  3. The label on box says w/o foot pedal so I'm assuming no. Box is unopened. I'm north of Pittsburgh PA but will be in Wilson sometime mid April and for spring derby. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Depends what do you have? Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Brand new unopened box 70lb 60" shaft 24 v power drive v2 I pilot. $850 or best offer. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. The best part of this site is all the info you get. You'll find not everyone runs the same program. What works for some doesn't work for others. My best advice to you...if you have a program your comfortable with from Lake michigan....try it on Lake ontario. You won't need wire, heavy mono, or long copper in may and it might be wise to stick with what you are familiar with. You'll have your hands full with navigating boat traffic and trying not to get run into shallow water. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I've run the big game in green..looks close to same color as Ande. The blue and yellow seem pretty bright. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. I run 30lb big game or trilene xt then leader down to 15 to 25 flouro. Also run free sliders instead of fixed cheaters. Just a snap on one end and a swivel on the spoon end. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. We ran his rigs last April for the 1st time. Boated over 50 by 11am. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Nothing in Lake ontario compares to a king....but they are fun to catch. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Some prefer roller rods but the majority of us just put a twili tip on a regular diver Rod. $10 addition. Any 30 size reel will work. I prefer saltist. John made a good point on the counter but they don't bother me. What do you have braid on? You might be able to use one of those reels. Long coppers require large reels. Check anglers Avenue or atomik to see what they sell pre spooled...for an Idea on reels and size. If you have 300 copper already you could opt to just add a drop weight for added depth.

  12. We did 6 or so between the bar and oak orchard. 4 to 12 lbs. Fiesty fighters. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Try dropping a line 10 to 15 ft deeper. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Did you lose many fish on the days you did well? Possibly bigger fish? Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. North Niagra launch is/was a shallower and less steep ramp. The south launch is steeper and never gave me trouble. Also nice cleaning station between the launches...behind bathrooms. I normally launch at Wilson but will launch at the bar if the bite is near the Canadian line. FYI the bite was pretty solid on the west end all season. Typical spread on my boat is 2 wire dipsys with flashers 2 riggers with spoons and free slider cheaters...and a copper down the shute with a mag spoon. Colors vary but greens...glows...and spooks are staples...at least for me. May the bite is normally in top 50 fow but watch for marks and adjust.
