  1. You win. Spooled up my convector 30 with 80 lb. braid this morning!
  2. I’m not sure where you are located, but Captain Bobs in Clarence can put on new eyes, wrapping, and lacquer/epoxy over the new wraps but I’m not sure about any type of painting or polishing.
  3. To what extent are they damaged? Are you looking for cosmetic repair or just replacing missing eyes, new wrapping and such so they can be used?
  4. I respect your dedication but I don’t believe that a few pictures will hurt in the long run, properly (quickly) executed of course. I enjoy taking people out that don’t salmon fish a lot if ever, and they always want something to remember the trip by and to show to friends/family/coworkers.
  5. Can we pay through PayPal or some other means remotely? I don’t want to drive the 2 hours just to pick up the sign-up sheet but I would love to fish the tournament.
  6. 3 minutes out of the water seems to be the problem. When I’m releasing, I take the fish into the boat right away, take out the hook, and then either drag the fish with fish grips or in the net until cameras are ready. Total time out of the water is prob about 1 minute.
  7. I’ve only caught one in Erie and it was last August trolling ~100 FOW in front of Dunkirk on a watermelon stinger on a 10 color down the chute
  8. I’m going to Schroon Lake for a week on Saturday. There’s landlocks and lakers for cold water and smallmouth and northerns in warm water. I’ll try to let you know how I do
  9. I typically have use just a duo lock snap but occasionally I will use a ball bearing snap swivel on my rigger rods
  10. Trolled straight out of Olcott today and went 5 for 9. 1 small laker and average sized steel mixed in with the kings. Lost a few monsters because I took some newbies out today. Most hits were on a spin doctor/fly 290 out on a slide diver on a 2 setting with a 10 to 15 ft lead. 85-100 down over 200-300 FOW with mag spoons on riggers did well also. Didn’t catch anything big but had pretty steady action from 7-1 pm
  11. Just bought a bunch of Lake Clear Wabblers for my trip to Schroon next week. Good luck and let us know the results
  12. I can’t speak to the Eagle Claws but my GLT downrigger rods have long outlasted my more expensive White and Blue Diamonds. I love the triangular grips
  13. From what I understand heavier is always better because it results in less blowback. If you have different weights on the riggers it will be hard to replicate depths with the depth counter because of different blowbacks. Another thing to take into account is the rating on your riggers. If you have manuals there is likely an 8 or 10 lb. recommendation
  14. I would highly recommend Captain Bob’s Outdoors in Clarence
