  3. Wanted WTB Okuma rods w/reels

    Take a look on eBay. You can get new combos in 2's or 4's for $130-200 depending on the number you get. Sent from my XT1585 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Well I went and did it.......

    I have been running an '97 Proline 231 for three seasons now and I love that boat. It is not the softest ride in the tight chop, but it really is a tank overall. May next boat will be the 29 Proline. Congrats. Sent from my XT1585 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Best trolling reels???

    Did you know? You can buy the carbon drag washers on ebay for a lot of reel brands. I have done done three or four of my Magdas. I think I paid about $8 a reel for the washer kit. Just do your research, and be real careful taking the reel apart. They have lots of little parts that like to go flying. But they can be done DIY.

  6. Talk me out of buying this sweet boat

    My first boat was a little Wellcraft CC that began it's life in salt. ALL of the wiring on that boat was corroded inside and out. The connectors were so brittle you could not turn the screw without it breaking right off. The casings on the wire we're dry rotted and the wire inside was corroded. A bit from salt is and can be good, but just be really picky about the survey,etc. Sent from my XT1585 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Trees with pullys at top

    I would say go for it. I think two things to keep in mind: the strength of the gunnel, and the height of the pulleys. Make sure those two things are up to snuff, and you will be on your way. Sent from my XT1585 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. losing lake trout

    We catch a lot of lake trout with clients in the summer. The one thing I find myself saying A LOT, is "rod tip up." I am not implying you are an inexperienced angler, but I am implying the importance of steady pressure on the fish with the rod tip up and no pumping. They are soft-mouthed and tear out really easily. For the record, the majority of our losses are on the surface too. Sent from my XT1585 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Gimbal rigger mounts

    I use them as well. I like them, not love them. I am using cannons with short booms. I am leery of longer booms due to the increased leverage they would have in pulling outward on the gimbal mounts/ holders. Also, I have noticed when I free spool the weight down deep, the whole apparatus shakess around a bit. If I slow down the freefall, it steadies the set up, but sometimes it is unaviodable.

  10. Name this lure

    Agreed. Keeping a pair of pliers handy is a pain, and you run the risk of dropping them overboard. I broke down and bought one of the Tune-a-Fish things that goes around your neck. If I am running a lot of Reefs on a given day, I will put it on.
  11. Name this lure

    Pap, Reef Runners are notorious for being out of true. Guys that run them a lot true them every time before they touch the water. A pain for sure, but walleye killers for sure too. Sent from my XT1585 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Reels

    Do the new Magdas come with carbon drags washers? If not, try and go with Convectors for both. The Magda drags just don't hold up(sticky and finicky) with heavy fish. Walleye, Northerns maybe, but big fish need better drags. Sent from my XT1585 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Android issues

    I am having problems reading topics that I have specified to push notifications directly to my phone. A new problem since the update as well.
  14. Sold / Closed Lowrance hook4x

    I will take it for 50 bucks.
  15. TX 6 mini planers

    I have used the TX6s for walleye. They pull sticks just fine. I am sure they would pull spoons fine as well.
