  1. I'm planning on getting the yak out the next few weeks, and will probably be on the water before April 1st Always always always have the right safety equipment when you're in a yak - Although the "120 degrees" rule is is a good guideline, you really need to take into consideration the water temperatures and dress accordingly - no matter your skills or comfort level in a yak, you need to be prepared for immersion. **A PFD is mandatory Nov 1 - May 1 in NYS ** My personal guidelines on how I dress based on water temperatures < 60 ° Dry suit with appropriate layers underneath 60-70 ° frog tog waders with top appropriate for air temps > 70 ° shorts / lightweight pants with top appropriate for air temps Any time I'm kayaking alone, the PFD is on me, with a whistle attached. I kayak alone a lot of times, and on lakes like Candice and Hemlock you really need to be self-sufficient if you do happen to go into the drink - I don't go overkill with safety gear, but I'm definitely prepared if something goes bad. It pains me to see some of the recreational kayak noobies on these lakes go out in the spring when the air is 70 ° and the water is only 40 ° with no thought to what can happen. Especially when they take the PFD (still wrapped in the factory plastic) and stuff it in the dry well instead of wearing it. I've personally had 2 close calls in my life with cold water immersion, and being in the fire service for ~30 years, been involved in several rescues and unfortunately a few recoveries, so I am a bit cautious - but rightly so; I want to be around next week and next year for my wife and kids.

  6. Like the idea of the electronics in the square bucket - never seen that before. What type of battery are you running on that ?
  7. As a kayaker on the finger lakes, my head is on a constant swivel watching out for things like this.. even on Canadice & Hemlock Wow - talk about being clueless, if the lawsuit does go to a civil jury, that statement to the media won't help his case...
  8. had a piece of 3/4 " PVC conduit laying around - couple of set of holes in it, so the depth is adjustable.
  9. TTT - 688 and transducer is sold. 597 & Yankee Troller's shuttle would make an inexpensive ice machine.
  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. I trailer my kayaks and went thia used jet ski trailer route. Found mine on Craigslist for $200, then bought crossbar brackets drom malone trailer. I'll post some pictures when I can pull them off the home computer. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. I'll take the 10 color. Private message on the way. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. 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.
