  1. Cannon one handed down is the biggest difference I have the single access ones I run one cannon and one Bert's on each side and am happy with both though I do recommend taking the cap off adding glue of your preference and replacing if they were the same price cannons if not than budget dictates. Special note both ratchet up just by pulling no need to work the mechanism very useful with a king ripping I only say this because I did not know that untill I saw it happen in a you tube video Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. use 19 strand wire. you can get away with a regular tip. i personally prefer the twilli. there are no exceptions or caviets or speical instructions needed. no worry about brand or special quality, no rod positioning issues no places to catch or get jammed. with all the different things to worry about why add more, user friendliness is a very underratted characteristic
  3. Very satisfying to catch fish on stuff you made be it rod or lure or both Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. that is a good update makes me wonder it was a few years back that stocking was reduced and the creel limit was increased all due to increased natural reproduction. i think that applied across several lakes. I wonder how much of a contributing factor this was to senecas current status. i remember talking to a "dec rep" (his words not mine) at the weigh in station during the derby that year and was told they had determined that 60% of the lake trout population was natural. maybe that data was off. Maybe for seneca the bag limit needs a decrese as well? that lake even during good times had the ability to humble me in a hurry some days. I havent fished it at all in a couple years and in many ways miss it. its the lake that got me back into trout and salmon trolling. Had a bad derby experience that put me off for a couple years (not entirely fishing releated) starting to get nostolgic and thinking about fishing it again next year.
  5. thats how i got started to. did a bunch of repairs and it just grew from there. i went past cheap very early on but with this sport thats almost a given.
  6. If you can swing it the cannon single axis are nice one hand operation to move it down Bert's ratcheting are good as well both will stand up with just pressure so much easier to get the rod out of the holder with a fish on I have both I like the cannons slightly better but have no regrets on either Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I started building my own last year it's a hobby I like the customization at this point I am slowly trying to upgrade everything so as long as am going to spend the money i should get exactly what I want and I enjoy the process if you find you like doing it than it's definitely the way to go. Mudhole has one of the more all inclusive selections but there are other options for blanks so many so that you can get lost in searching and researching Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. dont delay on those dipsey holders those plastic ones will break
  9. that is a "time to go" moment for sure i wouldnt un pucker till i hit the dock
  10. Let's go with something radical and different that could draw tourism. stock striped bass, the lake unfortunately is not and will never again be in it's native state so maybe manage it to create an economic driver. That is far different than the current mentality of restore but it is the mentality that lead to Pacific's in the great lakes. They would likely not reproduce naturally so could be controlled and discontinued in the future. Just a thought something a little less in the box Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. I have been using the torpedo wire for few years now and I am not nice to my equipment it's been very good to me I have both 7 strand and 19 strand the 19 is more forgiving in my opinion and when the time comes to replace the wire on any of mine it will be with 19 strand Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. also note that the year of the boat does not dictate the year of the riggers. if the switch is backwards two easy options. reverse the wires in the plug on the boat end or take the housing off and switch the connecters on the back of the switch. old school riggers simple set up slow as hell but man they last. i have old mag 10s from the 80s i wish i could use bigger weights but hey they still work and more to teh point they are not manuals. to the original poster this thread is 13 years old hope everything worked out. I do love an old read on old equipment that is still relevent today though. just shows how tough some of those mag 10s really are.
  13. We had a plan to go that far Sunday but the chop was less than comfortable we started at 250 and trolled out to 570 good marks till 450 nothing after with no action at that point the temp started to do deeper so we turned back to fish the marks we say ended up 2 for 5 with a very dark 15# king in 500 and a small Steelie in 270 slow day overall seemed like the currents were shifting a lot out there as we kept having to change angles and tweak speeds. Oh well still nice to get out Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Nice was planning to do the offshore tomorrow myself Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. they are farthur to the side than it looks on the surface. the line gets a bit of a belly to it as you run more out. that said if your only running one per side use a 2.5 or a 3 setting no reason not to get as much space as possible
