  1. You can also look at the Simrad Cruise (similar to the Go, but does not have a touchscreen). As far as the the best place to buy, I'd just suggest googling them and buying from the cheapest reputable dealer. I know the GPS Store, Defender Marine, and Hodges Marine are all reputable and have good prices. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  2. I'd vote for either Simrad or Garmin. You can get a Simrad Go XSE 7 for $499 or certwin Garmin EchoMap's in the $499 to $599 range. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  3. Call Bob Luellen at worldwide marine. He can help you figure out what you need. He's a fisherman and really gets it. http://www.worldwidemarineins.com/ Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  4. Your probably letting them out too fast. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  5. If the rigger has its own lure and hooks, it should be classified as a rod & reel. Of the lure and hooks are on a separate line, then it shouldn't. I know Ohio gets very specific about how many single or treble hooks can be on any given rod & reel. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  6. I meant to say can't be classified as a rod and reel. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  7. Where do the regs say rod and reel can be a downrigger crank and boom? You'd just be running stranded wire, BIG inline weight, and a short leader. As long as you weren't over your rod limit, i think you'd be legal. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  8. I like the Okuma Classic Pro GLT lake trolling rod in 7'6" for my board rods. They also make dipsy and dow rigger rods as well. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  9. I have heard of guys doing this before for walleye. Usually with a little longer leader. Works great until you get a steelhead full of piss and vinegar on. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  10. I've always been taught that both can be eyes. Long ribbon means they are relatively still compared to the transucer, the hook or arch means they were moving, but at the same depth. And upward or downward line slope they were coming up or diving. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  11. Here is my theory. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  12. Glad you had a good trip! Now you'll be more prepared for your next trip! Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  13. There is a website listed above. www.reelcoollures.com Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  14. I see a thermocline setup around 42' to 45' with baitfish right above it and the feeding fish hanging out right below it. I'd be targeting about 40' with cranks or spoons and trolling fast (2.5+ knots). Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  15. Ohio cut the perch limit to 10 in MU 2 (managent unit #2 in Ohio). Thats Huron to Fairport Harbor. They should have extended it to the PA line as our perch fishing is dreadful out here in MU 3. I hope whatever is affecting our perch numbers out here doesn't extend to your end of the lake. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  16. Right now, its a walleye slaughter out there. I'm a little east of Cleveland in Ashtabula, and its been quick limits of impressive walleye. This past Saturday it almost took longer to run out to the fish than catch em. We put 24 nice (24" - 28") fish in the box in about 2 hours. Make sure your rods are calibrated, you have large dipsys on hand and a tray full of spoons. Don't be afraid to troll fast (2.5 knots +). Seven colors of leadcore or 300' of single strand wire are doing well. Deep diving cranks with weights if you don't have lead or wire. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  17. #2 Duolock snap. When you clip the crank on, make sure the clip on the duolock is away from the lip of the crank. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  18. Because of the orientation of Erie being angled to the NE/SW, if we were fishing the 02 in Ashtabula, you can fish the 00 in Geneva and 04 in Conneaut. Thats a general rule of thumb. Its all about finding the right currents, temp, and baitfish. But in Conneaut, you find the humps and trenches that are more pronounced inside Pennsylvania can offer different opportunities.

  19. The 02 line is 8 miles out of Ashtabula and I would guess 4 to 5 miles out of Conneaut. Out of Ashtabula we fished inside the 02 until almost August when the lake really started to warm up. Then we had to venture out into the lake. The best way to locate walleye in the summer on our part of the lake is to look at the bottom temps. Once you find the colder water, you've found the walleye. See attached pic, that was from late August. Once the lake warms up, you gotta run out to where the (yellow) colder water is, at least for those of us who fish eastern OH waters. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  20. Small spoons off dipsys have been working well too. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  21. Right now their are walleye in shallow, 50' or less. Been catching them up high, flatlining Rapala Husky Jerks from 75' to 150' out off the boards. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  22. In early May, I would head west of Cleveland, like Lorraine, OH. We have a resident population of walleye in Ashtabula, but if your dad wants a big girl, he'll need one that spawned out on the western reefs and then took off east as the water warmed. Those fish ususlly dont make it to my part of the lake until late June, early July. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  23. I fish out of Ashtabula OH on Erie for walleye. If your after a 10 lbs + walleye, run larger lures. We've been running the Michigan stinger magnum spoons off of true trips and the old Bombers #17's (their about 8" long) off wire or leadcore. The bigger lures trolled at summer speeds (2.5 knots and above) do extremely well. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  24. 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
  25. 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
