  1. I've owned two different crestliners and will never own anything but a crestliner. I've not owned a Starcraft but have a close friend that does, he wants to trade boats constantly ... lol he says the aluminum on the Starcraft is flimsy and dents and creases easily. Mine is a 18' Sportfish, it's a 2000 and we re powered with a E-etc in 2015. Couldn't be happier. I will admit in a perfect world a 20or 22' is better suited for big lake outings. The authority model is a sweet rig with TONS of storage , their best designed fishing model ever in my opinion. I may not have answered you question because I am 100% crestliner bias . Lol . Good luck and post pictures of your new rig!!
  2. I'm heading out this weekend weather permitting, thanks for the report ! Were the lakers east or west of the mouth ?
  3. Thanks for all the options! looking forward to some new water this spring
  4. I've never fished down there but have it on my list, i usually fish out of the Oak. I was thinking of trying Hughes this spring...
  5. Pick one Brown Trout Port... If you could pick one port for spring browns, and lakers for a back up from the Niagara Bar to say Sodus, which one would it be.... Just interested to see everyone's preference. Thanks in advance
  6. WANTED : bombers - 3 1/2" floaters any color - shallow divers Looking for 3 1/2" bombers, any color or condition as long as they still float! looking to custom paint some for spring. Thank You
  7. Two of those trolling rods are medium light ? And in good shape ?
  8. Great advise for us newbie's! Thanks!
  9. Did decent out of the oak in March, but got skunked on Saturday. Word is it has been good west of johnsons creek.
  10. I drilled 3/4" holes about 1" apart in the bottom then a row about 3" from the bottom about 3" apart. It gets me 1-1.3 mph slower . Hope this helps. It's very easy to pull in too. Tie ropes as handles the metal handles won't last
  11. I have a 17.5' crestliner with a 115 hp e- tec. I made a 5 gal pale drift anchor for each side, it cost me $10 and got me from 2.8 down to 1.8. They stay out of the way attached to the front cleats... Works great. His other option would be a different pitched prop but then he would loose top end.
  12. B&E tackle has a good selection of bay rats
  13. Its a decent event , but mostly geared toward warm water fishing. I went last year and probably spent 1/2 hr walking around. I'm guessing 30-40 tables maybe someone could help out with how many vendors are signed up this year. I live 10 min away so its a no brainer, A long drive I'm not so sure, but with it being a cold day and not much else going on it would be a toss up.
  14. I've been out three times in march with no issues . As said before vertical draining and turning the motor over a couple times after coming out of the water turning the water pump and pushes out any water left in the system . This prevents the water discharge opening from freezing for your next trip.
  15. Are these the ratchet style or the cam lock style? Thanks Jeff
