  1. That's true, usually trolled down the middle (out deep anyway) with the wind to keep from losing a rig on bottom, as well as to avoid any sharp turns.
  2. Great video Pete, thanks for stirring up some great memories! My dad introduced me to rig trolling at a very young age, two rods with five spoons out each side. Rods were around six foot each with Penn reels loaded with braided dacron. Every 50' of dacron "topline" was marked, we usually had 100' of topline (rig not included) out one side and 150' out the other. Life was a bit wild at times pulling these out of the back of a 14' boat. Once swivel connecting the topline to the rig was visible, we pulled the rig in by hand without disconnecting the leaders, laying the loops of line in a box and covering with a sheet of cardboard every two spoons or so. Fun times and very effective!
  3. My fishing buddy Tucker, as a pup in the white boat and taken a couple years ago in the black one. Goes ballistic over sailboats (?), but absolutely loves the water, sometimes a little too much...
  4. ...not sure if they even made as far N as Long Point on Sunday, was returning south a short time after I saw it pass by King Ferry.
  5. Thanks Mark, interesting - just found it odd to see the water splash every few seconds behind this boat with a deep thud.
  6. Saw this vessel heading north yesterday on Cayuga, created a loud "thud" and splash (shown) behind it about every 5 - 10 seconds. (Soundings?) Sorry for crappy iphone pic, just curious, thanks.
  7. Hey Joe, hello and welcome back! I just switched ff's this summer (again!) from an old Lowrance X85 to a Garmin 93sv plus (Gt-52 'ducer) unit for jigging and it works great. I like the 200kHz vs.the chirp setting for clarity. It's definitely overkill for what I use it for (almost entirely jigging), but the ease of use and large touch-screen is super. I haven't taken the X85 'ducer off the boat yet either, that was a wonderful unit for jigging lakers. Good luck! Mike
  8. Echomap 93sv plus, working great so far. (I still have the old x85 transducer on the boat, just in case lol)
  9. Would really enjoy that Mark! (...on an old note, finally settled on a Garmin
  10. Nice fish Mark, it's been a fun jigging season too!
  11. hit or miss on the blooms, was clear as a bell last evening (mid-lake)
  12. You will be fine with those sizes, I pour and have used 5/0 (Mustad 32746NP or similar) with 1/2 - 1oz heads without any issues for many years.
  13. I would definitely say on avg over several decades that I have caught larger lakers right on or close to the bottom, either by pulling copper or (esp.) jigging (Seth Green rigs ruled my youth!). Reminds me of catching larger stream trout by nymphing. My pb Cayuga laker though, was suspended high in the column over deep water, caught by dropping a jig to it. Have fun and be safe out there
  14. Thanks Traveling Circus for the jigging confirmation, appreciated! I've been playing with the simulator quite a bit this week and can't wait to test it out, looks great. ***Regarding the rebate - According to Garmin, you need to purchase a separate LakeVu g3 Ultra card to receive the $100 rebate. Details are on the rebate form: http://d35xfqiklvsi7s.cloudfront.net/rebates/75571.pdf (I was curious too since the unit came preloaded with maps, called Garmin to confirm this.)
