  1. Big woods bucks Fanny pack. A bit pricey but very good quality! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I have one, my boat is a 20ft tiller and weighed 3950 when I pulled it over the scale. I have an F250 in the driveway and unless I’m taking the truck camper I tow with the frontier. Plenty of power breaks fine, I have trailer breaks. All around it’s just more comfortable than the F250, I love my frontier my only complaint is that the mileage sucks.

  3. When I was shopping for my boat I had 2 dealers give me prices from the complete setup and on the list was a transom saver. One dealer told me he won’t sell me the transom savor because it is bad for the lower unit. The other dealer told me he won’t sell an aluminum boat without one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. What model are the big Jon rod holders? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. That is a beautiful boat! How does it do in waves? Doesn’t appear to be very deep in the bow? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Absolutely, I use snap weights often, I refuse to run a copper longer than 400’ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. That’s exactly what I wanted to hear, thanks! Anyone else have input? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I would skip riggers and just buy 2 braid dipsey setups and a couple copper reels and in-line boards and fish. Won’t need all the wholes in the boat for what little you’re going to do with it and most of the time catch darn near as many fish Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. My current copper setups are 2-150’s 2-200’s 1-300’ 1-400 1-500’s I have 2 new reels I want to put copper on, my original thought was to have another 300 and a 400 but my question is if you guys had limited space on the boat would you add a 250 and a 350 to split differences or double up the 3 and 400? Fish out of a small boat and only have a places for 6 rods that aren’t in use and usually fish with 2 people so I have 6 extra rods and a 6 rod spread. Thanks in advance!

  11. Fish307 works on them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Copper is always the first thing I put out for the day but after that I put it out overtop of everything else. The key is letting it out slow! If you have good reels with a smooth drag ounce you get a some out loosen the drag with the clicker off and let it deploy itself slowly while you’re getting your riggers in the water.

  15. Thanks for the advice, any recommendations on where to stay. Would love to find a hotel or cabin that’s reasonable price and safe for the boat.
  16. This is very good advice if you’re going to keep it! If you’re unsure of what you want and think you may change in a year or 2 this is a great way to lose a pile of money because the resale isn’t there. Make sure you factor rigging into your budget. My buddy and I bought boats about the same time I payed 1/4 of what he payed and put 10k into rigging with electronics, riggers, rod holders etc. he can’t afford to properly rig his boat so we fish mine 90% of the time because fishing his boat sucks!

  17. I should have mentioned we’re planning on going the week after next, weather permitting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. First time heading out since going into the Marine Corps. Coming from Saratoga, always fished Oswego or fairhaven but I’m not sure if either of those are open? Also looking for suggestions on where to stay I’m sure a lot has changed in 15 years. Any advice is greatly appreciated! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  20. Is there any podcasts out there that are dedicated to big lakes trolling? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  23. What’s everyone use for your face, all my buddies are having skin issues and getting stuff froze or cut off their faces and ears. I hate the oily feeling of sunscreen but I can’t stand wearing the masks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. I have a boat similar to yours and I run bags everyday I troll and I have a kicker. I run 2, 1 or none and am constantly pulling one and putting it back in because I fish alone a lot and I can steer the boat or keep the boat going straight from the back of the boat by pulling or letting out some rope. Rope size is no big deal. If 100$ prop isn’t doable money wise you probably shouldn’t be on the water, what your plan for a breakdown? If you need a tow in it’s nice to offer some cash for ruining another fisherman’s day. Most wont take it but you should always have some cash on you just Incase! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. Point your rod tip at the dip set put you thumb on the spool and yank the rod towards you. Keeping the rod pointed at the dipsey, if that doesn’t trip the release you have them too tight. There’s no stretch in wire so by doing this you’re putting pressure directly on the release and not letting your rod soak it up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
