  1. 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?

    Tall Tails unfortunately the information you have been told regarding the sanctuary preventing off-shore windmills is not correct.  I am a member of the sanctuary Advisory Committee and have been in direct contact with New York State officials that would be involved in off-shore windmills. They have stated that the sanctuary would not prevent future off-shore windmills from being constructed.
     
    The point of this post is not about windmills but the fact that NOAA does not want to be upfront with the public with their proposed regulations at the time they announce the plans for the Lake Ontario marine sanctuary and then submit them only after all public comments are closed in September.  What sanctuary regulations is NOAA attempting to hide and from public comment?

  2. 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.

    This time of year can be challenging on the Lower even for experienced river guides. There is lots of spawning bait and a plethora of moss coming down--particularly on a strong SW wind. 
    The latest forecast I saw tonite says T storms most likely after 2 pm Saturday. Of course there's no guarantees but there are enough fish within a few miles of shore that it should be worthwhile to hit the lake for you.

  3. 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.

  4. Thank goodness! I'm taking my nephew and his boys Saturday June 26.


    I don't normally post a whole lot, but figured with the poor fishing lately it would be nice to share a great night out of Wilson. Started setting rods at 6:30 PM in 245 fow about 3 miles west of port and headed east. Found 52 degrees at 80 fow along with some decent marks. 5 minutes later the dipsey with wonder bread MC Rocket set 300 out on a 3 setting goes off. Grabbed the pole but nobody was home. Only hit on meat. A few minutes goes by and the 70 rigger fires on frost bite spoon. 12# steel head hits the deck. Few minutes later 80 rigger goes off on glow frog spoon and a nice 20 pound king is netted. Had a white/green dot spinny with Pro-Am fly take several fish as well. Sun starts to drop and we switch over to Carbon 14 that always works for us late. Definitely didn't let us down as it took 4 more fish the last 30 minutes. In all went 14 for 17. Mostly kings with a few steel head and cohos mixed in. Enjoy!IMG_1528_20210622_231146.thumb.jpeg.bf6da805c35874cc1277290e9abb37a5.jpegIMG_1545_20210622_231146.thumb.jpeg.f71e7c892cfb178f4a2a9574da0287ae.jpegIMG_1544_20210622_231146.thumb.jpeg.5f6a6d0a8945d849cd6e8d079c0940ce.jpeg

  5. Good to hear, congrats!

    Headed straight out of port and got set up in 180’ at 6am and trolled due north.  We got to 315’ before we had our first bite.  Bay Rat NBK mag spoon on a 300 weighted steel with an inline board took a 10# steelhead.  My son was thrilled when it broke the water surface.  We got out to 397’ and a wire dipsey set at 280’, #2 setting with a 10” Mountain Dew spin doctor and a JB custom fly called “showtime” screamed out to 600’ before my son could stop it.  Ten minutes later we had a 24# king on deck and my 8 year old was beaming.  Personal best for him by several pounds.  Ended up 8/12 on the day.  2 kings, 3 steelhead, 3 coho.  All fish were taken between 260-400 FOW.  Temp break was right around 60-65’ down.  Great morning on the water.  Hopefully a sign that things are improving.  89F56A76-B923-489E-BC97-4245D6A6C851.thumb.jpeg.69f51109cc07aa876b735e62be726676.jpeg7135CA92-9561-4443-B9D4-CAB8AF9DE04D.thumb.jpeg.348555c989633de6ce1c48844f1f57b1.jpeg

  6. Just joking a little with you. You did the right thing.

    Ah the info I sent wasn't a solution. I just suggested a knowledgeable mechanic that knew a lot about Tohatsu's and I didn't want to publically post the info as I didn't have his permission to do so.

  7. Get one of these and be done with it. You see the buildup of water in the bottom sight glass you open the petcock drain it into a cup and the water and sludge is gone I run these on all my hunting and fishing boats.PXL_20210619_222156707.thumb.jpg.796153453453f55e0facb3f2457f90be.jpg

    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.

  8. Geeze, when is the Fishing going to pick up? Seems like an abnormal year.

    Went 3/4. One teenage king. one smaller king, and one coho. Missed another teenage king. 250-275 fow. Wire diver with hammer fly (230 lead), UV green dolphin on rigger down 45, and salmon slapper on braid dipsy (150 lead) produced fish. Similar to last report in that I couldn't get a pattern going. Changed colors and spoon sizes all day. Sounds like some fish were being caught deeper. Typical June day I guess. Thought we would find some steelhead but none wanted to cooperate. Weather was great though.

  9. I have the itroll with hunt mode. It works great. I use hunt mode now and then and it works well at varying your speed in increments on the way up and down to the min and mac throttle settings you program in. You can also program the step size, for example 1 percent or 5 percent steps. The larger step size gives more of a radical speed change, supposedly causing fish to think the prey is escaping.

  10. Ok all, I got it done. And I appreciate everyone's comments and advice. I didn't take offense to anything anyone said, so I'm not sure what that post was all about. But, I decided to go by the old adage, "better safe than sorry"! I bought two 55 blue plastic drums, and a little siphon hand pump. First I siphoned out about 30 gallons so when I removed the sending unit the gas wouldn't be gushing out since I thought I had quite a bit in this 92 gallon tank. This first 30 or 40 gallons looked good, no water or sludge. I just siphoned right through the filter can and used the primer bulb hose. After that, the tank sending unit hole was easily accessible. I removed it, and I then stuck the hose all the way to the bottom, and finished sucking out all the gas. This went into the other barrel, and it had water and sludge in it. I'm guessing but probably 2 maybe 3 gallons of bad stuff. It's hard to judge. But the tank looked pretty good. I used a sponge to soak up the last of it. So, I will put a new filter on, and fill her back up with non ethanol which is all I use. As for the gas in the barrels, I'm quite sure the 30 gallons in the one barrel is good, but it will go in the mower, not the boat. The 4 or 5 gallons of bad stuff, I will call around and find a place. This boat is a 1982, so that's a long time for water to accumulate. Everything seems tight and sealed. One advantage was I got to calibrate my fuel sending arm/float mechanism which I believe was way off after checking it. Thanks for your help! IMG_20210619_140746855.jpegIMG_20210619_164415125.jpeg

  11. There's a formula for how fast a motor will push a boat, if the motor is not large enough to get the boat on plane. If it won't get the boat up on plane, it makes no difference if it's a 9.9 or 20. That's what the book, or article said, and I believe it was US Coast Guard document. It has to do with the size and width of the hill, length, etc, and the horsepower of the mother wasn't even part of the formula!

  12. Yes, you can find used trailers, trouble is you have to take the old rotted out boat that's sitting on them.... LOL

    Hey Guys,
        Always appreciate the great feedback from this forum.  I was able to get my boat to a local welder and waiting to see the end result.  He was a bit reluctant to take it on due to a liability issue.  I told him, please don't worry.  Should get it back tomorrow or Friday.  I have been scouting for used trailers and they seem to be few and far between.  Not into buying a new one but it may come to that.  I'll post the end result when I get it.  Thanks again to all of you....greatly appreciated.
     
    Regards,
     
    Bob

  13. Oh ok. I changed the filter last spring. Ran it all summer. Then I thought I would check it today since once in a while at full throttle the motor would back off a few hundred RPMs for a few seconds. I thought maybe hysterisis in the cable might be the cause, but now that saw that water that in the filter I'm thinking maybe that was it. I ordered a new filter today.

     
    I was referring to the filter not the tank. If its been a season or more I would change it out and check it for water again after a few trips to see where you stand.
