  1. Stopped by the launch to see what's up. The water is up. Lol Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. There are different size anode trim tabs. If you look in any boating accessory catalog you will see them listed. Sometimes you need to use just a flat anode without the trim tab Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. If you don't see oil coming out the top hole when you remove the screw or need to add oil showing low on dipstick. The only safe way is to attach pump to lower hole and remove upper plug. Pump oil until it begins to flow out top plug hole. Replace top screw first and then quickly install lower screw All done. Any other way you risk too much or too little oil Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Early Alpha 1 gen 2 had the dipstick in the center of the top cover. Check in down and level position be VERY careful taking the top cover off he upper gear housing. There are shims under the cover that set backlash on upper gears. Losing any spells catastrophe Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. It's my understanding that the zebra mussels in L Ontario have been replaced by the quagga mussel nd the zebras are all but extinct Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. Pancake weights = tangles They take on a life of their own in currents and wind. Avoid them like the plague Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. In Watertown , at the mall there is a guy with a sandwich board sign walking up and Down the road. Sign says going out of business Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. The end of Gander Mountain http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/The-End-of-Gander-Mountain-Chain-Going-Out-of-Business-421532264.html
  9. What year is the boat ? Mercruiser used several different ignition systems . Delco EST was used in 91-92 If you have an older delco system (points) , it may have been updated with an aftermarket electronic ignition . You have to identify the system you have before you can buy parts
  10. I've watched them haul the nets and put many live fish back in the water Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. They look like the buoys that the DEC uses to mark their nets . They set up nets to sample the kind and number of species present in a body of water . I see similar buoys on nets on the St. Lawrence.
  12. I second this opinion not the right time of year for upwelling. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. And that's the problem with these small mom and pop businesses . There is little to no record keeping . Taxidermy mounts,whether finished or not, should have the customers name attached to the game . I'm sorry that this man's business went south , he obviously made quality tackle . The fact that his website is open and he continues to take orders is very concerning and should be brought to the attention of the NY state AG's office . I lost a mooring cover several years ago ,when the woman that owned the sewing shop suddenly closed shop and dissapeared . Caveat Emptor !!
  14. I have used pro troll flashers for years . Do they make a difference ? Very hard to tell . I've caught fish using them and not using them . The piezo electric ceramic ball that is inside the metal tube emits a small electric discharge when it strikes the end of the tube . They don't wear out , but if you drop them they may take on water . If they rattle when you shake them , they are working .
  15. breaded and fried tastes just like chicken
