Almost a Guide

Almost a Guide (5/10)



  1. That 1st generation R2 475 is a great reel, and about the only thing that can go wrong with them is the ratchet spring, ( Easy to replace) and the bearings. Should it need service I'm only an email or phone call away. https://www.kingpinreels.com/contact
  2. If you want to see some crazy stuff watch this on YouTube; https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=79th+street+boat+ramp The guy is even hiring videographers !
  3. I have no problem with reversing mono on my center pin. Why not save a few bucks when you can? The 150 yds you never use is as good as the day you put it on, in most cases. And burying the 50 or so yds that you do use makes sense!
  4. That is going to be some blow......🙃
  5. You are getting a better deal on the launch fees at Fishmaster than most. Sign says $10, which is what I've been paying for a couple of years.
  6. Old Ironmaker is bang on with his description of the edibility of them. Smaller ones were better tasting than the big ones due to amount of dark lateral line on the big ones. Only worth eating within 24 hours.
  7. Cabelas also has their brand of bags on sale occasionally. I find the 6X10 and 8X12 to be very handy.
  8. I've got a Fenwick Boron 721. It was my favourite in the spring from the boat at Thornbury and Meaford when the splake were stocked heavy. Very sensitive !
  9. Awesome! You have set the standard for a fishing post for us all!
  10. Prices not terrible at all, if the fish was good. Here is a copy of the menu from the Erie Beach. A platter (16oz) of either Perch or Pickerel no sides is still the best around
  11. Double cotton jacket rubber lined 65mm is best. To make even more effective put a small pool noodle inside. Fasten every 2-3 feet and hide the nails in the edge above and below the noodle. No marks on the boat and safe . Some fire depts cut the couplings off the hose and give away to members for this purpose. Know any firefighters who could ask the repair guy?
  12. Being able to get out of the hole is easier with a lower number prop, and it will increase the RPMs as well,(be careful about over revs) but it won't give you an increase in speed.
  13. I'm betting that Monday will be the start of the better fishing. Was there last week, and caught a couple of cats
