Lund Alaskan

You may wish to consider a Lund Alaskan. The DC2000 (20ft walk-through) with a 4s 115 and a 9.9 kicker would fit your budget. The Alaskan has a wide-open floor plan, with removable pedestal seats,...

20 ft Alaskan

My boat is close to ideal for me - DC2000 in marsh brown with 115 and 9.9 4S Mercs. I put in some lights (led strips lights and removable stanchion-type flood lights) for fishing at night, and I...

Bouncing rod & reel

I do a lot of bottom bouncing. For relatively shallow water with weights of 1 oz or less, I use a St. Croix Eyecon bounce n' troll rod (7' MHM). For heavier weights, I really like to use a St. Croix...

Dragging BB's

I drag bottom bouncers all of the time on Lake Erie. In NYS, you are allowed to fish with 3 rods per person. I will often run two deadstick rods dragging BB's with worm harnesses (~70-100 ft out with...

Bouncing Rods

I have the St. Croix Eyecon bounce n' troll and the St. Croix Premier 7 ft med-heavy casting rod. For 2 - 3 oz weights, the Premier rod is vastly superior to the Eyecon. The Eyecon rods are rated up...

Trolling with clicker

I use Diawa Accudepth LC 17 and 27 reels, and I often troll with use of the clickers. This works well for me with any unweighted plug, and with harnesses with up to 3oz of weight. In-line boards pull...

I bought a couple Cabela's AGM gr 27 batteries about 3 years ago. They have worked well, with no problems. I bought them on a big sale (~ half price). I believe that Cabela's runs this sale every...

Bouncing rod

In past years, I have used 10 lb XT for bouncing, but this year I am moving to a new set-up: St. Croix Eyecon bouncing rod, Abu Garcia Silver Max flipping reel, and 20 lb Power-Pro.
I like the idea...

Worm Harnesses - How many do you bring?

Although I have used quick change clips, I find that I prefer having pre-tied complete harnesses (vs. switching blades). I believe that I am a little addicted to tying up worm harnesses.:happy: So,...

Binders

For spinners (worm harnesses), I really like Cabela's Tackle Utility Binders. I put my spinners in 2x3" plastic bags, and then put the bags in the pockets of the binder. This takes up much less space...

Thanks

Thank you for the replies. I have typically run sticks at higher speeds (> 1 mph), but I am now thinking of putting out a couple of "deadstick" rods with stickbaits during times when I am rigging or...

What stickbaits are best for slow trolling?

Do any stickbaits have "decent" action at very slow trolling speeds (0.5 - 0.75 mph)? Flat raps? Thudersticks? Thanks - Joe

Does the HDS-7 Gen2 use the same power and transducer connections as the HDS-5? With the deal for $649 (after rebate), I am thinking about moving the HDS-5 Gen1 that I have on the counsel to the bow,...

Rage - deal

I received a M 6' 8" XF Rage rod through the St. Croix Christmas deal (I bought an Avid and a Premier). I am impressed with the Rage rod. It has a great feel, and I think that it will be perfect for...

Thank you for the replies

Thank you for the replies. I have a 5 year old terrova and, based on the replies, I feel that it makes no sense to upgrade to the ipilot link. I think that it would make much more sense (to me) if...

What is the lifespan of a Terrova?

Does anyone have an estimate for the average lifespan of a Minn Kota trolling motor? 5 years? 10 years? I am sure that many variables come into play, but I am mostly looking for a rough, ballpark...

Lock?

Hi MarkG:
Sorry for my ignorance, but what is the "lock" that you refer to with turning over the engine with the plugs in?
Thanks,

Backtrolling for perch

In my neck of the woods, everyone seems to anchor and fish with spreaders. Most often the fish are ~50 ft deep. Backtrolling for perch sounds like much more fun. I assume that you are fishing minnows...

I bought a couple of the LC27 combo's a couple of years ago, when I started trolling. The rods are pool cues, and they take much of the enjoyment out of playing fish. You may be better off by buying...
