  1. Where can we find the patterns? And where did you get the glow vinyl? My wife can only find standard colors.
  2. I saw the same out of bear creek yesterday afternoon. We did catch a 14 pound laker on RV green jeans on a rigger 90 over 200. We didn't expect that at all.
  3. They sunk like a rock in the pool, so I took the weight off the original keel. They are a little saggy in the ass, but float pretty well. Well see how they work Saturday
  4. I read where some guys had keels made from thin sheet steel or aluminum. The ones I had made are stainless and heavy as hell without a weight. I'm wondering if that will make the boats sink and if I should remove the weight from the factory keel. We shall see...tonight I'll take them out and give them a whirl.
  5. Thank you. I hadn't considered replacing the tow line. I had a set made by a buddy out of stainless. They seem awfully heavy without the weight. If I need to ill take the weight of the factory keel.
  6. I read some past posts from years back about ordering a second half weight keel. I'm interested in doing this, or making some. Question is, do the keels need to be parallel. I'm assuming yes, since opposing keel angles would be pointless. On my boats the 2 sets of mounting holes are not parallel. So, when ordering the second keel will the mounting holes be drilled to offset the second keel to keep them parallel?
  7. Yesterday pit if bear creek we landed 4 kings in 150 feet down 80. Raspberry carbon, hulk and green jeans spoons. Fat Nancy protroll with stud fly got us one.
  8. Nice fish!! I saw the same out of bear creek. 140 to 160 were best screens. It was mostly a spoon bite for us.
  9. 150 feet east troll. Steady pick of kings and cohos on hulk RV on 10 color, raspberry carbon RV on 300 copper, fat Nancy with stud fly out 250, and even picked up a nice 10 pounder on a gambler rig parked on the bottom....that was a first for me. Lots of bait at 80 feet. Anything outside 140 to 160 was blank.
  10. Exact same thing happened to me twice in 4 years. Both times they gave me the discount. The fella on the phone said to avoid storing them in direct sun light. The refraction of the sun heats up the internals and fries the thyristor. But yes, it seems a problem this prolific needs to be addressed somehow...like maybe not making the body transparent perhaps?
  11. So just cut and reconnect then? Are the cords longer?
  12. Anyone know where I can find an extention cord for a cannon mag 10? Based on my battery location and in hull tubing I need an extention cord to go between the rigger and battery ends about 4 feet long. I made my own with 10 gage wire and covered with a corrugated tube, but I'd Ike to get something that is a bit more waterproof and looks a little less redneck engineered. Thanks Dave
  13. Ive never jigged for salmon, but I'll give it a try. I planned on a 6 rod spread. Riggers with high and low dipseys
  14. I want to take a trip to the bar in the spring. Never been and all I hear about it is its a bucket list trip. Looking for info on launches, depth, baits etc. I have a 18 ft aluminum I troll all summer with out of bear creek. Ill be driving from just east of Rochester. Thank you Dave
  15. Looking for a place to get 8 reels rewound with 20 pound mono in the Rochester area.... Ty Dave
  16. I fished lake superior for lake trout a couple months ago. The food quality of the lakers in superior is far better than onatrio. I guess the colder water and food sources makes all the difference. We caught steelhead and lakers and could not tell the difference in color or taste of meat. That being said, I believe smoked lake trout is as good as any other smoked lake fish coming out of lake ontario.
  17. 630 first rod in, UV hulk Mag 50 down in 100ft. 635....fish on while setting second rod. 18 pound female. Moved on to 50 ft after an hour of blank screen screens. 15 minutes double on green meat rig down 30 and nbk on 5 color. That is all
  18. Its what I feel like the day after eating the Bill's Mafia sauce covered wings washed down with a Genny Light...its a different kind of screamer
  19. Left at 330 straight to 200. Blankety blank blank screens. 50 degrees was down 50ft. Moved headed NE, nadda. Moved in to 115...holy crap. 400 copper with a 11in silver paddle and meat head takes a rip, dipsey out 220 with green meat takes a rip. Get those rest and 300Cu with C14 gets a 20 pounder. Green meat gets smasked and I lost the whole rig behind my snubber. 400 copper has a flounder pounder mag RV, takes a hit, 45 pound braid backing breaks. So...if anyone catches my copper line I just want the spoon back. Rigger at 65 with raspberry carbon gets a teenager. A great night, cant wait for tomorrow.
  20. The color of their gums. Coho are white compared to black in kings.
  21. Jesus...now I really feel like an idiot. Thanks for the help everyone
  22. So hold back the laughter, but what is the 29 line? Thanks for the help.
