  3. I would like to add some lead core to my bag of tricks for walleyes . I have never used lead core as of yet and it seems to be a very effective way to put walleys in the cooler. Any sugestions on equipment would be greatly appreciated. we are fishing out of a 196 fishmaster and plan on chasing the walleyes from the small boat harbour to dunkirk if it makes a difference Thanks Mitch

  13. Looking for a boat that can be set up to troll lake ontario for salmon/trout and handle erie for bass and walleye Also throw in the upper and lower niagara for drifting when the lakes are to rough and the occasional trip to the finger lakes. Also needs to fish 4 without being to crowded. Does such a boat exist or is this wishfull thinking ? Thanks
  14. Hello everyone This will be the first year fishing with flashers and flies for me. If anyone could suggest a few combos and any other tips that would be most excellent. We spend most of our time fishing from the bar to wilson if it makes a difference. Thanks Mitch

  17. What size kicker to push a 3000lb 21ft boat for trolling and what is the best way for mounting to a swim platform? Thanks
  18. Hello everyone, Thank you for your responses and sharing your thoughts and opinions. You have given us a lot to think about and digest. We don't want to get in over our heads. This particular boat can be viewed at www.wheelhousemarine.com Any other thoughts and input are always appreciated. Thanks again, Fitz67/Mitch
  19. Bill, Thank you very much for the response and your helpful tips. We have only fished from aluminum boats and are not familiar with fiberglass and the associated maintenance issues. In your opinion, who offers a fiberglass boat that meets the better standards you mentioned in your response. Inboard vs. outboard, what is your opinion? Thanks for your help, I appreciate your input.
  20. My brother-in-law is considering a 1987 23ft grady White gulfstream. It comes with a 1987 250 Mariner outboard. When looking the boat over, are there any tell tale signs we should be looking for?
  21. Borax thanks for the response. I was begininng to think no one had any experience with the sport angler. Glad to hear you are so happy with the boat. I am currently considering getting one, mainly for Lake Ontario/Erie and the Niagara River. How has the Optimax been treating you?
  22. Anyone have any input on the Sport Angler 1800/2000
