  1. Oneida ice?

    Anybody know the conditions on Oneida? My cousin is thinking of trying to go out this weekend. Thanks in advance. - GBL Puffer II: 1802 Trophy Green Boat: 1966 Starcraft Mariner-V 14
  2. Downrigger weights

    My Penn manuals are rated for 12lbs and I’m using 13s. Got through one season. Keeping my fingers crossed! - GBL Puffer II: 1802 Trophy Green Boat: 1966 Starcraft Mariner-V 14
  3. Downrigger weights

    I started with 10 lbs cannonballs myself. I switched to 10 lbs shark weights made by Bikinibottom here on the site. They worked better, but still a lot of blowback past 100’. Last year I got a pair of 13 lbs torpedo weights and that made a lot of difference. They track well and reduced blowback by a lot. Out 110’ (without crazy currents) my weights are in the high 90s for depths. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Penn Downriggers

    They are made by troll master now. https://troll-master.com Not sure if they make electrics. I have manual penns, can’t speak on the motors, but they’re built tough and I like mine a lot. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. Reel repair??

    I've given Dick multiple reels and he does very good work. I've been in his shop. He has walls of parts and will locate what he doesn't have. He also restored one of my grandfathers rods that I didn't want to get rid of for sentimental value. He will even build custom rods. Great guy. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  12. Catskill Trout

    Didn’t know where to post this. Went to a Catskill Stream and floated some eggs sacs made from a salmon eggs from a late summer hen. Small trout, but had a blast. 2 browns, 9 rainbows and lots of fun!
  13. Going deep

    That’s kinda where my comment was trying to go Matt. You just put it more straight forward! Lol! Totally agree. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    I would spool your reels with wire. Cuts the water well and achieves better depth. When I first started with divers, a mentor told me to use wire... So split a 1000’ spool on 2 reels and backed it with 40# mono, it worked well until a tangle left me with under 225’ of wire on one. Broke off, lost everything, dipsy, flasher, fly. [emoji30] Since, I’ve spooled all 1000’ on my reels. A bit more expensive but, it’s better to be able to trim pigtails and kinks in the end when you have 1000 on the reel. IMHO from my short experience trolling deep Water. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. Going deep

    What size? Setting? Speed? Size wire? It all depends. You kinda have to test it out for your boat and style. For me with magnum dipsys,30# 7-strand, at 2.3ish over ground.... normally run 1.5 setting, 200’ out gives approximately 80’ down. 300’ about 110’. Measurements done a couple times with a fishhawk TD this past season. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
