  1. Again opportunistic middle of the channel is still near the edges if pike are hungry they will eat anything so goby colors work just fine as those are also crayfish colors and smallmouth colors and rockbass colors. If pike are real active Brite colors will draw fish in from father away. I never said they don't eat goby's only that I would guess it would be a smaller part if thier diet than it is for smallmouth. Fish behavior often follows tendancys that you can use but the rules are not hard and fast the fish will try to go where there is food and try to avoid danger Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. i have no real data to back this up but i would think that since gobys prefer hard bottom and pike tend to be more weed oriented that gobys would make up less of the pike diet. that said pike are very opportunistic and will take whats available.
  3. 2 years of kings would do it probably no chance the Dec would do it but I can dream Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. i have not had that issue but with bigger fish especially you need to make sure the grippers are set in the right area there are some spots where they clamp down on hard jaw and will slide off. if you get behind that hard bone line they are good to go
  5. Once I realized how old it made me I got depressed and had to go distract myself Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. Gambler only one pond? that was like 30 year's ago used to be a ton of small bass back than I would ride my bike there. When they expanded it they partially drained it heard a rumour that it killed off the fish back than I didn't know any better so I never went back always wondered if was any good again.

  7. either clear or green in most cases. sometimes its nice to have a couple differnt colors makes it easier to un tangle
  8. I would use whichever was better for the depth I wanted to fish I like the shorter rod if I'm only fishing one diver I have 10.5 foot ugly sticks when I want to run two on a side. If I want the divers higher I'll use a #4 Chinook if I want them deeper I'll use a number 5 Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. for my inside (shorter rod) divers i use diawa wilderness 8'6" meadium heavy rods model WDDR862MHR not specifically called out as diver rods but i use them with #5 chinook divers and just replaced the tips with twilli tips. they are some of my favorte rods to hit a king on. very budget friendly way to start out and figure out your exact preferences before dropping tons of money on gear.
  10. I have surge breaks on mine no electric bypass I have to use the lock out tab to reverse anywhere other than a steep launch the break away cable doesn't have to break it just has to pull out if you look there is a random crimp on the cable that crimp should be within the toung it's not which means you pulled the break the fact that it's not locked up on a new trailer is actually very scary I would have a dealer look at it that could be borderline faulty equipment Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. I just sold mine this spring was in need of a restoration the boat served me well but some physical limitations make that type of work un realistic for me you will like that commander they are very nice boats. I got dozens of response s on the seanymph so yours should sell quick Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Would love to see a kiosk put in so it's possible to get a launch pass any time and not have to go out of the way Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Weighted steel is used as an alternative to copper it is more user friendly in some ways especially if you just starting out on junk lines 7 strAnd and 19 strand are more of a braid alternative usually used on dipsey rods Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Guides will be fine use a twilli tip. If you use 19 strand you don't even need the twilli but it's still a good idea. If the rod has a heavy enough power it will be fine I use a diawa wilderness medium heavy for my inside (shorter) divers I use the 8.5 foot rods they work surprisingly well Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Not defending a bad mechanic but engine technology has come a long way. A 15 year vetern learned on engines from the late 90s and beyond so older stuff is not what there used to there is good money in working for dealers which is lots of work on newer engines and certifications on specific brands there is none of that around for Johnson now marine mechanics are in demand and there are not a lot so they can be very picky and charge a ton for labor it is upsetting but as long as they are up front I can respect that. Taking the work than not doing the repair is BS though and charging for an unfixed issue well just typing that sets off anger issues Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
