  1. Is there a time during summer when the fleas disappear? We normally fish early but could not make it due to covid. Need some salmon for the winter. Thanks for input. Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. If anyone is registered but can not make the class I would be interested in purchasing your tickets. Please message me. I would need 2. Thanks. Sent from my SM-G950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Menards? Is there one in N.Y. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. 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
  14. 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.
