  2. That 115 Yamaha must be the perfect motor for Thad Fishmaster. Enough power to get you there, but smooth enough to troll with. Jealous. Thanks - Rusty
  3. Super Ski Planer Boards $75 For sale is a pair of used Super Ski twin planer boards. I bought them used from someone on this site years ago, and have never used them. I think there are supposed to be cute little flags with them, but sadly they are missing. I'm not interested in shipping, but am willing to meet in the Syracuse or Watertown area, or somewhere in between within reason. Payment accepted- US cash Call or text with questions. 315-726-1608 Thanks- Rusty
  4. Stillwater, I haven't been there in a couple of weeks. When I was there, one side of the launch was open. Obviously the water was high, and the parking lot was pretty muddy due to the heavy equipment, but I was able to launch. I was told they hope to have the project completed by Memorial Day.

  5. https://www.facebook.com/groups/837633826270487/permalink/1529397590427437/ I read that it all ended well ! Thanks - Rusty
  6. Sorry, didn't even notice. Thanks - Rusty
  7. Howdy all, I read this article on Project 2014 and thought there might be others who would find it interesting and informative as well. Is Plan 2014 really the culprit behind Lake Ontario's high water levels? http://www.syracuse.com/news/index.ssf/2017/04/is_plan_2014_really_the_culprit_behind_lake_ontarios_high_water_levels.html Thanks - Rusty
  8. Howdy all, I stopped in at the FH launch to get a first hand look at the water level. In case you haven't heard, it's high. I just read an article stating that it's about 21" above normal, and is expected to get another 10" higher. Crazy ! Thanks - Rusty
  9. Thanks PAP, Seems as if reports from all around NY have the water being high. Best of luck to you on your attempts ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. owasco 4.26.17 Howdy all, I launched around 3 pm from Emerson Park. It's still a mess, so if you plan on going there, bring your patience pills. I headed south, trying to set up a troll that would bring me around Burtis point. The floating debris in the water from mid to east side made any kind of a successful troll pretty much a waste of time. I stuck to the west half of the lake and managed to get a few flat lines out for a while, but they produced nothing. I found a few good screens in the lower half of the lake, and connected with one 20" ish laker from 100' on a bright small spoon. All my other attempts came up empty. Anyway, the weather was great, and it beat working ! Rusty

  13. Honestly, thats a great price for those boards. They'll sell quickly. I can appreciate why the pins were replaced. They should probably be metal out of the box. I have one with a broken pin and now its a pain to use. Obviously I didnt know about the edit, but the wise guy in me took over for a minute. Nothing worse than someone calling you out publicly on an asking price. I went through it when I sold a boat on this site. Rusty Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. @dannycoleman, If you cant find any of the $90-$100 boards, these are available new for $75 And what were you thinking asking a question ? Dont you know theres no "cluttering" allowed in this thread ! Rusty Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  17. The water level at the south launch seemed to be adequate. I haven't been there in a few years, but I had no issues. The water was so muddy I couldnt see bottom. I think the ff was reading in the 2'+ range. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  18. Owasco 4.18.17 Howdy all, My first real attempt at finding fish for the year. I launched from the South Shore Marina ($8) at about 11 am. There was a slight, but chilly north breeze. I motored out to the deep water and set up with riggers and a 3 color lead core pulling a couple different versions of Stinger scorpions. To make a long story short, I putted around for about 3 hrs switching things up, speed, depth, lures etc. I did one 18" laker on a chartreuse smithwick 45' down over deep water. Most of the few fish I did mark were at 80'ish over 100+ I forgot to load the trolling bag, so I ended up using the 9.9 kicker, which worked very well. This week I'm thinking I'll probably leave it on the boat. Water was about 41 when I started, hit almost 47 at 2pm. I saw one other boat trolling. Hopefully they did better than I. Still beats working !
  19. NY 2017 Budget According to this article, the bills involving Antler restrictions, Crossbows and legal hunting age were not included in this year's budget. http://www.registerstar.com/sports/article_d244c334-215f-11e7-873d-174d8642420c.html Rusty
  20. Thanks Sk8, There's definitely a lot to be said for having a backup engine, or in the case you described, two ! Luckily for you the Admiral is a great guy to help a man when in trouble. Rusty. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Thanks guys, I have those same concerns, but my questions are these two: 1) The engine is a 4 stroke. Will that "load up" like a 2 stroke ? 2) The smart control is designed to bring the motor to low rpms. Would a manufacturer offer such an accessory if it would cause the motor's performance to deteriorate ? I really enjoy the peace of mind of having a second motor in case something goes wrong. However the weight of the 150, combined with the 9.9 makes the boat very stern heavy, thus it steers very poorly. To compensate for the bow beings high, I have taken to filling the bow livewell, which improves the steering quite a bit. I'll post what the ultimate decision is. It's gonna require more field work, and research. Thanks again ! Rusty Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  22. Owasco 4.12.17 Howdy all, I did a shake down cruise out of Emerson Park this afternoon. The launch is a muddy mess, and the water is high. I trolled a bit around the north end without any action. Tried riggers and a 4 color lead core with a few different spoons. Surface temp was 39*, and the Northwest wind was pretty chilly as well. I was able to troll down to 2.3 mph with the 150 Mercury using the smartcraft gauge system. If that continues to work, I'll probably remove the 9.9 kicker. There are still walleye in the lake. I could see a few lying on the bottom in the outlet. Rusty
  23. The launch is open. Saw at least 9 boats near the north end this morning. Looked like the might be searching for perch. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
