  2. Just received a pair of 13# weights in the mail today. Nice looking product for a nice price. Can't wait to try them in the Derby this weekend. Zern
  3. I second Froggers report out of Hugh's. I was running mostly shallow stuff but had on a lot of green stuff. Went 7 for 9 including a nice 17 pound king on a green/silver spoon. I was surprised to do so well in the east wind.
  4. HOLY SMOKES! But he must have been just about out of energy cuz after eating him, I had a to take a nap! If I am every lucky enough to catch another I will get the extra info ya need. Thank you very much for responding Glenn!
  5. Don't let it go to your head Nick! We guys are only interested in hearing from Mrs. Ruff Rider! Glad to have ya back!
  6. WOW. Tagged this year! Fish was caught roughly one mile North of Hugh's marina or NNE of Pultneyville NY. 25 feet down over 120 feet of water on a orange/silver NK28. I did not weight the fish at time. We caught 6 more steelies in the general area. It was 1st fish we caught on the day and rainbow being one of my favorite fish to eat, (and it was perfect eating size)I through him in the cooler. I still have the tag and will return it if ya want. Let me know if there is any other info ya need. Zern
  7. Thank you, Pvelyk. I called the number but their mailbox was full. MEA = Metro East Anglers.

    Motor controls

    Thank for the response, Buko! I never thought to look at the engine end cuz the grinding sound come out of the controls at the console. I know the two star wheels you speak of. Thanks again!
  12. Hi all I own a seanymph with an mid 70's evenrude. During the season last year I noticed that when i go to engage the the drive, gears in the control tend to grind a bit an not want to engage. some times not wanting to engage at all. This is not in the engine but at the side mounted shifter/throttle. Is there a way to tighten up the clutch? Thank you for any help!
  13. I think your right about getting on ice late Dec. (fingers crossed) Looking at the latest forecast, I am figuring on traveling ta Eel bay soon. I am more concerned about lake levels right now. Eel bay at best is only 6' deep. Fish should still be there but what about Sandy pond, Braddock or any other shallow bay. We may have ta look for fish in other places. Check your gear! I think your going ta need it soon!
  14. LOL! The mod's are gunna bust us for talking ice fishing in the panfish section. Pontoons on the snowmobile. Send pics! Hey Grady! Don't get rid of the tip-ups. Put swim noddles on 'em!
  15. Hey Panfisher! Most all the gills were redeared sunfish. There may have been a "seed" or two mixed in. I am one of them dumba$$'s that just calls them all "gills". But I do remember seeing the redspot on the "blue" gill on most all the ones I cleaned. As far as Ice fishing goes, There will be no season again this year. I can tell. Last year I purchased a brand new Otter flipover. And then waited for the ice. And waited and waited.... This year, I bought a Fishscout camera and now I wait.... I think I will skip winterizing the boat! Good Luck!
  16. Launched at the northend Monday afternoon with my brother. Headed down the east side, just across from Butler road. Anchored the boat in 13 FoW and for the next 2 hours we pounded the perch and gills. Perch were average, about 8-9 inches. Lots of the gills were bigger. Through a bunch back but kept 30. Just used a plain hook and some wally-world worms (say that 3 times fast! lol) Light tackle and tons of fun! Get out if ya can! The leaves are at peak! Zern
  17. Totally Wild Fish!! I can see that on the cover of a Mag!! Congratz!! Zern/Mark S.S. Buckshot
  18. Nice Report ,Reel intense! I was outta Hugh's that same morning. I just installed a Moor this year and it really came in handy yesterday! I could not believe how fast I needed to troll when headed west. I don't have a GPS yet but my lowrance graph said I was doing 4.10 mph just ta do 2.25 a hundred feet below! Felt like I was racing. For a few moment I was sure if i should believe my gauges. Then the Rods started popping! Without the probe, I would have never trolled that fast. Make sure ya get one on your wishlist! I too noticed the fishing got hotter as the morning wore on. Ended up 6 for 12. biggest was 18.8 king on a slider. Zern/Mark Boat name: Buckshot
  19. Fishing Report Your Name / Boat Name:Buckshot ============== TRIP OVERVIEW ============== Date(s):6/10/12 Time on Water:5:15am Weather/Temp:12pm Wind Speed/Direction:light south, then died away. Waves: nill Surface Temp: 61 Location:200 fow LAT/LONG (GPS Cords): =============== FISHING RESULTS =============== Total Hits: 21 Total Boated:17 Species Breakdown: 4 kings, 1 laker,2 choho's and 10 leaping steelies! Hot Lure: Mich. stinger confusion. Anything with orange in it Trolling Speed: 3.5 Down Speed: 2.5 Boat Depth: 170-220 Lure Depth: 50-70 ==================== SUMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== Hell of a day for me outta Hugh's. Took most of the kings 1st light. Biggest in the teens I guess. Others were around 5. (forgot my scale on my buddies boat) That big salmon managed to get the slider's hook in to the dipsy's wire strandes. By the time he was done with it, it looked like a wad of steelwool. The kings disappeared after sun up but the steelies wanted to play. Seamed to me they wantted only smaller lures with orange in 'em. Once I swithed to that program it was GAME ON! Anytime I was able to sit down it was because my speed had slowed down. On the surface it felt like I was racing around but that is what they wanted. My new Moor paid for itself taday.
  20. Thanks again for the info, guys I have ta agree that I didn't think there was much wrong with the launch. I am not suprised that people are putting heat on them to finish the job. 20 bucks to launch a boat? Please tell me that is a typo! Mark
  21. What's the word on the North end launch? Last update I have seen was end of May. Are they open for business? Thanks for any Info! Mark
  22. Nice Report, KJB! I was at the Branchport end. Launched out of the park. 6am till 10:30am. Went 8 for 8. However I didn't need ta go so deep. Down 50 ta 60 feet. Ran 2 coppers and a rigger. They seam ta want anything that glowed. All of the bites came before 9am. I also agree with the size this year.(I thought I was imagining it) They all seam to be running slightly bigger. What a beautiful day!
  23. Sorry Reel. I shouldn't read so fast. I thought ya just wanted ta know what the limits are. I am punishing myself by wading thru the DEC web site. And punishment is right I found this: http://www.dec.ny.gov/regulations/79970.html I did see where the comment for these changes just ended on April 2nd. But, when you read it is says: Existing paragraph 10.3©(2) IS amended to read as follows: All Finger Lakes except for Cayuga Lake, Otisco Lake, Owasco Lake and Skaneateles Lake. Brown trout, Rainbow trout, Lake trout, Landlocked salmon All year 15" 5 in combination. Catch shall include no more than 1 rainbow trout or 3 Landlocked salmon. Now I am confused, IS it changed or isn't it? Think I may give a call to the DEC office Monday to find out. Zern
  24. For all fingerlakes: 5 in combination (catch shall include no more than 3 lake trout or 3 landlocked salmon) Also for all trout and salmon: 15" except 9" for rainbow trout in Owasco Lake and Skaneateles Lake and 18" for landlocked salmon in Cayuga Lake.
