  1. I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with Navigloo winter boat shelters ? It looks like a good product but have seen mixed reviews. I store my boat outside in the buffalo area. I'm looking for something that I can take down randomly throughout the winter. I fish on and off on the Niagara River for steelhead and browns all winter till salmon season starts. If there is other products that are better I'm open to that too. Just don't want to spend a lot on it. Thanks for are help

  2. Hello. I would like to add some brine to my cut bait. Do alot of you guys use extra brine ? I have a bottle of Mike's Natural Bright and Tight 3 in 1 brine and a 2oz bottle of salmon and steelhead glo scent. Would it be good to add it to the brine ? If so how much should I use ? I have a pint jar I'm using right now. Thanks 


  3. I just started running slide divers. I'm running the slide divers on wire with the big ring. Was wondering about the depth chart on the website. How accurate are they ? I'm usually trolling at 2.5-3.0 on the fishhawk if that helps. It seems it is about a 2-1 ratio. Is that but everyone uses ? Thought about using a fishhawk td. Would the drag change the depth ? Thanks

    Using the standard weight I use more of 2.5 to a 3 to 1 ratio.  The 2 to 1 to me is for the ultimate weight.  I usually start a little high then let line out if the diver doesn’t go.  I have been using 40lb mono leader material for the diver to slide on-seems to hold up better tan the 30lb Big Game I used to use.  You’ll know when it starts to curl up at rod dip when you are setting leader length.

    Ok. Thanks for the info. Sounds like 1 set of weights for the deep divers for the summer. Plan is to run the deep divers around the depth of the riggers and the high divers a little higher just out of temp

    You can get beyond 50 feet with std weight and big ring pulling a spoon.  With a flasher fly then you might want to go with weight kit.  I run SD’s and 50 is the point I start thinking about adding the weight kit.  I always run a ring, but I know guys who do well without them.  Some of it is personal preference and how you like to see your rods load up.

    Ok. Thanks. With using wire do you know if that would still be about a 2-1 ratio ?

  6. I was at the expo this past weekend and got some slide divers with the big ring. Out of the package with the big ring on setting 3 will it go more than 50'. Or do I need to get the weight kit for all of them?  I'm running wire with a 30' leader.

  7. I'm in the process on tearing my carpet out. What is everyone's thoughts on vinyl flooring ? From what I've seen it looks good. My worry is that it will be slippery when it gets wet. Anyone have any experience with it ?  Thanks 

  8. First of all welcome to the addiction. After I caught my first salmon and it peeled of well over a 100' of line I was hooked. The salmon school is one of the best things that you can do. There is a lot of info and it is worth the price of admission. This is the best forum for salmon fishing. Listen to what everyone is posting throughout the season. There are so many people who are willing to help a new guy out. So don't be afraid to ask any questions. I have only been trolling for salmon for a few years but the guys on here have shortened by learning curve a lot. I appreciate all the help by the way. Just remember that this is a hobby that will drive you nuts at time and sometimes keep you up at night wondering what am I doing wrong when everyone else is doing good. Just keep working at it and you will get there. I can tell you that the first time that you are in your own boat and kill it with all that you have learned it will be worth it. There will be days that you get skunked and then there will days that you cant keep lines in the water. Tight lines brother See you out there
