  1. beckman make a wide assortment of nets.
  2. i used the 107 for awhile and liked them much better than a dipsy. but now i use the lite bite slide diver rigged like a dipsy. the lite bite is great for smaller fish on Erie.
  3. i've got a 17p high 5 that should work beautiful for you. it takes the flo torq hub kit. its in great shape. 225.00 shipped to your door. better hole shot, better lift, more boat control, than any 3 blade prop. message me if your interested.
  4. Beckman all the way for a great salmon net. we went up to Manistee last fall without a net. found the Beckman in a bait shop in Ludington mi. it was like 139.00 in the bait shop but well worth the money.
  5. i walleye fish Erie and use convector reels on my riggers.
  6. i recommend the 5225 xt for all your radio needs. a good antenna isn't a must but you'll never regret going to the 5225 xt. i'm using a step up now. i opted for the 5399 which is a 9'6" 2 piece antenna. the higher the antenna the better it works.
  7. go as heavy as the rigger is rated for. unless its rated for 20# or something. i like 13# pancake weights for my big jons. i would go no lighter than 12# as long as my rigger was rated that heavy. you can get good buys off ebay.
  8. a good used big jon rigger with swivel base is well worth 150.00. just the swivel base new will cost close to 150.00 each.
  9. i'll take the other 2 swivel bases. need them shipped at my cost. can do pay pal or check. pm me with instructions.
  10. i've had tires cup on trailer tires as well as auto tires over the yrs. each time i had them replaced i made sure they were balanced. it cured the problem each time. so many people dont think they need balanced. so it doesnt get done. and by the time its noticed its usually to late. i check my hubs every time i stop to see if they are running hot. while i'm there i also check the tires for heat and look for any problems with the tire.
  11. you are definitely doing something wrong. i run 2 riggers with 6 dipsies and never get tangled in the riggers. i only run 25' leads on my riggers. then i run my divers set on 3 in the front set on 2 in the middle set on 1 in the back. but if you put one out on the right thats set for left it will cross the lines, i have done this a few times when we had a fire drill back when i 1st started using divers. i have now switched to the lite bite slide divers set on 1.5 in the back 3.0 in the middle then 4.5 in the front. i also use daiwa sg17lca reels on the left side of the boat. and i use daiwa sg17lc3b reels on the right side to keep from putting them out on the wrong side.
  12. if you remove all gear, fish finder, riggers, planer reels, fish hawk, rod holders but leave the tracks, what would your price be fot the boat and trailer?
  13. i went to the electronic flares 2 yrs ago. just remember to install new batteries each spring.
  14. make sure and have your new tires balanced. an unbalanced tire will bounce causing it to have cups in the tire. i'm not saying its your problem but it sure as heck could be.
  15. i had 13" tires on my trailer. every time i got on the interstate i would have 1 if not 2 flats. i raised my fenders and went to 14" and havent had a flat in over 3 yrs. if the tires are wearing even try going to a larger size tire.
