    Starting over

    -You know the Islander could have started that fire, they are the jealous type. Keep an eye on her... Sorry for your loss I have a couple of pen 210 reels that I just got back from having new drags installed let me know when you're up in Oswego and I will give them to you. They are not bad reels and hold a lot of line.
  2. Sold pending receipt of funds.
  3. Tried a few time to get in touch no answer....
  4. I am guessing around 5 years old and no binding that I can tell it works perfectly.
  5. I'm selling my working Raymarine smartpilot X5-R auto pilot. This is for the complete autopilot, everything included. What is included is the helm, a ST70 control head, the course computer, flux gate compass, and the cable talk wiring for a complete install. It has all the documentation and I believe I even have the original boxes (but I would need to look if you want them). What’s better is this unit is still installed on my boat and is working so you can come and look at it work, and see how its installed yourself. You can even help uninstall it if you want a working knowledge of how to install it into your boat. Some info from the Raymarine site…. The Raymarine SPX-5R pilot is a helm mounted autopilot designed for use on small sports and fishing boats typically up to 9.2 m (30 ft) in length. Suitable for use with fixed and tilt helms, the pilot consists of a drive unit that fits over your existing steering wheel shaft, a course computer with a rate gyro for precise course keeping and control head with large LCD information display. Mechanical steered boats – up to 4,400 lbs (2,000 kg) Hydraulic steered boats – up to 7,000 lbs (3,181 kg) $700.00 cash or $725.00 Credit card.

  10. No you’re doing it right. You are correct on the desired numbers. You were not clear in what you were doing. So someone was giving you advice on something else. you are checking your voltage/amps on your downrigger cable is correct? if so yes you want to be about .6 it rise because you boat is acting like a battery. It’s gradually growing the current as it’s holding more voltage/amperage. Does not necessarily mean you have a electric leak it’s way too complicated to discuss on here, but the black box would fix it Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Fishing line recommendations please

    The standard go-to is BIG GAME as for the poundage you may start with something around 15# Having said that, there are many variables that can change that poundage, but they pretty much are all good today, P-line, blood run, all the stren line, and on and on the list goes. Almost all the line today is much better than line 15 years ago.

    Dipsy divers and meat

    If you run it with a smaller paddle, as normally your running meat with Big A.. paddles, just drop down to the normal 8" paddle like for a fly and it will work fine. .

    Rod length for lead thoughts

    What to run on copper opinions

    Pick a starting point.... say meat and if you cant generate some strikes after a couple of color changes, by all means, go to a spoon or Fly n flasher. What gives you confidence is the best thing to run, just don't run it all day with no strikes that stubbornness.

    In line boards- necessary Modification.

    Use two rubber bands half hitched around the braid, then hook the rubber bands to the planer, you can go to 3 bands or down to 1 depending on weight of the line your pulling. Half hitch the rubber band 3X though (each one) so they don't slide. This although a pain to do works and will reduce the swearing on your boat substantially. I cant get anything else to work either on inlines with heavy lines, that's why we go to the otters many times.
