  1.   At least this year you don't have to worry about ice coming over the falls so far and maybe  not at all.   First time I fished the art park drift with my father and brother in my father' s  18ft. boat, my brother insisted that we had to go to the  devil's hole to get any fish.  My father told him "F- that" his boat wasn't going there and if he wanted to go, get out and walk there the fish have to go past us to get there!  Needless to say we didn't go there!  lol fond memories.

  2.   FYI, to you guys using climbing stands after climbing utility poles for 40 yrs. here is a little tip. Every pole or tree has what is called a high side & a low side. The high side is what you want to climb on, look at the tree & most will lean one way or the other the high side is the side that will be leaning away from you,(like a ladder) this is the side you want to climb on it will be the easiest & safest to climb. Also this is the side you want to hang your stand on for the most comfort while sitting.  Good luck & be safe!

    Thanks for the information on the crossbow , what model Parker does he have.

      Parked went out of business last year. a year after I bought my X bow from them!   My buddy bought a ten point with the crank & it is a nice set up & easy to cock.

  4. Put a rubber band through the eye on the meatball & do a 1/2 hitch around your line putting the meatball through the rubber band loop, it will either break off or you pull it off when you wind it in & get your ball back.

  5.    Just a thought, why just because the water gets deeper do "they"  close everything down??  The oceans  are miles deep and they don't shut them down due to deep water.  JMO the water is not the problem it is the people operating the launches/docks not taking the time to move, raise, extend, repair & make the docks useable.  We all pay to use the launches, improvements should be made when needed.   Olcott is always great & taken care of , no reason why all the others can't be!  No reason launches should be closed.

  6.    I have 10" drum  surge trailer brakes & actuator.  They are; Dico model #10 actuator, 10,000# gross wt. , 800# tongue wt.(rebuilt 3yrs. ago) , with a 2&5/16"  ball hitch(bolt on);  10" backing plates with the shoes all parts complete with 3yr. old (new) wheel cylinders also,  backing plates have a 4" bolt pattern to put on a 3,500# axle.  No drums or hubs included.  $50.00-  b/o
