  1. Went again today, July 5 and caught 3. Lost 3. A little better day than so far this year for me. Only my 4th trip out I think though. Then it got rough so we gave it up around 4 pm. We were in 280 to 325 FOW. Didn't mark much. Set riggers at 40 and 55, then finished at 70. Tried 200 foot copper, two dipseys, two riggers. Mix of spoons, FF, and meat.

  2. I never start that shallow I usually go out to about 150..... maybe I should start shallower. The trouble is if they are deep, by the time you troll all the way out it's late morning and the bite is over, always been a Catch 22 for me.....

  3. Struggling again. It's not been a good year for me. Started out in 200 FOW, Trolled North. My two guests got sick immediately, so I had to take back in at 0730. First time on a boat. They should have taken the dramamine the night before. I caught one nice Coho on a 200 copper on a FF with 42nd SD in about 180 FOW just before I took them back to ramp. Went back out after dropping the sick ones at the dock. Went to about 200 FOW, nothing. Went to 305 FOW, nothing. Then it got rough. They missed the forecast.

  4. Why is it so difficult to maintain reasonable water levels? How long have we had this problem? Seems like a recent problem to me, so what changed in the last ten years?...start there. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Amazing what can be done with fiberglass. The top is not structural so it's definitely not critical. It can be done using basic fiberglass layup techniques, as I am seeing from all the input here, and online. I do most everything myself to save money, and in my budget.

  6. After Completely rebuilding two Transoms, this should be a cake walk. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Oh that makes sense. Plus I looked it up and I guess it's better to wear out Pinion gear than a Flywheel! Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Why would a steel gear cause a problem? I tried but I couldn't get the starter off. It wouldn't drop down far enough, it's hitting a vacuum port. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Hey you know what, I think you may be right. I never thought of that, and the pinion is right there engaging the flywheel on the other side. I will take the cover and inspect it. Thanks! Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. I see this material called King Starboard. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. I was going to say, the damage is all one side, and appears to be above water line. Looks to be fixable, not withstanding the question about the engine which I don't know about. But a brand new motor can fail also. I would consider just pulling off the damaged canvas, buying a cheap Bimini, and patching, sanding, painting it. It will catch just as many fish as it did before. Hell my wife never goes anyways, and I can't find a girlfriend, so a Fishing boat is all I need. Also, the fishing sucks do far this year so you aren't missing anything yet.

  12. I guess for now I will just change, check it twice a year. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. I have an HDS 7..... I am wondering why you are changing the transducer? Is there something not right with the original? Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. I don't know if this is anything to worry about but I'm guessing it's not normal. I am seeing very tiny gold particles on my flywheel and engine. I believe it's something to do with charging system or the ignition system. Evinrude 175, 1993 model. See pictures. I would appreciate your thoughts on this.

  15. I'm sure this can be done, maybe using the canvas top as a pattern, and making a mold. Does anyone have experience with this? Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. I think this Year has totally stunk for the high winds, waves, and poor fishing. I Know that's fishing, but with our very short summers, it disappointing. I'm moving to Texas in the early spring, and I hope the gulf coast fishing provides more days on the water available. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. I'm in the FAA, and our regulations always have to have. NPRM (notice of proposed rulemaking) period where the regulation is published, along with background information, and public comments are gathered. Then, FAA publishes an answer to the public comments, and answers why or why not it is adopting the comments. Why doesn't NOAA have a similar requirement?

  18. Thanks Captain! I was going to cancel because they are saying 1 to 3 Building to 2 to 4. Earlier today it said 2 feet or less. But early morning to noon might be okay. I think we'll venture out of Olcott and give it try. It's the only day my nephew has, five kids, and he's a Coach. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. I am wondering if I launch at Fort Niagara to fish the lake, and it's too rough, if it is worth fishing in the lower Niagara this time if year (June 24)? My nephew and his boys are coming up Friday night to fish Saturday out of Olcott, but the weather is iffy with rain and winds at SW 17 MPH. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. Too me, that's too late in the year......if they are staging in front of the creeks getting ready for the run up to spawn, and die, they are very difficult to get to strike anything. That's been my 4 year's experience fishing for them. You'll see hundreds on your fishfinder stacked up, but no bites Maybe someone else will tell you different, I'm certainly not an expert. But that is my observation. My best fishing seems to be July and into mid August. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. Thank goodness! I'm taking my nephew and his boys Saturday June 26. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. Good to hear, congrats! Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  23. Just joking a little with you. You did the right thing. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  24. Looks like a good concept, but after looking at the online reviews, it seems these these can come apart at the seams, and might not be built the best. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  25. Won't matter anymore. The system is rigged now, and they got away with it. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
