  1. My bet is that you were on the north east side near the dragon wall. There is a crazy contour there that we call the stove pipe. Goes almost straight up all the way around with a total distance of maybe 50 feet wide on top. Drops right off all the way around. There are also two hills running north-south up there that you need to watch for. I have a humminbird 800 series which is the newer version of the 917C and I like it. Have used the navionics units on some other boats and they seem to be pretty good. That north end is really tricky, I've lost a spoon or two around there! As a rule of thumb I don't go much farther north than the water pump house, that should help you a little till you learn the lay of the land below the water. Good luck! [ Post made via iPhone ]
  2. I was right here, but needed the boat through September, figured I would wait to list it . Sorry! I hope your right and it doesnt take long, I dont want to have to winterize and store 2 boats!!!

This is an outstanding inland lake or bay boat, with capability to handle moderate weather on the big lake. Dual purpose fishing/family boat, make everybody happy! You could buy a new one for over $80k, or grab this like-new one for $29k or b/o. Pm for more pics or phone number for info. Thanks.
  4. Any interest in a 2002 Grady White Tournament 223? Original Yamaha 225 4 stroke, 290 hours. Nice clean boat in great shape with a nice load rite galvanized tandem axle trailer. Im in a similar position as you, except I already bought the next boat . I wont be able to let the Grady go until the end of the season, so you have plenty of time to work on selling yours.
  5. Water is still very high, 5mph speed limit in effect to protect lake property from damage due to boat wakes. Still plenty of debris around also, so be careful.
  6. First thing I would check is the scroll speed, increase it to maximum. That will cause the fish mark to elongate. Check the sensitivity settings and the cone settings. If you just installed the 'ducer, check to see that it is aiming where it should be too. I dont always get true "hooks" but I do get good solid long marks with my 858c.
  7. Yup, what Ray said. 22" and 6-10' behind the ball, or as long as you can handle with the wire diver.
  8. There's been a lot of weeds and other debris floating around for a couple weeks now due to the storms and run-off. Probably snagged em while trolling, that could explain the low catch rate. Sounds like you are in the right depth range, seems to be a ton of fish in the 50-100 range. First thing I would suggest is to slow down, way down. Try 1.8-2.2 mph. Also dont know what you are running for lures, but flasher/fly on the lower rigger and diver rods is good (any kind of green has been hot). Upper rigger or sliders try suttons in size 22, 41, 31, or nk28 green/black. Keep an eye out, there are still some large logs and branches around......
  9. Things were slower today, as expected I guess. Lines didnt even touch liquid until almost 7:30, with a steady North wind blowing and me looking for logs etc from the storms. We went 5 for 9 today, 4 lakers and a smallmouth. Fish were not where they were yesterday, moved in shallower following the bait. The same e-chip and fly took 3 of the 4 lakers on the rigger set at 80', the other came on a dark green/black dreamweaver spoon down 4 colors. Had 3 kids on board, 12, 10 and 8 years old so they were reeling with the rods in the holders not much you can do about that! Earlier start tomorrow, will be on the lake by 5:30 hopefully. Will post results if I get a chance before heading to Sodus for the weekend.
  10. Pretty good day today, nice temps, good company, good fish too going 9 for 13. First lines in at about 6:00, had 3 lakers and a short 'bow in the boat by 7:00 working the North end between German Bros and Tichenor point. Picked up 4 more lakers, another good rainbow and a pickerel before we packed up at 10:00. Yes, I did say a pickerel. He hit on the seth green rig, 2 colors out and second leader down over 180' of water! That was a first for me, and Ive been doing this for better than 20 years. Fleas were real light today which was a bonus. Everything green was good today, light green e-chip and chartreuse/white fly, dark green/black spinny with green/yellow fly off the 175' wire and rigger down 80. Silver/green/white stinger took both rainbows, Sutton 35 bouncing bottom in 110' got the last two lakers. Back at it tomorrow, but a later start in the morning combined with the bad storms today will make it a little tougher going.
  11. A little better fishing today, early bite seems best. Lines in the water at 6:15, first rod to go was the wire out 225, mtn dew spinny and white/purple fly brought a 3lb laker to the boat. Downrigger went next, 140 down with chartreuse paddle and green/yellow fly. Thermocline rig down 5 colors took the next three, 2 smallish lakers and a 15" 'bow on the top leader. Sutton 35 took 2 and a green/white stinger took the bow. Ended up 7 for 8 and was off the lake by 10. Fished all deep water today, 140-190', not a lot of bait around but the deep fish were active finally.
  12. I fished the North end on Friday and Saturday, best action was early. Still bait balls around but not a lot of fish marks. The fleas were really getting bad though. Any line in the water longer than about 20 minutes was covered with them. Several times we had to stop reeling to clear the fleas as they were coming up in 15-20 inch strings. Takes the fun right out of it.....I'll still try it again tomorrow though
