  1. The boat has been sold. Thanks to everyone the was interested.
  2. Yes will call you back tomorrow. Believe it or not, Im a rock star and playin a huge biker festival. 😆
  3. I’ll take some pics tomorrow. Nothing special. Storage, cushions, table, porta potty. Sure will pot up tomorrow
  4. It is on Cayuge lake and it doesn't have an auto pilot. I use the remote joystick to steer when trolling. Fits in your pocket. RR
  5. Hi Guys n Gals, This will be available after Labor Day. I've retired from my career and my fishing charter business. I'm selling my rig with everything that goes with it for Trout and Salmon trolling. 25 foot, 8.5 beam, 250 HP 5.7 L V8, 105-gallon gas tank with a hard top and canvas. I have no hour meter, so I do not know how many hours. But I can tell you that 90% of the hours are on the kicker. Custom Trailer with independent suspension, 4 brand new radials, surge brakes and 2 spare tires. 15 Horse 4 stroke Mercury Kicker with Panther electric trim and remote steering. All tied into the main gas tank. Storage and bait tanks 2 large fish boxes in floor 8 rigger rods 6 Planer rods 3 diver rods 2 copper rods, 1, 400 ft and 1, 500 ft 6 Cores of various lengths All the reels are Shimano, Diawa, Penn and Okuma 100's of spoons Meat rigs, Dodgers and flashers and some flies A few dipsys 3 Cannon mag 5 HS riggers (2 just Serviced) with boom arms 2 sets of Cisco rod holders Planer Reels with 2 Otter boats with double keels Fish Hawk X4 Raymarine Sonar and GPS Garmin GPS Icon radio Stereo Life Jackets etc. I have taken good care of this boat and have all the service records. Has a little dock rash. (Can be repaired easily) The Rub rail stinks (I've replaced it 2 times with the same design.) Silly me. It is functional though. I will not separate the gear from the boat. Its a package deal. Everything works as it should. Asking price is 20K Thanks for looking and tight lines to you all. RR
  6. Sheldrake North to just past the Thirsty Owl Vineyard. Green dot spin Drs with Green and white flies 290 on the divers and 105 down on the rigger. 100 to 200 FOW, 2.5 on the down speed. 10 color core takes the occasional salmon or bow. The occasional bounce the balls and divers in the mud produces strikes.
  7. Lake gets green every summer. I live there year round.
  8. Yes it was very good yesterday. Its been good last few years. But I'm not getting as many quality silvers this year. RR
  9. I have a 3 laker limit on my boat. I did not tell my customers that it changed. 5 in combo. No one has called me out yet. RR
  10. We call that lake trout fingers. Yes it hurts. RR
  11. I have 2. 100 bucks each. Just kidding. Postage and you can have them. RR
  12. The jumbo perch will move into the shallower water to spawn starting about now. Only lasts for about 2 weeks and I mid lake off my dock. Then the little ones move in for the summer and the big ones move back out. They don't all go north. Can catch them all summer 20 to 30 fow.
  13. Definitely a post spawn fish.
  14. The bait is not in yet. Shallow fishing will be slower until they show up. Its any day now though according to my logs. They are a week late so far. My advise is to pound the shallows for 1 hour. If its not happening, its not going to. Move out and fish deeper and point structure.
  15. Maybe on LO. Cayuga the silvers are right with them, just a touch above.
  16. I have not found that to be the case. Max depth for the goby is less than 60 ft. On Cayuga I am fishing 225 to 300 fow or more. We’ve had gobies for over 10 years now. We are talking about Cayuga and Seneca here not LO. The guys jigging do well in 60 to 80 with goby patterns. The fish Im fileting do not have any gobys. However the browns are full of them and I don’t get many except in the spring. Its nearly impossible to troll for them now unless you have a good mate or hummingbird/ digitroll system that can adjust your riggers in seconds. They are in 45 to 60 fow and on Cayuga thats an impossible depth to fish trolling. Most guys targeting browns are fishing bait, anchored or drifting. The bottom on Cayuga changes to fast. You can be working 60 fow and hit 15 fow in a second or 100 fow.
  17. You will not catch shallow silvers until the surface temp reaches 44 degrees.
  18. When you are running a charter business on Cayuga, you target suspended lakers. The silvers are just above them. So the routine is to run 2 riggers on the break and add cores to it. Run the divers and the center rigger on the suspended lakers. Rods fire all day. I'm not fishing suspended lakers on LO either. LOL
  19. I specifically target suspended lakers. I do not fish bottom marks.
