  1. I have a humminbird with map cards. Ipilot is my main reason for wanting it. In a little wind and waves my main motor is great. Just on flat days or with the wind id use electric if i could. Either way i want auto pilot to steer. Cant fit my kicker on it and might just get the trolling plate instead of pulling buckets. I use walmarts best batteries too. Lol. So kind of what i figured. It could work but not best idea to use to troll except slow trolling flat water. Thanks.
  2. Trolling with electric? Looking to get a new trolling motor for my old bayliner. 1986 1710 fish and ski. Still original trolling motor on it. Id like to upgrade to a new ipilot motor and be able to troll on electric alone. Could i realistically troll 4-8 hours on a 24-36 volt motor and get good enough speed in the little wind and waves i would go out in? Its a pain trolling with a 125 2 stroke dragging buckets and all the rods and riggers its a tight fit. Netting, driving, and not tangling up in all the gear. How much thrust and voltage would i need? Rather keep to the 24v but would 2 batteries be enough? I couldnt even imagine the motor i have now even being a usefull guage as to how much more power i would need. Its just always worked and i mainly drift or jig and its fine for that. So. Does anybody troll a boat on only the electric motor and whata the specs. Speed, time, volts, battery type.....any help before i spend more on a trolling motor than i paid for the whole boat? Lol
  3. I went out from 11-4. Start to set up in 50ft and get one dipsy out, showing buddy how to set the rod....says no problem, goes to other side and tangles the pole taking it out and drops new 9' ugly stick with daiwa line counter over the side....wtf? I just told him to drive and ill set them out. He asks if i think the waves will push the rod onto the beach? Seriously? Then had a wire dipsy fire and crossed my braid diver...cut instantly.....but slid down and got caught on wire dipsy....lost the fish but got the gear back.....then somehow my other steel dipsy snapped off at the swivel....lost a #5 diver with dreamweaver paddle and meat rig. Ended 0-1with the only shot being that white pro troll flasher with green meat rig 80ft. Marked a few....had a few streakers.....just an expensive day with no fish. Im going to have to pull strings and jump thru hoops to get back out there. Lots of pa and oh boats. Good to see them bringing there money here and there love for our lake. Alot of people complain about them but they spend at the bait shops and are cleaner than locals. Hope somebody is catching fish out there....and if anybody catches my rod just keep it and laugh every time you use it.
  4. I want matures. I plan on running meat on a rigger and a diver. Cheated rigger with spoons. Spoon and j plug on 2 lead cores. And 2 ff on divers to start. Atleast thats how they are rigged now. Hopefully that does the trick. I got all the goodies. I wouldnt care comeing up empty handed if i thought i had another shot at it.
  5. Me and my buddy are headed out tomorrow evening. Looks like its my only shot at them this year. Would love any depth, color, or hot bait tips!!!
  6. 10 color in 20-30ft of water? I run shorter cores in that tight and still drag bottom. Do you drag that and not get hung up?
  7. Sold / Closed

    Where you located?
  8. I need rod holders! Looking for a few rod holders. Really would like pedistal mount dual ratchet holders....maybe even a tree. Got a new boat and need holders for dipsy rods mainly. Let me know what you got. Prefer around buffalo-rochester area.
  9. https://www.louisianasportsman.com/lpca/index.php?section=classifieds&event=view&action=single_ad&id=795071 not sure if the link works but search the email and found an add with prices. I know garmin would never allow there products to be sold so cheap. If they take PayPal id order but id bet they want a money order.
  10. If I plan on hitting bottom I remove all but the back trebble hook on my lures. I smash my quick fish off the rocks quite a bit and don't loose nearly as many as I did before I started removing hooks.
  11. Cannon gimbal mounts I have a pair of cannon gimbal mounts I've had for a while and don't use anymore. If anybody is getting ready for this year and needs a pair of gimbal mounts I'd like to trade for something I could use. Looking mainly for swivel mounts, line counter reels, inline planers, rod holders. I'd consider any fishing or hunting stuff you don't use anymore. I had them for my old manual Downriggers so I could use them on my friends boat but we just use my boats now. I have been thinking of just selling them on eBay but if somebody here could use them here I'd rather just trade. I'd even add cash for the right stuff. I'm from Lockport and would like to meet anywhere from buffalo to Rochester. Let me know what you got!
  12. That is a great deal. And it isn't no exaggeration, 15% off instantly and 2 $75 dollar rebates. Thanks for sharing. Now find me a new trolling motor with the same discount! Lol
  13. Dude pm me what body of water you catch fish like that! Thats some nice catch. I never catch anything like that. I catch 25 keepers in a day I feel like a pro. Lol
  14. Red LED is the best you can get white and green spooks them faster. If you just blast them in the eyes with a high power green led they will bolt fast. Same with deer and everything else I've lit up. That green does light up the night though. White LED is not as bad if you just light above them and slowly bring it into there eye's it might be OK but red is pretty much the best it will glow there eyes way out there and not blind everything including me.
  15. Definitely ask the neighbor. That might stop it right there. Also call the police and tell them there was a problem. If you know his name give it to the police. That way they know if they are called that the guy was warned and needs to be charged with a crime. Hopefully that works. But if you here a gun shot. Run back there as you call the police. Don't let him take any deer off the land. Tag it and keep it. Have him arrested. Have him pay for any damage from driving on property and any damage he had done to the tree he put a stand on. Do not give in. Not even an inch. Press charges and be at court and make sure he pays the price.
