  1. I run 60 lb power pro on my braid set ups. Tied directly to the diver then fluro back to my presentations Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Fishing with divers in my experience is far from scientific anyway. There are a ton of variables that effect your depth. That said I know on my boat my divers out fish my downriggers hands down. If I was given a choice and could only use 1 or the other the diver would be what I would pick. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. 3 ft of line out to 1 foot down. Not scientific but gets you in the ball park. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. A mono dipsy out 2 or 300 ft you will never trip the dipsy to get it it in. You will have to real in the weight of the dipsy. And they create a ton of resistance at that depth. You will swear you are bringing a whale in. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. People will give you info. When people say they are marking fish at x depths and have x amount of line out you can duplicate what they are doing. Most of the time people are fishing with wire but useing and duplicating what they are doing with braid will get you alot closers to the fishes than you will with mono. And yes you can pop the dipsy useing a setting the hook motion but you won't be able to do that with mono if you are fishing at any real depth. If you want to find out what depth your braid diver is running troll in a certain depth of water and let out line until late your diver strikes bottom. Then you can figure out how much line you had out for what you are seeing on your radar and you will be able to make your own chart. I have noticed that a 3 to 1 ratio works with a size 1 dipsy set from 0 to 1 pretty close and after that 2 and 3 settings are 5 to 1. Also you are losing alot of depth capabilities because of the stretch in the mono. It will belly out. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Hey moon fish regarding the mono on your dipsy lines the charts that come with the dipsy divers are not that accurate in my experience. I to am not a charter Captain and fish on a budget but there is a lot of knowledge on this sight that will help you get your lures to the desired depth useing braid or wire. You are setting yourself up for failure useing mono on a dipsy and I say this by doing it. Mono has way to much stretch which you will find out very first time you have to reel in a fish with the diver not tripped. Also the charts read for speeds of 3 MPH way to fast for trout in the finger lakes. I fish with both wire and braid dipsy but did try fishing with mono when I first started. You are going to be frustrated right of the bat. Take people's advice most of it comes from people realizing that something didn't work. Good luck to you. I would switch over to braid if I were you.

  7. Hey thanks for the input I'll have to give them a try next time I catch one. I've also heard pickerel are good eating too. Just reel boney. I've caught many of them in the small lakes and ponds near where I live but never tried eating them. Thanks for the insight. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Do you eat the pike just wondering heard they were good eating just reel boney. Watched some videos on removing the Y bones but have never tried to eat them my self Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. If you like your 870 pump you will love a 760. Same gun same stock same basic feel only have the option of long distance shots if they are presented. I shoot the carbine version with 18 inch barrel I have a 3 x 9 scope with 50 mm objective to give me as big a sight picture as possible. However used to use a peep sight but noticed many times I wanted to get a better look at a deer and changed over to a scope. At close range shooting with a scope peep or iron sights is all snap shooting anyway so not sure that makes a difference. Alot of practice with what ever you decide and you can become very proficient with running shots. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. I do understand stand the I just always wanted one. But not sure you will be happy with the remington platform. I'm sure the newer ones are more reliable however for basically the same gun I would go with the pump over there semi. They look and carry almost identical.

  11. Again like a said before running shots on a deer are a common place with my hunting style. Go with the pump will be much happier than having a single shot semi auto. I say this from experience. Nothing worse than spending all day tracking to jump a buck and miss with your first shot and not have a speedy second because the gun jammed. Also 243 is awful light round for deer that your shot is anything less than perfect. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Remington 742 and 7400 series guns are nick named the jam o magic for reason. They jam and jam frequently. I'm not sure your reasoning behind wanting a semi but if it is for quick follow up shots may I suggest to you the 760 or 7600. Pump rifle are just as reliable as bolt actions and when useing the action the pumping motion brings the gun back down on your target for a fast follow up shot. The most favorable gun to all trackers and big woods hunters is a pump. I have both a 742 and a 760 in the carbine version and would take the 760 over the 742 any day. Just food for thought. If you take your semi and your pump and do aimed follow up shots I bet you won't see a difference in speed. Just my opinion been hunting the big woods of the Adirondack s and do absolutely no stand hunting where i hunt now for most of my life and have had very few times where my 760 let me down. Can't say the same about the 742. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Also most hemlock stands traditionally are old growth in this area. They are also generally found in swampy areas. These areas often times have a little of mosses that are nutritious for the animals. Ferns also will remain green under the snow and deer will migrate to these areas to paw for these foods. The benefit is 2 fold. The hemlock s shelter them and reduce the amount of snow making it easier for them to paw for food. However if the winter becomes hard enough that the deer are eating only hemlock browse because they can't reach anything else chances are the deer heard is going to suffer some losses Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. They migrate to these areas for protection from the elements less snow less wind. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Hemlock is horrible for deer to eat. It only fills the void or makes them not be hungry . I used to do field work for the state up in wanakena for deer density and winter kill and numerous times found deer that had starved to death with stomachs full of hemlock needles. While tipping one over for increased cover is a good thought it actually isn't helping them food wise. Find a crooked red maple or better known as soft maple and tip that over next to the hemlock tree. Then you have given them shelter and good browse with nutrients that will help them threw the winter. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
