  1. Hi jimski2 I am afraid you are right. I just talked to two people finally who used to do this work but they said to forget it. If I or anybody else wants to put something in the water like a lift or pileings that they can tie their boat to-the DEC will not give them a permit anymore. The lake always takes them over-especially after a big storm. The bed on lake Ontario moves etc etc etc. Can't put in a ramp either as the concrete has to extend into the water a no no for fish environment. Maybe I should consider myself blessed having a marina 5 minutes away. How do these marinas get the ok to rebuild and ad more docks and slips. Funny how stupid some of us (me) are. These people like the DEC get their foot in the door saying we only want to do this for the environment but is a short time ,they can do anything they want. As for where I have my place which is right near bald eagle marina you can't beat it.That woman running it has really turnd it around and it is loaded with boats. Nice big restaurant now and fish ,lots of big fish being caught. I saw a shore patrol boat yesterday that had three 300 hp engines on it and the boat is not that big. It is for speed. They know how to spend that free money they get. anyway good fishing to everybody and someway somehow I will solve this problem. The people who gave me this info are rebuilding the break walls and installing others from scratch. I lucked out on mine and don't need repairs. The neighbor on my left said it cost him $30 k and the other two doors down said he paid close to $60k. I think it's called Lake Ontario construction.
  2. I have two boats now at bald eagle marina. I have tried everything to get a boat ramp installed or a rail system. on my property in Kendal. There are a lot of boat rail system installers in Canada but not in the lake Ontario area.. The ones that did contact me say they will come and look at it but never do. Even tried to get davits installed. Guess I will have to find Samson and Hercules to came and lift them on shore. I have a pretty good breakwall so I think the rail system is the way to go. There are some construction crews working on Breakwalls and shore repairs but don't want to waste time trying to get past the DEC. I even have a state built Boat ramp built by the state between my property and my neighbors but mostly filled in with huge gigantic boulders and unusable and I can't touch it because it is state land. I had a gravel area dug out on the other side of the road on my property so I can store both boats there in the winter. If anybody knows of anyone who can install rail systems or boat ramps I would love to hear from them. Thanks. David G
  3. Hi members. Ashamed to say I have not been on since I bought my Lund boat in april I think. Anyway I was so busy as My wife decided (you know what I mean guys). To sell the big colonial in Pittsford and move to a ranch rental community. TIred of paying all those taxes for property-etc etc. and doing all the (1 acre) Yard work. 3500 sq ft prairie style colonial which housed me and my wife and her parents that moved in for 12 yrs until they passed away. My son and his wife lived there and also my daughter and her husband. Would you believe it took over four dumpsters as everyone left stuff. Looking for the best chart for my 16" NSS evo2. One that shows wrecks and everything. I have not even been out yet. Just dropped the Lund in the slip at bald eagle Marina. I also have the slip next to it for my Premier Pontoon boat which is not yet in the water. Any extras you might think I will need for this Simrad. They recommend C-Charts. I appreciate any input at all. The small ranch I have on the water here in Kendal is going to get some extras this year if I can find the right people. My wife thinks a new deck with steps going down to the break wall. Thinking of getting Davits installed for my pontoon or my Lund. Don't even know where to start looking. I have been so busy lately. I am 78 and have not lost any interest in fishing at all. I worked hard all my life and have really been enjoying it lately. I am a very lucky person. I hope we all have a great fishing year.
  4. I have two to choose from http://www.seagermarine.com/boat_listings/2017-lund-1600-rebel-side-console I don't like this one for the reason the storage on the sides takes away from free space. This is the rebel SS The fury XL SS is 3 inches wider and has 3 seats and extras and I don't get the difference in MSRP http://www.seagermarine.com/boat_listings/2017-fury-1625-xl-side-console That simrad 16" definitely will no fit on top of the console-too big. Maybe I should get the big tiller they have there Daveyg
  5. thanks dgio67 Bassin Bob.-I was just a little worried that the Lund was not quite big enough but I think I will like it Just wondering also where the heck they are going to mount that 16" simrad chartplotter. with side scan. anybody have one of these mounted on a 16 footer> DaveyG
  6. Fury XL 16 footer or rebel SS 16 footer. I like the fury better but dealer says rebel is a better boat-heavier aluminum. Is he feeding me baloney? Daveyg
  7. I cancelled out on the starcraft and decided to buy a new Lund Rebel ss 16 footer. Has the sport trac system for mounting all your equiptment etc etc. I bought it today at the show.This time I have to pay to have them mount the 16" simrad chartplotter etc etc. Can't wait to get it even though I won't be able to use it.for awhile
  8. said I have a post from rockbass bones but I don't see it
  9. I have two free passes but nobody I know wanted to go to the boat show. I live on Harwood lane in east Rochester if anybody wants them for tomorrow.
  10. thanks I hope to spend a lot of time on it. I have all the time in the world and crazy me thinks maybe get a auto pilot and just spend a few days looking for wrecks. I think they have a map somewhere of where they are located but I think most are up around Oswego. I look forward to a lot of days on the water this coming year.
  11. Well I went to the show and ended up buying a 2007 16' starcraft starfire with a 50HP and a 9.9 four stroke kicker. Has a cover etc etc. They are going to mount my simrad NSS16 evo2 Chartplotter and Lowrance TotalScan Skimmer Transom Mount Transduce for me. Just wondering how fast that 50HP engine will get me off the lake. I don't think it will hit 30MPH but it should be fast enough. I was amazed at the prices of some of those jet skies now. they are really up there. I hope every one has a great fishing year. david
  12. send me pics also and will you ship the flies? Don't have any flies myself thanks
