  1. I use brown sugar and salt. Good video on YouTube smokehouse products. Tastes great. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Missing Fisherman Found Dead

    they were leaking around the fitting. I loosened them and put 5200 sealant around them and tightened them back up. I agree, I really don't want water sitting in there. Right now, after the repair i get no water.

    My front bilge is automatic and it never kicked on. The rear is manual and it would only get about 1/2 inch deep back there, too low for the bilge pump.

    The Grady White I just bought has 4 thru Hull fittings that are below or even with the waterline. Two for wash down, and two for the live/wells. It was taking on 5 to 10 gallons every time we went fishing. I found it was the thru hull fittings leaking, the two on the left side.My worry now, after reading this, is that if they fail, or the hose fails, I would have a real emergency. Do I really meed them? Probably not. I could wash everything down into the belly and let it drain out the boat plug hole in the transom. Maybe I will insert plugs in all of them, eliminating the hoses. None of mine have check valves. 1982 Grady.
  5. Missing Fisherman Found Dead

    This is really sad, and odd. You never know when you will end up in the water. One day while motoring out I smelled a plastic burning smell. The trolling motor starter wire chaffed and shorted out. Not fused. Wires were burning. I got it out with fire extinguisher. Scary. Needless to say every wire now had a abfuse and I installed a master cut out to kill all power. But we Always wear life life jackets, even when it is flat calm and 80 degrees. You never know when the transomwill crack, you will hit a floating refrigerator or log or a fire will force you to jump in. Get the life jackets that have the co2 cartridge. They aren't too cumbersome. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Thanks for the advice you provided on both Salmon and Walleye. We're going to Olcott this coming Sunday. Looks like best day of weekend. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Last trip of the season

    Nice report, I enjoyed reading it. It's common I guess when you take young ones fishing, to get nervous when they aren't catching and they are losing interest. It is for me anyways. It's great when you have a good day, the fishing bug is planted. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Thanks for the report Bob. We spent Sat and Sunday off catt Creek in lake Erie, got 33 walleyes. I'm torn between Walleye and Salmon, nice problem to have! Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Boat and trailer mods

    I bought a kicker for my new boat, and unfortunately it does not have a charging system. It's a 2015 tohatsu 9.8. but, my boat has two deep cycle batteries that can be selected in parallel via a switch. I have trolled with my autopilot for 6 hours many times with no problems yet. I always charge both batteries the night before. Solar may be a good option, but so far not necessary. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  14. Run UV spoon colors or non UV spoon colors

    Ok, so since we can't see UV, is the paint used on UV spoons actually a NEON Color? Or are they spraying on paint that has a UV color, that we can't see.....so is the paint like a water color, clear to us? I'm unclear on this. Also, since UV is on the blue/violate end, are all UV lures bluish/ violet in appearance, to the fish, since we can't see it. I guess we will never know what they see, just use it and see if it works. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. I hope I described this okay. Basically, I use 30 or 40 lb floro after the diver. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
