  1. Murray We catch more fish with less rods, 5 seems to be my ability to manage. When a Big King is on Oh Boy that's a lot of work Clearing lines, not to mention the tangles that can come too, this takes a 1/2 hour to get re rigged and set again. Been there done that. High 5 Len
  2. Hi Murray. We use a 19 braid Torpedo wire on the starboard dipsey diver rod with glass eyes its 10 years old. With usually 245 to 275 feet out or so on a # 2 setting. The rod really bends when under power. Then just set the clutch to stop clicking line out, your locked in ready at about 80 feet down . If the trigger snap pops on the diver, the line comes up on the angle towards the surface. Once you get the hang of it, they produce fish. And Big ones. They set back way off to the side, out of the way so the spin doctors can rotate. We set 2 down riggers first. When marking fish, then put out the port side dipsey with a 7 braid with a flasher spoon or fly . Our go to last line is grandpas old lead core.it is dead centre out the back all 10 colours that is 300 feet plus 20 more feet of a fluorocarbon suffix . Put on a made in Peterborough Ontario Lucky strike spoon, and get into the 30 foot range for some awesome Rainbow action. This nets fish everyday. Darn I better go to work now. There may be a few sick days coming soon. Prepare for tomorrow. Len
  3. Murray. Whitby is west of us in Cobourg. Our Sea ray boat sat all summer under the Blue Covid mask. One buddy says lets go last Saturday. Boat was a lot of work to get setup, for one day out. We were on the dock for 5 a.m. I had my 5 usual rod setup, 2 wires with dipsey and spin doctors, 1 was meat rhe other a green fly. 2 downriggers set with spoon, and a flasher fly combo. Lead core out down the centre chute. We put in at 75 f o w and trolled. I was blind to the popular baits or the hot spoons, Anyway we got totally drenched by an early morning down pour. Not much on the finder so we hunted for fish. by about 8:00 I had changed gear quite a bit. finally a rigger popped with a crush glow 1/2 blue green flasher and blue fly. Normally I set the hook and hand the rods over. Well he battled a good one, but Jim was a little over excited and Now you know The rest of the Story. Sun come up after a bit. Went out to 275. 0 for 2 . Going to get back in September. Last year a young lad turned 15 and we both managed a double header at about 8:15 pm 2 x mid 20s with long lines and High a 5 too. That's Fishing.
  4. We want to try using the cowbells. I will buy all . If you will send to Ontario Canada I will pay extra for duty and shipping. Maybe a few tips on setups to help too? The big kings are staging and running up rivers along the North now. Still nice weather for fishing the big O. Thanks LBT1
  5. Fish Bob Our boat runs out of Cobourg. Last week we were in fairly tight 80 to 100 FOW. Tool this beauty 28.8 on a dipsey with snubber We use 2 rods with Dipsey s and learned from losing tackle, How important the snubber is. Braid from the rod down to the dipsey is a must. The snubber right behind dipsey then to rigs. Helps soften the bite when a Big fish grabs on . We have got way more fish using a snubber. You tear the jaw out of the fish without them . Leaves them with a tooth ache. We pulled a 28.8oz King on that set up. Send a pic too you.
  6. Further east out of Cobourg, we usually go some 4/5 days with 2 down riggers, 2 dipsey,s and 1 long chute lead core. Yesterday we lost a Great spoon .A dream weaver called a Blue Whale. No hits on our wire with twinkies and meat?? Water meion always produces. Question is, What does your first line up start with? We have some large spin doctors with crush glow and some glow spoons moon shine too. Like your videos and posts. Keep the tips Up !
  7. I like some of these , will you sell to the north in Ontario if I pay extra?? We lost a good spoon yesterday Len
  8. it was 10.0 and a Tasty one. And chrome as could be.
  9. That's a Beauty of a morning . We are on the north shore Cobourg / Port hope. We lost a Biggie on a Dream weaver Blue Whale spoon yesterday. If anyone catches it Please Enjoy.
