  1. I’ve been running a Honda 9.9 since 2014. Just did water pump this offseason. Was surprised how easy it was to replace. 5 bolts and backoff the nut connecting the shift shaft and it’s off. Honda gets my vote for easy maintenance and 1-2 pull starts every time. No experience with the other brand. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. For you guys running Shimano TDR, which action and length do you prefer for kings? I saw some TDR in person today. There were a couple different actions. I guess I’d go heavier since my focus is handling big kings on flasher fly combos? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. Looking to upgrade 4 of my DR rods this year. Anyone ever use the Daiwa Great Lakes rods with the triangular grips? Thinking the 8’6” model. I’m currently running 9’6” Daiwa Heartlands for both boards and divers and like them a lot. The Daiwa GL 8’6” rods are about $40. Who’s running what in that price range? I’m brand agnostic but started with Diawa GL based on my experience with the Heartlands. Open to used, too, if you got something. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Anyone know of a conservation style net, ideally replacement bag, big enough for a salmon net? See them for other species - trout even walleye - but haven’t seen anything for large enough for salmon. The nylon style knotted net is not the easiest on the fish. If I’m putting a salmon or trout back in the lake it better damn well live! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  6. Getting close to buying a mint condition center console that’s always been rack stored. I’d rather not bottom paint and I’m considering trailering. But in the meantime, does anyone rack store somewhere near one of the better salmon ports? Guessin I’ll find something on the Genessee but just in case I’m missing somewhere else. I’ll be coming up most weekends from Penn Yan area. Looking for recommendations. Thx. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. Woke up to some bumps on Friday morning so waited on the lake to settle down a bit. Launched around Noon with a couple greenhorns and made our way to about 350. Found some bait and took a rip on a deep diver but came up empty. Then high diver w spoon fired with a nice steelie and got on some steady action. Flasher/stud fly 95 down on rigger took 14 & 20lb kings. High divers w spoons took 5 steelie bites and deep divers took some smaller (7/8lb) kings too. Had steady action and a happy crew. Went 3/5 on steel and 5/5 on kings. Clouds moved in around 5 and shut down out action. Called it a day. Saturday we woke to a calmer than expected lake so launched around 8am. (No trailers in the lot on a Saturday? wife asks if everyone knows something we don’t...) Figured to work the inside waters wind permitting. Setup 4/5 miles West of the Oak in 80 feet and worked out to 95. Took a 10lber on blue DW mag spoon on high diver 275 back. Then right out front we managed a double in some washing machine like conditions - 1 14er on deep diver w two face uv spin doctor n aqua/blue fly then high diver 225 back w mag blue dolphin DW hooked up and landed both. Second one was pushing 20. Ran jplugs deep to start but nothing doing. By then the wind machine really cranked up and shifted to west so we called it day and made a slow bee line back. No derby fish today but we’ll try again next weekend. Wifey did a great job steering and clearing then grabbing the 20 when it hit. Lucky to have a better half that is willing to stay and fish in 3-4s, control a boat, and still land a fish. Good luck if you go. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Working inside now west of Olcott 90 feet nothin yet. Worked deep early 350-400 twd west. 1 shaker. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Nice catch. Let’s see that toe! We should start a wound thread... Last week, last fish of the morning, a solid 18, one of the treble hooks in the jaw, easy peasy removal. Cept the spoon/hook fly outta the jaw and land point first in back of my left hand right in/on my vein! Pulled the hook and the red stuff starts flowing. Luckily a little pressure n she was good in 5-10mins. Hate to think what woulda happened if I’d gotten the barb! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. We started 630am in about 85-90 outta Mexico. Downtemped in 135 saw 49F 105 down? Something like that. Plotted a course to the deeps. Finally 1030 high 2 dipsey braid 250 back over 330 feet takes a hit get 18.5 for the wife. Went dead again for some time til stealth rigger 110-115 down took a pre-teen in 280 maybe. Couple more small fish on w/long release that was it til 2pm down off the Mohawk plant. Both on spoons. Getting me some Humble Pie tonight! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. These fit in tracks. Universal sorta fit for riggers. I’m running manual Penn 620 looking to add another pair to my setup. Anyone got one or two? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Wrights Landing had plenty parking around July 2-3rd the first time I fished there. Fyi for out of towners like me the inside of the breakwall (minus the actual launch area) is NOT a No Wake Zone. But...beware the clueless kayakers milling about the light house and outer breakwall/light. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Very few almost none at the Oak. Inside and out to about 325feet. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. FishnChef, call me back, tried to message you. I've got an 1850 Super Hawk too, I'd like to see some more of your setup if that's possible, too? I can see a little in this picture, but would love to chat, take those holders off your hands. Check ur messages for my number. Thanks bw
  15. I'm in Himrod, NY 14842 but will be passing thru Erie, PA on Sunday Aug 2 or Monday Aug 3. Can PayPal now and pickup then if works for you? I'll take 4 nice SGs...
