  1. They adjust based on how you set them in the track. If you want to go from 45-90 you need to remove the holder and replace it at the desired angle.
  2. Bert's holders have a diamond-shaped base that lets you adjust the axis to be ~45, 90 and ~135 degrees based on how they are set in the track.
  3. In addition to icing the fish right away, and eating them fresh - bleeding the fish when you put them in the cooler makes a significant difference in the overall palatability of Lake Trout (and most fish, for that matter).
  4. Water was very low last weekend - I'd guess the last 10-15' of the dock had water by it, and not much of it. Cayuga Lake State Park was worse.
  5. Yesterday was 37 degrees in the cleaner water, and up to 39 in the dirty water
  6. I found this clarifying remark in the FAQs: Q12. Do I need to keep the Engine Cut-Off Switch Link attached at all times? A12. No. The Engine Cut-Off Switch Link doesn’t need to be attached when the vessel is idling, performing docking maneuvers or just going slow. The Engine Cut-Off Swith Link must be attached whenever the boat is operating on plane or greater than displacement speed Engine/Propulsion Cut-Off Devices (uscgboating.org) Important note for small-boat trollers.
  7. I've done a bunch of stuff on mine, but I think my favorite so far has been reverse-seared venison steaks...
  8. I can’t find the exact make and model of it, but it’s aluminum, and has “Remington” stamped on one side. Not sure if it’s OEM or Aftermarket... I’ve not had any problems with it. The saddles are pretty reasonable (compared to a new barrel). Give it a shot and see what you think. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. If you’re not dead-set on a cantilever barrel, check out a saddle mount. I’ve got one on my 1100 and am pleased with it. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Hundreds of Canadas and Snows flying high over Ithaca. Hoping to get on the lake this weekend.
  11. I have been running a Humminbird Helix 8 G3N with Chirp (no MEGA or Side Imaging) for the last 2 seasons. I've been very pleased with the unit for both trolling and jigging. I am able to watch my jig descend to +100', and can watch fish follow my jig throughout the column. It's been a gamechanger.
  12. Here’s the one I used (had to get a 5/16” for my kicker fuel line) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GV7KVXJ/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_api_fabc_BFaPFbM4YKKPR?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. I used a fuel filter assembly which has 1 intake and 2 outflows for the fuel lines. I added a check valve between the fuel filter and the motor on each fuel line and have not had any issues. Running a Yamaha 115 4-Stroke and Yamaha 15 4-stroke, FWIW
