  1. There are my settings Sent from my LM-G820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. I can take a look when I get home and let you know my settings although I dont have the totalscan transducer. I have a gen 2 with the. 83/200 transducer. Sent from my LM-G820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. I have 12 different leadcore setups, all with tuffline micro lead that I use for walleye. I originally tried it because of the claimed deeper depth and mainly because I can fit 10 colors on a 30 size reel. I tested it out on a flat lake and found that I was getting 5 ft per color at 2mph, not the advertised depth of 6.5+. I have regularly hit bottom in 50ft with 10 colors out. Like everyone else stated it is very speed dependent, slow down and it goes deeper. Needless to say, I am very happy with the tufline micro and have no need to try anything else.

  4. Thanks, 30 or 40 lb mono? Sent from my LM-G820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Its 5ft per color at 2 mph, at 2.5 mph its more like 3 or 3.5 ft per color. You may gain a little bit of depth with more line out but with 30 lb mono it wont be much due to the drag of the thicker mono. If your backing was braid you might gain a little more.

  6. I am headed up to Olcott on Friday for a few days and was wondering how the fleas are. I would rather splice in heavier mono for my rigger rods before I leave if need be. Thanks Sent from my LM-G820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Lost my trailer plate a couple months ago, it took about a week to get a new one through the mail. Sent from my LM-G820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. We were out there at the same time, i remember passing your boat a couple times. We had the same results, 1 fish. Disappointing after how good the bite was this past weekend. Sent from my LM-G820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. I have a tandem axle trailmaster trailer under my fishmaster 196. The trailer is definitely not overloaded but two of the tires on one side of the trailer get more wear on the outside edges than the other side. Anyone have any idea why? Sent from my LM-G820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. The website or app you are looking at has the arrows backwards. Every else I have ever looked has the arrow pointed in the direction that the wind is blowing. Take a look at the windfinder app, it has been really accurate for wind. I would disregard the temp and wave heights displayed though.

  12. They dont need a license and they count as far as rods and limit go as long as you can justify that they can reel in their fish on their own. Sent from my LM-G820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Thats about what my buddies boat did with his Merc 115. His new Merc 150 will do 43 now. My yamaha F200 will do 49 with 2 guys and full tank, 45 with 4 guys, flat lake of course. I know my buddy is much happier with his upgrade, especially getting out of the hole. My first boat was underpowered and was a dog. I wasnt going to make the mistake again which is why I maxed out the HP on my new one. Sent from my LM-G820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. I would try and find one with at least a 150 hp motor on it. I know 2 guys that started with 115' s on them and upgraded later. Max HP is 200 HP on the newer ones. For some reason most of the older ones were sold with 115's on them. Sent from my LM-G820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. I have two Cabelas 8'6" downrigger rods and one 7'6" trolling rod for sale. 15.00 each, call or text 716-673-6614. Willing to meet within reasonable distance of 14063.
