    Legacy- 2018 Deer Season

    My browning strike forces hung out since October 2017. I pulled them 1st week of August. Kinda cool to catch the growth stages of a buck was surprised to find full cards and still 40% battery. Most deer that passed this cam were running...wondered why til the coyote pics. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    I have the 620 and don't get arc's like that. I'd ask your friend what his settings are. Maybe post to share with us.

    How do you get fleas off

    Have one guy hold line tight. Run the shaft of a screwdriver over the fleas a few times. They fell right off for us. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. We run the shaft of a screwdriver over the fleas while someone else holds the line tight. They pretty much fall right off. We were in the same water as John Sunday and had similar success. Flashers took our biggest fish. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    How do you get fleas off

    Rubbing the wire with a screwdriver shaft worked last year. Haven't been up since this strain of fleas came around this year

    White board on boat helps to keep track

    you might want to include water clarity and sky conditions. It may help to identify correct lure selections for conditions in the future.
  9. A simple survey of past players might help the directors. I'd guess they only get feedback from complaints. I'd like to see the AM side: 5 or 6 fish with culling no observer a start time - maybe 15 - 30 minutes prior to pro's - just to keep everyone somewhat honest if bad weather pops up - or a call in to tournament control with another boat as witness. weigh in same as above 15-30 minutes prior to pro's Saturday - Sunday event - no vacation time needed money back OPTIONAL if you choose not to fish due to bad weather, but, you mush check in prior to start time to cancel. captains license - no - personally don't care, but, you will lose more players than you might gain - communication - no - but difficult to police with no observer Just my opinion.

    How Much 50Lb Backing

    The 45 series will only hold 300 copper and around 150 yards of backing. You'd need to bump up a size or 2 for longer coppers. 30 series is what most run for 1000 ft of wire. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Any white glow combo with a hammer fly in low light. Chrome with mirage type fly for sun. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. I think the point was...my depth raider might read 2.2....your fishhawk might need to read 2.7 to achieve the same speed. If you run at 2.2 because that's what you heard me say...you'd be running .5mph slower than I actually am. Lots of good info here...but don't get in the "rut" of sticking to temp. Keep a good eye on your graph and be sure to fish the marks. Take note of the temps the marks are in...and in what conditions.
  13. A well deserved thank you to penny.....she was put in a touchy situation and made a decision...as players..we have to respect that decision. What transpired at the pavilion after we all made a group decision was sad for the sport...and though I was no part of the mahem....i humbly apologize to penny for All of us. Keep on mind guys....everyones safety is her responsibility. A special thanks to the blue eyes lady crew for towing me back to the dock. Thankfully...my boat died before we cleared the pierheads...had we been in the lake when my motor died....well...my guess is we would've made the news....something everyone should remember when questioning a safety related call to end a tournament. Just because you feel safe in your craft....things happen. Lucky for me it happened in the harbor! Thanks again penny....keep up the good work.

  14. Great thread Rod. I encourage anyone taking the time to read it to enter an event. We started fishing the great lakes around 2010 and started fishing the LOC, then the Niagara Pro AM, and the LOTSA event. That's about all my vacation time allows for, but, would fish them all if I had the time off. Not only is it fun, but, you get the opportunity to mingle with other fishermen....and make new friends. For what it's worth, I run a 22ft aluminum and usually fish with 1 other person - 5 rods. The only time I've felt uncomfortable on the lake, the tournament control called it due to small craft advisory. The best part of any event, you can see how you would've faired if you ponied up the big money and played with the PRO's. You might be surprised in what you find.
