  1. For me, lures are most important for both casting and trolling. Rods and reels are probably equally important next. Rods are probably more important casting than trolling though. It’s important to match your rods and reels to baits and casting applications. Not going to want to throw a pounder on a 7’ mh and not going to want to reel in a double 12 with a Abu Garcia 6500. Most trolling applications i prefer a glass rod and a good line counter reel with cranking power and a smooth drag. Although I like Okuma Catalinas for most of my trolling, I think Shimano casting and trolling reels are the best built/longest lasting. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Nice fish. Congrats. In my experience, tigers are shorter than pures of equal girth and head size. Tigers have shorter tail sections or something. I’ve handled lots of fish (way more pures than tigers)and I’m a very good judge of size in person, but some pictures can be deceiving. I think old mans guess is pretty good. Id say your fish is about 40”. Could be 42, could be 39. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  4. My season started in March, but... Spend quality time with my dad on the water. Continue to teach my daughter how to catch muskies, what's important about the sport, and have fun doing it. Continue to learn new Canadian water and techniques. Just fish and stay away from the drama, internet experts, online bashing, and overpriced lure sales/raffles/collecting.

  6. You’re welcome. Walleye guys that run tiller kickers don’t have the issue we had. Plus, like i said, i think they have a better solution now. How do you intend to fish with the kicker? Thats what you need to consider. That rig looks very nice though. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Good luck with the boat. I have a friend with a 196 Fishmaster. It's been a great boat for him. We had a 250 Verado on our 2007 Lund that we bought new, however, we got a new boat last year with Yamahas. The Verado is a very nice, reliable engine. Has to be the quietest engine made, no vibration, etc. Super powerful, fast, and responsive with digital throttle. The verado electric power steering is very nice (can drive the boat with one finger) but it had a big drawback for us. We trolled on our kicker that had a tie bar to the Verado alot, and the power steering drew more power than the alternator on our 20hp kicker could keep up with. We would have to start the big engine to charge things back up every so often. As a result we had nearly 3000 hours on our Verado when we sold the boat. It still worked great though. I know we didn't have the best set up...they have a better system now to compensate for the power draw. But if you intend to troll with your kicker tied to the verado, make sure it has an isolator and a battery just for the kicker. I think you'll want a big agm battery for the verado too. (i think that's the best solution now). It's worth asking the current owner about if you want to troll with your kicker to keep hours off your main engine.

  13. I havent been out since 11/4. Sorry i cant help. I think they got about a foot of snow that way last week Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Not sure about a campsite at chq. The koa and camp prendergast arent open. Maybe camp chautauqua could accommodate you. Fishing hasn’t been as good as it was for us. Casting seems to be the best bet right now. It looks pretty cold this week there. Yesterday may have been our last day on chq for the year. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
