  1. 1) Nice boat. 2) Catch and Release ? No mess there, and I know Wegmans is nearby. Rusty
  2. Hairy, It does mid 30's with one person in it. The doel-fin helps quite a bit. Rusty.
  3. Thanks Chris. Im thinking that with four guys coming to look at it tonight, the asking price must be in the ballpark. Rusty
  4. What the heck was I thinking ? Thanks BigMac ! Rusty
  5. I finally convinced myself that it is time to sell. Hopefully I wont regret it , as it's a perfect fishing machine, new ones are pretty pricey, and good used ones are difficult to find. More details and pictures at : http://syracuse.craigslist.org/boa/5051428013.html Thanks for looking- Rusty

  10. I have a 196 superfisherman with a 115 4 stroke saltwater. Cannon downriggers, 24v minkota, lowrance HDS 5, autopilot. It's being winterized now. I don't know exactly what it books, mid teens? Let me know. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Cool, Do you have a stand any where near that field ?
  12. Howdy All, I tried it again today on Skaneateles. It was quite a bit slower than last week. Did one laker on a firetiger needlefish @50ish, and a 20 'bow on a pink/white stinger @35. That was between 7-8, then nothing. The water was dead calm, so I went into jigging mode. I find that the bottom schools of lakers that I mark on my ff seem to be very small, and I can usually only pull one fish up before I drift past the school. Today was no exception. I found some fish in 50', and brought up a SMB using a white tube on a big leadhead jig. I found a school of fish on the bar in front of 5 mile point, and brought up a couple of small lakers. I hit a spot on the east side in front of a sailboat club. I always mark fish on the bottom in this spot, but they are always deeeeeeeeep. It took at least 30 seconds for my jig to get to the 157' where I was marking fish. On most drops I would have a fish on as soon as I reeled in the slack from the bottom. The fish weren't very big, 15"? maybe. I landed he first one , but it was so bloated I had to puncture the swim bladder to get it to go back down. The rest of the lakers from that deep I brought up more slowly, and then did a 'long line release' with them after I saw what size they were. For those of you that are unfamiliar with this lake, it typically is an early bite, ending by 9 or so when the weather is nice. Also, I think this coming weekend is the old boat show, so the launch will be extra busy with the wooden boat people. When I docked around 11 a this morning, the parking lot was full, and there was a fresh pile of broken red trailer light lense from the most recent victim. I picked up a couple more needlefish at All Season Sports in Pulaski the other day. I think the ones they had were mostly the #2s. Good Luck, Rusty
  13. Howdy all, A similar report from me. I hit skinny last Wed and Thurs from about 7-10am Two riggers, one around 50, one 35, and one 7 color lead core. Riggers took lots of 15"-20" lakers with small bronze stingers and needlefish. The core took a 20 "? rainbow and a 20"? Atlantic. I had a small joined perch rapala on the end of that line. I also had a couple of big SMBs taken on the core. The rainbow was released, as was the LL, however the LL was a floater, and ended up going the livewell. I gave it to John Gaulke at the ramp. He cleaned it there, and we saw a bunch of 1/2" perch fry in it. I hope to try it again tomorrow. Rusty
  14. Looks like fun. I bought a kayak a couple of weeks ago and am eager to begin fishing from it. How'd you get the cowbells to 100 feet. ? Thanks- Rusty Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. The closest one I'm aware of is on rose hill rd. They usually have crabs minners and worms. Google says there's one on crow hill rd. Don't know if they sell crabs. Good luck Rusty. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. I think mine is an '04. I dont want or need to go any faster than 32 mph, usually I'm doing less so I can watch for debris, and hopefully keep the MPG from taking a beating. As long as you are all here, any of you have a swim platform on the fishmaster ? I'd like to have one, but the 'marina' I talked to in Syracuse wasn't interested in doing it, and suggested I talk to Forest Fisheries in Homer. I called them once, and didn't get an answer, and have never remembered to call back. Thanks- Rusty
  17. I trolled owasco for 3 hours on fri June 27th. Started on the north end finished when I got to the bs camp. Used a 7 color , wire dipsey and a rigger. Spoons, sticks and spin drs. Had one hit on the wire, but other than that it was nothing but fleas and more fleas. Judging from what I saw on the ff, I may have been better off jigging. Next time !

  20. I had a similar experience there years ago. I think the docks are made from used pallets, you have to dodge traffic launching , park on the side of the road, and pay a hefty price. The boat I had at the time fit at the dock, but the owners watched as I had to make numerous attempts at docking fighting a west wind, in the snow. Never been back.

  21. A few years ago I switched to Blackhorn 209 powder. It causes nearly zero fouling , and reloading a second shot is much easier than when I used pyrodex or 777. I only wish it came in pellets. I also use Barnes bullets. Love em Rusty.
  22. Howdy all, Trolled Owasco today from 12-5. Lots of good bait balls. The ones I saw were on the west side 40-60 feet down over 100'. I couldn't get a spoon to fire. Ended up going 6 for 6 on lakers. 5 were on stickbaits,one on a dodger/fly. I usually dont check surface temp, but for some reason I think it was 63. The 54 degree water was at about 55 feet, but it moved a few times. I was hoping for a rainbow- but no luck. Might be the last trip for the year. Oh well, that means its deer season soon Rusty
  23. Ended up with several hits on the same leacore line, but couldn't keep anything hooked up. Took one 20"+ laker near the bottom in 85' on a chartreuse evil eye. I decided to try and calibrate the reel I use on the wire dipsey set up. While drifting, I let the dipsey sink to the bottom. In 80 fow, the line counter read 110. I'll have make my own chart now, and perhaps catch something on the darn thing. Rusty
  24. Can't buy a laker or rainbow. Got one 20" walleye on a 7 color lead core over 150' on a fire tiger needlefish. Weird.
