  1. This may help you in deciding. http://www.canals.ny.gov/waterlevels/netdata/cayuga-levels.pdf
  2. My vote is to go with Justin's recommendation for setting up a pontoon boat. If that is to pricey for you then go with bags till you can afford to do it right. I have a used large Happy Troller plate if you want to go in that direction but two 28" - 30" bags should work for you and you don't have to drill any holes in you boat. PS: two bags will give better boat control in the wind than just your main engine will do but not as good as Justin's setup.
  3. Opening day hunting is to stressful for me so I'm going to do some relaxing fishing today.
  4. The club I belong to has been leasing land from Cotton-Hanlon since the mid 1970's. Not sure where you are looking to lease but here is a consideration. https://www.cottonhanlon.com/
  5. The primer bulb for each engine fuel line has a check valve in it already.
  6. He is a brown. Down about 30' over 100' bottom. I would guess 1/2 to 3/4 miles to the nearest creek. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. If this guy was up the creek where he should of been he wouldn't have ended up in my boat yesterday. He was ripe when he hit the deck. He doesn't have big shoulders but his tail did him proud in the fight. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. FYI,.... those two 10lb fish weights will fit in a USPS Medium size flat rate box. $15.05
  9. There was the same condition in Cayuga Lake in 2013. Once DEC treated the streams it cleared up the lake pretty good. Lamprey's are few and far between now. In order to keep the lake clear a successful treatment would have to be done every four years to keep the larvae in check other wise they will gradually takeover the lake again as what you have now. Cayuga Sept 2013
  10. I bet he'll come in handy for the fish that gets off at the back of the boat. Just kidding. Beautiful dog.
  11. I had the same results. I am leery to buy from him at this point.
  12. Way back in the old days ( Sept 29, `02) I was trolling for the normal trout species in Cayuga Lake around the Aurora area. I picked these up trolling a dodger /fly down 65' over 100' bottom. These were pretty active that day.
  13. Where are you located. Zip Code will suffice. My nephew is a big musky guy and may be interested depending on how far he has to travel. Thanks
  14. I put this post in the "This Old Boat" section and thought I'd get a little more exposure here. I'm thinking of adding down speed, temp & depth to my boat and am looking at the Smart Troll. I like the idea of being able to get readings from multiple lines rather than the single reading like on the downrigger cable versions. Can any of you that have one give me some feed back on the unit and how it works for you? Thank you.

  16. I thought that some of you would be interested in this: https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/NYSDEC/bulletins/297dc01
  17. Glad you made it back home Jerry. NY Route 90 must of been a treat for you pulling a boat with the "Route 90 Yard Sale" going on .
  18. Found this in Wikipedia, "Mercury Outboards, 30 Hp and less, are made by Tohatsu in Japan. Mercury Marine builds 40, 50 and 60 horsepower outboard motors in Suzhou, China. Mercury also manufactures engines over 75 horsepower at its facility in Fond du Lac in Wisconsin."
  19. Sounds like a fuel supply problem. Everything seems to be working until you throttle up high and it dies out only to start right back up again. Seems to run good until the fuel in the float bowl runs out. Check the fuel line from the tank top the engine. It may have a restriction. If it is a old line replace it. Cheap remove & replace item. Good luck with the repair Looks like we both posted at the same time Hank. I'll yield these topics to the pros (you)
  20. I have a Mercury 9.9 2006 tiller electric start and it has a hose from the primer bulb to the lower front of the carb. In one of the YouTube videos (....... )..............the mechanic mentions that there are some Yamaha's out there ( @ 4:55 into the vid) that don't have a primer tube. Maybe someone replaced the Mercury carb with Yamaha carb? Just a thought. The primer bulb is definetly a asset to have in cold weather.
  21. For me I've found that the Cortland FleaFlicker works the best. Tried 30lb mono, forget it. Blood Run flea line, about the same as 30lb mono. Guys piss and moan about the Cortland line but it works the best (IMO). Vary little attachments yesterday on the line while my rigger cables did pick some up. Cortland stopped making it but if you can get your hands on some try it. Come flea season I just overlay about 130' of FleaFlicker on my normal mono line and add 10'-12' of leader. Come Sept/Oct when the fleas disappear I just strip the fleaflicker off. No need to respool.
  22. Dave puts a additive in the minnow tanks that make the minnows taste like "chicken".
  23. I think you'll find that you'll be able to anticipate the temp changes at times on the finger lakes when there is a sustained north or south wind. Say if the wind is out of the north for a day or two the warmer surface water will be pushed south and colder water from below will replace the surface void on the north end. Water will be most dense at about 38 degrees. Anything colder or warmer will be less dense and rise absent of any other forces in the water columns. Watch the weather trends a couple days in advance of were you are going to fish if fishing surface water temp is your thing. Using a down Speed & Temp probe will be more helpful for subsurface temp and a faster way to target specific temperatures. Now after that just grab your tackle and go fishing.
  24. Can you post some pictures of what you have. You shouldn't have to unscrew them to adjust the angle of the rod holder. BigJon has a couple styles of rod holders and pictures would be helpful in determining which ones you have.
  25. I second that knot. Won't slip and slides right through the eyes. A dab of super glue at the end of the leadcore sheath will keep it from fraying up. Nice brown!
