 8 HPHT, & BF225 it works great & is enhanced with my Garmin Chartplotter.. Good Luck John

  15. Questions to ask your fish replica artist

    FM; I agree that Steelhead can look different, but Atlantics, Coho's, & Kings are very similar from either coast from my viewpoint. Have a great day. John
