  1. Sounds like wonderbread was the color of the day!
  2. Iirc temp was around 47 down 90ish Agree on the fleas, had to clean them off every half hour or less
  3. Gave one away after the dock. Would like to have released them but they all were floating belly up immediately
  4. 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
  5. Screens blank all day. Headed to 280 and saw nothing but fleas and flys. Going back shallower
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. Out to 250 and nothing. Few marks around 80 but blank screens otherwise so far Temp is 54 down 90. 60 surface
  9. 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
  10. I /think/ runnings in Canandaigua has bait. They used to anyway
  11. 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?
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. Yes. This is about the best picture I have of my setup. I've added more tracks and rod holders since
  18. Should fit pretty much any track. I'm using Cisco
  19. I have a berts downrigger base that fits in my cisco track, so presumably their other stuff would fit as well
  20. As a woodworker and boater I really appreciate the work that you put into this. Nice job!
  21. North end around 150 to 200 foot of water
  22. Your experience on the lake matches mine from Friday. Lots of marks, lots of bait but no bites.
