  1. One of the most comprehsive free summaries regarding copper line fishing thanks to a great local fishing guide, Rob Westcott from the Legacy:
  2. Congratulations Chris! I know it is both sweet and sour. Sent from my SM-G975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Good catch, nookchasen. You are correct (as expected for a pro staff). The lack of a "center hole" on the tail combined with "round reflective scales" instead of the elongated reflector scales indicate Koyote. Good news, many think they are probably better than the sharks anyway.

  5. I heard some bad things about the Panther 4 (not all bad, but enough) and was not willing to take the risk.The cheapest price I could find for the Powertran TAILFIN 8001 was $859.99 and for the iTroll it was $349.99. I paid the extra $90 for the Hunt mode upgrade on the iTroll. This software upgrade allows the iTroll to speed up and slow down in increments, incrments are user settable. You know how guys say they use "S" turns to slow down and speed up their inside and outside lures? This does the same thing automatically but in a straight line (no risk of tangled gear). it looks like the Powertran went up to $899: https://www.boatownersworld.com/powrtran-tailfin-kicker-steering-system.html
  6. Nice looking rig. I am waiting for this virus thing to pass so I can pick up my '86 Sportcraft Fisherman 250 hardtop. Looks very similar to yours. I am a newb but based on the recommendations on LOU, I bought a Honda 9.9hp from Outboards Online, a Powertran Tailfin and iTroll from Boat Owners World. Not cheap but less expensive than some other choices and more robust than cheaper options. No install yet or time on the water so we will see. Good luck.
  7. Thanks much, but truth be told...I caught this 24lber and about 12 more big salmon and 6 steelhead Aug 24, 2018 fishing on a charter with Legacy Rob. That day has changed my life. I have been a fisherman my whole life but never took advantage of one of the best fisheries in the nation right here in my "own backyard" (due to ignorance, not apathy). I will be picking up my Sportcraft 250 in 3 weeks from Rustyhook1971 after spending two years trying to turn an 18ft bowrider into a salmon fishing machine. Not so much. Since that day (actually two years prior) I have visited this site more or less on a daily basis in order to learn from a talented group of fishermen (and women). The 2020 Niagara salmon school was a big help along with the series by Dan Keating. Now it comes down to some serious sea time, putting it to use, taking notes, and the school of hard knocks. Tight lines to you this season!
  8. Awesome job Doc and crew! Can you share your technique for us newbies? Thanks for the report!
  9. How much are you asking for the dog? A real cutie! Sent from my SM-G975U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  11. "Weekend worrier" or "weekend warrior"...they both work! Have fun at the show
  12. Good info guys! Many things to consider...
  13. I need to get a kicker this year as well and I am wondering why I don't hear anything about Yamaha being thrown into the mix. Thinking of 9.9 hi thrust with tilt. Any opinions or valuable information?
