  1. Can't believe there hasn't been more noise about this as it affects the GPS of HDS GEN2 or GEN2 Touch and all Elite units and some Hook units. Elite units are still in the stores.
  2. They have removed the patch which was on the website last week and now have nothing ready. Not one word on Lowrances Canadian website. All Gen 2 and Gen 2 touch units plus many others affected. HAPPY NOT TO BE ON FACEBOOK
  3. I find it odd that someone with 5 posts asking how to troll spoons is billing himself as a charter ( aluma charters) I guess if you got a boat you can be a guide.
  4. One thing I do know is a friend broke off a laker one day and the following day recaught the laker with his rapala still attached 17 miles as the crow flies from where it broke off
  5. When trolling for browns is it preferable to use inline boards as opposed to big double boards?
  6. Seems to to me some memory from the past tells me it's bad mojo to rename a boat without going through some sort of special process and ceremony . Wat's your take? i'm not normally superstitious nothing has ever happened to me because of superstition knock on wood. My fishing hat is 9 years old.
  7. Great video...not my cup of tea but looks like lots of fish for those that choose to participate
  8. I'm using them with the eye above center the way I see most other boards, to my way of thinking the previous owner of the boat who I have lost contact for must have marked the boards for facing the stern and setting lines. My initial question was what effect does moving the eye forward and back and up and down?
  9. How about vertical placement I see most homemade boards the tow eye is above center Cannon folders are on center would lower positioning cause the outside board to dig more?
  10. What is the best downrigger weight for bouncing bottom for lakers
  11. Occasionally used for muskie but more often for muskie I use Hose Fatties behind a modified church walleye board . The big boards will be mostly for trout and salmon.
  12. Watched a video on You Tube guy trolling on Arrow lake i BC. His attachment was about a 5 inch chain mounted on both ends so he could attach anywhere along its length.
  13. How does tow eye placement affect the running of boards both vertical and horizontal. My boat came with a pair of homemade boards that were marked left and right and I have been running them as if they were marked for facing the back of the boat otherwise the tow eye would be mounted really low on the board which just didn't look right to me. They pull ok the way i have run them with the tow eye above center. The Cannon folding boards I have been hoping to stumble across used and that i have used on a friends boat have the eye vertically centered. . Curious about the fore aft positioning.
  14. Anyone have plans for homemade folding boards
  15. Any opinions on the folding planners and any difference in the Cannons or Rivieras. I have a set of homemade boards that pull like mules but take up a lot of room in an 18 foot boat. Thanks
  16. Have any of you guys ever ran your probe at the surface and compared speed with your GPS i've never had a lo of faith in paddle wheels.
  17. So my understanding is that leadcore sinks at about 5 feet per colour so a 5 colour would go down 25' and a 10 aprox 50'. What I'm thinking is the line would continue to sink as you let out more backing and if you had enough you could get the 5 colour much deeper. Any thoughts on this ? What is the life of leadcore how often do you replace?
  18. If you could only run one for the rest of your days would it be the peanut or the spin & glow?
  19. How do you fish the peanuts is it the same as the spin & glo's behind a cow bell? What size?
  20. So if it's caught out in the lake trolling is it a Rainbow or a Steelhead? I've always figured they were only Steelhead in the river and tho I've caught a fair number trolling never one in the river so the first would be a trophy ( never kept ).. My brother in law out on the west coast says we don't have steelhead only rainbows because our fish have never gone out to salt.
  21. "wife wont let me keep toys in the driveway." guess we know who the boss is If that was in Ontario I'd be all over it
  22. Any idea what the result of having the back of the two boards even would be? This would allow the boards to stand on end. Still looking for plans for collapsing boards. Where are Paul's plans?
  23. Wouldn't being high lift the inside board and make the outside dig?
  24. The plan I saw was not clear and I read the bill of materials as 1x8 The homemade boards that came with my boat are 7 inches tall and about 2 inches shorter and the pulls are either very low or very high. The leading edge is not compound cut and the angles are metal covered. I have yet to run them. I have only used Church inlines or Cannon collapsible which I like. The Cannons belong to a friend and I would like to find a good used pair