  10. Jessie my future son in law Hauls in a 27.0 mature King. He misses his father greatly . Keith Densmore rest in peace. Rainbows By Keith.Nicole pulls her first 20.6 Beauty King !
  11. That is a bad day my friend. Our New Pump 1 has these rescue 42 stabilizer kit. Work very well for this type of situation. Hopefully no one was hurt. Looks like Regal sat on the Rams Horns for a 3 count and won. Better days ahead buddy.
  12. Hey there Greg. Welcome aboard. We had some huge east winds blow for the past week now. Our boat went out of Cobourg when the winds dropped on Sunday. We put down the sub troll temp probe and in 150 feet of water, down at 100 feet of downrigger we had Temp reading of 65. That's a lot of warm water down there. We were thinking of going out to 250 to 300 and try to get mid 50 temps. We trolled at 150 depth and had no action. Let things calm down and going this weekend. Fish On
  13. hairybumcrack. Those are words of wisdom. Always check the local Buoy weather reports before going. Its a free service and saves a wasted car ride. We like to go out with a 10 km or less wind and maybe a 1/2 metre wave. A slight ripple seems better than perfectly flat for us, but to hear those rigger cables humming is nice.
  14. D giroux. Well that's a tough day. when fish are not in the boat.. Our family enjoys fishing too. We go out at Cobourg usually at 6am and mark fish on the finder. Then sometimes we go an hour or 2 before things start to happen. I m captain DAD and try all sorts of rigs ,flies and spoons. We use 5 rods and it is a bit of work. Finally a rod pops Yahoo and the fun starts..Our 2 trips so far have produced. 1 day 2 bows and a 15 pound king for Garnett. The 2nd trip was about the same Mackenzie got 2 bows and lost a big one. Her friend Rob pulling in a 15 pound king. It is hard when they are on the screen and not biting. Keep changing stuff and change your speeds and direction. Down under has some strange currents. The top boat speed is Not What your Baits are moving for sure. We use a sub troll 900. Temp and ball speed at 2.5 up to 3. we are going this Saturday or Sunday. Best of Luck and Keep your lines tight. Go catch them.
  15. The chrome sharks are the best for tracking so we have learned, They also sink really fast to the bottom. I donated one 12 lber to the lake when my rigger clutch free spooled when it was just hanging off the boom. Darn hate those days,
  16. yep we have been getting some big kings. Last week of august we were 4/4, took 70 + pounds 2 kings 1x 29.5 and 1 x 24.7,2 rainbows 1x 10 lb and 1x12 lb .trolled in shallow first then moved out to 250 FOW. The bows were actually down 80 to 90 ft quite deep but awesome fishing. We went back out on Sunday and got 1/4 a beautiful 24 lb newbie on board let a few go to get bigger. Go get em.
  17. 2 copper rods and reels ? Still 4 sale ? Thanx Len
  18. I would like to try using copper, contact me 705 639 1896 ask for Len thanks.
  19. I agree When the tip pops ,Crank, Crank, Crank, Then when you feel the fish set it. One must master the art of a Downrigger. Many a Great Fish have been lost because of the Bowline slack release. Speaking from Experience myself..
  20. Your choice of rods is very similar to our set up. We run 1 Dipsey rod out on port side and one dipsey out starboard, then we have 2 down riggers with 2 rods . One down rigger runs Moore temp and speed torpedo with a Flasher and spoons with one slider on top. A clean set up without all the rods. Last weekend on Sunday, We had Fish on all morning with a Big double header at 10:10 am at 195 foot of water down 95. Also We put Grand pas old Lucky favorite Lead core out the middle and let all 10 colours go with 20 feet of mono 50 lb. We run 5 rods and 2 with sliders = 7 .One fish peeled over 450 feet off on the port side Dipsey rod WEEEEE. Hold ON
