  1. And btw. Love Burbot. One of only 4 fish I'll eat along with yellow perch, crappie and walleye. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. I started using VMC Crankbait Snaps this year and really like them. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. I pull about 6" of lead out and then tie a uni to uni knot with the mono and the sheath. It's worked fine for two years. Small enough so it doesn't hang up and no break offs yet. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. That's awesome, Bruce! Congrats!
  5. Thanks, guys. That gives me some peace of mind. I've got to get my end of year service up there this weekend so hopefully I can get out for a few hours.
  6. I hit the river for my first time out of Clayton Saturday with a buddy. 5 hours dragging 3 lines and nothing to show. Not even much marked in the area we were trolling. Quick question. If I want to go over to 40 Acre I need a Canadian fishing license, passport, normal coast guard required gear and a call to Canadian customs/immigration to notify them, correct? Or am I missing something? I usually just research this stuff myself but wanted to check with the guys on here first because I'd hate to get jammed up over there. Thanks, Chow
  7. Lets hope they come out with some even cooler stuff with some more money behind them. Of course, this most likely means they will be sold to someone bigger in a few years. "Peak Rock Capital said it purchased Do Outdoors Inc., which does business as Lew’s Fishing, a supplier of branded fishing reels, rods and accessories. ... The firm said it plans to invest in product innovation along with strategic add-on acquisitions as a part of its investment."
  8. Great info, Yankee. I only run divers so I'm very interested in ST. One more question, are you putting it right inline directly to the diver or using a clip farther up the line? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. I think Avids are great rods. I don't have any experience with the Pearl though. The grip looks like the same tapered cork they use on the Legends and I had a little trouble getting used to casting with that. My ring and pinky finger end up down the taper and slip a bit. Wish they just went with straight cork but that's my only complaint. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. St. Croix Avid Pearl are pink. Sounds like they fit what you're looking for. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. I picked up a Lew's Team Pro and Team Lite at the beginning of this past season. Great reels. Smooth and cast a mile. I think you'll be happy with your Team Lite. Before Lew's I used Diawa and then BP Carbon Lites. I'll be sticking with Lew's going forward. They seem to have more consistent performance. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Basspro already owns Nitro, Stratos, Triton and Ranger. Although Fishing Holdings, which holds Stratos, Triton and Ranger, was supposed to be kept under separate management from Tracker Marine. Lots of moving parts. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Yes. Wright's Landing does. Not sure if they're still open now. I'd call first. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. Wow!I took your advice and just got my light. Waved it over some glow plugs in a fully lit room and they still glowed. Amazing. Charges them up in a second. Thanks for the tip! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
