  1. 4 stroke kickers winterizing

    I have 2015 Merc 15hp Big Foot. For the winter storage I change the oil and gear lube. Take it off the boat, mount it onto my stand and put it in my heated garage. The only part that sucks is it weighs 138lbs and its a bich to lift it on and off the transom by myself. Haven't had any problems in the spring when I go to use it. Boat Safe Egoody
  2. Great boards and at a good price. I have a set of these and can vouch that they will work great for whomever adds them to their arsenal of trolling gear. Boat Safe Egoody
  3. How to use clip (DR noob)

    I agree with the use of Chamberlains and have had good luck with them...I have roemers and ended up clamping rubber bands in the jaws with a half hitch to the fish line, instead of trying to remember how to thread the line through them. I've had the same issue that someone above mentioned above about the continued use making flat spots on the rigger cable with the Chamberlains also. Boat Safe Egoody
  4. Go to the Cisco web site, they have Sport Track brackets especially designed to mount down riggers. If you don't see what you need or have any questions, give them a call. They are very helpful. I use the Cisco rod holders and sport track mounts on my Lund 1800 Sport Angler. Boat Safe Egoody
  5. Share your rookie stories!!

    This Happened to me, or better yet this is how I learned a valuable lesson. I was trolling on Lake Champlain when I got too close to the reef in Farm Town Bay, when my rigger ball got hung up. I tried to back up to get on the other side of it trying to get it loose, but the wind was blowing and I was losing ground. So instead of chancing having my 10STX ripped off, I cut the rigger cable. I could have continued fishing, but figured I'd get off the water and head up to Dutillios, (sorry for spelling) to buy another cable, 10lb ball and termination kit. Now back on the water, my partner and I, After installing one of the sleeves that came with the new 300 ft cable and crimping it, we hand wound the cable onto the rigger. Now I wanted to make sure it was wound tight on the rigger reel. How could I do that? Well I had a great idea, I'd go out to 300FOW let the cable out to 280 ft with the new ball i just bought and just wind it back up. Well, at about 275 feet out I looked at the rigger reel and all of a sudden, the single crimp i had put on must have let loose and there goes my new cable, ball and termination kit. Talk about being Pssd off!! Lesson learned, ALWAYS use both sleeves and crimp each one at 90 degrees from each other that are included with the new cable, That's what I did with the next one I bought and as an added level of confidence, I tied a knot in the end of the cable just incase the crimped sleeves ever let loose.

  6. Hi, I have (2) 13lb Yeck pancake weights I'll sell for 40.00 each plus shipping. They have only been uses twice so they are like new. I bought sharks to replace them. I will say pancakes don't work well in Lake O because of the water currents. Not trying to talk you out of them, but the shark shaped ones really work the better. There are a couple of guys on this site that make them, Bikinibottom is the one I have bought them from. Let me know if you are interested in the pancakes. Boat Safe, Egoody
  7. Not sure if this is what your looking for, but from your description, try the Cisco Web Site. I have these on my Lund and they are top of the line. Boat Safe, Egoody
  8. Thank You ALL for the info... Boat Safe Egoody
  9. Thanks LC, You say stay inside the buoys?....Are both sides of the channel to the lake marked? Egoody
  10. Hi, I'm coming up to Henderson Hbr May 23 for 5 days for the first time. No idea what the harbor fishing will be then, but if I wanted to launch out of the Stoney Creek launch instead of the one in Hbr, I have a couple of questions. I'm looking at the NOAA map and it shows shallow water and grass at 1ft depth and a little further closer to the lake, rocks at 3ft depth just before you get to the main lake. Im running a 1800 Sport Angler (Lund) with the 150Hp Merc 4 stroke. Will I have trouble getting into the main lake from this launch? I was thinking that the Stoney Creek Launch would easier than going across Henderson Hbr, Trying to determine the best path to take to get past the shoal by Gull Island and then motoring down around Stoney Point. This may all be a mute point in a few weeks when I arrive, as I may have good luck without going down to the Stoney Creek area. Just looking to be prepared before I arrive.

  11. Terminal tackle

    When i get to the fishdoctorcharter web site i have to use the flash video option to view any of the videos, I tried to use the other choices and nothing else worked for me. I just thought is was something in the way my computer is set up. Sorry if i gave anyone any false directions, but this site has some very good info if you can get to it. Boat Safe Egoody
  12. Terminal tackle

    Here is an alternative to store bought cable termination kits. Take a look at the Wire Line Knot Video here. It has worked for me for me for several years, without failure. There is a lot of other great info here also. Boat Safe, Egoody
  13. Fluorocarbon leaders

    25 ft length of 10# P-Line flouro tied to 30# braid with an albright knot works for me. Boat Safe Egoody
  14. Spring advice on Eastern End

    I see by the replies that early May is considered the prime time. We have a trip from NH to Henderson Harbor the 3rd week in May. What are our chances for finding Eyes and Browns during our trip? Are there areas we should be concentrating on? Thanks in advance for any advice you can share. Thanks and Boat Safe, Egoody Fittzwilliam, NH
