  1. Gezz Smerch, I just saw your post my friend,😱 hope your doing OK. Just reading it makes my finger hurt.😱 I guess I've been lucky not getting a hook in passed the barb, been close a few times. Taker easy for a few days.πŸ‘
  2. You should have been here yesterday
  3. Thanks Gil, and congrats on finding a few Perch, did better than me my last time out there Only 2 Perch all day and a half tank of gas.
  4. I go to Northern Battery on Parkdale Ave in Hamilton.
  5. You can try Jim, that where I go.
  6. I was always told Smerch a slow 2 amp charge on a deep cycle was best. Myself I'm not a battery Tec.. Now that I have an onboard charger for my 24 volt setup, my Minkota charger doesn't have a amp selection on it just lights that go from yellow to green when fully charged. At times I've had it plugged in for weeks, apparently it goes into a maintaining mode. Then I was told not to use a starting battery as a deep cycle, their not good on draining and charging. I talked to the guy at Northern Battery in Hamilton and asked him about using a deep cycle as a starting battery he said why not, that's even better with lots of things I have connected to my starting battery, so I went to a small size Deep Cycle starting battery. I have a small battery maintainer I plug it into once in awhile just to giver a little boost.
  7. Hay Smerch, what ever works bud, as long as we can still put a line in, thats all that counts.πŸ‘
  8. I like that one Gil, I'll give it a try.πŸ‘ See, you can always learn something no mater how old you are.πŸ‘ Now the problem is remembering it.
  9. If you want to use the auto pilot to steer you in a strait line, I put my main motor in gear and position it strait, with Ipilot down set on 2,3.4 push the ( N ) on your remote., true Strait, hold the the N button down, the circle will vanish around the (N) If you want to change directions use the arrows left or right on your remote. This works great trolling by yourself.
  10. Now that really makes sense Well, he can put it at the dock and leave then go up the road to Costco and shop with a hundred people. Now I know why people get voted out of council.
  11. OH, and it's only going to get worse.
  12. When did this all start, you have to ask yourselfπŸ™‰πŸ™ŠπŸ™ˆ
  13. Just move the barrier and launch.πŸ‘ If you have any trouble park on the entrance of a golf course.πŸ‘
  14. Funny you mention the the black Dacron line Smerch, and we use to catch fish on it. Now they want us to use Flora carbon. OH! the good old daysπŸ‘ Great looking wall Smerch, I bet it makes you reminisce at times
  15. I've never had a problem with OR16's , I know they're a little pricey but Bill's Bait has knockoffs now. 2 for 10.00 Unless your talking about a lure snap, I find the Torpedo stuff pretty good.
  16. I've seen your tackle Bruce and used your jigs, you are with the best of them. Myself and my buddies use your jigs and their great. One thing your ahead of the pack is your homemade preserves πŸ‘
  17. My report, arrived at 7;45 am and was lots out fishing already, got on the ice at the ramp at the yacht club but was sketchy, I wore my high boots didn't brake through. Stayed on the trail going out, not to far, ended up fishing in-front of the club house. Got set up in 15 FOW with one rod with minnows and other jigging with a Buckshot and minnow. I couldn't believe the fish on my sonar screen, marks kept coming and going but not interested in what I had. Lots of people were coming and going all the time I was there. I had enough, and left at 3;15 not one tap. I talked to a few guys that said they have better results late afternoon till dark. "Watch" going off, I stepped through the ice at the ramp getting off,😱 lucky I had high boots. Ice I fished on was 7" , was some slushy places walking out. Be Careful. Better luck next time
  18. Hope I can give you a report Smerch. My old bones are hurting today from my snow work out yesterday also. Heading out soon.
  19. Little sip of Fireball or Brandy would be nice, a little I saidπŸ˜€
  20. Smerch go to your Windows Accessories and use the Sniping Tool, I stuck it on my bottom bar, you can copy anything on your monitor as a jpeg file.
  21. I have the Helix 7 DI and love it very user friendly. Only thing I find the down imaging is a gimmick, I have it turned off on my views. Only screens I use is split screen GPS and Finder, Zoom Split, whole GPS, Whole Depth. I think Dave ( rbrwrm ) will agree. Only thing I wish I had bought was the Helix 9 because it has 2 card slots.
  22. Yes I would look for a 100' cable 10' or less is from your unit to where camera enters the water, so you lose 10' or less there.
  23. Mine is the same as Gil, now it sits in my basement collecting dust. The new ones are better and colored, make sure you get 100' cable, my old AquaView has only 50' cable, Black&White tube. On a few ice fishing bus trips it rescued a lot of fishing rods, It keeps kids amused, young and older.πŸ˜€ As Gil says it's a learning tool, watching fish and how they react to your bait.
  24. If they lock down I can see it after because they want you to spend, then after sit home and worry about paying😱πŸ˜ͺπŸ˜€
