  1. Carry a loud air horn and don’t be afraid to use it. I’ve had to use mine on more than one occasion. It does seem like they use you as a waypoint. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Auotpilot

    Is the lowrance outboard pilot for outboards only or will it work with an I/O hydraulic assisted cable steer Mercruiser. (Penn Yan) Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Boat transom transducer recommendation....

    Also have mine mounted about 10-12 inches from my fishhawk with no interference at all. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Prevent Fish Finder OVER HEAT!

    The Carbons do get hot, I checked mine with an infrared digital temperature reader and it was 120 degrees on the touchscreen. I called lowrance and they are aware of the problem but you are right they had no solution. He said they were good up to 140 degrees! Holy crap really! But yes, I also try to shield mine from the sun. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Boat transom transducer recommendation....

    Totalscan should be mounted on starboard side per installation instructions to eliminate prop bubble interference. Make sure you get it tight on the bracket because mine kept tipping down, shooting forward. Found this out as I checked it while anchored and swimming, twice it happened.

  7. Fished solo from 4:30 - 8-30, west of port, 190 - 325 fow. Went 6 - 7 with 3 doubles, largest being just under 20 lb. 240 dipsey took 3 fish. 60’ rigger had 48 degrees. All fish caught in 50 degree water or less. But the fleas were horrible! On my 20 lb main line seemed like every foot had a patch of flea on it. Is everyone else seeing this too? Switching over to my 30 lb today, even the wire had a lot on it but that’s easier to get off of. Mainly a fly bite for me. Had two spoon bites, magnum glow green frog took one and a fixed slider stinger size bloody nose took the other. Green and gold FF on 80 rigger had two hits. Have a safe and happy 4th![emoji631] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Nice, what size and length was the pipe you used for the mold and how much does it weigh. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Release above or below my probe?

    Don't use that crappy breakaway cable that comes with the probe, I lost a cannonball a few years ago when I was bringing the ball over to me. There must have been a weak spot in the cable and it broke free alright, right to the bottom. I made up a heavy duty rig to attach the ball. My probe never comes within 10 ft of the bottom so I don't need it to break free. Also, those probes are about $250 to replace so if it's not in the water it's in the protective case, I don't dangle it from the downrigger. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Nice job, thanks for the report Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Thanks for the tips, I get impatient if I don't start catching fish right away and tend to go north. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Thanks pap, I feel a little better knowing I'm not the only one struggling. Are you having the same problem with fleas as I am? I'm going to try sea flea and see if that helps. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. So the last few day's I've fished in the pm and haven't done very well, 2 fish each nite. The fishings better in the morning right, so I get up at 4:30 today, drive 30 min out to Sodus, putt- putt for another 30 min to get out to the lake, then another 30 min to get out to 150 fow and set up. Now it's 6:30. I troll around the 150-170 area for an hr with nothing happening. Even shadowed some charter captains from a distance and listened to them on the radio, they weren't having much luck either. Decided to go north and not turn around till I caught something. Finally in 315 the 250 wire with f/f fires with a nice 16 lb King. By the time I net him and clear the other rods of fleas(4 riggers, 2 wires) I'm in freaking 450 fow. Turn around, head south and get one more King, 10 lbs, in 180 fow on rigger 130 down f/f. Missed one on 100 rigger with f/f in 160. Ended up 2-3 for almost 7 hrs of trolling! Oh well, better than working. Nothing on spoons or meat. The fleas are horrible. Even on wire. If you wait a half hr to clear them it's a mess. Had about 18 inches of flea at the end of my wire dipseys at times So that's my report if you want to call it that, good luck to all. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
