  1. And I always add 1 ft to wave predictions if they are calling for 1-3. You can bet on 2-4. Would like a dollar for every time I’ve seen the forecast and gotten to the lake to find a maelstrom. Oh well. Go to breakfast. Lol Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. You can adjust that off set on your sonar I’ve never bothered that 18 inches would actually help you in shallow water I meant don’t look at your sonar , if it is tracking your cannonballs , and think that , for instance it shows your cb’s at 100 ft. , That is their actual depth. It’s not. It is showing an object 100 ‘ from the ducer Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  4. And always add 1 foot to wave height forecast. If it says 1-3. It will undoubtedly be 2-4 Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. I was trying to copy the chart I can’t get it to paste. Go to Lake Michigan angler -Determining down rigger depth while trolling -they have a chart and formula. It’s an eye opener And don’t make the rookie mistake of thinking your sonar (Distance finder) is showing you the depth your bait and cannonballs are fishing. It’s showing you how far your cannonballs are from the transducer , not the actual depth
  6. There are charts available to show the actual depth achieved by measuring the angle of the rigger cable. There is also a formula you can use to figure it I feel your pain. Years ( too many ) ago I was in the same situation. 10 lb finned cannonballs. At times with speed and down currents the cable was 45°. I found that to reach 100 ft depth I had to let out 150 ft of cable. I finally bought a cannon speed n temp. That verified my findings. Many times I was having to let out almost half again the amount of cable to reach the wanted depth. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. Some plastics don’t mix well. I’ve had plastic lures melt when in contact with other plastic I’ve used kingfisher II flashers for a long time and never had that problem. I would get a heat gun and carefully heat the warped ones and try to true them up Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. I have bought weights from Harvey in the past. Good product at a good price from a good guy Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  10. The charter boys are commercial, so they can legally use 18 Seems years ago it was cardinal coast guard and they would make a ship to shore call for you at an exorbitant fee. Cell phone probably took care of that Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. I see that. It’s commercial only. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. I hope you mean 16. It’s the law to monitor 16 for distress calls. I thought 18 was a ship to shore telephone service Costs big bucks to use Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Depends on what port ur out of. Usually 68, 69 and 72 are the recreational channels. You are required by law to monitor 16 for distress calls Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
