  1. you will find many of the browns have lampreys attached, I'd say 50% of the browns caught this year have lampreys. Some have 2 or 3 attahced. It seems the lamprey treatments were cancelled during a few years of covid and we are now seeing the results. They are all in the 6-8 inch length and we'll see what the future will bring as they spread into the system.
  2. Thanks for sharing. I have an oak which is almost twice the size of the one shown above. It's location saved it from logging years ago, being next to the neighbors border and down a very steep hill Often wonder how old the tree is and it won't be cut as long as we own the property.
  3. I will have a trailer available around the end of March first part of April. It is currently on my Lund baron and I'm purchasing a new trailer as soon as the weather allows it to be transported. Its an Eagle and all lights, brakes ete work, Brand new tires were put on it last Spring. Located just south of Manlius, NY.
  4. Looking at purchasing a Load-Rite Trailer. Any reviews pro or con on this type trailer. It's galvanized steel with wood bunks/carpeted, torsion axles. Thanks for any responses.
  5. Looking for someone that could replace the flooring in a Lund Baron around the Syracuse area. If possible would like the person to repair as it sits in storage in my barn. If this isn't possible then at a remote location.
  6. keep posting reports like this and you'll find more boats hitting the lake, Sometimes its best to keep things to yourself.
  7. any update on the status of Owasco, launching at Emerson and is there a 5mph limit still in place?
  8. We have found, especially when fishing depths, to wrap a wet towel around the wire on the rigger boom.
  9. no better fishing than an isolated Adirondack lake.

  11. could you call me at 315-575-6304, thanks
  12. Thanks to all. Sounds like Hank is the one. Will call him shortly to get this started. Won't be long and we'll be out there.
  13. Thanks, would you have an address and phone# for Hank?
  14. Looking to put an auto pilot on my Lund Baron with Yamaha outboard. In doing some research there are many options and I prefer to use the advice of an expert to insure the system is done correctly. Any suggestions on who to contact to review options and also to install the unit.
  15. have used Fish Wish Taxidermy located outside of Pulaski. Maggie does a great job and has been in business for many years
  16. Would t you be interested in renting for a Friday through Sunday?
  17. looks to be a tooth of a squirrel, either red or gray.
  18. Enjoy his music but if you look at the life style of many of these stars, they don't exactly meet a high standard. Glad he wasn't my father. Eddie struggled with alcoholism and drug abuse. He began smoking and drinking at the age of 12, and he stated that he eventually needed alcohol to function.[69] Eddie entered rehabilitation in 2007,[70] and later shared in an interview that he had been sober since 2008.[69] Suffering from lingering injuries from past, high-risk, acrobatic stage performances and crashes, Eddie underwent hip replacement surgery in November 1999, after his chronic avascular necrosis, with which he was diagnosed in 1995, became unbearable.[71] Eddie began receiving treatment for tongue cancer in 2000. The subsequent surgery removed roughly a third of his tongue. He was declared cancer-free in 2002.[72] He blamed the tongue cancer on his habit of holding guitar picks in his mouth, stating in 2015: "I used metal picks – they're brass and copper – which I always held in my mouth, in the exact place where I got the tongue cancer. ... I mean, I was smoking and doing a lot of drugs and a lot of everything. But at the same time, my lungs are totally clear. This is just my own theory, but the doctors say it's possible."[73] In 2012, Eddie underwent an emergency surgery for a severe bout of diverticulitis.[74] Recovery time required due to the surgery led to postponement of Van Halen tour dates scheduled in Japan.[75] Eddie was later hospitalized in 2019 after battling throat cancer over the previous five years.[76] He died from the illness on October 6, 2020, at the age of 65.[77][78][79]
  19. 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.
  20. The bird with the orange throat is a blackburnian warbler, not sure why it was trying to cross LO
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
