  1. 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
  2. It happens for sure. Thanks for the report Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. Nice pic. There is something magical about a lake O sunrise Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Holy smokes. That’s the luckiest catch of the yr. nice job getting her back Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. 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
  6. Good night but ouch! The bottom has its share of tackle and gear for sure Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  9. Sweet. Way to go man Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. When we use copper we usually go with a spoon or meat but that generally depends on what the fish are hitting in our rigger and dipsey spread Many use FF as well Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. IMO it’s not so much the type of line you are running when it comes to speed it is more the lure. As example spoons tend to fish better a bit faster than say meat as example. So once you get your gear dialed in on the riggers (and firing) then you should be good for your junk lines. Not sure if you are running on planers or down the chute but using the right copper and lead ore length at the right time of year matters. In spring for browns as example you may want short lead cores but will need 7 or 10 colors as the fish slide deeper in the summer I use 300 coppers all summer with good luck but many get deeper with longer with great success. Agree completely with above. If you have down speed use it as that will take currents into account Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Sweet fish. Any idea on weight? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Fished Thur through sat Thursday took us a while to dial in No kings Thursday but plenty of Steelies. Fish taken on spoons mostly off riggers and 7 color w spoon. Largest steelie 13# came off of diver out 2OO With meat rig Free sliders had action as well Fri took a 21# laker off spoon in 90fow first thing and headed north. Found kings 220-240. Largest 18#. Mostly spoon bite 60-70 down but bite died around 8. Headed north found some more steel at 400. In around noon to 120 and played with lakers for a while who were more than willing. Just pIcked up Gamblers death traps. Holy cow. Ridiculous. Great attractor. Going to order a cpl more today sat fished bald eagle tournament. Fishing on fire All rods took fish. Insane bite 200-225 fow down 55-65 from 530-8 then slowed. Slid north and found solid kings in 400-425fow gear going around 80-110 down. Had horrible luck with dropping them for some reason but that’s the way it goes. Finished middle of the road in tournament but had incredible numbers of bites sat. Huge shout out to Nick Rusin at Rigged Sportsfishing Charters and his crew for putting in the tournament and all that helped with tournament. Great day and really ran smoothly.

  14. Gotchya. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. Just curious where is sandy pond area? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  16. Agree with above. As for the meat there are lots of ways to go. Sharon carries 2-3 brands at Narbys if you want to get started. After you get used to running it you can experiment with doing your own etc. agree with others a lot of preference here but most agree that meat flat out produces on some days Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  17. So true. When I got into this game I was absolutely shocked at the price of good swivels. It’s kind of like the joke that says “why is divorce so expensive? Because it’s worth it!” Well same goes for swivels LOL Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  18. Yeah that’s crazy. We had a 5 pound sterile on a slider not release one time and my buddy ended up with a treble buried in his hand. Thank god for you tube on how to get it out. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  20. What a great pic Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  21. we use the uni to uni knot for leader to mono (leader about 10') then an albright to the snap swivel then to spoon. I must say that the leader question is a debate in itself I know many charters who use straight mono and clean up. But nobody seems to debate the flea issue lol
  22. for kings we use straight 40# big game leader down or up according to the season 12# floro up until about June then bump up to 15# we run the heavy line due to the fleas and never have any
