    First time pulling copper.

    I know it's my speed. Looking into a 2015 6hp. Might look used but I haven't seen any. Besides if I buy brand new it should last 10+ years. I can feel the tick tick tick but I'm using a little electric tiller and can't get enough speed. I was just messing around the first day. Must been a feeding frenzy. Keeping the rock snot off the lure seems to be the problem now but they seem to bite it even covered in green goop. Either way it was fun. Sent from my Moto E (4) using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Think I need a gas kicker before I get more gear. Last few times out I couldnt get the right feel. Probably couldn't go fast enough with the current or something. First night out I went out with a north wind that died down. Feel was perfect. Last few times after that it didn't seem to have the action or feel. Still caught some.

    I have two setups. Hand held extension cord feel which works nice and one mounted on a trip pod but it's a pain to hold it down and crank... I was surprised just the hand extension cord feel worked better. Was easy to wrap the slack up and then start cranking on the handle on the side. Jason is on my friends list so I will contact him this week. My last kickers was a 4 up Evinrude 4win. Moved me around nice even in the chop but I think the shaft was to short. How do in know what shaft length I need? I seen a 2015 brand new at a dealer for around $720+ tax. Sent from my Moto E (4) using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    No leader. that's how I was shown. I was told it was a great lakes spoon? Has a spade on it? Heavy spoon with a fixed hook. My app won't show me messages. Going to try and load it in browser Sent from my Moto E (4) using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    When we were doing it with the rod we were doing the action by hand. When one was on the guy giving action would hold the line tight while the rod man took up any slack. I guess a victrola would be the way to go since I fish alone 99% of the time. Sent from my Moto E (4) using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Never used one. The rod setup my buddy uses, he said the hard part is getting them to stay on when you switch from hand to pole. Rod setup had only 300'. How much copper is on the Vic your selling Fishy? Please me info with shipping thanks. Sent from my Moto E (4) using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    I went out with a buddy and he showed me the right way, the right feel. I got it down for sure. Maybe there was slack but I just held tension usually till they stop their ential head shake. Then started hauling them in. 0 for 7 this morning. All but 2 felt like solid fish. Definitely fun but I need a rod. The rod is only $238. I didn't check to see how much copper was on it tho. All fish were active between 20 and 35 feet today. Nothing out deeper. Just got tired of the waves picking up. Couple days out the west coming up. I'll give it a shot then.

    I was thinking that. Get there early enough probably beat the wind for a couple hours. Someone mentioned the ones with orange fins taste better... These all had orange fins and looked very healthy. Can't wait to cook them up Sent from my Moto E (4) using Lake Ontario United mobile app
