    Best Pike Fishing

    Check out the walleye central forums. There's one for canada and its frequented by Americans that travel to Ontario all the time. Tons of advise on outfitters w/American plan offerings. Lac Soul is a popular destination for trophy fish. They may also have recommendations for northers Manitoba and Saskatchewan outfitters because these provinces are world famous for trophy pike.

    How to choose braided line.

    That's a good point. Baitcasters are many times more complex than spinning reels which means you have to spend a bit more to get something in the middle of the bell curve. Curado yes, Tatula yes... I have a Tatula type R that I just love and it works in all kinds of senarios (and looks better doing it than the shimano...lol).

    How to choose braided line.

    As previously mentioned, your application would help us with a recommendation. Also, as previously mentioned there's really no 'bad braid" out there. The only one I really didn't like was PP super slick as I found it would dig in on the spool which made casting problematic. Generally, I use plain old Power Pro Green (spectra) for everything from Bass to Muskie. Its the benchmark/industry standard braid and can usually be found on sale. Also, the mono backing idea is a great way to save a few $$. Another option is that you put on a full spool of braid and after a few seasons you run it off onto another reel so the unused portion is now on the outside of the spool. For mono backing, Berkley big game is an economic choice.

    ipilot questions

    you dont' lubricate the belt. Keep the shaft clean and spray it with a silicone lube from time to time. The Gen 1 issues were around the position sensors. If you ever end up needing repair, the only place to go in southern ont is Rocky's in Orillia. I had a very bad "Minn Kota" experience at Aikmans.

    ipilot questions

    I've owned several different MKs over the last 5 years so based on that, here are my comments: Don't limit yourself on features, you will grow into them. I would never buy a bow mount w/o a transducer for example. Although the Ulterra is pretty slick and safer to deploy, because you travel as far as Nip, I would go with a Terrova as they have fewer parts that can go bad. FYI, I have a gen 2 ulterra that took 3 trips to the repair depot last year to figure out an issue. As others have said, 24 volt is enough, 36 is better. Go 36 if you have a spot for 3 grp 31 batteries. If you don't, 24 it is. Also, get an on-board charger with an extra bank to charge your starting battery.

    Good point, the numbers don't add up. Unless..... multiple offenses going to one hunter. It looks like each offender had the book thrown at em.
  12. Seriously considering going out tomorrow (Nov. 4th) for some fall muskie. Temps look decent and not much wind... Not sure if we'll get another day like it this year.. If you're interested please PM me. Will be leaving from Courtice (between Oshawa and Bowmanville).

    ETEC 135 HO 1st Impressions - NF

    I'm currently running 2 Evinrude HOs,, a 250 gen 2 and a 15 kicker. Both are 2 stroke and they are fantastic. Here are my comments: You'll love the auto winterization mode. There is a way to do it even if you don't have the ICON gauges. 2 stroke torque - cant beat it. My 250 goes into limp mode once my oil tank (internal) hits 1/4. Something to keep in mind. Dunno about the 15 as its still on its 1st tank. Fuel and oil economy (post breakin) are exceptional around 3000 to 3500 rpm. My G2 is very fussy with fuel quality. I didnt add enough stabilzer last winter and it complained through the that tank of fuel. New fuel, no issues. Very solid performance and super easy to start (both). I would take in every 2-3 yrs just to get it hooked up to the diagnotic system and to upload any software updates that came out. Enjoy
