  1. Cayuga

    Here is a little reference on current lake level: http://www.canals.ny.gov/waterlevels/netdata/cayuga-levels.pdf
  2. I have a complete AP2000 that stopped working because of an electrical issue. I would rather sell the whole thing together rather than part it out. Everything is there including all the adaptor plates. Make me a reasonable offer for the whole thing.
  3. as Sk8man said, many times "bow" is the short form used for rainbow in the fishing posts Here is the link to what NYS DEC has on the bowfin: http://www.dec.ny.gov/animals/77506.html
  4. I don't own one of those systems but have been on boats that did and they worked like in the video.
  5. Great accomplishment. Congratulations. Now I know who to talk to about improving my Brown Trout program....
  6. I've seen that down jigger many moons ago (2003) at the Harrisburg Sportsman's Show. They had a working model in their display. What a sight to see. Blow back was never mentioned...
  7. Just keep watching the fishing posts and you'll get a heads up on where the fishing action is leading up to your trip. There are several wineries with dockage mid lake. Great way to do the wine tour is by boat and some have bistros so you'll be able to grab a bite to eat. The ladies will love it. Most if not all are pet friendly so if your bringing your best friend with you you'll be able to take them along to O'Malley's and the wineries. If you want to send me a bottle of Cayuga Lakes best red I'll make this book available for your trip......
  8. That lake does have some nice brown's in it. Don't know anyone that jigs them. They usually drag leadcore around. I don't have any details as to spoon size. Maybe jigging next to the drop off shelf can get you some. Good luck
  9. Beautiful fish, congratulations. That size rainbow doesn't come along vary often. It must have given you a pretty good show.
  10. Welcome to the fine sport of trolling for trout & salmon. You've been bit and there is no end to the bucket li$t.
  11. Try cayenne pepper.
  12. Ford vs Chevy . I have a ford....... (Happy Troller - Large ) for sale if anyone is interested. It is reinforced and much stronger than the stock model. Would prefer not to ship. Can be picked up in the Binghamton area.
  13. Here are a couple pics of how a plate is attached to the BayStar and the quick disconnect ball is mounted to the plate. You can probably fabricate something to accomplish the same thing on your engine. Every setup is going to be different so figuring out the geometry to the kicker may be a challenge in some cases. The main objective (in the perfect world) is to be able to have full travel of both the main and kicker engines without one hitting the stops before the other. If anything, let the kicker (slave) under travel so the main is never impeded by the kicker stops. My boat is an Arima and the transom is not straight across as in a lot of boats. Also I have a power mount for the kicker to contend with so the kicker sets back a ways when down in the trolling position.
  14. I used a set of smart tabs for awhile and they did well getting up on plane faster but didn't give me the ability to adjust the listing, same as you. I installed a set of Lenco tabs and that took care of the problem of leveling out the ride under varying conditions. Also adjusting bow attitude under varying seas is a plus. Had them on 6 years now and the only problem I had was with the trim tab control switch and Lenco sent me a new one at no cost to me. Components are easily replaceable if the need arises. I'd buy them again..
  15. This has it listed...> http://www.airmartechnology.com/marine-product-search.asp?q=P66
