    Video on gobie on bass spawn

    I simply don't fish for bass or panfish in cayuga or seneca any longer.. I have been doing that type of fishing at skaneateles or Keuka pass few years... Same thing happens with sunfish.. remove a sunfish from its bed, and its over run by those ugly little bastards.. makes me sick, when I think of the fishing I and my sons enjoyed on cayuga and seneca every summer.. I hope those ugly slimy little demons NEVER make it to the Finger lakes where they currently don't exist... bob

    carpet alternatives

    Light colored bedliner will work great... So will plain old deck paint that has a bit of sand sprinkled on it.. Thats the way it was done by mariners/navy men for hundreds of years.. let the deck paint get tacky and sprinkle some fine sand on top. Never understood carpeting in a fishing boat myself.. Rots and keeps the wood its glued to wet so it rots as well.. bob
  3. Great i might take you up on that... bob
  4. they are hard to find in the extreme... couple years ago when I bought the boat [1980 grumman 14 ft.-side console], it had a 9.5 merc with a remote steer kit installed.. it was badly underpowered, so i tried to find a good used remote steer short shaft 20-25 HP, and it was impossible .. i had to extend the transom tp accept a 20 inch shaft motor, and still 95% of long shaft motors in the 25-30 HP range are tillers... not only that, but so far i can buy a 70 or 90 HP for what guys are asking for a 25... in any case,, still looking, long or short shaft at this point.. bob
  5. Can't use a tiller,, boat has a side console,, need a remote steer... Will also consider an 15-18 or 20 HP remote steer.. Prefer a long shaft but will consider a short shaft as well.. the boat is old, beat up, and not very valuable so i am not looking to spend a fortune on a nearly new motor.. can't use a 4 stroke, too heavy... Looking for a good runner thats been well maintained... bob
  6. actually, the white paint and decals have gotten smeared up from gas, and it looks uglier than this now.. Hence the $50 price tag...
  7. In case anyone is interested.. If for whatever reason this motor doesn't start or is a headache that isn't worth fixing, i would gladly take it back and give your money back.. i don't particularly need $50, and would not bother trying to sell a worthless motor to make $50.. Last thing i want is to sell my headache to someone else for a measly $50.. so yeah, i guarantee it works, simply give me a call and I'll give your money back.. I have been screwed myself on several motors for a lot of money over the years, and it pisses me off.. would not do it to someone else... bob
  8. New water pump, good compression. . was running smoothly late last summer last time I had it started, Water pump alone cost $20, and I installed it last september and it was not used after, just started up to check the pump.. Its kind of ugly, but is solid and intact.. This is the MATE 2 HP model from the 1970's with tank on top.. $50 takes it away...
  9. No thanks,,, My Grumman 17 has a 70, and the grumman 14 has a 28,, that 16 with a 48 is in the middle of both and there is really no need ... Still looking for that 25 or thereabouts... bob
  10. Long shaft remote steer only please.. Not easy to find these I realize that.. Boat is a Grumman 14 with remote steer and controls with a 28 HP long shart.. Its actually a bit overpowerd so i don't want to go above about 30 HP.. a 20 0r 25 would be best, but I will go over or under depending on what I can find.. I have already inquired about getting my 28 fixed up, but am not sure its cost effective.. I will also consider buying a complete boat/motor trailer set up with a long shaft engine in that HP range, and just using the motor and controls, and selling the boat and trailer , or just replacing my boat/motor and trailer with whatever I buy... Let me know what you have . Not looking for a newer high dollar set up-. this motor is for my 14 footer, I also have a 17 center console with a 70 HP that I use on bigger water.. . bob
  11. Anyone have a phone #, or an email?/.. Tried PM"ing Hank a couple times from this site, never got a response.. I would like to have him look at an OB motor for me this winter, but can find nothing online about L&M Marine, and the only way I know to contact him is via PM.. If anyone can help I would appreciate it, or hopefully hank sees this, and can get back to me.. Info can be emailed to me instead of responding publicly... bob [email protected]

    Brown or LL salmon??

    Yeah I was 100% sure it was brown, but the NJ DEC says no.. However, who knows.. they might think its a salmon if browns were not stocked in the lake where it was caught, but that means nothing.. Different trout/ salmon species get thrown in with the "correct" ones at times.. Several years ago, I found a freshly stocked dead LL salmon here in Candor in Catatonk creek, that somehow got mixed with the small browns they stock here.. bob

    Brown or LL salmon??

    Well, It looked like a Brown to me, and most others that responded here, but NJ Fish and Wildlife says it is indeed a LL salmon... bob

    Brown or LL salmon??

    Thanks Stinger, very nice photo.. Typically, browns and LL salmon are easy enough to tell apart.. However, once in a while you get a LL with more spots and a more bronze sheen than most, or a brown with less spots and a more silvery look, and there in lies the confusion..... this photo show a very clear contrast... bob
