  1. Me too. Its should easily steer one handed. Maybe take the dealer tech for a sea trial>>>something is definitely goofy.
  2. I hava a 15hp yamaha 4 stroke kicker on my 18ft tracker that I rarely use for trolling on lake O because I do not have throttle control at the helm and its a huge pain in the butt to have to keep getting up to make speed adjustments. Besides my main motor (Verado 150) can troll down to about 2.0 mph. That said I do like having a backup out there, especially on boats our size. It does cause the boat to list slightly to port and stern while its sitting at the dock but I have not noticed any problems with the boat performance while on plane or trolling. Good luck!
  3. Temp is down 120-140. Ff 140 down over 200 fow has been picking us up some fish. Slow pick but at least there are some active fish. Mexico bay was stuffed with fish yesterday morning but they were not hungry. Also picking up a couple in the willow hole on salmon river when its too rough to get on the lake. Not great but some fish around. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Glad to hear it wasn't just me. First season really targeting the fish in the lake and have been disappointed with the catch so far. I'll be fishing all next week weather provided so stay tuned for reports.
  5. Maybe that was a factor. If I remember I believe the waves were pushing toward that board on the port side. The boat could have been overrunning the board I guess. Something to watch for for sure…thanks Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. I'm running 25# mono backer so that's not the issue. Next time out I will try the 400 on the other board that was working well with the 200. Could be something with that particular board I guess. Thanks for the input leadhead.
  7. Yes there was. I saw that on a couple of videos so I made sure the slack was there. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. I bought a couple Off Shore SST pro mag side planers and ran them on Sunday. Hooked one onto my 200 copper and it did great. Hooked the other to my 400 copper and it would barely plane at all. It was a little rough (~3ftrs max) but I thought these particular boards were able to handle 400's with ease! Anybody else have this issue and do you use a different board for 400+ coppers?
  9. I've had issues with service from Cannon as well. Good luck.
  10. Not to get too far off topic but I've been thinking of getting a Fish Hawk for next season but after seeing posts like this and talking with other fishermen who have trouble with their units I am not sure its worth the money. I understand that they have excellent customer service but when I buy a product I just want it to do what its supposed to without all the headaches. Are there any other good options on the market or is Fish Hawk pretty much as good as it gets?
  11. I had the handle grip come off in my hand on both of my manual downriggers. The first time I just ordered the replacement. The second time I called customer service and complained. I had to argue with the representative to have them send me a replacement and they told me it would be 2 weeks for it to arrive. I had to cover the expense to have it shipped out quickly so I could use it on an upcoming trip. I was not pleased. I am likely going to purchase electric riggers over the winter and they will probably not be Cannons based on my experience.
  12. Glad it's picking up. We had a real tough day friday. Fished 5;30 AM to 2ish pm with zip. Covered 20 to 120 feet in every presentation your can think of. Marked a ton of fish and bait but nothing would bite.
  13. I had a good experience with this charter but it may be a little far away from Myrtle. Ranger bay boat put us on flounder on the intercoastal and then fished the breakwall for reds and even hooked a couple good sized shark. https://www.captainjot.com/
  14. Im new to copper and was wondering if anyone runs this stuff? I have some blood run on the way but this stuff is a little cheaper so I thought I would ask. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. We had heard rumors that guys were finding browns in 25fow so we pounded that area as well as the 6-15 range. Went right over 50 feet to go offshore for lakers...didn't think to look for browns there. Glad the kings are showing up!!
  16. Had another tough day searching for browns in the Mexico area on Friday. Marked enough fish to keep us chasing for a long time but no takers. Gave up eventually and headed out for lakers but they weren’t hungry either. Very inconsistent bite for us this year. Did manage one trophy that got us laughing though!!

  17. The salmon was mixed in with the browns in about 10ft of water. We think it was a Coho.
  18. Fishing out of Catfish creek. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. Had a good bite Saturday morning until around noon. Stingers with chartreuse patterns was our best bait. Took a burger break and came back out a couple hours later. The lake was laying down and so was the bite. Managed one more and then quit for the day. Sunday morning dawned with steel grey skies and light drizzle, in other words it looked really fishy! We washed lures for a few hours without moving a rod and headed home. Wonder where they went?
  20. Thanks a lot...you just cost me a bunch of money!
  21. Fished out of there this weekend. 21.5 trophy didn’t have any issues and there were some larger boats going through. Call the Wally who runs a charter boat there and Im sure he could be more specific. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. Thanks to Hachimos tips we got into the lakers this morning. 175 fow west troll from plant. 8/10 hitting bells with peanuts and spin and glows. Stacked williams wobbler did well also. 10 ft over the bells Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
