  1. Today
  2. Looks great Sea Eagle. I like your rod/reel organization too. I took off my Magnum Metalz downriggers, lubed them up, cut off some cable and added new Klincher ends. I am ready to troll this coming spring (or if we get some calm days out in Frankfort), but I put the sport top up and I am now configured for perch jigging. I can quickly change back to trolling if we get an Indian summer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I purchased my Big Jon Tournaments along with my tracks and Berts ratcheting rod holders at the GR sports show many years ago now. I've moved them between my boats by just adding new tracks. I've used both Berts and Traxstech tracks. My downriggers are mounted on Big Jon swivel bases. Here is a photo of my set up on my latest boat. You can definitely save a bunch of money by buying at the spring shows. I picked up my trees at a swap meet for $75 for the pair. I might also be the guy Dan was talking about who runs 300 Cu and 10 colors of leadcore on church Walleye boards. If you have one, I did need to fabricate a new pick up for my Depth Raider speed/temp probe so the bead for the auto stops on the down riggers would pass through. I made it out of some flared copper tubing, a couple of tubing clamps and some zip ties. Here is a close up of that.

  7. The only issue you will have at super low speeds is if you are experiencing a moderate to strong crosswind. I use 300 coppers and 100yd leadcore set-ups behind big boards. The only problem is getting a pinch pad release to hold against the strong pull. Solved that by putting a #16 rubber band on the line and pinching the rubber band in the pinch pad. The band grips tighter, but when it stretches when a fish pulls, it get's smaller in the grip and will either just break or release from the pinch pad. You'll probably have better luck running the tether from a Tee-Top than from a center mounted mast. Don't be too quick to switch. It probably won't be money well spent.
  8. Location Dunkirk NY 14048 1984 Mercury 75 hp, no trim and tilt. I have a set of newer controls that go with it. Will need an impeller. Will start and run. I bought this a year ago from the retiring owner of a boat repair shop. He has kept this inside for a number of years for a project which never occurred. $825.00 or best offer
  9. After dark casting crank baits at Luna Pier, Sterling State park beach off the rock wall or the beach in waders. They come in shallow in the fall when waters cool.
  10. Last week
  11. Newbie here. My last fishing trip out on the Lake Erie. I ended up catching around 30 bass in just a few hours in the morning. It was a good day for sure. Love to hear and input on the video I put together of the day of fishing. Thanks and tight lines. Lake Erie Early Fall Transition Bass
  12. Any suggestions on how/where to fish for Walleye from shore?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I know some walleye guys use them and they will troll around 1 to 1.8. Towing those umbrella rigs might be tricky with the big boards. Sent from my LG-Q710AL using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App

  15. I've run them down to 1.3 to 1.5 and they pull OK but I don't think there are many trollers in the Great Lakes Region that can answer your question down to .3, I don't know anyone trolling that slow here.
  16. They probably will not pull tight at that speed. Maybe if you make a set of triple words instead of double it’s quite possible they will pull good at that speed.
  17. Earlier
  18. Hello All, I wanted to make a video to describe a New York home-grown method of trolling deep water.
  19. Is this still available? Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
  20. Camp has been closed and winterized for the 2019 season but realtor will still show it. Contact Ron Papke 315-608-1233
  21. They were fishing Lake Ontario on the Canadian side. Near Mississauga area. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman
  22. Those will work but they are a bit big. We normally use #6 baitholder hooks. When water temps start dropping in the coming weeks, spawn fishing should turn on. For whitefish in November use small #12 hooks for single or double eggs.
  23. Figured they were flushed out of a river with all of the rain. I caught a LT several years ago with 1 bgill in it. That too was after heavy rains. But yeah, pretty unusual. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman
  24. Crazy! Wonder where he picked them up? Could it be they just swam out into the lake and are feeding similar to perch fry and alewives.
  25. Fished PS for a couple of hours on Saturday morning. Caught 1 coho, 235 FOW and 1 LT 110 FOW. The interesting thing was that the coho had 6 small bluegills in its belly. Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman
  26. Where are you located? PM sent. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  27. Bought these from bikinibottom early this season, put them in the water one time, my downriggers did not like pulling them up.(rookie mistake). Looking for 8 or 10# sharks will sell for 150tyd on the pair. They got thrashed on the boat from rolling around in my compartment. Sent from my SM-N950U using Great Lakes Fisherman Mobile App
