  1. Considering keeping the boat in the water for the season but have never done it and could use some info and advice. For reference I have a Pro Line walkaround with a white bottom with a Suzuki outboard. Should the bottom be painted with bottom paint or can it be cleaned after the season? I've seen both ways. The other question I have is do you guys keep the motor up or down at the dock? Does it effect the motor keeping it up for 2 or 3 weeks at a time? Or will keeping it down let it get built up with green growth and mussels? I would love to be out every weekend but I know that won't happen due to life and weather getting in the way. Thanks for any thoughts or insight. Don't want to learn the hard way as usual.
  2. Very sorry for your loss. It's so hard to accept and digest right now. I can't imagine what you are feeling. She will live in your heart and memories till you meet again one day.

  4. At the last salmon school back in 2020 at the Niagara show I spoke to the head of the DEC (I forget his name at the moment) and he made the point that the goal was to have more 20-25 lbs fish than 30+ lbs fish like years ago. Using all the tools like managing the food supply to stocking programs. He was confident the data showed the health of the salmon fishery despite the objection of a number of us there. If I remember right after that show they announced the reduction in the Penn rearing project. Go figure. I will be going to the show this year and I would think the DEC will be there as well and intend to bring up these issues. Some of you may already have but he is interesting to talk to. They usually come to the meet and greet Friday evening and you get to talk to them individually in a small setting (which is really cool of them) and they are a little more talkative. We always hear about the science and the data. I wish they would take more input from the fishermen. Especially you character captains and veterans of the fishery. I don't fish as often as I like or as most of you folks but even my buddies and I notice the changes happening. Looking forward to the show and maybe see some of you folks there.

  5. I just installed an AP44 with my EVO2 this past spring. Installed it myself, with patience it's not difficult. Works great! Sent from my SM-G991U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. That's a great unit. I have a NSS9 and love it. Are you are looking for a bigger screen? Sent from my SM-G991U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Sterling canvas shop in Fair Haven do great custom work. It's an option but there probably is a place closer to you. I had an enclosure made there last year for my Pro Line 25 walk. Did a great job and reasonably priced. Very pleased. Sent from my SM-G991U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  9. Does anyone know if Harvey O'Hara is still making and selling his weights? Its been many years since I got some from him. I don't want to call and bother him if he isn't anymore. Thanks Sent from my SM-G991U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. We've been going a little west out the chute this week. 100-200 water is mixed up now, cold water moved in and only down about 60 ft. Some folks are getting some in there but you have to work it hard. Our best water has been 200-300. Spoons in blue have worked best for us. Sent from my SM-G991U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
