  1. Mine did the semi-same in my Islander years ago. Took the carb off, disassembled it, cleaned it, reassembled it and never even needed a gasket set. Good thing as the young man at the local auto parts store didn't have a clue when I asked him for a re-build kit for a 2-bbl. Rochester.
  2. I've got to go to work in a few minutes.......................
  3. Heard, only heard, that there are Kings around Oswego. Friends of ours did catch a couple matures in front of the plant earlier in the week.
  4. I'm under the suspicion that it does not matter, but that is just my thoughts.
  5. We hovered in the 170-190-200 fow. We ran 2.2-2.5. I'm trying to figure out a way to go back out as well..........soon...........hahaha. Actually going to Oneida this Sunday with the liitle boat, wind permiting.
  6. We never caught one single King, Dave. All were Coho, every last one, both days. Musta' been a pile of 'em schooled up there. The majority were coming from about 100 ft down.
  7. Left the launch a bit after 6:00 on Saturday(and Sunday) and ran straight out of the chute to a couple waypoints we had from last year. Sat down in 170 fow and had fish on the screen, Yahoo! We scrambled our program into the water like a Chinese fire drill. Boards, copper, flys, spoons, cheaters, were all out in record time! We had heard it had been a spoon bite, so we ran a glow frog, moonshine green glow ladder, tropical thunder to start, along with others, but could not resist a couple flasher/fly combo's that we use on the East end. Well the western fish sure liked them! Mtn.Dew/Crush Glow with a Big Weenie Butterface kept firing, as did the Reverse Eyeball Man pulling a green-glow Atomic, but the spoons were working some as well. Averaged a fish about every 20-30 minutes, with well over 12-14 or more total, missed about half as many more. Had a blast! Best fish Saturday was an 18 lbs Coho, being boated by one of my son's friends that had never done this before..........he's hooked now!! Sunday was slower but still boated 8. Weather was killer, lake was flat, all our gear functioned as planned, including my on-board new solar battery charger, and a great fishing trip was enjoyed by us. Damn good fishing!!!
  8. Jig fisherman have been having good luck in 8-15 fow near Sylvan Beach, Edgewater, and Messengers. Heard that there were a few good catches, ripping Sonars in the canal/Fish Creek as well.
  9. We are going west this weekend.
  10. Came home, hooked up the battery and lowered the outboard, as if nothing had happened. Looked the switch over by eye, and saw nothing odd. I'll poke around with a tester tommorrow.
  11. On the way out of the house this morning I heard a noise coming from my Walleye boat. 2003 Tracker/90 hp Merc. The motor was all the way up, and tried using the switch on the motor to lower it, but would not respond. Power trim unit was HOT! Disconnected the battery as I had to get to my business. Any suggestions?
  12. I think that the expanding Moose population is the favored child up there at this point.
  13. I've solo'ed in my 22ft Islander, and I'm life-vest/hand-held radio/whistle-equipped on my person, when doing so............with my cell phone in my pocket. I'd MUCH rather have someone else with me. Hope that guy gets back on safe ground.
  14. Not trying to be a wise-guy, but why so much?
  15. It's not that there is a best boat, but rather how you can make your boat the best it can be for your use, IMHO.
  16. Thanks guys! Dave said that you folks were going to go there. Should be fun, as long as the weather doesn't throw a curve ball.
