  1. Go west waters warmed drastically you may get a few eyes way east but mostly you'll waist your time . Another thing to that really affects east end is the moon . I would at least fish west of sturgeon Pt . Deeper water is going to be your best bet . Oh yeah Erie is now 2 degrees above average.

  2. @bailey yep, fish with him a lot!

    Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    I help him with info randy is good people. He called me when you left harbor headed home.glad you did well ,no net and all lol

  3. If your anchored you have the right of way other boats should avoid you anyway . I've never had a problem trolling around anchored boats or fishing while anchored. I fish Erie mostly and it gets hectic out there at times.

  4. Yes Bay Rats are the new walleye slayers they are all 100% American made and have a strict quality control . Renowskis are junk I won't buy another no more leaky baits or worrying about hook eyes pulling out let alone the front loop and the paint stays on no more Chinese junk for me . Some friends of mine took a tour of the bay rat facilities and they are big boys they grabbed a body out of a rack and hooked leaders to front and back with handles they tried to pull loops out it was a no go. You can ask them yourself look up Point Blank Outdoors on FB or Mark Hitcome they'll tell you personally. Also the color selection is awesome I am slowly stocking up on them .

  5. Do your homework the aluminum islander is a great boat the problems lay in the power plant or a certain one the 3.7 170 hp mercruiser or what's called or referee to the 460. they have exhaust manifold issues especially the closed loop cooling systems Plus the charging system has issues if it's a magneto type. On the good side repowering with a dependable engine can be cheap and easy I did it with a 165 mercruiser straight 6.a 3 liter is an easier swap . Google it if you know what engine is in it search for issues and problems it would of cost me more for a manifold than it did to go more dependable Then you have to find an uncracked manifold which will eventually crack if it's that engine in it.

  6. We use just that exactly, buy cheap shower curtain hoops and the cheap plastic clothes pins . Drill a hole thru one side of clothes pin to hold curtain ring and you have a release also use number 16 rubber bands they work Great if you want a more stout release buy better quality clothes pins.
