  1. I've been there a couple of times. we have nothing that comes close to having the tackle in our area around Muncie IN. we fish out of Geneva Ohio for walleye. we wanted to get more sunspot walleye bandits like the one I had ordered online. so we made the drive and was rewarded for making the trip. not only did we find the bandit we were wanting but we ended up buying more cranks and some great spoons. we spent over 100.00 on both visits. I recommend going there just to see all the choices they have in a small place.
  2. if this radio has the built-in GPS for contacting the Coast Guard and you will ship it to me for 150.00 I will buy it for a spare. I live in Muncie IN 47302. I won't be in any hurry so cheap is better. but I ship almost everything with priority mail using the smallest package I can. priority mail is charged on the size of the package and the weight can go up to 70# for the same price.
  3. if your trying to sell it then a price would be nice.
  4. you might have better luck online. you can do a search for them on your computer or even try a google search. or check on places like Amazon and eBay.
  5. I just went to their site and spent 56.00 before I could close the site, LOL. great color choices.
  6. I just looked on the website and maybe buying a few before long. some of the ones I liked are out of stock and i would rather just make 1 order and be done, so i plan on waiting to see if they get restocked soon. I also messaged them about restocking the ones I want. one thing I would love to see is some with chrome backs, it may not be as good as what you have but on some days it just gives me more confidence in the flash-attracting fish.
  7. a guy on lakeontariounited.com has 4 of the caption pack for sale but doesn't have a price listed.
  8. thank you, guys, for posting. but when we tried to start our motor and it was locked up and had water in the cylinders. we went out on our 1st day last year and my son wimped out on me and turned around and came back in. the next time out it wasn't running right and we noticed it was overheating. i think on our 1st trip it was overheating and we didn't notice. then we shut down to get everything ready to come back in and when he started the motor with it hot and cold water from the lake might have cracked a head. or when we shut it down with it very hot and when the heads cooled a head warped just enough to cause it to blow a head gasket. then when we went back out the blown head gasket is why it wasn't running right. then we brought it home not knowing anything bad was wrong. but the cylinders had got enough water in them to rust the cylinder rings to lock up the motor. and we found out the motor had locked up when we started getting it ready for this year. The bottom line is we won't be going up this year. but next year we will be back. we have been doing good in July using larger spoons out past 70' of water out of Geneva Ohio the last couple of years. I can't really give you the depth but we used 65# power pro for our main line back 200'+ running 2.7 to 3.0 or as close as we could get using lite bite slide divers rigged like a dipsy. and caught mostly larger fish as the smaller ones didn't hit the larger spoons like they did the smaller spoons.
  9. this is lake erie united but I have seen -0- posts about fishing lake erie or tackle or method used and -0- reports on where to fish, tackle used, or reports.
  10. I am a firm believer that anyone starting out fishing Erie should take at least 1 day out on a charter using the style of fishing they are planning to use. I had trolled the western basin for a few years just flatlining cranks and catching plenty of fish. but when we moved to the central basin we were totally lost. so, we took a charter out that used dipsy divers to get down to the fish. I had never seen a dipsy used and had no idea what to do. i didn't choose a charter using them but it just turned out our charter used divers. I went out on a charter a few yrs later that ran inline boards but I liked using divers much better. on the 1st day, we had started setting our own lines with 6 lines out. on the second day of the charter, we were running everything but driving the boat. by the end of day 2, we were able to fish with 6 lines on our own. now we did still make mistakes the biggest being setting the rigs out on the wrong side of the boat. but to be really honest it would have taken us at least 10 yrs on our own to be able to learn what we did in 2 days on the charter. most people will never learn to run 6 divers unless someone teaches them. and we still did and still do need to learn. the biggest thing was getting to know how much line to let out to reach the fish. if you want to be a fair fisherman in Erie I highly recommend using a good charter like the one here or ask for recommended charters in the area you plan to fish the most.
  11. I haven't used any Garmin units but have read many positive reports on them and I believe with the right transducer the 93sv is a good unit for the money. Garmin has better units with great bells & whistles but you pay for those. I have all Lowrance HDS units that does everything I need for fishing and getting back to the dock. the 93sv should cover all your basic needs to find fish and show them on your screen. but it all depends on what you want out of a unit. but Garmin is a quality product. just my 2 cents worth. before you buy if your buying new check the prices on eBay and amazon before you buy. eBay has pretty good prices on the 93sv echomap units
  12. where are all the walleye fishermen on the LEU site. this would be a great place to share your experiences on Lake Erie. i haven't got anything to post about Erie at this time of year but will be glad to offer what little I know if someone asks for Erie info on here. I am getting old and only fish 1 week in July each year but I enjoyed many trips each year starting back in the late 70s on the western basin but moved to the central basin some years ago.
  13. nope, but we have taken them out with us. but just maybe thats why we have such a hard time catching fish, LOL. maybe someone important slipped on a banana peel and started saying they were bad luck, and it grew from there, LOL.
  14. hey guys i'm guilty of not posting enough on this site. i have been a member for some time with very few posts. we have plenty of members that fish Erie. but not only do we like hearing about Erie but any type fishing you want to post. you can even post about things non fishing related. let's get this site up and running so we have a place to come to for whatever. lake erie has been my fishing grounds for about 45 yrs now. we got started in the western basin and went about every weekend from memorial weekend until the middle or late july. the way we got started was by following some friends up that fished there. these guys told us how to fish and what weight forwards spinners to have. we followed them out from collie canal and went past the intake about half way to west sister and shut down. we were using all spinning gear and let out line until we thought was enough. then we set our rods against the gunnel and just let the boat drift. we usually had our limits by noon each day fishing this way. after a few yrs. the zebra mussel cleared the water, and the fish numbers went down and the fish were more scattered, so we started trolling. we were still using spinning gear. we used the 2" hot n tot and the wiggle wart as our go to bait. but we tried any deep diving plug at one time or the other. we just let baits out enough we thought it would catch fish and it did. a few yrs. later we moved to the central basin because they were getting bigger fish. but it was a whole new ball game. i bought all new line counter reels and rods. but i didn't know squat about how to fish it. so we took a charter out 2 days that used dipsy divers. on the 1st day we started helping him set lines and reset them after we got a fish. by the 2nd day we did all thew work and the caption just watched over us. by the time we went on our own we were able to run 3 divers per side plus 1 downrigger per side. we did get a few tangles but that got much better as we learned more about fishing with divers. our biggest thing we still needed to find fish and how far out our divers needed to be to get down to the fish. then i changed divers to the cannon deeper divers that dixdn't use rings that kept coming off on the dipsy. but later i gave the lite bite slide diver. and i use then like a dipsy and don't use the slide part but love the lite bite feature because to me it's priceless. i will never switch back to the standard diver. good luck next season and start posting.
