  1. Here's more pictures. Bullseye's at 20, 30, and 35 yards! They hit 3 inches right and 3 inches Lower than the Field points. So made a slight adjustment and this is the result. I unscrew the head, pull the arrow, and fire again, and it hits in the black every time. I could not be more happy. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  3. After over 40 years of bow hunting and trying many types and brands of broadheads I eventually settled on the Two blade Rage. But, I was never totally happy with them because of the retaining o rings or plastic rings. I just bought some EXODUS fixed broadheads. Sacrificed one for target shooting. After a slight sight adjustment, these broadheads fly and shoot better than my Field points! Bullseye's at 20, 30 and 35 yards which is my max. I thought it might be a fluke so I screwed another head onto a different arrow. Same result. These things are amazing. Made in the USA. I will attempt to post pictures but this forum usually doesn't allow me to. EXODUS full points. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Yep, me too. They don't bite. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Yes, jack mackerel works too Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Well I haven't used them much, but I just use the tuna from can. Fill the Space. You also use anchovies paste, and I was thinking of buying some Racoon bait from FNT post. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I had a brads super bait on too. Filled mine with tuna. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. How has your Walleye Fishing been? Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Nothing! My dismal fishing season continues. On advice of a charter deck hand went to 450 and trolled to 500 fow. Two hours of zilch with nothing on the screen. Had 45 degrees 95 down.so went into 259 fow since there was a line of boat trolling at 300. I had 46 degrees as I recall, down 80. Do temp seemed fine. Saw one bait ball. No marks. Gave up. But my new lower unit is working good. Yesterday went to Catt Creek for walleyes, and it is just as bad. Nobody catching, and little to nothing on the screen. 2020 sucks.

  10. I run them the chute all the time. Last time, it got into a dipsey. Had to cut out 100 feet of copper to get it undone. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Thanks, I'll try the state launch. I did not get up there yet. That trip fell through. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Yes, every time I release a fish (almost) it floats away......so I don't Release them anymore unless they're caught off a rigger. I need one of those fish grabbers I guess. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Motor is running good now. I found a broken clamp on the fuel line, so I don't know if it was getting air, and if that caused anything or not. Boat hasa 90 gal tank, and I have it piped to both the 175HP, and the 9.8 kicker (which is a 4 stroke). With the VRO I am very happy that I just have an oil tank for the big 175 2 stroke, and no oil/fuel mixing. I suppose at some point the VRO will be unavailable and the decision will be made for me.
  14. So my lower unit went bad, and I needed to get the anti theft gizmo nut off. What a job. Nothing on YouTube worked. Of course bought it used so no key. So here's how I did it. I bought a Dremel tool and used the cutting wheel. I slit/cut the cylinder shaped thing that just spins around the actual nut. I cut it in two opposite sides. Then still had to hammer chisel each half off the shaft. Then used vice grips on the now damaged nut to remove it. Seriously, I would NEVER put one of these on, and I'd rather have my prop stolen. I like to be able the easily remove my prop to remove debris and fishing line. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Thanks for all the advice! I ordered a new SEI manufactured unit. But, I also wanted to know if mine was really bad. So I tore it down and found one broken pinion gear tooth, a rounded of forward gear tooth, and a rounded off reverse gear tooth. So, I think the best bet is the $895 SEI unit, and I did buy their Driveshaft so I can just snap it into the lower unit. Should be here Friday.

  16. Thanks guys. L&M contacted me and said he could tear down and replace the seals and see what if anything is bad. Which was good to know that he can do that. I was told some slivers on the magnets are normal. I think mine has a little more than normal, and the oil has water in it. Rather than try a seal kit, and tear down/inspection, I opted for a new unit for $895 and 3 year warranty from Mariners Warehouse, florida. It was one of those decisions you know, tear don, and overhaul, or new unit I can bolt on (hopefully) myself.
  17. thanks for the input. I replaced the fuel lines when I got the rig about 3 years ago. I do need to replace the fuel filter separator can though. new 3 years ago, and never did anything with it. I'll keep the conversion as an option. The VRO has worked well......until the other day, if that was it. Those VRO pumps are $450 for the OEM. I just ordered a brand new lower unit. I was told some slivers on the magnets are normal. I think mine has a little more than normal, and the oil has water in it. Rather than try a seal kit, and tear down/inspection, I opted for a new unit for $895 and 3 year warranty from Mariners Warehouse, florida.
  18. Ok, my lower unit is making metal. Oil is milky. Can anyone recommend a good Marine Engine Mechanic that can get me back in service ASAP? I don't think I want to tackle this myself unless I have to. Site won't allow me to post pictures. Evinrude 1992 model EX175ENC. HELP!. I will tow boat to your facility, or you can come here, but it has to stay on the transom. Garry. 716 481 9875. Please Call me. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. UPDATE: Motor started and ran flawlessly down the Niagara River and back for 16 miles round trip. So, I have no idea what was causing the starting/rich issue. But, I may have other problems. Motor was making clacking sound I've never heard before (or am I being paranoid now?) . Concerned because when I changed the lower gear oil a few trips ago, there were metal slivers on the magnets, and the oil was milky. So, I'll drain it and check this today. Not what I need. Looks complicated. Nothing coming from prop area, so if its leaking its an internal seal driveshaft maybe...UGH!
  20. I want to know what Broke off finds out too. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. Went to Buffalo Harbor Saturday. I got gas that morning. Motor started but would only run a few minutes and quit. It would only start when choked. I did this about 6 to 10 times then gave up and brought it home. Pulled plugs, all six looked good, but all were wet. Reinstalled, and tried it, and Motor started and ran very rough with lots of smoke, more than I've ever seen. Eventually the smoke cleared. Retried a few times and it starts right up now. Any ideas on what would cause this? Evinrude E175ENC. has the VRO with oil mix tank. This is a 1992 Motor. Bought this boat 4 years ago and this Motor has started and ran flawlessly every time. I always use REC 90 gas. I'm taking it out on lake this morning to try it again. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. I'll be trying this for sure. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  23. Thanks, I was wondering about that wind shift. Maybe if the shift to the west occurs later, a morning trip will be ok. If I launch at Fort Niagara I guess if it gets too bad I can go into the river and fish for something. Never fished the river. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  24. Looks like they are saying 1 to 3 feet from Niagara River to Hamlin Beach. This means actual 2 to 6 footers which is probably too rough to fish. But I'm wondering if you think it may be calmer out of Fort Niagara, as opposed to Olcott? Your thoughts are welcomed. Thanks in advance. Trying to get out Sunday if possible.

  25. Thanks I didn't have any spro swivels so I twisted them together and covered them with heat shrink. Sent from my moto z3 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
