  2. Two Scotty manual downriggers. Both riggers include cable and tilt/swivel bases. One has stainless cable and the other has coated cable from use with a Moore Subtroll. Counters work well on both. One has rodholder, other does not. One is missing handle, other has handle. Pictures show everything included. Looking for $200 for the pair. Located just south of Buffalo. I do also get to Mexico NY fairly often if that helps. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Hi, Wondering if anybody has experience adding an alternator/charging capability to a manual pull start Mercury 9.9 or similar and any insight on what all is required? Specifically, I'm looking at a 9.9 model number 9.9ML part number 1f10211fk. Some internet searching turns up that it does seem to have a 6amp alternator despite being pull start. I'm skeptical on that? Additionally some searching on these boards and others turns up Mercury Part 856558a2 - which appears to be readily availabe for around $50 "Charge Kt- Battery". The charge kit appears to just be a set of cables - does anybody know if that is all that is required to add charging capacity to a pull start 9.9? Is there anything else needed? Has anybody done this and can share any experience or advice? Looking in the manuals, it seems that the 6amps is only achieved at full throttle with little to no power generated at idle but I'm thinking it will take a few thousand RPMs to move my 24' walkaround at salmon trolling speeds, hopefully would be enough to replensish a battery running 4 riggers? Thanks!!
  4. Hi, I'm looking for 4 Tite lok adjustable rod holders. With or without bases Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Thanks all for the info. I'm not real far away- 45 minutes or so but the slow response convinced me to stay home last two nights. Will probably give it a go next weekend. I always enjoy going up for a few quarts of them. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  7. Wondering if anybody has any smelt reports for the lower Niagara? Seems time of year and lake temperature are hitting their prime for the run. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Thanks - obviously I'll need ones that you can rotate each holder around the mast, correct? Also - are these any good for storage of rods while under power etc?
  9. I'm looking to add some more rod holders to my boat this summer to better facilitate running multiple inline planers per side or multiple lines off full size boards. I've run boards in the past but always stuck to one line per board/side and throw the rod in my dipsey holder or extra downrigger holder. When running multiple lines per side, what type of rod holders do you guys find to be easiest, most efficient, etc and why? It seems the options are either a vertical tree (great lakes planers etc) or horizontal (big jon, tite lok etc). Thanks!
  10. Nature - Sent you PM. Thanks.
  11. Looking to purchase a 200 or 225 HP outboard with 25" shaft. Would prefer a Johnson or Evinrude as boat currently has OMC controls but would consider anything. Thanks.
  12. Hi Everyone - Have been out in this area and not heard much chatter on the radio. Just wondering what channel most of the fisherman in the area use? I'm from the Mexico Bay area and tend to monitor 9 and 68

    50 HP Force Outboard issue Maybe!!

    Force typically doesn't put out a sold stream, that spattering your seeing is normal for the 50 horse Force, in my opinion
  14. Well weather reports of 20-30 mph winds kept me away on Saturday. Based on the report of all the junk in the water, maybe waiting an extra week won't hurt to much. Thanks again for the info fellas.
  15. Paul - Thanks for the advice. Weather permitting I'll be out there using at least one of your suggestions tomorrow. Will post a report after.
