  1. Thanks a lot for the input guys, I really appreciate and respect it. Having 3 young children at home, I do not get to pick my days or how frequently I can get out. I always try to make the best of it when I can get out. It sounds like I will be better off sticking close to home and we'll go drift the lower river with my boat.
  2. Hi everyone I want to hit either Cayuga or Canandaigua to try for perch this weekend. I see 14 mile per hour West wind on Saturday in 11 mile per hour southwind on Sunday. Curious what that 11 mile per south wind will mean for the northern tip of Canandaigua or cayuga will it mess the lake up bad or is 11 mile per hour South wind tolerable thank you
  3. Needs to be 12v. Anything 36# of thrust or less and the most I am willing to pay for used is $50, since I can buy new for $100 and have a warranty against it. Anything 45-55# and we can discuss price based on condition, model, and what you are looking to get. PM me if you have anything. Thanks,
  4. Thanks for the replies. I saw the Fat AZ this weekend at Hogan's. BR, if not 60 then what would you recommend?
  5. Hi all, I grew up fishing for Salmon and Trout in Ontario and streams, Walleye in Erie, Calicos and Walleye in Chautauqua since I was 2 and bought my first boat a couple of years ago, Something I have really wanted to get into is Musky fishing, given the world class fishery we have here. I have been able to find plenty of information on trolling, especially for Chautauqua and have outfitted myself with needed trolling gear and lures. I am very interested in casting too though. Hoping that people might be able to share some pointers on that front. I would like to catch some casting in Chautauqua. I am not looking to be spoon fed, but not interested in completely wasting time and especially money. Happy for people to PM me if not interested in sharing with the general public. If left to my own devices I would likely target Bell Tower, Dewittville, Maple Springs, Mayville Flats looking for weed edges and suspended vegetation. I have looked at what is out there for casting for Musky and there are quite a lot of options. Any suggestions on what to look at for casting in Chautauqua? Gear: 2 - 8' Mojo Musky Heavy power trolling rods with Daiwa 57LC, loaded with 10 colors of 45# Mason Leadcore 8' St Croix Premier Heavy / Moderate, with 400 Tranx and 60# Braid 8'6" St Croix Premier Med - Heavy / Fast , with 413 concept A3 and 60# Braid Tools: Beckman net w large hoop and deep net Hook Cutter Long needle nose Hook sharpener Bump Board Thanks in Advance.
  6. Sold this about a year ago. Can't figure out how to mark it as sold.
  7. If you cut the shaft you can splice the wires to lengthen them. Then you can remove the handle and mount the control head near you. Bow mount trolling motors are MUCH heavier than stern mount and not a good option for a kayak due to weight. The battery alone will already be weighing you down quite a bit. Regardless if you chose to bow mount or stern this setup will save a lot of weight. Just make sure the trolling motor you choose has infinitely variable speed if you want to troll. And oh you take care of steering with a coated cable and eye bolts. Attaching a few pics of my old rig for ideas.
  8. I don't know what I would use a rigger for. If and when I want to be able to troll deep water I will buy a bigger lake boat. For now I have young kids and have limited time to get out on the water. I plan on my primary focus being walleye, perch and calico. I also intend to do some musky fishing.
  9. I imagine you could put a battery in the compartment in front of the livewell. I had my Rebel XL wired for 24V. The factory battery compartment only has room for 1 battery. The second battery was mounted in the storage compartment in front of it. I attached the factory picture of mine here. You can see there is only one battery, but there is a path to run a cord to the compartment in front of it. I would guess your boat will have something similiar.
  10. Does anyone use down temp or speed for walleye fishing other than in Erie? I am curious now. I am thinking they could be variables that have potential to really improve catch rate. How temp sensitive are walleye?
  11. I have this same boat in the tiller model. I have to say I have been beyond impressed with how it handles big water. I can go 20 MPH in 3 foot waves without feeling unsafe or uncomfortable, I just need my rain gear, lol. The boat trolls great and tracks well too. This model had the double plated bow that Lund is known for. I can only imagine that with the full windshield this boat is trolling machine out on Erie and on Ontario as well with a good forecast.
  12. I would live to have it, but that would mean adding downriggers too which I was not planning on. I am looking to buy a large lake boat as well in about 5 years or so. I would use that for any deep water trolling. Do you guys feel it is a game changer for walleye trolling on inland lakes? I know down speed and temp is crucial for salmon trolling, but is that maybe just a actor that the great lakes have such a drastic difference in the currents down deep vs surface?
  13. I don't have a Tyee, but I have a 2020 16' Rebel XL and I can fit 3 batteries up front. I have a tiller, my TM is a 60" shaft and if there was a windshield it wouldn't be an issue. I think the TM won't ever hit the windshield regardless of length due to the mounting angle.
  14. Hi All, I bought a 16' Lund Rebel Tiller this year. I have been fishing the great lakes and WNY fishing since a very young age and have a good idea of how I want to rig it. Nothing speaks for experience though and I plan to change some of my focus on how I grew up fishing. Mainly I would like to fish inland lakes. Fishing by Priority: Inland walleye (Chautauqua and Finger Lakes) Inland Crappie and Perch Fishing (Chautauqua and Finger Lakes) Lower Niagara River Trout, Salmon, and Bass Spring Brown Trout an Coho (Ontario) Chautauqua Lake Musky Existing Gear: 9" Humminbird G3N DI Mega+ 80# 60" Ulterra 2 cisco 90 degree lund mounts w down east salty rod holder Planned Gear: 2 - 48" Cisco mounting brackets 2 cisco rod trees with 3 holders 2 cisco single tube rod holders 2 DOWN EAST SALTY BOLT-ON ROD HOLDER MOUNT 1 Humminbird G4N SI Mega+ 1 Minn Kota Traxxis 80# (considering for boat control drifting lower river) Thoughts? Overboard, suggestions, anything I am missing? Thanks
  15. Thanks Frogger. This is what I am doing and already knew about. Wanted to see if there is anything additional others are doing. I never thought of letting the "lake temp bring the impeller temp up", but it makes sense to let it sit for a minute before putting it in gear. I do however do this indirectly, since I always give it extra time for the engine to warm up before putting it in gear.
