  1. You can’t beat a Boga Grip. Very well made and has an accurate scale built in
  2. ENE wind could have something to do with that
  3. Well, I said it would never happen on my boat but it did. Took the wife out for a ride from I-Bay to meet my nephew out at Braddocks for a swim a few beers. We were a little early so I dropped the probe down and had good temp down 45-50 in 60ft. Put 2 riggers and a dipsey out and you guessed it, 10 mins. later the dipsey fires and a nice 15+ hits the net. Wife’s not in the derby. Pulled the lines and said we’re done fishing.
  4. A-Lure-A. At least the traffic to the gas dock at Sutter’s is helping to keep the weeds down a little. I was wondering how SouthPoint was. Hopefully doesn’t get any worse for you. The Game Club is low and weedy. Very fortunate to have an outboard. Good luck fishing
  5. Because of the low water we’re weed choked at our marina. The worst we’ve seen this early in the year. And it’s just gonna get worse as the level drops
  6. Go for Yamaha and you will sleep well. $$ but worth it
  7. I know of one in Port Clinton OH. Waypoint Marine deals in used Pursuits and Tiaras. There used to be one in A-Bay that sold a lot of Pusuits over the years but not they’re not showing any inventory on their website. Walstrom Marine in Michigan is another. Good luck
  8. There are a lot of freshwater Pursuits on the Great Lakes. You need to be searching Lake Erie and Michigan boats for sale thru brokers or private sellers. Can also be found in upstate NY also in Alexander Bay Area. IMO, as stated above you need to be a very competent troubleshooter when dealing with an older saltwater boat.
  9. Thanks Brian. Vaguely remember that. 2012 is outside of my recent memory range.
  10. Brian Weidel from the USGS gave a very good presentation and is an excellent, knowledgeable speaker. Lots of graphs showing past trawl results and variety of baitfish. This years numbers should be interesting. Not so sure that the die off we’re seeing is that common. Haven’t seen anything like this in recent memory
  11. I take back the raccoon statement. Got a little carried away there talking about the nest oiling. Bottom line is something needs to be done about those damn birds. The USFWS needs to expand the permits to put a dent in the NE population.
  12. I was told the oiling of the eggs worked great on ground nests like Gallou and Stoney Islands years ago because the birds killed all the trees and they had no choice where to nest. Given the opportunity to nest high in trees like we’ve seen in Irondequoit Bay and other islands, the birds will nest there, which makes oiling and raccoon predation impossible. A fire fighting boat with a high pressure water cannon would be my choice of weapon.
  13. It’s true most marinas require you to have insurance in their contracts, but very few make you prove it with paperwork. Marinas are not liable. We just started this year making dock renters show proof of coverage. Sorry to hear about your damage. Hope you’re back out fishing soon.
