  1. Any recommendations on where to go to buy a 15hp trolling motor and have it installed on a 26ft boat?
  2. Mexico is the only place we can launch that’s within an hour drive.
  3. It seems like a lot of us have struggled in Mexico bay and others are killing it. I’ll be out in the morning about 6. The boat name is Tranquilo, 25ft center console. Feel free to look for me / call me. There’s plenty of fish to go around. Unless someone has any advice, I’ll be starting around 90 to 110ft headed east/ west fishing a mix of flys and spoons 30 to 70 down. Feel free to let me know what you think of that plan good or bad. I have out of towners on Lake Ontario for the first time so I’d like to land a few to show off our lake. I’ve gotten skunked the last two time out...
  4. Where do you buy them? Anyplace local or only online?
  5. I’ll be out of Mexico Saturday morning I’ve had very little luck in Mexico this year. Flashers, spoons, 30 to 75 down over80 to 130 feet. Mark fish, mark bait but can’t seem to get anything to hit. It’s been frustrating. Think it’s worth it to make the run to Oswego?
  6. So how do you guys figure out what color spoon or flasher/ fly to use? Is it darker colors early in the morning and brighter colors when the sun comes up? What’s the rule of thumb if there is one?
  7. Anyone know if it’s open since Wright’s landing is closed? Headed up in the morning.
  8. Any going out of Oswego tomorrow with a 10mph west wind? Do you guys that fish there a lot think it will be too rough?
  9. I’ll be headed out of Wright’s landing around 5:30am tomorrow. I have limited knowledge of that area. Any advice would be appreciated. Also, if anyone else is going and wouldn’t mind if I followed, let me know. Thanks!
  10. wow, I have no idea what section to post this, but i am a food vendor and i may need some help this weekend at balloon fest in jamesville. I'm posting here because i want LOU members skilled in using an electric fillet knife. You'll be carving smoked whole hams. I'll pay $15 an hour under the table. I'm also hiring for general labor at my stand (serving, cleanup, ect), but this post is specifically for ham carvers. I figured my fellow fishermen could use a few extra $$$. send me a PM if interested.
  11. i have one of those bars that go between the outboard and the trailer to hold the outboard up while towing. i launched my boat and forgot to take it off. well, the boat sliding off the trailer takes care of that!! funny thing is, when i got back from fishing and its time to take the boat out, there is that stupid bar laying on the bottom of the launch ramp. even funnier is that i've done that 4 times now. i guess whoever said to not be in a hurry, especially early in the morning knows what they are talking about. and to all you guys who launch at wrights landing in oswego: if you ever see that thing laying on the bottom of the launch, leave it right there. i'll get it on my way in !
  12. this is the new style from 2008. cannon improved them signifigantly from 07 to 08. i used it all last year, works great but i sold the boat. comes complete, display, probe, wiring. i also have a cannon mag 10. its an older one but it has short stop and positive ion so it can't be that old. i'm going to ebay them in march, but i'll offer it here first. $500 for them both. i'll pay for shipping. i also have 2 nice 12lb weights that were new last year from gander mt. i'll throw them in as well but i'm not shipping those. buyer can pay for that or pick them up. or you can invite me brown fishing in april and i'll bring them with me. PM me if interested.
  13. i was wading on the north shore from 6 to 715. nothing. i think the water is still a little too warm. maybe another week or so.
  14. they aren't all stealing this stuff to sell or re-use. a lot of it is anti hunters. i have noticed a lot of my stuff gets messed with right before opening day.
  15. went out of godfrey point near cleveland. made a few drifts along the dropoff. (20 to 30FOW) did well on perch and picked up 2 eyes on a black jig with a worm. it was pretty rough which makes jigging tough.
  16. i'll be there thursday morning and afternoon. i'll be on 68 if anyone is there.
  17. general motors vehicles 2000 and newer, the lights are automatic and are on when its dark. you can shut them off but most people don't know how. but if you are taking a long time, you can still turn the engine off. that will make them shut off. i almost blinded a guy once who was pulling out his boat. i used the remote to unlock the truck, which turns the lights on, which was pointed right at him and he happened to be looking right at it. a simle "hey man, sorry about that, i forgot that makes the lights turn on. let me turn them off until you're done" usually does the trick.
  18. I've never been to the dock at sandy, but everyone seems to think its a problem. i have know a few DEC officers over the years and they take their jobs very seriously and they are always like to feel needed. i'm sure with a call or two they would stop by during the busy time. i promise you that not every one there is legal. maybe they could just write a littering ticket or 2 to send a message. our tax money and liscense fees pay their salary so if there is a problem, tell them to fix it. i've steered them towards a few oneida lake ice fisherman from time to time and they were grateful and actually made one arrest!
  19. it was my first time fishing owasco for lakers. i did what the locals told me. drove around until i found bait pods then stopped and jigged over the top of them. i even had the same jigs and colors (white) as everyone else. nothing. the other boats around me were catching plenty. i must have been doing something wrong. after 2 hours i got frustrated, put the riggers down and caught 3 on a purple spoon in 30 minutes. dragged the spoon right through the middle of the bait. about 60 ft down. and yes, i did forget to get a new sportmans liscense. oops. will do that today.
  20. thanks ray. not really sure what i'm looking for. we're going for lakers on owasco so i thought i would ask the guy at the bait shop. have you ever fished there?
  21. does anyone know where to buy bait near emerson park in auburn on owasco lake? going there wednesday and sunday for lakers and/or walleyes. any advice?
