  1. we have found if you place a wet towel and wrap it around the antennae ( looks like a spring) on the boom it provides better continuity for the reading. Ussually needed when fishing deeper. Hope this works for you.
  2. would you consider a lower price for this probe?
  3. The bird with the orange throat is a blackburnian warbler, not sure why it was trying to cross LO
  4. Regarding Owasco being clean, you should look at the DEC fishing guide and you'll see Owasco has high concentration of mercury and it has advisories to limit the amount of fish eaten for certain species. I've been told by a DEC official the mercury came from the fallout of the coal burning plants in the west.
  5. did anyone notice the lack of bait fish this year. Either we missed it or is it way down, Years past we'd see plenty but not much this year
  6. Looking for a secure place to leave my boat in the Oswego area from May to August. I trailer now and would like to store in the Oswego area to save on wear. With the equipment in the boat this would need to be secure and preferable in a locked area.
  7. Thanks again guys, I agree with Fat Trout and HBC, looking at a new Yamaha 150HP 4 stroke. - Lake O is an ocean and having a reliable motor that will last years seems like a smart choice. Appreciate all the input and help.
  8. Thanks for all the help, I am leaning towards getting a new motor; I had this motor at a Marina for 8 weeks and they couldn't figure it out. I wasn't to impressed with the Marina and the way they handled the whole event. I won't say who they are but wouldn't recommend going there unless its to change plugs and lower gear oil. I talked to Hank at L&M and he won't touch these motors and I appreciate him being honest on this. Wish the other Marina was as trustworthy.
  9. Appreciate the advise, the motor is still at the Marina and can't figure it out. The last attempt is to replace a capacitor which may be done tomorrow. Does anyone know of a repair shop that has a scan tool? I contacted Hank at L&M and he can't help on this one.
  10. Thanks to all for responding. Any chance you would have Hank's phone #?
  11. Thanks, compression is good, no problem there
  12. Bought a 1999 Lund this year and went against all the advise posted here not to purchase without confirming the motor working. ; Learned that lesson.. This boat has a 1999 Evinrude 225HP Ficht, Was repaired at a Marina and took it out on Saturday. Ran good out but when we came in the engine had no power after 1/4 throttle. Sort of skips after 1/4 throttle. The mechanic is young and most likely not an expert on this engine. A few questions: 1. is there an experienced mechanic out there that is familiar with this engine that can work on it preferably in the Syracuse area? 2. Knowing this is an older engine I have a few choices - is it worth fixing and having confidence it will operate without issue or should I consider looking at getting a different engine. I know these engines have a history. Perhaps a mechanic that is familiar with these may be the best option.
