  1. Ted, what is wrong with dead reeling? If you can gain line enough to get them up out of the cold water without them spooking that is a good thing. If you are pumping and reeling you increase the chances of them getting their head around and getting off , especially with cohoes

    They are few and far between, sometimes you hear of someone catching a whopper on a j-plug, if you want to fish for walleye it would be better to go near Henderson .
  3. Best investment you will make, auto doesn’t get distracted by fighting a fish, keeps you going straight into the wind so you don’t have to captains troll all the time.
  4. Skywatcher, I have eagle claw ten rods that I use 7 strand wire on, had for more than ten years the guides hold up, definitely put twirly tips on.
  5. Two buddies fishing together, you remember when something different happens, talk and tease for years. Good memories make fishing fun.
  6. Would have been neat to get a picture of it swimming next to the boat.
  7. A center pin clip is meant to be used for adding a weight to a line and should not release the line until you squeeze it.. I use a rubber band to fix sliders. Doesn’t damage line when releasing.. Less drag than a clip.
  8. It will be down to the swivel immediately and the swivel will go thru the coast lock and jam into the plastic clip.
  9. If you don’t back the trailer in far enough when launching the bow can drop when coming off the rollers and the keel will hit the cross member, eventually the damaged part will peel off when coming up on the roller. It happened to me. A wood epoxy kit from Abatron fixed it for me.
  10. Went out of Oswego today with a buddy, everyone was telling me spoons where what to use, put 5 spoons and one spin doctor green dot out, nothing for three hours then the spiny on 400 copper fires, 9 lb king, pulled two spoons and put two more f/f out on dipsys, hour later a double on f/f another 9 lb. and a 16 lb. king, marked a lot of fish and bait on the fish finder, quit at 1.00pm
  11. Thanks for the report, now I know what to try tomorrow.
