  1. You may not get much response this weekend with the Barny derby going on on Cayuga. As said above the fish are scattered in the water column. Most Lakers are coming from 70'-110' over deeper water. Sent from my motorola edge plus 5G UW (2022) using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. You can see by the picture of the wheel that you have disc brakes. A simple way to check if the system is working is to hook the trailer up to your vehicle and leave the electric plug off. Try to back up the trailer with you vehicle. You shouldn't be able to bake up if the brakes are working. If the wheels lock up and you can't move in reverse the brakes are working. If the trailer rolls in reverse the system isn't working properly. By the questions you are asking here you should probably have someone that knows what they are doing check it out.
  3. The new state wide fishing regulations are starting next Friday, April 1, 2022. I really thought that there would be some discussion in the Finger Lakes section about the changes. Link below will take you to there: https://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/124258.html
  4. You can use this fluid in your system at a fraction of the cost of the Seastar fluid especially if you are going to flush the system. https://www.amazon.com/Octopus-Hydraulic-Steering-Autopilot-Drives/dp/B07HBHVNPS I bought a gallon of this last March for $35.29 delivered on Amazon and used it to flush my system with Baystar steering and Raymarine Autopilot.
  5. Try these guys. http://www.prbullet.com/ They are in Canada but ship direct to the US. It's a family owned business and I've been buying their bullets for years. Call them for more indepth info. Toll free number and lots of info listed in the website. PS: They may have already tested your rifle and have a good starting load to use.
  6. I've only hunted deer with handguns. These are what I used to take deer: S&W 629 Classic 6", 44 mag Taurus 6", .357mag TC Encore 14", .243 and my all time favorite that is my primary gun even during regular gun season Kahnke model M82 12", 50 cal muzzelloader Got his deer some years ago with it. My personal best.
  7. This vid came out on Friday in the NYS DEC - The Fishing Line - October 22nd Edition, filmed October 8th, 2021. I thought that you would like to see this. Pretty interesting. It's about 30 minutes long and delivers a lot of information about sturgeon and the sturgeon stocking program in Cayuga Lake and New York State. Zebra mussels and gobies beware! https://www.facebook.com/NYSDEC/videos/598593474606608/

  9. I added a couple of these to my boat last year and they worked out pretty good. I did blow a fuse and the corresponding light illuminated so finding the blown fuse was easy. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07HDYQMB5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  10. Generally the the rough running problem with those 9.9's is the carburetor. They will probably need to be taken apart and cleaned. I have a 2006, had it back to the dealer after a couple years. He said the jets are tiny and just needs to be cleaned. YouTube has a couple videos on how to do it. Pretty easy and you won't need a parts kit either if you are careful with seals. I did it myself three times since. After the first time you do it it will take you about a hour to take off, clean, reassemble and install.
  11. I have the EV-150 ( just a bigger pump than the ev-100) on the main and use a tie bar for the kicker. If the tie bar doesn't work for you use the ez steer. The tie bar is much easier to use if it will adapt to your setup.

    From the looks of his pictures he doesn't have to wait till fall to have the lake to himself.
  13. I had a dream last night that once trolling at night catches on in the fingers this is what it will look like.....
  14. I'll bet a few guys are following this thread. I would be interested in hearing how you make out trolling the fingers for trout/salmon in the dark. I often wondered if they actively feed at night. This could open more fishing opportunities for some.
