  1. Usually it is but lately its been hit or miss. The inconsistent weather has made it tough. Fish ledges and flat shallows with finesse and jigs. Live bait works well, crayfish or large minnows. Sent from my SM-N950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Been reading a lot on the new 6.8 Western. Any thoughts from anyone. They are talking long range energy of the 300 win mag with less recoil and better ballistics. Sent from my SM-N950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. That and the eyes in the winter...i can't believe they haven't instituted a slot limit for the winter. This is also coming from a guy that loves jigging them thru the ice. Sent from my SM-N950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. If they fish chaumont they could launch in chaumont or long point state park. If they want to fish stony or galloo they could launch out of the isthmus state launch. If they leave out of henderson we always used to fish bass and gull islands. If they are after smallies the drops and humps are usually most productive. As for etiquette, no one owns the water. I would recommended not running 50mph close to guys still fishing. Being a chaumont resident that's really the only thing that torques my shorts. We usually call those ones bassholes.

  5. Add another half hitch or loop the line then try it. Sent from my SM-N950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. I'll have to throw some in my plot next time im home Sent from my SM-N950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I know some mixes call for urea after it sprouts. You really need to do a soil test to see what you need to add for your plot mix. Not all mixes need the same thing. 1 thing I'm certain you'll need is lime and likely lots of it. Unless the soil has been worked yearly and maintained you'll need a lot of lime.

  8. I want to mention that Sea Star recommends keeping the power assist connected and should work in conjunction with it. I haven't noticed any ill effects by not having it hooked up but figured i would mention it. Sent from my SM-N950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Hey for anyone wondering the following is what i had ordered for the swap and hooking up my old autopilot: -2.4 Seastar helm (non sport it has to be for unbalanced cylinder) -Bravo 1 cylinder -SeaStar hoses (used old steering cable length for hose length) -Octopus SeaStar autopilot kit The ram went into the old cable steering housing. i cut and looped the old hoses to each other on the PS pump and the old assist ram. It is as easy or easier steering than my old outboard baystar setup on my old johnson 150. I used the octopus hoses because they were easy and clean. My autopilot is the Raymarine EV-100 hydraulic. It was real close to the cut off for the cc of the pump but i cant complain it has been doing great. Sent from my SM-N950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. That's not a hard fix for a decent welder a couple gussets and it'll be stronger than original. Onlu problem is if it's bad in 1 spot there are definitely others. I hate painted trailers with a passion. I don't understand why manufacturers use them. Well i do but it can't cost that much more for galvanized or aluminium.

  11. I dont have a horse in the race. When people talked about it i thought it was thru the tournament. Sent from my SM-N950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. The walleye we've caught had some in their bellies. Sent from my SM-N950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  14. Well guys i made the switch then ordered the idler and bracket for the non- power assist mercruiser to bolt in place. Right now i just have the power steering pump looped and the lines at the back on the assist ram looped as well. The steering is so easy now and the hydraulic auto pilot works great on the main and kicker. I'll post some before and after pictures when i get the new brackets bolted in. It'll be a couple weeks.

  15. Gene's the man, if anyone is going to catch you fish he will. Sent from my SM-N950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
