  1. I have only seen one salmon on the scale over 40 and I used to weigh fish for the ESLO from 86 to 90. I know that's a short time but been fishing salmon since 77. The one I saw over 40 was an old couple named John and his wife Rita they were from down near jamestown and they came every fall for a month to troll in Oak Orchard for salmon. They caught it on a Pink Ping a tee lure right by way was the three bridges. I was fishing that day and had stopped at what was Hatch and Elam's just to shoot the **** like I did all the time since I was good friends with the owners. They brought the fish in and Chris Elam put it on the scale I forgot exactly what it was but it was mid 40's. Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Nope and I have been fishing the lake since the late 70's. I remember a lot of 30 lb fish. you heard about 40 lb fish but when they hit a real scale they were low 30's . Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Pm sent about lot 1 Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. I am sure it happened, but think about a meat rig with the teasers. I am sure they hit those some times. I know every year I snag at least 1 a year on flasher flies. I am.sure they wack at the flasher. Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Never did it with j-pligs but use to run 2 kwik fish in the river sometimes. Would take hooks off first one and then tie a 8 inch pcs of line from first split ring to second one with the hooks. It would work pretty good some days and sometime I would get a bunch of hits that I missed. You also had to run that really slow, because they really wobbled all over the place Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. That's what I said lol I was going to check but my old 47lc's are tucked away some where and I could not find them. Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I believe the handles from the 47h and 47sh fit the 47lc. The newer sg47lc's do not. The drive gear and shaft I believe are the same on those older reels so the handles even if they don't look the same should work. I used to work on those older ones alot, and if my memory is correct that might help you in finding use ones on ebay. Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Also if the wheel has play that's bad. Most can be tightened up with the hub nut. Just don't over tighten it. Then spin it if it feels smooth freeze it up and tow away. I have put a lot of miles on trailer bearings, and have had to change a few. Another way to know if they are going bad is feel them right after you tow it a ways if they are more than just warm there time is up. Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. I have run the yellow eagle claw rods for year with wire never had a problem. I have a set that are from the early 90's that the coating is all falling off and the handles and reel.seats are all worn out but guides are still fine. I bought a new set like 4 years ago just because the old ones looked so bad. Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. I bought an interstate battery this year and it won't even run my livewell for more then an hour and it's at like 10volts imo they are junk your better off buying the cheap walmart brand. Very very unimpressed with interstate I will not ever buy another one. Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. I gave up on that powder and went back to pellets. Both my guns shoot lights out. And my load is the triple 7 mag pellets they come In a red box. And hornady low drag 250 sst's.. I have everyone I my hunting group shooting the same load now and everyone's guns shoot great with it. Also so easy to load. Yes you have to clean more. But I will take that over poor proformance, some times poor ignition of black horn. If you keep shooting that make sure find a drill bit that fits in your breach plug and keep the hole really clean if not you will someday have a miss fire Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Anyone know if the ramp is open yet? If not what are mayers hours? Or is there any where else on the bay to launch Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. If it has good compression it's fine nothing else from overheating would make it run bad. I would not give up. I still sounds electrical and fuel related . Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Have you tried a remote gas tank? Maybe the tank has a small blockage in the puck up? Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Now that's the best advice you can get. My boat will troll slow enough with out bags, but i run them all the time. They help so much , help control speed,and make your motor run better. Trolling plates suck think about it, what makes a boat steer is the thrust of water coming off the prop. With a plate it comes out all over, out the sides , the top and the bottom. So how can you steer very well with it.? Take that plate off and sell it for scrap, and get some good bags and rig them just like he said. And always run them both. Trust me you will be glad you did.
