  1. Nice fish. Did you launch out of the bay or river? Was there a lot of garbage in the water? Thanks
  2. congrats on getting out. looks like that brown never spawned. Pretty colors on it.
  3. You can really mount anything you want on the track system. I have all the rod holders mounted on them for when i troll. You can get a plate for it and mount it there. Based on the floor plan i would go with the fury. Looks to be wider than the rebel on this one. Assuming the sides are the same height. Lund makes a great product and i got mine from Seager as well. Have always had good success with them and they have treated me right. I have the rebel 16.25 and it has the same layout as the fury for seating. It has a nice wide beam and a high gunwale as well.
  4. I have the Lund rebel 16.25 50HP bought it in 2008. I love the boat. Been in a lot of weather i probably should not have been in. It rides great in the waves if your smart about it. The swing trailer allows me to keep it in the garage all year. Can't say enough about it. I use it for bass, pike, perch, trout salmon. I have had it on Erie, Ontario and every finger lake around. Great boat all around.
  5. My 2017 deer season

    First deer i ever shot I hit in the jugular. He went down and then jumped back up. Had hair and a little blood then nothing. Tried to track it with friends and no luck, Next day keep searching and then found the puddles. Was very interesting for a first track. Glad you found her.
  6. I used jplugs down 5 foot or so and flat lined. Went a little faster than normal 2.5 - 3 MPH seemed to work last i did it. That was a couple years ago.
  7. Yup, have done well up the river with Jplugs. Also got to see 2 deer fighting on the bank. Nice trip and generally will run into one or 2.
  8. It is a separate run to the fuse box. I asked about the unit on here and was told to upgrade. Live and learn the hard way. I was just hoping they would have replaced unit for discount is all. I had a crappy 30 dollar one i replaced with this one. i can move the helix up front when i am up there. Same power and cables. I remember the good old cays where you could bring your graph in at the derby to get them serviced and ugly stick would send you a new rod no questions asked if it broke. Wow i sound like an old man.
  9. Humminbird -- really bad experice with them Just called Hummingbird for the 197c DI unit for the front of the boat when i am using the trolling motor. The other day on Erie is just stopped. So i tried to call in and waited for an hour as i was the next in line and never got to talk to anyone. Figured i would try on line. They asked how i had it set up and informed them power was good and it worked for my Helix 5 on the dash. They informed me it would be 100 dollars to service the unit. It only cost 80 new. They said nothing they can do and have a good day. Man, i used to really like this company. Guess i am going with Lowrance now. Just a warning about the company. Rant over.
  10. I-Bay fishing

    Launch at the south West end. you would have to cross the bay.
  11. Legacy- 2017 Deer Season

    Thanks for starting this up. i had a blown out knee and this thread made it easier to deal with. i am going to finish setting up cameras this week and scout pretty heavy. Good luck to all this season .
  12. Thanks for the information. I will give it a try this year.
  13. Seneca Smallies

    Were you feeling the bottom with the weight? Pending depth i like 1/2 OZ and make sure you can feel it bumping on the bottom. I like cross tail shads on it. Seem to work best for me. I use a palomar knot and then feed the string back in from the top so hook is facing straight up. About a foot to the bottom. Have done well on Erie doing this.
  14. What do you do to can fish? Honestly never thought of this. For venison are you cooking everything then can it? Sounds interesting to try.
  15. I heard Mitchel's is open on other side of the channel. Small boat launch at south end.
