  1. Don’t forget to put it on your scale before you bleed out. Every ounce helps for your story 🤭 Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Yeah another shout out to Brian and gambler rigs. All his products produce. Just started running Death traps and they are amazing. Pleasure to deal with and incredibly fast shipping. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. Way to go!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Yep sounds like you got a good idea of your plan. Also I would just play with your speed a lot til you find what they want. Bite is hot right now so you should find some action. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. I looked back. I bought mine from Doug (Dhm) here on Lou. Might want to send him a pm I am really happy with mine. So small and handy If you go with spoon pads make sure you know the size you are buying and figure out where you are going to hang/store them as for us that created a problem of its own Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. I have a bunch of the spoon pads from Amish outfitters like the ones above. They are okay but I must say that if you are dealing with space issues these are not exactly small. We went that way and after 1 year we went back to special mate boxes. Too much hassle with the pads for us. We have two big special mates then a small one that holds about 40 spoons that we take on the boat with us Far better in our opinion for small space considerations but again everyone has a preference Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. Wow I have learned a lot here guys. Thanks for the detailed responses. I really never thought of line diameter past being helpful for fleas. Need to heavily rethink Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Sorry last pic from last yr not this past trip Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. Out Saturday with a full boat of guys who don’t fish much. Dropped in 170 and concentrated on 170-240. Bite was steady from 530-noon with spoons and meat for us Anything with blue on it was hot 10 color w mag spoon took our second biggest mature while meat rig took our largest off rigger parked at 99. Healthy mix of steelies on top and kings beneath. Dropped quite a lot of fish this trip but landed plenty enough to keep group happy. 44 degrees down 65 over 120-240 is what we seemed to find Tried downspeeds of 1.8-3.1 but our best zone was 2-2.4.

  10. I have to agree. This yr we changed and despoiled all rigger poles with 40# big game And then leader appropriately. Fleas are very minimal on them. Is there a downside that I am missing to what we are doing? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. In addition to the pounding they take, you will be surprised how hard they are to get out of the holder when a nasty king is on the other end. In particular if you have people with you that aren’t used to it. Lots of ratcheting holder options that are sweet for this application out there. We use big jobs heavy duty ratcheting and they are fantastic. As others have said though, get the most heavy duty you can afford and secure on your boat. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Great report thank you Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Yep. Changed from 1’ to that. Hopefully there is a window Saturday am Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. Thanks Pappy Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. Pappy with those speeds were you running mostly spoons and FF? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  16. Great tip Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  17. Thanks for the report. Blue leopard has been hot this yr for us as well Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. Great job! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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
