  1. That’s awesome, a big relief to know that, thank you. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. I use the general fishing mode. Here are a couple pictures to get you started, just going to have to play around with it.Also make sure you download the latest software.I had trouble with the transducer staying straight with it being so long, it would always tip down after awhile. The plastic bracket finally cracked and lowrance replaced it no problem with a steel one and I added a support bar so now it won’t move. Good luck and have fun.

  3. I emailed Capt. Tim Maxam, owner of the TowBoat,on April 25th about when he would have the boat ready for service. I found out the hard way a few years ago in April when I broke down that it wasn’t available 24/7 since he told me he doesn’t have it ready till mid May weather permitting. He told me “ looks like we won’t be going in unless something changes. Looking to sell the business. As of now it looks like Rochester will handle calls, have yet to work out the details.” I sure hope this isn’t so, would hate to lose such a valuable service. It would take hours for someone to come from Rochester all the way to Sodus. Can anybody verify this. Please prove me wrong. Some of you must know Tim personally. Thanks in advance.

  5. Thanks for the report, what depth were you fishing. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. I want to give a shout out to capt Paul, Kingfisher III, for turning me on to the incredible fishing out of oak orchard. We had a steady pick from 7 to 3 and went 19 for 22 with the biggest king at 16 lbs. Targeted 150-200 fow with a 4 rigger, 2 diver setup. Riggers parked at 30,45,60,75 took most of the fish. Divers out 140 and 170 took a few and lost a few. Mostly a spoon bite tho. Sorry no pics, all fish were unhooked and released from the net outside the boat. Thanks again big brother! Hope you can make it out to Sloodus this year and help me find some fish! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I understand that when a fish grabs the cheater it slides down the main line to the lure, but what happens when a fish grabs the lure on the main line? Do you have to stop and remove the cheater before reeling the fish all the way in or do you just power through it when it reaches the rod tip? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Yes John is still in business, I believe that he spends the winter months in Florida and comes back around April/May. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Using the totalscan transducer. The bottom pic is using downscan overlay. I just started playing with that setting before I pulled the boat out. Haven’t even tried the sidescan yet. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. The carbon 9 is a great unit. This was my first year with it and I was still learning how to fine tune it at the end of the season. It has a lot of possible settings and it will take awhile to get used to. The first pic shows my 3 cannon balls and my slider at 30 ft. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. 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

  13. 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
  14. Also have mine mounted about 10-12 inches from my fishhawk with no interference at all. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. 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
  16. 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.

  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. Haha! Anyone can shoot fish in a barrel , you never see a report of somebody getting skunked at the oak. Told ya if you wanna test your skills, fish outta Sodus then we will compare notes, besides, you missed 16 fish!! [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  20. 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
  21. Nice job, thanks for the report Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. Fantastic, glad to see someone catching them. Thanks for the report Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
