  1. I have a 1964 Evinrude Lark VI 40 hp that I bought for the first boat I ever owned. I've owned this motor since around 1990. It's a good running motor. I had it started a couple of weeks ago. See video - http://qik.com/video/f20e90e41c0a4d67a040a5bee545bc83. It comes with all the controls (throttle and ignition). I had trouble this last time starting it with the key. Never had a trouble with it in the past. May just be a breaker. Have not had time to investigate yet. Just wanted to mention that up front. The motor is in good condition. And like I said earlier, it runs good. If you would like to take a closer look at it, send me a PM. It is located in Webster NY. I would prefer local pickup only. Asking $400.00 or B.O. Thanks.
  2. Here is a link to some pictures from Sunday. http://mayfishingonlakeontario.shutterf ... ctures#n_5
  3. Has anyone around Rochester seen any smelt runs this year?
  4. I looked at the cable we removed and sure enough right on the end it said 18FT. Thank for the help guys! Really appreciate it.
  5. Hello everyone, I know there will be someone on this board that can answer these couple questions for me. First let me give you a little background on the task at hand. Bought a Simrad AP14r autopilot this winter and started the install process this weekend in a 1986 Starcraft Offshore 22 ft. Everything is going smoothly so far. The unit fits nicely under the console. The old steering cable came out fine. Except for all the wires that were tywrapped to it. The two questions are as follows. 1) How do I determine the correct length for the new cable I have to purchase? The old steering was a Teleflex rack and pinion system. The install manual gives the cable part number but doesn't direct you how to make sure the new cable will be the right length to go back in. 2) It says in the instructions to mount the Fluxgate Compass at the centerline of the boat. The boat is 99% used for trolling for trout and salmon. It seems to me that it would give better feedback to the controller if the compass was mounted towards the bow. Looking for suggestions on where to mount the compass. The unit does have gain control for the corrections. Plus in our boat, mounting the compass where they suggest would be a pain. Thanks in advance for any help you could provide, Dave
  6. (SpoonFed) : Fishing Report ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== The Sodus Pro-Am for the second year was a big disappointment for our boat. It's not the tournament that's the issue. The tournament is very well run and we have a great time fishing in it and look forward to it every year. It's our luck that needs to change for this tournament. This year the waves on Saturday Morning were a little more than our crew wanted to manage. We came in early Sat morning due to 6 fters with one fish (8lbs). Apparently we were bigger cowards than the rest of the fleet. We were the only ones to come in early!!???? The decision to motor in early, in hindsight, was a good move. Sunday we fished till the motor decided to s*@# the bed. Fuel pump! Had to limp in at 1100 rpm with 3 fish (24, 20 and 8lbs). That’s as all fuel pump could keep up with. Even though we haven’t produced yet in the PRO-AM, we’ll be back next year to give it another whack. Now the LOC on the other hand was fantastic. We took Friday off to pre-fish for the Pro-Am. The word was that the fish were being caught in 150 ft. So we headed north out of the channel in Sodus to 150 ft. We fished for a while and caught a couple fish. We decided to try out deeper and pointed the boat north. Zig zagging our way out we hooked into a fish in 320 ft of water. It hit a rig we had just put in the water and dropped it down to 92 ft, deeper than we had fished all day. The fish hit the lure and just started screaming out line. 300 feet, 400 feet, 500 feet. We had just re-spooled the reels the weekend before so we knew how much line was on there (750ft). The fish took no time to hit 600 feet on the line counter. I started to get a little nervous at this point, due to the fact that the fish wasn’t slowing down. I yelled up to Pat to start turning the boat, this fish was intent on spooling the reel. Pat yelled back to ask how much line I had left a second time and the counter was at 675 ft now. He said, “I though you just said a moment ago that you were at 600 feet?†I said, “ A moment ago I was!†At this point I had to put my thumb on the reel to slow him down. Ouch does that burn. Once I finally got him stopped it took another 30 minutes to get him in the boat. As it hit the deck we all looked at each other and said, "Damn that’s a big fish." Weighed it on the boat an it was almost 30 lbs. Then there was a Chinese firedrill to get everything picked up and out of the water to get this fish in to the weigh in station. It seemed to take forever to get to the dock. Got it on the scales and it weighed in at 29lbs 7 oz. 2 ounces larger than the leader. Then the shock set in that we were actually leading the LOC. WOW! We now only had two days to sweat it out. It ended up holding up even with all the pro’s fishing the same waters that this fish came from. It hit a black Challenger flasher with a glow ladderback trailing a green crinkle fly. I'd like to say thanks to Chris from Jolly II for joining our team again this year. Great Job! (add pictures and any other details not captured above here)
  7. Grand Prize Salmon - 29lb 07oz Caught off of Sodus on Black with Glow Ladderback Challenger flasher / Green Crinkle Fly, 92 over 300.
  8. Here is the best page I found for information on how to identify an Atlantic Salmon vs a brown trout. http://www.fishcreeksalmon.org/atlantic-salmon-id.htm Hope this helps!
  9. Nice job Rick! I was trying to find time to get out with u guys, but it didn't work out. Looks like I should have made the time. Nice fish!
  10. We fish the cowballs right at the ball. No more than 10 ft or so. They for sure aren't the best fighting fish in the lake, but we all know there are some big ones down there. The 12 lber came from 160 ft down.

No bait, just a few marks on the screen. All the non laker marks were in the 30 - 50 ft range. Ended up going 5 for 5. at the end we resorted to fishing for slimers on the bottom. Forgot the rule that you were allowed one slot lake and ended up throwing back a 12.5 lb'er, 28 inches long. Oh well. Hopefully the Kings come back soon! (add pictures and any other details not captured above here)
  12. LongLine: thanks for the information. We never made it west of the River. Might be worth a look next time.
  13. I think I know the answer to this question, but I'll ask it anyways. Would that be a boat ride to the west or a truck and trailer ride?

Didn't leave the dock until 7:00. Left Ibay and headed north to 100 ft. There were a couple boats trolling in that depth. Did a fast reconicence troll for about 5 min and did not see any signs of bait or fish. Continued out to 150 and there were a few more boats in that depth. Set up here and trolled for 3 hours with only one fish. a ~14 lb king. Screen was blank from bait and only saw a couple fish. We decided to go out and look for Steelies. Picked up and ran out to 500 ft. Found a nice scum line and went 4 for 5 trolling in and out of that. 3 steelies and 1 shaker king. Anybody seeing any bait? We never saw a pod all day!
