  1. Usually if you ask on the vhf you can get that info from someone.
  2. Andy, there is nothing on those riggers you can't do. I'm sure you are mechanically inclined enough. At the most, you need to turn a few screws, the board has plug connections. Fish 307 has all the parts you need.
  3. Oswego Sub Shop Dino's House of Burgers (new but I hear its good)
  4. I had the Wanderfin on my 22' Penn Yan when I owned it. It definitely helped. However...it cracked the horizontal fin it mounts to. It cracked just the fin, not into the drive case. Maybe it was my fault or not from drilling the holes for mounting. Slightly mis-aligned holes and it was torqueing maybe.
  5. LED Navigation lights Does anyone have a suggestion for where to order a sealed LED combination masthead light? It appears the Attwood model just has LED bulbs in a normal fixture. My other fixtures are sealed LEDs and I would like to stick with that. If I have to continue wiggling bulbs, going to LED doesn't make sense. Thanks for the suggestions. Andy
  6. A new spool of wire is cheaper than the diver, flasher and fly or meat rig you could possibly lose...just replace it...
  7. Wait, you said mixed bag... Oswego, kings (mixed ages, matures too) by July, browns readily available in 50-90FOW and 2 year olds and steelies offshore. Quick trip to deep water. There is more than enough opportunity for consistent fishing if you are flexible. Does it need to be the same routine day after day to be consistent? For example, I have been offshore in 650FOW catching steelies, salmon, and suspended lakers on an afternoon charter, then in 15-20FOW the next morning catching quality browns. Wind played a factor in the decision of where to go when; but opportunity was there. Most times, our good lakers have passed through by July but are within a 45 minute run... As far as Oswego itself, More than enough places to stay from $40 to $180 a night within 10 minutes of the launch or your charter. If towing, Wright's Landing is one of the better launches on the lake and is currently one of the few open in this high water. If hiring a charter, the East and West side marinas offer decent parking, nearby bathrooms, and fish cleaning is available per fish if your Captain/Mate doesn't include it already. Meals, there are several places to eat from pub fare to family owned restaurants to chains. Hope this helps and good luck!
  8. That won't be an issue when the body cracks at the base and it falls overboard... I know of 3 STX riggers on my dock that have broke off, one caught by the cord, one by the rod in the holder, and the other is in 140 off 4 mile point I think. I would start using a separate holder for your rod. Check the emblem on top, WHEN it cracks and the rigger fills with water, they won't warranty it because it isn't covered with their soft cover. At least that was their response to a boat on my dock a week or so ago. I currently run 4 HS and 1 STX. The next riggers I buy will be Scotty's. Good luck! Andy
  9. Had some on wires today, not bad at all yet.
  10. And the bridges closer to Greece are low clearance. 11 feet and change was the lowest I noticed. I think a couple were 12'2" also.
  11. for sale : usa

    The reels are in good shape. Clickers are weak though.
  12. for sale : usa

    Yes they are.
  13. Sold / Closed

    Those you need to pull the knob to be able to lift. You just can't grab and lift. I have the same ones and once they are tipped down for the dipsy, they stay there. I don't tip them up to get a rod out.
  14. What units is this compatible with? Never mind, I looked on the Navionics website and it isn't compatible with a HB 788.
