  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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!

  4. 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
  5. 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!
  6. 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
  7. Thank you very much for the kind replies! Looks like the itroll is the way to go! Mike
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. It can do both! The handle when collapsed (telescopic) is 6’ long! Can be detached or slid into the net. Very solid net! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Beckman makes a great net with a 9’ extension handle, oversized teardrop shaped hoop (31” x 36”) and 52” basket. Fully extended it gives you a 13’ reach! I’ve got two, one for a back up and the biggest Kings disappear inside of it! [emoji2] Get it from Fish USA! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Crazy Alberto Knot! Super simple, Crazy Strong! Remove about 4” of Lead and the empty sheath handles just like braid in the video! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Jigstick, I run a GARMIN 942xs with a mid level CHIRP transducer 80-135 kHz. Started out using it in CHIRP mode only but as of late, use it mostly in the fixed 80kHz frequency only and it performs better when trolling. In addition, it picks up my Rigger weights at all depths. They aren’t nearly as solid and I lose them beyond 80’ down in CHIRP mode. Considering adding a 50/200 transducer since I’m only trolling Lake O.

  14. 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!
