  5. What port did you launch out of ?I have heard mixed reports that Wrights is closed,yet some still allowed to launch. Also any Salmon reports on Lake George yet?

  7. I thought yesterday Oswego mayor stated launch is closed indefinitely?
  8. On a boat I had few years ago mounted cannon mag 10s with gimbal mounts with o problems.What I did was install oak backing plates under the gimbal mounted rod Holders.
  9. Be careful mounting too far forward on tight turns run the risk of cable tangling in Prop.I would mount them on rear corners. Good luck.
  10. I use small bead chain in Spring, helps keep debris off Lure,later in season will change to heavier bead chain to connect leader to main line on spoon rods.

  16. I tried the gravity method,no flow.Also used harbor freight pressure bleeder,still did not get good results.This am tried pumping with screw driver from actuator,again little or no flow,pulling out what little hair I have left.Thinking about taking trailer to local auto repair shop.
  17. I have been attempting to bleed the surge brakes on my single axle trailer and after trying several methods can't seem to get all the air out.Jacked-up trailer and spun wheel activated coupler and wheel did seem to brake.Any thoughts?
