    Asb tackle

    HU7; These guys got a couple dozen hot spoons for me during Spring derby fishing several years ago (two day turnaround). They really helped us out. I still use them when fishing the West end of the lake! Good luck! John

    3 or 4 Downriggers

    dstephe I have always run four riggers on my 20' Lund Newport, & my current boat 22' Hewscraft Searunner for thirty years with no trouble (both with 8' beams). I run out and down riggers with the rigger weight fin bent so it pulls the side riggers out, & away from the boat. I often run four riggers as deep as 160' with no issues. Most days, all riggers take fish. tight lines; John

    Re-powering Trophy ???

    Hey mullenj; What is the max size engine you can have on this boat (look @ the metal plate where this is displayed usually on the transom area). John
  5. Sore subject with me! I live on the South shore of Oneida Lake, & the black fish eating devils were in my bay in numbers of over 250 birds for about ten weeks this fall. They would swim across the entire bay eating anything they could catch & swallow &%$#@*&^!!! Called region 7 DEC & talked to a female that said that they had a boat on the lake shooting the flying rats three times a week! Saw them a few times, boy they could only hit sitting birds, as I watched them miss a lot of the flying rats! I asked if a landowner could get a nusence (sp) permit & was told no, & that they, the DEC have to apply to the Feds yearly to do it themselves, To which I said now that there were less regulations @ the Fed, how about helping us out getting these permits, Didn't get a warm feeling from this person that they would do anything.

    Do this or you may be SORRY!

    gary; There was a day that I would have just cut the strap , & gotten on with it, tying the hook on will get the boat back on the trailer.
  10. The observer thing is a no go for me, I can't pay someone to watch me fish. If an observer is needed there must be too much rule violation.
  11. king; Very nice steelhead! John
  12. Sk8; Did you ask him why they don't troll for the tuna, Shure would get rid of the anchor line problems & cover much more ground? John
