  1. If you don't mind catching lake trout right now go out to the 125-150 water and run your stuff 80' -120' and you won't get skunked or disappointed.
  2. Caught this brown a few years ago and don't have a measured length but the newspaper will give you an idea of length. The fish weighed in at 11lb 5oz. Girth will play a big part in weight on these fish.
  3. Not sure if this is still available but you can't beat this unit for the price. It is posted in the "Classifieds" section.
  4. This is what they are talking about http://www.tamiron.com/Tamiron-Honeybees-s/103.htm
  5. The Empire Pass expires December 31. from the website: " When does the Empire Pass Card expire? Empire Pass Cards expire December 31st of the final year for which they were purchased. Lifetime Empire Passes do not expire." https://parks.ny.gov/admission/empire-passport/frequently-asked-questions.aspx
  6. Easy rule to follow: If its hard to get your spoon into the water because it is flying parallel to the water it is best to go home.
  7. Funny that this came up. Didn't even know about this until you made this topic. Saturday (4/6/2019) I was fishing and all of a sudden may track log on the gps started to disappear for the first couple hours in the morning. Never happened before. Not sure if the reset saturday had anything to do with it but that was a first for me. Don't want to hijack your thread but this is the link to the Garmin website for those that have a Garmin unit. https://support.garmin.com/ms-MY/?faq=zWQY6Z2kFiAuY9kDnDBgZ6 Thanks Wally' for the heads up.
  8. This should be helpful: https://www.dec.ny.gov/animals/7264.html
  9. Maybe this will help clarify the number of hooks (hook points) question: ********************************************* Freshwater Fishing Regulations Methods of Taking Fish Angling Angling means taking fish by hook and line. This includes bait and fly fishing, casting, trolling and the use of landing nets to complete the catch. Anglers must be in immediate attendance when their lines are in the water. The use of set lines where the angler is not in immediate attendance is prohibited. An angler may operate no more than three lines with or without a rod. each line is limited to not more than five lures or baits or a combination of both. in addition, each line shall not exceed 15 hook points in any combination of single, double or treble hooks. Snatching, lifting, hooking and use of tip-ups are not angling. ********************************************** ie: a number 11 Rapala has 9 hook points (three treble hooks) link to DEC regs: https://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/7917.html
  10. Your welcome anniep. I had them fix my AP2000 back when I used to have one and they did a quick turn around.
  11. This transducer will work on these units if anyone is interested.
  12. Here is another lead to have your unit repaired: http://www.kingmarineelectronics.com/
  13. A topic like this comes up every now and then. These are lake run browns and salmon to compare. Three browns on top and three LL's below. 3 browns & 3 salmon.bmp
  14. The Remington 158 gr SJHP is worth considering. I've used this bullet in both my .357mag and .44mag for hunting deer. This bullet is a vary good in deer size game. Quick expansion, bullet weight retention and holds together pretty good going through bone. The link will take you to a ballistic test to get some idea of performance. You'll get better muzzle velocity/energy in your 6" barrel than the 3" barrel in the video test
  15. One idea: Like volunteer firemen New York could have Deputy CO's. A few more eyes around at peck times would help. With deer season upon us there won't be much enforcement on the water.
  16. Here is a thought to add to your winter fishing
  17. This is my personal best salmon caught last Sept, 9lb 8oz.. Couple pics from this year Rainbow Don't have a size on this nice salmon. It was released without removing it from the water
  18. We are not using the palomar knot to join lines. Use it for hooks, swivels, snaps, etc. There are much better knots to join two lines.
  19. Ditto on the palomar knot for heavy line. I use it for 20lb flea flicker on up. Even works good for braided line. Easy, fast and won't slip
  20. A good poor man's down speed indicator is a dodger. It will have a nice rhythmatic pulse on the rod tip at the proper speed. Watch how the rod tip pulses when it is near the surface (say 10'-20' down) at trolling GPS speeds. Then look at it every now and then when at depth. Works on riggers, wire dip's, lead core's, etc. Search "thumper rods" for some more tips. Check your spoons at the same time to see how they are running and adjust your boat speed according to the dodger rhythm when at depth. You will not get a pulse with a flasher.
  21. Thanks for the feed back. Checking the fuel supply line is easy enough to do. I have a portable tank that I can hook up on my next trip and see if that clears it up. Never thought about a timing belt because the engine run fine at other RPMs. The Merc 9.9 is a black Tohatsu. My Dealer is Snake Creek Marine in Conklin Forks PA and they got wiped out in the flash floods back on August 14th so I was hesitant to call them about this problem. I'll do a little looking into replacing the timing belt on my own if they aren't back up and running yet. Any tips there would be appreciated. Thanks again
