  1. X4 620 with Airmar P66 transducer
  2. There are many choices for light weight auto inflating life jackets. My 70 year old fishing buddy and I wear them all the time.
  3. Power from the SLR needed down state.... higher water flow means more power from turbines.. Indian Point, the nuclear power plant closest to New York City, could be shut as soon as April 2021 under an agreement New York state officials reached this week with Entergy, the utility company that owns the plant, according to a person with direct knowledge of the deal. Under the agreement, one of the two nuclear reactors at Indian Point will permanently cease operations by April 2020, while the other must be closed a year later. The shutdown has long been a priority for Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, who — though supportive of upstate nuclear plants — has repeatedly called for shutting Indian Point. He has said it poses too great a risk to New York City, less than 30 miles to the south.
  4. Sled Guy, 17ft. Starcraft here... my setup is the same as Norm, riggers are 3ft. forward of the transom. The photo shows my starboard rear corner, boat moving to the left. Wire diver, then 2 rods stacked on the rigger.
  5. In my experience with boats, age means nothing compared to condition. Boats in Colder climates sometimes get limited use. Case in point, my rig pictured below. 1996 17ft. super fisherman with a 90 hp. 2-stroke. It's either on the water, or stored inside. This is a 23 year old boat, original paint and well taken care of. NADA is a rough guide only. Photo taken last year

    17' too small??

    I started fishing Ontario in 1989 in this 16ft. Sea nymph, with a 40 hp Mariner. In 1996, I moved up to this 17ft. Starcraft with a 90hp. Merc. This year was season #23 for this rig, I can launch and recover alone with ease, it fits in the garage, has all the bells and whistles now including autopilot. I'll keep her running until my fishing days are over..
  7. Funny looking rock bass you got there mister.....

  9. A co-worker purchased weights from him last week. He's probably fishing..
  10. The heavy mono is stiff and adds action to the fly. Braid, not so much..
  11. I also suggest the drive West to Oak Orchard, Point Breeze. The Orleans County Marine Park is accessible as you exit the parkway. There is a nice fishing dock at the south end of the park. deep water, fish live bait or flip plastics or cranks. This one hit a rattle trap a few years back
  12. Port of Rochester, both docks were just out of the water as of Sunday morning, ramps full of debris and closed. I would think they would get them open by the weekend.

    The only place I know of now is the the manufacturers site in Finland. I ordered my last batch from a West coast site that no longer stocks them..... too bad, I always have at least one in the water and always good for a fish or two.
  14. Looks good Jeff. You will find it easier to net fish on the corners with the downriggers in that location. I often swivel the downrigger boom forward with the weight still in the water to gain a bit more netting room.
