  1. 4 stroke kickers winterizing

    I also run RV antifreeze thru the ear muffs. I bought a very large storage bin, a cheap 110V submersible pump and I put a 5 gallon pail in the bin...fill the 5 gallon pail with Non-Alcohol RV antifreeze and put pump in 5 gallon pail...turn on engine...turn on pump and now the RV antifreeze flows thru engine and recycles in large bin. Filter out bin and you can reuse RV antifreeze. I have tried the Camco DIY motor winterizer kit and it does not work as good as this set-up.
  2. Best 110v spool winder?

    I own the same line winder with line counter by South Chatam Tackle. I believe e-bay has them listed. This unit is awesome especially for level winds and my copper reels. I can spool copper and can even break your copper down by the foot and add some shrink tube at 100' marks. My best investment for lake fishing so far!
  3. Anybody own a Hewescraft Ocean Pro 220?

    Hewescraft and Alumaweld are the cats ass in aluminum boats. But the problem is I live in Central NY and the closest dealer is in Ohio as far as Hewescraft goes...and alumaweld dealer is even farther I believe. Please quote me if I am wrong. Kind of a deal breaker if you have to travel quite a distance for service.
  4. I have heard nothing but good from raymarine ev100 and now 150 owners.. they have been saying very reliable at salmon trolling speeds and in rough seas... has nmea2000 capabilities so can talk to many units out there for waypoint locations and tracks. This is the unit I will be buying.

  7. Replacing Line Counter on Marlin Electric HP

    Give fish307.com a call. They sell a ton of Cannon downrigger parts and the technician probably will talk to you and explain the fix...i have done that in the past with them...just be sure to order your parts from them...
  8. Dipsy's vs Slide Divers

    Slide diver makes a kit that comes with a heavier weight and a large ring...that should get down to depths desired. It is called U-Charters Slide Diver Ultimate Accessory Ring and Weight Set. Sold at many stores...Google it.
  9. 2-Cannon Mag 10HS's....Mint condition! I have 2 Cannon Mag10HS for sale. I am selling because my new boat came with 2 brand new cannon riggers. These riggers are mint and have both been totally rebuilt last year with new motors, computer boards, new motor housings and the clutch pads and thrust bearings/washers have been replaced and greased. Also, these riggers have been upgraded to the new power wires! These riggers are fast! With positive ion and auto stop at the surface. No cracks as well. Comes ready to fish with 2 swivel bases and mounts, power wires to battery, nuts and bolts and I even have 2 locks for these riggers which are very hard to find these days. I am asking $560.00 for both riggers. I live in Utica, NY. I can meet near Pulaski,Oswego area or in Utica area. Shipping will be extra and I will not ship overseas! When wiring these riggers make sure you use the right gauge wire. I am running 10 gauge closest to battery and 6 gauge to the other rigger on opposite side of boat. I have 100% + feedback as a seller on e-bay and sold thousands of dollars in equipment. Go to e-bay and click advanced search on right top of page and search by find a member on left side of page near the bottom and type northeastgreatoutdoors...click on my feedback and check as a seller. This will show you I am an honest person and not a fraud.
  10. Fly storage?

    I bought 1/2" closed cell foam in black. I cut foam in squares to fit whatever size box you use...I am using a rubbermaid box. Cut notches in top and bottom of foam and wrap leader around foam and hook stays in bottom of foam. To protect fly i bought 3/4" clear tubing from Lowes and cut pieces and now you can slide down to protect fly. This container will hold over 80 rigs and is nice and compact.
  11. Tying a trolling fly

    Tied hundreds of flies. I use double sided permanent scotch tape...very easy...I can whip them out and never had a problem coming apart trolling. i put a couple wraps of thread and coat in hard head cement....done.
