  1. Nice. Weather forecast was all over, made plans for erie with kiddos instead today, a tiny bit jealous.... but being on any water is better than not! Looks beautiful out. How are fleas? Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. No one? Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Yeah I'll do this with an empty small dipsy I think... can't wait for all those fleas! Should I let out the backing too, or just the wire and leader? Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. There is a gap near edges of spool where wire didn't fill well... thinking that contributed to issue also. I am going to spool fresh, and try a 30 or 50lb braid backing so it winds compactly. Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Yeah it unspooled smoothly and in alignment the first several hundred feet, not sure how but it got off track... we have used it a few times since the tangle. Haven't had that much wire out to date. Using a Coldwater 453 reel, holds 1k feet with plenty of backing. I'm going to strip the spool and try again. Maybe ill let an empty dipsy out 800 feet or something and reel it back in with resistance to keep it seated well. Thought I did that last time, but maybe I went to 500 and stopped and that's where I broke off now? Who knows... Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Old thread, but just had this happen to me. Hooked into a big mature, went from 135 ft out to 300 in about what seemed to be 10 or 15 seconds...fish was ripping wire off super fast (second fastest I've seen to date) I had previously cut apx 150ft or so off my 1000' reel due to a tangle. Got to 300 ft out on this fish, and wire snapped at spool [emoji20]. Looked like it was crossing opposite from the line guide creating additional friction, and was enough to break the 30lb 7 strand wire. Spool has mono as backer, wondering if I should cut off all wire and respool from empty with 50lb braid as backer or something like that. Any thoughts on braid weight? Should I skip and spool instead with fluorocarbon backer? It was heartbreaking to know there was a giant hooked hard at the end and losing it like that (with my dipsy, flasher, etc too, obviously) - being my fault too. So if anyone in Olcott/Wilson area hauls up a big one and it's got a bunch of gear toting along, let me know! Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Bump. We're in velvet season, got my shiny green license in the mail, dmp's only two weeks away... getting close! Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Hey all, not sure where this would be best posted - apologize if it's in the wrong section. Anyone else having issues with the LOU app on their phone loading/staying open lately? Last two or three days on my Samsung Galaxy S20 I haven't been able to open the app without it immediately crashing.... tried a bunch of restarts, reinstall, etc. Nothing seemed to work. The site itself is obviously up and running. Same for Lake Erie United app for me.
  9. Water seems really low this year for sure. I picked up some nicks on my prop at the fort niagara ramp (south ramp). All sorts of debris / rocks blown out of ramp from people driving their boats onto their trailers.... (GRR). Not major damage, but really annoying. The north ramp has a ledge at the bottom of it folks are banging their axels on too... One guy bent an axel there a few weeks back... so pick your poison there... or, go to olcott / wilson (what i started to do). Drives me nuts to see someone with two 150 horse motors driving their 18 inch draft bass boat onto their trailer when they are too lazy to use the winch. If you're disabled or elderly - fine, i can give you a pass, but I have seen soo many folks rev hard up onto trailer and blow all sorts of garbage into river with prop wash....

  14. Yes it is Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Anyone have a z wing 150 they want to trade for a 250? Downrigger didn't seem too happy hauling this one from depth, looking for something with a little less pull. Located in 14224. Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
