  4. Cape Cod

    Thanks. I’ll look into it. I am going to call a couple of the local tackle shops to get a little info from their perspective. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. Cape Cod

    Thanks for the info. I was looking at state parks but they all seem to have a no alcohol rule. We are not big drinkers but a couple of pints at the end of the day around a fire pit usually is a nice thing. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. Cape Cod

    Planning a trip to Cape Cod next year. We have a 21’ Mako CC we plan on taking. We would like to stay in a campsite that has water access but I haven’t been able to find any yet. We have a slide in camper to stay in. We were hoping to stay around the Sandwich area and drop the camper off of the truck to explore. If anyone has any information on camping and or the fishing including time of year I would be very appreciative. Thanks . Mitch. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Have 2 of these riggers as well. Lost the led on one couple years ago. Put a counter on it. Box still runs. Looked for the control unit . Very tough to find. They do come up on eBay occasionally . Good luck. Mitch.
  8. 95 Yamaha 200 hp tilt piston. Good morning folks. Have a question about bleeding the trim and tilt piston on my outboard. Tilt piston was leaking so I got all the new seals and O-rings took it apart and rebuilt it. Put oil in the reservoir and started cycling it. Trim works but tilt not so much. The reservoir won't take any more oil. Can't lift motor past full trim. What is my next step. Thanks for any help. Mitch.
  9. I’ll take it. I need a few minutes to get back to you again. The LC
  10. Henderson Harbour this weekend. Good morning everybody. I'm looking for a little insight on what to expect weather wise this weekend. I see rain on Saturday and some wind. Have fished there quite a few times. We will be running a 21' Mako CC. With the wind forecast, what should I be expecting for wave heights. Will be staying at Wescott Beach state park. Am I better off driving into Henderson to launch or is it close enough to just run out of the park. Was planning on fishing the finger but shipping lanes are possible depending on waves. Thanks for any information anyone would like to share. Mitch. Blue Mako CC. Red Bimini. White F-250 King Ranch.
  11. Trailer break ?

    If you already have hydraulic brakes, check out kodiak brakes electric over hydraulic system. I have hydraulic discs on my Ace custom aluminum trailer. They are the best. Found on high end horse and travel trailers. I don't know if they will work with drum brakes but gives you another option. We have a 201 Mako CC that we pull from Ottawa to Port Charlotte Florida. we have about 17,000 miles on this trailer and I still love it. The activator is about $700 but if it will work with your drums that may be all you need. Our tow vehicle is a 2008 F-250 King Ranch and the Mako comes in around 5000lbs I think. This combination tows amazingly well. Good luck. Mitch.
  12. Copper and wire similar ??
  13. You guys are making it sound good! Can't wait til Wednesday . Hopefully get the late afternoon fish in! Keep up with the great reports.
  14. Good luck to all for this weekend. Looking forward to next week. Thought I was going to have to cancel next week after finding out we lost a bearing on the trailer either coming home from Florida or heading up to my parents place on the lake. Spent today putting new bearings in left side wheels. Right side grease looked good but will change out cheap offshore bearings for good US or Canadian bearings when I get back.
