    Canandaigua Lake
  1. Was down there a few years ago, and was launching the kayak from the yard next to the old power plant. One of the locals stopped by to chat. Thought he was going to give me a hard time for launching there; instead helped me carry the yak down the hill to the lake. Told me I was more then welcome to use the boat launch- its not private, but town managed. Also said as long as I'm respectful of the lawns, there’s now problem parking to the north. Returned the favor by helping him pull a few docks out in the fall. Following those rules, the locals have always been friendly when I've been there. Like Bulletbob said, it definately a launch for smaller boats. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Stopped in to the shop this AM and picked up the maximum allowed per customer. 6 spoons - 2 hammered, 2 silver\silver and 2 sliver\bronze. 6 spoons @ $33.00 plus tax, so out the door $35.48. Individually wrapped in tissue paper and placed in a small paper bag for the ride home. Chatted for a few minutes, they said yesterday was a bit hectic, with lots of folks walking in and phone orders happening. They did say that they only have 1 phone line and it also runs the credit card machine, so if calling in an order, don't get frustrated if you get a busy signal. Also, they will ship, didn't ask the cost, but my guess is it would be very reasonable. Didn't say who was doing the plating, just said it was being done locally - Overall the plating seems to be high quality, and highly reflective. All spoons with soldered rings and treble hooks (not sure if singles hooks are an option). I'll try to post picks of the spoons later if I get a chance. For those of you able to make the drive, I would highly suggest it; the character and ambiance of the store is the same today as it was 30 years ago when I was a teenager.

  5. Looking for a trailer for an older 15 ft. Starcraft boat. Boat is currently on a snowmobile trailer, and want to get it onto an appropriate trailer to move it around the yard. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Have for sale 2 Humminbird fish finders. Although these are legacy units and no longer manufactured, they are in excellent condition, with the latest software available from Humminbird website installed. SD card reader works on both units, no map chip included with purchase. Each unit also includes a black UC 3 snap-on hard cover. Units are compatible with XNT 9 20 Transducer or XI 9 20 Ice Ducers. Both units have been used on a kayak, so they have been exposed to a bit more water splash then a unit located in the cockpit of a boat, but they have been wiped down and air dried after each use. No salt water - only the fresh clean water of the Finger Lakes. These units have very low hours and are in excellent condition, so the price is firm. Prices do not include shipping, and I do accept pay pal. Located in Canandaigua, will travel within reason to meet-up if interested. Humminbird 597ci HD Combo. $350.00 Dual beam only - NO down imaging color 640V x 480H 4.5" display Internal GPS 148 hours total use No transducer or mount included This unit has been used on the ice with a soft case and ice ducer. Humminbird 688ci HD Combo $300.00 Dual beam only - NO down imaging color 480H x 640V 5" display Internal GPS 41 hours total use No transducer or mount included Also have for sale, complete transducer and MS mounting kit and XNT 9 20 Transducer that has never been used. Asking $100 for the the complete kit.

  13. If you're looking to drop the boat in the canal, the park at Widewaters between Port Gibson and Newark gives you a good stretch of water to fish without having to traverse any locks. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Congratulations - great fish Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Totally agree with you guys - can't beat the tranquility of either of these two lakes. Been spending a lot of time on them the past few years in the yak. Doesn't matter if it's family time with the wife and daughters, fishing solo, or date night with the wife, it's all the same escape from real life for a few hours. Wife and I went on a couple of nighttime paddles on Canadice during the full moons last year, looking forward to doing it again.
