  1. you could always do a single mast on each side just aft of your rod storage. another option if you break your rods down for storage you can get the mast high enough to run the tow lines over the rods
  2. 19 strand is more foregiving especially for newer users. it is less kink prone and can be used with a normal rod tip. that said the strands are thinner and single strands can break easier so have to keep an eye on it for damage but that really is true of any and all lines not just wire.
  3. Wire is a different beast than other lines simple knots work well the torpedo divers website had some videos on wire knots one of them is a single overhand knot crazy as that is I tried it and could not break it so I have used it the last two years as I age I'm starting to have some nerve issues with my elbows and hands so a simple knot is a godsend Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Lot of personal preference involved are you fishing for meat sport or tournament do you have experienced anglers or newbies how big is your boat how long is your net. Do want the joy of a fight or do you want it in quick. Lighter makes more of a fight but harder to control.longer allows more control especially with experience but needs more space if just starting out ugly stiks are very versatile and budget friendly all the other major brands have good introductory models as well and of course the classifieds here are a good place to keep an eye on Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. If you are new to wire it's worth trying 19 strand more forgiving and user friendly. That said I may try one rod with the 80lb braid next time I respool Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Nice fish a beast worthy of the research for the right taxidermist. 13+ is no small feat Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Got a diawa mooching reel and making a custom rod to go with may or may not upgrade the electronics Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. i do this exact same thing bead and all i just use 60-75 feet of mono i use my slide divers all spring and early summer untill i want to drop the dipseys below 50 feet than i switch to straight wire. last year we found kings in may in 30 foot and the slide divers were the star. they also are great for browns in tight
  9. Why do you always spiral to the handle side? i started building last year and have done a couple full builds and also done several repairs. for the repairs i did a few with the spiral wrap to test it out and found i very much like it. it was also easier on the wrist of one of my fishing buddys who has some issues with old injuries. Its to the point where i did a full down rigger rod build spiral wrapped. i will be building dipseys at some point in the future but they are some of my newer rods and least in need of upgrade. I did my wrap going counter clockwise from handle to tip. and this is away from the handles. I did it this way because most of my research showed it going that way but never really called out a definitive direction. I'm curious because i have some more repair work to do on old rods that i want to use for lead core and am always up for tinkering a little bit to dial things in more.
  10. Lamprey can also reproduce in the Delta's of creeks. Eradication is not practically possible in lakes the size of Seneca. There are even indications that lamprey have been there from before human interference. That all said human interaction and change of the environment combined with multiple invasive species puts a lot of pressure on the system and sometimes the spieces that best thrives is not the desirable one. Let's hope for ideal weather for stream treatment this spring and a early spring to strengthen the forage base and lead to good recruitment of this year's stockies Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Man that is like a nightmare come true Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Yankee do you run braid on all your riggers been thinking of trying it for the blowback reduction Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. What's the water level like I heard it was getting low and hard to launch I'm looking to make my annual birthday bucket list attempt (big muskie or tiger) next weekend Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Mayers has limited parking which was always my issue there there are some private launches at Marina's but usually not open to use by public. There used to be a gravel launch near the south end but it's really more of a car top deal Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
