    Almost There!!!

    welcome to this sight. reels in order but there is other reels I have no knowledge on. shimano tekota lc daiwa sealine lc3b daiwa accudepth plus lc okuma convector okuma magda pro i've heard good things about okuma cold water but I know nothing about them myself. I use the daiwa sealine sg17lca and the sg17lc3b and they work great for walleye. you do want to use the same brand and size reels for trolling. you want to fill then with the same amount of line. if you run 30# braid in will work for boards or divers. but you want a mono backing on you reels before you put the braid on. you just want enough braid on top to fish. ujse as much mono backing to fill the reel up to where you attach the braid with a double uni to uni knot. I have 300' of braid on top of 17# mono. rods, you don't need anything fancy for trolling rods. I recommend the daiwa wilderness trolling rods in 8' med action. this rod works great for boards or dipsy's. they are 19.99 at fishusa.com

    Trailer Winch and Cable

    a fulton 2000# 2 speed winch is 145.00 on ebay. if I still used a manual winch I would be all over this winch.

    a lot of guys on erie swear by the regular size stinger spoons. the spoons I use are light weight and only 2 1/2 inches long. you don't need a big bait to catch big fish.

    I use mostly spoons from galeforcetackle.com they are the best. the paint doesn't come off these spoons. I also have a few stinger scorpion spoons. both catch fish but stinger has some colors that a cant get at gale force is the only reason I buy them.
  5. pm sent to buy the slide divers.

    Downrigger Techniques

    I only use about a 20' lead off my release. I've never tried slow reeling after I pop the release. I would thing just popping the release and waiting a couple of minutes before starting reeling would work just as good.

    Hot walleye lures 2018

    don't have that happen much since I started using lite bite slide divers. we just use them like a dipsey without using the slide part of the diver. but we do use the lite bite feature. we set the front tight enough to not get false releases. then set the lite bite arm as loose as it will go and not fall out. my hot lures in july was a pink with blue dots and dr death and reverse muffin spoons from galeforcetackle.com. took us less than 5 hrs to get limits for 5 but only fishing 6 rods with lite bite slide divers.
  8. watch for open seats and go out with guys thats been doing it for awhile or get some guys together and take a charter out. if you take a charter out make sure he fishes the same program your using boards, divers, inline weights. this yr has been awesome for fishing erie.

    Fuel question

    I run a mercruiser 5.7 in my old 86 boat. I don't have and non ethanol gas in my area. so I've been running pump gas in it for about 10 yrs now. the only problem I've had was it was used 1 time in 2016 then parked in the pole barn. wasnt used at all last yr. I didnt put stabil in in 2016 but added it in 2017. the boat started right up and idled good. but when I got her on erie and gave it throttle it started to backfire. with each new tank of gas it got better. we fished for 4 days on erie and filled up 4 times. by the 4th day it didnt backfire. this yr I added marine stabil to the gas and after it had time to get mixed in good I added stabil and run the motor until I knew it filled the gas line.

    The Fence

    I went to the wed sight and didnt see any pink frog harnesses. they had an iris colored blade that looks good. but then I like the blades on other harnesses. but I didnt like the price. I get almost all my harnesses from galeforcetackle.com for a lot less money. dr death and reverse muffin has been great for me up on erie. I am just a satisfied customer of them and nothing more. if you want double blades let vicki know.

    welcome to the sight. I caught my first walleye ice fishing for crappie through the ice back in 81. been hooked on them ever since. it was a 9 1/2 lb 29 1/2" monster and I caught her on light tackle with 4 lb line.
