  1.  Just read up on your post about lead-core.Fishing news is scarce  this time of year. Things have been crazy for me. Did not fish much. I got four ambulance rides to the hospital with heart problems.  had a triple bypass that didn't go well.  Luckily [if you want to call it that]  Im a disabled vet otherwise I would be buried in Hospital bills.   Hopefully I will be squared away for next year...   My only project has been a electric winch on the boat trailer.   My fishing partner is in his 80s now.He cant help much with loading process.  You have been fishing alone for awhile I will probably be doing the same.  Last spring copper and orange were the colors for atlantics on the s end of Cayuga.  About all the fish info Ive got.  If im healthy next year I plan on joining the Thursday night lake league on Cayuga.

      Gee Stan that sound terrible. I’m sorry to hear about your health issues. That’s a bummer. I also am a disabled Vet but am plenty mobile right now. Agent Orange is starting to creep up on me. Dealing with hypothyroidism but that’s being contorted with meds. Hope that it stays that way. I’m waiting for the Syracuse Vet Hospital to arrange a appointment with a Hematologist here in Binghamton (Broome Oncology). My white blood count has been below normal a couple years and it just took a nose dive so the blood lab took my samples Thursday. The doctor hear said “ be sure you don’t cut yourself until we find out what is going on”. Ha ha, he doesn’t know what happens on the boat.

      Anyway. My last trip was Saturday. It was a great day fishing took nine rainbows, seven legal, two short. A few lake trout also. Deepest set was 60'. Most everything was caught between 35'-60'. Have to put the boat away now. I’ll probably fall into a minor state of depression for the next five months.    Only got one legal salmon this year. I’m losing my touch but the rainbows were willing to play. The pic is of the two I kept Saturday and released the rest.

      Hope you mend up real good this winter so you can get back to your normal fishing schedule next season.

  17. I found them at Boston gear. Thanks for the tip. I am going to give my add a week in case someone has some parts. If no response I will order from them .
  18. Looking for the bronze drive gear for the downrigger pictured below. These are from the 80's. Still work fine but the drive gears are just about worn out. Still powerful but really noisy. Obsolete is what Big Jon told me. I bought these used in the early 90's third boat Ive had them on...I thought maybe someone on the board here might have some parts..
  19. Wow quite a machine. Should handle the Fingerlake chop just fine.. I like a skip tower especially on a hot windless day.
