  1. My prayers go out to you & your family. Wish you & yours the best.
  2. Thanks for the report. I hear you though. No one likes getting skunked. No matter if you're on the water for a couple of hours or all day. Sounds like you had a good trip otherwise. Lake O is certainly different than Erie! Hard to believe they're so different even though they're so close in proximity. Gotta love it though. Give us a real diversified fishery...close to home! B Safe!
  3. I'm not sure. That's why I wanted to ask. Last thing I want to do is get in trouble & lose my fishing privileges. I know the folks on this site who fish Lake O more than I do will no better than me. Been fishing it a long time, but only 1 or 2 trips a year & the regulations change all the time. Better safe than sorry. B safe!
  4. I thought the rule of 1 per day was for the tributaries? The regulation is a little vague. But like JTowne stated. I don't want to break any laws. That can really ruin a fishing trip. I copied & pasted this from the NY Fishing Digest online book. Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout (including Steelhead), Coho Salmon, Chinook Salmon All year 15″, except 21″ for Rainbow Trout or Steelhead 3 in any combination, not to include more than 1 Rainbow Trout (or Steelhead) in the tributaries
  5. Thanks for the report. Wow. One mishap after another. Glad you got to fish...& catch some fish. Hope all the boat issues get worked out & you light them up again next time. B safe & good luck!
  6. Thanks Rtrucking! I did go thru the handle & basically word for word did what you had said. Got the parts & it works great now! I really appreciate your help. Now I know since you replied with the same information to what I did at least I know I did it correctly. Thanks! Good luck the rest of the year! B Safe!
  7. ERABBIT, Thanks! I will give that a try as well. Going to tear it down & see whats going on with it. I want to thank everyone who posted with ideas. Really appreciate all the help!
  8. Just reading thru the thread & see you're getting married. Best of luck to you! Wish you & your lady all the best!
  9. Thank you Sk8man. I'll look them up in case I need to & get their #. Thanks again.
  10. Thanks Jigstick. I will tear it a part & see what's happening. I just thought I would ask before I tried to tear the rigger down & find out you need a special tool or can't put it back together correctly without factory assistance. Thanks again. B Safe!
  11. cannon rigger issue I have a Cannon rigger that is having, I think a clutch issue. The unit is a manual crank Cannon Uni-troll 10. Upon lowering the rig into the water the spool will grab & stop the ball from lowering. If I crank it counter-clockwise a bit it will start to lower again. But then it will stop again. This will happen till I have the ball to the correct depth. Any ideas? Is there a viable service center other than Cannon I can send the unit to be repaired? Or do you think I can repair it myself? Any help would be welcome & appreciated. Be safe!
  12. We had a "gnat" (just for 1 year, in 1 or 2 counties)that hung around water holes & was biting the deer transmitting a disease called Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease(EHD) that would make them thirsty, seek water & die, either in the streams or ponds. It was terrible. Anytime you were around water you would find a dead deer. The woods smelled like death. But it only lasted 1 year. Being that it only lasted 1 year made it seem odd. But that was the official story the Pa. Game Commission was sticking too. But the deer population took a noticeable hit.
  13. That's a tank!! Nice job!
  14. This happened quite a few years ago during the rifle deer season. I was hunting in the evening & watched 2 horned owls "drive" a grey squirrel up a small valley towards me by taking turns flying back & forth across the valley till 1 of the owls snatched the squirrel off the back side of a tree not more than 20 yards away from me. One of the craziest things I seen in the outdoors. If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes I wouldn't believe it.
  15. Nice sausage! Like PAP said, you can't eat the horns. Nice job!
