  1. I am looking to connect a Lowrance Global Map 3500 to my Lowrance x19c via the NMEA network... both units have NMEA leads coming from their power lines I am also considering adding my VHF radio to the network... where would I begin ?
  2. The St Catharines Game & Fish Association is into their 5th year already for their Pen Imprinting Project! The Fry arrived for their 4 Pens in Port Dalhousie this week. A big thank you to all the volunteers who generously give their time & efforts to this project. If you would like to get involved please come by the clubhouse for more information. Our 4th pen which we acquired this spring was made possible through the co-operation of the Strait Line Anglers Club, All Tool Manufacturing and Suncor Energy. click here for some photos: http://scgameandfish.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=pen&action=display&thread=831
  3. I know it's purely wishful thinking on my behalf but i sure wish that Atlantic $$$ would be spent on another effort at getting some Skamania & Seeforellen Browns into Lake O!
  4. Chad, for Kings I get excited when i see the 1st dandelions
  5. just ordered some of those Coastal LED strip lights! thanks for the suggestion Richard!
  6. reposting this from the Spoonpullers site ******************************************************************************************************************************* here it is folks, the St Catharines Game & Fish Association is proud to present its 38th annual Spring Salmon Derby! Some brief hilights: We have started this years derby a week earlier and are going a week later then last year. Everyone who buys a ticket, is entered in a draw for a Scotty HP 2116 Downrigger. Boat tickets available! And yes the "captain" may use it as a "single" ticket if fishing aboard another boat, but of course everyone on that boat must have their own ticket as well. Tickets will be available for sale soon at our regular outlets! We have some returning and new sponsors on board. Those prize packages from 4th-7th places are LOADED with various gift certificates & tackle items. Please support & thank all our generous sponsors for their support. Finally we are "thrilled" have to Captain Vince Pierleoni of Thrillseeker Sportfishing as our guest speaker at our next meeting on Monday March 25 @ 730pm. this meeting will be held at the Port Dalhousie Legion (west side of the harbour) Vince will be getting us primed for the upcoming season by discussing some of the latest trends & techniques he has discovered recently as well as a short Q&A session. We will be selling derby tickets, launch ramp passes & club memberships then as well. We will also be bringing back a summer "Members Derby" and details for that will be released when they are finalized.
  7. I have herd that the Coldwater reels are essentially the same reel (gears/drag/inner compenents) as the Convectors, the only difference is the pretty facelift Can anyone confirm? I am by the way a satisified owner of a full fleet of various sized Convectors
  8. "Free Time" is my boat name & is where I try to spend the little free time I get.
  9. Was among the bunch of Canadians who came over. Loaded up with some goodies & caught up with various folks. Big thanks to the LOTSA crew! Now depending what Mother Natures says, we could be just mere weeks away....
  10. not sure if its an option for your boat but maybe consider a Minn Kota I-Pilot? Depending on the model it can range $1000,1500
  11. Shimano Tiagra Wide 30 Saltwater reel http://www.fishermansoutfitter.com/p-1217-Shimano-Tiagra-30WLRSA.aspx
  12. great unit i have a 502c and love it... same as what your after but with GPS [ Post made via Android ]
  13. thanks Tom the "anchor lock" worked great while perch fishing on Lake Erie this weekend!
  14. thanks everyone, much appreciated! now will the track record function work & repeat itself while drifting stern first downstream with bow into the current? I wasnt sure if the GPS would be able to recognize this or not?
  15. I just upgraded & installed one on my bow. Really looking forward to using all its features for various applications. I am wondering if anyone here has used one yet for controlled drifting in rivers? I plan to use it on the Niagara. Was wondering what functions would work best for dialing in a "hands free" controlled drift best. Ill definetly report back on here as I progress and learn this new unit.
  16. Cormorrants and the lack of an open season on them!
  17. Need to clear these out I am located near Niagara Falls, Canada and do cross over to Western NY often http://stcatharines.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and ... Z419922361
  18. Its time to celebrate the efforts of the St Catharines Game & Fish Association's Pen Stocking projects and the return of mature Chinooks from the inaugural 2009 class. Following a similar format of our past spring "Feed The Fry" tournaments we invite everyone out to participate. http://straitlineanglers.com/Feed_The_F ... nament.htm
  19. A heads up, the SCG&FA annual Fall Salmon Derby will begin in a couple weeks! Should be a good run with the returning class of 2009 kings (our inaugural Net Pen stocking project). Also a good idea for those fishing the final KOTL to grab tickets for their crews or those who will be out chucking spoons soon.
  20. Ive found the Flea Stripper to be very helpful when they get unbearable out there have a looksy http://www.fleastripper.com/
