  1. Also female Kings we caught were loaded with eggs, didn't know process started this early. Kings we caught seemed to be 3 yr olds, all of our fish had empty stomachs also.
  2. Congrats on nice catch, spent last week there with Thurs as best day, fished Fair Haven over 30 yrs and never experienced that many kings in spring. We ran little deeper 20-40' with riggers deeper. So question is were we late for browns or is class of fish just not there. Didn't see many boats fishing in real close either 20' or deeper.
  3. Here now. Water level at state launch about 1 ft lower than concrete Fish report caught more Kings than browns
  4. I have to agree price is about right, both my self and brother had transoms and restoration work done on 1990 Thompson 210's recently that cost $6 k each by Samson Marine in Red Creek. We will never get full amount of that back maybe half if lucky so get the survey for sure to be sure, split the cost with owner
  5. Way to go in spite, of bad report re lake flipping , I like the boat name too, good to see younger generation involved. Maybe the captain the is camera man?
  6. Swas in the forum . His method was to cast net live bait, supposedly it is done on a certain section of river, up river donaw your post and thought maybe you would be willing to share some info/advice to a fellow fisherman. Have been fighting Big O since late 80"s only fished Hudson twice , out of Kingston, gentlemen I met at Fair Haven 15 yours ago during spring brown trip who is from the area came on my boat and showed what he does which is troll big lipped Bombers near the bottom mostly along 20' water hugging shoreline. Anyway I saw one charter captain from our area was doing Charters up there, thats why I 't know where, considering a charter to reduce learning curve, couple of retired fisherman lucking for fun. By the way just came back from a week at Fair Haven, have a 210 Thompson rag top. Best at Fair Haven was 29'Atlantic, 9'8" brown. Read you post and live reports often . What are your thoughts?
  7. Just got back from FH, up all week, west was best and warmer 48", caught fish all week except Thurs went east and had clear water, only one 17" rainbow, not a steelhead, let it go of course. 9'8" brown and 29" Atlantic was best, only average about 4-5 per outing. Old black and purple evil eyes with white on back took bigger fish, orange and green fire tiger took a few . We didn't kill em but were satisfied. Hadn't fished here in ten years since we moved to Oak Orchard. Will be back annually.
  8. Head unit worked, minus a couple of bulbs but could still make out numbers, not sure about torpedo. web site for maracommarine.com in Florida that repairs Ray Jeff products
  9. I believe this Eagle is made by Lowrance and I believe you are correct that they don't service units older than 3 yrs.My last Lowrance was a 16c color unit and I was told by them, I believe after three years, that they will not service them. This Eagle unit will get someone in the game for very low costs and probably not worth the $$ to service anyway considering the low cost.
  10. Have this unit willing to ship to anyone for FREE just for cost of shipping, interested in parts or to have repaired, have web site that does repairs in Florida
  11. If anyone is interested best offer plus shipping. Have 8'whip antenna for loran. Does anyone know whether loran system is still running?
  12. Not knowing what to do with this unit I decided to see if someone starting out could use it to get started fishing the Big O. I used it on my boat until 2003 when I bought a bigger boat, so it works. It has dual transducers 50z/200z, has split screen for plotter, Loran module, 8'ft whip antenna. Since GPS has become the standard not sure if Loran system is up and running. Even without its use it gives someone a unit for little $$ Has all mounting hardware, wires, cables and instructional booklets. $100 plus pay shipping
  13. Overton sells a non-skid paint for boats. Not cheap either but I think it is rubberized also.
  14. That is why they make it in stainless steel if you go to Airmar site I believe they tell you that under the instructional and brochure part. Buy the SS instead. I'm in the market for a B60 20 degree for a Furuno 585, ready to buy they Gil from THT. If you have what I was gonna buy maybe we can work out a deal, I can buy yours and you can re-order a SS one. Just an idea.
  15. Be careful if you clic on the mikes marina website, it took me to the site but when I clicked on a link for boat rates it sent my screen into a funk where the only way out was to call the microsoft number, only problem the number was really scammers trying to gain access to my computer, you could tell the woman was from a foreign country. Almost got me .
  16. B744V utilizes a flaring block and works up to 24 degree dead rise, other specs are same as B60, its a 600 watt transducer , cone width at 100' & 400' are the same
  17. In the process of having the transom replaced on my boat so now is the time to go thru- the hull with a transducer . Currently running Furuno 585 with a TM 260 on the transom. Although I get a good screen I can't always see my down rigger balls. At 100 ' depth using 50z transducer cone is 34 ft wide and using 200z only 11' cone. I bought my unit thru Gil from The Hull Truth who recommended this unit. I've read in the past that the B60 is all you need. Looking at the specs for the B60 the cone width at 100' is 83' using 50z. Although not as sensitive and powerful as the TM 260 you would think you would see more fish. You can get the SS246 where you can run dual transducers but you don't have to. With just the 50z transducer at 100' cone width is 45'. Anyone have any experience and thoughts on this which would be appreciated
