  1. Thanks for the feedback guys, it's much appreciated. We're running on a 16 foot Legand. Right now we have the motorguide w55, and it pulls the boat around fine, but we're looking for something with a longer shaft, as if we're fighting rollers, or if one of us goes to the back of the boat, it has a tendency to pop out of the water. And maybe something with a little more power, but we don't need anything major. I kinda want to know all the negatives, so I'm glad to hear some...wouldn't want to get out on the water with it and have too high of an expectation...
  2. Hey guys I'm looking for any opinions you might have on the I-pilot PDV2, from anyone that has one, has seen one, tested one, been in a boat with one...anything like that. My fishing partner and I are considering upgrading to something like this. Although I've read some good reviews, I still have some concerns about how well it holds up in high wind or high current situations. Any thoughts or opinions would be much appreciated!!!
  3. I'm possibly looking to sell my Motorguide w55. It's in great condition. Looking to upgrade, but only if I can sell this for the right price. If anyone has a suggestion as to a what a good selling price would be, or an offer, please let me know.
  4. Hope they transfer alright... All 4 are of the same deer, originally caught in the current of the Niagara River heading out into Lake Ontario. The pictures are all taken from behind as we were corralling it back to land, you can see it made it safely, although it needed a 10 minute deer nap as soon as it hit shore.
  5. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name:KDK ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s):05/02/11 Time on Water: 15:00-20:30 Weather/Temp: Wind Speed/Direction: Waves: Surface Temp: 6-7C Location:Jordan harbour LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 2 Total Boated:2 Species Breakdown: Chinook Hot Lure: Blue/Silver reef runner Trolling Speed: 1.8-2.5mph Down Speed: Boat Depth: 30-60ft Lure Depth: 28-30ft ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== Trolled all afternoon at various depths and couldn't find anything. Finally at about 18:30, found a bait ball at about 30ft in 55ft of water. As soon as our lures went through it we got our first hit. 8lb 7 ounces. He was a real fight on 8lb test. Drifted over a few more bait balls while the fight was going on. Trolled back over and around the same spot and didn't mark anything so we decided to move into shallower water. Back and forth for about 30 mins and we got our second hit in about 40ft, nothing marked on the fish finder. 13lb 15 ounces. Continued to troll from 30-60 ft of water until about 20:30 and didn't mark anything else before we decided to head in. All in all, not a bad trip.
  6. 2 trips, 2 completely different results... 04/29 Fishing from about 4-8pm, 30-40ft of water. 5 chinook boated, 4 of them within the first 2 hours, 18, 15, 12, 10, 8 lbs. Marked plenty of fish, all were sitting at about 30 feet, hitting lures at about 25. Great trip. 04/29 Fished from about 6:30am to 1pm. Tried 25-60 feet of water and barely marked anything. 2 chinook boated, about a an 8 pounder, and a 3-4 pounder. Wind and surface temperature were about the same. The only difference is there was about 100 boats out there(2 derbys going on)
  7. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: KDK ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s):04/24/11 Time on Water: 1500 - 2000 Weather/Temp:8C Wind Speed/Direction:varied/low Waves: minimal Surface Temp: 5-6C Location:Jordan harbour LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 4 Total Boated:3 Species Breakdown: Brown, Lake, Chinook Hot Lure: Green Trolling Speed: 1.8 - 2.5mph Down Speed: Boat Depth: 30-40 feet Lure Depth: ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== We were on the water by about 3pm. Our plan was to troll shallower water for browns, but on the way in we ran into 2 boats, one with 3 Chinook, 1 with 1, so we decided to try our luck. We were running 3 lines, 2 flat lines with a mixture of reef runners and power dive minnows, and one down rigger running at about 28 feet. The chinook was caught on a blue/silver reef runner early on, 16lbs about an hour in. The laker came next on the rigger running a green flasher and lure about an hour later. Then another hour in or so came the brown on the rigger again. The missed hit was on the rigger as well.
  8. Was out on Sunday. Trip to the mouth was fine, but something must have broken up while we were out as the trip back up the river was terrible. It all seemed to be moving quickly though, and there was nothing massive....just big enough though to wreck the prop if it hit it right
  9. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name: Jeff ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s):04/10/11 Time on Water: 5-6 hours Weather/Temp: Wind Speed/Direction: Waves: minor Surface Temp: around 0 Location: Lake Ontario @ Mouth of the Niagara River LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 3 Total Boated: 0 Species Breakdown: Lakers presumably Hot Lure: Trolling Speed: Drifting Down Speed: Boat Depth: Lure Depth: Bottom ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== Started off excited about the trip. My first day off that the weather has been good enough to get on the water. Up at 5 to be on the water by 6. Drifting with body baits, up the drop off and across until we hit around the border, 2 rods in the water. Our first drift gave way to a weak hit, fish was on and off in about 10 seconds. 2nd drift, another hit about 100 feet past the drop, the fish was on until about 10 feet from the boat before it decided to let go(just outside of visual range). The rest of the morning yielded nothing. At about 11:30, the rain started and we decided to try trolling instead with a couple of reef runners. 20 minutes of that and my friend claimed he had a hit, but no fish. A thunderstorm was rolling in, and we pushed it as long as we could, but as soon as our rods started sizzling we got worried, then mine shocked me a couple of times and we decided to (quickly) pack up and head in. To make matters worse, the river was loaded with chunks of ice, so the trip back was very slow and wet. Still can't be disappointed, it was a beautiful day to be on the water. Even with the rain it wasn't to cold to ruin the drop(with a survival suit of course), and I look forward to getting out again late this week or on the weekend, weather permitting.. Throughout the morning and early afternoon there were about 10-15 other boats, most gave up quickly. We saw the odd fish being boated. just wish one of them had been by us.
  10. Hey guys Hoping someone can provide me with some info on how the fishing has been for lakers and chinook, anywhere between the Niagara river and Jordan harbour. Trying to decide whether or not it's time to book some time off work. Thanks in advance for any info.
