  1. Here's a link to another Eagle nest at Berry College in Mount Berry, GA This one has 3 different cams to view. http://www.berry.edu/eaglecam/
  2. The ramps only extend to the end of the docks. At the ends of the ramps there are cement like railings to help prevent you from backing the trailer in past the end of the ramps. If you back in over these railing, you may have one helX of a time getting back out without damaging your trailer. I saw one guy last year rip the whole axle off of his trailer.

  8. Church claims you can use their boards with lead core without any damage. That's been my experience. Plus they are the easiest to remove do to the pin retention on the end instead of another release type device.
  9. I use TX-22's with lead core all the time. Sometimes I let it all out and and clamp on the mono backing and other time I just partially let it out and clamp on the core. I have release set very tight so it does not release or run down the line. I usually fish alone so it can be a little tricky to get the board off with a large fish on. If there are two of you, it's no problem at all IMO. Otherwise, I have never had a problem with this method. The core is still in great shape.
  10. Quite day for me as well. Had (3) rods (I was alone) out; rigger with slider, wire with SD & fly and 5 core with crank. Setup in about 120 feet with some screen action and trolled out to 280 feet with almost no screen. Changed rigger spoons, wire SD & fly and core crank after about 1 1/2 hours. Headed into shallower water. Picked up (2) small Kings 8- 10 pounds on Carbon 14 off of rigger at 65 over 140. Wind picked up slightly from East and that was it. Still decent screen but no action.
  11. Last time I looked they had them in Gander Mtn.
  12. Honeoye looked like a bowl of Split Pea Soup. The entire lake was green with small pods (the size on pin heads) floating all over. If you picked your line up off the water it left a trial. Caught one nice Large Mouth and left after a hour or so. What a mess my boat was. I had to wash it off when I got home. Luckily it hadn't hardened on before I got to it. Now I remember why I haven't been there in over 3 years.
  13. Fished Canandaigua on Monday AM for 3 1/2 hours. Dropped in around 80 feet in front of German Bros. Trolled south weaving in/out form 80 to 150 feet. Trolled to about Wegmans' place and crossed over to Pelicans point and headed north for about 2 miles. Picked up one Laker, about 7 pounder, half way to Wegmans'. Hit a free slider watermelon spoon on a 48 rigger. Had one other hit on rigger but nobody home. Ran rigger at 40-50 feet with slider, 5 core and wire w/SD & fly. Marked a ton of fish from 20 feet down to about 50 feet and a few bottom dwellers. Picked up a small amount of fleas on wire and core. Not bad but they're starting.
  14. This is a slightly used Honda Outboard Propeller. It is model # C3X 11.1x14 HQ AL Prop. I had this prop on a 2012 40 HP 4-stroke EFI Honda for a few weeks but decided on another pitch for my application. The blades are in perfect/new condition. The only marks in the paint are on the edge of the exhaust hub from tools used to remove the cotter pin and nut. Please see attached pictures. Included is the original Honda box that the prop was shipped in.
  15. SOLD Have a pair of Off Shore In-Line Planer Boards for sale. Included are both a right OR12R and a left OR12L boards. Asking $28.00 for the pair These are used but not abused. They are in great shape and are in the original packaging. Location is Irondequoit If interested please respond by PM or call George at 585-721-0636
  16. Tried many colors but now use all black.
  17. This is the Walleye Forum. This is a thread within that forum.
  18. I fished West out of I-bay this AM. From Russel to about a mile west of Crescent Beach in 20-30 feet. First time in that area for me. Most of the water was reasonably clear after about 1/2 mile west of the river, especially compared to off of I-bay. I went out 3 miles from I-bay and was still in brown water at 70 feet deep. The bite was a little slow but consistent. A fish about every 1/2 hour. All Salmon, biggest about 15# and a couple three skippers. Sticks off in-lines (both fire tiger pattern) one out 100 and another on single core. Rigger at 18' pulling a DW spoon in Bloody Nose. Every rig caught fish.
  19. I have a used, like new mint condition, Standard Horizon GX1600 Radio in black for sale. I purchased it new at West Marine on July 2, 2012. It is under factory warranty until July 2, 2014. The original sales receipt will be included. It is flawless and has never been exposed to the elements. My boat is garage stored year around. The original box and all the accessories are included. I paid $169.95 plus tax. I'm asking $89.00 If interested please contact me through LOU or call me on my cell at 585-721-0636
  20. You can buy them at the I-bay launch when the county starts manning the launch, which is usually around May 1. Dan, who runs the I-bay launch, told me last year that the pass is good for both the bay and river. The senior pass was $65.00 last year.
  21. I also ave a Rebel 1650 XL Sport. I have (4) Bert's Ratchet Rod Holders mounted to Bert's tracks. The tracks are held on by Lund aluminum down rigger mounting attachments, which I purchased from my local Lund dealer. These fit into the Lund gunnel track system. I modified the aluminum rigger holders by cutting down the width to the same size as the Bert's tracks and drilling and tapping a few 1/4-20 holes for the track bolts. See the attached pics. This is rock solid. If you grab a rod holder and pull real hard the whole side of the hull will flex just slightly. These rod holders are great for running in-line boards and dipsy divers. You just grab the rod and tilt it up/back towards the boat and pull the rod straight up and out. I tried some Traxstech mounts but they were no wheres near as solid and they marked/removed some paint on my gunnels. They had a lot of sharp edges.
  22. I was in Gander a few days ago looking for some A-Tom-Mik Flies. They had them priced at $9.95. Across the street Dick's has them priced at $7.49 Makes me wonder about other prices at Gander. Do I have to price check everything before buying at Gander??
  23. My prayers are with your wife, you and the girls. God Bless!
