  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.



  6. 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.
