  1. I have to say I believe shark weights do attract fish.......sometimes. Have had many times on the graph a fish streak from below to the same height as my rigger weight when there was no presentation on that rigger. Not sure its actually from the facets or the reasons claimed by Shark. Could just be curiosity of aggressive fish.
  2. The brackets are nice but limit your ability to move & position the riggers where you want them. For us Lake O guys who fish with many poles & presentations a track system is a much better option. IMO The Michigan Hewes dealer orders all his boats with the brackets deleted for this reason.
  3. The problem is they are only going to schedule a pick up when then dealer has a load of new boats arriving so they can load it on the truck as its heading back to Indiana. Some smaller dealers only get a couple deliveries a year. Maybe see if there is a larger dealer within a reasonable driving distance and pick up can be arranged there at a sooner date. You should contact the Manufacture directly. They should be able to arrange pick up at any Starweld, Starcraft, Smokercraft our Sylvan dealer as they fall under the Smokercraft umbrella. Here are a couple of contacts at the manufacture. [email protected] Warranty repair supervisor [email protected] Customer service rep
  4. I would agree you are maxed out for sure. Especially when you consider batteries, gear etc
  5. 2 Go Pro Cameras. Both Hero 3+ 1 Silver 1 Black. Tons of extras. Many extra batteries, mounts, rear screen, water proof covers, carry case etc Used 4 times. All items pictured included. $165 includes shipping to US address. PayPal accepted. Message here or text 518-366-4663 Thank you for looking
  6. Based on the weight I would say its hull only. If you look at the brochure on the boat with an inboard motor they specify "(includes motor") This is not so on the boats with outboards. So when figuring the total weight compared to the trailer capacity I would add for motor, fuel, gear, batteries etc etc. When looking at trailer tire capacity you need to also calculate the weight of the trailer in too.
  7. Autotether. New Never used. Purchased two of these. One for each boat but as it turns out I am selling one of the boats as we are just not using it.

  8. Wouldn't that be something, catch the Salmon on the parasite that preys on them. Not sure about others but we did not see as many Lamprey this year. That one was a big one though.
  9. Fish and boats everywhere! Fished Saturday PM, Sunday AM, Mon PM Saturday PM We had a case of the dropsies only going 3 for 8. Wannabe paddle w/Musslehead Meat Rig continuing to take shots along with Valium Pro-troll paddle w/stud fly. Fished 100-140 or so with 110-120 being the best. Highlight was a Nice Coho! Sunday AM Headed out to the same area well before sun up for the early bite and to beat the cluster at the ramp. Had our full spread out before the sun came up but didn't take our first shot until about 7:30 A chaotic morning to say the least. Some combat trolling, couple bad tangles and a planer line issue all while taking 3 quick shots. Took a little while for us to dial them. All meat hits except for one flasher fly bite. Wannabe paddle w/meat was good for one fish. All other hits came on a 11" Pro-Troll Green Hornet paddle w/Atommik meat rig fished right off the bottom in 100-120' Jigging the trolling motor triggered most of the bottom strikes. No monsters, 20lb about the biggest but ended up with a nice box. Finished up about noon. Monday PM Went out after the rain quit. Back to the same area. Swells started to kick so we kept it on a east troll with the waves at our back. Ended up 3/3 in about 3 hours with one at 23 pounds. Chartreuse was what worked today. Jilly Billy Paddle with meat took two on a deep rigger and Kryptonite paddle w/fly on 300' copper took one. Decided to pull lines and had back as the swells continued to grow and we had an 11 mile run back to the harbor.
