  1. I'm helping a friend do some mods on a boat he just came across. It is an Odyssey 175SS made by Forest River. He wants to lighten it up some so he's looking to replace the plywood decks with aluminum. The problem is we can't figure out exactly how the carpeted plywood is fastened. The carpet is rolled under the edges so it wasn't put on after he plywood but there are no visible screw/rivet heads in the carpet. Does anyone have any experience with this brand and how they do things?
  2. I am not an expert by any means on the river but I would say that you are going to be very limited with shore fishing. I know when we are there my son does a lot of fishing from docks but that's about it. That is one thing about that area, virtually all of the shore lines are steep rocky banks with a tangled mess of trees. With all of that being said, rig them up a slip float and put on a 1/2 of a night crawler and they will catch something.
  3. Sorry, I can't be much help with the crappies. We only catch a few and they are all by accident.
  4. We fished all last week everywhere from Alex bay down to Blind bay. The large mouth fishing was fairly good but the smallies were really spread out. We caught a few more accidental Pike than normal but not a lot (while bass fishing). We also were able to get two eyes and a bowfin with some nice perch and crappies mixed in. All in all it was another great week on the St. Lawrence river . The worst part is now waiting until next June before we head back.
  5. I was up all last week and you really had to keep an eye out for floating debris. There wasn't a ton of it but you had to be mindful.
  6. This was going to be my exact post except for I've been using my black and decker for at least 20+ years and its still the original set of blades. I've used it on every type of panfish, bass, pike, trout and who knows what else. The new Bubba cordless look very inviting but that sure is a lot of new fishing lures.
  7. regardless of the water level we will be up, ng is not a problem. I was just wondering if there was a site that I could keep an eye on it. In '17 we had one of the best years ever and I can't imagine that this year will be any different.
  8. I'm looking at upgrading my current 12v trolling motor to a 24v. Currently I have two batteries in the back of the boat. One for the trolling motor and one for the starting motor/electronics. I don't really have room for a third in the back so here is my question. How far apart can two batteries be that are wired for 24v? can one be at the back and one in the front? I am willing to give up some of the storage in the front for a second battery but not sure it ill work being approximately 10' apart.
  9. Do you know if there is a online gauge that can be found?
  10. I'm getting very anxious to head north to the great St.Lawerance. I can't seam to find any up to date water level info so I figured I would ask the guys that know best.
  11. I'm assuming that you mean largemouths, if so, we had several of them at 4lbs or a little more. No real big one but decent. I'll be curious to see how the big boys do next week.
  12. Just got back from a week of fishing in the Chippewa bay area for bass mostly. Smallie fishing was tougher than normal for us but the large mouth were everywhere. The smallies seemed to be on NO pattern at all. We caught them from 5' to 45' and couldn't find any schools at all to sit on. All in all we had another great week on the SLR so who could complain about that.
  13. Nice catches guys. Try to hold them off for another week until I get there for the second go around.
  14. They may not fight as hard as smallies but I will assure you that they will taste better. I don't fish for perch when m up there but I have to ask, how the heck are you fishing for them in that deep of water?
