    Good luck! I'm running a Yamaha 150 and it has been great. While it hurts now you'll feel better in the long run. I'm sure the Lund you have is a champ. Great boats and the older ones were the better ones from what I understand! It just needs a trustworthy motor to push.

    If its not reliable I don't want anything to do with it on Lake O. A new motor or new-er good running motor otherwise you are just going to be someone else's problem when you expect a tow. a 20 year old known to be problematic motor with issues that can't be solved and mechanics that won't touch it!?. I can't run fast enough. On this lake, better to have a small reliable boat with small HP than a large POS with a bigger HP POS.

    2019 LOTSA Salmon School

    I went to this last year after seeing the post here in the open lake discussion area. I came from NJ which was a bit of drive but think the seminar and show were worth it and am going back again. I'm just posting @Instigator original post below to float it back to the top in this category since I thought it was worth it and ran across it here last year about now.

    Great fishing?

    I ran last year in a 17.5 and half the time running solo and caught plenty of fish. As mentioned you just have to pick your days Sent from my Pixel 2 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Shorelander trailer brakes

    how long did you get on them before needing to do the work you did? Guess I'm just asking if they were original. Also, what was your sign that it was time to deal with them? I just bought a boat with a new dual axel shoreland'r only has brakes on the rear axle. Trailer brakes are new for me so I took notice of your post and the paint thing (I'm going to look at what the rotors look like later today). While I have time I know maintenance is coming eventually. I wish I didn't have to deal with them but stopping is pretty important to me so....

    Another 20% CUT in Chinook Stocking for 2019

    I fish the river and lake and i can say that 2012 (if i remember the year right) was fascinating with the clipped salmon and what we saw when on clipped vs non clipped. I hav wished every year since that they kept that up. What showed up when wasnt any kind of 50/50 40/60 even 30/70 mix....it was stark contrast. Id love to gage volume of each year to year.

  11. Im endlessly entertained by random comments of nothingness. Right. Upstate ny would crumble without NYC and Westchester. Sure, i know this as fact because i saw them constructing the cash pipeline last week. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    for me....asking myself the same questions you are. Not enough. If I had a large glass boat that I was putting a through hull on 10 feet up from the transom perhaps I'd think differently.

    I just bought an hds 9 carbon with total scan transducer for 1699 as they are clearing them out. I wanted to go airmar but saw just enough online commentary expressing difficulty to make me decide to go with the total scan and dip a toe i to the airmar at another time.

    Mexico PT Spring Brown Trout

    Generally no 10' to 2' scenarios, but water level, size and draft depth of your boat and how close you are going to grind yourself along the shore will make this a tougher question to answer. I can generally say there are two areas to consider. 1) to the right of the boat launch inlet (when going out). There are pin bouys there (usually) marking high rocks....how high I'm not sure....I avoid them (haha). Also, I understand Catfish creek (if you use that inlet) is funky and has some sudden shallow stuff right in by the mouth. I don't use that place so I can't say fully. otherwise you are fine. As good practice, if you are going to be right along the beach don't run on plane. You can easily move just a little offshore and run at speed there going to-from Mexico point.
