  1. Buzzards Bay 64 lb striper If anyone's going to be fishing the Cape, June is a great month to fish striper off Provincetown. Most guys are drifting and live-lining mackerel but we found trolling them with leadcore was more productive (and less stressful) as the bait needs to be able to swim while you troll, they swim faster than the speed you're trolling and all the hookups were with the tail hook. We lost more than we caught until we figured that out. Our biggest was 44lbs last year but one of these days, that 50's going to hit the deck! http://www.onthewater.com/64-pound-cape-cod-striper-story-photos/

    Garmin Panoptix

    Apologies for reviving this old post but I just pulled the trigger on a Garmin echoMap 94sv and I'm thinking the panoptix transducer might be worth the dough? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cthw7ifTxgg

    great lakes planers

    I love my GLP Rocket Launcher and the owner Tony is the nicest and most honest guy I've ever dealt with.

    tandmbait, Mine's a 2012 too but I bought it as a left over in 2013. The agreement of sale states, "Converible Top with Boot and Front Curtain and Walk Through Curtain...$940.00. They're calling the bimini a convertible I think because the only boot I have is for the bimini. The gunwales are 11" wide with rod lockers that I find too small for the bigger rods I use, so I converted them to tackle boxes and wired them with led strip lights for the glow stuff. And they're the perfect width for 8" flashers so I borrowed (stole) an idea from those flasher boxes and now one locker holds about 50-8" and half a dozen 11"'ers. The other locker holds about 75 spoons, 8 magnum dipsy's and 36 stickbaits. So between the RL and the converted rod lockers, I've eliminated several tackle boxes and rods cluttering up the deck. Those lockers also prevented me from mounting a track system and really screwed up my rigger locations hence, the boards up the sides of the gunwales.

    Daiwa Great Lakes 47lc Drag washers

    Dawn at Smooth Drag has them I believe. She's a wonderful person to deal with and I'm sure she'd answer any questions you might have...shoot her an e-mail. http://smoothdrag.com/price.html

    It's only an 18 footer pap but the width does make it pretty stable for a small boat.

    Charging Glow lures?

    I read an article a while back (can't find it now) but the author claimed he had more hits after the glow charge had worn down quite a bit. I haven't fished enough glow to confirm this but it might be something worth noting?

    For what it's worth, here's a few posts by Dukdog explaining how he made his...and a great job he did too. http://www.lakeontariounited.com/fishing-hunting/topic/42119-helping-my-little-boat-fish-big/ http://www.lakeontariounited.com/fishing-hunting/topic/43054-update-to-making-my-little-boat-fish-big/ http://www.lakeontariounited.com/fishing-hunting/topic/43289-little-boat-fishing-big/ I bought a Great Lakes Planer Rocket Launcher and the verticle masts are exactly 7' apart. That was enough room for 8 tubes, 8" apart. I have an 8 1/2' beam so I had room for 8 of them. Here's a pic of mine.
  10. Les...he's had a great first season which started June 23rd off Provincetown. Jigging up mackerel with Sabiki rigs and then live lining them. He had more success trolling with leadcore than live lining though. Then when P-town died down, Chatham was hot for a few weeks jigging A27 diamond jigs with flo green teasers (thin ones). He did make a trip to Monomoy but admitted that he needs to go with someone who knows it. Now he's into the Bay with eels using 30 lb PP, 40 lb floro leader, a short shanked octopus hook and an eel. He's still out there now as I type with 10 in the box including that 44 lb'er. If he can get 5 more he'll limit out for the first time but he just texted saying he hasn't had a hit in a couple of hours. 11 13 14 Well he just texted and said he caught his 15th fish, a first for him limiting out. Good Luck henrybud...the bites right in your backyard now and should be there for a bit.
  11. My son caught this 44 lb'er last night at Scorton's Ledge. He launches in the canal and it's only a couple of hundred yards to Cape Cod Bay. He waits until he sees them on the FF before he shuts off the engine and casts live eels, which immediately swim to the bottom. It's a night bite/early morning bite right now however. I don't know how I let him talk me into getting his commercial license but i did and now he's part of the fleet.

    Seneca eel

    Last week I tipped a bucket full of them over in my new truck. Five dozen eels under the seats, carpet liners...everywhere. I must have got them all cause no fish smell the next day.

    Lowrance Rant

    A few years ago I bought a 500 series Humminbird to use as a portable unit on a rented boat. It was about $600 at the time and the only complaint I have is that it didn't come with a manual. It sure would be nice to have a manual with you on the boat to shorten that learning curve.
