  1. Hi Fishnut, Thanks for the insight. I will check that out however in my case the bulb on the Tohatsu fuel line is really soft and when it is hot from being in the sun the bulb just flattens out when drawing gas. I might add it also has to go through an inline fuel filter too. It only happened a few times so at this point I'm not overly concerned about it. When the motor does begin to sputter, I just go back to the bulb and manually squeeze it and we are good. Again, thank you for the input. Regards, Bob Lyons
  2. Yes but thanks. I bought one at a local store and it costs $50! Sent from my XT1095 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Unlike the days of late, this was a great one Anthony. We have to get out and get Chris out as well. And to respond to an earlier post, yes I used flashers/flies. Everything was one of those days. Regards, Bob
  4. Ditto on Anthony's report. We had three doubles on!! 80' fow was great fishing 40-60 ft down. Slide divers were very productive. Best lure was an old favorite.....Silver Bullet with red head and decorated with a black ladder on it's bottom. Anyhoot I think a beer can trolled would have worked today. Also got some nice browns in the mix too. Tight lines and a great day today. Hopefully it keeps. Regards, Bob Lyons

  8. A cool upgrade for my boat

    A cool upgrade for my boat Hi Gang, Just want to pass on some info. I had an AM/ FM Cassette record. Talk about dating yourself. I made the big leap and finally switched out the radio and put in a Kenwood Marine stereo for like a $100. Such a cool upgrade. I get my calls now on the radio and when fishing is slow which we all know rarely happens.... it is cool to listen to spotify, podcasts etc.. via bluetooth from your phone. Bottom line... don't deny yourself! Regards, Bob Lyons
  9. Canvas Snaps

    Thanks for the kind offers but I'm good going forward. Regards, Bob Lyons
  10. Canvas Snaps

    Thanks to both of you for responding. Based on your answers, I actually had some boat wax and dabbed that on the snaps and that totally did the trick. Too bad I didn't do this earlier but many thanks! Bob Lyons
  11. Canvas Snaps

    Canvas Snaps Hi Gang, This is sort of a dumb question but my snaps on my canvas are so hard to separate that it's breaking the snaps. Is there a solution to this? Thanks, Bob
  12. Tom always enjoy your posts. Just got my boat in the water after a year and a half. So great to be out again. Thanks Bob Lyons Sent from my XT1095 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Too funny! There is one thing. The Kicker runs great and then on occasion sputters and I can see that the bulb is compressed. Not sure what that is? Overall I love it. Thank you again! Sent from my XT1095 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. 12 lb Cannonball Wanted Hi Gang, Made another donation to Lake Ontario today on the maiden voyage of the Sea Lion. Wanted to get a temp so I attached my Moor Sub Troll to my rigger with the breakaway cable holding the 12 lb ball. I can tell you the break away worked. Going 30 seconds on a troll when I saw the rigger wire go limp. GRRRRRR! Happy though it was the break away and not my sending unit. Anyhoot, now in need of a normal 12lb round cannonball. I live in Penfield but don't want to go too far out of the area. Thanks, Bob
  15. Fish Finder

    Fish Finder Hi Gang, Looking for a no nonsense Fish finder that has temp and speed at the surface/ GPS and the most important, great fish finder capabilities. I don't need color. I ask this since mine is OK but just ok. Suggestions? Again always the best info here, truly. Thanks, Bob
