    My first year with HDS Carbon 9 is wrapping up . I went with an Airmar TM150 transducer reccomended for the kind of fishing i do. Open water trolling in 50-450 fow on L.Erie and L.Ontario. Was told don't waste money on SI and DI . Overall very happy!! Abit of a learning curve for old guy like me. Was on phone a few times with there techs. I can almost play it like a fiddle now. I've had Lowrance on my boats for about 30 years and unlike many I've been very happy. There a leader in Marine technology just look at what the fishing pros have on there boats. JMHO.
  2. I'm an oldtimer out there alot. The second thing I always do after starting main motor is to turn on my VHF radio. I have favorite channels but I know coast guard is always there waiting for your call on #16. Cell phones are not 100% dependable on the open lake!! Would not go out on the open Lake with out a reliable VHF and 8ft antenna. I was rescued by Coast Guard once years ago and learned this lesson. Just MHO.

    Tr1 gold help

    you gotta get on phone and ON THE WATER with a tech person from garmin. I would reccomend a 9:00am phone call or what ever time they open in time zone there in. Sounds like you need to be reprogrammed and recalibrated. Need a location with smooth water.

    Kicker Auto pilot

    Love my TR-1 gold !!! Have had it on 2 different boats.My most important piece off trolling equipment. Calumet Marine is where I bought last one. They walked me thru the install over the phone, Theres some on water programmig too. Ask for Frank, he'nos the owner. No NYS sales tax helps.
  5. I have loved this FF/Chartplotter!! Pullled trigger on new HDS Carbon this spring. Comes with 2 transducers:a HST-WSBL 200KHZ 20 degree and a brand new Airmar P-66 dual 50khz/200khz still in the box.The P-66 is supposed to be the best ducer for this unit. Bought it and never found time install. My Penn Yan is a hard top. HDS was mounted to ceiling of hard top. HDS 10 never exposed to Sun or Water. Asking $600.You can PM me. I will post pics when I figure out how to do it. I live in the Buffalo/Niagara area.
  6. Its great that you got your kid out but shouldn't they be wearing PFDs??

    I'm on my second boat with a TR-1 auto pilot. Probably the second my important piece of equipment on the boat that helps us catch fish. My Fishhawk would be # 1 . Love my TR-1 !!!

    Modified Inline Planer Boards

    Don't do it! I did the mods on 6 walleye boards. They ran worse. Called Church and talked about it, they knew all about blood run video. Church does not recommend the mods on that video.Ended up buying 6 new arms to replace the ones I bent up with the lighter. MHO.

    Fort Niagara Launch

    We launched at Ft.Niagara on Monday. Fioating docks are in on the left side of the south launch. Floating docks in on right side of north launch. They got alot of floating dock to still install. Eventually floating dock will connect south and north ramps. Its functional now, will be real nice when 100% done .
  11. Drove across Grand Island bridges couple times today. Been lots of ice in Niagara river for about 10 days. Today there is no ice!! I really think thats it! Now if we could just get rid of this white stuff on the ground!!

    Fort Niagara Boat Launch Project ???

    Hey Gary do you keep your boat on the Catt on Erie in summer?? Think we talked on phone last summer about set-up problems with your TR-1 AP. If your the same Gary hope all is going well!

    Fort Niagara Boat Launch Project ???

    Also want say I’ve been launching at Ft N. for over 30 years. Right now water level IMHO looks close to normal. I was at Olcott harbor Saturday and looked fairly normal there too. Spring 2017 was a very abnormal event. I’m optimistic this years water levels will not affect boat launching to much and the fishing is gonna be fantastic!!
