    3 or 4 Downriggers

    Depends on the boat layout. I set up my boat for 5, but only have 3 in place. I'm a straight inboard, so I run one straight down the chute, then 1 on each side/back corner. 3 works really well for me. An outboard or I/O may need to be set up differently.

    Downrigger counters

    You need to reset your counter each time? That is a problem... Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Downrigger counters

    I think we were making the same point. The spool would need to have about a half inch more cable build-up (1" in diameter), which seems like a lot to me. If 65 spool revs = 65' of cable, then 1 rev = 12", so diameter = 4". If 65 revs = 80', then 1 rev = 15", so diameter = 5" (approximately).

    Downrigger counters

    The math doesn't quite make sense to me. You would have to change the diameter a full inch to be off that much. That would be a lot of wire. Cannon advertises 150-400 foot capacity. Are you sure the counter is engaged fully? Does it always return to 0? Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Oneida Lake cabin rental

    I've only been there twice. This year and last. I have nothing to compare it to but found them to be nice people and the cottage to be clean. That was all I was looking for. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Big Gull lake '18

    Good lake for eater walleyes. Not many musky caught. I was there last week. Did well and most fish not in the slot were over. Here is one, and it shows their beautiful color. Stayed around the corner from Kirk's at Newtons. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. There is no bait shop at Sodus Point. Maybe there was, but no longer. At least as far as I know...

    Tie bar for kicker

    That's the one I used on mine. $35 and a couple offset bends and you are in business.
  11. Any chance anyone has 2 of these? Item number 1907024. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Short trip, short report. Headed back out front to our waypoints from Saturday. Fish were still in the 200-225' depth in the top 50'. Finished 10 for 15. 9 kings and 1 laker. No pix today. Best fish was during a triple, so no chance. All fish this year released to be enjoyed again another day. Off the water at 10. It's been a great year for fishing thus far this season. Get out there!

    Thanks. I'm hoping Field and Stream carriers them. I'll let you know how I do. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Tie bar for kicker

    Similar to what I had. I needed to put an offset bend in the steering linkage, but it worked great. And easy to hook up from inside the boat. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
