  1. I bought this last season and tried it for a couple of hours before realizing that I can't switch back and forth between left and right handed reels. I took the line off, wiped it down and put it back in the box. $80 OBO I love these reels. Only selling because it's Right Handed. I'm on the north shore of Oneida Lake so can meet around the lake or will look into shipping, if necessary.
  2. 50/50 sticks/spoons on the browns. All spoons on the bows. Black and orange mostly. They were puking up a lot of small baitfish. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. I have mine track mounted. Makes it real easy to switch the configuration around for different types of fishing. You’ll have to think about what you’ll want in there at the same time and make sure it will all fit though. Also that the gunnels are strong enough to support the riggers.

  4. Thanks for the inspiration to get out there this afternoon. It was a slow pick at first as I tried to find the right depth and then it was on for the last hour and a half. I went 12/13 on browns and 3/4 on small steelies. Half of the browns were nice fatties but nothing really big. All bites were around 20fow, 5-10’ down. Same program as spring.

  6. Gorgeous fish! Congrats. Mind me asking how long it was? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. I think you're on the right track. I split my time casting and trolling and fishing a lot of walleye, bass and now musky and would go for a lower set multi-species over a pure Lake O style trolling style boat myself. As much deck space and internal storage as you can swing. I had an 18' Lund Impact that was perfect for that but there are some less expensive options in the same style. As for launching a big boat on Waneta. It's coming in that's the problem. Turning my 22' fiberglass in that channel and getting it on the trailer last night with a ripping North wind was a chore to say the least. And I also learned that when you think there is no one around at that launch you should still keep the expletives to a minimum because there is a house next door that can hear you fine from their porch. Whoops
  8. 2 casting, 2 trolling. Both casting fish were on the Phantom Softail again. Loving that bait. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. I used to keep my boat covered in the driveway all summer and then pay to put it indoors for the winter. Cost $150 a year and worked out well. The only downside was having to schedule a time to put it up and get it out. You’re always risking missing time that you could get out early or late season and also having it in the driveway for that first big snow storm. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. Nice! Thanks. I was mainly running 3.5-4.2 so I guess I'm in the right range. Just couldn't put together the last couple of outings but hopefully I'll get back down there soon. Casting, I fell in love with the 7.5" Phantom Softail last trip. I put it on and couldn't believe how easy it was to work and how good it looked. A dozen casts later had my first fish on it. Got smacked again a little later. It may never work again but it's got me hooked. Good luck!
  11. I spend most of my time there trolling but I've done some casting and picked up a couple with some follows and misses. All of mine have been in 6-10fow on a glide or twitch bait. Do you mind me asking what kind of speed you're trolling at? I have had a couple of really slow trolling days in a row out there and just feel like my speed may be off. Thanks,
  12. Nice! Good luck. I think identifying bait and structure with it is pretty intuitive but you can shorten the learning curve a lot on ID'ing individual fish by watching a few Youtube videos. There are some great ones on it. Get the hang of how the screen is shown, with the water column split and flattened out to each side until you hit the bottom. There are some good explanations on it using a piece of paper that helped me. And once you get the hang of identifying the bright (fish) returns and their shadows then identifying fish (vs. rock & logs) and how far they are off the bottom becomes fairly easy.
  13. As long as it has Mega imaging you'll be good. I know from the other musky trolling post that you troll weedlines/breaklines for musky. You'll pick those up with Mega imaging. Mega+ is even better but that's the G2 to G3 price jump. I was out in 10-20fow fishing musky and kings last week (different places, of course) and the newbie I had with me was picking out fish on the Mega SI.
