    Blacks downrigger release question

    Always above, or your line will get into the paddle wheel. I actually hook my Scotty pinch pad release to the shaft of the black release that is hooked to the probe. I prefer the pinch pad style, and the Scotty ones last forever. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    We need more leverage

    Yes, but the handle is harder to turn, so... Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Best boat for salmon fishin

    Maybe. It depends. I have bought 2 new boats. A 24' Wellcraft and a 19' Alumacraft. The Alumacraft is holding its value pretty well, as it was a leftover. The Wellcraft was a different story. $25 grand will get you a 16' Tracker, or a new boat OR a new motor, but not both... Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Downrigger cable retrever cord

    The Cannons always break at the retriever end. I made a mod to mine and added a large split ring (key ring), and just added a large snap swivel to the retriever line. Kind of hard to explain so I will take a pic next time I'm at the boat. The Cannons can still be added without cutting off the termination, which is why I prefer them to the Scotty. Plus, the pulley should be easier on the coated cable. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    What size weights are you guys running

    I got mine at Screwey Louis in Fairhaven, but that was a few years ago. Mine are the A-Tom-Mik ones, which I think you can get on his website. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    What size weights are you guys running

    16 pound seems plenty heavy enough. We run riggers down to and slightly over 100 feet often. Using 16 on the probe and 13 on the others makes the blowback consistent. Been running 16s on my Cannons HS for years. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    What size weights are you guys running

    16 pound torpedoes on the probe riggers, 13 pound torpedoes on the non-probe. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    “Duffy” from Wicked Tuna

    Went to the Sox game Friday, and decided to shoot up to Gloucester on Saturday morning to see the memorial and buy some seafood. We stopped at a spot with a sign for Lobster for sale, and then noticed it was the "Home of Hard Merchandise". We went out back to see the Falcon and Hard Merchandise boats, and Dave Marciano and his son Joe showed up. We spoke with him briefly, and took a couple pix. He is a nice guy. We didn't bother him for more than a minute or 2. Maybe the show has some scripted parts. I watch it a bit. Not every episode. Better than a lot of other stuff on, that's for sure. The fact is that a likeable 28 year old kid died. That is sad. No reason to get on soap boxes or bash other members, pro member or not. Makes you think about what is really important. Enjoy every day out there... Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Chute copper

    Bigger issue could be your wire divers if you turn too tight. Never had an issue with the chute rigger. Sometimes we bring the copper in when the chute rigger fires, sometimes we move it off to the side. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Downrigger wiring

    You really should use marine grade wire, which is tinned the entire length to prevent corrosion. An electrical contractor wont have that. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
