    Kicker help

    two spherical ball joint ends from Napa with a stud, a piece of 3/8" rod, and a die to cut threads on the rod to match your ball joint ends and some scrap aluminum to make your mounting brackets if necessary. About $25 in material and a few hours for trail and error bending your piece of rod. Heat helps with the bends. A lot lot cheaper than going with sea-star.

    Wanted Torpedo weights?

    Ozzy's Obsession sells them and had a post up last week. I love them and you cannot beat the price $75 shipped, his coating holds up well and the weights track very nicely even when going DEEEEEP
  5. Sent message for 4, Thx ozzy, I have used these weights in the past, they are great and already coated, run true, only problem with them is they sink really fast when you snag bottom in the Hudson...

    115 hp 2stroke yamaha

    I would check LP fuel pumps for pinholes. Yamaha's are known for failing. They are easily rebuildable for less than 20 bucks per pump for the diaphragms. if you figure it out please circle back with your results. Thanks
  7. I am considering selling it yes, or holding onto it for a spare. Still on the fence as it has treated me pretty well and only has around 950 hours on it. I put a deposit on a 225 Yamaha with 325 hours on it yesterday so I should decide in the next 2-3 weeks.
  8. Looking for a used but good quality lower hour Yamaha outboard to re power with. 2 or 4 stroke fine. 25" shaft. willing to travel. Needs to be 225-300 hp. Year 2000 or newer preferred.
  9. Stinger, Stingray or mag size?

    Thanks Chris and others! Man this site is AWESOME! Thanks for your quick replies. I picked up a set of black Chinooks in size 1, 3, & 5 and might have to try a set of the deeper divers. I like the absence of the ring. From what I read about the Chinooks, though, maybe the others wont actually get a chance. I like the fact that they are stainless (what boat guru doesn't like stainless??) and made on a smaller scale from a NY local captain. Cheers and Fish On! I've never run divers much but like my original post said, but we couldn't keep the mag dipsy in the water last Friday on Cayuga. It took 19/31 fish caught that day.

    Hey LOU Members, Divers... That's the question. Which type are you all using. I mainly fish smaller lakes, the fingers and an maybe Ontario 1 or 2x a season. I have both wire and braid rods set up. I have had good results with dipsys, but there are a lot of others on the market. Can somone be kind enough to help me decide if I should diversify my diver collection or just stick with the Dipsys. THere are Chinook Divers, Slide Divers, Deeper Divers and I am sure many more... Last weekend the mag dipseys out 125 did really well on hungry lakers on Cayuga. Also, what about color... I don't think it matters much but looking for more seasoned anglers opinions Thanks in advance
  12. That's a beauty and seemingly a great buy. Someone is going to end up with a fish slaying machine. GLWS

    Help design a roll-up tarp cover

    Look into greenhouse wall side kits, they are made to roll up high and for longer 50+ foot lengths. The pieces that make up a kit may give you an idea
