  1. Past hour
  2. The two easily accessed towns are Ketchikan and Sitka. Alaska air drops you into both. My choice would be Craig, Alaska on Prince of Wales Island. That is either a ferry ride or float plane trip from Ketchikan. You might not get the bear viewing you seek but the whole southeast part of the state is stunning. The Kenai peninsula is just run over with people now and just not the same. Kisutch
  3. Didn't think this would take off like this, but it got me off to do some research and I found some pretty interesting, at least to this old shop teacher, stuff pertaining to threads, bolts and TORQUE. (I just wrote a long, long explanation of what's going on when you tighten a bolt and decided to delete it because who really cares except race car drivers and astronauts) I always try to follow manufacurer's recommendations. Somebody a lot smarter than me writes them, and for good reason. That's why the NO ADDITIONAL LUBE position. I say additional because the plating is there to provide a controlled amount of slippage so torque readings are consistent. Yesterday I changed my plugs and had just looked this up. Factory plugs in a 2017 Merc 90 Fourstroke. 556 hours. Thats a lot of heat/cool cycles. No evidence of lube on the old plugs, and they all came out just fine. New ones went in dry, torqued. Will let you know at 1000. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. You know I think if we step back a bit and look at all of these watersheds they all have changed to varying degrees and much of it is the result of human interactions of various types and degrees. Everything from the salmon runs in Alaska and the northwest, shut down of the Cod fishing in the Atlantic and problems with the Finger Lakes fishing (e.g. Seneca lake and many others). The climate is changing, and we've had many invasive species of both plants and animals that have upset the natural balancing act of Mother Nature. Land development and use along the lakes and waterways and pollutants of varying types and concentrations have entered these waters. Even things that may be ignored or that some are unaware of is our own boat motors potentially contributing to problems; especially in smaller bodies of water because most water treatment processes don't fully take out all of the potential pollutants. Regardless of political views etc. this is the reality and it has been creeping up on us for some time now and this situation is global in nature if you carefully look at science and the glaring disappearance of many species of animals and plants and changes in land masses. The disappearing frogs and honeybees are just "canaries in the coal mine" and many folks aren't listening or perceiving their demise. Sorry for the rant but we seem myopic and may not be fully looking at the main problem (climate change in conjunction with human interaction with the environment)..
  5. Today
  6. Put that same round in yesterday and it went boom, hit the target dead center too! 😂
  7. Bob, I am in Steuben County. Some holes remain the same but where I caught them last year all the structure left with the high water. Even the bass relocated. I do not know much about Susky and how much change it goes thru with high water but rivers can change. I thought I saw that there are good numbers of young fish up in Vestal. I have always found river walleye fishing challenging but rewarding as well.
  8. Play catch up at work! Maybe fill a doe tag. Bit more importantly making plans with my kid for muzzleloader season. Hoping to get him an opportunity at one of the other bucks that are around. Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  11. FullCircle. I have a 1996 sportcraft 252 with a inboard and 18hp nissan kicker that I will be selling in the spring. Iam putting in a new transmission because the old owner ran it dry. It also has a toilet with holding tank and pump out. It comes with a dual axle trailer that will have new tires on aswell. Let me know if interested.

  13. If it were me I'd be listening carefully to Hank's advice
  14. Still not sure about the anti " Permatex Anti-Seize Lubricant " [ sorry for the pun but I get that way after not been able to go fishing !] argument ! Do as you wish I will continue to use it unless I get a good reason not to ! How about putting 30W oil on the plug , which I have done ! Again that spark plug was probably overtightened but how would you ever know ?
  15. LOCBA Meeting Update  LOCBA Members, I regret to inform you that the Board of Directors has decided to suspend our monthly membership meetings for the time being. The pandemic and the policies resulting from have created daily challenges that for all of us and I believe that it is in our best interest as a club to suspend our activities until we see a positive change. The Board of Directors will continue to review this and will notify the membership when we are ready to resume. Feel free to reach out to me personally if something arises that needs to be dealt with. I am certainly willing to have a board of directors meeting if something needs to be addressed. Thanks, Captain Rob Westcott- LOCBA President 585-703-0969 PO Box 1046 Webster, NY 14580 www.locba.com [email protected]
  16. Its amazing how much time we spend talking about bucks ages but the true wonders of the woods are the mature does. They dont wait until dark to move, they hide in plain sight.
  17. Big deer move in the crappiest weather.... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  18. Old swamp donkey like that, you don't need to cure the meat to get jerky! Isn't it interesting that the best movement from big bucks often coincides with crappy weather? I hate sitting in the blowing snow, but the cameras don't lie.
  19. Update: Boat is in for a trailer inspection / water pump / accessory belt tomorrow at Vt Home. Going to have them hook up the lap top and grab hours ran at different rpm's for the 396 hours on the engine for this season. I have burned 466 gallons of fuel this year off the Troll Control rpm gauge. 1.18 gallons of gas per hour (gph) for the boat on plane + tubing with the kids and trolling. Trips amounted to 80 trips on the water for the year going back to break-in mid-December last year. In addition 50 hours and 8 trips on three other boats I was a guest. It's been one of the busiest years for me in 40 years on the water in terms of hours and trips combined.
