  1. There's lots of campgrounds on the lake, both state and private. For a slip you just need to find your closest Marina. Catfish creek has slips and trailers for rent, Olcott has several AirBnB rentals right in the Newfane Marina, some even include a free slip with a rental. For state campgrounds you have Selkirk Shores State Park and Fair Haven Beach just to name a couple.
  2. By end of May fish will likely be out a little deeper. Not sure what your definition of skinny water is but I'd say you'd be looking at 30-60 fow for browns that time of year. There may even be some Kings around by then too. I'd make sure you have some kind of divers with you (Dipsy, Slide or Chinook), 5-10 color leadcores and your salmon gear just in case.

  4. Okuma Raw II with upgraded boca ceramic orange bearings. Okuma Aventa 13’6 float rod, 3pc with slip reel seat. Reel is all spooled up ready to go, used one day on SR and decided it wasn’t my thing. $300 pickup only Utica/Rome area or possibly Altmar area on the weekend. Pics available on request Okuma SLV 7/8 fly reel loaded with Dacron backing and sink tip fly line. 9’6 Okuma SLV 8wt rod 4pc. This was a backup combo that’s only been used 3-4x $150 pickup only, Pics available upon request.
  5. 30% off Okuma Coldwater Reels in all sizes, thought it was a pretty good deal worth passing along. I know Amazon isn't usually a place I go to looking for fishing gear so maybe some people missed it... https://www.amazon.com/Okuma-Water-Linecounter-Trolling-CW-303D/dp/B008GQ6WBG/?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_w=FHtyM&content-id=amzn1.sym.a5eaa569-8a45-4530-84d2-2dcf8023272a&pf_rd_p=a5eaa569-8a45-4530-84d2-2dcf8023272a&pf_rd_r=EG4QHR95RGQTEVTRBXJ3&pd_rd_wg=1arC9&pd_rd_r=6ce786fb-a252-4d51-8805-b05cd0ea660f&ref_=pd_gw_ci_mcx_mi
  6. I bought an Okuma Convector off him in another thread, he just sent me an email this morning with a pic of the box and shipping label. We communicated via email and I had no issues with him.
  7. Reports from the charter guys out of Mexico make it seem like the fishing is on fire in the bay... I'm seeing reports on fb of double digit numbers of fish landed and 20+ bite trips. I havent been up since last weekend so I guess I'll see for myself tomorrow.
  8. I installed a B60 this past spring and bought the correct crows foot wrench needed to install it. If someone ends up going the B60 route and needs the wrench shoot me a PM and I'll mail it to you to use.
  9. It's already starting.... fish are piled up in 120-150 fow between Sandy Pond and Salmon River as of yesterday. Managed to find a few that wanted to bite but most were not interested in anything we had.
  10. There's a good number of deep water cases made for go-pro cameras that will handle anything the great lakes can offer for depth. I've seen them used on several salt water fishing shows, where guys are deep dropping in 1000ft+. They are not cheap though, I linked one of the less expensive ones that's rated for 500'+. Never used one personally, but what you want is easily achievable if you have the money to spend. https://www.golemgear.com/p-814-gopro-housing-for-gopro-hero-9-and-gopro-hero-10-rated-to-500ft.aspx
  11. I crank a spinning reel left handed, buy specifically LH baitcasting reels (never understood the whole casting/switching hands things?) but with trolling reels I'm much more comfortable cranking with my RH. I think it's due to the fact you usually have a lot more cranking to do on these bigger reels than you ever would on a casting reel. Long lining reels aren't niche per say, but freshwater, level-wind, hi-speed, large spool reels are imo (and LH even more so). Other than great lakes fisherman, what fresh water fishing is going to require a reel that can hold 400yds of 30lb line? There's only a few companies that even make freshwater trolling reels. What you're looking for is prolly much more available in non-level wind, lever drag saltwater reel I'd bet.
  12. Aren't all of the ipilot functions done thru the remote? I thought you need the ipilot Link version in order to connect to your Humminbird sonar to gain the additional functions.
  13. Can’t seem to figure out what’s going on with my kicker. It was running fine all season and then developed a “stumble” one day and I can’t figure it out. I’ve replaced spark plugs, fuel filter, cleaned the carb and tried fresh fuel connected to a separate tank. Still runs like the video below shows. It will never actually stall out and shutoff but it stumbles in every rpm range. Seems to get slightly worse at higher RPMs… any ideas would be appreciated. FullSizeRender.MOV
  14. I've had both Powerdrive and Terrovas in the past, between those two alone the choice is easily the Terrova. The deploy/stow mechanism on the PD models was clunky and awkward to use, plus more power and longer shaft lengths on Terrova models made it a no brainer. I've got no experience with ProNav and honestly never heard of it before seeing this, but I can't imagine there is much it can do that the ipilot can't so Terrova with ipilot would be my choice.
  15. You're already in a niche section of large spool, hi-speed, freshwater, trolling reels and then and even more niche spot of LH retrieve... I'd bet you're going to need to look into saltwater reels to find what you want.
  16. I for sure got skipped... I sent a PM within the first 10 mins of this ad being posted, a 2nd PM the next day and now 4 days later still no response to either PM. I understand you prolly got overwhelmed with PMs and responses... but you skipped possibly the first person to PM you? LOL not a great start
  17. Interested in tekotas and planers, I sent a PM when you first posted this ad earlier today.
