  1. Nice deal Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Sounds good Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. Ok, that's good, just trying to go through the list of potential issues. I have a larger Lowrance GPS/ fishfinder combo unit and I run a smaller cheap Eagle fish finder for passengers to look at. My Eagle was acting up in a similar way as yours....starts out fine, then freaks out in deeper water. Was working fine in years past. I determined that the transducer was bad. Maybe try another transducer - if you have access to one. And also the power test direct to a battery.
  4. Is your transducer next to another one on a mounting plate? Sometime interference can cause issues. I had this happen to me last summer. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. I would say anywhere between $250 and $400. Depends what the seller thinks it's worth and what you are willing to pay. Looks like a great little motor! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. Excellent news! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. I heard about some kind of spill in that area. Don't know the details. The perch are usually spawning this time of year around the harbors. Lots of jumbos being caught around deep docks by where I live (northern Lake Huron). Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Rapala has a 20% off sale on their original floating lures (F3 through F18). The sale on their website goes until Sunday. www.rapala.com Shipping is free after $129. Just thought I'd let you know. Only a good deal if you buy a lot of lures or can spend over $129 for the free shipping. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. When I was young my Dad would take us Lake Trout trolling in northwestern Ontario. We would use open face reels and meter our clear mono line with black or red permanent marker. I can remember taking one end of the line and pulling it across the back yard. We had a 100ft tape. I don't remember the distance of our metering marks, but the method worked great on the water. It wasn't a permanent fix, but would last the three days of fishing. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. Prayers for life and longevity. A good reminder of the importance of family when enjoying our favorite hobbies. I need to take my Dad out fishing more this summer.
  11. Thanks PAP, they weren't the only store that didn't know what I was talking about. I always tell myself that if I worked a job like that I would try to do a little research into what I was selling and what other products are out there. The attitude, however, that I am sometimes met with is that 'I will sit back and wait to see what corporate sends us.' Hence all the more reason to shop at your local bait shop or company-direct. I am a collector, I buy way more lures than I need - my wife thinks I need a lure-addiction support group. I walk into those stores excited, researched-up, and ready to buy. I wish that same excitement was reciprocated. Is that too much to ask? Maybe. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. I've had the most success with running a marine starting battery (NAPA brand) and buying as many cold cranking amps as I could find - for my motor and accessories. I run my electric trolling motor and downriggers off of deep cycle batteries and wire a permanent marine trickle charger to them at night. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Green Glow Frog long shallow was hot for me last summer for inland lake walleye (in Michigan). Out performed everything else I was using, at least for August fishing. haven't tried Bay Rats for browns yet, but am looking forward to it. Too many options and too many colors! I have all long shallows so far - gobie, glow frog, orange, black. Their quality is worth the $. I ordered direct from Bay Rat. Walmart.com sells them now. I went to a Cabelas and the fishing guy didn't know what I was talking about. Grrr. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. I use Seaguar red label and Viscous. 12 pound. A little heavy perhaps, but I use the same set up for multiple species (except Kings). Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. for sale : usa

    Thanks for the heads-up. I've been wanting to try them. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
