  1. Well for me lake Ontario this time of the year for a 6 rod spread 2 riggers, 2 divers, 2 junk lines. Typically start a little higher and closer to the boat first thing in the morning and spread out & down as day goes on and adjust to marks & strikes.
  2. X2 on that! I had a rubber hand grip come off last year and in the drink. Contacted them and they sent me one out ASAP at no charge.
  3. Plenty of guys use small divers early in the season here and they can be deadly at times. We use a #2 Chinook diver for spring Browns and Kings.
  4. In regards specifically to Oswego. When did you fish & where? Lots of Browns in & around and just outside the harbor walls & near shore. As for the Kings before the east wind last Friday there was plenty around, we did best 40-70' Short cores, shallow divers & riggers all taking fish. After Friday there was some still around just not as many. Few here & there in small pockets. Die-Hard, NBK, Frost-Bite & Moonshine Crab face in that order all produced
  5. The Blood run certainly could be a little different/thicker. I spooled 3 of them up last week and have 1 more left to do. 1 layer of tape across spool before wire. The second pass wrapped with wire but following the line guide so its overlapped. So it might equal 3 layers or so.
  6. Tough to have it both ways. My feeling as I think most would agree. If you are putting in a track system put as long as you can fit. It just gives you more options for positioning & repositioning of rod holders and other equipment. I have multiple tracks on my boat for rod holders, down riggers, net holders, cup holders, tool caddy etc. I position my holders differently for early spring browns vs summer fishing for kings when running dipsys etc. Track system gives you the versatility to do this with ease. As for what brands its a matter of personal preference. I have Cisco tracks, Cisco & Traxstech rod holders. Cisco service is second to none. I had them make a few custom items and all went smooth with the process.
  7. Coldwater 303DS 1 wrap electrical tape across spool before wire & knot. Then pass tape across with wire wrapped in tape and 1000' of Bloodrun fills spool perfect.
  8. Oh that sucks. Boat looks great regardless. Someone must make one for that boat that will work without too much difficulty installing? Or may an arch so you have rocket launchers and can get those planer reels elevated
  9. Looking good, where’s the T-top?
  10. Motor bracket or remove the screw clamps and pads as mentioned above. (if that will allow enough room in the throat of the kicker bracket) Either way you are drilling & bolting to the boat. Tie bar & troll controller and you will be good to go.
  11. hey Rookie you from saratoga huh. i am on the GSL

  12. Thank you, just to confirm 100 full passes w/30pd braid as backer?
  13. This is good info, Thank you for sharing. How about for a 10 color on a 40 for backing? or is a size 50 a better option?
  14. On the east end the larger size works better for me for some reason. It is always in the spring rotation. Oddly enough that lure has also caught a couple seagulls, its just must look that good. 5 trips so far this spring it has taken multiple fish on 4 of those days.
