  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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

    Brown or LL salmon??

    Help us out.. this is from a NJ site, and yes NJ has LL salmon in several lakes as well as browns lakers, bows, SMB Muskies, Pike, walleyes, and LOTS of hybrid Stripers.. Guy caught this one and thought it was a LL, but it looked a lot more like a brown in coloration.. Any thoughts??... bob https://postimg.cc/3kp00vSd

    what are your favorite lures to jig for panfish?

    With any small jig, no matter what the design, [Tiny twister tails are as good as anything I have ever used, and they are cheap], a little piece of earthworm makes a huge difference.. Also if you have no worms, tiny slices of any panfish are just as good......bob

    what are your favorite lures to jig for panfish?

    I find its too much work to jig unless the fish are pretty stacked up... used to jig for them exclusively... However, in my experience, for every nice size panfish I catch with a small jig, I can catch 10 or more with a small hook, small worm, and a split shot.. Not only that, but I catch a lot of big bass, bullheads etc as well.. Only place I no longer fish worms is on cayuga,, the gobies are too fierce.. If you must jig I have always found very small Mister twisters or very small marabou jigs productive.. Small 1/16 or 1/32 marabou jig with a little piece of earthworm is the best lure you can use for most any panfish, and SMB hit them hard as well... bob. bob

    Sampson State Park photo update

    Will the ramp still be free with park admission I wonder?.. Or will there be a "ramp fee" on top of park entrance fee?... bob

    One day left

    Cayuga lakers are getting close to post spawn, and many will be hitting again.. I have had good luck jigging for them in mid/late November

    Fall Brown Trout Fishing Fingerlakes Tributaries

    I could be wrong I guess, but that Brown looks like he's been in that creek for a while.. Don't see many with that bold natural coloration coming straight from the lake... T

    Cayuga Cayuga conditions?? UPDATE

    Understood, and I won't argue, but although the interval is faster on the finger lakes, there are no NO steep "rollers", no deep troughs, and NO hard running tide against heavy wind.. these are the things that typically sink boats, not a short windy chop with that gets you wet and uncomfortable.. There are certainly conditions on seneca and cayuga that should rule out any fishing of course, but as far as "life threatening?, especially in a well built 19 footer??.. Personally i have yet to see it.. I have seen it many times in salt water bays and the ocean.. Even 100 foot head boats stay in port at those times.. There are a LOT of days, I wouldn't go out on any of the fingers, even in 25 footer, but not because it was too dangerous, and that I might not live through the day, it would simply be the fact that it would be uncomfortable, and the fishing would suck anyway.. The shallow fast white caps in the fingers won't sink many well designed boats, but those big standing rollers in the Great lakes and the oceans sink plenty.. safety first always of course, there we agree.... bob

    Cayuga Cayuga conditions?? UPDATE

    geez, I regularly take a 14 footer when I don't feel like trailering my 17 center console.. This is the Finger Lakes, not the north Atlantic 200 miles offshore.. If your 18 footer is in good shape, and you have the required safety equipment get out there and enjoy yourself.. If you are really THAT worried, do as I do, and wear your PFD at all times.. I never leave the ramp until mine is on and secured, then I go out there and enjoy myself.. there are very few days on cayuga lake where your life would be endangered by being on the water... You might get your ass bounced around and wet, and fishing might not be comfortable, but real danger???.. I have fished these lakes for 27 years in boats from 14 to 18 feet , and have NEVER once felt endangered... The waves just don't get as steep as the ocean or the great lakes.. choppy, white caps, howling winds, yes, but if your 18 footer is of a good design its fine.. In 27 years of fishing cayuga, I have never once seen the deep troughs that can swallow the bow or stern under green water, or cause a boat to broach... You are much more likely to simply get some spray in your face than you are to sink in the Finger lakes.. Pick a reasonable day,get out there, and enjoy yourself.. If its so rough that you are uncomfortable in an 18 footer, simply pack it in and wait for a better day..... bob
