  1. I agree that its a good idea, but im not aware of it being a requirement, which is why I'm asking. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  2. Do you have a source for the throwable requiring a line attached to it? I've had my boat courtesy inspected for over 20 by the USCG every year and that has never been mentioned. Only that the throwable is easily accessible. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  3. Missed this part! If the boat was built after January 1 2020, older boats aren't required to have it is what I read, scroll down the link to where "requirements" is printed in red and click on it! They spell it out rather nice! Q6. What boats need to have an Engine Cut-Off Switch installed? A6. Boats less than 26 feet in length that generate more than 115lbs of static thrust (~ 2-3hp) and were built beginning in January 2020. If the boats’ primary helm is inside an enclosed cabin it is not required to have an Engine Cut-Off Switch. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  4. First time i saw inlines in use was on Lake Michigan back in the mid 90's. They were the old foam yellowbirds where they were clipped onto the line with a swivel on the back side. So they stayed slid down the line until you netted the fish. It was something seeing a king break water with a yellowbird attached! Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  5. I wasn't aware of this new requirement until I saw it posted on another site. Requires boats under 26' to have a lanyard / kill switch while underway. https://coastguardnews.com/coa...MiGx4aBrTxv0yA3xZUFV1yGUVEVfDU Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  6. If your running three lines or more, big boards are easier to manage. Likewise, if you have a novice crew, big boards are easier to reset. Inlines are easier to get out past an outside dipsy. Other than that, its a personal preference. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  7. Non residents just need to purchase an extra Lake Erie permit for $11 to fish Lake Erie and its tributaries from January thru April. But fishing is open to non residents. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  8. Tiara 3600! 39'8" LOA, 13'9" beam. Twin Crusader 454's with a 400 gallon tank. She's a beast. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  9. Source? I can't find any news articles on this and would be interested in the details...Thx... Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  10. I think Mazurik has concrete docks and the duck hunters keep the ice open for as long as they can. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  11. The big schools which were in close out in front of Ashtabula are heading east. You guys may get some good fishing in yet this year. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  12. Nice looking boat. Enjoy! Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  13. Add a small barrel swivel about half way thru your leader. That should help. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  14. Pulled 25 walleye and 2 steel on Saturday. Lost a few walleye and another steel. Just got too hot to finish off that fifth ticket! Fished 60' out to 75' in a big U from in front of RedBrook to back around in front of Bula. #1 dipsy 130, #3 dipsy 160. True Trip 50's 100 back. 300' of wire with Pink or Blue Chrome Husky Jerks and 50' on the downrigger all pulled fish! Orange spoons ruled the day. Started getting hot and we pulled the plug at 11:30. Just couldnt convince my son to hang in there to finish off the 5th limit. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  15. When the fish go deep and are hanging out in that 50'+ range, we fish with single strand stainless wire and a deep diving crank just over the Ohio line from PA. Most spool up 300' of wire on top of backing on a reel and put a mono or fluro leader. Dive curve is 1' of depth for every 10' of wire + crank depth. So 300' of wire with a Rapala DHJ-12 will run 49' down at 2mph. It's very effective once the fish go deep. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
