  1. Last week on the north end I brought the ball up and had 3 lampreys on it !! And they were like you described, 15"-18" and a grayish color.
  2. I wondered where you were fishing. The fleas on the north end are terrible.
  3. Way to go Paul,you have worked hard all year. Mark
  4. Paul I'm glad that you have figgered them out! I have gone 4 trips without A fish!! If I had any athletic ability I would take up golf!!! Happy Fathers Day Mark
  5. Very tough fishing . This morning was the fourth trip in row without a fish!! Did hook three saw bellies on single hook spoons so there is plenty for the fish to eat.
  6. You can Google the Hobart college research buoy which is located off Clark's point, at the north end. It has wind speed,direction.Water Temperature top to bottom.For me if it's 12mph out of the south I Wait for another day. But I'm retired.
  7. I was fishing the north end. We marked a lot of fish but they were mostly suspended. With the south wind blowing like that and the current heading back to Watkins It is tough fishing. I never have much luck with these conditions. I had looked at the Hobart bouy site and it was 9mph @ 178 degrees, out on the water we checked again and it was 12 mph! Ended up with 3 Lakers.
  8. SK8MAN, Were you fishing out of the PennYan hardtop? I was in the Pursuit with the green top. I had a friend from California fishing with me and I was explaining what pulling copper was and how effective it is. Was it hard to find bottom with current? We were trolling east/west and back. Down Riggers with Mt. Dew crush on the bottom got 6 Lakers, one 10#. A Dipsey out 120 with a 3 setting caught a small rainbow. I told him that Tuesday would be unfishable with a 20 mph south wind, boy was I right!
  9. I had the same problem with mine. Brandon at screwy Louies said that the gear case was out of grease. I'm sure that he would have done this. Make sure that the clutch knob is tight (counter clockwise). I burned out the second board that I had installed.
  10. That is where I would start. Have you been using non ethanol gas ?
  11. I found a replacement controller for my autopilot but it's a newer model and the New unit has a Larger center hub. On a new installation I would use the right hole saw, but I don't know the best way to enlarge an existing hole. Due to the cabling it has to stay where it is. Thanks
  12. There was a big discussion on Otter boat keels , 2 or 11/2 keels or Adam2000 has made replacement Keels
  13. We fished the north end trolling stinger spoons for rainbows, browns, L.L. Trolled 2.0 to 3.5 GPS in 30' to 50' Lots of bait but a lot of wind out of the south. Caught 3 small lakers and lost 2, one of them a good fish. Earlier this week l caught rainbows and a brown, but just Lakers today.
  14. What type of release do you use on the copper off the planet boards ?
  15. Has anyone ever had to grease a gear box on a cannon ? What fitting or zero ? What kind of grease?
  16. Speed is the factor factor with an autopilot. The wind and waves make it impossible to troll straight Into them.
  17. Had a couple of guys that were going to check if they had an old one. Any luck ?
  18. I need a replacement controller for my ST5000 autopilot. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
  19. Yes I think it is an ST5000, do you have any parts? If you do please give me a phone number. thanks
  20. If anyone knows where I can find a controlled or (brain) I would appreciate it.
