  1. The auto chart is really easy, but you do have to buy the auto chart pro if you want more than 8 hours of mapping. The mapping is why I went with the helix. The Garmin is a great unit as well. Justin Okrepki NYSDEC licensed guide #7324 http://www.otiscolakeguideservice.com/ (607)-349-1750
  2. What didn't impress you about the helix? Justin Okrepki NYSDEC licensed guide #7324 http://www.otiscolakeguideservice.com/ (607)-349-1750
  3. Ditto on the helix! Justin Okrepki NYSDEC licensed guide #7324 http://www.otiscolakeguideservice.com/ (607)-349-1750
  4. I'm glad you went that route and that I could help! Justin Okrepki NYSDEC licensed guide #7324 http://www.otiscolakeguideservice.com/ (607)-349-1750
  5. I have LED strips under the gunwale for deck lighting, but I don't really use it for fishing. Here is a pic of my mast light. Kinda hard to see them on top of the mast and under my otters. They light up my whole spread and the rear deck. I net using them trolling. Casting at night I'm blacked out except an anchor light.
  6. I have mast led mast lights that work awesome. I bought the mast caps from GLP and added LEDs on them, they regular lights originally. I might have a pic somewhere I can post, but the boat isnt stored here Justin Okrepki NYSDEC licensed guide #7324 http://www.otiscolakeguideservice.com/ (607)-349-1750
  7. I run them every day all summer and love them. I run 4 a side routinely with deep divers and clip weights and I can get them so far away from the boat you can't hardly see them when I'm the only boat around. I run every line at a different depth with the shallower lures on the outside and deeper on the inside. Longer on the outside as well. You can check any line and put it back in your spread without touching the other rods. If you really want to see how to use them take a charter and you will learn a ton. I've added dot reflective tape to mine and during lowlight or dark they are super easy to see with my led mast lights. I do use big boards as well but prefer the churchs' walleye boards on walleye.

  8. Personally I wouldn't pay half that for that motor...4 stroke is the play for sure and you should find one for similar money Justin Okrepki NYSDEC licensed guide #7324 http://www.otiscolakeguideservice.com/ (607)-349-1750
  9. The ultrex will push your boat 2 mph very easily unless you are into much wind. I use both motors simultaneously alot as well. The 24 volt will also work fine. I used a 24v terrova for 5 years before I upgraded to the 36v. The auto pilot is awesome and I think you would get good use of the spot lock gps anchor as well. My boat is a bit too big and catches too much wind for the spot lock to work well for me unless it's fairly calm, but it will be great on your boat. Good luck and let us know how you make out!

  10. Welcome aboard! You might want to consider a trolling motor that you can troll with as well as cast from the front. Might make it possible to skip the kicker. I use a 36v terrova to troll and I know many other guys doing the same. Also gives you auto pilot. The new ultrex is a fortrex but has the I pilot link. If you ever make it to Otisco I'd be happy to help you out. I live on the susky as well. Justin Okrepki NYSDEC licensed guide #7324 http://www.otiscolakeguideservice.com/ (607)-349-1750
  11. If you lose a knob or clicker just call parts n service for your brand and they will send you a couple for free. Okuma is very easy to deal with on parts Justin Okrepki NYSDEC licensed guide #7324 http://www.otiscolakeguideservice.com/ (607)-349-1750
  12. Common sense...Bit more rare than sixth sense, but catches plenty! Justin Okrepki NYSDEC licensed guide #7324 http://www.otiscolakeguideservice.com/ (607)-349-1750
  13. Didn't realize you posted your TM and didn't recognize your handle so when I read the post I thought my son has the same TM for sale. Then I looked at the pic and for a second thought geez this guy has the exact same boat as my son! This trolling motor has new cables and pulleys and the "cool foot" pedal.

  14. If you are looking for additional fishing other than your charter along your travel corridor you drive right by Otisco lake, as it's only 9 miles from the exit. There is good shore fishing opportunities for tiger musky in daytime and walleye at night that exact time of year. I'd be happy to get you started in the right direction for doing it yourself from shore or take you if that's an option. Feel free to pm me with any questions. Also as mentioned above the captain you booked with should be able to point you to something as far as decent shore fishing.

  15. Didn't seem like the place would be easy on anything! Just add ice... Justin Okrepki NYSDEC licensed guide #7324 http://www.otiscolakeguideservice.com/ (607)-349-1750
