  1. Yes, be sure to run a high quality ball bearing swivel between your main line and leader. Spoons and flashers to a lot of spinning and twisting that could weaken your line via line twist if you were to do a line-to-line connection. On the business end, I generally run Spro Power Swivels w Coast Locks in sizes 2, 4 or 6 depending on what I’m running (meat rigs vs FF vs spoon). The smaller the better IMO Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Regarding the wash down - I bought a 6-7’ section of 2” (I believe) flexible tubing from the hardware store. When I need to rinse the deck down I fit it over the livewell fill and let er rip (I’ve got a bow well and a stern well, which is convenient). It doesn’t have a ton of pressure, but it’s enough to rinse the blood off in a pinch if you fit your thumb over the end of the tubing. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  8. Hi Bluegiller, The USCG defines "underway" as follows: Any vessel is not at anchor, or made fast to the shore, or aground. Rules are rules, don't want to see any one get a ticket, or worse.
  9. All, please remember to abide by the cold weather PFD laws effective now until May 1. "Anyone underway in a boat less than 21 feet in length anytime between November 1 and May 1 must wear a securely fastened life jacket. This includes canoes, kayaks, rowboats and motorboats Commercial vessels are exempt. NYS Nav. Law Section 40.1(e)." https://parks.ny.gov/recreation/boating/documents/PFDLawsofNewYork.pdf
  10. Thanks for the report! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Out of Oswego you gain roughly 100' of depth for every mile out. Keep in mind, east end weather can get sloppy in a hurry.
  12. Guys, let's please remember to be sensitive to naming FLX tribs.
  13. The 2116's are awesome, and I've had good luck with my 1116's as well (approx. $1,200 for the pair). I prefer them to the Cannon Mag 10s I had on the boat before.
  14. Nice fish, Mark! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
