  1. I would start off with a 3-4 rod set until you confident and running that with no issues. More rods is not always better. Big rod sets on trailerable boats can be difficult on certain days for even for experienced fisherman. Start off small And work your way up to more lines. Make sure your set on a good troll with the current and switch your program until one rod is producing and go from therw Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  3. Hey guys I’m throwing a new transom in my 87’ islander 220v(O/B)to get it ready for sale. I’m slightly into it and have a mental picture of the rest of the project but was wondering if anyone had any unseen problems they could fill me in on any pictures. I have seen a few things on the I/O Islanders but can’t seem to find anything on mine... thanks - jon
  4. Tried that lol, think I may just have a bad cable or something. Has worked great with no issues till I finally get to after kings for the first time this year! Figures lol thanks for input Sent from my SM-G928V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Hey guys currently on the water, my sub troll will turn on but it will not show anything. Had it happen yesterday and installed new battery in probe. All wires are connected and in tact. Can't figure out what the issue is. Somebody please help me! Sent from my SM-G928V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. If you are referring to disk divers I would not risk it. You may be able to get away with running the small ones but bigger Dipsy's put a ton of tension on yojr rods especially in rough water. It will be well worth the money to install a set of good rod holders for them, they don't have to be top of the line but make sure they are well made. I would avoid plastic rod holders or the tite-locks. Good Luck!
  7. Is this going to be a pretty good sized event? Thinking about making the drive....
  8. Hey guys, what are your go to Rigger and Dipsy rods. I am currently running Okuma Classic Pro GLTs for Ontario riggers and PowerPlus rods on the fingerlakes. Dipsy rods are Diawa Accudepth 10'6. Love the action of the accudepths but durability has been an issue! I
  9. Spin-n-glo behind cowbell is pretty devastating on those slimy sea cows!
  10. Anyone know if Oneida is still thick enough to fish this weekend?
  11. I restored an 87 outboard last summer from head to toe. You can pm me with any questions, I have learned those boats very in depth!
  12. Buckboard, The motor has a priming solenoid thAt is engaged when pushing in the key. That is functioning as I did that when boat was in gear and can hear change in motor. The only thing that I have not looked into fully is replacing coils and powerpack. Everything else has been cleaned and examined... Fuel wise. I am gonna try running down seafoam this evening and see if that does anything for me Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
