  1. Lowrance Elite 7 TI for sale. Includes Totalscan Transducer, sun cover, and RAM mount. Has sonar and GPS with a Navionics chip in it. Includes all cords required but does not have any instruction manuals or boxes. $500 $400
  2. Most will just keep trolling and fight the fish. If you're lucky, you might double up. If you aren't confident with that, you can just pull everything. There are boxes out there for flashers, called "flasher files" I think. You could also just store them in a plastic bin. Flies can be hung from pool noodles upside down somewhere on the boat or wrapped around the noodle. You could also put them in small plastic bags.
  3. I'm looking for a small jon boat / row boat. The boat must be able to handle a 9.5hp motor, so 10-12ft, and it must have papers. I'm willing to pay up to around $400.
  4. Still available. The Eagle Seacharter also includes GPS disc.
  5. Very disappointing....it was a great and convenient store. Now Mexico fisherman have to head all the way over to Pulaski.
  6. It looks very promising to me, Torpedo might become the new standard for weighted line. The lifetime guarantee they offer is cool, looks like they've got faith in their product. I wonder if it actually sinks at the rate of regular copper. It's hard to believe, but we will see. I'm excited to see this product in action.
  7. As others have said, attach absolutely everything in the boat to a switch (except bilge pump). This way, it is impossible for your battery to drain when you aren't there. If you have this setup it will be obvious when your batteries have gone bad.
  8. Better get used to it, North East winds are in the forecast until at least Monday according to NOAA.

  11. The best out there are torpedo shaped and shark shaped weights in most peoples' opinions. The weight is determined by your downrigger capabilities for your motor (or will to crank if you have manuals). I run lighter weights for spring browns because they're only a few feet down and it reduces strain on the cable/motor, but when it comes to salmon season I use the heaviest I have to reduce blowback.
  12. On our boat we say no bananas and after opening a beverage you must make a small sacrifice to the "fish gods".
  13. I've had a bunch lakers out of Ontario. They aren't bad, but they do taste a little fishy. It's worth a shot to keep one and see if you like it. I wouldn't freeze them though, doesn't taste very good after being frozen.
  14. There's a sale on FishUSA, 15% off of all dreamweaver products. Just letting everyone know so they can stock up before salmon season. http://www.fishusa.com/Dreamweaver
  15. I tried this, wasn't that bad of a walk. I used a separate line counter that counts the line that runs through it, and it was about 30 feet off at 300ft. Gonna spool mono on top then wrap the whole thing on another reel, recording when the mono ends, then wrap that much mono onto the reel and the other spool of wire I have. Thanks for the idea, didn't even think about testing it.
  16. Sorry for hijacking, but I wrapped a few wraps of 30lb mono onto the spool and then put 1000ft of 30lb afw stainless on an Okuma Convector CV 30 D reel. I've heard that 1000ft is supposed to fill the spool of an Okuma 30, but it did not. There is still about 1/4" of space on the spool. Will the line counter still be accurate?
  17. They look like they would work well for flat lining, but I can't imagine they'd work well for pulling heavy loads like copper or leadcore.
  18. Can you post a link? I couldn't find them on fish307.
