  1. I just updated the listing, everything shown above is still available, except for the Big Jon Rod holders.
  2. In the cases of Lakes Michigan and Huron where there was a cash, their salmon showed signs of stress with poor body condition. This is not the case for Lake Ontario, body condition of our fish has been good and steady, that is the weight of a 36" fish. I'm confident that we have a good forage basin. Our lake is hard to compare to Michigan and Huron with it being the last and lowest Great Lake. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Life Jackets and big Jon rod holders are gone. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. 2 Vector rod holders, fully adjustable, 360* horizontal rotation, and 180* vertical. $100 2 Big Jon heavy duty rod holders, with mounting bases. GONE! 2 Walker Downrigger swivel bases, these have 8 positions, in good condition, and work excellent. $115/pair. 2 Proos Downrigger swivel bases, in good condition, 4 positions, $100/pair. 1 Proos Downrigger dual rod holder, in good condition, $50.
  5. DOH!!!! I just ordered 3 of these last week.
  6. I also have two in my basement that I just took off the boat I bought this fall. Keep posted incase Slimy Hooks can't find his.
  7. Boat is winterized, tucked away in the barn, and ready for the 2015 fishing season. It can easily be seen if you're interested in checking it out, and can stay for the winter for free if purchased. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Boat is getting winterized this weekend, if you're interested and want to hear it run, this is it until spring. If you buy it now I'll give you free winter storage in my barn until April. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. She's not perfect, but the boat is solid, and catches fish. Easily pulled with a half ton pick up, and if your looking to make a little bit of a step up from a smaller aluminum boat this is a great boat to do that with. price, $3500 Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Yup! Me too. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Floors are solid, there isn't any transom or stringers issues with the boat. It's never been kept in the water, not even with the previous owner. I've had it 7 years, and have always kept it in the barn, with the plug out, all year when it's not in the water fishing. It does have some dock scars, which have been fixed, but need paint or gelcoat. And yes, I did about 15 charters on it a season over the last 3 seasons. I would've used it next season too, but I found the right boat at the right price, and this one has to go. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. 1985 Sportcrft 210 Fisherman 21' long, 7.5' wide, dry weight is approximately 3,500lbs Powered by a 170 horse power, 3.7L 4 cylinder mercruiser with 806 hours. She cruises at about 22mph at 3,300-3,400 rpm. The boat is equipped with dual batteries and a multi position battery switch. Large cabin area for a boat its size with a sink, built in cooler, and porta potty. Included with the boat is a single axle, galvanized, roller bunk trailer, with a 2 stage winch. This boat is very easy to put on and off the trailer. She is coming ready to fish with 3 electric Proos down riggers, 6 Tite Lock rod holders, cannon planer reels, VHF radio, and a Hummingbird 596HD sonar/fish finder. Included in the equipment but not on the boat is a spare electric Proos down rigger, and a Sitex Neptune GPS. The boat is setup with a trolling motor bracket, and EZ steer system to accommodate a 10 horse power outboard kicker. It's not the prettiest boat in the harbor, but she's solid, and has been kept in the barn whenever I'm not fishing in it. It is very comfortable to fish with 4 people on board, and can troll in a 3 foot sea without beating you up. The only reason I'm selling it is because I've grown out of this boat, and have already moved up to a bigger one. PM me with any questions you may have. The boat is still not winterized, and if you're serious about buying it, we can splash it and seatrial it. Now asking $3500.
  13. Very good point Scott. That will be interesting data to look at. I'm sure the alewives took a helluva a hit last winter, but it's just hard to swallow their data sometimes after seeing what we saw this year. Now... back to the treestand!!
  14. King Davy, thanks for posting this summary of the meeting. I attended Tuesday night and had some after thoughts concerning the bait fish abundance. I wish I had thought of this while at the meeting. I don't think Steve is trying to misrepresent what they are finding in the lake, nor do I think that those of us on our side of the table are wrong in what we've seen this year on the lake with the alewive abundance. I know Steve made the statement that their data collection process was auditted and found to be a sound scientific method, but that audit was conducted in the 2000's, long after Lake Ontario water was cleared up by filter feeding zebra and quagga muscles. I was out and about in the world in the 1990s with the U.S. Navy, and only fished the lake in the early 90s before the muscles took a strong hold in the lake. We all remember what the water clearity was like in the 1980s and early 90s, if you could call it clear, and was really surprised how clear the lake was when I started fishing it again in 2000. Here's my point on the water clearity. Many of the older guys remember a my uncle Tom Jolliff, DEC biologist at the Cape Vincent research station, and know he was a thorn in the DEC's side since the stocking cut backs in the early 90s, a biologist who was always on the fisherman's side. A salvage diver that he knew in the eastern basin region commented to Tom once about water clearity, and that they had to use lights on dives deeper than 60-70 feet, and now they don't use lights until they get down to 200 feet. Tom thought about that concept, and how clearer water may actually make the lake trawls less affective, becuase the alewives are able to see the trawl nets coming, and simply avoid the nets, making the data bias to lower than actual alewive abundance. I'm not sure if he ever wrote a paper on the subject, or had data to show that night time trawls could be more affected, but he strongly felt that their data is bias becuase the fish are just able to evade the net. When he suggested that they experiment with night trawls they pretty much told him the same thing we were told the other night, they there data collection is a sound scientific method. If you look the alewive abendance chart that was presented at the meeting, it's the same chart that is presented at every state of the lake meeting, you can see a gradual downward trend throughout the 1990s as the lake was becoming clearer, as more and more muscles colonized the lake. I'm sure there was drop in alewive abundance to do less food being available in the bottom of the food chain, but I'm sure Tom was on to something with this theory of net evasion also, and it's a theory that could explain the disparities in what the biologist data suggests and what us fisherman are actually seeing in the lake. Unfortunately this did not pop in my head until I was driving home late Tuesday night and digesting all that was discussed. Perhaps this question or theory could be pushed towards the biologist from a groupl of fisherman, like LOU, or groupl of captains, like the Genesee Charter Boat Assoc, and put some pressure on these guys to think outside the box on this, but likely won't happen. Again, thanks to Jerry and Sam for putting that together the other night.
  15. Good going guys!!! I'm glad you got a board fish, Bob, you've deffinately put in your time, and took enough punishment from me over the last couple of seasons. lol
  16. I had heard you were looking at a new ride, and a nice one at that! Looking forward to seeing it out of Sandy soon.
  17. Ray, any idea how old the unit is? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  19. Paul, Just saw this post. My Dad made these releases. Unfortunately he's not making them anymore, but he may have some left. I think he may also have some replacement rubber pads for them too. I've replaced the pads on a lot of my releases over the years. If you don't have any luck at B&E, email Bill Jolliff at [email protected]. He might be able to help you out. Chris
