  1. Out of the brine!
  2. Nice job. Will be up in 2 wks. Sent from my Moto G Play using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Back on here to say thanks to Tom Allen for his last post. His info broke my 3 day skunk out of Fairhaven. I went out yesterday after the blow, slowed things down to 2.0 , scored a nice Coho and king on my 50* rigger at 85dwn over 115 on Big fin pulled by an old Pro troll green with no echip and also popped a nice king on a Green/yellow Jplug behind a mag diver on 1.5 out 185 . The 3rd fish came about 5 min. after sunset.Today dropped one on a green/glow jplug on the middle high rigger and dropped another on the diver/ grn/yel j set up with no other bites
  4. Mon. did 4 for 4 out of Fairhaven then 3 skunked days in a row. blown off today. I even fought the seas Thurs. and didn't see another boat out. Hopefully get out this afternoon. Mon. Big laker hit the small veggie spoon mupped down the middle on my high rigger Aprox. 54* water. 2 hit a Green UV Big wienie fly modded with an Atomik Chip harness behind NBK Pro E. on a Mag diver 1.5 setting 185 out. The other King came off White crush with a wht/silver Atomik fly off my middle rigger in 50* water. Fish pics are all from Mon. Only.
  5. My spare batt is just in a battery box in the corner with leads ran to connect it in parallel if needed.
  6. I run a 1980's 7.5 Honda with little to no charging at troll speeds. Run 3 riggers, GPs, Fishhawk, Sonar,& Troll King.. With a reg. starting battery it fishes all day and still has enough amps left in it to fire up the 88hp OB. I do carry a spare Group[ 27 deep cycle as a reserve just in case. The only fall out is my sonar will start not marking bottom in 500FOW+. So a good used 4stroke and an extrza $100 deep cycle battery gets my vote. Plus it's good to have a 2nd battery anyways just in case!
  7. Well the Lake flipped the day I got there and had a slow week of it. Spent a decent amount of time out in 550+ FOW but did not kill them. Inside I did nothing. Only 2 matures for the week and they were 15 16 lbs. Some teens and steelhead saved the week. Orange Tux in stingray size was our MVP. Steelhead love that spoon out of the Oak!!
  8. Nice fish. Were you trolling or drifting Blood worms? What port were you fishing out of? We sometimes go out of Newbrg with Blood worms.
  9. Did anyone else have to look up the definition of contentious? My pet peeve is guys that will list a boat for sale for $8-20k. No pics, no year,no location!!!
  10. I'll do Fairhaven 28 Aug thru Labor day weekend. Will probably start the trip in a tent 26 Aug. For some reason I booked late and got stuck with a cabin with a start date on a Sun.28Aug. Will connect if you're there.
