  1. Going to put some more time and effort with the Weight Steel the next couple of months. A couple of years ago I had one rod setup with a 200-feet Weighted Steel and it was very productive. Sometimes it was the only things that would fire on the boat. So, I have a few questions. First question is does everyone agree that the obtainable depths using copper can be obtained using the weighted steel assuming you are using the 19 stranded wire with the Weighted Steel? Second question does anyone have a chart for the copper depths base on length? I understand this is just a baseline as boat speed and what lure (flasher/Fly or spoon) is connected will make a big difference. Looking for the following depths for these copper lengths: 50, 100, 200 and 400 feet of copper. If someone has a depth chart for Weighted Steel that would be very helpful. Thank you for your time.

  3. WTB an old-style Big Jon Electric Down-rigger - Trying to make the jump from manual down-riggers to an electric down-rigger. Looking for small low-profile rigger like a Big Jon. Going to start with one for now as am not sure about my charging systems from my motor. Don’t mind if it is the old-style low torque motor. Just the fact of having an electric unit and not getting a sore arm during the summer will be a plus. Thank you. Fishbowl836
  4. Looking for two 17" Bert's Custom Tackle Tracks. Don't mind if they have some wear and tear. Just need to be functionally sound for Dipsey fishing this summer. Thank you. Fishbowl836
  5. Getting ready to replace the backing on a lot of my trolling reels. Would like to hear the Pro's/Con's and what type/brand of Braid most people are using as a backing on trolling reels. Also, any suggestion on the best place to purchase the new braid? Thank you for your time and effort. Fishbowl836

  7. Fisherdude, Bear is working very hard to establish a second weigh-in station for future tournaments. He has spent a lot of time speaking to several people about how to do this and improve the tournaments. I don’t think you understand how difficult this can be. It involves several things like getting another certified scale in Cayuga county if you are going to have it up north on the end east side of the lake. If you have it at Long Point State Park you need to get permission and approvals from NYS Parks and don’t forget about the money for the scale, time and another person to run the weigh-in station. This is proving to be more difficult than most people understand. Bear acknowledges the situation and is trying to work something out for future tournaments but like anything it takes time and money. Thank you

  9. Would you separate out the Apex lures? If so how many do you have and what are you asking for them? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  11. Attached is the entry form for the 2018 Barney and Bear's Fall Trout and Bass Derby. You can sign up at Bear's Baits, located at Myers Park in Lansing, New York. As many of you know Bear has been working very hard to establish a second weigh-in station. He did obtain permission to use Long Point State Park, however, he is now encountering problems obtaining two certified scales. The second scale at Long Point State Park would need to be certified in Cayuga County according to NYS Weights and Measures. For this year, we will continue to use only one weight-in station at Myers Park and hope to have this issue resolved for next year's tournaments. Any questions please contact Bear at 607-387-5576.
