  1. Need to put an order in today for wire for my dipsey rods. What is the easiest wire to deal with. I'm looking for that. Less kinks etc. Easiest. Is it the 19 strand? Thanks Sent from my LM-G710VM using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. So I attended the 2020 Salmon school at the expo yesterday in Niagara Falls. It was first class. I learned so many techniques and "little tips" that will be very helpful. The presentation focused on boats from 18 ft to 24ft, running a six rod spread. Meat, FF, spoons, long lines, when and where to run em and why. Had a segment on electronics as well. They brought in an expert on reading, tuning and techniques of how to set and dial in your fishing finder. They gave away lures, flashers, hooks, major discount codes for future purchases to eveyone who attended. And two different raffles with really cool giveaways. I wanted to say thanks to the three incredible captains that put on this presentation and all the behind the scenes preparation. For me it was so valuable to learn the little things. Super job guys. Can't wait to get the boat in the water! Tim F Sent from my LM-G710VM using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  6. Leader question here. When tying my leaders I'm using a Barrell swivel to connect my mono line to my mono leader. Is this correct? I have read about the Albright knot for mono to mono leader which would eliminate the Barrell swivel. Second, and this question is regarding trolling for Kings. What size (possibly manufacturer) swivel is best for attaching spoons at the end of my mono leader? Id like to get a system and stick with it for 2020 to make things easier. Thanks again. So much incredible knowledge on this site I'm trying to fine tune the little things this winter. Sent from my LM-G710VM using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  9. I am wondering what is the frequency of respooling new mono for my downrigger reels. I was out two times a week last year from May to Sept on average. Have been storing all my gear in the basement. Thanks, Tim Sent from my LM-G710VM using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Insert mic drop emoji here. Well done sir.
  11. Dear Lucky 13. You mentioned "That some lakefront property owners enjoyed flood control benefits from the narrowed range of lake stage that obtained from the opening in 1959-60 until recently is lagniappe, a 'little extra', but was not the primary intended purpose of the project. Having a famiky cottage in the SLR for over 80 years I understand the the history of the shipping interest etc. However family homes, cottages and business were on the river long before the seaway opened up. So I feel that the incredible profits made with hydro and shipping since 1959-1960 should be shared. And "a little extra help" ? My friend we are most likely going to lose our cottage forever. I'm not blaming anyone. I just think some people need to understand the devistation this has brought to both Canada and the US. 6000 people in Montreal displaced. It's heartbreaking. Marina's jobs homes etc. For me personally It's hard to read your post. Like this is something so black and white. We have heard so many different interpretations of why we are at this point it's maddening. So let's cross our fingers for the best. Merry Christmas everyone. Can't wait to get the boat in the water. Tying leaders today 👍

  16. So I have all my gear organized in the basement. It's time to start prepping for 2020. I plan on tying many leaders because it's just time consuming on the boat. I have the flourocarbon leader line and small Barrell swivels and swivels. I run lead, copper, dipseys and down rigggers. Not including flasher/fly leader length which I found on you tube, Does anyone have standard leader length they pre tie that works well ? Thanks for any help.

  19. Any ideas on what is a good gift to ask for that is a (mvp) tool or anything that you use on the boat while trolling/fishing. . And you always say "man I love this thing". My new NET took the prize this year for me. Thanks and have a great Thanksgiving everyone. GO BILLS Tim Sent from my LM-G710VM using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  22. I have a pair of Penn Squall 30 reels that I ran long lines off the back with lead and copper last year. I would like to run wire from these reels for my large dipseys. However these reels do not have a line counter. I have never run my dipseys without a line counting reel. Is this an issue? Are there ways/tricks to determine depth? Thanks Sent from my LM-G710VM using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  23. So I sent Cannon an email to make sure 200 ft of wire would suffice for a correct and accurate read with the Counter. Cannons response was yes. 200ft will give a true count and not a problem. Anything 200-400 ft it will read accurately was his response. I thought I'd pass this along. I never considered the counter aspect.
