  1. Sometimes a light mounted above the windshield will give a glare. A buddy of mine did that and it was useless because you couldn't see a thing. I mounted my GOlight on the pulpit and it works great. I did get a little glare off the bow rail but I just painted a section of it flat black. I had to fabricate a aluminum mounting block to get the light above the anchor which is also on the pulpit.I don't know if you need a remote controlled light but it is handy at times.
  2. lrg355 is right. I changed mine easily with the instructions found online. They give you tips to use common tools rather than specialty tools.
  3. If you have a power steering oil cooler don't forget to blow it out and add antifreeze. Maybe not all IO's have them. I'm only familiar with mine.
  4. I almost feel guilty reading this post. I am not alergic to either posion ivy or poison oak. I forget sometimes that my wife can get poison from my clothes if I walk through a poison patch. My one son and daughter are alergic to pioson ivy but my other son isn't. I live in the woods so my job is to remove the poison ivy from all the trees along the sunny edge on my driveway so my wife can move the grass there without getting blotchy. Sorry guys I feel your pain but I can't really relate to it.
  5. I've been getting one or two salmon per trip. Can't keep away from the lakers. Today nothing so far. I'm the only boat in the Trench.
  6. The bears definitly seem to prefer my Cuddyback cameras. I had 2 destroyed so far. They don't touch my Brownings or Stealthcams. Cuddyback did repair them once but don't do it a second time. I have some great pics of their teeth and noses. I was thinking of putting the damaged cameras back up but it might be considered baiting. Hopefully this year they stick around for archery season. But usually the food sources change and the bears move on.
  7. I put bolts with a RTV seal in the rod holder holes. That could have been a definite water leak.
  8. I'll check on the rod holders. I don't use the rod holders on the rigger because it is too high. That could be the problem plus storing them on the unheated part of my garage.
  9. Last week I went to use my STX and it started to run as soon as it was plugged in. I opened the case and it was really corroded. The motor case and the circuit board had significant corrosion. I replaced the switch first with no results so now I ordered a circuit board. Is this corrosion because I store them in a unheated garage? Is it a grounding issue.( although the auto up worked before). Or is it just a poor case seal when they were made?
  10. This was my first time fishing at New Haven. Thursday evening caught one within 10 minutes at 135 ft, down 75. Friday was too rough so we fished the bay for bass. Saturday morning went 4 for 5 of mature salmon. 150 ft. down 80 at 2.2 MPH. All on flasher and flies. Spoons did nothing. Only hooked up on a westerly troll. Saturday evening had one release. Sunday morning we gave it a try but it was too rough for my boat. When the waves splashed over the bow we packed up and headed home.
  11. Thanks, Since I've never been to the area I didn't know what it was called officially. I'll know where to look now.
  12. I'm trying to decide why no one answered my inquiry. These are the reasons I came up with. 1. Nobody fishes from this port. 2. Fishing is so good that nobody wants to let the word out.( Just like I wouldn't tell even my buddies where I saw the massive buck.) 3. Because of the high water levels few people are fishing this year. I'm going anyway whether I get advice or not.
  13. Headed to Little Sodus later next week for a few days. I've never been there so I could use some directions on which way to go when entering the main lake. Also the recommended depth to start.
  14. Thanks, I need to rethink about staying there. Two years ago I did the same thing at Oak Orchard. Spent way too much time getting to the lake. Last year I stayed at Ernst marina but they didn't have any openings this year.
  15. In July I am going to Anchor Marina on Little Sodus Bay for a few days. How long will it take to get to the lake at no wake speed. My boat can only go 3.5 MPH and create little wake. Would it be better to try to get a slip at Fair Point Marina to avoid a slow trip across the bay. Thanks for any advice.
