  1. Just a tip to help you get the coated Cummings net onto the hoop. Spray the hoop with food grade silicone first. The net will go on much easier.
  2. Fished out of Oswego today. Went 5 for 9...all over 7 pounds. Smithwicks in firetiger and perch. Mooselook wobblers and a few other assorted sticks. All off planer boards. Green water east of the river, surface temp 45 degrees. Only 5 trailers in the parking lot at Wright's Landing. Fantastic start to the 2017 season for us!
  3. I'd second the vote for Oneida Lake to fish for walleye. Tony Buffa runs a charter based from the south shore if you want to hire a guide for the second day.
  4. How about we get back to your point Dr W. So far I'm not seeing any volunteers for the Coast Guard Auxiliary. I'm interested in hearing more. Could you PM me...maybe I can help. I fish out of Mexico Point 2 or so days a week. I can't believe your request got so far off topic and not one volunteer!
  5. You can find the 4' booms on eBay from time to time, however they don't sell cheap.
  6. I spent almost 4 days stripping old wallpaper and hanging new stuff to replace paper I hung about 12 years ago. Boy was that fun (NOT). I just keep thinking how fast May is coming.
  7. New in box SPX - 5 Raymarine pilot just listed on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/201792605193?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT If you have the dough!
  8. I have numerous J Plugs...$1 each. Willing to ship at cost.
  9. What make/model machine did you have these on?
  10. I'm almost 100% sure you have to register it in your state of residence using your home address. Just food for thought...what address would you use to register the boat here in NY? Mike's Marina address? Beth would love that...LOL.
  11. Fished my final trip of the season on the Horsin' Around yesterday. Started in 20 fow just south of the Salmon River. J Plugs, spoons, jointed Rapalas and FF were deployed. Took a good rip on a glo/black striped J plug off a slide diver back 100' and down 20. Didn't land that one. Next hit came on a small dipsey, double orange crush Stingray back 30'. Didn't get that one either. Last hit was off the 11' Downrigger back 70' on a mag Stinger Superman. Boated that one! Nice, but very dark colored fish around 28 lbs. All the action we had was in front of the Salmon River in 20 fow. GPS speed was 2.1 - 2.6 mph. I'm moving on to the next seasons...geese, ducks, walleye and DEER! Too many choices. Good Luck and Good Day!
  12. Please explain to me why the circle diameter technical data matters? Mag dipsey data down/out data matters. Look on Great Lakes Fisherman's website.
  13. I flocked about 4 doz geese heads this past winter. Purchased a kit from an eBay seller. They came out well. Stored them in decoy bags and put the heads in socks. PM me if you need more info.
  14. I opted for a Furuno 10 years ago. Still a solid unit with much better customer service after the sale than Lowrance or Raymarine. Just my 2 cents.
  15. I vote for the Torpedo 7 strand as well. I don't use any backer...a 1000' spool fills my Diawa SG47LC reels right to the rim.
