  1. Like a lot of people I've been organizing my stuff. In doing so I found I have way more planer boards that I need, so these are up for sale. These are from Opti Tackle. I think they sell for about $25 new. I have 5 of them, 3 right side and 2 left side. These boards came with rear clips that I wasn't crazy about. I changed them out with ones that have the little peg in the middle, if you put the line behind the peg, it keeps the board from coming off the line (see picture below). These boards pull nicely and the tattle flags all work. I get a discount with UPS through my employer so I'm asking $70 shipped to your door. Would prefer PayPal but I'm flexible. Thanks for looking.
  2. Well done. But I hope to be there on Sat. Please leave a few in the lake. LOL...
  3. I would definitely recommend boards, especially in shallow water so you can lines away from the boat. Off Shore Tackle makes the best ones but they are pricey. I have a couple of those and I have some Opti Boards as well. Opti's are a lot less expensive and include the Tattle Flag. With Off Shore you have to buy the Tattle Flag kit separately. I don't see any difference in how they run in the water. The only issue I have with the Opti's is the line clips they use. I'm not crazy about them. The Off Shore Line clips are much better. You get what you pay for.
  4. Hi cmc Most of mine and my partners spoons are Michigan Stingers so they would have been the majority of what we put in the water. Fishing spoons in that shallow of water we typically use clip on weights with the boards. My partner likes dipsey divers and I prefer tad poles so we would have used a mix of those but not on the boards. If it helps t know, we were trolling around 1.4 or 1.5. I know a lot of guys say 1.5 and up for Spring Browns and it looked like everyone was going faster than us but we were catching fish and both believe in the old football adage "run it till they stop it" so we didn't change. Good luck!
  5. Last April we started out trolling a mix of hard baits and spoons. After a few fish were in the boat it was clear spoons were the way to go. We were trolling in less than 20 FOW and caught them on a couple of different color combinations but I can't recall which ones. (I really have to start keeping a log) I do recall we felt like flash was more important than color.
  6. Hi all, I have a 13 3/4 X 17 prop manufactured by Michigan Wheel. It's for a Yamaha outboard. As near as I can figure, it should fit most of the larger Yamahas made between 2006 and 2016; not sure about the latest model years. If you're worried about fit I'll gladly let you fit it before we finalize the sale. I rolled the dice and bought it to try to fix a listing problem, but it didn't help so I'm trying to get a few bucks ($50) back out of it. It was on the boat for about an hour so when I say "like new" I really mean it. It retailed for about $100 (pic of invoice included) I live in Easton PA (Eastern part of the state) but travel to upstate NY often. I'll be heading up again on the day after Thanksgiving to go hunting so we may be able to meet around that time. Due to weight I'd like to try to avoid shipping it but I'm sure we can work something out if someone is interested. Thanks Frank
  7. It is hard to believe and disappointing but not surprising. I have no idea how any local bait and tackle shop survives in the age of online shopping. Very sad.
  8. I guess that means some are still in close. Thanks for the info.
  9. That is a nice fish. I know you said you were fishing walleyes but what were you pulling? How deep? Etc?

  11. We caught 4 each day, all in 15 FOW or less trolling stick baits and spoons. All action was in the middle of the day. Still trying figure out why we got up at o'dark 30 in the morning. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
