  2. Capt John king, Michigan tackle, best system I have found Sent from my VS990 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. I just completed a project on my old boat by replacing all my old rod holders and swivel based on my down riggers. I settled on a Cisco track system for three reasons. 1 customer service. These were the only folks that bothered to return a phone call or email. 2. The folks at Cisco were genuinely interested in what I was doing, called me and asked me questions and offered many suggestions. 3. Value! I,was given the opportunity to compare product quality andprice. The Cisco products, IMO, by far was a better value. Material, workmanship, and usefulness Surpassed anything else I was able to get my hands on, and at a comparable price. Check them out on their website, don't be afraid to give them a call, ask for Mr Dave Logan. Hope this helps, tight lines
  4. I guess I am sorry I started this topic, I am a little embarrassed I think I will just give these things to some one I don't like,
  5. Thanks for all the help! Maybe sometime in the last 40 years or so of running planer boards I have forgotten something, old age setting in I guess, I will keep working on this problem. As far as as my otter boats go, they were set up as,per Rick Hijecki's measurements, I will check them again, thanks Sent from my VS990 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. My intentions were to run three boards off each side of the boat, one dipsey, one down rigger line. At least that was,my thought Sent from my VS990 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Been running otter boards with double keels for some time, they work very well with 1 copper, multiple lines out you get a great big bow in the tow line, then nothing works right Sent from my VS990 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. I have left for the weeks work, quill get the pictures you request as some as I can get the boat back in Cayuga 'll. Boards won't plane out to the side, drag off rear corner of boat, 10 colors of lead core, 50 lb power pro braid backing Sent from my VS990 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. TX 44s won't run OK guys, I am in trouble again! I purchased 6 TX44 planer boards and 6 replacement stainless pins. These were intended for multiple copper/leadcore rigs. I read and reread all the information I could find on these. Went to bloodrun's site , read and reread their suggestions for modifications for use with copper and leadcores. Set my rigs up with the proper braided backing, proper placement of rod holders on the boat. Bottom line I can't get these damned things to work! They just want to drag along behind the boat. I've nearly ruined one of these things moving the clip/release(witch I think is junk), forward back, up, down! I'm pissed, you got the idea! Could anybody give me any help? Thanks!!!!!!!!!
  10. Nice outfit pole setter! By the way, sorry for,posting,this topic twice Sent from my VS990 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. I started a project on the old boat a short while back. I was tired of the mixed matched, hodge- podge mess of rod holders and assorted other crap I had on that boat, so I decided that I wanted to invest in a track system. I spent a lot of time researching and reading everything I could get my hands on. I called and e-mailed each of the following manufactures with a number of questions, Cannon, Berts, Traxtech, and Cisco. Two of the companies never responded at all, one invited me to some sort of chat room or on-line question and answer session. Only one company bothered to return a phone call, that was Cisco Fishing systems. With that being said, please keep in mind I am an old guy and I am old school. I don't mind spending money on things on things I want, I just want to understand what I am buying and be sure it is right for me. Mr. David Logan, from Cisco Fishing Systems, returned my call very promptly and asked help in any way he could. After a lenghthy conversation, I told Mr. Logan, that I would like to do a little more research and get back to him. After a couple days I called back, he was very glad to hear from me and remembered right away. Mr. Logan was very eager to help me with a few new questions, so I decided to place a order. I ordered two 60 inch tracks, 2 custom built down rigger risers, I told him I thought I would go with a competitors rod holders, after a short chat, he offered to send me one of his rod holders, just to see if I liked it. In four days I had my order. I was very impressed with everything, including the rod holder. But what impressed me the most was the very personal and professional service that received. To date tracks are installed with the new downrigger risers and eight new rod holders. Phase one complete! Phase two= new electric planer mast on order! Everything from these folks is absolutely top notch! Every thing is machined and milled from solid material, no welding. A Big, Big Thanks to Mr. Dave Logan and all the folks at Cisco Fishing Systems.

  13. Pap, they also make tablet holders, I have one in my tractor trailer. Very sturdy, it's got about 300,000 miles on it, if I remember right it was about 60 dollars and very adjustable. Its going to be smart troll for me. Rick didn't mention where his article was going to be published, I am anxious to read it. Sent from my VS990 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
