  1. My old perchhound "The Frick". He can't go anymore because of weak/shaking back legs, he was my fishfinder for many years. When he would bark, I'd throw the anchor. 2/3rds of the time he was accurate. Some things a dog just does on it's own. When he was a month old puppy he upset many people on sodus bay ice fishing. He got away from me and must have sniffed every hole on the bay. He was a perchhound since and sad I don't have a pic of him on the boat. Got a little pup a few months ago, he has lots to learn, but a pic from a few days ago. 1st time on the boat, Silver Lake. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. That works. I haven't seen many people post in the "open seat" section on this site in a while, announce your situation and you might get to do some fishing. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. A grinder with a cutoff wheel will get your boat up here. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. I will try taking the swivel out and haywire to the ring on the spoon. Thanks for the tip! Makes sense and will keep the hook from getting beat up on the rocks. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Yes. It has a 12 volt dc gear reduction motor on it. Basically the sewing machine is the chassis to hold the shaft. The lexan and wingnut/spring on the end of the shaft is the drag. When you have a fish on, you press the sewing machine pedal with your foot and hand over hand, when the laker makes a run, the little disc you can see slips on the big one so it can take wire out without ripping its lips off so we stay hooked up. So much easier than coiling on the boat floor and winding it on the wooden holder my cousins gpa made. This is the spoon I pull also. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. When you don't have a victrola box or a sewing machine to gather up the solid copper wire, coiling it at your feet on the floor of the boat is just as important as fighting the fish. When the mud chicken takes a 100 foot run out through your hands, which is your drag, no kinks, no tangles, and ohh boy, a birdsnest hurts getting pulled through your hands. If you don't have a reeling device, the coil at your feet you purposely made is very important. Don't move your feet or let the net man step on that. That's a day ender. Land the fish, sharpen the hook, and with care feed the spoon back out to depth before you move your feet. Then hand the wire to your buddy, jump behind the wheel and get them on one!

  7. I bought this copper reel from a man that age prohibited him from fishing anymore. It keeps the tangles and kinks to a minimum. A birdnest on the floor of the boat basically ends the day if someone moves their feet and gets it overlapped. A kink, you'll just loose your spoon on the next fish or two. Like sk8man said, the tick tick on the bottom is what you want to feel along with the flutter of the spoon in your fingers. A good partner that can follow contour lines or keep the boat within 10 feet of the water depth you want to be in makes a big difference also. Some days you need to yank 3 feet and let out every 30 seconds, some days more subtle works better. I have 3 hook sharpeners on the boat, the hook gets beat dragging the bottom. It gets touched up every fish. If you drag for a half hour w/out a hit, pull it in, usually a fouled spoon w/ a zebra mussel on the hook. Have fun. Hand over hand your first big one is a blast.

  8. My home made one. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Factory models look nice. I made my own. I will see if I can put my hands on em'. Everything is put away, but I think I remember? I'm getting to that age. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Short of a long story. I had a 10 yr old carhartt coat, a 8 month old hound, & ice on sodus bay. Took him ice fishing w/ me thinking he'd lay on my old coat & chill out. The 1st perch that came out of the hole, he was a perch hound. I spent the rest of the day tracking my dog, cause he sniffed every hole in the ice for miles. Some guys were ok, some were upset, all would say "your dog went that way"! Found him before dark & the rest is history. He rides up on the bow, when his left leg starts shaking, we'll use the trolling motor & settle in. He sniffed every hole in the ice that day, 100's. He likes to find fish. If you train for coyotes, get 4 dogs. Where I live, they bay them in a culvert pipe under a driveway. 2 dogs on each end. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. 10-4. Mine can still get distracted from a year old squirrel fart in the wind. He's a pet, don't hunt him anymore. He can smell a fish though, when he barks, I stop the boat. 2/3s the time he is right. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. No doubt. My dog's dad, a redbone, got over 8 kennel fences to pollinate the running Walker. She was also a mean girl. She was a coyote chaser. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Not to get off topic of trapping, what are looking to get $ wise out of one of the Male pups Stone? My perchhound is a 1/2 redbone, running Walker & will be 10 yrs this spring. Old & whiteface. I'm not committing, just thinking. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. A couple "seadek" foam mats in the right spots gives some sure footing. Expensive but nice. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. I use raka epoxy. Nice guy, cheaper than west system, on the east coast also. Cut the pieces & 2 coats. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
