  1. Why would anyone want to buy "crappie" lures ???
  2. Find a thread in the classifieds for duo lock fixed cheaters from Greg (Troubles). They are inexpensive and work great. Greg is also a pleasure to deal with. Caught bunches of fish this year on these fixed cheaters.
  3. SK8MAN.... I don't know why your head doesn't explode, storing all this Finger Lake and Lake O knowledge. You are truly a wealth of knowledge, and someone I always look to for info. Thanx for all you do !!!
  4. John, I'm interested in the reasoning of filling the reel backwards..... Would it be to see if the lengths of line would fit ??? Thanx
  5. Was stopped twice last weekend coming out of Sodus Point. On the way out, the sheriff stopped me cause there is a no wake, and 5 mph within 1000 feet of land. Seems like I was not quite 1000 ft from one shore. I wasn't on plane, only doing about 8 MPH. Not being a hunter I have trouble estimating distances. They were very courteous, and explained the damage being done to the properties around the bay, and gave me a warning. The same trip, on the way back in I thought I was well within the letter of the law, while doing 5 MPH, and the USCG blue lights appeared. They stated that even though they agreed that I was only doing 5 MPH my single engine 24 footer was still causing a wake. Again, they ere friendly, courteous and were only there to issue info. The sheriff explains that there is only a very narrow strip where you have 1000 feet on either side, so unless you have a rangefinder, you might as well keep the no wake from the dock to the lake. My two incidents made me feel that law enforcement is not trying to bust balls, or generate fine income, but only assist the folks around the bay that are being tortured by the high water.
  6. I will have this checked. I would be interested to know whether others with kickers suffer from the same battery drain. thanx again.
  7. Have a Thompson 240 Fisherman with a 350 main engine, and a Honda 9.9 4 stroke kicker. I prefer to troll with the kicker cause I can control the speed perfectly, and obviously conserve gas. Last weekend we trolled for a long time, and the main motor was not started. When we finished trolling, and wanted to head home, the battery was dead and the main motor would not start. We made it home safely with the kicker, thanx to calm seas. Can anyone advise whether the Honda has an alternator that should keep the battery charged while trolling ??? In the past, I have set a timer to remind me to start the main motor every half hour or so, but neglected to do it last weekend Any ideas out there on how I can keep this from reoccurring. Maybe another battery ?? Running two batteries now. Boat has all common electronics. Thanx

  12. X2 for contacting Mad River in Verona Beach. I have dealt with Carl on many occasions, and he has always been very informative, and went out of his way to please. He carries most tapes as well as die cuts for spinnies and pro trolls. Great web site
