  1. They are not correct at least for the salmon and trout slam. We had 5 salmon and 2 trout. Would have been in first or second based on these numbers. Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. I use power pro also for long lead lines. Mono for short lead because it is cheaper. Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. This is a prop off my old boat. Like new. No dents or dings. Was replaced with a SS prop and I just ran across it today. 13-3/4 x 15. $50 plus shipping. Located in Buffalo/Niagara Falls area. Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. I set up my first copper the winter and used 30 pound power pro. I see you are recommending 65 pound. A friend of mine recommended the 30 pound. Will this be okay or should I respool with heavier line? It is a 300 copper on an okuma connector. Thanks for any help you can provide. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Did some plots last year. Just disked early wait for the weeds to start growing. Then hit it with weed killer then a real light disking and planted clover. If the land hasn't been worked for awhile you will probably need lots of lime. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Had a few older reels break on me during this past week. Started doing an internet search on reels and reviews. To my surprise a reel that came out with great reviews is the Shakespeare ATS. They are under $40 and had very good reviews. Do to their price I am hesitant to spend the money. I am looking for anyone that has experience with these for salmon and can give me their opinion. Thanks for your input. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I did that with lead and it worked okay but if there are any waves at all the line drags in the water. With copper being heavier I suspect it would drag worse. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. I run the lead core on the walleye boards at both walleye and salmon speeds. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. I run 7 - 10 color lead on my church walleye boards without and issues. The walleye board is only a 1/2 inch longer than the OR12 you have. As far as copper we have run 300 copper on them. They don't sink but they do drag back a lot. I would not recommend running that much copper. But 200 copper would work fine I think. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Menards? Is there one in N.Y. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. I also fished lake Michigan for 10 years and have been over here for the last 3 years. I run the same spread here as in Lake michigan....except in the summer. The fleas here will drive you nuts. Need a large diameter line for your riggers for sure. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. We bought a used boat with a 2007 150 optimax. Put about 500 hours on it last year with no issues. Down load the manual off line and read it. Make sure to run optimax oil and I use seafaom for a fuel additive. The only issue we have is that while trolling you have to trim the motor up to make sure water doesn't come in the rear vent. I you don't trim it up it starts to hesitate if water goes into the vent. I also had a yamaha F115 before this one and the noise is a little more when trolling but not too bad. There is no smell of oil like the old 2 strokes when trolling but you do get a slight smell when running above 3000 rpm. I also did the online research and several things that guys question my motor does also like a lot of steam off the back at trolling speed. A buddy of mine has the same motor but a 2012 and it does the same thing. So far no complaints. It doesn't use a ton of oil filled it to the brim this year and with 25 hours into it we have only used made a quart. The motor does have a lot of power for sure it pushes a 21 foot cuddy to plane fast and we reach 38 mph.
  13. Just upgraded. Removed a 595c the gps and transducer are fried but the unit itself still works. If anyone needs the unit it is free.
  14. My boat is also a 20 foot cuddy and the nauticus tabs worked. They are also out of the way when netting and setting lines.
