  1. Interested, where are you located? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Yes, it was a great day on the south end today. But has anyone ever heard of a grand slam of bait? We caught a brown this morning that had a "sun fish", gobies, saw bellies and smelt in it's stomach. Yes I said "smelt". This is the second fish this spring that has smelt in it stomach. Has anybody else heard of any smelt on Cayuga. My understanding was this baitfish was pretty much gone. Could it be making a comeback? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. Thank you for all the input. I guess I am going to try the Madd Docks for now. Such a great price point and seem to be pretty good. Only time will tell. Thanks again everyone. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. I also am considering buying a fishhawk this year. Last year I switched my riggers from wire to the downrigger braid made by Scotty. Did not see a big change in the number of fish caught so I'm going to stay with it this year. Any suggestions or things I should be looking out for in regards to running a fishhawk using braid?

  5. Vertical Rod Tree Help - Thank you Going to purchase some new vertical rod tree this year. Going to mount them in some burt’s tracks and planning on removing them when docking. I have reviewed a lot of different companies and wanted some opinions on pro’s and con’s about a particular unit. Looking for entry level tree’s. Fishing out of a 16 foot smoker craft, tiller and running in-line boards. Have reviewed Greatlakes Planners, Traxes, Burt’s, Cannon, High Sea’s and Mad Locks. If I could afford it I would get the Geartlakes Planners but I am also getting a Fishhawk this year as I am tired of fishing blind in the dead of summer. Leaning towards High Sea’s or Mad Locks pro’s and con’s please and is there another company that I have not mentioned? Fishbowl836
  6. Also live near Lansing NY any chance in could look at the boards? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. How tall is the mast? And what is the bolt pattern for the mast mount? Can the mast be reconfigured for a seat mount. I have a 16' smokercraft with open bow that I have been thinking about mounting mast in the front seat area. Currently using in line boards. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. This past Monday we ran #1 Dipsey's with flasher/fly combos and we also played with Michigan stinger spoons with 8 foot florocarbon leads off the Dipsey's. The spoons worked very well. Ran Dipsey's on #2 setting 175 to 275 and caught quite a few rainbows and LL salmon. Hope this helps. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. Is this still available? Would be interested. Just bent mine yesterday because it did not come up all the way for some reason when running to port. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  11. Thank you for all the input. I do understand what you're saying. This past weekend I got caught on Cayuga Lake with some strong Northwinds that quickly changed into some very large waves. Made it back to the marina OK but it was not a very comfortable ride. I guess it's like anything I'm just going to have to put in my time on the big lake. Thanks again.

  12. Small boat owner and was wondering how far out do you have to go. Have Dipsy's and downrigger's for the Finger Lakes fishing and wanted to give the big lake a try on a south wind. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  15. Is that a pro mag? What is the year of the boat? What is the year of the motor and how many hours on the motor?
