  1. This prop has some scale buildup in some spots, but I've cleaned most of it off so far and it is polishing up very nicely. No dings, not bent at all -- it functions perfectly.

  2. Model #GX1250S. Comes with the radio, mounting flanges, owner's manual and some antenna cable. Works fine, but I don't need it. $45 Pickup in Ithaca or Will Ship at Buyer's cost. Please send me a PM or call or text at 607. 793. 7317 if interested. Thanks, Kyle
  3. Just ordered a Trollmaster 2. I found all the reviews that I could for the two and it seemed like the reviews were slightly higher for the Trollmaster. I also like the idea of the more precise digital readout on the Trollmaster 2 instead of trying to find the exact spot on the knob for the Con Trollking.
  4. Seneca and Cayuga give you a pretty wide variety of fish to target. IMO Seneca is generally better for landlocked salmon and Rainbows, but Cayuga has those, an occasional Brown that time of year, plus very good laker action trolling or vertical jigging.
  5. Definitely worth bringing the boat. June is a very good time here in the Finger Lakes. Some lakes are better than others for Landlocked Salmon and Rainbows, but you will find good trolling in any of the larger lakes in June. Which lake you thinking about?
  6. Hi, I've got some cosmetic-only gelcoat repairs that I would like to have done on my boat. I've done it before and I've used Marine-Tex before, but I honestly just don't have the time to do it myself this year. Does anyone recommend a guy or a place not too far from Ithaca? I am hoping for someplace with indoor facilities so I can get this done soon and be out on the water in March. Thanks in advance for any recommendations! Kyle
  7. I just went through this decision-making process and decided on a bracket that will also allow me to steer remotely. I have not yet tested it out, but I did contact people out west (company is in UT, so that is where most of their customers are), including a dealer who has been installing these for a long time. Everyone seems to love it, so I think it might be worth considering: http://remotetroll.com/ Kyle
  8. New Tires and a Lower Price. I'm ready to move this boat out of my driveway. No surprises -- just a great multipurpose boat in very good condition. Give me a call.
  9. I just bought a motor like this, but here was my backup option: http://www.ebay.com/itm/150926504831?ss ... 1423.l2649 I am not selling that motor and have no interest in it, I just thought it looked like a good option if my local deal did not work out. I hope maybe this helps you out. Kyle
  10. Nice buck and a great memory for you and the boys! Congrats.
  11. I'm looking to buy a dependable used 4 stroke kicker. It can be anywhere between 8-15hp, but needs to be high thrust if it's less than 9.9hp. I can use either 20" or 25" shaft because I have not picked a specific mounting bracket yet. It must have an alternator to keep my battery charged, but does not absolutely have to be electric start (for example, I know Honda manual start 8 and 9.9 still produce 6amps). Please send me a PM if you have one to sell. Kyle
  12. OK, so I would like to move this boat out before winter. I've dropped the price down below its value and will be adding new tires to the trailer within the next week. This boat has always been ready to fish or ski, but now the trailer will be ready to tow as far as you like, too! Clean title and registration in hand -- ready for immediate possession and will be very easy to store and then use when you get a nice winter day. This boat is versatile, in very good condition, always properly maintained, and ready for the water. I have receipts and records for all the service and extras I've added. It comes with the following features/components: 2000 Mercury 90hp w/Oil Injection -- extremely reliable and well-maintained 1999 B&S Sportsman Galvanized trailer (new tires, winch, bunk glides, and rollers) Removable snap-in bow and seat cushions Bimini Top Depth/Fishfinder/GPS Combo 6 In-Gunnel/Gunnel Mount Rod holders 8 Interior Rod Holders Livewell Trolling plate Wired For A Bow Mount Trolling Motor Wash-down system No wood, no rot construction VHF Radio Keel Guard (pull your boat right up on shore without damaging the hull) Bow and cockpit covers Lightweight -- very easy to trailer and launch Extremely low maintenance -- no carpeting to replace or wood to worry about rotting. You can troll down below 2.0 mph with the trolling plate or, with two riggers and a couple divers out you don't even need the plate to get down that low. I can troll all day on about 5-6 gallons of gas. The 90 Merc moves this boat at about 35 mph and has a great hole shot for pulling a skier. A great boat for the Finger Lakes, Oneida, Chautauqua, and any inland lake. Not good for every single day on Erie or Ontario, but if you watch the weather you can certainly do it safely. The boat can be cut in half and still float, plus it has a great drainage system. It's been cleaned up more since the pictures. I will add new ones soon. Please respond to this listing via PM or call me at (6_zero_7) Seven_9_Three_7_three_1_7. Kyle
  13. Very likely to attend and bring a few things to sell or trade.
  14. Anyone know or have a link to all the final results? I'm curious to see if and how hard I should be kicking myself...
  15. My buddy called me this afternoon to see if I wanted to give it a shot once the rain slowed or stopped and I could not resist. We launched from Myers at about 4:30pm and trolled until dark. We went 3/4, landing three good fish, including a personal record rainbow. We caught a 7lb laker, a 3lb smallmouth, and a 23" 5 1/2 lb rainbow, pictured below. Unfortunately, I did not enter the tournament this weekend, after striking out big time at the two I did enter earlier this summer. Oh, well... Good luck to all of you fishing tomorrow.
  16. Thanks, Bob. I've had success some early mornings, but never in the evening. I had only tried jigging in the evening a couple times before, so I figured that was too small a sample size to conclude that evenings aren't great for jigging. Maybe that is the case, though... I guess I will stick to trolling when I get out in the evening. Kyle
  17. Well, a friend and I have been talking about doing more jigging, so this evening after work a group of four of us went out after work to give it a try for a few hours. The good news -- we did not get rained on; we found some fish;and we had some fun. The bad news -- we only managed 1 fish total in the three hours we fished (a healthy 24" laker). The fish were there, but the waves made it tough to maintain good bottom contact and even when we were able to dangle our jigs in front of their noses, they did not want to bite. We tried white tubes, white paddle-tails, silver jigging spoon, chartreuse and white paddle tails, white shakers, silverish tubes, bucktail jigs, etc... We marked a pretty steady supply of fish on bottom in 80-95 fow just north of AES and then we marked bait and some suspended fish out in front of AES. Surface temps were about 75 degrees.
