  1. I have them all around my boat and haven't had that issue. I'm also not using it a lot, unfortunately, but this does worry me. The only issue I had was a used one from Amazon warehouse- there's a single screw holding the whole top pivoting to the bottom. That was loose but fixed with loctite There does not look to be much material in that area
  2. That sucks, sorry to hear that. Some people are just ****ty. Glad you got out and got some fish at least
  3. Ended up 4/5. Lost a pretty good size one on a spoon and picked up another few small salmon on flasher / fly. Most of the action was very high up as it was icy down only 25 feet in most places I really appreciate all the tips from everyone. Best part of the day was my son asking to go fishing again! Now that's a successful trip
  4. Mission accomplished, if this is the only one we boat it was worth it. Frogger flasher with frogger mc rocket meat. 25 down over 100. Special thanks to double-d for the tips today!
  5. Been a couple of years since I have been out on Ontario and taking my 8 year old with me this time. Any tips on where to start (targeting salmon, steelhead or even lakers just to get some action)? I'll update here after the trip tomorrow
  6. Sounds like wonderbread was the color of the day!
  7. Iirc temp was around 47 down 90ish Agree on the fleas, had to clean them off every half hour or less
  8. Gave one away after the dock. Would like to have released them but they all were floating belly up immediately
  9. Finished 3 for 3 all rainbows. Last came on wonder bread 75 down over 120. Flys were super annoying today. Also saw a crazy kayaker this morning out about a mile and a half from shore. It was calm but I wouldn't have the balls for that
  10. Screens blank all day. Headed to 280 and saw nothing but fleas and flys. Going back shallower
  11. Couple of 7 lb steelhead over 130 and 180 so far. White and black flasher fly and rainbow spoon took them. 300 copper and downrigger down 60 respectively
  12. Looked familiar 😊. I have a 2015 1875. Agree on the size, it's a little hairy when the lake starts getting white tips. The stern is a little too low
  13. Out to 250 and nothing. Few marks around 80 but blank screens otherwise so far Temp is 54 down 90. 60 surface
  14. I'm out of iBay. Out to 250 and nothing. Few marks around 80 but blank screens otherwise Temp is 54 down 90. 60 surface
  15. I /think/ runnings in Canandaigua has bait. They used to anyway
  16. I've been thinking about going out there rather than all the way over to Sandy Creek (I'm on the east side) --is the launch the one by sea breeze?
  17. Braddock's is paid, right? Eg they don't accept empire pass? There's Westpoint Marine there but the dec indicated a boat launch too
  18. I've had this for a couple of years and like it quite a bit, especially at the price: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01F3L668K/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 It's hauled up a 20+ lb laker without issue. I did modify the portion that attaches to the handle to make a stronger connection though. The stock system used screws instead of through bolts with nuts
  19. Agreed. Since I don't live near the lake but was up there tonight for other reasons I scouted the Braddock's area: The state launch on the East side as well as the pay per launch Manitou beach Marina on the west side both open
  20. Do you have a multimeter? See if there's any voltage on those wires. Also check to see what they run back to, I would be cautious with open wires just lying in the boat.. One other thing to check - does your motor still have an anode on it and is it in good shape? Might be worth replacing w/ a new zinc anode
  21. Where on the boat is it? Lund had had issues with electrolysis on the transom which appears as bubbling paint. I guess under some circumstances the treated wood in the transom reacts with the aluminum. Not sure if alumnacraft had that issue but thought I'd mention it
  22. Yes. This is about the best picture I have of my setup. I've added more tracks and rod holders since
