  1. Hi, I have had a i/o for two years now. Mine is a 260 mercruser. I drain both sides(plugs).Then i disconnect the power steerting cooler and drain the risers. I changed the oil first and added a storgae additive to the oil. One thing i found out is you should always lower your drive while in storage. Mercruser states premature failure of the bellows if not done.Have seen many boats stored with the drive up in trailer postion
  2. This year lake Erie had a alot of problems with toxic algae blooms. Could we be next. The blooms are directly related to the quagga infestation There is a new article on the "save our sodus "web site wttw november 15 chicago tonight the house just defeated more state control over ballast in ships using the great lakes
  3. I came accross this article for releasing fish safely. http://www.catchphotorelease.com/cpr.htm It was very informative.Good both for the lake and shore.
  4. Boat come complete with trailer and 9.9 evinrude.Owned boat two years and ran good. Looking to downsize for awhile . Boat is in the water till 11-1-2011 the boat now is set up for lake fishing with three downriggers and rodholders,
  5. Saw a recent study by NYGS was said a treatment called bio-bullet is very promising with a 70% mortality for zebra and quagga mussels. There is alot of concern now that eagles and other fish eating birds are at risk for botulism from the mussels. Loons are especialy vulnerable. i did fish sunday and fished in close.Did mark alot of fish but no takers. I did catch my share of mussels though. there were several boats off hughes in close. Did not get any report though.
  6. http://www.mlive.com/outdoors/index.ssf ... on_ti.html This is a excellent article about what we might be facing soon on Lake Ontario.
  7. Hi everyone, We have fished the big lake since 1975. Took a break for awhile but this year we spent more time. One thing I noticed is the abundance of quagga mussels on the bottom even in deep water.The art of trolling the bottom doesnt work very well anymore with these invasives. I also have a camera that goes down 85 feet and the bottom near pultneyville is covered. Recently there was a news articles on lake Michigan now supposedly covered from shore to shore. It has devasted the commercial fishery there. The USGS has a excellent article on this species and the threat it poses to our fishery.They do say a common bacteria shows much promise in controling this species. We definitly need more money spent on getting this undercontrol now
  8. Hi, Ive fished the LOC for years.I never heard of the rule that excludes solo fisherman. Went to weight a large brown the other day. I was told I needed a witness to register the fish. Sometimes it's hard to find a mate to sign up for the derby.Alot of guys just figure they never have won in the past and won't buy a ticket. Fishing alone is a difficult task.Bringing a large fish to net can be extremely difficult.So why tell a fisherman he can't register a fish unless he has a witness?
  9. : Hi, I bought a guide gear underwater camera a few years ago,used it for ice fishing. Right now im usingit for lake fishing but it doesnt have much viability.There is a 360 camera but not sure if it would work on my camera. Would like input on this topic for use on Lake Ontario. Thanks john
  10. Hi, Fished for day this past week and had pretty good luck on bass. Fished hughes west to bear creekMost fish were caught on the ledges from 15 to thirty feet.Used nightcrawlers set about 18 in of the bottom sinker. I have a garmin 176c color graph that has helped alot locating fish. Also had good luck on artifical gobie baits fished right off bottom. Look for bait schools and you will have the best catches. Saw a hugh school off the dropoff west of port .i also use a camera locating fish. Good luck

  12. Hey guys, Thanks so much for your input.Im sure alot of people will get benefit from these ideas. Nothing worse than the flies well maybe sea sickness will turn off new blood to the sport. I myself will try alot of your ideas. Thanks, John
  13. Hi, Fished off hughs sunday. Had three hits from 4.00pm to 600pm. Two browns landed. The flys were biting better than the fish. Any home remedies welcome on curbing there appetite.
  14. Hi Dave, Excellent report. I have a 26 ft searay out of pultneyville. I ran into you last year late when the kings came in.Have fished the area since the 1978. Caught some large browns this year but waiting for the sharks. Always had good luck off forman park or the point west of port. Ill be going out tomorrow to look for those kings. In years past they seem to stay in the same area as long as the bait is there. If you ever want to go out on a larger boat if the weather is iffy let me know Im always looking for those with alot of enthusism for the sport. Blue Dolphin 26 searay weekender John
  15. Hi, Anyone have any experience using this product. They claim this is superior to regular steel cable with less noise. thanks
  16. Went out on sunday. Fished solo with one downrigger and one dipsey. Had two releases on the dipsey,white spinny and hammer green fly. Alot of fish and bait. It should turn on once the temps get straightened out.There were only two other boats with unknown sucess.Will try again monday
  17. i use a small dodger with a fly below close the ball. . I add a cheater about ten foot just above the dodger. Silver hoards with a rattle has been a killer for kings suspended over deeper water. I have caught kings on every pass using this method. also running diamond kings about thirty feet back with a silver hoard about ten fet above has also taken many kings. Good fishing to all.
