  1. Can also loosen the drag and a surge will cause a click or two rather than a release. Wire is not forgiving and with a mag divers the rod doesn't have a ton of give left either better an occasional false trip than a freight train hit breaking every thing off Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. South Bay also carries them in general a decent trollers selection Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Tracks are wonderfully adaptable they also make 6 inch pieces if you want to leave the gunnel open Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Growing up we used anglers pal for dipseys and never had problems that was back in the days of mono line and no mag divers. Fast forward more years than I care to admit and when I first set up my little boat I was given a couple they would constantly slip when pulling a mag divers on wire I had to create a separate physical barrier to prevent them from turning all the way back and losing the rod eventually I got better dipsey holders Anglers pail are ok for a rigger rod and good for a flat line or board line (not inline) and they are great for rod storage In limited space or bait fishing. For dipseys and kings high end ratcheting are worth every penny I have cannons and Bert's like both slight edge to cannon would buy either depending on current price Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  6. Maybe they want to open the derby up to lake Erie waters and this is a prelude also there are a lot more walleye caught from Rochester west than given credit for if they really want it to work they should tweak the rules the same day weigh in hurts night fishing and no tribs mean rivers are out and walleye opens the door for folks on the st lawerance to get in. They should keep steelys in and just add the walleye to grow the participants and not just change them Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. this time of year a lot of steelhead are in the tribs to eat eggs more than spawn so they will come and go a lot especially in the smaller tribs so while a little hit and miss the near shore lake fishing for bows can be fantastic.
  8. I use a small bead and a pegg the plastic pegs used for trout beads no damage to line and adjustable Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. holy crap that is a monster we saw some big fish jump there sunday but is a beast
  10. So now that salmon is winding down I always have a couple trips at the end of the year where i like to try different things. Last year we made the decision to try our hand and musky fishing. we ended up in the pouring rain on waneta and didnt do anything. This year we decided to Continue that quest. we took the drive to Ostico to try that lake for the first time. It was an interesting late to fish. we ended up getting a late start and launched at about 7:30 we started trolling with a mix of baits to maybe pick up a walleye for dinner. was a nice morning and we saw a lot of big splashes and I saw one tiger surface right in front of us that was at least 40 inches. The thing was massive. Alas we were not able to connect on any we spent some time casting and finished the day trolling we worked all around the lake in a lot of different depths. only some smallmouth to show for it. We have maybe 1 or 2 trips left this year before the boat gets put away. probably will fish either here or Waneta. we ran a mix from c5 sized spoons up to 8 inch plugs i have lots of plugs for Salmon and trout to cycle through but only a couple large baits to work with. if i'm going to do this only a couple times a year can i get away with that or should i invest in more large lures. given how my sholders feel after all that casting i think next time i want to spend time vertical jigging especially if its windy enough for a fast drift. is a swim bait a decent jigging bait? hopeing to someday post a pic and if i get a big enough one i'll be asking about good replica makers.
  11. was out sunday but thanks to a blown tire on the trailer i didnt get out till 10 and only fished 2 hours. never went offshore didnt have time. started at 50 foot put one rod down and didnt even have the lure attached to the second and fish on. 10 lb bow. started re setting and didnt get to the third rod and the first is hit again but just a skipper sized brown this time. got set finally and poked around from 50 to 90 for a bit best screens in 60-75 water was 63 down 30 had three other shots on a 6 color down the shoot but wouldnt stay buttoned. all spoon bites bloody nose frog and a custom taped glow not a bad two hours. special shout out to featherlys for coming out and fixing my tire on the side of the road. turns out not a lot of places answer the phone on a sunday morning.
  12. HB2 that is a very insightful post. no matter how full i am if a potato chip floats in front of my face i probably am gonna eat it. unless of course i'm dodging chunks of lead flying at me from all directions.
  13. gill-t i would argue that spring Coho are better but both are good. were it not for some food allergies in my household i would eat salmon all summer long
  14. Slice and tow on a boga also works great and can be done while resetting can also slice along abdoman and pull out the guts nice clean fish to work with at the fillet table Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
