  1. Last Spring I decided to replace the floor in my Grumman CC 16 footer, 1988. (it sold on this site last May) After taking the battery and tank out from under the splashwell, I noticed that the transome was very soft. There was about 10" of exposed wood and you could scrap it away like it it was wet cardboard. After removing the motor , and transome trim, it was apparent how bad the decay was. I removed all of the original transome and made a new one from 3-layers of 1/2" marine grade plywood. So be sure to stick your head under the splashwell and poke around with a screwdriver to look for soft wood.

  3. Sunday morning, found 2 dumb ones to bite on the wire dipsie with lime green echip flasher out in 300tf, set at 330 feet. nothing on the riggers. That is from 6:30 to 12:30. The first one hit at 10:00 and the last at high noon, go figure. It was a great day to be on the water.

  6. I have a 16 footer CC. I am almost always the smallest boat out there. I watch the wave reports (weatherunderground.com) and if it's 2 foot or less your are fine to go out. I was out in 3 footers 2 weeks ago, its a little uncomfortable but still safe enough. You have to know your boats limitations and watch for changing conditions.
  7. I have a Fishhawk purchased in 2012 with about 30 hours on it. Worked fine last year. Now the first time in the water this years it's not sending anything from the probe to the transducer. The screen is blank for the down speed and temp. Batteries are new. Any suggestions?
  8. Worked hard for 1 nice King, (missed 1 on the Dipsey), about 6:30pm in about 110fow down 80 on green chrome flasher and hammer fly. It was like a bathtub out there. At the fish cleaning station, other guys are had a little better luck, with 2 or 3 in the box. Looks like there are starting to come in.
  9. Fished out of Oswego from 2 to 7:30 Hit a few fish W of the power plant out on 140fow. landed 2 outta 3 between 5:00 and 6:00pm. No other hits. 2 hits on Dipsey with green flasher and fly and 1 on a meat rig with a big lime green paddle.
  10. I'm heading up to Wellsley Island for a week of camping. Can anyone offer any advise on how to hook up with some Perch in the area? Any help will be appreciated.
  11. I have a freind at work who goes with Moby Dick twice a year. He said he's worth the drive up from Utica

We picked up all 5 within a 500yd distance about mile up shore towards Sandy pond (4 small and 1 around 5#). Nothing on spoons. All on sticks Blk-Silver with orange bellies, would'nt touch the FireTigers. Picked up 3 before 9:00 (one throwback with a lamprey hole almost through the other side). Added trolling sinkers after 10:00 and picked up 2 more in deeper water. Absolute perfect conditions. Cloudy water and cloudy skies. ====================
  13. I read on a an earlier blog that you need to run out the Pwr Pro behind the boat with something to give you drag, and then reel it all back in under pressure to "pack" the line on the spool. I did it with an 11 in flasher and it seemed to work ok.
