  1. While out this past weekend, after landing a brown, I put the lip grippers on the fish connected the wrist strap to a line and back in the water after cutting the gills to bleed out. After a couple minutes I ago to retrieve the fish and you guessed it... NO FISH... but the grippers were still clamped shut. Has this happened to anyone else, is there a fix or should I stop bleeding them out with the grippers and just throw em back in with just a cord thru the gills ? Tks
  2. When finishing up the day and probably the season last Sunday morning one of my riggers failed to stop when breaking the water. Luckily my buddy was paying attention and unplugged it. Back at the dock I dropped the weight in the water and as soon as I plugged the rigger back in it wanted to retrieve. Anyone out there ever have a similar issue ? Simple as replacing the switch ? Thanks
  3. I have a Magda Pro 30dx reel that was purchased this past winter. When flicking the lever to put it into freespool this does not work. Has anyone else come across this issue and have a simple repair ? If not, who in the pulaski area repairs reels ? Thank you
  4. Just spoke with a conservation officer. He said that if your boat is in the water and you can get to it that you're free to use it. Also said if a launch is not barricaded you're able to use that as well. He did say they were not given any direction on how to enforce the ruling. He did say that marinas were not essential and had to close. I asked about repairs and gas, repairs were only for essential boats (police ect..) they can't be open to sell gas.
  5. how & what needs to be done ?
  6. I have an EZ Steer connected from an Alpha I outdrive to a yamaha 9.9 kicker. When turning left the kicker is barely angles and with alittle bit of a wind won't turn the boat. Turning right the kicker turns just fine. When back at the dock I turned wheel to the left and noticed the tube compressed. If I detach the easy steer I'm able to push the kicker in either direction Any input would be appreciated
  7. I have been making them and have seen all the video. I have a ton of flies so cutting them down to 2.5" for teasers is no big deal. My only question was whether or not I needed a bead chain. At his point I think I'm going to add a ball bearing swivel roughly 18" above the meat head and tie the teasers above that. Put a loop on the flouro and attach that to the snap swivel on the flasher
  8. Decided this year will be the year to finally throw meat into the mix. And since I'm the kind of person that enjoys catching fish from something I make myself I thought I would look into making meat rigs. What I have done so far is started with 3 arms length of 50lb flouro, snelled a treble on, added two beads, snelled an octopus on then a dreamweaver meat head. Up past the head I cut 3 trolling flies down to 2-2.5 inches for my teasers and put them on the line by looping small beads. Now heres my question.......... do I need to use a bead chain ??? My thought was to put a loop at the end like when making flies and this loop would connect to the snap swivel on the flasher and this would prevent line twist. Looking forward to your input

  10. Looking for recommendations on an autopilot for the above referenced. Boat has an I/O with rack n pinion steering
  11. I purchased a 4x2 folding table from Walmat. Folds into a 2x2 square making it easy to store down below. Adjustable legs and fits perfectly over my doghouse. I cut a hole to put my knives to keep them from sliding off. For $48 didnt think you could beat the price, table is made of HDPE. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Best-Choice-Products-4ft-Indoor-Outdoor-Folding-Portable-Plastic-Picnic-Party-Dining-Camp-Table-w-Handle-Lock-White/150299151?athcpid=150299151&athpgid=athenaItemPage&athcgid=null&athznid=PWVUB&athieid=v0&athstid=CS002&athguid=466001f5-29985e8c-2963a94ae74d01b2&athena=true
  12. send me your cell and I'll text or call you later on this afternoon
  13. This is my first, not done just yet. Was very easy, could tell you how to do it Sent from my SM-J727P using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. For those of you that want a special mate storage box but don't think the $65 price tag is worth it. I am going to try to duplicate the box for a much lower cost. Might not be professional but will do the job. Standby for future posts in classified section. Considering gluing foam to top so that LED lights can be added to energize the glow spoons. The hunt for foam is on Sent from my SM-J727P using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. What about an EZ steer ? Sent from my SM-J727P using Lake Ontario United mobile app
