    Walleye Net

    I run the cabelas rubber net this is similar but mine has the heavy rubber net. I couldn't find it on their site so they may not carry it anymore. Either way get the heavy rubber net no matter what you buy. I regularly net 25"-30" walleye using the size net I linked below. https://www.cabelas.com/shop/en/cabelas-custom-landing-nets Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  2. Man I'm green with envy! Haha sounds like they're out there still I just gotta put in the time. I've only been able to do a dawn troll 5:30am-9:30am lately. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Anyone seeing any action. I've caught a bunch of perch and every other species trolling but the eye fishing has been slowwww. I've changed baits and locations nothing seems to be firing a rod. Anyone else struggling too? Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. I'll play, Suzuki. I'm assuming we are talking 4 strokes. I think there is a reason the majority of the coastal service boats run Suzuki. I've been on boats with every manufacturer I can say the zuke and evinrude motors seemed to be the best running. Hondas burn oil and are dogs. Yamaha are reliable just like almost any new motor all depends of you want to pay for it. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Yeah i was thinking 19" or 21". Unfortunately I only get 1 shot at this. Those stainless props ain't cheap. I replaced the stock carb because it was all sorts of messed up from the previous owner. The boat is the 241 so 25' 5". Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Cupping happens from swaying. I ate up a pair of bias ply in the matter of 3000 miles on my landscape trailer. I did 3 things to try and remedy the problem. Im not sure if all of them were a fix our just one. I went up to a higher ply weight rating, from bias ply to radials, and added an anti sway. You can try all but the anti sway on the boat trailer.

  7. Re-did the motor in my boat and swung for the fences. Well the engine builder and I hit it out of the park and the boat runs great with a little more pick me up. Right now the motor is running up way higher than it should. I'm looking to get the max rpm around 4700. Current setup is a 14.5x17" 4 blade stainless. It will rev out to 5100 if I let it and 42mph. The calculated prop slip is 23% so I figure going up in pitch will lower slip but thinking bigger diameter will help too. What do you guys think will get me where I would like or close to it.

  8. Anyone locally that knows the condition of the ice? I was planning a trip up this weekend but I'm not sure if it will hold together with the high winds the next day or so. Anyone know the status of the ice up there?
  9. Not looking good for the ice on the east end.
  10. Anyone have any pictures from today? Wind is really starting to pick up around here.
  11. I re-spool by testing the line about 10' from the fluorocarbon to mono knot. If I can wrap a bunch around a screwdriver handle and pull with all my strength and it doesn't break I wait another and check again next year.
  12. I looked into it for my older 2 stroke. The problem is that you have to actuate the throttle and the mechanical spark advance. It takes a whole lot of force more than those little actuators can produce. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Thanks guys found a local guy that is going to go through and clean the block and inspect it. I tore it all down and happy for me it has stock bore with little to no corrosion in the bores. Bad news is the crank is toast 4 bad rod bearings and 2 bad main bearings. No spun bearings just worn badly. Going with new cam and crank possibly a light boring. It's a 5.7L 350 hydraulic roller block. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Anyone have a or multiple machine shops they would recommend? I want to get my block and crank checked and machined? Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Looks like you aren't pulling the boat eye up to the roller at the ramp but with the bow touching the roller. I have this happen and have to remember to keep cranking even after the boat touches the roller or I get the same thing.
