  1. I'll keep that in mind. I have a couple of possibilities going right now but I will circle back if they fall through. Thanks Jack
  2. So I got my old 18' Blue Fin back from the friend I sold it to some years ago. Unfortunately he ran it over some 1000 Islands granite. A fair amount of the skeg is missing, the shaft looks bent and the prop is history. I am looking for a lower unit for it. The engine is not original but I think it is around a 2002. Hoping to be perch jerkin from it this fall. Thanks
  3. I'm sure most people do a better job at checking their hitches than I did. But just in case, here is a friendly reminder to check your hitch before you pull out for the season. I noticed my trailer was riding low in the front a month ago when I brought the boat back out to Port Bay. Looked underneath and crapped myself. This is what I found today when I pulled it off to replace it. 4,200 lbs of boat plus gas, gear and the trailer. This could have been BAD.
  4. Just an FYI for anyone who might fish or cruise out of Port Bay. Stay clear of the break wall out towards the end of the channel. A lot of gravel and sand has been getting pushed in there and the water level has dropped substantially. There is basically a gravel and sand shoal along the wall. Stay in the middle and don't try to go through when another boat is in there. The gravel and sand are about 10 ft. out from the wall and the depth is about 1.5 ft. We found out the hard way Sunday. The 2 guys with me had to jump out and push us off. Easy to see in the afternoon on the way back in but in the morning I didn't see it.
  5. I thought there was an adjustment potentiometer on the backside of the head. I could be wrong though. Either way, find the speed on the sub troll you are catching fish at and reproduce that as a base to start from each time out. The specific reading doesn't so much matter as the ability to consistently reproduce your most productive speed(s).
  6. Nice job Al. Let me know when you have an open seat on a weekend. Or come on out to Port Bay some weekend.
  7. Poor guy got tangled up in some bird netting so I had to carefully cut him free. He eventually went on his way. I thought water snake at first too due to the wetlands back there. I accidentally chopped another one to pieces with the mower last weekend. The snakes are all over my property this year.
  8. Trying to figure out what my garden buddy is. Anyone know their snakes?

  11. North end has been open to the lake. My old 18' Blue Fin would go under that bridge with ease. Launch is useable, saw a boat going out recently.
  12. I have one of these models, what is the damage that occurs? I am at 145,000 now. Still runs great but it would be good to know what to watch out for. Thanks
  13. Sucks man! Was this Sutters again? It kind of looks like it. Mine got cooked there 3 years ago the same way, boat next to mine caught fire on 4th of July. The same deal, no insurance on any other boats involved. My insurance totaled the boat and I bought it back fairly cheap. I used Fast Forward Fiberglass repair in Brewerton. They are a long ways away but did really nice work. Although it took a long time for them to get it done. I mainly used them because everyone else either did not want to touch it or wanted too much money. They had also done prior work on the boat for the previous owner. They did my work for less than half of your estimate and it looks like the extent of my damage may have been worse. When all was said and done I pocketed a decent chunk of cash too. It might be worth a try with them. Matt is the owners name. I have more pics of the boat when the repairs were in process if you want to see what their work looks like underneath the gel coat and all. Good Luck!
  14. We were out Sunday between Port Bay and Fair Haven and it was slow. 1 king about 20-22 lbs on a mirage fly behind a white and UV paddle. It was around 170 fow on a large diver back about 180'. Roughly 60' down. Most of the bait and marks we saw were around that 170 fow area. Fished from 150 to 250. Hope things pick up.
  15. This was caught in Sandy Pond so i am guessing Bowfin. I did not think Snakehead were in Great Lakes.
  16. I would like 5 of the 13 packs. Tnx
  17. I'm not sure if he bought it new or not. We were talking about it this weekend and he said he had another picture of it in which he could almost make out the serial but not quite. I'm not sure if he will bother trying to do any CSI work to enhance the image or not. It is a unique canoe with the storage compartments, oar locks and rod holders. Hoping that might be enough to identify it but the cops won't do anything without the numbers.
  18. One of the guys I fish with had his fishing canoe stolen from his back yard in Sea Breeze. He discovered it gone last Monday. 15'7" Rogue River canoe with oar locks and oars, red with white interior. It was behind his house on a dead end street so whoever did it was probably local or had local knowledge somehow. Much appreciated if anyone sees one go up for sale if they could let me know. The picture isn't the best but it gives a rough idea. Unfortunately he did not have the serial number recorded. Thanks
  19. I am looking for a company or individual that can pull a 28' 5th wheel camper from Walworth to Port Bay. The big catch is I do not have plates for the camper so a dealer/transport plate is needed. I got a quote from a national service and their minimum was a little steep at $500.00. I had it moved from Webster to Walworth 2 years ago for $125.00. The seller arranged the transport and has forgotten the service that moved it unfortunately.
  20. I had a similar problem with my 4.3 Alpha One. Drove me crazy for months. Turned out there was some corrosion in the lower unit that was letting exhaust gases into the water intake. I could stay below 3000 rpm all day no problem but as soon as I went above that my temp would spike and fluctuate heavily.
