  1. Launched yesterday and trolled from the creek to the nose at several depths with no luck. It was good to get out anyway. Don
  2. Glad to hear you had a good trip and you're boat worked okay. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  3. THanks, I will check into that. Looking to buy
  4. Trailer for 28 foot Baha Fisherman 10.5 feet wide with twin screws.
  5. Missdemeanor Thank you for the information. Who did your custom rudders?
  6. Thankyou for your reponse. I tried to message but I guess I do not know how. Do you have an auto pilot? If so, what brand and what kind of steering?
  7. Thankyou to both of you for the information. Did either of youy put larger rudders on the boat as well?
  8. We were trolling today on one engine in our twin engine boat with two large sea anchors deployed. There was a two knot current and wind. When we trolled into the current and wind we had to run our engine at 1200 rpm or more which caused a lot of vibration. If we removed the sea anchors to reduce the load the vibration went away and there is no vibration at high speed. Any ideas on what might cause this?Don
  9. I purchase a 28Ft Baha fisherman this year. The boat has dual engines and mechanical steering and we use it to troll for salmon and trout in Lake Ontario. We have been trolling with one engine and two sea anchors and are obtaining reasonable performance. It is difficult to steer particularly in a following sea and require considerable force to turn the wheel with the engine running although the wheel turns easily when the boat is not moving. Someone else in the marina suggested we increase the size of the rudders to improve the steering and I believe that installing hydraulic steering would ease the steering and allow us to install an auto pilot. Does anyone have any suggestions? Don
  10. I noticed that the engines have 1000 hours. Was this repowered sometime along?
  11. I live in the Roch area. How do I get to look at it?
  12. I fished Hemlock on Thursday. It was my second time on the lake. I do not have a downrigger on the boat so I fished two top lines with various color 4 inch raps with no success. I then jigged some of the points on the east shore and caught a few bass. Any need some help with techniques and lure selection to catch the cold water species would be appreciated. I did notice that the three boats that were trolling concentrated on the west side in the bottom third of the lake. Don
  13. Are the docks in at the launch yet?
  14. I am looking to add an auto pilot to my 21 footer with hydralic steering. I just want to use it for trolling, not cross lake trips. What unit to people have good experience with. The primary feature I am looking for is the ability to maintain course at slow speeds into the wind. My Mink
