  1. Boat is located in Wheatfield, NY about 20-25 min from Olcott
  2. we certainly didnt find em out of wilson. went 2-2...very slow day
  3. Selling my 2003 Trophy 2002 walkaround W/ trailer. Motor is 135Hp Mercury Optimax. Boat has been well taken care of, maintained every season. She's been a Great fishing boat, trolls beautifully! New winch this year. Has hard top option w/4 rod holder up top. Comes w/ full zip up vinyl enclosure, great for cold days. Will be taking fishing equipment off boat. Price is $16,500.00.
  4. No doubt about that Chrome. I wasn't directly in the pack, I was a bit west of them approx. 1/4 mile. Seemed to hook up (steelhead)most when heading east but by the time I needed to turn I was close to the others. I use the same logic out on the lake as I do in the streams, heavy pressure and when they are shallow makes for tight lips...so I try to keep a distance when possible. So I had some water to myself and unfortunatly...no decent Kings.
  5. Nice Tim, beautiful fish!! I was out Saturday with my father around 7am to about 3pm. Fished from the barn to port. I only did about 11 fish 2 small kings and rest steelhead. I seem to be getting mainly steelhead...any advise for a newer guy on getting into some kings?? I just installed my fishhawk and was in the temp range 44-49 speed was 1.8-3.1 all day and marking bait. Tried changing directions on them...as well as I could in the zoo that was out there in the morning counted 46 boats at 1 time. I've gotten into some salmon this year but nothing consistent like you always seem to do. Thanks, Scott
  6. I have a 2002 135. In the morning I give it a nice heavy run out to where I want to fish then troll around for a few hours. I like to move around so I pull the rods and get on it for a while. My dad and I were out a few weeks ago and we didn't really get on it at all...3/4 of the day the motor seemed to start acting up. He suspected it was doing so because we hadn't ran faster than 2-3mph all day, even when we went out to where we were fishing we were trying to dial in the Hds5 fishfinder so we crawled out. We checked the oil lvls, all was well so called it a day and ran it hard for a while, haven't had any problems since.
  7. I have the HDS5 also. I see the weights if Im trolling slow, if I speed up I loose the lower cannonball. I run mine with auto sensitivity on and at 83khz. I keep the transducer level, no tilt. Tried playing with all the features for a day on the water and got no where, it seemed to make it worse (not a very user friendly unit in my opinion)
