  1. 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

  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. My rule of thumb is to make your leader the length of your rod. Sent from my XT1635-01 using Tapatalk
  10. 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.

  12. To quote a charter captain out of Ashtabula regarding wire, "that sh!t just catches fish"! I don't have much experience with leadcore (did try it for one season). With wire, we are getting our lures far from the boat (up to 150' out on the planer tow line and 300' back to the crank). Those big fish didn't get big by getting caught. They seem shy of the boat. Two popular lengths with wire are 180' and 300'. Probably with 20' diving cranks your getting just below the first thermocline and just above the second one out where we fish. Another thing we do is switch out the cranks. I personally like Rapala DHJ-12's, but also like the Yozuri 4 3/8 deep diving for faster speeds. It's a salt water lure, but we've rolled it was fast as 3.5 knots on wire and they just rip it off the tow line. The downside to wire is if your running alot of lines, an autopilot is recommended, or at least a really good driver. Tangles just suck! Sent from my XT1635-01 using Tapatalk
  13. True trip 50's already have a weight on the front side of them and will dive to 50' (we tested in 50' of water and ticked bottom). But I'm not sure how much deeper they will dive that that. We run true trip 40's early and 50's when the fish go deeper. One advantage of a true trip over a jet diver is the true trip has a release like a dipsy. So once a fish trips it, it's easier to tell you have a fish on. Sent from my XT1635-01 using Tapatalk
  14. We catch the big walleye on wire! And walleye aren't known to be great fighters, just great eaters!!! Sent from my XT1635-01 using Tapatalk
  15. We run true trip which are similar to a jet diver, just a little better dive curve. We typically run the true trips off of planer boards and dipsy's off the corners of the boat. True Trips dive straight down as opposed to dipsy's which are directional. Likewise, dipsy's have a hunk of lead in them and will sink at rest as opposed to a true trip which will float and dive when forward motion is applied. So you get a different presentation. On a turn, an inside dipsy will sink and a true trip will rise. They are very effective at catching fish. You can troll shallow diving cranks, spoons, or worm harnesses behind them just like you would a dipsy. Sent from my XT1635-01 using Tapatalk
