  1. Check with Fish USA. They may have a motor. I replaced one of mine with a cisco motor. Stronger, faster and cheaper. About an hr job. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Here is a pic of a loaded rod. Even more is better. You may not be able to achieve this with a pinch pad type release. A blacks release is inexpensive and the tension can be adjusted. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. While experience will teach you to read your downspeed by the cable angle of your rigger, you can shorten the learning curve with a speed/temp system such as a Fish Hawk or Moor Subtroll. While a Fishhawk is expensive, used Moors come up for sale on this site on occasion. The down speed at the weight can greatly differ from surface speed. Also a drift sock (relatively cheap) can slow your speed down. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Running 2 rods off of one rigger can be done, but perhaps a better option would be to run a slider, either free or fixed off the line of a single rod. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Are your rigger booms rated for 12 lbs. The bouncing could be from the booms bouncing. Shorter booms could help with this. Are you using rubber bands on your releases? Are you loading the rods? Really crank a deep arch into them. Also while its good to run the weights above your marks, stagger your depths unless you are seeing a pattern at a certain depth. You will find that a lot of fish you catch wont show on your sonar, especially with longer leads on your riggers. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. I run 30 lb power pro and 7 strand wire with the deeper divers. They are close to the charts with the wire running only slightly deeper. On any given day depths may vary with current and speed. F/F will run different than spoons as well. I usually run a 124 mm on 1 setting inside rods and a slide diver or 107mm on a 3 on outside rods. Starboard I usually run deeper than port side and keep adjusting till I find a depth thats working. When u find a depth thats consistently working then you can adjust the other rods Good luck!

  7. The 8'6" Daiwa ft at Fish USA have nice lite action. I use them for walleye. I have landed salmon on them as well but they are a little flimsy for that. Nice price too Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Lake View motel is just west of Wilson. Rooms, cottages, cabins, very nice. Good people. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. I had one. Keep in mind that will still only show surface speed. At least you would have a reference point so you could reproduce speed but you can do that on your gps. Down speed and surface speed can widely vary. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. If you can't get it working you can send it to Big Blue Enterprises in Buffalo. They can recalibrate it. I had mine done earlier this yr. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Looks like its off a Moor subtroll 900 Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Its as good as any other copper. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. I fished out of Wilson but most of our fish came east between Olcott and Wilson Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. We did manage to put 5 coho and 4 kings in the boat and dropped a couple kings but they all had empty stomachs. Go figure Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Saw it. We had plastic in rigger cables and divers. Fished around it but our fish came from deeper water. Lot of weeds too. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
