  1. This can also happen spooling it up if you let the line reel on the reel after it goes inside of the level wind. This gets the level wind out of line with the line on the spool easiest way to fix this is to put a good size sinker on it and the next time you go out let the line out way past where you will ever have a fish pull the drag out so say like 600 feet or so on your counter ..and then reel it back in that puts good tension on the line and saves you trying to do it at home.

  2. Are they the old all black 47lc's or one of the newer models..have you tried to loosen the spool tension knob? It's like a cast control on a reg bait casting reel, it puts friction on the end of the shafts. It can make them reel harder don't back it off to much just a little. Try that and see if it changes anything Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  8. Mine are older they were made by anglers choice. I used to be a manufacturer rep for them in the early 90's and had a few sets of them around left over. I am on my last set and I have to do a repair to one of them right now. But any ones work. Biggest trick is to hook them close to the bow, always run one on each side so the boat tracks straight. And keep a rear line on them that is fairly tight. That is what keeps them from wondering under the boat , or off to the side. I have mine set so they are just a little past half way back my boat foot when they are in the water. And the back line is hooked to the rear cleat, it keeps the tension on them and it makes them easy to lift out of the water. The rear rope attachment is what let loose on mine I put a couple pics of how they hang and the one that's blown up I am fixing Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. That's what I run . I have a 19 foot boat and run bags all the time. And yes my i pilot does just fine. The bags to me make the boat handle better I run mine even in to the wind just speed motor up . It helps you have more control. I drive all the time with only my trolling motor and it does a great job. Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Check the adjustment on the shift linkage..If it's going all the way in forward gear, and you have nothing then you have a lower unit gear problem. Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  12. You can get by the dredge no problem. And the state launch is still open and not charging for the rest of the year starting 9/20. Also casting is not that effected by the dredge they only work during the day and they can't be every where. Pick the side they are not working on and fish. It needed to be dredged how do they do that and keep everyone happy? Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  14. The part number is a sf403 10 and they are normally about $30 can't go wrong Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Best affordable wire diver rod is the eagle claw 10 diver rod. I fish alot alone and no problem to handle solo .. they are soft very forgiving ..and they are not to expensive ..add a twilly tip and your set for life. I have a pair from the 80's I finally retired them bc the foam handles were falling apart from the rod holders. The new ones have a harder plastic behind the reel seat, makes then come out of rod holders easier, and they will last for ever. Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
