  1. Dont know what your fishing for . Not the greatest pictures but this is around a 30yr old Furuno 582l with original transducer. Turn it on and away you go.50 khz. I dont still fish but I would imagine you could see your jig. You can see the thermocline. Been looking at a new Furuno 1971F. Just to cure the winter itch. I will still be able to run my old transducer. Hint: actually my upper downrigger ball is to low,they look up to strike.(my thinkin)
  2. No #42 I just checked my sutton box. By the way Ive got 3 miller 66's I will never use if anyone is looking for them. Ive probably got 15 of the #5's. In the early 2000's I took the #1 laker in the NLT derby on a #5 off the boards. Most of them have caught fish.They get bent up easily and the hooks break its hard to get them swimming right after you bend them.The #88 used to be my diver spoon it died the last few years I dont know why. Not much info here just trying to get something going on the fingerlake board. Its 12 degrees.Boat winterized?
  3. Great idea. Thanks for the picture. #5 if its hammered is a real killer.I will look for a 42 when I get to the boat.
  4. I guy I used to fish with had two steering wheels.One with cable for the kicker.One Hydraulic for inboard. worked great.
  5. Anyone on here own one or have gotten their hands on one? I am thinking I should move out of 1980 electronics. That new touch screen looks great. My old Furuno stuff still works fine but I got the itch for something different.
  6. I had the same problem you are having trying to sell my sons Honda accord.Beautiful low mileage car and he was going to Japan for three years.

     What I found out with the high prices of today's vehicles banks are reluctant to loan people money for a used vehicle from a Individual.

      I think its a great price for your Honda. I am not in the market for a car right now . You were curious why no responses, this may be your problem. 

     Good luck with the sale.


  7. Fished the S end Sunday. Targeted lakers for the smoker.Kept a couple 20" Salmon.Could not catch a laker. Salmon were hitting peanuts...
  8. Certain times of the year lakers fight harder. Ive had them jump and rear and tear. But most of the time unless its a real big one you dont get much fight. If I wanted a fight I would skip the wire dipseys and go with light mono on noodle rods.I would run them off the down riggers .I had a couple noodle rods.Its hard to get your releases set loose enough to release with the rods. It limits you to spoons or stick-baits. Even a 4lb laker will give you a fight. Only downfall is its hard to revive a fish after a long fight.You end up keeping more fish . I ran noodle rods many moons ago.Before sea fleas. As far as reels go 300s would be great with 10lb test. Good luck
  9. Just great news ,Thanks for report.
  10. They do catch fish,I used to run a flatfish or twin minno in the middle of the rig it gave the whole rig vibration. If you can not find one I Have a rig someplace with 7 strand wire I will have to look. I am not interested in shipping it. Sk8man could you please draw what they look like when you get them back in the boat?
  11. Glad to see Seneca is turning on. Thanks for the silver picture and the report.
  12. I used to catch some big browns on the south end of Cayuga just off the drop off using sawbellies. If I was marking fish say 40 down ,I would cast a sawbellie 40ft from the boat clip a bobber on then cast the bobber out to get it away from the boat. Absolutely deadly for browns. Now ive got fancy trolling equipment so I dont fish that way anymore. I kinda miss it.
  13. Thanks for posting the pictures and the report. Nice to see some size.
  14. I hooked my kicker directly to the perko battery switch.[1,2 and both] Not sure if its the right way. I also run two batteries. Only difference is Yamaha motors. Been that way 19yrs never had a problem. 1000s of hours.
  15. I will be a back up buyer. They will have to be shipped.
  16. A friend of mine fished Tuesday out of Meyers . Fished the same water we have been fishing in the center of the lake. He only caught one dink salmon. Hooks and bait were gone.Blank screen. I thought maybe the lake flipped over. I guess it could be something else.
  17. I hope this picture comes out.This is what the green water looks like. Does not seem to effect fishing at all. Ive seen it in years past also.
  18. Meyers then up the middle of the lake.300ft plus
  19. Had fish on the screen like this almost all day. You can see my downrigger balls were in about the right place. Caught many had all six rods working.No lampreys,no scars. No fleas. A few weeds. BTW its a 20 plus yr old Furuno.
  20. I do not know how long they had it going but !st time Ive seen smoke coming out of the stack today. Might have to change Saturday fish plan.
  21. Have not fished in a month.Went out of Meyers around 5:30 this afternoon after the storm passed.Got out over deep water . 1st rod fired before I could get the 2nd rod down.Took quite awhile to get six rods down . Just a steady pick till we pulled them around 7:30. Quality lakers .just the perfect fish for my amateur crew members. All colors ,everywhere. I did not see any seafleas,but I run 50lb test ande line. I did see a few lamprey scars but no lamprey. I seen a lot of weeds more to the east side.Marked lots of huge bait pods with fish around them. Color or presentation did not seem to matter. The Cayuga megabite continues....
  22. Is that a 14.14 brown? Any pictures?
