  1. Thank you again lakeontariounited'ers for the recommendations on fishing today. Fished the west side below Taughannock along the shore with sawbellys and med shoners 5 ft below a bobber. Water temp was 47-50 degrees. Landed 5 LL's. Spent 7 hrs out there and all the activity was in 1 hr around 2:00, just after the rain stopped.
  2. Thank you for all the input. Trout it is.
  3. Thank you for the input on the perch fishing. Looks like it's trout/salmon fishing. Thank you for the input fellas
  4. Suggestions for Cayuga tomorrow 5-16-17 I am going to take an inexperienced friend fishing on Cayuga tomorrow because the weather is supposed to be nice. I have everything to fish for trout and salmon, except a kicker motor. The questions are; Will I be able to catch trout and salmon drifting sawbellies? Is there a best area on the lake? Depth? Should I take them perching instead? What area of the lake? Launch site? Bait shop? Thank you, G
  5. I saw this post and thought it might help Oneida Lake Walleye season opened on Saturday, May 6th. Anglers who braved the rain and wind did manage to get some walleye both in shallow and deep water. With round gobies now abundant in the lake, it may require some adjustment in the way anglers fish for walleye. The same thing was required when zebra mussels become established in the lake and the water went from turbid to clear, fishing methods needed to be changed to match the conditions. Gobies are very bottom oriented fish so sometimes just getting a foot or two off bottom will help to avoid some of them. If using worm harnesses try trolling instead of drifting, the faster speed keeps them higher off bottom and also helps to avoid some of the gobies. Using artificial lures instead of live bait can also help. Walleye tend to be "well fed" in goby waters and can be difficult to catch; full fish are generally harder to catch than hungry fish. Sometimes going for reaction bites can help, fish hit out of reflex instead of hunger. This can be accomplished by giving erratic action to your lures by speeding them out, slowing them down, stopping them briefly, giving short quick jerks with the rod, etc.
  6. Very nice ! Can you suggest a location on Oneida to fish for perch? Thanks G
  7. I am in Apalachin. I'd like to look at your 9.9 motor. 607-222-8065. Gary. Thakns
  8. Thanks Jimski. Redwood it is.
  9. Just a technical question (not about your boat) I was hoping you could help answer. I noticed the kicker motor is mounted higher than the main motor. I have a Lund with the same style transom. Was your kicker a 28" long shaft? Did it come out of the water during rough/wavy conditions? Thank you for any input. Looks like you have a lot of interest in your boat. Good luck. G
  10. Thank you Poverty Stricken II. I found the attachment and downloaded the plans.
  11. DIY Planar Board desgn I searched this site for "planar board", hoping to find a design for home made planar boards. No such luck, but I'm sure this subject must have been discussed in the past. Does anyone have a set of plans for large (not inline) planar boards? I plan to use them on Cayuga Lake. Thank you in advance.
  12. You might be able to find the leak if you fill the hull with water while the boat is on its trailer in your driveway. Good luck.
  13. Thanks for all the input guys. I appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with me. More input is still welcome.
  14. Thank you mr 580. I was hoping to get away with a long shaft kicker, but have now resolve myself to the idea of having to mount a kicker on a bracket and attaching it to a steering linkage. Any input you have to offer on bracket installation and steering linkages will be appreciated. Thanks again, Gary
