  2. It was cheaper and less aggravating to buy a used jet ski trailer and extend the tongue for my square back canoe . This was in PA. They wanted serial numbers off the axel, GVW of axel, pictures,inspection, and $79 for title. I got a used jet ski trailer for $125 it needed tires and $30 for tubing. All said and done I didn’t have more than $200 into it. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  3. Just last month I purchased die cuts to upgrade flashers and dodgers from Mad River he will work with you on quantity and has a lot more colors available including super glows and plasma. I used heat gun and denatured alcohol to remove old tape. Buffed the dodgers on wheel buffer almost back to their new luster. Added new tape with added extras dots, ladder backs, and glow tape. I made 5 old flashers into the new trending one that cost $18 for a couple dollars and put life back into a dozen dodgers. Fast and reasonable shipping. I have about 2 dozen spoons that need some bling. Saving them for the winter Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Good read! I could not imagine a 80lb king on a 400 copper everyone in the boat would have a sore arms! In six years the biggest over the rail 24.5lbs and that was a on 7 color. Still remember the early 90’s when you get a 30+ at least ever other season Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. Buy a Fish Hawk TD to come up with your own depth chart with your variables. I spent 6 hrs on the water coming up with my depth chart and variables. Speed, outward dive setting, flasher type and size, spoon size, and then I picked up 2 John King diver disc weights which made my dipsy’s really dive my wire angle is almost 45 degrees. Take a kid with you that likes reel by the 15th time reeling in his arm was burning away but didn’t care. I told him practice makes perfect. Its was cheaper than buying the precision trollers bible and the wire was so nice and tight on the reel could of fit another 100ft Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. "Preachers Camp" i didnt know Pap you were a Beltzville Boy? Trolling for stripers or eyes? I havent been down there in 10 years since I almost got sideswiped by a rental boat. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  8. If you run any OB 2 or 4 stroke at idle 75% of the time run a hotter plug or advance timing. I have a 1995 merc 9.9 for a kicker/ jon boat motor. I run stock plugs when shes on the jon and 2 ranges higher when she kicks Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Do most of you spool your own reels with the reverse method. Leader copper braid or use clip on the rod line counter? I got a digital line counter on eBay that’s only 4 1/2 inches in 100 ft paid $26. It works very well when I re-spooled my cores and wire divers. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  10. In the video by torpedo it looks pretty coil free. I have their wire on my diver rods and have great success with it. I was old school with my spread 4 riggers now run 2 with up to 4 wire dipsy and long cores on boards. This year if I had $ 20 for ever time I heard 300 copper on fire, only rod we moved was 400 copper on the radio I’d have enough money to buy everything at once.

  11. Looking to add 8 coppers rods to my spread. I was going to go with Okuma convector high speed reels matched with the Okuma GLT lead core/copper rods 8’6” and run them off my big boards. I have several questions? I’m going to run 100&150 on 30 size reel,200,250,300 on 45 size reel with the 300 having about 350ft of backing and 350,400,450 on 55. I was going to use 65lb braid. I really don’t see the need for 600+ft of backing? Is it really worth the money for the high speed reels ? What is the best release for the braid and will take the weight of a 450 with FF combo and 11” paddle with Twinkie rig? I’m most likely going with Atomik copper 2000ft bulk spool or the weighted steel line that suppose to be extremely coil resistant? Longer rods? I am willing to spend 1k for the copper in my spread but don’t want to regret something I overlooked trying to save dimes on dollars. I’m a ebay buyer cause there is no place local to even get that gear or advice. Thank you for your input. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. I would try the hole thats a 1000 yards straight out of the shoot almost in line of the break wall
  13. Heading up Friday night for the last hurrah. Does anyone think the Mexican Armada will be full fleet of "fish holes" in front of river or most of them pulled out after labor day? Taking a inexpirenced crew and I have never fished this late my july and august trips were postponed due to back surgery

  15. I lost a $70 net last year. This year I added a 2ft piece of a pool noodle floaty looks a little gay but it keeps it afloat. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
