  1. Saw this boat at Fat Nancy's on the trailer last week while on vacation, if I was in the market for a Great Lake Ontario fishing, I'd take a serious look at this one. It's set up sweet too. Don't pass this up for $10k! I don't know the seller, just saying, sweet ride!
  2. Those smaller fish are 2 year old fish. They do take scale samples to verify the age of the fish that they are taking eggs from, they do not age those fish based on size. So their data is pretty accurate. The big question is why are so many fish maturing at age 2, and not age 3? And why is recruitment down? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. I've got a Mission Archery bow that I bought from Phil Race at Indian Mountain Archery before he closed up shop, he was a great guy and a great bow technician too. Now I need to have new strring, cables and silencers, and the bow tuned, and I'm looking for recommandations on where to take it. I live in Bergen, so west side of Rochester is best, but I'd drive to the east side if I needed to. Thanks in advance!!! Chris

  5. Nice fish Pat!!! Looking forward to seeing you guys on the water! Glad things are working with the boat too! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Thanks for the info guys! I'll chew in this for a few days, and go from there. This is also my first inboard, I've had outboards and an I/O before this. It looked like a real clown shown the first time this year pulling out of my slip, and then back in later after fishing. Everybody missed out, my Dad was the only one around to bust my chops about it.
  7. I bought a bigger boat last year, 26' Baha Weekender, single screw. After a lot elbow grease I finally got to fish over the weekend in it, and I'm liking all the space I have. Unfortunately I'm finding with the current trolling bags I have, I don't have great speed control. About the slowest I can troll down to is about 2.3 MPH down speed, and that's at ~750 RPMs. I don't like trolling at a low RPM like that either, I'd like to be able to troll aroun 1000-1100 RPMS. One bag is a 22" diameter, and the other is 30" diameter. I'm thinking of going to either 2 - 36" bags, or 2 - 48" bags. Do you guys have any thoughts on what size??? I was thinking 48", only because that would give me better speed control, and a higher trolling RPM, but I don't want to go over board either and be trolling at like 1800 RPMs. Thanks in advance.
  8. Way to go Brian! Glad you guys had fun out there Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  12. Dale, Between the our new baby girl, and keeping up with snow removal and firewood, I haven't had a lot of time to work on the new boat. I've got everything I need, parts and equipment, just waiting for a break in the weather to get out there and work on it. We'll get there, and have things ready to go brown trout fishing in April. In the mean time I'll take advantage of the forced time inside with my gals, and rest up for another very busy Spring, Summer, and Fall.
  13. Dale, it's deffinitely doable, just a pain in the butt if you have to clear it in a hurry. Knowing your boat and set up, would give you more opportunities. If it does tangle, it can't be as bad as getting copper wrapped up in your dipsy. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. I had a short shaft Honda on my last boat, 21' Sportcraft, but I had it mounted on a Garelick trolling motor mount bolted to the transom. I could raise and lower as needed. Unfortunately a short shaft my not work on a swim platform type of mount. But I could be wrong. Take a tape measure out to the boat, and measure down 16" from where the throat of the mount bracket would be, this will give you an idea where the top of the anti-ventilation plate would end up. You want to try and get the prop below the hull of your boat. It doesn't have to be perfect, but at least close. If it does work out, you may only be able to troll with it on nice days. Even a 2' chop could cause prop cavitation. In those cases I just trolled with the main. Good luck. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
