  1. Put that new carb on there now and close the adjusting screw all the way but not tight. You may have to pull the knob that is on the needle off in order to close it all the way. Then just open it up one and a quarter turn and put the knob back on with the pointer in the up position. Start the engine and screw the knob back in a bit . You will probably hear the RPMs go up. Screw in until it reaches the highest rpm and then turn it back out a quarter turn. That's all there is to it.
  2. Although I sincerely dislike Trump, I honestly believe that this Trump boat parade announcement is not intended as a political post, but as safety announcement. The parade itself is of course political, But I do not see anything here on this thread that is a pro or anti Trump announcement. Thanks for posting.

  6. Rebuilding an Islander is like investing in a marriage. The more you invest, the better it gets. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. They stopped stocking walleye because the rainbow and brown trout population went down drastically as a result of the walleye stocking. whether is was food competition or the trout becoming the food, I don't remember. I do know that both the rainbows and the browns have made a comeback after the walleye stocking was stopped, but it took a long time.
  8. Congrats. I am hoping to catch a small one in Owasco lake. They stopped stocking them in the lake in 2006. That is why almost all the walleye you catch are big. I am hoping to catch a small one cause that would be natural reproduction.
  9. Old single strand monel wire is nasty stuff. It should be replaced by either seven strand or Dacron. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  11. I wish you guys all the best fishing for the LOC. As for me, my engine has developed a strange knocking sound, which helped me decide that my fishing season is over and the season of pulling the engine and putting it on an engine stand has started. It is a good thing that I enjoy puttering.
  12. You can order keels with only half the weight from Big Jon. One and a half weight stays afloat. I don't think that Fat Nancy sells the half weights.
  13. X2 Besides, you were 2 over stressed bolts away from loosing both bracket and kicker to the water gods or the side of the road. When you put another bracket on, don’t use those two left over bolts again. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. You don’t have to worry about 20 feet. The air pressure difference is only about 9 psi which is well within their tolerance range. Salmon do not really suffer from pressure differences, their problem is exhaustion and having been out of the water which is like strangling to them in addition to being weightless in the water and all of a sudden weighing 30 pounds out of the water.

  15. You can also call it a herring bone pattern. Yes they are dream weavers. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  16. I did just that yesterday morning. Using black super slims with silver ladder fifty feet down over 120 feet at 2.2 at the ball. It yielded 2 29 inch eyes within 30 minutes. If you know Owasco Lake well, it is a great place for large fish. Having caught these 2 seven plus pound beauties I left the area where they hang out and went over to where I like to get some rainbows. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  18. This is a shot in the dark, but if I were to go fish out of Mexico today, I would go to the northern dunes and west from there. The bottom at 140 feet is sandy and it gently slopes down toward the west. With the north eastern winds pushing the warm water on the surface westward there will be a current bringing colder water that will push the thermocline up a bit and the water of the salmon river in the warmer layer will mix with this colder current. The salmon that is starting to stage will be transported eastward by this colder water current and they will feed on the edge of these colliding temperature areas. So look for green water on top and a thermocline that is moving higher. Good luck
  19. I use torpedo wire and have not had even one break off in the five years that this wire has been on my dipsy reels. I do however set my drags not as tight as some people like to do.
  20. Thanks for the report, The eastern winds probably did not help any either. I had planned a trip way out for today, but canned it because of this wind. Your report makes it feel like the right decision.
  21. There is Mayer’s Marina at the outlet of Irondequoit Bay in Webster. Old Bill probably has a dozen of them brand new old stock in one of his cabinets. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  22. What size boat will it fit? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  23. You probably want to do a reverse flush and remove the thermostat to make sure that no pieces of rubber clog the cooling system .
  24. What will you haul it with? That thing sounds very heavy. Does the trailer have brakes? 99% percent of the time the cops will not bother you, but you should check the gross vehicle weight of your tow vehicle and double check how much weight you are allowed to haul.Not so much because of legality but more because of road safety. It's not so much about how strong your engine is. It's about how well you can brake.
