    lowrance HDS 5 GEN 2

    Im concerned that without the 50khz deep water may be a problem. Ive read some post were people suggest not to buy a FF without it. Whats your opinion? Can you pick up thermocline with other frequencies?

    lowrance HDS 5 GEN 2

    Hello All, Anyone out there run this fish finder without the structure scan option? I really like the capalities of this FF however not sure if i can justify the cost of the structure scan. What im looking for is a FF with chartplotting that has 50khz for a cost around $700.00 tops. I would consider a fishfinder without the chartplotting but the 50khz is a must. (i think). Thanks

    Salmon fishing for beginners "HELP"

    This is great guys I'm loving this site. The info everyone has provided is awesome. Tom's comments on load distribution has me a little concerned now. My boat is a Sea Fox 204CF the only way i can mount equipment and secure it with backing plates would require me to drill large holes to access under the gunnel walls as my walls are totally enclosed. With that being said i was looking to mount all my equipment using gimbals. My boat has four factory supplied rod holders. Im thinking of using the back two for the riggers and the two closer to the front for dipsy's. What your opinion? Thanks everyone.

    Pete, Would you recommend using 2 dipsy rods vs stacking the down riggers?

    Salmon fishing for beginners "HELP"

    Thanks for the response Pete, I like the idea of going out on a charter i'm sure lots of knowledge would be gained from it. I think i'll even take a GPS with me to record our travels. I guess the best way to put it is, If you had to chose one set up that consisted of four rods and one spread that you had to commit to, What would it be? This is fun Thanks again, Pescado
  14. Hello All, I have been fishing for 30 years and love it, the last 15 years i have been chasing muskie around the Kawartha's and Georgian Bay. The driving to these locations all though beautiful have become challenging and costly. Considering i live in Toronto 5min away from Lake Ontario one of the best Salmon fisheries around it only makes sense to begin a more serious approach to Salmon fishing. I bought a new boat and now have the pleasure of outfitting it with all the equipment necessary for salmon fishing. My question to you fellow anglers is, how should i get started? i have read lots of material on equipment and techniques for salmon fishing but i would love to hear from the guys that actually fish these waters. I will be installing two down riggers and using up to four rods to start. Keep in mind i am a beginner, i would like to know with only four rods available what kind of set up would be best. I will be fishing out of Bluffer's and once i gain knowledge and experience i will most certainly contribute back to fellow fisherman, for now "HELP" 1.What size reel should i be looking at? How much line should it hold? Should i buy four of the same? Should they have line counters? 2.What type of rods? again should they be all the same? 3.What type of line? Should i have a mix of mono,lead core,braided? 4.What would be a good selection of lures to begin with? 5.What speed should i be trolling at? I know this changes due to conditions but just a starting point will help. 6.What size of cannon balls? 7.Any info pertaining to fishing Bluffer's is welcome 8.Where's the fish? (just kidding) WOW, Who ever answers all of this totally deserve's at the very least a Double Double from Tim's Pescado Out!

    Gimbals

    Hey G-Daddy, Thanks for the reply it is reassuring to know that gimbals are actually being used in Lake Ontario. My Seafox walls are totally inclosed so i can't see if the manufacturer supplied rod holders will be up to the task, unless i was to drill a hole in the boat to see whats going on in there. since i am new to the world of salmon fishing i have lots of questions like, size of reel, how much line should it hold,what kind of line, what type of rod short or long, what lures should one start with. size of cannon ball, oh ya and of course where's the fish. lol. Pescado out!
