  1. Rod tree suggestions

    I thought about them as well but I can’t imagine it being much fun trying to get the rod out of the holder with a fish on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Rod tree suggestions

    These are what I have, they’re the cheapest ones I found and I couldn’t be happier with them. http://www.madsdocks.com/shop/Item/pmpoletree Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Shaman tdr’s cheap and nearly indestructible. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Trolling speed

    Wire dipsey rod with a 1lb meatball on a 3way swivel running down the chute. The action of the rod tells you your speed very well. I believe they were very popular years ago before all the new technology. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thumper rod. I run one 95% of the time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Otters vs Planer boards..... GO!

    I have otter boats with double keels and run in lines most of the time. Only time I run big boards is for spring Browns and landlocks when were running 4-5 lines a side. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Pro trolls work great on carbed motors where the servo is only opening a butterfly. Whith and efi the servo has to open the throttle body against a lot more spring pressure. I think that’s why I have had to much problems with a throttle control on my zuki. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I hope others will catch on! If the Etecs were a real kicker and not a detuned 25hp I would own one. They are too big and heavy for my boat. The thing that kills me is that the efi motors have the computer there, even if it’s 500-750$ add on I don’t know of many that wouldn’t want it. A factory toggle on the dash would be far superior to the aftermarket options we have available now.
  9. suzuki EFI 9.9

    I have one, it’s ran flawlessly has about 600hrs on it. It’s not as quite as my Yamaha. The problem I have had is with a throttle control, tried 2 different brands and neither worked great. I can’t believe no company has made one with a built in troll control on a kicker. Even the new Mercs efi’s wont have it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Bunk versus roller guide one

    I'm a perfect world I want to unload with a roller trailer and load with a bunk. My boat has a bunk trailer and will just about load itself if I don't back up too far. Tuning a trailer is very important for both roller and bunk trailers to load boats straight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Trolling with carbed two stroke?

    Have them tuned by someone that knows what they're doing and enjoy the new rig. One thing I always did when trolling with two stroke is run the snot out of them after trolling long hours to clean them out. Don't know if it is necessary but it's what I was told to do by an old boat mechanic and never had a bit of problems. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Vertical or Horizontal

    I run big boards and use rod trees, I couldn't imagine trying to get a rod out of the bottom rod holder with a dipsey and a king on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Prayer Request

    My thoughts are with you and your family! My daughter was born at 29 weeks. She's 10 and perfect now. Listen to the doctors they know what they're talking about no matter how crazy it seems! If there's anything I can do feel free to PM me I've been in your shoes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Share your rookie stories!!

    2 days after I got my driver license my best friend and I lied to my father and told him we were going to go to my friends camp on schroon lake fishing for the weekend. So Thursday afternoon we loaded up the boat a 1986 Starcraft 16ft and headed to Oswego. Friday morning at 4:30 we were launching the boat my buddy was with the boat when I parked the truck. Just got around the last dock when my buddy says " what the f*** my foots getting wet." I turned on a flash light and we had water up to the consoles. I knew enough to hammer the throttle and turn on the bilge. it finally got on plane and were able to get the plug put in from the inside. That next day we got into a school of koho's and were catching one as soon as we could get a lure back down. We were with a group of boats and the weather was changing fast, after a while all the other boats were gone and we were in big trouble. The storm was between us and shore and by the time I was smart enough to call it a day the waves were coming over the bow and the thunder storm was between us and shore. I ended up "running" off shore to try and get away from it and somehow I kept the boat from sinking. We both put on life jackets and at one point my buddy was under the passenger dash in the fetal position. "Something I still rag on him about to this day." That was my first solo trip to the big O about 2 weeks after my 16th birthday. We got home that Saturday night and We were still so scared that We told dad the truth, he wasn't even mad just glad we were OK. That's was over 15 years ago and I still remember that first trip like it was yesterday. I had been on the lake 100's of time with my old man before that weekend but that one was a big eye opener that I had a lot to learn. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Lake George equipment

    If you're catching that many bass you have to get it deeper. We get a bass here and there but if you're catching them like that it's gotta go deeper. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
