  1. Based on some feedback I got, price has been set at $475.00 obo. Does anyone know of some good fly fishing sites I could advertise this on? There does not seem to be a ton of interest here.
  2. I am listing a Thomas and Thomas fly rod for a friend. She was cleaning out a deceased relatives house and found a Thomas and Thomas 9'6" 8 weight 3 piece fly rod. It was still in package, brand new never used. It had been won at a rod and gun club event years ago. I searched prices on the rod and found that similar rods made by T & T now go for $875.00. I saw one identical to this one on ebay for $500.00. I saw some advertised on the web for way lower but the sites seemed pretty shady to me. Looked more like someone fishing for financial info. I do not know what the rod was valued at when new. I am putting this up on a best offer basis. Ultimately it is not my decision on what an acceptable price would be. I may only offer her some advice on any offers that seem to be extreme low balls. If anyone has any idea what what the fair market value is on these now I am all ears, please PM me. Sorry the pics aren't the best. I didn't take them they were sent to me. Rod is in the Rochester/Irondequoit area. She also has 4 outboards that I will list when I get more info on them. 1 looks like antique. Chrysler Econo Mate 3.5 hp.
  3. VooDoo, if you search "sub troll probe" on ebay they have them new from Big Blue Enterprises. They run you $200.00 but you should get the break away cable, tape, crimps, etc with it.
  4. Fished the Fair Haven Challenge out of Port bay Saturday. Definitely seemed bigger than the 1-3 that was forecast to me. I was thinking more like 2-4 maybe 3-5 to start. Couldn't buy a fish for the first 2.5 hrs except a couple short bites. Finally found some action around 140fow 100 down. Green Dolphin spinny and green hammer flies and meat on Minion rigs. Rigs were custom made to look as close as possible to the chromeo pattern. (not making the chromeo any more). Looked like we may have a chance at a decent box when we doubled up on a couple screamers. One gets into the down rigger cable that we failed to clear, gone with a new meat rig and a spinny. The other pulls the hook, gone. Not much time left after that and we only had 4 in the box. We decided that it wasn't worth weighing in a 4 fish box in a 6 fish tourney and we would just keep fishing for an LOC fish since the sun came out and the lake laid down. Put a couple more in the boat and called it a day. Good time either way.
  5. Oh, I probably misunderstood. I don't even know why they keep the full season's pass as an option after the spring derby. Good Luck!
  6. The season pass covers spring, summer and fall for $110.00. With spring and summer gone just buy the fall pass for $40.00 or you are paying almost triple.
  7. Thanks for the replies. The situation was such that turning to starboard didn't seem like an option at the time. I probably waited too long to make that move. I definitely acknowledge that I was giveway. The radio was undoubtedly the answer. There wasn't any sort of confrontation involved. I think we both sped up at the same time and then tried slowing at the same time and then ran out of time. With no worries about long lines the situation never happens. In trying to be considerate of his lines, I probably made the wrong choice.
  8. While we are on the discussion of right of way etc, I ran into a situation a few weeks ago. I was trolling east to west and encountered another boat trolling north to south. I understand myself to be the giveway vessel in that situation. My maneuver should be to turn to my starboard and go behind the other vessel (as I understand it at least). But the other vessel has boards out and I am, to be safe, assuming 300', 400', or even 500' coppers out. Turning behind him may cause a mess. I ended up trying to speed up and scoot in front of him because I did not have any long lines out at the time. We ended up in a never ending side by side causing both of us to head southwest for what seemed like forever. I should have jumped on the radio but didn't. What does everyone else understand to be the correct action in that case? Thanks
  9. You're on fire man! Nice work on the solo double.
  10. Thank you! I always forget about the facebook thing. Don't normally use it.
  11. Ran a two man crew on Saturday between Port Bay and Fair Haven. Definitive temp break at 50 ft. 5 for 9 with a steelie and 4 kings. Kings were 24, 22 and 19 and 6 or so. 70-80 down over 125-140 on meat. The Minion Carbon 14 started it and the Chromeo behind a sea sick wadler spinny did the rest. Warrior bird of paradise took one steelie and dropped another on the wire about 50 down. Had a blast with two of us in traffic and fish on. Amazingly not a single crossed up line all day. Can't say enough about those Minion rigs. They were producing well for us last year for the time we had in the water. Started getting hot out and we decided we had enough filleting to do already so we headed back in around noon. .
  12. Well it took a year but we're back on the water. The boat was back in the water on the exact same weekend as its last trip out in 2018 before the fire. I had the work done at Fast Forward in Brewerton. He is very busy so it took a little longer than I hoped but the work was top notch. Boat looks factory showroom where the damage was and they also cleaned up some odd scuffs and scratches here and there. We are just getting familiar with the new home in Port Bay but the boat is catching fish already. Good to be back on the water. In light of the events I am considering a name change to The Phoenix. On a side note, I heard that some morons were doing the exact same dumb crap, only at South Point instead of Sutter's, this year on the 4th with the fireworks. Launching them across the marina. It's like people think because the boats are on the water that they cannot catch fire. Maybe a quarter stick up their asses would get the point across.
