    Fish hawk probe .

    Temp is nice to pinpoint a break but far and away speed at the ball is the biggest factor the lures have to be running right I've had days where 2 tenths at the ball difference is critical does not take much current to change that the fingers have typically less current and more consistent direction than Ontario but still enough I would rather have a probe and only 10 spoons than hundreds of lures and no probe and that's after fishing many years without one on the first boat Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Best dipsy rod 10.5'

    I use a pair of diawa wilderness for inside dipseys heavy action they work very well and not to clunky they are shorter but I am happy with them Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Looking for kicker steering options

    I have the kicker right on my transom as well the panther is the ideal option if you don’t have budget for auto pilot I had to cut mine but that’s it. On the package it tells you to bend if needed and the main motor end clamps to the steering arm so it is highly adjustable to fit as needed it takes about a second to connect and disconnect from inside the boat without having to lean out Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Sampson State Park photo update

    even thinking about the launch at the chamber gets me angry its just so fundamentally wrong. I hope they dont do the long shallow grade launch like they have at Lodi thats problematic at times as well I like sampson so will try it when it re-opens

    High speed reels for leadcore

    For the 200 steel it felt great but I see what your saying for something longer would be a lot of stress on the wrist and forearm I don't run anything more than 300 and even that only in derbys after the Seagate for a season I'm trying to upgrade dipseys to saltist first one should show up next week Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Attention Crestliner Commander owners

    I like the style with the consoles pushed forward to open up the Bak end for trolling bench seat seem like more storage but budget will be a driving factor for me as well the authority seems similar but has the rear livewell up high seems like a potential Goodwill way to revive fish for release without killing the back in the end price will dictate but I can't find enough reviews so it's always good to here one how is it getting in the boat when it's on the trailer I find that is an often ignored trait Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Conesus launch docks

    I used to launch with no docks in the 14 footer but I'm older fatter and stiffer with a 19 footer I'm just not up for it these days nice thing with NY though there are other options just gotta pick one someday I wanna cross big muskie off the bucket list will the launch at waneta handle a 19 foot sea nymph and more importantly will salmon gear work? I have a chance to hit up a store tomarrow so I can get cutters leaders and 1 or 2 lures my brother and I are willing to take a day a year to try even if we end up with no fish we have been talking for years I just don't like to kill that type of fish due to inadequate equipment pike are fun but my personal best is under 40 inches so Just not the same Sent from my XT1080 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    oak vs sodus vs oswego?

    given that scenario it seems like the genny or I bay might be a shorter drive? and the river area should be heating up. Overall for the year the range from the oak to oz is a great set of options you can chase weather and wind directions or hot bites. there are several good launches in-between to keep in mind throughout the year as well
