  1. Aluminum Haul Hard Top boats

    I was at the Harrisburg Pa sportsman show this year and one dealer had Thunder Jet boats. They are made out in Washington state. They are known for their jet boats but have a line made for outboard. I checked them out when I got home and they make some great looking hardtops and pilot house rigs. It's a long shot for me as well but that's the direction I'm leaning toward myself. Come on Power Ball numbers!!! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. I assume all the ramps are still closed in Fair Haven. Are their any updates as to when any of them will open? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. What a week of great fishing! Caught our limit of browns every day. The weather wasn't bad either. I was fortunate to get our boat in before the ramp closures. Most of the action was from the shore out to 20ft. The Browns were hitting on just about any color. Even mix between spoons and stick baits. I hope everyone can get out and enjoy the great fishing. Thanks to everyone at Bayside Marina. It's been stressful dealing with the high water I'm sure. But everyone was super friendly and helpful. Can't wait to come back again soon.

  4. Great work Mr.Clean!! I was out there with you today. Epic fishing the last couple of days. I wish everyone could get out there to enjoy it. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. As of last night the Coast Guard station ramp up in Sodus Bay was open but the town was dealing with flooding in many places. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Maybe the municipal ramp down in Oswego? That's about the only ramp I haven't heard anything about. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Thanks Mr. Clean for this thread. I've fished out of Fair Haven for about 25 years now. We don't hear much about Fair haven on here. I check out the thread often. Keep up the great reports! Paige386 and I will be up later this week. See you on the water.
  8. Nice!! We will be up in less than 2 weeks. Looks like the weather is starting to come around.
  9. mercruiser stern drive maintence

    chinook35 is right. Their are many seals in the entire outdrive I had the same issue 3 years ago. I started replacing parts one at a time with still finding water in the drive. Finally just had to bite the bullet and have the outdrive rebuilt. I was going to try it myself but as chinook35 said their are special tools to do the job. Their are also some tight tolerances that must be followed for reassembly. I like to do as much as I can myself. But in this case I left it for the pros. No more water issues and it runs great. Goo Luck!
  10. Spin Docs or Paddles

    thanks sk8man. I have always fished in the spring. Just what I was taught many years ago. I have been reading a lot of posts this year to maybe take a shot at fishing the late summer or fall next year. I appreciate you going the extra mile and explain things in a little more detail so some of novices can learn a few things.
  11. Favorite lure

    Like SK8man The Bomber long A is my go to lure. Also the Rapala J9's in blue and white seem to work well for me. As for spoon size in the spring I use the stinger size.
  12. Nice to hear a good report from Fair Haven. Going to be up in 2 week. Can't wait. Hope everyone has a good and safe season.
  13. trailer issue diagnosis

    I had the same problem a few years ago. We switched to radial tires and they are wearing much better. also like the other guys said check the bearings.
  14. Lost my boy yesterday

    Sorry to here about Parker. We lost our Cooper, a male black lab about a year ago. Your right, its sad that they are only part of our lives or a short time. They will live on in our hearts forever. Our vet told us a story about the rainbow bridge. Its the place in heaven where our pets go after they pass on. Its a place where they can run and play and do all their favorite things. They are waiting there until its our time to pass on and reunite with them when we cross the rainbow bridge. For now we can remember them and tell all the great stories and times we had with them. We will see our pals again some day in heaven.
  15. Hi troutman87, I want to send you a check to get 2 of your 12 pound torpedo weights. First I wanted to know if you have them and second how much are they and how much is needed for shipping? Thanks
