  1. I have the Rivers West Kokanee Bib and Jacket. The set runs anywhere from $250 to $280 depending on where you buy it. It’s been an excellent foul weather set and IMO is right up there with the way more expensive offerings from Cabelas and/or BPS! Very compressible too and takes up very little room!

  2. For anyone who is running Torpedo Weighted Steel line, what Rods are you using with it? Is a Twilli Tip required? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. It is my understanding that you have to periodically make throttle adjustments in situations like a current or direction of troll change. I’m gathering that these units, at least in the case of the Trollmaster or Control King, they allow minute/fine throttle adjustments that you would not be able to achieve with just the tiller or helm throttle control. I’ve decided to go with the TM as I don’t need the additional programming features offered by the itroll. I just need precise throttle control and for that I don’t need to spend 1.5 x more on an itroll. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. While we’re on the subject of copper, I tried putting 500’ of 45# copper on a Seagate 60. I used 50# PP backing and spooled on the equivalent of 75 passes of the level wind guide. By time I was done, the reel was well beyond capacity, so much so that the last 30-40’ of copper was very difficult to reel in. Any suggestions out there for a different reel better suited for a 500 and even a 550 and 600 copper? Thanks again! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Thanks for the feedback fellas! Here’s the deal, I’ve got copper pairs from 100’s up to 400’s then singles in 350, 450 and 500. Plus, LC pairs from 1-10 colors. I acquired 2 Saltist 50 LW and a Tekota 700 LW and am trying to figure out what to do with them! I also have 4 salmon Rigger Rods set up with Saltist 40’s so im set there as well! Also have 2 pair of wire diver rods so that base is covered! Was an impulse buy on those 50’s and the 700, good deal I couldn’t pass up!

  6. Is a 20 color LC set up worthwhile for trolling or do you reach a point where you can only get so deep that it becomes a waste to add any more than 10 colors? Thanks-Mike Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I fish Lake George and Champlain often and yanking LC is by far, my most productive technique for lakers. I keep meaning to try it on Lake Ontario but I’m always getting distracted by the salmon and browns! I use mainly Sutton Flutter spoons, size 71 for lakes with a smelt forage base and 72’s or 38’s for lakes with Alewives. Tons of fun and the hits can be pretty exciting!! Can’t imagine what a hit from a King would feel like! [emoji2] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Let’s hope not! It’s 3 years old already and so far so good! And if it does, I’ll break down and spend another $4 bucks for two new ones! [emoji2] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Not sure what to call this clamp but I got it at Home Depot along with the spring and eye bolt and clamped it on to the aluminum frame on the boat. I used some strips of tire inner tube to line the inside of the clamp to prevent it from slipping! Works fantastic for pulling my Otters!

  10. I have a similar main motor/kicker motor positioning layout with my kicker on a Panther adjustable mount. I went with the EZ Steer system and ordered the Extra Long connector rod to tie both motors together. Works quite well with no issues. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Per Shawn’s comment, failed to mention that part about Blood Run’s modification to the TX-44’s. Makes a significant difference when pulling copper! Thanks!
  12. Church Tackle TX-44’s have worked well for us up to 400 Coppers. Definitely upgrade the plastic spring loaded release pins to the stainless steel variety available from Blood Run Tackle. The plastic pins develop wear grooves and eventually break. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Thank you very much for the kind replies! Looks like the itroll is the way to go! Mike
  14. Looking to add a Trollmaster kicker motor controller to my boat. Who uses one (or similar) and is it worth the investment? I troll exclusively on Lake Ontario and run a 9.9 Yamaha high thrust kicker in my 21’ Walkaround. Thanks for any advice! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Jig, this is what I use on my GARMIN. It’s paired with a Medium CHIRP 80-135kHz transducer. For trolling I set it to straight 80kHz and it does a fantastic job. Took me a while to understand all of the features of this transducer but got it figured out. As Yankee states, CHIRP is good for the nice images but traditional frequencies work much better for trolling! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
