  2. VK II the company is in finland http://www.vk-products.fi/category.php?id_category=8 they have cool action but I have not bought or tried one yet.
  3. where is the village pavillion? I couldnt find it online and is at screwy louie's the only way to sign up? Thinking about entering our first Lake O event.
  4. do this also if you use releases on shower curtian clips you can add a small egg sinker and the weight will help them slide
  5. On Seneca I like 10 or 12lb test for spoons I use p-line fluroclear which is not a true flurocarbon but a hybrid I do this because I used it on my tipups for pike for years and it earned my trust I have tried seagar it is also good but I don't have the time in with it Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. hughes July 30 finally got a chance to go back to the big lake. got to the launch about 5:45 and was supprised by how many trailers were there. we got launched and left with the line of boats. we went past everyone else and started our set up in 325 we trolled north running two riggers and 3 dipseys. marked some fish in 320 but no takers did not mark anything all the way to 520 so we turned west to change the line and werent pointed that way 5 mins when the dipsey back 340 fired with a skippy. that would be the last dipsey hit all day. as that dipsey was going out the 80 rigger fired but came un buttoned after a minuet. set that back down and hit a skippy on the 90 rigger. at this point we still havent marked a fish we switched the 3rd dipsey to a 7 color down the chute just because having it in the way always gets us bit. we ended the day 6 for 11 with all hits on the riggers and cheaters from 90 down and up. got two big matures out of it a decent steely and a 2 year old. to the folks on here who suggested towing a boga type grip for catch and release thank you. all the fish swam away strong after a couple minuets even the one with the blood on it. the big king stripped out 600+ feet of line on the rigger rod than shot 3 feet out the water wayyyyy behind the boat. at some point after that she managed to get hook in her belly and I had to drag her in sideways my arm still hurts
  7. pappy start in 450 and troll north we did all our fish right around 520 fow today two big ones and a couple smaller fish to keep us busy we were just east of hughes
  8. I miss my walkers used them on my dad's boat and even as a kid they were easy to set and reliable I have blacks now and I am happy with them as well but if I had new riggers I am not sure which I would get Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  12. hopefully they hire someone good to design it not like that clusterf**** of a launch at the chamber of commerace
  13. nice morning to be out we finally got back on Lake O ourselves today. fished out of bear creek from about 9 til 4 with a break in the middle to pick up a passenger at the dock. We went three for 4 today with a decent steely and teens king. Got my dad out for a trolling trip for the first time since he owned his boat in the mid ninetys. He got the stealhead. we marked fish from 120 to 180 with the best screens 140 and under all our fish came on spoons on the rigger 72 and 85 down. the one miss was a meat rig on the rigger man was it hazy and muggy out there I lost about 4 gallons of water in sweat. brother with the king
