  1. Pending payment. Will update if sold Or not . Thanks
  2. Selling some Roemer and Black releases. Two of the Roemers are missing the cable tension clip. $30.00 for everything in the picture PM if interested Thanks Jack
  3. I use the wire knot on my prob cable. Scrap the coating off and tie it to a heavy duty swivel ,works great.

    You probably know , but be sure to use a good sealant when you mount it so the transom won’t rot.
  5. Sounds like deep v wander. Any boat I had with a fair amount of dead rise tend to wander at slow speeds. Only seems bad in close quarters , when I’m trolling in the lake I don’t notice it as much because it will correct it self without much correction at the wheel.
  6. Yankee, thanks for the offer , but I can’t squeeze 3 more batteries on board. jt
  7. Yankee, i noticed on your pic of your Lund you have a bow mount trolling motor. Is your Helix attached to the trolling motor for auto pilot ? hoping to buy a minkota and helix for auto pilot and anchor and would be nice to hear from someone who has this setup. thanks
  8. After a few years of use I like to reverse the cable. Take it all off cut the bad section where the clip was and attach that end to the spool. Now your using cable that was probably never used for your terminal end. This is especially good if you have coated cable for your probed ,you can get a few more years out of the cable. good luck
  9. I am about to do the same thing , use a Minkota for auto pilot and anchor. I was wondering if anyone had a trolling motor with the auto stow/deploy and if it is reliable and worth the extra money? thanks
  10. Looks like you have some Cisco cradle holders in the pic. Are those for sale as well?

    Walleye and riggers

    Has anyone tried the Michigan worm burners trolling for walleyes ? They say you can pull them the same speed as your stick baits. Might be nice behind the riggers
  12. I run Scotty’s as well . I put 3’ leads on them and grab them with a small boat hook so I don’t have to muscle the balls into the boat to reset the release. For walleyes I use the smaller planner board release. With the long leads on the releases it’s easier to see the small fish move the rod. Saw the long leads on Salt Patrols web site a west coast salmon guide . Interesting to see how they do things out there.

    Walleye and riggers

    I’ve been the12# balls I used in lake O. What do you think is the right size ball for this ? are you running bait or spoons. Thanks JT
  14. Hi, I have a 18.5’ Striper that weighs about 3500 lbs. I would like to get a bow mounted trolling motor to steer and anchor the boat. I have a 8 hp kicker for trolling and would like to steer with the bow mount. (gps) Would a 24 volt have enough power to steer for 6-8 Hours of trolling? not sure I have room for 3 more batteries on the boat to get a 36 volt motor. Thanks for any info!
  15. Sold went to first person who offered full price plus paid for all the shipping

    Walleye and riggers

    We been fishing out of Buffalo the small boat harbor. Starting fishing in August so real pumped about starting early in the spring. Most of the fishing we did was in 50+ feet of water. Not sure where to start in the cooler spring water. Any thoughts?

    Walleye and riggers

    Thanks for the great info. I always trolled Lake Ontario for trout and salmon . A good friend introduced me to Lake Erie this past summer and I’m hooked big time. He loves Rod n hand fishing and I love trolling so our worlds are uniting for the love of walleye. A lot to learn and this is a great place for that. Thanks again
