  2. I appreciate it. She really is a great rig, if i didnt want to go bigger id never dream of letting her go
  3. 94 Trophy 2002 WA. Looking for a solid, turnkey, Big O boat, thats small enough to trailer anywhere? This is it. I live in Syracuse, but fish basically the entire south shore of the lake. I ran to Rochester this yr every weekend in May for the early king bite, and basically have followed the fish from Rochester to Henderson on the trailer every weekend. She also was a regular on the finger lakes and oneida when big O was blowing. Shes even taken a trip or two to the Adirondacks. Will fish 4 very comfortably, but also very easy for a solo trip. I bought this boat 2 years ago and have completely turned her into a fishing machine.Its a little longer than 20 feet long and 8 feet across the back. I've gone through it pretty extensively since i bought it. 1st, that dreaded Force main motor was removed and i had a MERCURY 125hp saltwater edition 2 stroke professionally installed at the end of last season. Many trophys sell with a "Force by MErcury" motors on them. Trust me, a Force motor, and a Mercury motor are not the same thing. She fires up quickly even in the April cold and will troll down to 1.5, all gauges work, even speedo. I ran it for 8 hrs Saturday in 4-5 footers and only used about 5 gallons of gas. On most days though, we run on the 06 Mercury 8hp 4 stroke kicker. Average fuel consumption for 8 hours on the kicker is about 2 gallons. This was also professionally installed this spring on a garelick heavy duty mount. I added a EZ steer and a ConTrollKing for throttle adjustment and added a 3 way fuel switch off the new water sperator so there is no annoying separate gas tank for the kicker in the boat. With the ConTrollKing, both motors are operated from the wheel, no running back and forth to fine tune throttle. Fast Forward Fiberglass repairs went through the hull last year, as i had a small hole in the chine, and did approx $1500 in work to get the hull back in fighting shape. She doesnt leak a drop. Boat has a bimini top and full plastic zip on windows. (2 zippers need minor repair) Additions this year: 03 Mercury 125hp saltwater 06 Mercury 8hp 4 stroke New prop ConTrollKing throttle adjustment EZ steer (no adjustments needed) Lowrance Elite 7Hdi chartplotter/fishfinder combo (plotter full of marks included) with 83/200 transducer Fishhawk X4 with probe 2 36 inch Berts tracks 6 Berts ratcheting rod holders Big jon planer mast 2 otterboats with extra keels 2 big jon electric downriggers New plastic hatch for the cuddy Water seperator from the gas tank with selector switch for the motors New 750GPH auto bilge installed last week perko switch, with a 2nd battery added. Both batteries new in 2013 Standard features -2 large fishwells -baitwell/drink cooler - fully finished cuddy with table -fire extinguisher -anchor and line storage in the bow -All lines and anchors included 1995 trailer with new tires included Many more additions and features im forgetting to list. I've put piles of money, blood, and sweat into this rig. I am only selling her because i want to stop trailering and go bigger. Asking $10,500 or best offer for everything. Boat is located in Syracuse, will meet for a test drive for serious buyers only, either at an east end port or we can take it to oneida if your in Syracuse during the week. More pics available upon request, i should have some more posted this week. I wanted to wait on posting pics of the back deck, until after i scrubbed all the salmon slime off it from this weekend =)
  4. Interesting trades considered? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Send a pm to hasselmania. He has a pair of Scotty's that are going up for sale Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. I still have on of these witha 9.9 as well.. i use it in the summer for panfish and in the fall to access some deer spots. We've broken 2-3 inches of ice in that with 2-3 hunters and a deer in the boat. That aluminum is rediculous
  7. Check out Burt Goodnough's in Sandy there Big D. They've been very good to me
  8. Sorry guys haven't checked this in a lil. Nautical, you have a pm. And yes I still have it Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. If ur having trouble with atommiks 45#, try the blood run 32#. It's much easier to work with and you can still get decent depths. I have 2 atomik coppers and a 32# blood run and though they all take fish, the lighter copper is much easier to deal with Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. I'm gonna check the screw, creep it out realllly slow. If that doesn't work it's going overboard! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Okuma convector CV-45L spooled with 300' copper/backing/leader. on a 8'6 medium weight diawa rod. 150 or best offer. will ship at buyers expense
  12. Mine are all on 47 size reels backed with 150 yards of 30# braid
  13. Funny you say that bc the other one i bought with it runs great
  14. I hope we didnt open a big can of worms here! lol.. I know alot of guys like them, but i rarely lose fish on the dipsy without the snubber, and landed way less with them, just a preference thing for me.
  15. Thanks for the input.. il check the screw and be sure to let them out snail slow. Nautitroller i appreciate the input, but snubber is a 4 letter word on my boat=)
  16. I picked up 2 new clear mag dipsys this off season, one runs great, the other likes to tangle(leader and mainline wrapped(spun) so dipsy doesnt release). ive changed the swivel off the braid, the leader, and it still spins on me. The other identical dipsy, and the pile of other regular size dipsys do not have this problem. Anyone ever have this? I almost only run FF on the dipsys
  17. Plenty of fish up there for sure.. Well worth the trip.
  18. i had the same issue first tri out this year. it ended up being a corroded connection on the block, thankfully i figured it out before dropping the money on a starter
  19. Could be a carb issue? Buildup from low speed trolling and ethanol gas could cause that issue i would think. if i troll on my 2003 125merc i will run it in at the end of the day on full throttle to blow off any buildup, or if not at least rev it up high in nuetral any never have any problems
