  1. We have a similar website..... Lake Champlain United at lakechamplainunited.com. You will find a lot of information about the lake and tips. If you need more information, please send me an email. I will be glad to help you out.
  2. Nice, thanks Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. I updated my boat 2 years ago with the rocket launcher w/ lights. My boat is a 24' Crestliner Sabre walkaround and I just love the add on.
  4. We fished them Labor Day weekend..... UV green and green ladderback did the best. Our setup was inside riggers with 50-80 ft back and just above the outside riggers. Good luck.
  5. We were in site 40 from 9/1 to 9/4. We hit them pretty good. Total was 30 fish for 3.5 days (25 kings, 3 cohos, 1 atlantic, and 1 brown. We helped two neighors with what worked in front of the river..... It would be great to know other LOU members at the Selkirk. Best lures were FF combo (white on white) and Jplugs worked pretty good (glow in dark). Thanks for the report. Captain Bob
  6. as of Aug 5th, bill has been deliveried to the governor
  7. You need to watch Gander Mtn in January clearance sale. I pickup 1000 ft spool of 7 stand for $7.00. The original sticker was $49.00. I bought 2 spools. It is nice to get a good deal once in a while. Captain Bob
  8. i have a 24' Crestliner walk around and found the great lake planners last year. I installed them in a couple of days. They are just great and look super. Give Tony a call.
  9. I have been running 12 pound weights on my four Big Jons 4' booms for years. I have only had one problem with boom breaking but that was with the temp probe as well... I got everything back and Big Jon fixed the boom.
  10. The bill passed the senate and has been deliveried to the Assemble then referred to the Environmental Con.. We are closer but what is the next step?
  11. Yes, I heard the trash on the radio..... For the last 3 years as well. I do not enjoy listing to the language...... It is real sad we have to spend our time off silencing to this. I fished for 4 days and did alright(11 fish with the largest about 22lbs). Was it slow at time, YES.... BUT the radio is a tool..... not to be abused.
  12. I just added rocket launchers from Great Lake Planners..... GREAT product and Looks great.
  13. I found them on the website "greatlakeplaners.com". They are around $34 per side.
  14. Hi, I just found website that designs and sells wingers. I have heard about them but would like to know pros and cons. I run 4 downriggers and there have been times I cross the cables. thanks in advance. Crestliner24
  15. I had a similar problem two years ago, it would runs fine at low RPMs then would skip or bog down at full speed. It took one good boat mechanic to find the problem. I would check the fuel pump.... there is a small tube that runs from the pump to the carb. Check the tube for any fluids (it should be clear). After I cleared the tube out... it has been running great.... If it continues to have fluid in the tube, you will need to replace the pump. Hope this helps.
  16. Thanks so much. I forgot about Fleas in Lake O... I do not have the problem on Lake Champlain YET and I hope not. I am thinking of setting up two rods with wire and two braid. As for the guides, I have read so much and plan to update my dipsy 9.5' rod to high end guides. Spring is around the corner and I am ready to go.... Thanks again ALL.....
  17. I am upgrading my dipsy reels to either braided or wire. I am concerned about the guide wear with wire. As for braid, what #lb test is recommended? I see the benefits with braided or wire. Thanks in advance for the advice.
  18. Hi, I am from Peru, New York and fish most of the time on Lake Champlain with trips to the Big pond (Lake Ontario). I have visited this website over the last two weeks and learned so much more.... Thank you ALL. I love to fish for salmon and trout. Look forward to sharing my fishing trips...
