  1. Look at OUTBOARDDIRCT.COM. Got a good price on my 9.9 Tohatsu this spring.
  2. Official name is Cercopagis pengoi. They show up in the lake when it warms up, usually from now through September. The problem they cause is they collect on your line going to the downrigger. Heavier line will usually help, like 30-40 lb test. I splice in about 150 ft of 40 lb test line and use a 20 or 25 lb test leader.
  3. Fleas were good today. Fishing wasn't.
  4. How are the fleas off Rochester?
  5. It's too bad. Owned a 2006 115 hp etec for 11 years and loved it. Put about 100 hrs a year on it, mostly trolling hrs. Only took it into the dealer every 3 years. Replaced boat and motor two years ago with a Almacraft and a Yamaha 4 stroke. Looked for boats with an etec but couldn't find much around here. It seems to be a choice of Mercury or Yamaha.
  6. Same on Friday for me and talk to couple other guys, all lakers.
  7. It depends on the tv. I had an older smart tv but couldn't get it. Now I have a Roku tv and do have it. It was about $8 a month or $79 or so for the full year which is what I got. You can buy a Roku pretty cheap and your all set. I think they start around $30 and go up to about $100 depending on the model.
  8. Personally if a launch isn't blocked off I'd use it but I do fish alone. Last Tuesday when I launched at the Genesee another boat was being launched with 5 people aboard. (24ft) That's an example of why they closed the launches.
  9. I have a Minn Kota Terrova 80 Trolling Motor, paid about $1600 new for it 2 yrs ago. I use it on my 18ft alumacraft t-pro 185 trolling on lake 0. Works great when fishing alone.It has a wireless remote so I can control it from anywhere in the boat. I use 2 18 inch trolling bags and main motor 150hp yamaha 4 stroke. When landing a bigger fish I put the big motor in neutral to make netting easier and the trolling motor keeps the other lines straight. I'd get the biggest motor you can afford but at least the size I have 80 lbs 24 volt.
  10. Went by it today and looked open to me. Going to use it Saturday.
  11. Just bought a 9.9 Tohatsu with electric start and power trim from OUTBOARDDIRECT.COM. Free delivery and no tax. I talked to the guy on the phone and turns out he used to own onlineoutboards. For what ever reason he sold it and practice law for awhile and then decided to start another outboard business. After chatting with me for awhile he offered me a $100 off. I'm using this as a kicker on my Alumacraft t-pro 185. Ran it for an hour Thursday just for break-in, 9 more hours to go.
