  1. ^^^ Good point here. I suspect an Northeast wind isn't as bad in Buffalo as it is in Ashtabula. So location is important! Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  2. 5-15 knots if the wind is out of the south or west (or any combination) if it's out of the North (east or west), nothing more than 10 knots. At least until you learn the lake. If you look at it that way, when you get caught in some weather, and eventually you will, it wont be too bad. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  3. 20 knots, but it depends upon the direction. Down here in the Central basin of Erie, anything out of the N or NE probably gets lowered to 15 knots. Oh, and I have a 20,000 lbs boat. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  4. I fish 20lbs single strand stainless wire and the dive curve is 1' for every 10' of wire out + your crank depth. So, if you run a Rapala DHJ-12 which has a max trolling depth of 19' and 300' of wire. You running 49' deep at 2 mph. 180' and 300' are common leads down here in the Central Basin.

  5. Down here in the Central Basin, some guys are using these since they are having a hard time catching them on emerald shiners. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  6. I installed a Simrad Cruise instead of the Go model as wasn't sure of the touchscreen. That said, you can't go wrong with the Garmin. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk

  8. When we run into the problem of small fish, we out fishing bells on our dipsy rod tips. They will jingle with a 6" walleye on. Clip on near the rod tip and thread the line thru them. https://www.amazon.com/Teenitor-Fishing-Installing-Sticks-Indicators/dp/B07TZFZTMX/ref=mp_s_a_1_1_sspa?keywords=fishing+bell&qid=1567778138&s=gateway&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyMkhVNkxLUkhSTTNXJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNDU2MjY3WDBKSzlXNjc5SFpOJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTA5NjU1MzUzVTBaMU0yNFRCOVVRJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfcGhvbmVfc2VhcmNoX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU= Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  9. I use American Fishing Wire in a single strand stainless. I personally use 20 lbs test but many run 12 lbs test. I buy it in 300' spools and put all 300 on the reel on top of backing. You will also need a haywire tool to make the twists as you can't knot stainless. https://afwfishing.com/afw_products/G020-4.asp Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  10. Looks like a Bomber Long A, I just can't identify the color scheme. https://www.fishusa.com/Bomber-Long-A Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  11. If it's cranking and not firing, the first think I would say is change the plugs (2 strokes need a little TLC) If it's not cranking over, check all of your battery connections and make sure their clean. Sent from my XT1635-01 using Tapatalk
  12. I think we'll need a little more information here... Are you saying that you need to crank your motor for up to 10 minutes before it starts? And what kind of motor are you talking about? Sent from my XT1635-01 using Tapatalk
  13. Only one box? I have two for walleye (one set of small and the other large) and three trays of Steelhead spoons! Sent from my XT1635-01 using Tapatalk
  14. My rule of thumb is to make your leader the length of your rod. Sent from my XT1635-01 using Tapatalk
  15. I run my big boards off of trees. I can usually read the rod tips to determine which if any rod has a fish on it. One thing we do, especially when it's rough is to half hitch two rubber bands together to make one long one. Then use that. It'll stretch really long if there is a fish on that rod. The downside is if it's not rough or your boards don't pull strong enough, they are hard to break or trip. Another tip is to troll faster! Makes reading the rods much easier.
