  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

  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
  16. Way back I had problems with one type of cannon ball swimming like that. I loved them because they were a slim ball type.. I used walker releases and they did it them I used pinch pads attached to the ball and they did not ... So my fix was a small piece of parachute cord tired to the tail fin where the pinch pad release would go. It stopped it and I went back to my walker releases with no problem. If you love the weights maybe try that and see if it fixes yours too. Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Perch

    What body of water was that Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  23. Very cool ..great job Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  24. Biggest trick that time of year is the water is not set up ..so spread it out..short cores to riggers divers , cover water you.will catch fish on deepest set and on the highest line. Info best on spoons but also get fish on deep diving sticks on boards and always toss a flasher fly in the mix. Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  25. I have only seen one salmon on the scale over 40 and I used to weigh fish for the ESLO from 86 to 90. I know that's a short time but been fishing salmon since 77. The one I saw over 40 was an old couple named John and his wife Rita they were from down near jamestown and they came every fall for a month to troll in Oak Orchard for salmon. They caught it on a Pink Ping a tee lure right by way was the three bridges. I was fishing that day and had stopped at what was Hatch and Elam's just to shoot the **** like I did all the time since I was good friends with the owners. They brought the fish in and Chris Elam put it on the scale I forgot exactly what it was but it was mid 40's. Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
