  1. my mechanic found a guy who rebuilds and reprograms the computers and this fixes most issues along with a new fuil pump. but i will try this first. being cheeper,
  2. Trolling plate used for a short time and am putting an electric trolling motor on to replace this ? $30.00 in Waterloo NY
  3. This boat is not really set up for a kicker BTW how is the new house
  4. I am thinking of putting a Minn kota 160 riptide on my outboard and using it for trolling and such Does anyone have any experience with this unit and using LI-ON batteries ? want at least 200 amp hours or more The 160 pound thrust twin motors will push the boat fast enough but the big question is how many AH do you need and should I go for AGM or LI-ON or just deep cycle lead acid ? the cost of the LI-ON seems very steep ?
  5. Thanks for the info.. I have been going to Eire [fishing out of Eire Pa] and taking a limit most trips Not a lot of fun to catch but great to eat. Average about 4 pounds average. Downriggers and dipsys 40 to 60 FOW Speed is funny at times some times slow 1.5mph and other times 2.3 ? Eire is a strange lake with waves coming in 3 directions quite often. John Lampe marine is a friendly place to launch too. Dr W
  6. I have always targeted Trout and salmon however I have gotten the but to try and target walleyes in Ontario. I am looking at the eastern end from Sodus bay east and want to know if anyone has had any success ? I know that on the Canadian side that in the winter they find some fish in the bays? [ Big walleyes ] A few folks have caught the stray Walleye when targeting salmon but has anyone actually tried to target the Walleyes? Dr W
  7. Thanks for that info , Perhaps a excavation mounted Minn Kota Salt water Like the RT 160 em does anyone have any experience with this? https://mk.factoryoutletstore.com/details/33562/minn-kota-rt160em-saltwater-motor-160-lbs.thrust,-engine-mount.html?category_id=20867&catalogitemid=35281
  8. I am looking to put a bow mounted trolling motor on my Welcraft 210DC I have never used one or have any experience with them so any advice is helpful I am willing to go to a 24 volt with as mush thrust as possible DrW
  9. Actually the Coast Guard and Auxiliary are told to refrain from towing you in unless it is an emergency ! and to call a commercial tow service [sad] [towboatus] I will look for you out of Hughes next trip out.. Neat seeing a pontoon out trolling ~
  10. Thank you all ! Channel 16 is the hailing and distress frequency and Station Rochester and Oswego monitor it as do all USCG stations Sad to say but the USCG.Aux is a shadow of what it was in the 1990's - 2000's era There are still some Auxiliary units in the Genny and Sodus point but no where the numbers we had 20 years ago. [To many lawyers got involved and made it all but impossible to serve like we did] It is up to us to cover each others back now in the early season when there are fewer boats out. Good fishing ! See you all on the water ~ Dr W on the vessel "Low Profile" Out
  11. Well the boat is ready and Sodus point is where I prefer to launch but I hesitate to go because there are so few others going out now. IF you get into trouble there are so few people out on the lake you might be hard pressed to get towed in! I always watch out for other fisherman and have towed a few folks in over the years What is my point? Perhaps we should have a board and post our ports and when we are going out and have our marine radios on to CH16 and watch each others backs ? I plan of getting out soon and I will keep my radio on and you need help just call Vessel "Low Profile" I will pull tackle and tow you in ! Dr W
  12. Sodus launch on 14 looked good the water was not to high !! Hughs marina should be good too Hughs is in Williamson http://hughesmarina.com/
  13. I have an Evenrude FITCH 150 and anyone who knows outboards knows that they can be troublesome and fussy ~! Well I found an outboard guy that is just top shelf and knows outboards better than anyone I have met. He spend 2 hours with me and plugged my motor in and ran the diagnostics And fixed a bunch of things and now the motor runs like it never has before [ excellent ] Explained which oil to use and how to index the plugs right ,and all I can say is if you have an outboard that you want fixed or if you need to buy a used motor CALL RICHARD or Text him @ 1-315-313-3841 Tell him Dr Watson sent ya [U.S.C.G.Aux] He is right on Rt 11 just south of Central Square. He is reasonable in h is prices too.
  14. The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary is always looking for new members who have an interest in all aspects of boating. Our membership has been shrinking over the past 20 or 30 years and we sure could use some new blood. Check us out IF you have the time and energy and love boating and boaters. http://www.cgaux.org/units.php http://wow.uscgaux.info/content.php?unit=092-04-07 Would love to have you join us!
