  1. Not hard to do if you have the motor. DIY

    Sold / Closed 1989 Baha 280 Fisherman

    Recent survey, or stringer work?
  3. meangreencj7 please call me regarding the stands. 729-6317
  4. Maybe try picking up your speed a little when lowering, will have less upward drift.
  5. Was out Sandy Fri. and Sat. , skunked Friday. Stayed in under 200. Sat caught 1 laker in 110 and that was it. Not seeing much of anything. Going deep next time.
  6. I don't see a problem using the riggers for attractors. As long as you use only 3 'baited' poles each . No law concerning that as far as I know.
  7. I had a day like that last year, all lost (6) on flies that I just changed the treble to eagle claws. They seemed to have a shallower and wider bend than the originals. Replaced all of them with some silver ones I had, not sure of the brand, no more issues. Maybe coincidence, maybe not.
  8. Troutman makes and sells them for a decent price, search classifieds and you'll find him pretty quick. probably within 5 pages.
  9. I tried the cleaner sold at Walmart in the boating section. Spray it on and the scum disappears right before your eyes. Just hose it off. No scrubbing needed. Not sure of the name. Used on an Islander, did not remove any paint.
  10. When retrieving the line with a fish on a lower lead, try dropping the line into a 5 gal pail and hooking the leaders on the edge of the pail, If a fish runs , let go of the line ,the line will pull from the pail and the spoons will pop off the edge. Keep the pail near the back of the boat unobstructed. Works pretty good most of the time. When he stops , repeat process.
  11. Picked up a backpack with mostly bass stuff in it on East Ave by the church about a week ago. Ran over , but all the plastics and a couple lures are still good. Call Steve. 392-7896- eves.
  12. Troutman for torpedo weights, find him in classifieds, probably 1st two pages.
  13. Lost my last one on Conesus Fri. night after smackin two 7-8lb walleyes. Had it for 30 yrs and caught many a species of fish with it.
  14. Anybody have a line on some flutter spoons? Suttons or Sammy paks? Would like some around 4 inch body length . thin profile.
  15. Mentioned in another post, be careful not to go off the pad. Someone did and got stuck bad. Bring waiters and a 5ft rod and find the end. was there today, still about 3ft near end of south dock.
  16. Bring a pair of hip waiters and a 5ft rod of some sort. Find the end of the pad a poke the rod in close to the dock. better safe than sorry. I went there today and measured with a stick and there's just about 3ft near the end of the dock. Recent rain brought it up a little since last week. Forecasted more off and on over next week. Low trailer should be good for awhile.
  17. Curious, why ask the internal color? I have 3 units.
  18. I spray a little on my hands and then rinse in the lake before touching rigger balls and releases. Masking human scent and other smells that can get on your hands does help. Heard about a study done , one side of boat with spray, other side without. Side with scent cover was hit almost exclusively.
  19. If it ain't broke don't fix it. Use the boat, if it sounds and runs good and doesn't use oil, go for it. If one motor starts acting up then it may be time to rebuild. Motors taken care of can run forever. Had a searay with the 3.0 motor for 25 yrs plus 5 for previous owner and never replaced any interior parts. Mega water skiing and fishing.
  20. Canvas Concepts 11 Buttonwood Dr. Hilton NY 17yrs exp. Out of the way for you, but, quality work, fair price. Trailering covers are more expensive than mooring ones. I was quoted a 1/2 cover for an 19.5 Islander, windshield to transom ~ 950.00
