  1. This boat is an outstanding and clean Multi-species rig.  From trolling on the Finger lakes, Ontario and Erie to chasing panfish, it can do it all.  Also a great family boat to pull the kids on a tube or skis.

    This boat 17'10 long and has a 94" beam, has the 2XB hull and is powered by 115 E-tec. It has a 38 gallon fuel tank, 2 lighted live wells and lots of storage; including an eight tube rod locker and two battery storage compartment in the bow. This is a very stable and safe platform that tops out at 35 mph.  The boat sits on a '08 Shorelander trailer with spare tire, surge brakes, boat buckles and a swing away tongue. Tires were new last year.


    Included with the boat are:

    Lowrance LMS-522c-iGPS fish finder that is hooked up to a transducer switch at the helm that can change between the stern transducer or hook up to a bow mount trolling motor as well.

    2 Penn Fathom master 600 downriggers. w/ weights and boom mount rod holders

    Lowrance Marine radio model LVR-250 w/ antenna.

    Just my 2 cents and everyone has their own style, but I would invest in a set of inline planer boards. I prefer wide wobble baits like reef runner, bomber, cordell stingers, and bay rat xld.Well tuned and fish the marks and I always run one high in the water column. My biggest fish almost always come on the highest line, even in deep water.even in 40 fow I will run one line in the 12-14 ft range. 30 years of meticulous notes on Oneida has also taught me that faster trolls produce bigger fish. So I would start there for what it,s worth. Like I said everyone fishes there own way.also might want to download the precision trolling app. The dive curves are very close.

    Thanks Brian. I have trolled for eyes on Erie so I think I have most of the gear, just not sure about stick bait patterns etc... perch, gizzard shad, and goby would be a few guesses I would probably try?  My in lines are the older ones so they do not have the spring loaded strike indicator flags so small fish that hang on can be a pain at times.  We also seemed to do better on Erie with a faster troll. Seemed to be less bycatch.  Some days we ran up to 3.0 on the GPS. 

  3. I've never trolled on Onieda. I have jigged but would like to possibly troll.  What would be a good starting point as far as stickbait styles and colors?  You guys run leadcore, snap weights, jet divers?

  4. We can rant all we want to vent our frustration.  When you start to take it out on each other it defeats the purpose.  We all know the only way to see a possibility of change is to write to your local legislator and voice your opinion.  Obviously, it won't be an immediate change but if enough voices are heard then there is a possibility of change.  Then it is up to us to police ourselves and social distance at the launch and not make a huge deal about it.  Its not an easy fix.  Fight through it and persevere.

    If you like Sitka gear, check out www.pnumaoutdoors.com   Half the price as Sitka and similar price to Kuiu.  Lifetime guarantee and twice the vapor exchange rate as any brand on the market.  Means less cold due to sweating.  I bought the Selkirk all weather gear.  Fantastic. 

    X2 I bought the Selkirk Jacket and Bibs and am very happy so far.  Waterproof, windproof and light weight.
