  1. Make sure when you strip black coating off rigger cable that you take a razor blade and scrape off clear coating that is on copper wire then solder electrical connector to end then attach the bolt the bolt.
  2. Thanks for the input guys ran the boat and tracked pretty well with kicker locked straight ahead . I figure in the wind and chop my be a little harder to control so decided to order a Talfin electro steer from powtran and use a wireless remote in conjunction with the helm .
  3. Looking for opinion on Panther t5 remote steering for kicker motor . Setting up a new pursuit 2865 with Volvo Penta outdrive and 9.9 Yamaha outboard and cannot link together do to offset. Does anyone use a t5 electro steer and do you like it or is steering with a remote a pain in the ass .
  4. Great catch please do your self and the fish a favor as the water gets warmer it is almost impossible to get released Lakers to go back down to depth . Buy yourself a sequelizer of Amazon for around 50 bucks and send them back down to the thermocline. I hate when I release a fish and do to air and heat exhaustion that can't go back down . Just set depth on sequelizer and send down on rigger it releases at set depth . Great job on some nice Lakers !👍
  5. 50 degree surface temp I would say the boy is nuts . Lol
  6. Caught 31 fish in a day and a half out of Mexico over a dozen lampreys on them . That's more than last three years combined not as good sign for things to come.
  7. I have had multiple slide divers cut two different brands of braid off very disappointing as they do catch fish but can't justify throwing 25 bucks away every other trip .
  8. Thanks everyone for the advice going to make some calls between buying a bigger boat and the charter insurance thing's are adding up fast.
  9. Looking for suggestions on insurance for a charter boat holding oupv 6 pack license. Just received this year's quote went up by 200.00 bucks for just liability insurance at this point its getting out of hand . Any info would be greatly appreciated.
  10. How bad was the oil spill? 😟
  11. I always run 4 riggers 2 off the corners at 45 degrees and 2 off the sides at 90 degrees . The 2 off the sides have wingers that cause them to glide away from the boat . I can still add in dipseys and boards without issues.
  12. Use a Duramax swivel 8 ft up leader and a good duolock snap and your good to go.
  13. Good luck hope you snap out of it not everyone has a good experience with it .
  14. Hello and merry Christmas to all looking at buying a 25 foot camper that appears to be a great deal . I am afraid that if I can't find a reasonable place to put it for the season say may through September near Oswego / mexico that it won't get used . Anyone have any recommendations on reasonable priced campgrounds or someone with private property that would rent a spot for a fair price to a respectable person . I fish alot out of Oswego so would be nice to have a place to stay other then the cabin of my boat . Thanks
  15. Both fish relate to temp breaks that you can see and record on the surface it's like a vertical wall in the water fish along it and find witch side the fish like best .Then there's the thermal bar that's horizontal in the water when lake sets up fish above,in and below it .
  16. I dubbed my buddy the Cisco kid after he caught 2 of them.
  17. Had higher hopes for first trip to Oswego this year fished all over the inshore for browns from alcan to Ford shoals including the harbor.Was pretty tough fishing and combat fishing the harbor was a joke people really need to get a clue about working a trolling pattern with the rest of the fleet. Ended up landing 2 Brown biggest was10 lbs a 15 lb laker 2 whitefish and a 12lb sheephead .My buddy was bummed when he learned the monster Brown he was fighting was a sheephead.😁 All fish where caught off maglips off boards.5
  18. 2005 Karavan KKRT 4800 dual axle boat trailer in good condition for sale. All lights. Rollers, bearings and tires in good condition and no repairs needed. Asking $1150.00. Call or text Eric at 518-481-7502 for quickest response as I don't check LOU regularly.
  19. Just got 4 new hot fish 10 inch fish style flashers video I saw looked like the had a nice roll and kick to them they look great as well.
  20. They have there place I have caught many a laker on a spoon behind them placed above the rigger ball. Also one day fishing for kings out of Henderson solo the fish were turned off i put verticals on both riggers with spoons 15 and 25 back and game on .A short time later a boat passed by and shouted you do realize your the only boat out hear catching fish . I was able to pick up 5 matures in 2 hours due to them pulling fish off the bottom .Like so many other things need to let them tell you what they want but you will never know if you don't try them .
  21. A little advice if your in really skinny water say 12 feet and under run all sticks so if you hang bottom or hook up when you slow down or stop all your baits will float up and it will save on losing tackle to the bottom.
  22. I would install a quality brass thru hull raw water pickup made of brass and a brass ball valve shut off .
