  1. I run wire on the Dipsey rods but this year I am going to try 50lb power braid. Supposedly the fleas won't stick to it as they drove me nuts last year. On my diver rods currently I use 7 strand wire 30lb. and on the end of the wire I put on about 35-40ft of braid that way I can wind the wire all the way on to the reels and you dn't get any kinks.
  2. Nah not till the spring. Adam is just to busy this time of year. I just might go with a whole new out drive, have to wait and see the cost of one vs. the other. Donald told me if it is within 5-600 bucks vs a new out drive he'd go with the new out drive, so Peggy heard that and his word is gospel to her so she wants to do that, but don't know if Adam wants to put on a whole new out drive. Water is pretty low now anyways and everyone is pulling there boats and Norm is pulling docks out. Kenny is out today on a charter, has one tomorrow too. Pretty bouncy now though so he is in close least last I saw of him he was. See you in the spring my brotha.
  3. Hey Bob how's it hangin! Had a good time at Cole's last night. Your camper sure is loud though! Tell Berta hey and give Julie a good pat for me. See ya in the spring. PS this fella keeps his stuff in A-1 shape, just sayin
  4. That is a good idea. I'll look into it.
  5. So I fish a PY Avenger. The current trailer I have just seems a bit to small but it came with the boat. It is without question the most difficult load trailer I've ever dealt with or experienced. The boat just doesn't want to center correctly on the trailer. The former boat I owned a Pro Line just seemed to glide right up on the trailer and center itself perfectly every time. The Avenger is very heavy too, with a 9.5' beam and a length of 24'. The unladen weight of the Avenger according to a brochure I have on it was 4300lbs. So looking for a trailer that will work better and just be easier to load. Any help is appreciated. thanks
  6. Read this on the WHAM website. One fisherman lost and one rescued. 9 miles from shore near Point Breeze. Boat took on lots of water in 5-7' waves and capsized. The fisherman were in the water for 2-3 hours. Canadian freighter and a couple of fisherman from Ohio rescued the one fella and recovered the second fella. Similar instance with no fatalities happened here a few weeks ago out of Hughes. Big water and the 4 guys in the boat and it took on water and Pultneyville fire and rescue towed the boat in and Wayne County sheriffs brought the 4 guys in. The boat if I recall was a Grady White and water up over the gunwales but it didn't sink. I know we have all been out in snotty conditions and probably have fished when we really shouldn't have. Sure is unforgiving when you F up. Stay safe.
  7. how do these mount. Do you need tracks or do they screw down right to the rail. thanks
  8. Yep pretty bouncy out of Hughes yesterday afternoon too! My brother is visiting and frankly didn't care for it to much. Only fished a bit but did manage a very good brown right off the bat.
