  1. Nice report Matt. It was a "FNG" invasion! Absolutely disgusted with the guide activity. Something's gotta give... Sent from my SM-N950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. I ordered one from fish USA the other night. Thanks guys...
  3. I had a rookie in the boat today who broke one of my favorite dipsy rods. Daiwa heartland 9’6” 12-30lb line. It looks like Heartlands are no longer available, looks like the Great Lakes model is its replacement? Anybody have any experience with them? Any suggestions for dipsy rods? I prefer a more parabolic action for dispsy and 9’6”. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Too much bait! Well fed fish! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. I had one rig that was the only rig firing today for lakers. 5 color leadcore with a r and r razor spoon, purple/silver. Caught kings on the razor blue/silver last week. They catch fish. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. I carve decoys and I also do handcarved fishing lures. I have an addiction with making everything! Got my riggers zeroed today, worked out great. Thanks again! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Thank you very much! I appreciate it. Mark Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. I got a pair of digitroll 2 riggers with my new to me boat. I don't have a manual for them. Does anyone know how to zero them? I need to zero them with the weights at the waterline. They are a little off. Thanks, Mark Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. And his spoons catch fish! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. Check out the shimano convergence mooching rod. I have 2 of the 10'6" models with daiwa mooching reel. They are fun to run on riggers and I love the drag on the reels. I've caught kings on them with no problems. They are not the best with rookies though. Take a little getting use to so I don't put them out when I have new guys on the boat. Mark
  11. Thanks for the comments guys. Appreciate it. Pap, yes that is circuit board material. It's great stuff. Here is a crankbait inspired by the chicken wing spoon. That has been my best spoon over the years in the flx so I had to make a hardbait version! Mark
  12. Thanks for the replies guys. Most people ask how long it takes to make them. Tough to judge because I do everything in multiples and stages but I timed myself with a similar bait and cut out, carved and sanded it in less than an hour. Not too bad. Once I get some solid designs dialed in I'm gonna make a mold and start casting them out of resin. Then I can form the body, ballast and wire all in about 10 minutes! Here is some alewife baits I've been working on. We caught kings on some of these a couple years ago. Mark
  13. All I have left is Lot 4 and 6 at the above listed prices. Thanks! Mark
  14. Handmade Goby Trolling Lure Been working on some goby lures. Completely handmade, handcarved, I make the rattles too. These dive 3-4' and have a nice wobble. They are loud with the rattles. I tested a prototype a couple years ago and caught fish right off the bat with them. Looking forward to testing these soon. I don't think I'll be able to drop below a 15lb flouro leader!
