  1. I have heard outboards are easier to work on, but I dont know personally.
  2. I think Bill is staying in my Marina. We are at the Boat House.
  3. Matt, I too looked into them before I got my Scotties. If i remember correctly they dont have shut offs when the ball reaches the surface. That might be a problem coming from cannons where your used to the short stops.
  4. Mick....thats a whole new thread. Im sure these guys will toss thier opinion your way.
  5. Wait till you get a hold of the bartender. Shes a knock out for sure!
  6. That is truly the most comfortable rig on the Great Lakes IMHO! If only I could afford one!~
  7. Nope, I fished candelwood last year too. It is a phenominal lake for SM and there are some nice LM in there too. There will probably be about 100 boats. It is a team tourney, so me and a friend will be participating. I think first place is $4000. Last year there were a couple of Pro's there fishing it.
  8. Wow, I didnt know CT was that big. Thanks for the input on the site.
  9. Hey maybe you guys can kiss and meet when Dan Charters the Candy boat up in Wilson.
  10. I talked to Yvan today and it is the last weekend of April. Im gonna be fishing a big bass tourney in Conneticut that weekend. It was also supposed to be the weekend I brought the boat down to Wilson. But I guess we are bringing it down the Thursday b4 the derby.
  11. Hey Guy.....You guys thinkin bout doing the St. Cathy Tourney?
  12. A bunch of good guys stay here. You couldnt ask for a better facility!
  13. I know there is a limit in effect. As far as the ban, I dont know much about it. Here is a blog from the DEC page. read up: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/dfwm ... hregs.html
  14. Set up at first light and had a few quick flags. OK, let me back up. This freakin minnow ban is killing me! I had to use smelt, which works but I prefer suckers or shiners. So I had a few quick flags. Lost a hammer handle at the hole. Left to get some grub for me and the ol' lady and when I got back I found out she missed another one. Ended the day by picking up and when I walked over to one of my tip ups the flag was frozen to the ice. Well, I landed my only one which went about 5 pounds. My GF jigged up a few perch, but the only keeper perch came on a bass miinow on the tip-up. Here is what the ice looked like, but same fish. It was real slow today as far as Im concerned. The water is murky and I think that is why the smelt worked better than my bass minnows. Of could it be that the bass minnows werent big enough?
  15. I have had one on my bass boats for years. There are two types. The first one is one that you would plug in when you got home. You can get these in all shapes and sizes. Most are 6-10amps/bank (a bank is the amount of batteries you can charge with one charger), but I have had them up to 15 amps/bank. We all know slow charges are better, but when you need those batteries fresh the next morning after fishing all day the 15amps really shine. The next one they make is one that charges your other batteries on the run/water. Once your motor charges your cranking batterie power is switched to the other batteries. This works fine on the run, but under a troll it wouldnt benefit you i dont think. What you might want to try is hooking your batteries up in series. I know a bunch of guys who run 36v trolling motors and only use 3 batteries in the whole boat.
