  1. Well I’m sure there are a lot more technical answers out there but we don’t change ours due to clarity. We do change due to depth and time of yr. so in spring we run long leads. This time of yr our general rule of thumb is the deeper we run our gear the tighter our leads. If we are running gear pretty shallow our leads increase. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Yeah that may have been. I use familiar bite as well. I keep it in the package and stick it in the ice in cooler. Then use throughout the trip with no problems usually Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. Great job! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. This time of year we run 10-15ft back. Sometimes run them tighter like 6-8 if trying to avoid tangles with current etc Each day presents diff so you may need to adjust Longer like 30-50 in early spring king water Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. I’ve done it multiple ways with no difference. I’ve kept it frozen til it hits the water and also have run it thawed. You gotta remember when it hits the surface water it will thaw quickly anyways especially if using pre cut strips In my opinion the thing that makes the greatest difference is the roll behind your rig. If tuned correctly it is deadly Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. Logger Gen- do you go with longer leaders and then hand line at the end to the net? I go 8-10’ just due to that reason. Very interesting Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. So appreciative of pros like you willing to make this sport doable for the rest of us!!!! Great trip ! Question about the coppers. This time of year what are you usually running behind them? Thanks so much Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. PS. Once you experience a wire dipsey king strike you are smoked. You will be addicted if you already aren’t. Don’t set the hook. Just hold on Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. Dipseys are the way to go for your next lines imo. Agree with all above. No brained. My only advice is spend the extra money and get a decent rod (rod with twili tip is fine. Do not need roller) if using wire and a good reel. These rigs will take a pounding on hits and will get a lot of hits. Quality drags are a must. I also prefer wire for my dipseys but that’s just me Good luck. You will not regret it Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. It happens for sure. Thanks for the report Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. Nice pic. There is something magical about a lake O sunrise Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Holy smokes. That’s the luckiest catch of the yr. nice job getting her back Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Yeah agreed. Other issue is the rigger. The new cannons are too fast and the quick stops really put undue strain on the cables Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. Good night but ouch! The bottom has its share of tackle and gear for sure Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. I feel that pain. Have lost one myself. Sorry man Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
