    New Salmon net

    I really like my Cummins net can order different net handle lengths and they are light. I like a light net easier to handle.

    Diawa sealine reels

    Just bought a bunch of the 47’s. That is a great short core reel for the Walleye guys to. You can’t beat that price. Crazy good deal

    Best wire for divers

    I tell you I read about tie a mono leader on my wires on this site. I use a small spro swivel with a nail knot to my mono. 20 ft of money also helps shock.
  4. I previously ran two divers per side. Braid on outside wire on inside. I found dialing in my wires and concentrating on one per side was better for me. A 10color is a great chute rod and very versatile.
  5. I grew up fishing with my grandfather on Lake Ontario our of Olcott and although he doesn’t fish anymore we still talk a lot of fishing. In the early 90’s he would always run a lot of stick baits for salmon and steelhead all year year. Some of my best days salmon fishing was running diving stick baits bombers, smoos, rapala shad and others off boards. He also ran crystalinas off riggers stretched back. No temp probe just a paper graph and we went fast 3mph. He was very often more successful then a lot of the charters and in the summer we fished offshore almost exclusively. I was young but I remember catching giant steel head especially off boards on diving sticks. I’m now 35 own a nice boat and fish Ontario in the spring and run Walleye Charters on Erie all summer. Spent a lot of time trying to fish like the guys in the know on Ontario and wasn’t as successful as I would have liked. Wasnt until I started to fish like I was comfortable did I really start becoming successful. This spring I ran a lot of segmented cores with spoons and started to run less and less spin doctors. Ran bay rat long shallows clear orange specifically was great. I also noticed that I continued to catch more fish mid day. Couple of my buddies whom Walleye fish mainly go up to Ontario also use a lot of sticks and do very especially when conditions are tough. My question is is do you guys think stickbaits are under utilized after the fish move off the shore lines? Are many fisherman using stick baits more then discussed? Ron

    Helix 7 for trolling?

    I bought a new boat and have a gen 3 lowrance hd12 with a through haul transducer. I can mark bait cruising and I really like that unit lots of bells and whistles. On my older boat I had a Helix 10 standard hummingbird transducer. The ease of use was great, fishing marking was great, gps with standard mapping chip was great. They mark fish very similar but the Helix brand is much more affordable. My opion is they are both great units can’t go wrong with either.
  8. I have a outriggers for sale. Just removed from boat. Everything included. I can get more pictures for interested individuals. Reasonable offers considered.

    Get rid of mono?

    Yes. I fish both Erie and Ontario and wire is the way to go. I used to run braid but I’m finding they stay in the cabin most days and wire outperforms braid and is more versatile. I run wire wire to a 15 ft mono leader, then the dipsey. The mono makes it easier to store and if you need to grab the line it’s easier on you’re hands. Also works as a shock absorber.

    Dunkirk, NY Fishing

    Lots of lakers right out front of Dunkirk. 100 ft
  11. Bought a 2002 3000 exspress pursuit still looking for a trailer any advice would be greatly appreciated?? I’d consider both used or new. Looks like used would be almost impossible to find.
  12. Take a look at these I’ll never use em pick in Dunkirk. Make a reasonable offer. They are 14 ft were they slid in so I’m guess 18 ft total. I believe they are perko. Complete setup if you help unscrew everything from boat deal will get better.
  13. Anyone know of anyone whom makes and or sells stainless covers for the air intakes. I lost the plastic cover and getting a plastic replacement ain’t cheap. Thinking stainless cover would look really cool. Its that plastic vented cover.

    “Duffy” from Wicked Tuna

    I love the show and was sad when I heard Duffy died which just shows you how the show connects to people. SK8 Man, I’ve had relationship with most of the kardasian sisters and for you to criticize there critically acclaimed show is offensive to me.
  15. I would buy a set or two if anyone got any used ones to get rid of. PM me. Ron
