  1. How's the topwater bite for them?
  2. Sad all around. Being out in the middle of a lake, at night with zero lights on is asking for problems. That's just carelessness. If there's a lawsuit, I won't be surprised if it's against the owner of the boat who got hit by not following the laws in place for navigation lighting.
  3. That will make quick work of the pedals lol!
  4. That's what I'm running now. Also have another pair of older Freestones as backups. Another pro tip. Sheet metal screws for studs in your wading boots
  5. Waders and breathable shouldn't be used in the same sentence. I don't care which set of Simms you get, you're going to sweat if you do any sort of hiking. That being said, Simms are all I've ever had. Sent them back a few times for repairs and no issues. Neoprenes for when it gets super cold out. And you definitely want to layer.. 1. Polypropylene base layer 2. Fleece/wool second layer 3. Your waders. Absolutely no cotton anywhere. Get a set of ragwool/alpaca mitts to keep your hands toasty even if they get wet.
  6. I'd find the deep weed edges and start there. I'll assume the boat you're renting has a fish finder?
  7. Toss it in a vice and get is as straight as possible. Replacement shouldn't be very expensive if you've gotta go that route.
  8. Topwater smallie bite should almost be in full swing right now. Won't last very long though.
  9. Don't believe so as it's not listed in either the East or West UNO districts of Timiskaming. It's also now apart of Temiskaming Shores.
  10. I'd fish the weed edges in the evening for crappie. Little stuff like Lunker City Fin-S plastics tossed to the edge and worked back as been deadly for me. You'll also find crappies pushing bait fish up against the edges and possibly seeing swirls on the surface. The action is usually hot and heavy then it just comes to a complete stop. Small body baits should also work well. I find edges in 12-15ft with access to deeper water are usually the best in the waters I fish.
  11. Do yourself a favour and get EZLube hubs. I'll never have another trailer without them.
  12. Ignore him, that will drive him even more crazy.
  13. Those are some nice Gbay fish!
  14. No problem Brian, glad you can get some use out of it. Did you export waypoints/routes from your old unit? They're stored internally and not on the card. Power up the old unit with the card in it, once booted up, export the waypoints to the SD card. After that, boot up the new unit, let it power on all the way, insert the chip card and it will prompt you to import data from SD card. You say 'Yes' and all should be good.
  15. I don't use an inline fuse with my Helix 5 when I ice fish. Right to the battery.
  16. I've had no issues using PP's this year for fishing. The one I use the most has actually been free Mon-Thurs. No day pass required and free launching
  17. Small males will always stay shallow for the most part. The big females will be off the edges. They like cooler water temps then muskie do, so think deep.
  18. Yeah you need an external GPS for this model. What are you running now for a graph?
  19. Put a new graph on the bow so this one has to go. Humminbird 958 DI. Comes with a XNT 20 9 T transducer (Brand new, never used), power cord, cable management connector and the mount. Unit is in great condition with no screen bubbling (Which seems to be common on the old HB units if left out in the sun). No external GPS puck included. S400.
  20. This week of stable weather should help and those lower overnight temps.
  21. As big as a screen as you can afford. Your boat is probably pre-wired to the front as well, no need to add a second battery.
  22. Not a lake you'll want to fish for musky.
