  1. Typical on Craigelist and other sites offering boats for sale they have these characteristics in common. No Hull ID # pictured. No background views to determine location. Limited photo's, usually no more than 3. No Licence Plate Photo. Use only email for responses. Prices obviously way off they mark. Flag them whenever your in doubt.
  2. What depths were you in. Did you attempt anything around the Red Barn. Thinking of getting one last dance. Thanks, you did have a great season.
  3. I'll get you a pic shortly. I have my boat at a friends house up on Lake O. Should be there tomorrow for some cleaning and I have to install a new battery. Check back tomorrow evening.
  4. Skywatcher, I always fish them behind a Flasher. Larger when deep, smaller behind a dipsey Leader length when using a dipsey I extend to 36"and shorten the lead between Dipsey and paddle to 30. For some odd reason, I have had more success when using a Dipsey painted all black. One thing about these baits is bigger kings do a job on the paint job. I spray them with a clear coat and that protects them much better. I have also used them in the Finger lakes and they have produced as well there for Lakers. One thing My friend from Washington suggested to me, remove the sponge on the inside and do not over fill the cavity. That sponge gets a bad odor to it over time and it most likely turns off fish. I have been doing this now consistently and IT DOES WORK. Best to you, good fishing.
  5. Breaking Bass, I have been fishing these Brads super baits for about 5 years now. Have a friend from Washington state who fishes on the Columbia river for Kings who brought me several. I fill them with Sardines in Oil. Much better than tuna. I shortened the leader behind flasher to 32" inches and upped the test to 30lbs. My best to date has been the Blue Hawaiian, Mountain Due is also been very productive. When fishing deep, I like a larger 11" flasher and smaller when using a Dipsey. I have caught a lot of stealies on the longer version in florescent red. I troll them slower between 1.8 and 2,2. I like them as I find is just as effective as meat, but a whole lot less expensive. Length behind rigger ball 18 -22 ft. Good luck, Tight lines.
  6. Appreciate the response. Deepest I dropped it to was 110. I did get speed indicated, but no temp.
  7. Got out for a couple of hours late Thursday afternoon. Boaters at dock said 220 - 260 . Didn't see a damm thing out there. Went out to 300- 320 and started marking some fish. Temp down 85 was 43. Probe went blank, Sub Troll ) not sure why, any suggestions would be appreciated. That said, switched to a lighter line rod( 14 lb) and got bit. #3 Kings in about 40 minutes before I had to leave. Biggest was 26 lbs. Scary trying to land one that size alone in the boat. Got all 3 on Brads Super Bait with sardine stuffed. Short bite, but sweet for first time out this year. Also, no one I have spoken to in last 10 days has gotten any Walleye east of the Cat. Went to Sturgeon last Tuesday and not a single boat in parking lot. That says it all.
  8. Take a boy fishing when he is young. When you are old, he will take you. Great day Dad, hope you have many more.
  9. Gentleman, for those of you who venture up to Lake Erie for a change of pace and enjoy our fabulous walleye fishing. The Town Supervisor for the town of Evans has just announced that the town WILL NOT DREDGE the entrance and it will remain closed for the season. This Marina has been badly managed for years. Seems like anything run by municipalities just cant get things done right. Town of Hamburg golf coarse still closed while several private coarse's nearby are open. I love New York. Better get another slogan.
  10. The biggest avenue for the transmit ion of Covid 19 in New York city was the Sub-way, buses and elevators. Never seen any one of these at a boat launch. The Mayor of Buffalo, NY was offering free transportation on their transit system Now that's a great way to social distance. And these are the people making decisions to protect the public and close boat ramps, Right.
  11. What make engines, HP and hours. Thank you.
  12. Thanks for letting me know. Having some issues with my current unit and not wanting to go offshore without one. Have a great summer.
  13. Anyone know the individual who initially posted, I am interested to determine if he still has this unit available. Unable to private email. Thanks all, smooth sailing & tight lines.
