  1. I was in Cabelas last week and saw these for the first time. Opti-Tackle torpedo planer boards with tattle flags. They were $29.99 each. Anyone use these with success? I see Marine General has them for $19.99. Thanks for any info. I did a quick search to see if anyone was talking about them and didn’t see any posts.

    Cannon 4 inch swivel base mounting

    You might need a piece of 6” track if they are track-mounted swivel bases. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    What size Cowbells?

    X3 on the Hammerhead 5/0. Even with their large size they have less drag (pull less) than old school cowbells and lake trolls. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Traxstech/Berts Net holders

    I have 2 Traxstech I bought used on EBay for about $25 each. They don’t come up very often at that price. I use them every trip. Sometimes I keep the net in underway, and sometimes I don’t, but they always double as an extra rod holder for storage. If I were buying new, I would buy Cisco. I have mostly Cisco rod holders on my boats - blue and black. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Washing hands and lures

    Growing up I always heard WD-40 contains fish oil. Supposedly, that’s an urban myth. It’s mainly hexane (or naphtha in Europe), mineral oil, carbon dioxide (propellant), and inert ingredients. We will never know the exact recipe.....but the fish seem to like it. I sometimes dip my lures in crayfish oil (sold by trapping companies). I’m not convinced it helps either way, however.

    Name this lure

    PAP, I think these are old Cabela’s walleye runners / deep divers made by the Bill Norman lure company. I don’t think they sell them anymore. You can still find a few on eBay. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Track questions

    I've purchased spade-type thumb screws from McMaster-Carr in the past for rod holder projects. Here is their page for all the thumb screws. The spade-type are cheaper than the rest.....unless you need a larger knob for turning. https://www.mcmaster.com/#thumb-screw-fasteners/=1bzxh34

    line for rigger rods

    To get used to levelwind reels, you could add a couple smaller left handed size 20 (Okuma) or 27 in other brands for your rigger set-ups. I think switching from left hand spinning to RH levelwind is the biggest hang-up for most people. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
