    Here's a good one

    No way to really stop it just deal or change direction of the troll. The slower you go the worse it gets.

    I just can't bring myself to eat bass when I can get myself some walleye or perch, the perch are on fire right now.

    What boat should I buy

    I think starcraft, starweld, smokercraft, and sun chaser have transferable hull warranty to 2nd owner. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Thru hull leak?

    Leave it on land and start to fill the bilge with a hose. Once you get some water in the bilge it should show you where it is coming from. I'm not sure how the stringers and bulkheads are laid out in the boat but could it be water trapped in spots that wouldn't usually allow to drain unless the boat is tossed around? Does the boat seem slower to plane, slower top speed, plowing in the water more? I ask because I wonder if the foam is draining slowly because it absorbed some water. Could be a handful of things but I would consider filling the bottom of the boat to see if water leaks out somewhere. Your thru hull fittings could be crack or the sealant is bad. I wouldn't think it would happen 11 years later but stranger things could happen.

    Anyone in the St. Lawrence and jefferson county area should contact their local law enforcement. Sad part is that it's a little late being the season opens this weekend. https://www.dec.ny.gov/about/696.html

    Bass ripped off the beds

    I can remember as a kid talking to my father about fishing for bass and his words have stuck with me all the years later. At that point it was illegal to target any species out of season. This C&R crap came about when bass tournaments started getting big. It doesn't help the fishery whatsoever, but I see all these guys even a friend of mine that loves to bass fish do C&R before the season (where it is legal). If you have that kind of passion for something, why try and jeopardize its future? Not really they just donate money I have never actually saw them do anything that helps. They just donate money to conservation where it lines someones pocket it doesn't ever make it back to the fishery. Maybe see if the state parks will "remind" people that come to launch and fish. With the introduction of invasive species like the gobies and similar all bass fishing on Lake ontario and its tributaries should be closed to C&R along with any other lakes where the goby is present. These little bastards will eat up a nest of eggs faster than anything else out there. I have had a big female at the end of my dock for years (no telling it is the same fish) and have watched these A$$hats throw all sorts of artificial lures trying to get bass. I'm happy they don't get close enough to my dock to pull her off the bed.

    Nope still illegal. My father in law tells me all the time that they used to be able to go out and catch 100+ bass on a good day now you're lucky to catch 5 or 6. These were all catch and release but still they would crush them. We went out 2 years ago and setup on them did well but those days are maybe once a season kind of thing. Usually late July is when they start to heat up but the fishing isn't what it used to be by any means.

    Yup they have been at it for the last 2 weeks over on my side of the bay. I think DEC needs to get out there and start ticketing, yelled out to a guy fishing in front of my dock bass fishing before the season is illegal in jefferson county all I got was a finger. Of course I returned the favor with what I really thought of them. I guess I could get a ticket for harassing a fisherman but worth it in the end.

    That just means they will repair it when it breaks it doesn't mean they are any good. There was a person here that had their boat fixed I would be doing some research. Last I knew there was a class action suit against Tracker about this. There isn't a plate aluminum that I would buy for under $30k. If you want plate aluminum look at the west coast builders and prices, there is a reason they cost so much. Sorry but I would never own a Tracker boat even if it was given to me. They are sub-par construction at best. The company knows they have issues but keep manufacturing them that way. I would be looking at Alumacraft, Starweld, Crestliner, SmokerCraft, Starcraft, all of these manufacturers are well known and have lifetime warranties. SmokerCraft and its subsidiaries have the best warranty in the industry, lifetime hull and structure with 6 years on all components, carpet, upholstery, and electronics. How about safety wise too, I wouldn't want to be on that boat when the haul splits. That could be a life or death situation.

    Late spawn

    They just throw the eyes back down the hole before the law gets to them. The hard part is being stealthy about it. When you see a guy heading straight at you on a sled for a couple minutes it kind of gives it away about who is coming.
