  1. The gear reduction motor & the small lexan disc w/ the spring is the drag. Basically when you're hooked up you just keep the gas pedal down and use the machine for drag, bigger fish you pinch the wire in your fingers to help out. Switch the battery terminal clips around, hit the pedal & throw the spoon over the side to let wire out and get back to the bottom. He painted it up JD, they make nice t-shirts & decent lawnmowers. Jokes aside, I'm a farmer & have 5 John Deere tractors, I don't mind those colors at all. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. It's got a little gear reduction motor on it. The man who built it did a really nice job. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. My setup has a gas pedal to help reel in the mud chickens. I call it a singer. Works pretty good. People shake their head till they see it in action. Pretty slick. Got it from a older man that couldn't see well enough to fish w/ it anymore. So glad I don't have the copper around my feet anymore. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. I've got a reel with thin solid wire on it you can have to get started with. It's not spring loaded, so you'll have to coil the copper near your feet purposely to avoid kinks in it. That requires you to not to move your feet or risk a bird nest tangle. That ends the day. If you live close to Cayuga Lake, I'll take you out sometime & you can see what it's all about. I haven't been out all year, all my buddies are busy with family & work, so nobody to drive the boat. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Will all these fine details be in the book Sk8? Or do I need to print an appendix for my daughter? She's almost 2, but I'm 40 and have never Seth Greened it. I yank copper though. She'll know about that. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. I'm a grain farmer in Red Creek NY. I usually keep my mouth shut about the area, but you've caught me in a weak moment I guess. Blue ribbon school, unlike Wolcott, next town over. 5 minutes from Fair Haven & L.O.. Pick Rochester or Syracuse for employment. 45 or 50 minutes to either. Rochester you won't need sunglasses, it'll be at your back a.m. & p.m. on your way to & from. Syracuse it'll be in your face both ways. Just don't purchase a field I work & put a house in the middle w/ a 50 acre yard please. That has happened enough. I'll be looking for a new job in the next 10 years if that keeps occurring. I only own 500 acres, the rest I rent. Go to Scottsville, Springville, Batavia,? That'd be a good place. Close to both lakes & Rochester/Buffalo. Sorry to hear you'll have to find new employment. If you want to stay in NY, check out Novelis in Oswego, Hutamaki in Fulton, & Motts/Cadbury in Williamson. All good places that take care of the employees. I've got some friends that work at those 3 places & tell me good things. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. 10-4. No problem. Have fun w/ the gf. Today is a beautiful day to explore. Trails you can walk if you're into that a little east of Fair Haven @ the Sterling Nature Center. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. I've got one you can borrow. I live the next village over. Red Creek Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. If you want to fish the channel from the bay to the lake for early morning or evening walleye, you can go over to the county park on the West side & park almost on the pier. Bring a long handled net or you'll have to horse anything you catch up 6 foot to the top of the pier. The small concrete pier near the bluffs is still fishable. It's broken up a little, but a guy can still fish off the end. The channel to the park pond is pretty shallow & hasn't been dredged in a decade since the diving boards were taken out. The 500' where the old coal trestle was S. of the boat launch drops off to 20' very quickly and a rocky bottom. If you perch it over there, bring plenty of sinkers cause you'll lose a few. Bullheads are active in the park pond now if you like also. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. I drove past today & 3 vehicles were in the parking area. I also live in the school district & elementary kids are back in school right now. Just must be backed up w/ work right now. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Floating dock is in. Good to go for a 22'. Whole pic, 25' from end of dock, and end of dock/ concrete. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. 2 weeks ago it was 4'6" at the end of the ramp in the St. Park. I will check it again & report. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Earl is correct. 4' 6" on my transit stick. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Stuck the transit stick in at the end of the concrete 4' 5" for depth on the eastern ramp w/ about a 4" drop-off off the pad. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Yes. I launched out of the state park. The water was up a couple inches from last weekend. I'll get a yardstick and measure the height at the end of the concrete & post it. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. I was out perch fishing today & a barge w/ an excavator came through the channel into the bay from Sodus. A worker said they have a 2 day job in the channel. The pic is in Lsb, Fair Haven. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. Bummer. Frame that sign in on the top. Can still get the phone # though. Looks like a fun day you had & that rack should get your phone ringing. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. Eagle Welding & Machine in Wolcott NY. They have a computer controlled cutting table. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. The Cross Lake Inn & Marina parking area has not been plowed out recently, the road has for the cottages. I had to put my truck in 4wd to get turned around in the parking area. They also have removed the little white shack that had the $ box on it for boat launch payment. Appears someone is living at the restaurant as one vehicle was parked up tight to the building with a 2 wide plow width driveway to the corner of it. No parking that I could see unless you have a 4wd and permission to park. I will PM you with an alternative. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. I live close enough to Cross Lake to take a little drive and see if the driveway down the hill to the marina/campground/restaurant is plowed out. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. I just received my copy today. I would like to thank this site & all the generous people that contribute to giving up knowledge freely or a small price to cover publishing costs of printing a book. I was exposed to the panfish art while I was a child by an Uncle through marriage. He also educated me on yanking copper for lake trout when my cousin & I were old enough to be almost trusted "netters". I still remember some big lakers that would balance on the hoop of the net, spit the spoon, and splash back in the water when I was a 10 year old kid. Big water fishing I was never exposed or taught anything on, even a starting point. Help from a neighbor that saw I bought a small fishing boat motioned me into his driveway one day. I left his garage that evening with 4 lake poles, 2 mag 10a downriggers, a lake trout lunchbox w/ peanuts & cowbells in it. All for almost free. Just wanted to pass it on to someone interested. For a guy that grew up with a non fishing father or grandfather, I've come a long way after I joined this site years ago. Thanks again for passing down the knowledge when I'm trolling around not knowing what else I can do or change to better my odds. Patiently waiting for Sk8mans book also. I want that Bible in my hands for sure. Sent from my SM-G781V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. I've used a contraption about the same as my sewing machine reel. Same gear reduction motor, same size reel, the pedal to reel it in, & the same spoon, but with braid copper on it. For me, it hurts the "feel" of the spoon & the bottom. The braid it seems I'm always running out more wire to get that "feel". Still caught fish, but I don't know if it bellies up like leadcore can or what. I'm talking like twice the braid to fish 80' deep. I learned on solid wire with the old 2 handled wooden reel I guess. That tick tick tick is what I'm familiar with. Now if I could just get some time to get out fishing. Good luck to all you yankers. So fun fighting a big ol' boy to the boat hand over hand.

  24. Nice work! Now just be looking for the yellow/orange tips on the fins. Those are the good eaters. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  25. My old perchhound "The Frick". He can't go anymore because of weak/shaking back legs, he was my fishfinder for many years. When he would bark, I'd throw the anchor. 2/3rds of the time he was accurate. Some things a dog just does on it's own. When he was a month old puppy he upset many people on sodus bay ice fishing. He got away from me and must have sniffed every hole on the bay. He was a perchhound since and sad I don't have a pic of him on the boat. Got a little pup a few months ago, he has lots to learn, but a pic from a few days ago. 1st time on the boat, Silver Lake. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
