    New Riggers

    I was in the same situation last year. I found a good deal on some cannon mag 5 st and a pair of the 16# torpedo downrigger weights. I love them. They are almost too fast. But whatever way you decide I would advise a downrigger ball snubber. I found out the hard way. Downrigger ball and probe ended up on the bottom of the lake in 100' of water the 1st time I use them Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Lake fishing on Saturday

    Dissapointed today. Made all the way down to the launch but last night some ice blew to the south shore. The harbor had too much to get out. From what I could tell it was 1/2" thick. Not worth it. Too bad cause the lake looked good. Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Lake fishing on Saturday

    With the winds being light on Saturday we want to chase some kings between olcott and the niagara river. Any advice on depths to start. With the cold water I would assume it would be a spoon program. Thanks for any help. This will be a first for this time of the year Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Weigh in

    I run them a couple different ways. If I'm running a spoon program I run 2 off the riggers and 2 off slide divers. If you want to run inline boards imo the easiest way would be the 50-50 snap weight method. Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Lowrance question

    There is a difference in color. Gen1 is a lighter gray. Gen2 is a dark gray almost black. Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Looking for kicker steering options

    I was looking at that but the way the arm came out I dont think I have enough room for that. For now I have the kicker mounted right to the transom. Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Looking for kicker steering options

    Thanks for all the input. I appreciate it Sent from my SM-G892A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. I looking for some affordable steering options. I have and older open now with a Minn Kota trolling motor on the front. I just bought an '02 Honda 8hp 4 stroke kicker. It is currently mounted to the top of the transom. Autopilots like the TR-1 aren't in the cards this year. I was looking into a ez steer or something like the troll master. What are my best options that's not going to kill my wallet. My biggest thing is wanting to control boat better than just the tiller handle but also want to steer with it if necessary.
