  1. Leadcore line

    Nice! They're a great company. Always go way above and beyond on the service.
  2. Leadcore line

    20% off all rods and reels at FishUSA today. Plus buy 3 get one free on lures. I'm out of dry powder at this point, after the rest of their specials this month, but you could put together some nice deals today.

    I used the Okuma Cold Water High-Speed Wire reels this summer. 6.2:1 ratio. I liked them a lot. Line counters on the 30 and 45 size, but a bit more expensive than the Convectors. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Which should I get first?

    That's exactly what I did and highly recommend it. In the winter for GPS and fish finder on the ice and in the summer I just set the unit on the seat of my jon boat and used a wire hanger to secure the ducer. Worked perfectly. Great year round fishing tool.
  5. Smart troll review???

    I didn't have a very good experience with mine but I hope it was transducer placement. I'll be moving it for next season. The pros are all already outlined. Cons for me were the transducer bracket being too big for a stern saver making it tough to mount on my Ranger. Shouldn't be a problem on a great lakes boat or even an aluminum multispecies with a large flat transom. The other con is seeing the android screen with sun glasses.
  6. Chamount/Henderson walleye

    Well. No luck for me but totally my fault. I tried to wish things into an October pattern and stayed shallow. Left the riggers at home. 0-1 on kings and 4 small walleyes. Worst weekend fishing in a long time for me but that's what happens when you don't go where the fish are. Gorgeous time to be out there though.

  7. Spinning rod and reel for Kings

    Correction. 40 size reel. The 35 is my steelhead reel. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Spinning rod and reel for Kings

    Sounds like a good setup. I use a 9'6" ML St Croix with a Pflueger President 35 size and 10-14# Fireline to a 20 fluoro leader. (Same rod I use for steelhead with a reel change) I personally get too many wind knots and tangles with regular braid like power pro and try to never use mono on a spinning reel anymore due to line twist. I do also have a 9'6" casting rod with straight 15# mono that I use though.
  9. Chamount/Henderson walleye

    I'll be up there this weekend chasing kings first, then probably make my first run for eyes. I also may hit the big river for the elusive Muskie. What a great area to be in this time of year. It's gonna take some serious beginner's luck to find the eyes and skis though. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. Caught this little coho (I think) out of Oswego a couple of weeks back. Built like Buzz Lightyear Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. I had a real nice day out of Oswego today. All FF on mag dipsies, 2 setting out 260-300. 7/9 on decent fish, 16-28#. Nothing but runts on the riggers, even running FF.
  12. Tin Pan Galley! Now I'm really jealous. I need to get up there soon. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. C&R fish

    Boga grip on a 6' rope tied to a cleat is the best I've found. Drag them for a few minutes until they get feisty. My boat is low to the water so you may need a longer rope for a proper lake o boat. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. Dunkirk Walleye 7/26

    Wow. Gorgeous fish. Congrats Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. I use 30# fireline on diver rods. The fleas don't seem to like it like other braids.
