  1. This is a battle ive been fighting in my head. I think logics. That 400 copper is deeper then the 300. Therfore if u have 400 on outside, he strikes he deeper then inside rod. Therfore u bring him to down the chute he will be below ur inside rod. Had a mess two years ago runnin copper with long rod on outside, short inside. Never again Spring time with mono lines, yes u want ur longer lines to the outside so they can get around the shorter lines on the inside while u bring them into the chute.
  2. Its simple. Go to my dock and jump onboard and observe the chaos! And dont forget the observer pays for fuel!!!! last year due to corona I believe they didnt have observers( at least thats what I was told cause I was askin around to observe for Pro division of oswego pro/am) if thats the case they probly wont have observers again this year. I’m fishing more tournaments this year including Oswego Pro/am. I have a friend and his son that fished with me last year, but if they can’t make tournaments this year, you and ur son are welcome to be part of the “Winning Team”!!!!
  3. Ur killing me Bill. In my perfect world there is no ice and I’ll b trolling March 20.
  4. 29days and a wake up before my boat goes in. Who’s counting anyways
  5. I bought two 4 packs of magda45’s with rods off ebay 5 years ago for $225 each set of 4. I was new and just starting off with a minimal budget. Been upgrading my cooper setups, leadcore, and dipsey combos throughout the last couple years. Still running the magda’s almost every weekend as downrigger setups for browns and kings and haven’t had any issues with them yet. Maybe I just got lucky with all 8 of mine. Well worth the money IMO when your just starting out with a budget. Good luck Mike
  6. guess I’m just gonna sell the boat and all the gear.
  7. Been wanting a Fillet board for the back of the boat for some time now, but after pricing them decided it I’m just gonna make one. So far so good. Made it 42”x18” with 4” sides. Just gotta get two bases so I can slide it into my double rod holder. I know alot of guys make these. Any ideas what to use for a base? Was thinkin a flush mount rod holder for the gunnel, but there to big to slid into rod holders.
  8. Welcome to the site. Alot of great members here always willing to share info and answer questions
  9. I run inline boards all year. Two on each side. For example. I’ll run 400’ on inside boards then a 300’ on outside. “For The Love of Copper” by legacy is a great read. read it a couple years ago. Gonna read it again for a refresher
  10. Copper is a great weapon to have in the arsenal but can DEFINITELY b a nightmare! I’m still tryin to figure it out after running it for 4years. I try to keep my speed at the ball at 2.5mph (should have made that clear with last post) BUT with currents I’ve seen speed 1.5 at the boat and 2.5 at my ball down 70ft or 2.5 at the ball and the boat is 3mph. Whats this difference in current doin with the depth of your copper? Maybe I’m wrong but I decide what copper to use based on what the boat speed is.
  11. Speed is everything when running copper IMO. .5mph could b a difference of 20ft in depth. I clip my coppers on backin right behind the copper to inline boards. I have sets of 250,300,and 400 and each set has its place durring the year. I always try to maintain speed at 2.5 and according to depth of marks or thermocline that decides what coopers go out.
  12. Gonna have to wait in line for Les’s Book. I’m # 1 in line for that
  13. 3 dipsey diver size 001. 2 with rings on them and the green one doesnt have a ring. 2 Walker Deeper Diver 107’s 1 Walker Deeper Diver 124 1 New Chinook Diver. Asking $35 Shipped.
  14. I bought this lot a couple years ago off another member. Haven’t used them, so I guess its time to part with em. Asking $120 shipped. Comes with the box. Not all have swivels on them as seen in pics. Thanks. Mike
  15. Thank you for the input. No Brian i do not have a killswitch on the trottle. At least I dont think I do.lol. definitely thinking solenoid at this point. When I put the new starter on Hopefully its good if not then next step I will check the relay. Wish I checked that before I ripped the starter out.
  16. It does have the neutral saftey switch and I tried playin around with the throttle and nothin. I just bit the bullet and ordered a new starter. If that don’t do I guess I’m gonna get a new ignition next.
  17. Tried the whole hitting with a hammer. Still nothing. All fuses are good. I jumped all 3 wires comin from the switch and still nothin from the starter. Put a test light on the starter and have power at the starter.
  18. Gettin my 1986 bayliner trophy 2460 ready to sell in the spring. Never had any issues with it. Always been very good to me. Had a fella that was gonna check it out so I went out and turned the key to check the batteries and the starter wouldnt turn. No click, nothin. Batteries r fully charged. My last two times out with it when I first fired it up I had to turn the key on and off two or three times before it would crank over. But really didnt think much of it. Any suggestions where to start? Thinkin maybe the starter solinoid was startin to go bad, now its just shot. Seems logic to me. Any suggestions? thanks for any input fellas Mike
  19. This is the quote I just got from BoatUs. Seems whenener I go online and get a quote there all over a $1000. So I took sk8man’s (Les) advice and called an agent. Statefarm just gave me a quote of $580 for 25k replacement value. 300k liability. Now I’m gettin somewhere. Thank you fellas
  20. Excellant. Thank you. Thats what I’m lookin for. Ive been in my slip a couple years without insurance, but there are some marinas that want to see insurance
  21. Winter is winding down and before we know it we will be slammin browns in skinny water. Bought my new boat last August and ran it the remainder of the season without any insurance. Really don’t want to think of the “unthinkable” but it does happen and I want to get insurance on it just for the piece of mind. Just ran a quote from progressive for an agreed value and they came back at $1400 per year. Seems expensive and they didnt ask if theres a layup or anything. I know an agreed value is more. Whats some other companys I should look into and what do some of you guys pay? Any imput is greatly appreciated thanks Mike
  22. Been following this thread. Like I posted a few months ago they are hard to find. I will keep an eye out around Little Salmon river this spring and if something comes up I will let ya know. good luck findin a boat and good luck with your 2021 season.
  23. Awesome Rick. Lots of info there. I always do the same with regular size spoons on rigger with the same spoon in a mag 10ft above on fixed cheater. Works very well.
  24. I had the same question Ryan. Rick sent me the link from fish USA for the diawa diver rods and they were out of stock a few weeks and came back in a week ago. Just got them in and paired them up with Diawa sealine 47sg reels. Definitely a solid setup for under $200
