  1. how much do you pay attention to glow vs. non glow? Obviously early in the morning or down deep (how deep is deep??) glow is theoretically more effective... but is there any harm running glow in higher light situations? I suppose something with UV or in combination UV/Glow would be more reflective in higher light situations --- BUT sometimes too flashy isn't good either...
  2. Is there any harm in running glow stuff in normal daylight not super deep? I suppose if it was a partial glow with UV qualities it would reflect some light and be okay. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. good info thanks @relaxer. Makes sense to run meat behind the bigger spinny w/ diver. Interesting black and white are your go to! Don't mess with the green?? I have a number white glow/crush and white with different tape color combos, but I think I only have 1 black flasher, an 8 inch black/uv spinny. I have lots of stuff with black accents/dots but not mainly black. Doesn't look like many on the market besides the carbon 14
  4. Thanks @Keep'n it Reel makes sense. I'm going to label my glow flashers with a sharpie mark and probably separate them in a different box along with the glow flies. Some of them are all glow but others just have a small piece of glow tape the ladderback in glow. At what depth would you consider deep water, low light, assuming full sun. > than say 70ft?
  5. I’ve always paid attention to finding good coordinating color combinations for flasher/flys, but what about glow? Should you match a glow flasher with a glow fly ? Does it matter ? I was in my shop rigging up all my flasher fly combinations and then I turned out the lights and was surprised what I saw… flashers I thought were glow weren’t and vice versa, same for the flies…. I had glow flies on non glow flashers and glow flashers with non glow flies. I’m trying to do better at paying attention to the smaller details to become a better fisherman… but if I’m overthinking this stuff please tell me to STFU!!

  6. Anyone ever run the 10 inch spin doctors off divers? If so, when and with what behind them? I have a handful of them but not sure if I should waste valuable time with all the other good stuff in the boat. I have 10+ 8 inch in both e chip and spin dr. For meat I typically run the 11” paddles or 13” fish blades off riggers. Or will put a meat head behind an 8inch
  7. Thanks, I mostly have the meat rigs with teasers but will pick up some heads by themselves to mix in Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. I am doing some planning for my late July trip out of Wilson and was just wondering if you guys know of any companies that will ship out cut bait? I don't believe there's anything in Wilson. I can always drive out to Boat Doctor in Olcott and grab some, but would rather focus on fishing once I get in town. Familiar Bite https://cart.gltsupplies.com/cut-bait/ used to ship them out but everything on their site says out of stock, so not sure if they are still in business. What is your preferred way to run meat -- with the 3 teaser flies or no teasers, just meat head behind the flasher?
  9. Awesome day out there, you guys are crushing it! Great way to round out the holiday weekend... instead of catching Kings, I just had leftover macoroni salad and overcooked burgers
  10. Great to hear reports like this.... hopefully July will be a great month!
  11. I like Malin 7 strand the best, but it's kind of hard to find in the 1000ft spools so I recently bought a spool of torpedo. We'll see how that goes
  12. Are their 11s similar to protroll? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Wow e chips on the sharks themselves! I may just cover everything in e chips, boat, motor, everything!!! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. You put the fish blade flashers behind your sharks? Makes sense! I run sharks too. You run 12lb or 15lb? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Nice, I haven’t tried any of the fish blades yet will have to pick up a few. I’ve seen the o’ki and salmon candy ones will have to check out Gibbs Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. You feel they run better without? You just using a size 2 or 3 snap swivel? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. I’ve been running split rings on all my spoons… but I’ve read some posts about people saying if the manufacturer doesn’t include one, you don’t need one. I just assumed they were trying to save a nickel by not including one to improve the profit margin… seems like the ring allows the natural actual of the spoon to take over but I guess I’ve never really experimented without the ring… What are you guys doing?

  18. Anyone have any luck with the protroll LED lighted flashers? I didn't have much luck with them last summer or fall, but got a mature on an 8" this spring
  19. Very cool, great to know! will save me some money for sure. Looks like they make a kit: #2043 Contains - 3 large EChips.
  20. Thanks for the heads up as I wasn't haven't any luck finding them! Looks like will need to stick with pro-troll colors if I want the e-chip?
  21. Thanks Gambler good to know Stinger has an e-chip line. I ordered several Stinger paddles recently in some great colors (fat nancy, green jeans) but they didn't have the e-chip unfortunately, I must have ordered the wrong ones.
  22. On your Spin drs. which hole do you hook your fly 1) hole closest to fins = less action, 2) other hole = more action?
  23. Do you guys see any real difference between all the brands out there? What have you found to be your go-to for divers, long lines, riggers? I like the pro-troll e-chip stuff for big paddles for meat on riggers, but they don't seem to have the fancy color options that some of the others have to use them in 8 inch -- anyone out there custom painting them? Spin doctors seem to be the standard people use for 8 inch it seems but just curious to hear what people like out there.
  24. I PM’d you earlier that I can ship them now and ready to sell. Sorry, I was trying to figure out my spread and had some second thoughts based on new info I had learned and experience with new reels I had ordered which is why I promptly refunded you. Sorry you are mad and not empathetic. If you want them still — they are yours, if not — no problemo. Tight lines! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
