  1. Today I read that chapter 70 and the DEC were going to put some stocked tigers in pens instead of directly into the lakes. As I understand it this would give the fish a chance to recover from the stress of transport and hopefully more would survive. Hat’s off to those involved and I hope it works. I witnessed the tiger stocking at Conesus once;disoriented fish were all over the launch and nearby shoreline. Nice job 70 and good luck. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Can we get a fact check ?

    There are northerns that size around. There could be a lot more if the minimum size was raised and the creel limit reduced. The way pike get abused is a real shame. But if we restricted their harvest I guess they would “eat all the good fish “[emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Merc 150s

    Makes sense. Maybe I’ll start turning the motor over every couple weeks in the winter. Sure I will [emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Merc 150s

    Agreed. The impellers I replace look like new. But the first failure messed up a vacation so I play it safe now. And like sk8man only the best oil and gas for me. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Merc 150s

    13 years is pretty good impeller life! Mine failed after the first year. The boat was still under warranty so I took it to the dealership where they nailed me $300 for it because impellers aren’t covered. I was kind of shocked to see the manual said to replace it yearly. Changing it every other year has worked for me though. I can do it in 20 minutes now. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    I have a 2008 merc 150. Mine is a efi,not the opti max. I bought it new. The first year it acted up and they replaced all the coils under warranty. I change the plugs and filters every year and the impeller every other. It has never failed or been in the shop for anything. (I probably just jinxed it) My 18 foot boat can just hit 50mph. I have no numbers but it seems to use a lot of fuel. I use a gallon of 2 stroke oil a year. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    New FF/GPS looking for recommendations

    I have a lowrance and a garmin on my boat. Both are 10 years old,outdated but they work. I’ve been wanting to upgrade for a few years now but when I research it gets too complicated and makes my head ache. There’s too much to choose from so I just get along knowing how deep it is and where the shoals are. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
