  1. $41,900 on their website. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. IO? Does the engine rev up, but won't go anywhere? If so, a little more complicated. Sounds like your cable end at the carb is loose, off or broke. One cable shifts her into gear, another advances the throttle in gear. Take a look at the carb or throttle body to see where the cable terminates. It may be obvious. If not, maybe the same is true at the controller end. You can pull it off to look and see, but don't take it apart unless you are confident in putting it back together. They are full of springs and stuff that must go back together correctly. The problem may be obvious in the back of the controller. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. My Elite 7 Chirp used to pull this same crap. It's only purpose is my chart now. My Lowrance Ice pack does the same thing when hole hopping. I just think their 'ducers are just too finicky. I think it has somehing to do with bubbles, turbulence, speed and how the machine interprets what the 'ducer is sending to it. Much the same way it wouldn't read shallow water. Just a PITA So I went to Garmin. Much better. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Just a quality clip at end of floro leader. Swivel or bead chain between main line and floro. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. There is. The Fishing Hot Spots maps show all of this stuff...if you can find one. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Launch at Henderson. Run to Shipping Lane or Mountain. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Plain pledge is best for isinglass. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. I know someone that fished the Lane this week, and did not hit 'em real good. A few fish came to the net, but not great numbers for the ride out there.
  9. A couple things to consider with braid for dipsies: 1. Fleas usually stick to the braid worse, but then again they stick to wire and mono too. 2. The thicker the line, the better. Even though a lighter braid will hold the pull of a mag dipsy just fine, a heavier, say 65# braid is thicker and maybe the fleas won't adhere as badly. I am using 65# PowerPro and have really good luck with it as far as fleas. They are there, but manageable. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Yes. LakeVu does cover Lake Ontario. The Garmin BlueChart does too, but it lacks detail in some of the bays. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Garmin units with the LakeVu built in are really nice. The echomap plus units are hybrid touch and have programmable soft keys you can make bring up any screen you want automatically. You do get bells and whistles, but the new Garmin stuff is just really nice.
  12. Great Lakes Planers makes some really nice, stout and customizable arches. He can/will make or customize to anything you want. This is a local business(Three Mile Bay, NY) and knows what we need here on Lake Ontario. www.greatlakesplaners.com
  13. If I remember, you bought a Proline 231 with a 5.7 that needed to be rebuilt? 42 MPH would be a little faster than factory spec for that boat. Maybe you just need to dial back the carb a little. Maybe you've already done that. Just a thought. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. I see. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. One thing I have always wondered about hydraulic steering on the main engine and trolling with a kicker. I assume there must be some form of hydraulic pump to move the Seastar cylinder. I, maybe falsely also assume the pump is powered by the big engine. If someone is using just the kicker, how does the Seastar get it's power to steer? Maybe a stupid question.

  16. I have only been out opening day. Worked both shores of BRB. Pillar side was a parking lot. Sacketts side from Mill Creek to buoys produced a lot of bites but had trouble keeping them buttoned up so can't say what they in fact were. Managed two. A friend went out next day, same spot and never tipped a rod. I think in general it was spotty in the bays. A few here and there. The guys that always, get 'em, got a few. Others really struggled. VERY cold water except for mouth of BR.
  17. What's the asking price now? Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. Yes, a 110V receptacle will work just fine. Two things to remember: make sure you have a fuse or breaker close to your power source with wire heavy enough to withstand the draw you'll have on it, and those big jons will run normal or in reverse. Meaning, if you plug in upside down, up on the switch will be down on the rigger. Simply flip the plug over and they will be right. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. Dipsys are easy. Just be sure to run them at like a two setting each side so they stay outta your riggers. Research how to adjust the weight and which way to turn it per side. As far as your lowrance, the navionics stuff is good. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. Zinc is for salt. Magnesium is best for freshwater. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. I'll take em. I sent you a PM. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. Yes. Also, IO's are notorious for wandering all over the place. I am assuming you have an IO. All the weight and drive are in the very back of the boat, making the bow light. Plus, you put a couple adults back there, and it is worse. Put bags out, keep them midship, trim your drive all the way in, and consider some weight for the bow and it will help.

  23. I’m also thinkin this will be the last year with my trophy and may look into gettin a new boat for next year. Run it with bags this year, and look for something all set the way you want it next year. May cost you, but at least it's all set. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
