  1. I ordered a Fish Hawk TD today. Next spring or if I hit the lottery I get a Fish Hawk 4. Just short cash so I went short. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. If I buy a auto pilot it will be costly as I have a steering wheel. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. I do watch the cables now. With the high water this year current is a problem, a mystery or asset . A week ago on Cayuga trolling north the cable hung dead straght down, going south. Going north my speed was almost 4 to 5 to spin a spoon. 2 going south. To those who pay little attention to detail, it would have been a fish less day. I had a great evening with landlocked and browns. The more I receive info the more I'm convinced I need to pick one up. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Good advice, those very small cable kinks are death to weights and tackle. I've been very lucky , over the years to only have lost 2 weights. Both preventable. Funny. I have extra transducers. Thanks for the input. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. I'm 65, it's a 16ft. Easy in easy out. Most times I'm alone. Never fish rough or stormy days. Lately with the storms I've been on the beach. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Outstanding information, thanks so much. I'd fish more if I caught more. Don't have a huge boat but on good days it will get me where I need to be. Now I have to ponder the purchase. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Before I layout the cash for one how many of you use fish hawks and how have they increased your catch? I only fish lake Ontario 5 to 8 times a year. Mostly the fingerlakes. All input will be helpful. Thanks. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. I used the etching rustoleum as a base. Then standard gloss. Worked great. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Boy they suck. Just think how many there are! That many on a line that's .030 thick. Trillions. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Jigging isn't a problem. Your not dragging line for long distance. Are there flees on Kayuka? Sent from my SCH-I545 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. They will cling to anything they can. Look up the Spiny waterflee. They look like jelly on your line in long 2 to 12 inch globs and they stick seriously smell. I wash my bait well with clorox and water. 20 % mix. I fill the tank and leave it 30 minutes. I'm sure that length of time will kill them. Then the day after I fish I take the boat to the car wash. Blast it with soap, hot water. Rinse. The jenie is out of the bottle for most lakes they are all over but I try to do my part to kill them and other weeds and such.

  12. So, how are the flees on the big lake? Sent from my SCH-I545 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. With a long pier to help with rough days. Again, more perch fishing. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Lol. I use 220 volts lol. No I use extention cords for the down rigger hook ups. I line fuse, just plug in. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. I was a nasty storm. Heavy down pour. I just made it in and out off the water. No wind makes for a very tough bite. Flees really suck. Good luck next trip. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
