  1. I should have taken a photo of it, but the Catawba pier was exactly at water level in the boat launch side. The lake side was only a couple inches above water level and waves were going into the pier. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. I was in western basin of Lake Erie this weekend. I have never seen the water level there so high. I have no idea how long it takes for that to make its way to Lake Ontario, but there’s a lot of water on it’s way! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. A few years ago, I walked in there and asked him to help me pick out some spoons and flys as I had never fished the lake before. He picked out a large paddle, a cut bait holder, 6-8 spoons, and some flys and drew up a six line spread and showed me a couple areas to try on a map. I think we caught 7-8 kings and a few steelhead that weekend. I was impressed by how helpful he was and I’ve been back every year since. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. I have lowrance HDS9 Gen3 with airmar B150M thru hull transducer. I can track bottom at any speed and can mark suspended fish up to about 25mph in less than 50 fow all on the auto settings. Works great for walleye on Lake Erie. On Lake Ontario, the fish marks start taking up less and less screen space as the depth goes over 100fow that I lose that ability to mark fish at speed. Perhaps I could zoom the display to a fixed area from say 50 to 100 feet, but I have not tried that. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. I’ll add that the ‘lite bite’ feature really works as advertised. Lake Erie had a record walleye recruitment class last year. I was fishing the slide divers last October and was getting tripped by all the (at the time) 4-5 inch fish. I was amazed. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. I have a TD and was going to do this. I contacted the Precision Trolling app support and asked them for the ability to add a ‘user entered’ dive curve so I could add my own slide diver data on the app. Mark Rowanack himself responded back that the slide divers are on the list of products to support in the near future, so it’s likely the precision trolling app will have support for the slide diver soon.

  7. I came from Ohio Father’s Day weekend and was moored next to Fishnut (we were in the small Grady White). The fishing is as good as he reports and he was kind enough to give me some pointers to improve our catch. We ended up catching a dozen kings. We were doing better on spin doctor/fly and flasher fly than spoons but we’re primarily walleye fisherman with limited experience on Lake O. Our 300 copper was really doing well until the backing to copper connection failed on a large fish. We had a 12 color and 8 color running all weekend without a hit but that 300 copper with flasher fly got hit all weekend. Dipsy 180-225 with spoon on 9ft leader also did very well. I love how it’s not so crowded compared to Lake Erie western basin. Can put the big boards out as far as you desire and not worry about getting close to other boats. The other thing I love is when we fish for walleye, we spend a lot of time speculating whether we might have a fish on. We’ll be analyzing the rod tips looking for one rod to be bent slightly more than the others. These salmon announce very clearly when they’re on the line!!

  8. I believe the forward looking sonar would be good for finding early season brown trout. I believe there fish scatter when you drive over them and you never see them in shallow water. Here’s another video where a tournament fisherman discusses using this technology to fund walleye suspended high in the water column Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    TR1 Gold?.

    Here it is to buy from Hodges Marine. Item description is consistent with the Garmin site. This is the one you need: https://www.hodgesmarine.com/Garmin-Gold-Cylinder-Bracket-Mer-9-9-1999-2004-15-p/gar120-1010-01.htm?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIy5i53p622gIVFarsCh2Jtwh2EAkYASABEgIYjfD_BwE&ppcstrkid=1565162769&click=19&ppcsclkid=inTeQHBm9goD&ppcsu=xhg7f5djqeniramsegdoh Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    TR1 Gold?.

    The Garmin support site shows part number 120-1010-01 as compatible with Mercury 15hp 99 and newer https://support.garmin.com/en-GB/?faq=iWIKkJsON5AUtL3TUMduC7&searchType=noProduct&utm_source=faqSearch Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. I can vouch for the Panther 55-0416. Very sturdy and functional bracket Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Just measured the set back at 10in. I don’t think it will work on a straight transom. I have 08 Yamaha F15. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. I have that mount. I couldn’t tilt my motor. I’ll give it to you for shipping cost if you want to try it. I went with the lift bracket once I realized the tilt issue Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. Here’s my ‘too good to be true’ find. I already have this boat in 2002 model with ox66 150, but this one is two years newer, it’s nicer, and has even lower hours and more power. This boat tows well with a full size SUV also. The 208 is great if you want to trailer. There are boats out there if you dig deep enough. https://www.cooperss.com/asset-detail.php?name=marine&id=1789 Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. I wanted to follow up on this. The TR1 is installed and will really make our trolling more efficient this year. I used a group 24 battery that showed as 60 percent charged. I trolled for two hours with the TR1 and and F15 connected. I rechecked the charge percentage when I got home. The battery showed as 100% charged meaning the F15 was able to take the battery from 60% to 100% charge while the TR1 was operating. I’m all set now! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
