  1. Had new transom put in over winter. Pardon how screw ridden the back is. After reinstall the mechanic changed the location of the FF transducer on the left. Fish hawk is on right... The FF on left is higher and further left than before. Think I'm going to have an issue especially in wavy conditions?
  2. Monday report: fished south of long point weeds were so so. Enough to be annoyed but not awful. Fleas required line cleaning every 30 mins with 25 lb main line
  3. ok was debating between the 2 of them thank you
  4. I have an older 19.5 foot aluminum with outboard........ in the very back, where the transom meets the splash area there is some separation that causes leaking. Normal calk will fix this for some period of time but my guess due to trailering, the calk will eventually fail and if im trolling with the waves and it splashes over the back she will leak. The transom seems fine it just flexing causing this. Should I try using 3M 5200 for a longer fix?
  5. I dont want the truth to get in the way but isnt this Federal?
  6. I have an 87 sea nymph fish and ski with a 2011 90 HP e-tec Could anybody suggest a transom saver to purchase? Do you need to know the trailer model?
  7. Fleas are absolutely awful right now so be ready
  8. as of right now there are few and most of them are high in the water column
  9. Need to add some of the larger luhr jensen doders... send me a pm or add some pics here if ya have some sitting in your garage
  10. If he is able to own or operate any hunting or fishing related business after this it will just prove that conservation at the federal level is a sham
  11. short leadcore weighted lines with spoons and stickbaits they can actually be found all over the water column.. I personally like to have riggers deep and junk lines high and just cover all the water from 80 feet up
  12. im slightly concerned with the lack of 10-13 inch salmon normally catch 5-10 a trip
  13. By South end I'm guessing you mean the flat before the ledge? In that case yea it was an abnormality slow year but as was stated it went from ice to warm quickly and right at prime time there was that heavy rain that turned it to mud Our trips recently in the Myers and t falls area have been ok but fish are all over the water . I caught a lake trout on a stick bait over 220 fow yesterday and in 80 fow marked a fish on bottom and 2 seconds later the 78 rigger popped so figured well that's a laker and it was a 23 inch salmon wtf
  14. Dude I dont know who it is but this thing is absolutely mint and decked out to the 9's. Guy was fishing alone. I think he needs friends!
  15. Standing on our dock today south of long point you drove by in a new Duckworth looks to be Offshore model decked out to the 9's. Watched you catch a fish solo while the autopilot did the work. I'm very very jealous of your rig. It was like watching a rolls Royce drive by
  16. I think the string method really has some magic trick to to that gets that barb just right so it doesn't rip ya apart. It's pretty amazing
  17. I was going for that method at first but it was so deep there wasn't enough hook left to push through. The string method was the way to go. It was really awful, still had a crazy ass Atlanta attached to it when I got stuck
  18. Just thought I'd give some reassurance if you ever have a hook buried in ya really badly. The mono/sting rip out method is absolutely the way to go. Had a bad one in my hand Saturday and it took me an hr to man up and rip it out. Wish I did it instantly. No pain at all and did literally no damage to speak of. If you ever have it happen just do it and be glad it's over with. It feels like a leap of faith but it works
  19. I'm in Binghamton.. you can keep me on the list of possibly would tag alongs
  20. I have a supply of those in 28 and mag if ya need them
  21. You can always find lakers in 80 fow on the bottom
