  1. We are inside trying for browns from IBay to Webster - thinking of sliding out- any recommendations? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Not the result that I was hoping for. My new boat seems to be cursed. I have now logged more time than I care to think about - not a single fish. Nothing. Not a bounce, twitch or wiggle....since I got it....last August.... Today I had a tournament team for the shootout. We left at 5:15. Lures in the water at 6:15. We fished from 90 fow to 380 fow. Ran two riggers- two dipsey and two leadcore (10 colors) off walleye boards. Depth covered from 40-190 down. Used flashers- used spin doctors - used dodgers. Tried meat rig and multiple fly setups. Green spoons, red spoons, black spoons, white - glow and no glow. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. I think I'm cursed. I went 1.9-2.6. Swerved- did everything I could think. I tested down temps using the fishawk TD...targeted areas....marked fish....nothing. Marked fish all day. Nothing. Most were around 100-150 fow and scattered through the water column. Ranged from 15 ft to bottom. We fished all the way till the weigh in. Hit the Dock at 5:15 in Irondequoit with an empty cooler and a shattered faith in these fish. I've never gone so long like this. Anyone know a way to break the curse? Exorcism? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  7. This is actually a better photo of a base that resembles mine. Does anyone have experience mounting a track system to something like this? It has MANY different pre-drilled locations for mounting items, but I have no idea if a track will fit and my confidence that Cannon-to-Cannon mounting is possible....
  8. I've thought about that, but before I spend even more money purchasing objects to put on the base mount, I'm not certain now that the holes on the track will mirror the holes on the mount- in which case I will still have to drill into the cannon mount to create holes for that new track- which I could have just drilled holes I guess for the base anyways and saved the expense of the track. I really like the track idea though. How far apart are the holes? I could go measure to see if it would work. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. I have a different holder. I bought two of these separately because I didn't have the space for that larger downrigger based system (which I REALLY like the look of by the way.) My issue with this one is that it doesn't screw into the holes on the downrigger base that looks SIMILAR to the Cannon one I copied a photo of below. The difference with the one I have versus the one below is mine has MULTIPLE holes for many different size downriggers. I just want to mount this rod holder on that base. StoneAM2006 - Did you do this with a hand drill? I see a Harbor Freight Tap and Die Set and I'm not sure if I could do this with a simple drill. Is it possible?
  10. I have the single rod rodholders that are separate from the downrigger itself. I think that would fit - but the regular base does not match. I also have a slightly different model of cannon downrigger base. I'm In Rochester Stoneam2006- how far away are you or do you know anyone close to here that can help? Thanks!

  11. I purchased two of the cannon dual axis rod holders and intended to mount them on a base that is already attached to my boat that is a multi option cannon downrigger base. It turns out that the rod holder base and the downrigger bases for cannon products are not the same - not even close. I do not want to have to create new holes in the boat and like the location of the current base. Is anyone aware of a mounting option? Is there a universal plate that may work? I see one from Cisco but I'm not sure if that works. Does anyone know if the track mounting systems will match the holes on any of the cannon downriggers? I know the manual mini mag downrigger unit base fits on this cannon mount. I have two electric and two manual downriggers and will never use the manuals. I prefer dipsey divers and that is why I got the more sturdy rod holders. I figured staying with cannon products only would work fine - I was wrong. Help is appreciated!

  13. We have been too far out - out in 180. Are they still biting? We have lead and ff SD - ff @ 115 and 140 right now. Spoons in green at 50 Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. Finally! It has been...a process. Are you ready to fish!?!? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. We never broke the 180 fow area and yes we trolled from the Bay to the NE and then E in front of Webster. I moved speed between 2.1 and 3.0 to change things along the way. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
