  1. Here are a few,
  2. Also, lets not forget the possible effects of a successful pen rearing project. Not all the fish are imprinted with the salmon river water. (most still are), but the disbursement of the fish over the hole lake is more even. These fish are hanging closer to there stocking location until mature and the need to spawn drives them to the Salmon River for the ones imprinted to that Tributary. Others run for their stocking tributaries. The numbers are still in Mexico bay in late August and September. The hatchery is sill getting their fish for the eggs. I only recall one year were they were asking for egg collection from other tributaries.. I could be wrong on that because I do not live there but one year they were asking for help on the internet and I have not seen that sense then.
  3. Boat registration, side cutters in case you have to cut a hook or rigger cable if it should get stuck on something. Hand held radio for back up during an electrical failure or god forbid you are in the water. And of course do not leave home without snacks.
  4. Yes, just purchase a new one and attach and you will be ready to go.
  5. Lakeview Motel and cottages I will be there the end of the May during the holiday weekend.
  6. Here is your knot.
  7. Several years ago I paid $8,000 for my 1984 and then rigged it myself for fishing. I think $5000 as suggested would be a good offer as this is an "as is" purchased. That should leave you a little cushion for repairs if needed. They are a great boat and I would definitely give him an offer and if purchased bring it to a mechanic and have him look it over. You may get lucky and it may not need much work with it in a heated storage. Good luck with it.
  8. Wanted

    love those boats.
  9. Following closely
  10. I would recommend at least three steps. My ladder has two and we find it difficult to get back into the boat, Another step would help a lot. I will upgrade at some point.
  11. not unless it sits in NY waters for more than 30 days from what I understand.
  12. Glad you are finding some good help. Hope your first trip is a great and memorable one. Good luck.
  13. Niagara, Tuscarora, or Olcott will do you fine. just listen to the fishing reports and pick your launch from there. I have never used the Tuscarora launch. I understand that you want to make sure you stay in the channel there. Lots of rocks outside the channel. I will be in the area on Memorial day weekend from Thursday to Sunday.
  14. I change my line every other year, but I only fish the big lake 10 days a year. This year is my change year so that is on the list for next month. I have also ordered new coated cable for my downrigger with the speed and temp unit.. There is a list of things to be done with the boat but that will have to be taked care of in March when the boat is uncovered.
  15. Coated Downrigger cable Hello all, Hope everyone had a great holiday. I will be needing to change my coated downrigger cable before the next trolling season. 1. Who has the best price for this cable? 2. Does anyone have a spool larger than the two hundred feet spools that are usually around? Thank you all for your help.
