  1. I'm glad the idea was scrapped. I've only been fishing the derby for a few years but it seems more often than not these days that tradition is being overlooked to simply progress. (Kind of like these bozos in the NFL that wont stand for the national anthem). And to be honest, the fact that Seneca has been slow makes placing or winning the even much more satisfying. It could even be a benefit as not as many boats are landing fish and increasing your odds to win. I do it to spend time with my friends and enjoy a sport that I love. The potential of winning something is just a bonus. Big thank you to all that have been working to put the event on the map again. Jim
  2. at least I didn't get skunked. ran out to 230' and had riggers at 130 and 150 and tripped them both. 1 for 2. had quite a bit of bait out there as well. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. I'm skunked so far. finding lots of bait and fish north of the falls on the east side but no takers. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Finally found out some info on this reel. Seems as though its rated for 300 yards of 30lb mono that has a diameter of .022. I have a 200 yard spool of 18lb sufix lead core and its diameter is .025. If I throw 60 yards of 65lb power pro at .016 diameter I should have plenty of room for my leader. Thoughts?
  5. Thanks for the update Nick. Im heading up Wednesday night and will be bringing some old timers along for a few days of fishing. Were the fleas a PITA? Message me if you want to grab a beer or something. Jim
  6. Disregard guys. I will have them tomorrow. Grainger carried similar knobs that are rated for heavy duty, high strength applications and they are only 3 bucks a piece. Here's a link if anyone ever needs them. https://www.grainger.com/product/INNOVATIVE-COMPONENTS-Four-Prong-Knob-3GDT6?searchBar=true&searchQuery=3gdt6 Thanks, Jim
  7. Walker Downrigger Clutch Knobs Anyone know where I can get a set of Walker Downrigger Clutch knobs really quickly? Was doing some maintenance on the riggers before I leave for Seneca on Wednesday and those damn plastic threads are just about stripped out. Why they would use plastic threads on a clutch is beyond me but I need a set ASAP. Picked up some stainless 1/2" wing nuts if I cant find some quickly. Jim
  8. Penn Leveline 350 Anyone have any idea how much backing I can get on a Penn Level line 350 if I want to put 10 colors of core on it? Its 18lb sufix leadcore Thanks In Advance Jim
  9. X2. Asking someone what release they like better is like asking them what their favorite s*x position is. They all get the job done but one is just always better.
  10. Shout out to Gambler Just wanted to throw a shout out to Gambler. Unexpectedly got some time to get away and fish next week and needed some gambler rigs. He told me to call him at about 9:15 after we messaged back and forth for a while last night and he has the stuff going out today. Great guy, great customer service. Thanks Gambler. Jim
  11. I have the same setup as Les. Works fine for me. I believe this is the mount both Les and I used. http://www.rammount.com/part/RAM-B-107-1U Jim
  12. Wanted

    Yup, fishy has a great selection of tackle. When I do get a chance to be on Seneca I always make sure to stop in and grab some stuff.
  13. Mercury 4.5hp Hey guys. Real quick question. A friend of mine died a few years ago and his wife called me yesterday about a motor she was selling. It's a merc 4.5. I'd like to take it off her hands but don't think it will be enough to push my fishmaster 196. Granted, I would only use it to troll and as emergency in case mercruiser wouldn't be working. I know it's not going to get me back in rough water but do you think it will push this fishmaster to trolling speeds? Jim
  14. Thanks Hop.... He is just finishing up a house they bought for a rental up near Severne and said he probably wouldnt be able to grab it this weekend unless he had a rain out day. He has to get things done as they have some people staying next month. He said he would give me a call if he could make it over this weekend. He said he would definitely be able to grab it next weekend though. I will PM you with my cell number so we can exchange numbers and hopefully it works out for this weekend. Thanks Hop I appreciate it. Jim
