  1. Steelhead

    I don’t target them specifically on Erie but they do show around 2 or faster for speed. They tend to like be around the thermocline if there is one. Later in season they can show up in any temp. Spoons especially with some orange are a good choice. Exciting change of pace on a walleye trip.
  2. Lowrance LCX 37c

    Looks like LCX 37C requires a LGC3000 external antenna. You can download a manual for the LCX 37C to check out install instructions.

  4. Dream Weaver wormburners

    I tie my own harness with bead chain. I’ll run them off riggers and slide divers. Usually I’ll run burners on one side and clean spoons on the other then adjust to what the fish want. I set them back same as a clean spoon. Some days the burners do well-worth having a few on the boat. To me more speed tolerant than a regular worm harness.
  5. winterizing

    The engine should self drain fine-lower the motor down as far as you can to be sure water is out. The other area to check is lower unit oil-pull drain plug check for any sign of water like milky oil. Any doubt change and refill. Also not a bad idea to pull prop and grease shaft. The more service you do in the fall means less work in spring.
  6. Solid Kicker Bracket

    Dropping and Lifting by hand- when I update kicker I would look into power tilt. I have a backer plate under the mount and a safety chain for kicker. Also use a ratchet strap to boat tie down to keep kicker tight when running. Found a couple pictures from when I setup boat originally.
  7. Solid Kicker Bracket

    I use an Adventure Marine fixed kicker bracket on my Proline with a Stainless Marine bracket. I just tilt kicker when not in use. For steering I have brackets on hydraulic steering and kicker for quick connect rod. Pretty common on west coast to run kickers this style. I've had people comment that the setup looked like a factory option.
  8. Ten Percent - a good source for reel repair and reel parts is Tuna's Reel Troubles in Ludington, Michigan. If your Daiwa's are the Great Lakes Series you might find limited parts availability. I run a variety of Daiwa line counters from Saltist series to 47SGLCA's. IMO the reel is the place to put your money and you can save some bucks on trolling rods. Diver reels can get a workout especially if you spend time on Lake O as well as Erie.
  9. Lund or crestliner.

    Lund and Crestliner are both owned by Brunswick and are made in the same factory in Minnesota. Main difference is in construction of hull- Lund uses rivets and the Crestliner is welded. To me choice between the brands boils down to personal preference on construction, layout and local dealer. Brunswick also owns Mercury so most Lunds and Crestliners come with Mercury power. Starcraft has added a Starweld line so they have riveted and welded aluminum choice as well. Brunswick is a big marine player owning Searay and Boston Whaler as well. Interesting to check out their corporate site to see all their brands..

  13. Diawa lc 47's

    Tuna's Reel Troubles sells the carbon fiber drag parts so you can do the swap yourself if you don't want to send in your reels. The upgrade makes a big difference. I've ordered from them multiple times and always good service.
  14. When I run 2 divers per side I let them out at same time and creep them out with the drag slowly. If I see my spread being effected by current, I'll stick to one diver/side. Tangles mean lost time and gear.
  15. Well guys, here's the new ride! Whatcha think?

    Exciting to setup and put together a new rig! Have fun and hope you catch lots of fish with it.
