  1. Good idea. May end up doing just that. Red and Green would be easy for port & starboard. The red will be black at the depths we run the dipsey's.
  2. Yes I have one. Installed it new in 2007. Haven't had any problems with it. Would recommend it to anyone that hasn't had a hernia yet. A hell of a cheaper than surgery and the only thing that hurts is your wallet but well worth it. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  3. Great pics. The only thing better than looking at someone else's fishing pictures is looking at mine,......right now I'll have to settle for yours. Thanks for sharing.
  4. http://www.canals.ny.gov/waterlevels/netdata/cayuga-levels.pdf Can't find any boating advisories so far.
  5. Thanks for the heads up SuttonT. Didn't have the new change in my radar. Guess I should try reading the rule book once in awhile[emoji5]. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  6. Fished Sat. long point to tin can. Wasted the first 3hours in the upper water table then went to the depths. Limited out on lakers in a hour & half. Down 110' over 120'- 140'. Best laker for the day was 31". They took spoons, d/f. Surface temp 38-39 deg. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  7. I've been adding those brass rattle tubes that bass fishermen use to the base ( fly end) of my dodgers for years. Does it help catch more fish? I don't know but it makes me feel better. Sorta like putting wiggly eyes on my flies....
  8. I haven't launched there this spring but the lake levels are on the rise and nearing summer level. Check out the graph as of 3/27. http://www.canals.ny.gov/waterlevels/netdata/cayuga-levels.pdf
  9. I'll be interested in how you make out with the install and operation of your new Simrad. I have the Ray Sportpilot. It does have it's limits holding course depending on the winds as you know. Ray replaced my Sportpilot 5 years ago without charge. It started to get sloppy because of the wear in the gears. I sent the helm unit back for repairs and a new one showed up 5 days later. It's still holding on but the wear issue is starting to show up on this one also. I know your frustration when the AP bombs out . Had a AP for 26 years and I'd be lost without one. Hope you have a good fishing season, especially with your new best friend (Simrad)
  10. I put one of theses on my Arima 7+ years ago. http://www.jrmarineproducts.com/ Lifting a Mercury 9.9hp 4 stroke short shaft. Skeg is out of the water when boat is on plane. Never had a problem with it. The owner is vary responsive if you have questions regarding his unit, it's operation and/or installation. My opinion, this is well worth the money.
  11. Goggle Map earth view shows Kitto 's Marina.
  12. Here is a little reference on current lake level: http://www.canals.ny.gov/waterlevels/netdata/cayuga-levels.pdf
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. I don't own one of those systems but have been on boats that did and they worked like in the video.
  16. Great accomplishment. Congratulations. Now I know who to talk to about improving my Brown Trout program....
  17. 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...
  18. 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......
  19. 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
  20. Beautiful fish, congratulations. That size rainbow doesn't come along vary often. It must have given you a pretty good show.
  21. Welcome to the fine sport of trolling for trout & salmon. You've been bit and there is no end to the bucket li$t.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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..
