  1. It is possible to do at low speed, but much more practical to just let out more line and reach the desired depth that way. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. I just did my 1986 with Michigan Motorz and not only is their work very good, but they will do good follow up. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. If you change from balls to torpedoes ( contact troutman) you will see a world of difference. Great tracking and very little blowback compared to balls.
  4. I am sure that, in the eyes of a right wing person most reporting that does not jibe with right wing ideas is perceived as biased. Both BBC and NPR strictly keep news and opinion apart. Opinion and editorial is where bias sneaks in.
  5. There are a few few states, I think Maine is one of them, where a bill of sale is enough proof of ownership. So you can register it in one of those states and then transfer that to New York. Another way to do it is with help/advise from a marina owner. They claim boats when the owner does not pay the slip fee and/or abandons the boat. Marina owners can sell those boats without problems by filling out some paper work.
  6. Thank you, Ill check them out. Can you keep your fish or does the captain take all?
  7. I'm toying with the idea of going fishing for yellow fin tuna out of Ocean City, MD. Does anybody have a charter to recommend?
  8. I Agree. "Ignorance at its best" is what you wrote above.
  9. That is one way. The trick is to make the knots small enough so they can go through the guide on your reel without trouble. mine will go through the convector but not through the magda
  10. I run 2 200 footers and one 300 footer with a thousand foot of 19 strand backing on each and fish down to 90 feet and dependent on speed sometimes more. I just count the 19 strand as if it weighted steel. I use large convectors with line counters. You will have to experiment with the knots that connect between the thicker and thinner wires although the 19 strand acts and feels like mono as far as knotting is concerned. For me the best part is no more copper with all the complications that it causes.
  11. Check the intake that gets the water to the impeller. You may have zebra mussel growing in there.
  12. I have been using the 19 strand as backing with weighted steel in front. The thinness and weight of the 19 strand will allow almost the same sink rate as the weighted steel. That will work for leadcore as well.But the relative thickness and structure of leadcore creates a bit higher water resistance so you will probably not get as good a sink rate per foot compared to weighted steel. Not having to stock a different rod on board for every length of leadcore I might wish to use was the motivation behind using this setup. For me it has to do with with control of the work place which is crucial on a 19 footer.
  13. That’s what most people thought about the Keystone oil pipeline and see what happened yesterday. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. There is a website for the study: www.nyserda.ny.gov/Great-Lakes-Wind-Feasibility-Study public webinars will be held in August and October. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  16. Mine are 10 years old and stainless. the weight is there not only to counter the pull, but also to prevent them from capsizing when there are big waves
  17. I just decided to stay on the Finger Lakes for now and have a successful season . When the kings come, I'll come back to Lake Ontario.
  18. I have double keel otterboats with the second keel only half the weight. A full keel makes the otterboat sink when it lays still in the water. A second keel without weight will give extra pull, but it is less stable and it tends to hang over a bit, specially when the second one is on the outside. You cannot buy half keels in a store. You have to order them from Big Jon.
  19. I understand that you think of our Governor as an almighty ruler whose mighty hand controls the woodland creatures, the fish and the birds. You make it sound like he can with one move from his almighty hand either destroy or create the well being of all living creatures. I hate to break this to you , but he is not really a half god and his powers are far more limited than you believe.
  20. That is just fine. They are grown far away from open water and they only need half the food that ocean grown salmon does. It seems to be fish farming without changing the wild stock or polluting the ocean with antibiotics that traditional fish farming does. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  21. The remote control box that I currently have on this boat is an old Quicksilver Commander2000 that never really fit and always had some sort of trouble. Now after having installed a professionally rebuilt engine and a brand new kicker I want to also have a nice looking remote control box with tilt and trim. I mean the type that has the box behind the trim and just the cover plate and handle showing. Does anybody know what the right box would be? If you do, please tell me. Thank you, Cornelis.
  22. The Luhr-Jensons came out looking new.
  23. Being stuck at home because of family reasons I decided to do the experiment. For now all my Luhr-Jensen flasher/dodgers are being cleaned in the dish washer and next will be the spoons. Did anybody do this and what were the results, specially with the stick-on eyes and/or glue on strips? Thank you for your opinions and shared experiences.
