  1. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: Total Chaos ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s):6/18 Time on Water:6hrs Weather/Temp:hazy/sunny Wind Speed/Direction: Waves: Surface Temp: 65 Location: High Rocks to the plant LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 14 Total Boated:9 Species Breakdown:Browns, Lakers Hot Lure: Gator Stingray Trolling Speed: Down Speed: 2.5mph Boat Depth: 50-300fow Lure Depth: 28-75ft ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS Started off the High Rocks in 50fow and headed west. First rod fires 32ft down with a MS Stingray gator. Nice Brown. The gator ended up going numerous times. Also took one on a Dipsey back 125ft with a glow frog ss. After getting 4 Browns we picked up and ran out to 275fow. Plenty of bait out there but the hooks are few and far between. Did manage 3 lakers out there and lost 3 fish which at least one was a King. They came from 35-75ft down. Trolled back in to 90 fow off the High Rocks and finished with 2 more Browns and lost 2 more fish. Glow frog and gator were the best. Browns came from 28-55ft down with 25-35ft leads. Total Chaos ====================
  2. I started with the old 840 FishHawk and then got the Depth Raider and now I have the new FishHawk. Hands down the new Hawk is the best unit I've ever had. In short it works flawlessly. Haven't had a problem with it yet. Great battery life as well. Readings stay consistent and it works down deep. I've had it to 180ft with no problems. As far as the Depth Raider goes it does work nice. Very consistent and great battery life as well. However for me it was not user friendly. I ran them on Big Jons and the coated cable took a beating. My Big Jons never retrieved evenly on the spool so the cable would build up in one spot on the spool. When it built up enough the cable would fall off the high spot and continue spooling. That alone caused the cable to frey. I also stack a lot on my riggers and that would frey the cable as well. Also there's a lot of drag assoiated with the coated cable so plan on using 15lb rigger balls. The hassle of the coated cable was enough to make me switch and I'm glad I did. My vote is for the Hawk.

  3. Thanks Vince, I've got a Mercury Verado 225 that cruises around 26mph. With a 125 gal tank the thing is supposed to have a 300 mile range so should be able to make it there without stops. I could trailer but thought it might be nice to run the lake once in my life. Total Chaos
  4. Got a question for the guys who run their boats to Niagara county by way of the lake. How long does it take you by water to get from Mexico or Oswego to Olcott or Wilson? I've always trailered my boat but was thinking about taking the lake this year. Total Chaos

  6. It would take a lot for me to get back in that one. I was one of the guys that got screwed. Maybe this one will be different. Total Chaos
  7. I don't know about them being new. Maybe from Pro-Troll but we've been using those colors for years on LO. I'd say at least 8yrs ago we had that tape. They do work good though. Total Chaos
