  4. Jeff, I will wait for Rusty until Sunday AM. You are first in line if I do not get a response. I just want to be fair to Rusty, he had to look a long way back to find the original post. Thank you for looking yourself. MJ
  5. Rusty, I still have them. I had forgotten about as I was traveling quite a bit with my job. I was considering re-posting. Since you inquired, 60 $ for the whole lot. Throw in another 7 /bucks shipping and I will cover the rest. I can accept pay-pal. MJ
  6. If still available, I will take it. I live near Buffalo and could pick it up tomorrow.

  9. REPAIR or PARTS Motor - 1975 Mercury 3CYL 65HP Outboard This motor was purchased as a spare for a boat that was completely refurbished. That boat was recently sold. I bought it knowing it had a fuel leak. Had the motor running to locate and identify options for fixing. Had the motor checked at Presque Isle Sports in Erie PA. Had the Carbs rebuilt, Installed New Fuel Pump and Filter. Had the Water Impeller changed. And pressure tested lower unit. I had planned to change a gasket to repair fuel leak at some point in future. I have purchased another boat to refurbish and I will need a much bigger outboard for this one. The Merc 650 had very good and even compression in each cylinder (142 142 140). You can check it time of purchase, I have a compression gauge. If you are mechanical inclined, you will have a very nice motor when done. This motor will come with Power Cord- Controls- and a spare prop and fuel tank ( 6 gallon ). It has very low time on it, was in storage indoors for quite some time. I have priced motor so you can recoup your initial cost if you want to part it out. This motor has been properly stored indoors. I just do not have the time to break it down. Need the space and want to get started on this next project. Price is $400 and it is FIRM (cash sale only). Thank You for looking.
  10. Launched out of Sturgeon on Friday. Ran 6 miles at 279 compass. Found and caught several nice walleye on large stick. silver/blue clown color yellow/red head. All fish on dipseys set at 185 and 175 back # 3 setting. I only use 17lb test/no snubber. Ticked bottom a few times. Trolled a north/south pattern right up tp Canadian line. Started in 67FOW to 73 FOW. Been fishing evenings most of this season and have done very well in this area. I right between State Park and the Cat for a better reference. Marked most fish very tight to bottom. Trolled very slow, 1.4 to 1.7 SOG on gps. Cant catch"em all. Good fishing. Hope this helps.
  11. Pllain and Simple, fully understandable business cost could rise 100% over a 17 yeaar period, and no doubt fishing is no cheap date. In just a few years 15$ went to 25$ went to 40$, Added up thats 120% increase. Not my intention to raise hell, just putting out some info that is factually correct As for my luck in business, no such thing for me, I simply pay close attention to competition and there price schedules. I simply know when potential clients are affected by cost and what questions to ask. Best time to introduce my company. Alot of responces, but no one yet can address the high % cost increase in such a short duration. In 17 years of business, have you ever seen that level of increase, that quickly, I haven"t. Even the IRS aint that bad.
  12. Mr. Chaos, I put two kids thru college the past five years, 1 at Canisius, 1 at Hilbert. Defineltly was"nt CHEAP. The definition in a dictionary for the word GOUGE. READS : To exact exorbitantly " TO Swindle. Consider yourself fortunate that a 60% increase in cost is no issue for you. But I am certain for a lot of folks here New York, especially those on a fixed incomes, or those who have suffered a job loss, or have been burdened by rising Health costs. It is an issue. While highliting this increase, I am mindful of those who have been dealt these difficult circumstances. Do you suppose Charter Captains could increase there cost by 60%, how about Marina operators?. I have been successful in business on my own for several years now, I continue to grow and acquire more clientel each year. I doudt if that would happen if I myself just randomley raised my cost at that percentage. For that matter any other busines as well. No matter how big or small the amount, cost increases altimately reflect the RESPECT that you have for your clients. They understand that cost inevitably rise for a whole host of reasons. On PRINCIPAL I do not ever support efforts to swindle others, no matter how big or small. Its all the same. Gouging: look it up.
  13. Whatever prize mony you win in any tournament, you add to your overall income. You are then TAXED at that rate, so add 25K to your earnings and pay the tax, your win wont feel like much then. I spoke with a past winner of the now defunc ESLO, back in the day when the grand prize was that beautiful GRADY WHITE. Those were ther days gentleman. His win turned into a nightmare as he had to pay out taxes on the total and in addition, split with team members. Never fished a toury again. I would"nt go that far. I just feel that a ( 60% ) increase in cost for anything is gouging. Consider adding 60% to any of your purchases today. Consider ( 1 ) purchase you made a year ago that went up by ( 60% )today. No business could obsorb that high a percentage increase and survive. As far as odds in winning the lottery, I could win a heck of o lot more mony as well. Current Lottery 33 Million. If win, I"ll pay for every LOU member to celebrate as I appreciate all the benefits I have recieved from this web-site. Good luck to those fishing, hope you have good water and the reels are singing.
  14. Went fishing to Lake O last week and while at dock learned from another boater that the LOC Derby had a significant increase in there entrance fee. Speaking with additional fisherman, several expressed there decision to not enter this fall tournament as a result. I spoke with my tourny members who fish each fall and we also decided to not enter as well. This represents an additional ( 60 % ) to entrance fee over last year. I cant recall much of anything with a cost increase at that rate. granted 15$ is not a lot of money, but feel LOC is taking Salmon Anglers for SUCKERS. A charter Captain present mentioned he could not get his clients to enter as they had in last years tourny, 40$ to get in and 20$ for the day to a trip adds up fast. Just want to know if any LOU members have given thought to not fish this year for same reason. I have seen dwindling numbers of anglers on Lake O for a long time now. During the week fishing out of Wilson last fall, I noticed the fewest boats ever during a tournament. Have"nt fished out of the OAK in several years, wondering if anyone noticed the decline at other ports you may have fished. I feel that if we cant reverse this trend, our fishery will be neglected ( as it has been in the past by elected officials as they feel its not worth spending $ to maintain the fishery. The tournaments are one way of enabling this fishery to be exposed to potential future anglers. Consider the number of Captains who no longer operate charters. The decision by LOC officials to raise entrance fees by a whopping (60 %) is a bad one. It will only hasten the decline in exposure to our fishery, and will have a negative impact for years to come. Any thoughts or opinions from LOU members. If you agree, send an email to LOC and voice your thoughts. Thanks guys for your imput.
