  1. 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.
  2. If you have access to Microsoft Word, place all your pic's on a Word.Doc, then compress the pictures and attach. Good luck selling
  3. 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
  4. Mexico launch is fine. I prefer to launch outta Port Ontario, but have heard its shallow this year. Not sure
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. Does anyone know if the Port Ontario, Pine Grove Launch is free of ice / open ?
  8. 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

  14. high twenties with 2 guys. Its plenty for me with 2-3 guys. with 4 big guys it needs more,
  15. I went from a cramped 1988 Grumman CC 16.5 footer to the 2005 FM196 with a 115 merc 4S, and a 9.9 kicker, which to me is like fishing in my living room. I love it. I tow it with a toyota highlander no problem. It's a big water boat set-up for trolling with 4DR's and dipseys.. On Oneida its a little clumsy with the high sides if you want to sit down and jig (nothing beats a casting platform), but when the waves kick-up you will be glad you have it. Anything newer than mine should have a 150hp or more. as a reference, I paid 18K (Loaded), May, 2019
  16. RKP, also look at the other sites, ie, Lake Erie United, and Lake Champlain United, which is where i found my FM196 2 years ago from a recommendation from someone on this site. Good luck. https://www.lakeerieunited.com/walleye/forum/14-classifieds-buy-sell-trade-or-rent/ https://www.lakechamplainunited.com/forums/ Tom
  17. 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.

  19. 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.
