    X4d vs XD fish hawk

    X3 on Northwoods. Very nice people Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Just be prepared for mistakes to happen because they do. You are never going to net ever fish. My kids have taught me to relax while family fishing. It’s not a competition and we don’t live a subsistence life style. Plenty of food at home, don’t need that fish so we can eat dinner. I have a great story I will share, I take my daughter out for her first trolling experience. Rigger pops and she is reeling in a monster lake trout. I was so excited for her to reel in this monster for her first fish. She brings the fish to back of the boat, I go to net the fish and I drop the brand new net I just bought. I start yelling and at that very moment the spoon rips out of the laker’s mouth and lands into the net, saving my brand new net. I was happy that my net is saved but I then turn around to see my daughter crying because she thought she made a mistake. I reassured her that it was totally my fault and not hers. After I wipe away some tears, she tells me that it will be ok, we will catch that fish next time. She brought the joy of fishing back to my boat. We did catch 9 other fish that day. So remember to make it fun. I have a lot of buddies that tell me horror stories of when they were young and being forced to go trolling with their dads. Make it fun and have you will have a fishing buddy for life. Good luck Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Third downrigger location?

    Thanks for the advice all. It is greatly appreciated. I will do some measurements before the install to make sure that boom will be long enough. If not I will move riggers around and put an adjustable boom rigger on the back. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Third downrigger location?

    I don’t plan on putting kicker on. I do have a fish hawk on starboard side. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. I need some advice to the location to mount my third downrigger. I have an outboard motor with no trolling motor. I have a small swim platform on the starboard side. The rigger boom is 3’ Long. Do I mount the third rigger on the back of the boat on the port side? If so will the rigger on the back interfere with netting fish? I know you all have a wealth of knowledge and experience. I thought I ask before I start drilling holes in my boat. All Day Long

    Downrigger stacking, help

    It’s all about personal preference and type of riggers you use. Stackers are the cheapest part of trolling. So grab one or two of each and try them out. If you want to pay shipping or meet up, I would donate a couple to you. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. I would assume shipping the mast would be quite expensive. I will pass. Wish you were closer to me. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
