  1. Sherman Brown.. The captains were already mounted on the boat I bought in 2001.. The boat is a 2000. So they were like new when I started running them. Also I am a lot better taking care of stuff now then I was 20yrs ago.
  2. 91 does not seem that old. I have never worked on a 91 Johnson but I would take my time and do it.. I would imagine Steel bolts and aluminum housings. You do not want to break any bolts.
  3. These riggers came used on the first fishing boat I bought . Back in the 80's. I ran them for years then a couple boats later I bought a boat with new captains packs..No way near the quality or speed of my old ES 1000,s..Wore the captains packs out in a few years . Now I am back to my old ES 1000s. That I have been running them again probably the last 10 yrs or so. I was hoping someone out there would have a brass drive gear like in the picture below. Part number on gear is G1043.. I have contacted Big Jon waiting for call back. I currently have 6 of these old style riggers . I fish a lot ,never smoked one of these motors. Only have changed these gears out and switches over the years . As soon as I get to it I have a lot of captain pack parts to sell or trade for ?

He says most are 8 inches some a little longer some a little shorter.He got them mid to late August of this year. He is going out of town for a couple days I just text him I will try and have him take some Pixs. The response, PMs etc. Is really surprising . There is a couple guys who PM ed me within the first hour I put them up. I will let you know if they are sold or not.

  10. Thanks for report. Did you try running meat? We been thinking about one more trip.
  11. I seen the brown hanging .Seeing the belly facing towards me first I thought it was a laker. Then when I looked at the side it was a brown.. I should have taken a picture. Long and skinny... Here is a pix of the 4th place rainbow if it wasn't a bleeder it would have gone back..
  12. Hit the S end of Cayuga Friday afternoon for a couple hours. Lots of debris ,seaweed,trash, logs. and trees floating. Water is high and and yellowish green looking. I was surprised at the pleasure boaters going wide open.. Marked quite a bit of bait and fish at various depths. This one came 50 down on a Pirate watermelon spoon. He is still out there swimming around. Pulled the down rigger balls up from 100 down and they were warm....
  13. Wow.. something you never see for sale...Butch and Dave spoons. Originated out of Hughes marina. Like a NK but more action. I already have to much stuff already. Or I would own them..
  14. We were out there Sunday out of Hughes. Two bites landed one mature in 140FOW on meat. There was some monster piles of bait out in 200. Find a good screen and try to go back thru and the fish and bait were gone.Nice afternoon on the water and the sunset was very cool... The fish was turning black..
  15. I hope we get our plastic bags back.
  16. The wires on my remote cable control broke loose and there was enough insulation color left to identify the correct terminals to solder the wires back on. The problem I am having is it locks in correctly in my driveway but on the water it will not lock in..{boat moving} I have the manual it says you should not have to reset the calibration after the initial calibration. Anyone have suggestions on what the problem may be? Do I try and re calibrate it?
  17. Looking for a remote control for a simrad AP14. It has 3 connector pins. used to turn autopilot on off and adjust gain. If you think you have one I will try to figure out how to post picture..... new phone
  18. A 7/ 23 report out of Hughes.. Fished 7am to 7 pm. Quite a few marks 140 to 200 range. Quite a bit of bait in the area towards the end of the day. Had 3 hits on meat. Had a salmon on cowbells for awhile. Final score Fish 4 fisherman 0. Long day. If anyone caught anything I did not hear it on the radio.
