  1. QUESTION to you guys, this post is really putting the fear in my next outing with my STX's has anyone replaced the steel cable with , for example, Power-Pro braid 200#? My question really is, will the "short-stop" still work with the braid ?
  2. I coated my MG plywood with Gluvit. From Jamestown distributers. Also the 3M 5200 adhesive is one of the strongest available for other repairs. I ordered new steering cable and pumps from Wholesale marine. The new foam was also from the same company. PS the 2-gal kit was not enough for the entire job
  3. Tetrop, I replaced the floor, flotation, and transom in a 1988 17' Grumann CC, (third boat that I replaced the floor) I have lots of pics and can answer questions etc if you like. send an email at [email protected]
  4. most likely it is the gear linkage rod connector is out of adjustment, or in the wrong position. my mercury 115hp 4s has an adjustment screw at the top in the motor cowl. my older merc 60hp 2s, had a cam that needed to be in a certain side of the lobe, learned that the wrong way. My 9.9 yamaha has an adjustment with a set-screw on the shift rod. what is the year, hp and make of the motor?

  10. I have 10 streamer flies for sale that I used to catch Rainbows and Landlocks down on Skaneateles and Cayuga finger lakes when I used to live down there. These were made in a fly-shop in Skaneateles that I believe is out of business. The streamers are approx 3.25 long with tandem hooks and all are in good condition. Comes with a plano box. I hope someone can put them to good use.TanTandem Flies.pdfdem Flies.pdfTandem Flies.pdfTandem Flies.pdf $30.00 includes shipping. Tom, 315-280-6053
  11. Your boat or mine. All of my buddies are too busy with “other” activities. I mostly fish weekends but have a flexible work schedule so during the week is also possible. Looking for 1 or 2 fisherman who share the same passion for chasing Browns, Salmon (eastern end Ontario) and Walleye on Oneida. I live 90 minutes from Oswego and 30 minutes from Oneida. I have a FM196 and have everything we need for a descent spread. I am happy going on your boat and will split all gas and launch costs. I can typically go on short notice. Give me a call or text: 315-280-6053. Tom.
  12. I swear I caught that one last year in the same spot the week before the walleye opener. I put it back in the water w/o a measurement... The biggest walleye I ever saw. Nice catch, that would be a nice wall hanger
  13. Mexico launch is fine. I prefer to launch outta Port Ontario, but have heard its shallow this year. Not sure
  14. Apparently, Saturday (with the blue sky's) was a better day than the rain/overcast Sunday. go figure. had a quality not quantity day with a 5 and and 10 pounder in 10/12 fow on a silver/orange stickbait and a chicken-wing Stinger. Great day to be on the water just the same.
  15. Try North Woods Outlet They have Shakespeare line counters for $30.00 and Okuma 's for $37 If you are a week end warrior, they will last a while. https://northwoodsoutlet.com/product-category/fishing/reels/trolling-reels/?orderby=price
  16. Does anyone know if the Port Ontario, Pine Grove Launch is free of ice / open ?
  17. Also, Hummingbird website will provide you with updated s/w. You just need a card to download the file onto. They will provide you directions on how to install and turn on the unit in Demo mode so you will not harm the transducer
  18. My 2005 FM196 is all aluminum
  19. Sorry. Contact Tom, text 315-280-6053
