  1. When I am putting stuff together to fish, I check my mono by pulling out a bunch, like 30-50 or so feet onto a clean floor. I then reel it back up pinching it between my thumb and pointer finger. If when the mono is all reeled back up, I have a collection of white chalk on my fingers where I pinched it, it is time to change it. If it is clean, I run it.

  2. Just to let people know, I marked this ad "Sold/Closed" only so it didn't sit open ended out there in the interwebs indefinitely. I still own the boat, and will still entertain offers and such until it sells. I am going bigger and have my eyes on something. This boat is currently professionally winterized, wrapped and sitting on the trailer. If interested, make an offer. I will let her go for a reasonable offer. Matt.
  3. For sure. Just happens to be currently stripped down as it sits in storage. I will include the electronics though if wanted. Matt Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  5. Honestly, I've never used a cannon where I didn't have to hold the button in the down position for a short period of time to halt the upward momentum. I thought that was how they were designed. Mag10a, new Mag 5's, Mag 10HS, Marlins...all the same procedure. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  7. Never put them out the stern. Attach to side or bow of your boat. They will keep the boat slow and level in the water. Matt
  8. I am guessing about 3000. Hour meter was unplugged at 2600 when I bought it 5 years ago.
  9. Last price drop, then going to storage for the rest of the season. $9900.
  10. I have fished Cannon electrics and Scotty electrics extensively. If I had my choice, and $$ was no object, I had enough room to put them on, I would go with Scotty hands down. The only downfall is they are big and require a lot of room.
  11. I don't have a hard and fast number for you on that one. Maybe borrow a trailer from someone? The spec sheet for this boat calls for a trailer rated for 5500 lbs for reference. Matt.
  12. Thanks. We really like this boat. Family cruiser, salmon killer all with ease. Has handled some rough slop here on the eastern end of Lake Ontario. If it were bigger I would be keeping it. She's going up for storage soon, need to move the new rig home.
  13. Getting pulled, washed, winterized and stored soon. If you're at all thinking about making an offer, now is the time. She's still in the water if anyone wants a look-see. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. This one's got to go. Make an offer, I may just accept it. Never hurts to ask. New and bigger rig is coming home soon. Matt.

  16. The previous owner liked to acid wash the hull often. The residual acid sat in any low spot in the trailer, and the wood bunks and rotted out the steel over time. The uprights holding the bunks are rotted out pretty bad. The boat will sit on the trailer in the yard for storage just fine, but I would not take it down the highway or over any bumps at speed. I can transfer the title to the new owner, but I would not recommend going far from Chaumont, NY with the boat on it. Just being honest. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. I replied this AM. Let me know if you are not seeing it. Matt Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. 9.9 seems too big for a square stern canoe. Put that 9.9 on a 14' aluminum that are dime-a-dozen on craigslist. You will be safer, more stable and have more room to work. matt
  19. For Sale: 1997 Pro-Line walkaround. This is a freshwater only boat. This model and year of Pro-Line contains no wood in the construction, which means no rot anywhere. Powered by a Mercruiser 5.7LX, Thunderbolt Ignition, and pushed by a performance leading Bravo 3 outdrive. This power package makes maneuverability and handling a breeze for any boater. The boat is bottom painted with West Marine FW-21. Boat has dual batteries with a switch between them. This boat has been used as a pleasure and fishing boat in and around Chaumont, NY and has been very reliable and seaworthy for our family of five. Professionally winterized and wrapped each year I have owned it. Currently moored in Chaumont, NY. We enjoy this boat, but are going a different direction with our boating needs. There is a trailer included that has been, and should only be used as a STORAGE TRAILER. It can be registered, but am essentially selling the boat with a free trailer. Paperwork for boat and trailer are in hand. Please email or text with inquiries or questions. Note: I removed the passenger seat in order to put the cooler as shown in the pics. I have the seat and it can be put back on easily. Currently listed at $10,900. Time to move this one. Make an offer. New this year or last season includes: -New Bravo 3 outdrive(lower and upper) -New Bennett hydraulic trim-tab pump -New electric choke assembly -Carburetor rebuild -New spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor -New Napa dual purpose batteries(2x) -New QuikSilver shift cables -Hard-top mounted all-around LED light -36" Cannon gunwhale mounted track.

  20. Yeah. The pnemonic devices he uses to remember lights and Rules of the Road are good, but like I said, if you decide to use MLS to study for your license, the exam questions come directly from the quizzes you take throughout the course they present. I used his pnemonic devices to help remember some stuff but there came a time when I had to focus on the material from MLS. I carried my flash cards everywhere for a few weeks. I would pull them out when I had some down time and just ran through some stuff. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. www.marinerslearningsystem.com is the site you want to look at. I did mine with them and had no problem passing their test, that qualifies you to apply to USCG for your license. Once you buy your coarse, they send you a box of books, materials, and your chart. You study the books, the supplements online and take a series of quizzes online. Once you pass a section, you move on to the next. Once you pass all of it, you get a certificate to test out. You choose a site(all over the place) and sit for your USCG qualified exam. The exam consists of the very same questions from all the quizzes you just took. There are four sections. I aced two, and was in the 90's on the other two, so I was prepared really well. A few sections will take some time, a quiet kitchen table to work on and some patience: Rules of the Road, the light and horn configurations, and the chart work. The rest is easy. MLS supplies you with flash cards you can print off to study with. I did it, and it helped a lot. MLS also has qualified staff on call all of the time to answer questions you may have. If you can't figure something out, give them a call, they will walk you through it over the phone. I am in no way affiliated with MLS. I am just really busy, and realized sitting in a class was not going to work. I stayed up late, took Sunday afternoons, etc. and I was more than prepared. I was really happy with the experience and speak highly of them. Matt Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. Very familiar with Calf. I was wondering about Little Calf.
  23. Where is Little Calf? I am not familiar with that island. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  24. I wear a pair of rubber Carhartt bibs. Durable, waterproof and I can get them dirty as hell and just hose them off and not cringe every time. I might wear a little nicer jacket, but not $100's nicer. My current jacket is a rubber coated Columbia raincoat with a tight hood and cuffs. I want waterproof, cleanable and simply dry. I've had goretex, etc. and don't feel it is necessary for sitting on a boat. The tight cuffs are nice to slow down the wet sleeve syndrome. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  25. Yeah, just give them a call. I was given some old Mag 10's that didn't work. I told them what was going on, they put together a package, I paid and they sent it. I rehabbed those old riggers and they have been like new since. Slow by todays standards, but solid as a rock. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
