    auto pilot vs bow mounted electric

    I have both set ups on my 18 foot lund. 24v terrova with ipilot and raymarine ev 100 auto for the main motor. I like the terrova for small lakes or at very slow trolling speeds and the ev 100 for salmon fishing. Main motor is a 90hp Mercury with smartcraft tachometer with rpm adjustment. When i bought the boat i installed a 24v terrova with a set of group 31 batteries. Used it on its own for spot lock feature and trolling. As i progressed into fishing lake Ontario more and kings specifically I was using the terrova for steering while pushing with my main motor. the big motor handled the chop better than the electric alone. I might be in the minority on this, but I found that i didnt like dealing with the remote on the terrova for course adjustment. I always have a buddy with me on the big lake and i hated handing off the remote if i was busy with a fish. I just prefer the console mounted control of the raymarine and not having to deploy or bring in a bow mounted motor in choppy waters. One less thing to deal with. I love having the versatility of both systems, but if i was doing it again and could only afford one it would be the raymarine. I dont cast enough anymore to justify needing spot lock and found my personal preference is to use the main motor for trolling. I find myself using it more and more, even on the small lakes while the terrova is just along for the ride. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Tekota 700

    Depends on the size of the copper. If you are talking 45lb, then 200, maybe 250ft at most. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Must Have Gear

    X3 on the wire divers, they just produce. Your 25lb mono with 20lb leader should suffice for your rigger rods. Just make sure you have 500+ft of line on your rigger rods or backing if you run copper or deep leads. I run 900ft behind my coppers and cores and 1000ft of wire for my divers. You will know why when you get an angry king on and that line starts disappearing fast. Stinger, moonshines, and dream weaver are popular spoons. I wouldnt run anything under 4" this time of year. As mentioned above, meat rigs and flasher flies also. Good luck! Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Raymarine EV 100 autopilot

    Make sure your ev1 sensor/ compass is secure and properly aligned and all your cable connections are good. The ev1 also has an led that should be green under normal conditions. You could also try doing a factory reset if everything looks ok. You will have to go through the dockside wizard and sea trial set up of it again though.

    Kicker Auto pilot

    Don't have the TR-1 as I also have an ev 100 on my boat. The Raymarine evolution series is designed for boats with hydraulic steering. I have always heard guys speak very highly of the TR-1 though. Hodges marine has it for $2048 and the remote is pictured with it. It is possible that garmin sells a kit without the remote at a different price. Raymarine sells kits with and without the drive unit in their evolution series which makes a big difference in the price of the kit. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Looking to buy RAYMARINE EV-200

    Hodges marine at $1999 also. I bought my ev 100 from them last month, decent shipping time Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Sam's Pro Releases

    X2 on this exact set up. The sams release is adjustable enough so it doesnt false release under those conditions. A decent king will surely pop it open though. Between the sams release opening and your drag loosened, the board should stay on top of the water. Just let the fish take line and fall back behind your other lines(boards or divers) to the middle before working him in. Big boards on my little boat were a pain so i switched to inlines. Both have their pros and cons. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Took a buddy and his son out yesterday. His second trip and his boys first. Setup on a NE troll in 100ft of water. Kept the spread simple as i am new to the sport myself. 2 riggers, 1 wire dipsy, and my first time using copper....a 300ft rig on an offshore mag inline board. First hour just a few little shakers. I figured we had another one when I saw one of the rigger rod tips twitching so I hopped up, grabbed the rod and tried to release the line from the weight. At about the same time I figured out I was pulling on the fish, the fish figured out it was hooked. Good one on! Handed the rod over to my buddy as the fish took off. He finally slowed down 300+ feet later and dad and son worked together to get him in. Solid fish, checked in a tick over 19lbs. Landed a 17 lb on the copper, a couple more shakers, and lost 2 good ones in the prop wash. Most action between 140-160 ft and 50-80 feet down. Moonshine and Stinger spoons. Fished 6:00-10:00 but the bite turned off by about 9:00. Fleas were getting bad by the time we started pulling rods. Didn't see many other boats.....maybe others went out deep?
