  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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!

  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Looks like its off a Moor subtroll 900 Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Its as good as any other copper. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. Certainly was a grind. Fished between Wilson and Olcott. Roasted Friday for 10 hrs. with 12 bites. Boated 5 coho, 2 kings, and lost two kings at back of the boat. Mostly spoon bite, from 30 ft to 85 ft down over 170 to 220 fow but biggest ho (about 9 lbs.) came on a two face spinny with green fly on a 300 copper. Absolutely no pattern at all. fish were scattered. No marks. Fish had almost empty stomachs. Saturday. Being cloudy, would have thought it would pick up. 4 bites from 6 am till 2 pm when it got a little rough. 3 hos and 1 king on a carbon 14, which we we broke off in a rigger cable. Spoons, with one on a pink maglip on a 3 color core. We tried to cover all water columns. Ran meat 80 to 110 down and it never took a shot. Very few marks, decent bait balls 70 to 90 fow.

  16. Stealth presentations help. Run longer leads on your riggers and try to find your own water away from the pack if u can. Also we slammed the coho last weekend on 5 color core off inlines. Good luck. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. Running slide divers with real long leads set on a 3 setting help when theres lots of boat traffic . Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. Have it on my Lowrance Carbon and have never needed it or used it on Lake O. Great for looking for structure and brush piles in the local lakes. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. The park at Wilson has a nice launch. The bar isnt that far and I had plans to run down there but never made it. Found plenty of fish 1 to 4 miles west of Wilson. The area around the red can at the bar has been producing a lot of fish. Good luck Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. You probably cant go wrong with a 300 copper. A 10 color core will give you about the same depth as a 300' 32 lb copper. The 45 lb copper will give a little more depth but requires a bigger reel. A 7 color core would run around 35'. So you cover different depths. A 3 color and a 5 color can be killer in spring, but probably not so much into the summer although there certainly are exceptions to that as well.

  21. I have used the regular Suffix core with good results. Last year I switched to Tufline Micro lead. Sink rate about the same, about 5' per color. The main advantage I can see is the smaller diameter lets use a smaller reel and still pack on a sufficient amount of backing. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. May 7th. Good king bite west of Wilson. Best water for us was 75 to 85 fow. F/F bite good early. Spoons later. Took fish on riggers, mag divers and slide divers. Long lines never took a shot. Ran everything 40 to 60 down. May 8th. Little tougher bite. More coho than kings. Riggers, Mag divers and slide divers, and 5 core took more coho. Standard spoons. Spoon in pic on 5 core was hot for hos. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
