  1. If in shallower take a hot and tot remove the back hook and tie on a 2 foot piece of line with a jig and twister tail troll this slowly and it can be deadly for crappie and perch will target bigger fish and cover more water and the occasional bonus large fish on the plug. The plug acts as both a diver and an attractor Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Get a separate battery for electric motor make both battery's duel type (starting/deep cycle). They than serve as a back up for each other good piece of mind Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. There is also a launch on bear Creek have to get a pass from the community center on Knickerbocker which is open if your going late morning take 104 to Knickerbocker center is in the park on the left. When you get to end of Rd turn right launch is right there I bay is also a nice option early season but the bridge will be in till April so if your boat is high profile you might not get under in all honesty though Hugh's is one of the nicer launches around very fisherman oriented Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. I have a 15 foot piece of 50 lb mono tied in for this exact purpose works well no failers in that section so far I use an Albright knot replace mono every spring (it's cheap) and if needed throughout the season if that section get twisted with another line or something. Mono that thick will hold up in a knot to wire very well the weak point is usually further down the system in the leader from dipsey to lure Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Those bonnet heads are tasty steak em up and put them right on the grill with some butter Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Just because it's not natural doesn't mean it doesn't work more than a few days pink clown was the star what is that matching? Sometimes you want to be different than what's out there because that triggers the aggressive fish Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Those commanders are awesome boats they also have the authority model very similar with a couple of tweaks. They are both on my "lottery winnings" list Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Battery might put out voltage and still be bad how did you test it? The fact it works when plugged in means the vex is likely fine and the power source is your issue new battery is much cheaper lots of options out there. Hate to see a fellow ice guy get the short end. That said If you're set on a new vex I would be happy to take the old one and try to make it work my current version is almost as old as i am and has been through more abuse than I care to admit Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. i bay is a tough bet this time of year it could be open from launch to lake but the ice sheet or part of it can and often does move and could block your way back bear creek is usually open but the docks will be out and if there is any surge that one can be lets call it interesting. genny is probably a good bet but if we get some real cold stretches ice chunks are a possiblility there as well though at that point shore ice on the lake may make it moot never launched out of the coast guard station but would think the risk of getting blocked out happens there as well. deffinatly best to use a launch with no major ice formation behind or upstream. .
  10. 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
  11. South Bay also carries them in general a decent trollers selection Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. 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
  13. 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
