  1. This should be something to learn from without a doubt, and hopefully the family finds the strength to move on. But I think its unfair to be critical of the man who lost his life to just assume he died because of not getting on a flotation device. He could very well have suffered some sort of sudden medical emergency due to the situation which prevented him from helping himself. But the one thing that is consistent in these tragedies is that thing go wrong very fast, so being prepared is critical. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  3. Lund check your pm Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. My Sea Ray has semi prop pockets. Im pretty sure they did from 97 til 2000 for the Express Cruiser models. It drafts 3ft Not bad for a 16k lb boat.
  5. NJ and PA have the largest black bears in North America. The current record in NJ is 829 lbs My bro in law is sitting on the pending state record bow kill from 2016 at 679 dressed. Est. live weight of 800. I live in northern NJ backed up to watershed and we are loaded with bears. But that north woods bear at that size is a real trophy. Congrats Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Good info Bearcat.... regarding Sea Rays, Trojans and Tiaras. Its pretty clear the designer's never in their wildest dreams thought those desirable models we are familiar with on Lake Ontario would have become the fishing platforms they became. Imo it was purely an accident that the wide body cockpits became popular with big lake trollers. PY, Baha, designers had trollers in mind, so it seems.

  7. This is purely a personal preference opinion as previously mentioned. But if your talking great lakes trolling, the one thing the big lakes have over all other lakes is BIG water. So imo the need for stability is paramount. If you cant control the boat, you cant control speed, or direction thus your at a disadvantage in catching fish. As mentioned previously, length by width is the primary concern when choosing a platform. If your in tbe market for a 26 ft boat, look for the widest beam in that class. Tiaras, Trojans S. for the big lakes. Im a Sea Ray guy. My past boats were 25x10 28x11.6 and now 33x13.6. But in the end, its all preference and affordability.

  8. Browns and lakers don't occupy the same water. If your looking strictly for browns look where 55 to 60 degrees intersects the bottom. If you can add structure to that all the better. Spoon size could depend on the day so try all sizes until they tell you what they want. I would go with lighter spoons like stingers or evil eyes and troll them slow, 1.8 to 2.2. DR/Moore.

  10. Dont use em. 50lb mono. Way better hook up rate. There is not a fish that swims in the lake that will break it, and if it fails its operator error. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  14. The calibration feature becomes more useful when you want to calibrate your FH to match a different brand speed n temp probe. I calibrated my FH down .4 to match my Depth Raider. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
