  1. Fishmaster, let me know about your 500 reel sale. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Thanks Gerry, I have good things about them from others as well. Dave
  3. marina merc service recommendation - West FL Good Day, looking for any feedback on a merc mechanic marina on keuke or canandaique. Looking for a 300 hr service on my 115hp. Seems the marina I have used in the past, is too busy to take my service request. PM is fine, if you do not want to share comments. THANKS !! Dave
  4. Braid Color? - (I know, I know...) Good Day, just had to post the question. I have been researching too long and my head is spinning. Apologies if this subject has been discussed in detail, but I have not found it in the archives. Here is what I am looking to do: Fingers only, trolling leadcore. Looking at 20lb braid backer with flouro leaders. Got it, just can not decide on braid color. Does it matter really with long leaders? Appreciate your input, Dave
  5. Prof T, hoping it is that simple. Might be different on each boat/year/motor. Will give merc a call , maybe they might be helpful. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. Bought it in 2007, but will check numbers and call Merc. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. THAT sounds like exactly what I am looking for and fits close to my 115 on a 18'6". I was wondering if you could get below the 750 range. Thanks! Encouraging Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Didn't mean for you to do my look up work, thanks. I thought you had a cheat sheet made up. Thanks again for the quick reply. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. Fishmaster, what does your line chart say for 7 strand on a TAC 500? Not sure if I want to run 7 or 19. Thanks for the feedback. Dave
  10. Great job Mike and Crew! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. Perfect info. Thanks guys, just what I needed. I fish the Fingers and have an open 500. The braided flea issue is what I am trying to avoid. I suppose if I run the dispey at 175-300 max out, with the 500 19 st. I would be OK. not very deep, but deep enough for the Fingers (maybe).
  12. 19 strand wire for dispel - Tak 500lc capacity Good Day, I am thinking of utilizing a Takoma 500lc for 19 strand wire, dispey setup. Looking forward into flea season, this may be a better setup then braid. I am having trouble finding line capacity for this reel with 19 strand. Take 500 info shows 285yds for #16 mono, if that helps. How much Torpedo 19 can I get on this reel? Thanks for your help, Dave
  13. Thanks everyone for your thoughts. Will keep researching. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Apologies Mike, this looks like a great time and one I would have enjoyed entering, or grabbing a seat with someone. Unfortunately, I will be out of town in Boston that weekend. GREAT job organizing Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. I may just follow your lead on this one, all looks good to me. I do about 10-12 reels a year, so a good fit and a good recommendation, Thanks!
