  1. I have run both extensively. I currently have both. The cannons are a better dipsy holder due to the one-handed operation. Up or down. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Def. some bags on each side of the boat. Also, some brands of GPS(Lowrance) have a speed that jumps all over the place. I installed a Garmin that seems to be a lot less jumpy. I also use a Furuno GP-39 for speed and location. The Furuno speed seems to be much more stable and predictable. I turned the speed off on the Lowrance, and only use it for my chart.
  3. Duck hunters run their outboards into January. The biggest hurdle is the launch getting icy. Some will simply tip the motor all the way down before it freezes as soon as they pull the trailer out. Some will have a buddy keep the motor running at idle until it just exits the water on the trailer and then shut it down. Modern outboards gravity drain really well.
  4. FWIW, I have been using 65# braid all season on my dipsy rods pulling a mag dipsy with the ring on it. The fleas have not been all that bad. Maybe the fleas have not been bad this year, but I have been very happy with it. On the occasion I get a tangle with the rigger, the braid has played much nicer with the mono than wire. No chafing, no cut offs. I will say the braid has been very slippery to untangle though. Also, I have been using the stock eyelet tip on the dipsy rod, so that's a plus too.

  5. I noticed it too. I just figured it was too deep for side scan to be effective and went back to trad. or downscan sonars. I do like the looks of it in shallower water. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. They will do 12's. I did it for years. Not fast on the retrieve, but will do it time and again. If you motor down, they will do that faster too. I always clutched mine down though. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I have run braid and wire. I actually see the benefits of both, but the negatives of wire outweigh the negatives of braid. So braid it is for my boat. We run 65# PowerPro with 30# mono as backer. I think I put a few hundred of backer on. It works really well. Fleas are fleas no matter what you do, and no twilli tip to mess with.

  8. Properly functioning Mag10HS have autostop at the surface built in. You shouldn't have to set anything if they are working properly. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Very warm water along the mountain. Loaded with fish, but just a lot of loafing. Trench warfare is coming. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. I know two people that have a 20 Yamaha on a Baha 28. Pushes it around just fine. Both have custom made rigid brackets in he center at the waterline. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. As far as I know, Lowrance will not do it. I cannot find it on my Garmin Echomap Plus. Maybe the higher end plotters will do it. It would be interesting to see a list of machines that will do it. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. I have looked and looked. If you can find an old fishing hot spots map, they had the TD's on them. Funny thing is, a lot of fisherman don't even know what TD's are. We use TD's extensively here in the eastern basin. I know I may get hammered for this, but Bill Saiff III introduced me to the system and how it aligns perfectly with the structure of the eastern basin of Lake Ontario. Furuno GP-39's will overlay TD's and give you your numbers too.
  13. A switch and two batts for sure. Especially with that small kicker not charging. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Even better. Put in a main switch between the fuse block and batteries. By doing so, you eliminate possibly leaving something on and killing the battery/batteries. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. I put a Garmin Echomap Plus 94 on my Shamrock with a GT-51M transom mount 'ducer. Everyone says transom mounts don't read well on inboard boats. On plane there is some interference, but I can still see fish, bait and bottom. At trolling speed it looks like I am in demo mode it is so clear. I could not be happier with this unit. I love the hybrid touch/programmable soft button option on this unit. The touch option is lockable with a push of a button so clients don't mess up my settings, etc. Very intuitive interface and quick to move about the settings.
