  1. TTT - 688 and transducer is sold. 597 & Yankee Troller's shuttle would make an inexpensive ice machine.
  2. TTT with a price drop - these things are taking up space in the garage. Either would make a great ice machine with the right case.
  3. Silver Streaks

  4. Registering a home made trailer

    Regarding homemade trailers - I've registered 2 trailers as homemade. 1st time - Had the trailer weighted empty on a certified scale, and presented most of the receipts (axle, tires, steel frame materials, etc.) to the DMV for their review approval. They didn't care about what was purchased, only that the sales tax was paid on materials I used. Quick and easy process and was out the door ~ 20 minutes. 2nd time - Same process, same DMV office, a few less receipts - Got into a disagreement with the DMV clerk because she didn't feel I had enough receipts to justify the trailer's existence. I ended up leaving that DMV office, went to another DMV office in a neighboring county with the same paperwork and was out the door again ~ 20 minutes. IMHO it's not about what materials you used to build the trailer, it's about NYS getting the biggest cut of sales tax they can.

  7. New York fishing license sales drop

    Pretry much sums it up - how many TV shows or internet videos show 20 seconds of sitting & calling to lure in a trophy buck, or 2 casts to catch a monster bass or trout ? I'm 46 years old - to me, hunting & fishing isn't necessarily about the end result, it's about the time spent in nature away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Something I'm trying to teach my 2 daughters. 3 year age difference (19 & 16), but what a difference in the two and their ability to deal with the whole "instant gratification" of today's society.

  8. Is there any natural spawning that happens in the little covers of the Bay or Vought creek ? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  10. Buddy and I spent about 3-4 hours out of turtle cove yesterday on the yaks. Lots of jumpers all around. No salmon hook-ups - caught and released quite a few large mouth bass. Surface temp was 66 & air was at least 72 - made for an enjoyable time on the water - and was able to even out the suntan on my toes.
  11. Any suggestions on where would be the best place to launch a kayak to target them in the bay ? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  13. DEC license rant

    Something that I've wondered about ever since the DEC went to the new licensing format years ago.... If I buy a sportsman license, why can't they print a single pane "fishing tag" like they do for all other carcass tags ? You could then carry that as your license. This is what I carry as proof of license, but the old traditional part of me has concerns that I'm carrying my receipt and not my license.

  15. Canadice action

    Kayak is a Hobie Outback SOT, and the rigger is a Scotty laketroller that mounts into gear head base. It's mounted on the gunnel right next to my right arm, and I can actually rest my arm on top of the reel when fishing, and adjust depth pretty easily. Replaced the wire with 300 ft of braid, and use a 4 lb weight with it - have actually used it as a anchor if it's not too windy. Here's a few pictures of it - the rod for the down rigger goes into the rocket launcher in front of it, and points out to the side of the boat when in use.
