  1. Ill take every 47 size reel that isnt sold if you will ship them to 14094.
  2. Looking for a pair of electric riggers in olcott area. Would like swivel bases, long arms, dual rod holders but would entertain any decent shape riggers. Just setting up the new boat and not trying to mount these hand cranks if i dont have to.
  3. I really need a set of planer boards and mast. Would really like a 6'+ mast. And a set of otter boats but would consider anything. Just got a new boat and it needs a set of planer boards.
  4. They got line counters and get 2 ft per crank. Ive cranked up 10 lb fish weights with mine for years even tho they are rated for 8 lbs.
  5. Yup.....thats why i asked. I got 7 strand. So since i got to buy weighted steel or copper.....what is recomended?
  6. I have a ton of leadcore setups and was planning on switching to copper for my salmon trolling. I have about 1200' ft of steel wire and was thinking of using it instead. Mainly cause i already have it and because i wont use them much....unless they preform awesome. But is there any reason i should not use it. It seems like it should work. Comes off the reel nice and kink free and less hastle then copper. I was thinking about making a 500, a 300, and 2 200's. Should i run different lengths? Also how would i connect it to my leaders or backing? I only run 2 steel diver rods and have 1000 ft on both of them. No backing and connected directly to my divers with a crimp. Should i just get the copper or could i use steel and how? I think as a kid my grandpa ran steel flatlines. But i cant remember and fishing was different back then. Just trying to switch from inlines to big boards. Deeper lines and chasing salmon more than walleye. If anybody runs steel how do you have your setups?
  7. Search around....plenty of time to find a good deal on a pair of riggers.
  8. If you got good line and tie good knots the next issue might be line twist and try better swivels like a bead chain.
  9. Lots of things can make you wonder what went wrong. Id stay away from clear water mid day. Really early id run thru clear but once the sun is up find the green water. Zig zag thru the edge of any color and 2 degrees warmer is more than enough to get active fish. Just gotta try again. What times did you fish? and did you go tward the bar or olcott?
  10. If the fish lived then im sure it would heal up and be hardly noticable when it was caught again.
  11. That is a hell of a fish. There is bigger in there for sure but thats the biggest ive ever seen thru the ice at conesus. Hard to catch one there. Were you trying for them or just lucky? Depth? Bait?
  12. I fish from that dock all the time. Kurt in stalker and tom in summer school park there and ive been on both there boats. It would be bad if we ever caught anybody doing crap like that there. During the salmon run we fish it a lot and are always looking for people who dont belong. What boat is yours? I would be instantly suspicious if i seen anybody unloading gear from any boat.
  13. It could actually save you a ton of time and money to hire a guide...
  14. Wish i could afford it. That is my dream boat. Looks like the one on the corner of sunset im always drooling over.
  15. Well the old bayliner is......well.....a bayliner! Lol. So i got a older 1710 fish and ski. It isnt that bad and i could get a few more years out of it....but.....i just want to do it this year. Its got a transom where its just the center needs to be ground out and filled with seacast. Thats not a big deal really but i want to put in an aluminum L bracket across the inside spanning the entire transom so i can bolt on a kicker and tie it into the floor. It will be 70" wide 8" up the transom and 8" into the floor. Anybody with aluminum knowledge. If i used 6061 aluminum should it be .35 or 1/2"? 3/4? Is 6061 strong enough? Is there stronger aluminum? I dont really need this extra bracket but i already own this boat and got more in it than it will ever be worth. If i do it now i can fish it till i die and never worry again. So if you were putting a bracket on your boat what would it be? I know nothing about metal strength.....or much else. Just dont want to order a piece of custom metal and get it to find out its to weak or heavy or brittle. Honestly 6061 might steel for all i know???
  16. Those are the tite-lok rod holders. I had those before i switched to the berts ratcheting rod holders. They are adjustable and strong. Just dont ratchet so takes a bit to adjust them but good for the money.
  17. Isnt there hundreds of thousands of those scum bag russians? Does that mean we should be allowed to snag them, net them, club them in the head, cut out there reproductive organs and throw them in a garbage bag on the bank of the river?
  18. The launch in olcott is almost always open. I think it was locked up for about 3 weeks total this winter. Only ice fished it once
  19. 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.
  20. 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
