  1. Smart Troll

    Sorry, is this a temp probe, or speed control? Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Smart Troll

    I bought the iTroll system instead. I installed it lady fall and have not used it. I like the idea of the hunt mode, varying the speed automatically. That's what sold me on it. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Have you seen these?

    I tried the action disc with flasher flies a little last summer. Didn't catch anything but I cannot honestly say I have them an adequate Chance. I will try them again this summer. I also used a holographic attractor from bass pro. Low drag. Worked well for steel head. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Storing my boat outside in winter

    I use a hoop system made from PVC. Check it out on the "this old boat" forum. Working great. Lightweight and reusuable. But seriously if you want something quick to use for a day here and there through the winter, you'll need a carport type structure or party tent, etc. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Lowrance Autopilot

    Hardest thing to do during the install for me was to get all the air out of the system. Took me 3 days of working the thing. One problem I encountered was that the autopilot would move the steering wheel back and forth, but the motor would not move. This is why the air wouldn't come out. I finally had to make a small bracket to mount from the dashboard to the spoke on the wheel, to hold the wheel from moving. With the wheel pegged, the AP will move the motor. Once I figured this out, the bleeding happened much better! I made it quick disconnect with a pin, so its not a problem. I think it s because my steering pump is so old, the design. So regardless of which AP you get, you will find it is the best money you will spend on equip for the boat.
  6. Lowrance Autopilot

    I bought a Lowrance Outboard autopilot with an HDS 7 back in July. I love them. Both worked great the rest of the summer. The autopilot works flawlessy for trolling at 1 to 3 mph. Has heading mode, zig zag, sporal, S turn, waypoint, depth hold etc. would never want to fish without it now
  7. What kind of net ?

    Bob, what length handle did you order?
  8. Best electric down rigger?

    I have Canon Mag 10As. But check these out, very impressive and will handle 25 lb ball, $400 and change I think! http://www.magnum-metalz.com
  9. Niagara Fishing Show - Mark McClutchey Clinic

    How do I get a ticket, other than being one of the first to sign up at AA pro shop booth? Or is that the only way? I won't be there until Sunday.
  10. Cheap home built throttle control.

    Ok, I ended up buying an iTroll. Hooked it up, but never got to try it.
  11. My Hoop System for Winter Boat covering.

    I constructed a reusuable hoop system for covering my 22' boat this year. It's working great so far 1. Get 3/4 inch PVC conduit. 10 feet long. Get enough to make a hoop each 12 inches along the gunwales. 2. Get enough tees for each end of the hoop. 3. Make a section of PVC, to attach to each top of the gunwale with a tee every 12 inches. 4. Install the side pieces. 5. Install one end of the hoop PVC into a tee, and bend it in to a hoop, and insert the other end into the opposite tee 6 run a piece of PVC along the top of the hoops. Drill a hole through this piece, and each hoop, and install a tie wrap. This holds the 12 inch spacing. See pictures.

  13. Walleye fishing in the province of Quebec

    Father in law keeps talking about us going way up into Canada to fish for walleyes, something they have done a few times. But, seems a waste of time and previous vacation days to me. In two days this summer we caught 33 nice walleyes. On Erie. They were delicious. And, I got to enjoy using and learning to use my own boat, my own equipment. Why would I go 500 miles north, gorge myself on fish, and come home with 6 fish after burning up a week's vacation that I won't be able to use for deer hunting? We have plenty of fun right here on Erie and Ontario. But, to each his own. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Help identifying tracks...

    I have a similar story, but I trapped Fox, and Beaver. Then I went coon hunting at night! I got $50 for red fox, and up to $60 for Beaver. Coons were up to $35. My dad paid for Christmas for us 6 kids, by trapping mink and rats. He is 80 now, and is trapping a little this year, got 6 rats. Me, I haven't trapped for many years now, except for the coons and woodchcks in my yard.
  15. calling all dogs

    So, do you carry both the shotgun and rifle, to your calling site,? And, do you use a blind? Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
