  1. Great boat. I run the next size up (231 WA) in this hull. Mine is an I/O. Very solid hull. I am pretty sure this is the first year they went to no wood construction. Sent from my XT1585 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Agreed
  3. Not really. Water is "stable" right now. Not going up or down. If it has dropped it is not really noticeable.
  4. I am not a fly fisherman, but wouldn't it have been cool to tie up some flies, and fly fish for eyes? Sent from my XT1585 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Thanks, Kevin. Reason I ask is, I took one in Chaumont Sunday whose stomach was practically empty. Matt
  6. River or lake?
  7. $350 for the controls, or for the motor and controls? Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United
  8. There is a 454 on the Syracuse craigslist. Sent from my XT1585 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. As far as what I have heard, all of the launches in the eastern basin are open, with the exception of Sackets Harbor. They all have high water, and tall boots are a necessity if you want to stay dry. In terms of launching a bigger boat, I don't think you will have any trouble. There is plenty of water to float it at the launch. By the time you are standing on the dock with the boat floating off the trailer, you could be in five to six feet of water.

  11. Rent something in the eastern basin, especially if your stuck to the September time frame. The walleye fishing has picked back up by then, the king's are staging and bass is good too. Sent from my XT1585 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. SSW wind this week is pushing even more water into the eastern basin too. Not good.
  13. Seeing how the "water pump" was replaced in 2016, there is only one season on it. With that in mind, it should not have gone bad already. It might be worth piece of mind to inspect the intake, the duct work from the pump, etc to see if it is clogged. A year old water pump service should not have failed so badly, unless you run it in some serious muck, or something is clogged, disconnected, etc.
  14. A couple things to keep in mind running four riggers. 1) Make sure you have the same amount of cable on all four. Just like the spools on your reels, how much line/wire is on there affects the accuracy of your counters. If one is short, it will not run in the water column where you think it is. 2) To run four, the two outside weights have to be spread way out away from your middle two. The long booms will do that, but a pain and dangerous to operate. We put wingers, or planers just above the weight of our outside two riggers. We run four almost exclusively, and almost never have a tangle, not even in sharp turns running structure in eastern lake Ontario. The only time I have seen a tangle is when we unknowingly had a wire way shorter than the other three.
  15. Sold / Closed

    Just a side note. With all the drama in the classifieds lately, I just wanted to vouch for this guy as a seller. I have bought from him in the past. Very straight forward and honest guy. He fishes this boat on a regular basis. He knows his stuff. If I were in the market for a boat, I would have no reservation in looking seriously at his rig.
