  1. WIth Okuma 30 series reels you will need backing to fill the spool 100%. 75-100 yards of 20# test mono is good. Make sure you have SS wire. 32# is copper..https://bloodruntackle.com/stainless-trolling-wire/
  2. If you are already running 3 riggers and two coppers (one one either side of the boat off boards) then the next step is no doubt a diver for each side. And then after that a chute copper!
  3. Either way is fine. As long as your deepest is closest to the boat. If it was me I would mix it up though and run lead and copper on both sides. Makes for a better pattern and strike box.
  4. December 22 PM- Last sit of the NY season 40 Degrees W wind 20 mph partly sunny Well the season end is here and one more opportunity to get my kid a shot at filling another tag. Wind was brutal this afternoon and I elected to sit on the North side of the field for some protection. Of course most of the deer came from the south woods. After 4, the big 8 made an appearance on the other side of the field from us. I told my kid to sneak across the field until the deer was in range and hope he can get close enough to get a shot. He crawled across the field. Got within 90 yards of the buck but when he tried to get in a position to shoot the does blew and spooked the buck closer to the woods. Being the last sit , It was worth the gamble. Looking forward to late season in Ohio in less than two weeks!

  6. December 21 pm 40 degrees SE wind 5 mph Cloudy skies Lots and lots and lots of deer tonight. Handful of bucks including the big 8 that is a master of elusion. No bucks within range. One sit to go! Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Back at it with the kid again this afternoon. Deer already on their feet. Fingers crossed! Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. December 19 pm 37 degrees SE wind 5-15 mph Cloudy skies Back at it this afternoon. With the SE wind I elected to change up where we have been hunting from the ground and sat on the opposite side of the field. Deer movement has been pretty late and today wasn't any different. First deer of the day was a tiny buck that walked right by us. Second deer of the day was that stud 8 pt that we keep seeing but unfortunately he was on the other end of the field. After that does started pouring out into the field. I saw some deer in the adjacent field so I put the binocs on them and realized one was a decent buck. I sent my kid on a mission to cut across the field and sneak up on them through the hedgerow. Well surprisingly he got within range and took a shot but missed clean. Ugh. Three days to go.

  11. December 18 pm 26 degrees Swirling winds Sunny skies Really thought it was going to be a good hunt but it turned out to be a strange sit this afternoon. Deer started showing up around an hour before dusk and they were very spooky. As the wind changed the deer left the field and by dusk there wasn't a deer to be found. In 2.5 hours the wind went from NE to NW to SW. Lots of deer seen including a couple of bucks and I believe one of those bucks was the big 8 from yesterday. Four sits to go.
