  1. You can buy with confidence from Terry, he is meticulous with his equipment!
  2. You are right on...From Russell Station heading west we picked up 2 kings today...Didn't boat either of them but that's another story...had a few times where the screen looked good, suspended fish 75-90 over 150-160 FOW.
  3. Nice morning on a flat lake, started out in 140 FOW heading northwest from Russell Station. Picked up a laker on a green flasher fly dipsey, then lost 2 kings in a row (1 right at the boat due to my poor net skills...) 1 king hit on a black and green NK28, the other hit on a black spin doctor fly combo on the other dipsey. Got another laker on the green fly dipsey again, down 70 feet. So 2 for 4 but losing those 2 kings hurts...
  4. Turns out they were just really dry...A little white lithium on the dogs and WD40 in the pivots and they ratchet like new! Thanks, for all the feedback.
  5. Thanks for the update, I fish out of I Bay too from Mayer's, guess I gotta get deeper than 150'. Gonna try today after work, ch 68, boat is Catch U Later on VHF...
  6. Ok thanks for the advice, I will get them lubed up.
  7. Over the winter I bought 2 Berts ratcheting rod holders from someone on LOU, and I noticed last week while fishing that they don't pull up with a 1-hand retrieve like my other 2 do. You have to pull the lever to get the rod holder to raise up. Is something wrong with them or are there 2 different designs/models out there? The look exactly the same...
  8. Must be the season...This bird was the only thing that came onto my boat this morning off I Bay...Marking them at 65-75 FOW but no hits...
  9. Not a lot of action this morning for us, east wind and bright sunshine. Got 1 nice brown still hanging around in 25 FOW by Shipbuilders, on a silver and green Rapala. Tried out deep about 65 FOW, marking a lot but only picked up 1 king on a black and glow NK magnum. Still a great day fishing with my son, cant beat it!
  10. I know its a couple days past, but the fishing heading east from I Bay has been great so far this year...20 to 30 FOW heading east brought in the browns, then heading back west we picked up some nice kings and browns, we went 8 for 13 overall, losing a very nice Atlantic right at the boat. We were more in the pea soup water than following any mud lines, and orange and mixed veggies NK28's on 1 color of lead were the best producers. The boys doubled up twice, the second time was a PB brown for Robbie! I have never netted 2 fish at 1 time, that was fun LOL...Love seeing the kids catching fish...
  11. If you have a chance could you post a couple pics? Thanks, Mike
  12. Thanks that could work...Did you mount it directly to the boats bench seat or did you put some wood in between the seat and the slide?
  13. Yes there is foam under the aluminum bench seat so i have stayed away from drilling into that so far. So you are thinking a piece of 3/4" plywood across the top, mounted to the angled seat supports, and then attach the seat to the plywood? That is a good idea, I think I have some leftover marine plywood i could try that out. Thanks for the idea!
  14. I have a seat mounted to the clamp style bracket that I have been using for the last couple of years on my 12' aluminum boat. I have tried adding ropes, ratchet straps, etc to the bottom of the clamps looped under the bench seat, and nothing will hold the seat tightly to the aluminum bench seat. I always tighten the nuts down on the clamp as tight as I can before adding the ropes, straps, etc, and the seat still comes loose. Looking for some other mounting ideas/techniques I can try...
  15. How do you like those down east rod holders? Ive been thinking about getting some for my 12' aluminum boat...
  16. I would, there 2 ppl ahead of you. If they dont take it I will let you know.
  17. Yeah thats exactly right! Gotta know how the tri beam transducer works. There was also something about if the fish image was solid black or an outline...It was pretty high-tech in 2002!
  18. Humminbird 300TX Tri Beam fish finder, works as it should. I had this mounted on my 12' aluminum boat, but I got a Lowrance Elite 4 ice fishing unit last year, and added a boat transducer so I no longer need the Humminbird. I bought this new in 2002, and it has always worked great. Has speed and surface temp, definitely old school but if you need something basic this will do the trick! Still have the manual too. PM me if you want it, I will leave it in a box on my front porch.
