  1. Sweet. Love seeing the kids with fish. Sent from my LG-H820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Buy the ones that have the closed eye or use some thin wire to twist around the bend. It will keep your leader from sliding down the frame. Not a cure all but helps. Sent from my LG-H820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. I saw one cross the road Thursday on otisco road. Sent from my LG-H820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Wow lots of info there . thanks . after the spark plug change its running better than it did when it was brand new. I think I my have had a bad plugs right from the start. I'm getting 300 to 400 more rpm now. I trolled today and it ran fine and didn't show any of the problems i had before. I wish I could get nonethondal 87 but only the 91 around here is nonethonal. Thanks again for all the info Sent from my LG-H820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. After trolling last week for a few hours it wouldn't go back to full power. Long story but end result was plugs . wondering if I should just use 87 octane with startron instead of the 91 non-ethonal. Should not burn up a set of plugs on a new motor with less than 25 hours on it. Sent from my LG-H820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. i been researching online and have a couple things to try. its the vibration that bugs me the most. im going to try trimming it up off the stops when trolling in hopes that it wont send the vibration through the rest of the boat. other options i found are trolling plates and drift socks which neither i want to do. i got enough going on while on the water trying to learn this stuff. lol
  7. So i have a brand new 18ft Bassbuggy pontoon. When I bought it They said it would troll down fine. I can get down to the speed i want but it runs like crap after about 10 min. I called tracker in Auburn and they told me I needed to change the pitch of my prob to lower the rpm? Help me wrap my head around this . its not that I need to go slower I csn get it right down to 1.6 even but i like to troll at around 2.2 to 2.5. Sometimes when trolling for musky i go around 3.5 and it runs better there but still seems like it "loads up" like my old 2 stroke used to. Why would changing prop to lower my rpm help my motor run better? I don't mind buying a new prop if I need to but don't want to spend money and lose top end (only goes 18 mph now lol) if it won't help me. Sent from my LG-H820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  10. I used to fish Hammond. Switched to cowy to get away from the pleasure boaters. No place to hide from them there. Sent from my LG-H820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Pure in there also Sent from my LG-H820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  13. That used to be our "home" lake. We tent camped there 7 or 8 times a year for the last 6 or 7 years. It is a weird lake. There are some huge fish on there but sometime you can't get anything going. We always did better there trolling that casting. The only fish we ever had that I'm sure was over 50 came in front if the upper swim area. Broke the net and we never got to boat it. That was a pure. There are huge tigers in there also. Down by the dam was always most productive for us though. Did you see any tigers swinging on top. Sometimes we would see 3 or 4 a day. Sent from my LG-H820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. I can't get the pic to work. Its a" bass pro power plus trophy class trolling casting rod. " I want to use it for inline boards and maybe the small dipseys. Sent from my LG-H820 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
