  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

  5. 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
  6. Your welcome anniep. I had them fix my AP2000 back when I used to have one and they did a quick turn around.
  7. This transducer will work on these units if anyone is interested.
  8. Here is another lead to have your unit repaired: http://www.kingmarineelectronics.com/
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. Here is a thought to add to your winter fishing
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. HELP! Kicker doesn’t hold trolling speed 2006 Mercury 9.9 Four stroke, tiller short shaft (I bought new) 1,100 hours on engine equipped with Troll Master Pro (2006 model) Problem: engine will not hold set trolling speed. If I set it at say 2.0 mph GPS it will eventually slow down to 1.5-1.7 +. I hit the MFT (momentary full throttle) button for a split second and the engine returns to initial setting, 2.0 mph for a few minutes and then slowly drops off to the slower speed. Engine runs smooth at all speeds including trolling. No missing or hesitating. At different times to tried to remedy this by making these changes. 1) replaced the servo for the Troll Master throttle control 2) upgraded the linkage from the servo to the throttle 3) changed spark plugs and 4) most recently rebuilt the carburetor last week Also the same problem exists if I set the speed with the tiller and lock it there with the friction knob. Fuel comes from the same tank as the main engine going thru a fuel/water separator filter and splits from there going to each engine. Fuel is treated throughout the season with StaBil Marine stabilizer year around. I even siphon a couple quarts of gas out of the bottom of the fuel tank every spring to be sure there isn’t any water or jell in it from winter storage. There doesn’t seem to be a change in how the engine trolls with any of these attempts to fix it. I’m hoping someone out there is familiar with this problem and knows the remedy for it. Thanks
  19. Bought this new and was never installed. Retails for $150.00+ $100.00 or reasonable offer Installation instructions: http://www.airmartechnology.com/uploads/InstallGuide/17-217-01.pdf
  20. Looks like a little Bud down the hatch and a Bush on the surface to get things started....
  21. I think he is talking about Quick Slide Mounts. https://www.bigjon.com/product/quik-slide-mounting-base
