  1. I recently added the second keel and also added aluminum strapping to all the stress points to keep the hardware from pulling out of the foam material. So far, I’ve pulled 300 Coppers with them and they performed great! I use the small orange speed clips from Amish Outfitters and made a loop with 5 or 6 twists and snapped the braid on. Clips slide down the 500# Test Amish Spectra toe line very Nicely! Mike PS-Shout Out to Rich Nau from Praying Mantis Charters for recommending the Amish tow line!

  4. Update since last post, switched the line to Amish Outfiters 500# Test Spectra two line and made a slight adjustment to the harness angle on the boards and problems solved! Clips slide nicely down the line now! Thanks again for the advice! [emoji2] Mike Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Had great luck with the BJ Deeper Divers in chartreuse. Ran them off of 30lb Braide straight to the Diver and a 12# Fluoro leader around 7’ long. That set up took more shots than any of the other rigs on the boat for both browns and spring kings. In about 20 FOW, we ran them 40’ out on the line counter which gave us about a 15’ Dive. Worked fantastic especially in dirty water! Mike Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Going to give Slide Divers a try for salmon next weekend and need some advice as to how much lead length to use. Reels are spooled with 30# Braid and plan to splice in 30lb Mono in the recommended lead length advised and then a 7’ leader after the barrel swivel in 20# Fluoro for spoons. Thank You!

  8. Thank you to both of you for the helpful advice! Going to order the PP!! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. I’m using the stock line that came with the Big Jon reel. Orange line, I believe it’s 150lb Dacron. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Hi Guys, need some help with setting my lines on my Otter boards. Tried several different releases but all seem very sluggish getting them to slide easily down the tow line. The line reels and pulleys (Big Jon Manuals) are mounted on the top of my cockpit frame on my 21’ Walkaround and My Otters All have double keels and the angle of the board’s attachment line is tied per the recommended 9” font and 14” rear angle. I must be missing something. Any advice is greatly appreciated ! Thanks-Mike Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. I’m considering adding a Traxtech transom trolling bar across the back of my 21’ Hydrasports WA. I currently run two Cannon Digitroll 10’s mounted to tracks on both gunnels. Would like to add a 3rd DR to the spread and thinking the transom bar would be a less cluttered alternative. Boat is powered by a 150 HP outboard. Does anyone use such a system and what are the pros and cons? Thank you very much! -Mike https://www.walleyetacklestore.com/traxstech-removable-8-trolling-bar-with-two-4-1-2-reverse-risers-and-two-mt-6-end-caps-drbr-8-6/ Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. GARMIN GPS Map 942 XS with mid range 80-160 kHz Chirp Transducer. Little bit of everything on this screen....Lakers on bottom, bait ball, salmon in the riggers and steelhead/Browns above! [emoji2] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Recently picked up a Beckmann with a 6-9’ extension handle and 28” x 51” x 40” Net. When fully extended it gives you 13’ of reach! The biggest salmon disappear inside of it! Lol! Was $120 at Fish USA! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. I recently picked up and started using a Church Tackle Stern Planer and do exactly as you describe! It’s fantastic! I was just thinking about adding this Chute diver for another rod I the spread but, starting to think better of the idea! Thanks to everyone who took the time to answer, really appreciate all the advice! Mike
  15. I have an extra 8’ Wire Diver rod that I’d like to consider running on the “0” setting of a Mag Diver straight down out the chute between my 2 (only) corner riggers. Safe/Effective to do or asking for trouble? Thanks! Mike Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
