  1. Just an opinion, but 78 is very high risk for mortality, especially with a deep hook probably near 100% fatal. May not be too bad for a stocked fishery, but I stop fishing at 75 on my home water's which are natural reproduction only. As do almost all the successful and knowledgeable anglers that I personally know
  2. Cold windy weekend kept the traffic down a bit. Got to use my new musky play pen
  3. Anyone know if there's a night bite on Chautauqua? My guess would be more likely in the north end? Trying to get my father on some muskies (bucket list fish for him). No experience on that lake but should be easy enough, it just seems like boat traffic is going to be enormous this year. It might not make a difference for the fishing but I'm limited to weekends, and Id prefer a more peaceful outing if it's worth it
  4. Very cool. Helps a lot having a visual to base my decisions off of. Thanks guys
  5. AZ was my plan for the S-10s. I like the look of the Cisco mounts there because I definitely need extra height and adjustability in the back of the boat to get around my weird transom/splashwell design. I'm going to mess with some nylon washers and see if I can get the 17s to tip like the AZ. Never an issue with the rod popping out tilted straight down like that?
  6. Putting tracks on my boat and just looking for any advice or do's and don'ts anyone with experience might have before I start drilling holes. I have 4 downeast that Im looking at various adapter's for. Two S-10 and two S-17. Also, if you could only run one down rod, would you prefer it on same side or opposite of the kicker motor? Or even right in the wash? Thanks in advance
  7. For anyone that doesnt already know, Baker Fishing Tools make's a long T handle style hookout that work's far better than pliers for reaching into a toothy mouth or even hooks outside of the mouth. Better grab and leverage and they are pretty cheap. Just don't use it to remove a hook that shouldn't be
  8. A lot of my fish unhook themselves in the bag since I use single hooks most of the time. Whenever a hook doesnt just pop out, it gets cut (with fish in the water). What's a couple $0.25 hooks when it comes to saving a fish. Knipex (must have) will go right through the post of a treble and they come out easier when the bait is out of the way, but don't even try after cutting if it's in the gills or vulnerable area, unless the point is exposed and it slides right out that way. There's also debate going around about using gatoraid or coca cola, ect.. to stop a fish from bleeding but I have no knowledge of if it's actually safe/reliable. I've seen musky and trout guys doing it.
  9. Low clear water 4lb flouro, 6lb for anything else. Otherwise 75%+ of fish will pass on your offering in my experience. Keep your float on the mainline to avoid losing it from hangups. Use blackbird or similar micro swivel below AND above your float to get least line twist possible
  10. Well that is reassuring thanks. I bought it. Now let's see if I can figure out how to use it haha
  11. What are the differences with gen 3? Is it worth $1000 extra? I can pick up the g2 9 mega si for less than 900. I'm just trying to keep up with the locals that have tons of money to blow. I've watched guys drive by me, stop and then turn back and pick up the fish they obviously marked with SI. Kind of frustrating when your on trip 3 without even seeing a fish
  12. Im not sure what I mean either. I read somewhere if you send in the one that comes with it unused, and pay like 80 bucks, hummingbird will send the hd transducer for the mega imaging. Otherwise it costs almost 300 for that one. But maybe that was the high speed they were talking about?
