  4. Has 2 slide outs, full frig, nice condition. Located at Catfish Creek Marina, New Haven N.Y. Getting out of fishing. It is located at the marina, A private fishing camp. Spot could be available for rv. Sorry having a problem downloading pictures. I am listing this for a friend. I can send pictures to your e mail if interested.
  5. Have a Honda 9.9 hp kicker, when I bought the Honda 2001 it had a 6" extension so the prop was lower. Wondering what height should the cavitation plate be in relation to bottom of boat. I would like to take extension off. All I would have to do is buy a shorter shaft. I have a manual motor lift which raises it about 6", not enough because prop is in water when underway. Any ideas would help. Bill
  6. Nice report, need more like this.

    Missing taken off boat

    Will take picture of the same type Fish Doctor rod. This is the mate to the missing rod and reel. Fish Doctor made a few of them and they are all numbered . He has the names of the people who bought them with address and phone numbers. Fish Doctor can verify that it was one he made. This rod stands out you cannot miss it. I will up the reward to $150.00 I like to catch the creep. Bill Wahl

    Missing taken off boat

    I did put a game trail camera on boat when I had 4 rods stolen 3 years ago. It didn't work the way I wanted. Every movement outside boat set it off, was taking pictures every 10 seconds. So I scrapped that idea.
  9. Missing (1) Fish Doctor 9'6 Dipsey rod with Shimano Tekota 600 line counter. Has Fish Doctors name on rod. This brown rod stands out, taken from Catfish Creek marina on evening of July 10 or 11. This is a roller rod with swivel end. If they tried to remove Fish Doctor name it would damage or score the rod. Contact Bill Wahl 1-845-482-9945 or 1-845-701-2935 $100.00 reward
  10. I fabricated this to check on water in gas tank. I took a 1" nut , capped one end, drilled 1/4" holes near bottom of nut. I had to have weight to hold down plastic hose, using the nut as weight. I tipped boat back, pulled gas sending unit out, for access. I was able to reach end of tank, corners etc. You can drain gallons out in no time. It works!!!
  11. I also have a 9.9 Honda 4 stroke, with the extra long shaft. I cannot get the motor high enough, I lock the motor in and make sure you are in neutral. I have been doing this for 11 years with no problems what so ever. Every fall when I service the Honda, I add 2 washers between prop and nut, it wears the washers out. I have over 3000 hours on the Honda.

  15. Seems to me that last year killed the fishing for the next years coming. Guys were out there taking more than they should have. I spoke to a tackle shop and asked him how is business. (Sucks) very little business!!! Our camp marina has 40 some odd slips, last week end 3 boats out!!! We fished 3 mornings approx. 5 to 6 hour trips, 2 lakers caught and released. Fished from 20ft to 350ft, pods of bait every depth and a very few hooks if any. Person I was fishing with, I asked him where is the brown trout, says they will be here. I say where the hell are they coming from, the (freezers)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Watch a video taken last spring , 30 Plus browns and you name it taken in a few hours. 3 fish in a net. Come on give me a break!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just my thoughts
