  1. doing a cruise from Seward down to Vancouver end of July hitting Juneau, Skagway,Ketchikan anyone have first hand recommendations for a guide for some stream fishing for salmon in these areas? Thanks in advance
  2. I have a gp 31 optima battery that I'm mounting under my center console, what does everyone use to secure these weird shaped battery need it to be very stable and not move around. Thanks in advance
  3. rochester and sandy are close move to other ports marina won't open if they don't have people using it to sustain it
  4. jig them up all you want and no trolling
  5. Troy Creasy High Adventure is in Pine Island Area and a lake ontario captain
  6. Used in good working condition with power cord and base and lowrance hard plastic screen cover. I have original box and all manuals. Does not come with transducer. Replacement 83/200 transducer is roughly $50 I had to replace it a few years ago. Lake insight mapping covers continental us inland waters. I used it to jig lake trout and it worked great with real good definition and picture. $225
  7. jig them been putting up big numbers on jigs good healthy keeper sized fish
  8. can the power cord and transducer from an older hds elite 5 be used with the new gen 3 chirp units?
  9. sagandaga sucks unless you want to catch a bucket of 15 inch tiny walleye.
  10. i called lowrance and they suggested also running it in deep water mode in settings when fishing in over 60 ft of water. I do this now and can see my 1 ounce jig fall to bottom and pick up lakers on the bottom. I also turn my sensitivity up to 95-97% and turn fish id off which ramps up the sensitivity as well.
  11. i have the same boat love it is the t-top the folding one? been considering a t-top for mine
  12. I have been looking at the 28-32 foot carvers with flybridge, aft cabin as a sleep on weekend get away boat. Plenty on craigslist from buffalo to albany. Anyone have reviews or owned these good bad or ugly just wondering feedback on them
  13. good stuff guys, just looks like we are on top of a cycle for lake trout, they are strong predators, wide diet and grow big. I like seeing those 30 lb fish landed, would like to see some released but to each his own. Anyone been jigging them this year vs trolling?
  14. Seems like the lake is producing a large # of large lakers this year, what does everyone think the upswing is from? We have seen a few 30 lb fish last few years are 40's or larger in the near future?
  15. go into the fishing mode and change it to deep water mode. Any time I am in over 60 feet of water this is the best picture. Also make sure your fish alarms are off and surface noise is low. and bump up the gain to 95% plus. I get a great picture with these guidelines.
  16. later in summer when the thermocline sets up go off the pump house in 80 foot of water and look on your graph for fish suspended 20-40 down over 80 to 100. most of those marks are suspended smallies and big. drop a sawbelly down and put rod in rod holder and have a beer. When rod doubles over reel in 4-5 lb smallies. Very consistent and over looked way to catch giant smallies. I also did very well in 8-15 ft of water on east side of lake sand and gravel flats with cray fish drifting around the flats.
