    Introduction

    welcome aboard. you've come to the rite place. some of the best fishermen and woman in the world are on this site and more than willing to help.
  5. invest in a couple of manual down riggers and run at least 2 #1 dipsys per side. that will give you 6 lines out. and a 16 footer fishes 2 people really well. just my 2 cents.

    Conesus Conesus Largemouth

    I use to fish exclusively for bass and that fish is better than 6 lbs for sure. I would bet 7 to 8.5 lbs. it a hog for sure. Nice fish. Weigh him next time you catch him. Lol. I’d bet you have a scale for your next trip. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    3rd down rigger????

    Thanks for the input. My boat is a 2452 bayliner classic with a hard top. It’s 8 and 1/2 feet wide. I have tracks down both sides that I run my riggers and my rod holders for my dipsy divers on. My riggers have extendable booms to 54 inches. I have another set of riggers that have 48 inch booms but I’m not sure I need 3 or 4 riggers? Maybe I’ll try it and if I don’t like it I’ll pull them back off. It would be nice in high traffic areas but I usually avoid those areas anyway. Do you think 2 straight out the back and 2 at 90 degrees would be far enough apart? They would only be 52 inches from each other. If I run 3, I could run one off the corner at 45 degrees and my separation would be 8 feet. But it would be rite in my prop wash about 3 feet behind my prop???

    X4d vs XD fish hawk

    I would think the depth of your lure would be worth the extra coin. mine will have blue tooth for sure. for 100.00 ? for sure it will.
  16. Sounds to me like you have a solid plan now you just need to execute it. The biggest thing is to keep him engaged, try to make everything fun for him and don’t be too hard on yourself brother, it will all work out. [emoji4][emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Splash down

    On the Pa. side Willow bay is a good place to start then sugar bay would be my next spot. There is usually a lot of daytime pressure on that lake, you would do better night fishing Kinzua. I usually do well in front of the beach just past the bridge trolling at night. There are some really big Browns in there to that no one targets, you can usually pick up a few of them trolling the east shoreline near any of the steep banks where the water gets deep fast, use some plainer to get up close to the shore. Ps. Always drag a very large plug in your prop wash. There are huge muskies in that lake. Good luck and tight lines. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Splash down

    Do you fish kinzua a lot? I use to fish there every weekend, lots of white fish in there if the walleye aren’t biting. There catching a lot of walleye on the reservation rite now. There averaging about 16 17 inches. There is always the chance of getting a real wall hanger in there. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    What fish finder do I buy?

    Get the biggest screen you can get in your budget. I would also recommend getting one with a chart plotter gps. And maybe the card to go with it so you have the topography of the lake. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Spooling 7 strand stainless wire

    The way I do it is 20 feet of 50# mono then 1000 feet of wire, then I fill the reel with 50# braid. Then I hook my braid to another reel ( the same size) and reel it on. Use the drag on the first reel to keep it tight. The 20 feet of 50 # mono is to make deployment and storage of your wire rods easer. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
