  1. Selling a Minn Kota 2-bank on board charger. 20 amp output. Everything works as it should selling because I replaced with a 3-bank. Asking $150 shipping included or $120 OBO if meeting up somewhere to pick up. Located in Attica NY.
  2. Not necessarily - the tip and its action (or how soft the top end of the rod feels) varies between rod manufacturers. To get an idea on how a muskie rod might feel, compare both its action (medium, MH, H, XH, etc) to its taper (moderate, moderate fast, fast, etc.). A rod with a fast taper will bend more towards the tip of the blank thus giving it that stiffer feeling. St. Croix rods tend to have faster tapers paired with their actions vs. chaos tackle rods which have more of a parabolic bend and load more further down the blank. Both are great rods and have different tip actions. A lot of it comes down to A. what you're throwing with it and B. personal preference. To the original poster's question: what is the size baits are you going to be throwing with this rod? Boat-side maneuvers are a big part of musky fishing now so longer rods have definitely become the norm. If you're going to stay under 8' or go with a longer (8'0+) telescopic rod, you can probably find some used ones in facebook groups that are relatively cheap to ship and discounted. Otherwise, your retail options are pretty limited around NY minus cabelas in Buffalo and Chautauqua Reel Outdoors in Lakewood down by Chautauqua.
  3. For Sale: Under Armour Ridge Reaper Gore-Tex Hydro Bibs and Gore Tex Hydro Jacket Bibs are size XL and Jacket is size L. Bibs have SOLD Jacket is a size L and has been worn sparingly. No tears, rips, or holes and all zippers/snaps are undamaged and like new. $75 for jacket shipped $180 for both shipped
  4. Chapter 70 will have a brand new Chaos Tackle 9'6" SWAT (XH) 20/20 Assault Stick and rod sleeve to raffle as well.
  5. Awesome catch and nice fish especially from where he caught it but I would wager the farm that its not even close to approaching 60"...I would put it at maybe 52-53" given the additional photo angles I've seen. That and, the fact that it went from 60" to 57" in less than 2 days (from the same guy) leads me to strongly believe that it was not accurately measured at all and that it was more of an estimate to begin with.
  6. Set of (2) long arm and (2) short arm manual downriggers with wire, line counters, and hardware/mounting plates. $200.00 OBO for all, located near Attica NY
  7. Like new lakewood hard sided box that holds up to 12 14"x8.5" plano storage boxes, plano boxes not included but can be negotiated in Located near Attica, NY and can meet half way within reasonable distance around Rochester/Buffalo area to deliver $150.00 OBO
  8. Selling a heavy duty 111-D-U C mount with 2" ball for large electronics. $75 shipped
  9. I used to spend a lot of time on conesus - may head back for the opener this weekend. its been a while!
  10. Selling a pair of XL UA Gore-Tex bibs - worn sparingly over the past 3 seasons but they are too big for me. Excellent waterproofing in heavy rains and compares to high end Cabelas/BPS suits. $150.00 shipped OBO
  11. "In my opinion, team is the best format. Individual format leaves too much opportunity for dishonesty when trolling." I agree Adam - and surprise surprise someone already tried to take advantage of that several times during this year's tournament trail.
  12. Upgraded to a new Terrova so I am selling my old Minn Kota Terrova 24V 80lbs thrust, 60" shaft with iPilot, remote, foot pedal and mounting hardware (both for quick release bracket as well as for mounting right to deck). Foot pedal, remote and motor run great but, there is a squeak at low speeds other than that no issues at all. Motor is located in Victor NY. Price is $750.00
  13. Selling a backup Tranx 301 AHG (7:6:1 gear ratio) with paddle handle only. Reel was used for one outing and is basically brand new and comes spooled with 80lbs power pro max cuatro. $230.00 firm.
  14. I think over harvest has done that lake in unfortunately. I imagine they're probably still being yanked and kept or even worse left out on the ice for the birds since they are thought to be "eating all the good fish"
  15. Were nominations made for new officers for the January vote?
  16. Chad your painting skills have really improved
  17. The one you posted is the xorsist judging from the looks of the lip. The hex is a wandering crank bait built off of the 10" and 12" phantom bodies - I like them too! It works well without the weights too, just higher in the water column
  18. Hex or Xorsist? Looks like the xorsist which is their new "dive and glide" bait. Essentially it is a 10" phantom that dives on the retrieve. I really like it a lot especially with the screw in weights. I put the 1 oz on mine and can work it 10-12' down
  19. 4 years ago it was 23 degrees and foggy the morning of and then got into the mid-upper 30s. I'd take having to deal with reel ice-up most of the morning anytime over 80 degrees in October!
  20. use at least 80lbs fluoro and tie main line directly to fluoro via uni to uni knot. I'd go at least 8-10" in length for the leader since it sounds like the head of the bait is getting smashed a majority of the time. Good luck!
