  1. If it is a "newer" B60, it should be a plug n play transducer. It has a shorter pigtail, universal, then you get the proper cord for your unit. If it doesn't have the pigtail, they have a junction box you can install to adapt to the proper cord.
  2. I tried the 19 strand years ago when it came out. I could not get the knots to tie good. I went back to 7 strand, which ever is cheapest or available when I need it. Lately I've been using Blood Run with no issues.
  3. Can't wait for them to die back. So thick Saturday and today, they were tripping the Scotty's for everyone I talked to, on coppers too. Had to bail and find clearer water. Good thing fish are all over. Nothing will keep them off other than fishing where they aren't.
  4. I beg to differ Rich... I had both today. Still some cotton around.
  5. Fleas got so bad this week, I wouldn't bother with braid now. Atleast out of Oswego. My wires are on 8'6" rollers. Braids are on 9'6" rods. Your diver rods don't need to be angled way down either. Run them how they fit your spread and setup.
  6. How wide are the rod holders from each other? What's the price now?
  7. Watch your fishfinder, don't stop and setup in a desert. If fish are in the top 30' or so you probably won't mark them though. Look for a couple pods of bait and go from there.
  8. If you insist on using rubber bands, thread the clippers on your board line through the hole, then set your rubber band in the slot, not the jaws. The numbers that stick in my head are #32 or #16. Use the bigger one. Keep them out of the sun!
  9. Do you know the model? Where are you located?
  10. I spoke with Chantele Thursday. She said the City has made all the approvals and is now waiting on Scriba Electric to do the work.
  11. Benefits of Oswego... Short trip to deep water. Cleaning station. Wide floating docks. Way less mosquitos. Convenience stores nearby. Food delivery to the docks. Sidewalks, minimal goose droppings. You will save enough gas through the season that a run to the SR or Dunes won't kill you (45 minutes or so). No river to run in the dark. Bathrooms Fuel savings will offset the dock cost.
  12. I'll take it. Where are you located? Call or text me, 3155273652. Andy
  13. Yes, no issues. Good deterent probably. I have one on each display. But, its a boat, if they want it, they can get it with a pry bar.
  14. I was loading the Remington 300gr JHP bullets. They shot very well and killed every deer I've shot with them. But...blood trail was real weak on a few occasions and I decided when I need to buy more bullets, I was going to try something different. By real weak, I mean a drop or 2 of blood in 80 or 90 yards but most of the time I could see them go down or have a good Idea where they are anyways. This could also be my problem too, I usually don't shoot very low on the chest either. But the other half that I've shot drop or make a bound and drop. I'm sure it depends on what bones I hit but it seems that the rib shots tend to run further with much less blood. Looking at reviews, I might try the Barnes or the Silvertips next. Most likely the Silvertips. I love my 1895GS and I'm so glad I bought it before the prices went up $300!
  15. The cannons are supposed to be .540 I think. The black box allows you to tune to different voltage.
  16. Dylan, I have the Marlin in 45-70. Awesome rifle. As far as shooting deer, it doesn't do any more damage than my 12ga, 30-06, or .50 cal. Shoot them in the shoulder and you do damage, through the ribs and you waste less. I handload for it. Lighter bullets, higher power rounds and it shoots about an inch at 100 yds and the recoil is less than my slug gun. The recoil is different than my 06 or slug gun and is more manageable than guys would think. Do a Sims custom fit pad and you will be happy. With just factory loads, it is comparable to a slug. Last I looked, the Marlin would be the better choice if you might handload. I think it was a stronger action than the Henry. There is different pressure tolerances between different actions and ages of rifles. That is why most factory ammo is lower pressure to be acceptable in most good condition rifles.
  17. No short dock as of yesterday, it isn't needed to launch, the main dock is there. They are putting the docks in though.
  18. No changes. You can still launch easily because the main dock stays in all year. Forecast isn't good this coming weekend.
  19. It was sold a couple years ago.
  20. The main dock at the launch is in all winter. The fingers between lanes are not.
  21. No. Chantelle said maybe next week or likely the following. Usually the Green dock (my dock) is in around the 15th to 18th with the rest after that.
