  1. Watch 'Wicked Tuna' and put in a 2nd helm like those guys use. That would be sweet!
  2. Good to hear you are on the fish again. As far as the stacker question, with that lure being the first one presented (5' back), and the aggressive nature of our beloved LL's, this was the first choice maybe?
  3. Very nice Steelie there. Is that an old lamprey hit on him? Thanks for the report.
  4. Welcome to the show, hopefully you can get after them real soon and turn your luck around. Was not the same driving by the marina and not seeing your boat there.
  5. Way to search them out, then fill the boat with some real nice steelies!
  6. We went out of Sodus last week, and were able to get a Steelhead taking a fly on the rig the camera was on, see vid. Also captured a few fish following our presentation. Overall we went 5 for 8, biggest being a medium sized King around 10 Lbs., and a Coho about the same. Best water for us was finding the warmer water in around 70'. Took one big rip on a DR rod set at 55, but came unbuttoned after ripping out 100'.
  7. I have that model FF/GPS as well, and was looking around for a transducer upgrade. I came up with this from Lowrance. http://support.lowrance.com/system/selfservice.controller?CONFIGURATION=1001&PARTITION_ID=1&secureFlag=false&TIMEZONE_OFFSET=&CMD=VIEW_ARTICLE&ARTICLE_ID=2344 PM me if you would like.
  8. Nice job, and thanks for the report. What are you seeing for temps out there?

  10. Nice job on them Brownies, all by yourself and all. I like your boat!
  11. There are fish in the bays this time of year, which one do you have in mind?
  12. Dock in yet? Wasn't on Fri. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Way to go Mark. I would like to try it this week, but not sure if I can do it without a dock! You think the other one (state launch/Margaretta Rd.) is useable?
  14. I thought I saw something strange out on the water when I was coming down the hill. Thank god you guys came across him, way to go.
  15. We have had our electric 8HP Tohatsu kicker on our 20' for about 3 years. We are 'Mercury guys', and found out that Tohatsu was virtually the same motor, so went with it. We like this motor very much so far, no problems. To answer your questions, I believe that the differences are very slight, if any in the two motors (like the gear shift you mentioned), and for parts, I was thinking about replacing the fuel pump at one point, and my research found that the Merc part was the same, it just had a different part number. I ended up putting a new filter in it, which has worked out fine. I don't know this first hand yet, but assume any reputable shop can fix these motors without an issue. I have not heard or read very many disparaging remarks about the Merc engines as you have. I think that since most the outboards you see are Mercs, one would hear the most complaints about them as well, that's just the numbers.
  16. Underwater video I took in Cayuga last year.
  17. How we video underwater.
  18. After three seasons of filming at the lure, we have come to the conclusion that we are using that line as an attractor only. We rarely get a strike on that presentation, and believe it is useful in bringing fish into the spread, and some of those fish end up hitting the dipsy or other rigger line. Overall happy to see some healthy looking fish come out of this lake, as all were in good shape with only one Lamprey hit on the bunch.
