    Hi neighbor! You’re parked right next to me (Red 11) and I get to admire that awesome boat every time I’m up! Hope you’re having luck out there, been a tough couple weeks lately! Mike Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Green fish, here’s how I use my portable FF transducers on my rowboats. I have set up my X4D probe like this when I first bought it and in mid season like you and it worked fine. Just a wood worker clamp, a piece of 1/4” x 2” aluminum bar stock and a piece of lex. an Material (Trex works too) as a backer to mount the transducer. I just clamped it onto my transom of my boat and temporarily snaked the cable under the boat gunnel to the display. Worked great for the time being!

  3. Tekota 800 with 400 feet of 50# Power Pro will hold 500’ of 45# copper. Just set one up yesterday! [emoji2] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. On Mexico Bay with 40lb Ande Mono they cling but a flick of the rod and they come right off. On 30 wire divers, no such luck. Have to use the Velcro stick! Coppers, no problem. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. Thank you fellas, appreciate the detailed advice! Time to get to work! [emoji4] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. What are some productive techniques to target Brown trout in the summer now that the shallower locations seemed to have turned off? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. 30# 7 Strand Wire, 2’ section of 65# PowerPro, 50’ of 30# Fluorocarbon, bead, swivel. Leader material is Fluorocarbon, weight depends on target fish. With the diver on the #2 setting and a large #3 ring, you’ll get 3:1 dive ratio. I tested this with a Fish Hawk TD and it is very accurate. Join the piece of 65# braid to the wire and 30# Fluorocarbon with an Alberto Knot! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  11. 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!

  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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!
