  1. Shower curtain hooks is there a better way?
  2. I abs love Scotty power grip plus release but they pop off the planer line and are gone to the bottom of the lake I have tried everything to prevent it from happening but keep losing them at 8 dollars a piece I’m done. Any advice on new release they will hold up to 500 copper! Thank you!
  3. I posted a Oswego report but fished mostly torwards Mexico brown trout we’re hitting really well from high rocks to catfish creek 55-80fow. There were tons on 2yr old salmon around out deep straight north of the plant 400-550 fow found a warm down temp and had non stop salmon action with a few bigger ones mixed in. Did not target lake trout at all
  4. Started in right this morning spent til noon trolling between catfish creek and the high rocks 40-70 fow 40 foot rigger with stingray mtdew scum line and 8 color down the chute stood out 8 color had a wierd pink and white stinger copper back not sure of the name. At noon started tolling north from the plant and had a few quiet hours until 400 fow just south of the Canada line tripled on kings all 2 year olds 400 copper 300 copper and 160 diver 2 meat 1 mag spoon. Lots of boats working in close
  5. It’s super Smokey here in nepa from Canada wildfires,planning on coming up to east end this weekend had it been smokey on the lake?
  6. Would like to get in touch boat was at wrights landing in Oswego. Thank you!!
  7. Thank you for the report! Sounds like they were just picky today what did you run for baits?
  8. Thank you guys the last few years have been slow for kings on the east end, prior to that I remember kings being around as early as the beginning of may although scatterd but have got a few kings in the past few years around this time.
  9. Heading out Friday to Sunday will launch outa wrights. Gonna look for kings but will spend some time fishing browns as well have not seen anything posted from the east end really. Thank you guys
  10. So my boat always steered flawless 2002 5.7 merccruiser with power assist. So I was cleaning everything in the back and greasing and I took out the pin that holds the steering cable to the assist and I read that when re installed the flats on the assist arm must be vertical. I put a wrench on the steering cable to turn it slightly so the flats are facing up and it made it extremely hard to turn esp right. Went back n and messed with it turned the steering cable slightly diff it loosend it up perfectly. But it’s very little effort the jam nut on the steering cable can be moved and m afraid it’s going to go back the the hard position.. when it’s in the hard position you can hear fluid being forced back through when turning right!! This is hard to explain as I’m not really familiar with the setup but anyone who’s worked on them before?
  11. 2 years ago I started running rotella t-6 5w40 changing at 100 hours on my 5.7 merc last year half way through I switched to same oil but in 1540. Curious to see if anyone has ever pulled a oil sample running this oil? Or what everyone feels is the best oil to run.
  12. What are my options? Do I have to use a autopilot for the cable side or can a hydrolic unit be tapped into the power assist side? If it helps it’s a merccruiser 5.7 with the power assist
  13. Anyone have any idea what ito flies is up to I used to order direct off there website and cannot find it anymore.. also very unfortunate with bayrat glad I have a cpl that should last a while
  14. So if I’m understanding the question correctly you will want to let out all your leadcore and I usually go 5 feet or so past the knot to the mainline then clip in my board release. Letting out more will throw off the depth your intending to reach with the amount of leadcore out imo. I usually run a 25-30 ft flouro leader to my lure and use 30lb-50lb power pro mainline to the board it’s thinner than mono and catches way less wind to the board
  15. Ok so totally not a joke but I’ve read lampreys are actually a delicacy in some parts of the world. Actually seen studies where they ship Great Lakes lamprey to these areas to see how they taste compared to local ones, never tried one but if I can get past the looks of them I love eel… anyone ever try one?!?
  16. Mine did it out of no where my sonar started interfering with it shut the 50khz garmin off and used my 83/200 low rance the rest of the day no more issues and that’s after 2 years of using the 50 kHz and fish hawk together with no issues
  17. Not really kinda sporadic they were toughhhh last weekend super picky and chalked full of big bait
  18. Heading home now did okay this weekend but fish were scattered. Lots of guys were making like crazy in 90-100 but they wouldn’t bite. We caught fish anywhere from 115 to 500 but never got on them. Flasher flys we’re best followed by spoons. Meat took a few but slower. 3 4 and 500 copper all went dipseys went but riggers were slow. 80-90 foot puts u in temp but most of a fish came in the upper temp range
  19. Came up for the weekend and fairly certain we were the only boat on the lake Saturday morning til about 1 pm lol. Got out at 530 am to a angry lake and stiff north wind. Took a slow ride to 180 and set up on a south west troll. Had our first fish on around 8 in 200fow on a 155 diver with a mag spoon would end up taking 4 more 15-18lb kings on that same diver and spoon anywhere out to 180 out on the wire. Couldn’t get a 10 color or 300 copper to go all day and just 1 smaller king coming of a 55 rigger with another mag spoon. Got off the water for 5. Sunday the fish were def more scattered but still around went straight out of wrights to 150fow and pointed at the plant couldn’t get much going early so we put down some cut bait rigs and a 180 diver took a 20lb king and a smaller king. 300 copper with a mag spoon had a beast on but it broke off halfway down the leader after running about 250 feet on the strike gained on it a bit then it just took back off and never stopped. Had a lot of high marks all weekend in the 40-55 foot range and sunday a lot of kings went deep marked a lot down 150 over 200 fow in 41 degree water. Good weekend be back in a few weeks
  20. I like fixed using Scotty stacker release. I usually run 10-15ft above the ball. Only problem I’ve run into every now and then when I fish takes the lower line it will come up and catch the cheater line
  21. I’ve had water come back in thru bilge pump discharge if your hoses aren’t mounted high enough
  22. Trolled east outa wrights 20-50 fow 3 color hit a few 30 rigger and 50 or so dipsey took fish all browns went out lookin for kings around 3 trolled 100 to 259 with 2 shaker kings to show for it. Back out tomorrow if anyone has any intell!
  23. Sandy creek or sandy pond? Guessing you were on the west end.
