  1. The schute has been the same for the 25+ years I've been going to Fair Haven. Everything needs repaired eventually. What will this do to the boat traffic this season? Will they have to close the schute to repair it?

    Advice on a new rig

    Hi everyone, I've had my eye on a 2006 Sea Pro 238 walkaround. I was wondering if anyone has one or if anyone has any knowledge about these boats. It has a 2006 Yamaha TXR 250 4 stroke on it with about 1400 hours. I've had I/O's for a long time now and not sure what to be concerned about or ask about this engine. The dealer has a report or print out from the engine computer he's sending to me with service records he performed on this unit. I would appreciate any input everyone has. Thanks

    Fish hawk probe .

    I thought the same thing treerat. Bought one last year and it made a world of difference. Finding the right temperature was so quick and easy. When you change trolling direction was the biggest surprise. You can get right back to the speed the fish are wanting so much faster. Even the wife noticed how much more info it provided and admitted it was worth the money. That should be proof enough.
  5. Merry Christmas to you and your family Mr. Clean. Merry Christmas to all the folks in Fair Haven. Thanks for all the reports and great info throughout the year. Hopefully I will see some of you at the Niagra fishing show in January. Winter is just starting but it won't be long before we are all back out on lake Ontario going what we love.

    Leadcoe Backing

    Thanks for your help
  11. Does anyone know how much backing to use on Okuma Convector 30's for 8 and also 10 color cores? I know I can load the leadcore and then fill the spool with backing and reel it onto another reel. Just thought someone might know and would save me a step.This will be my first time to fish kings in the summer. We have only fished the spring in the past. We will be headed up to Fair Haven in 2 weeks. Can't wait. Thanks
  12. Thanks for the great reports. Heading up to Fair Haven in a few weeks.
  13. Great Job!!! To all who helped out our veterans. I wish lived closer. I wish more people would step up and help out like you folks did.
  14. Been up for the last 5 day. Did well when we had a good mud line but now it's gone and and you have to put in the time. It's been a great year for the kings in close. As others have said 20-30 fow down 10-15 ft. We have taken 1 or 2 everyday. All the kings on spoons and most of the browns on spoons also. Be up through the weekend hopfuly the weather gives us a break.
