  1. Lots of boats on Lake Ontario in the 10k hour range. I even know of one that went 16k... 5500 is nothing..
  2. I would recommend B and W customs in Sodus Point. Bill and Billy Jr are the best around at glass and the only guys I let touch my boat. They are straight shooters. If it can be fixed they will tell you if not they will tell you. And don't ever let anyone tell you 5500 is the end of a life on a motor... That is in-experience with motors. Plenty of life left if it is well maintained. Plenty of boats reach 10k plus hours on the troll. Good Luck with whatever decision you make.
  3. One other item to keep in mind with salt boats. North of Jersey the boats are hauled for winter for the most part. South of Jersey they are in the water 24/7 365 days. It does make a difference.
  4. Come on out Wednesday to the VFW in Mexico!
  5. Thank you to all that responded! I am all set. I am sure there are other teams who are or will be looking.
  6. Team Tall Tails is looking for an observer for the Sodus Pro Am and or the A-TOM-MIK invitational. The dates for the Sodus Pro Am are July 17 and 18th, you must be available both days. The Invitational in Oswego is on August 7th with a scheduled blow day of the 8th, again you must be available both days. Please feel free to text me at 607 423 4415 if you are interested or a PM here. We will pay you a daily rate of $100.00. This is a great opportunity to learn from some of the best teams around and we run a 36ft boat so you should get paired on a similar sized vessel so it should be comfortable. Brian
  7. That also might be to good a picture in some cases. Fish on bait can be more difficult to entice. Try sliding out 15 or 20 feet north of them on the next pass and see if you can bit by fish moving in or out off that picture. Sometimes that can help entice the bites.
  8. Chowder i will take these. Will you be in Olcott this week? I can get them from you then.
  9. You didnt by chance install something new near the heading sensor or store something metal near it?
  10. Is it that it just responds to slow? there are settings for reactionary speed. Also at least on mine (not a 44) the speed input is critical so it knows how fast to respond.
  11. Did you just install it or was it working and now its failing? I have had several brands of Autopilots over the years and SIMRAD is far and away the best.
  12. Launch is open, Have at it.
  13. If you want to spice up your Coho program try a Big Jon rattle board 15ft in front of the thin fish. These boards have sand in them and make noise going thru the water. Coho can not resist them. Also Steelhead will pound these if they are in there surface mood. My Coho program has two of these out on each side of the boat on straight mono and 2 more rods with short cores on small boards usually with the small dodgers and coho flies.
  14. 15 inches behind the little red dodgers is the standard. I run the same leader length behind the 6in spinnies as well. 30lb test Fluro carbon will give you the stiffness you need.
  15. That would add a whole new level to our license... you would need food prep as well. that is a thing if you look at the applications and renewals. also for me that would grease up the cabin where the tackle is stored... NOPE!!
