  1. I have two hang on stands, both 18” x 26”, fold down seat etc. also lots of climbing sticks will sell separate or put a package deal together for all of it or make you a set really not interested in shipping, but will help with getting them someplace reasonably close to Elmira NY will price it based on whatever someone wants!
  2. Pretty easy to do i your self! Halls Marine, next to Halls Lumber down on 15 just past Lawerenceville I’m sure will help you, great guys, very fair, honest!
  3. Send me a txt 607-738-4168 I might be in Rochester this weekend , might have an interest in it thanks just send your address, if I can coordinate with you I will try
  4. I fish out of Sodus, weekdays only, on good weather days. This is my 6th year dry docking at Sodus. The weather/waves were brutal all year, may it next to impossible to plan more than the evening before! Normal year would be 12 to 14 days from J7 etc Labor Day, this year 6 only, with one of those being a blowoff at 10. i target Kings so really can only comment on them, did not find as many fish or large Pods of fish, but my catch rate per hour was about like other years, just under one per Fishing hour. i think we will continue to see fewer fish because of stocking cuts and the elimination of pen rearing in various ports
  5. Thank you all for the help and advice! Trailer was repaired today by Gary at Eagle Welding in Wolcott as suggested! was lucky enough that axle held together enough to launch boat just a few hundred yards from were I had to leave it last week. Made it to Eagle without a further break and they did a great job squaring it up and welding it. Great people, great customer service!
  6. Launching boat yesterday and noticed back set of trailer wheels tilted funny. Dual axle Yacht Club trailer back axle frame rusted through and cracked. Still in tact but imo not safe to tow, boat and trailer in Sodus. anybody know a repair trailer place up there? has anybody ever had one of these welded? trailer is in pretty good shape otherwise thanks
  7. Agree! I spoke with the Town Manager earlier this year, nice guy, provided all the details. He understands and explained the dock was built to the exact specifications that the state required for the to get the grant $ to build the new dock. I asked about a temporary floater for this year, no money. The town has now applied for another grant to add something, maybe a floater?, to make it usable. He explained that might happen next year. The town people I spoke to were very informative, the two guys were both fisherman and they wanted it fixed too, just following the exact direction of NYS. Nothing is easy fishing from Sodus this year!
  8. I have been launching at Bay Bridge Bait Store this year, it’s been fine. i tried the public launch in early June and found it very tough and a bit unsafe with my 23’ Cuddy. There are people launching there, small boats, jet skis and bass boats. You can’t really tie off to the dock and park your truck.
  9. It was! You could really fish! Different combos and spreads, easy to change, not much flea! and you didn’t have to hold on with one hand trying to stay in the boat!
  10. Perfect conditions today, lots of boats too! Started getting stuff set at about 170’ , temp break was at 100 down, 47 degrees. Fished out to about 330 feet, not many fish, very little bait, went back around a little more west, more of the same but kept going out, at 388’ got a small king , Carbon 14 down 115. Landed fish and 330’ back dipsy took a high teens king in 400 feet. That was it, overall perfect weather, nice water, didn’t find many fish!
  11. 15# Shark Weight Black, one only. like new condition black can drop off between Pine City NY and Sodus Point or arrange for a pick up 75.00
  12. I fish Sodus, yes water is low. Using public launch is very difficult and a little unsafe because the dock is so far off the water. Small boats, jet skis etc use it, but to launch, tie off and park is nearly impossible. there are several other places, all 6-12 miles away
  13. A couple of additional pictures also price reduction to 7800.00
  14. Thanks again for the info, my first timers cancelled but I headed out solo this morning expecting to find fairly calm conditions, the forecast was wrong! The bay was even choppy! I have a gps location for the depth people suggested that’s been great for several years, started setting up in 170, by 190 outside dipsey/wire takes off, nice king. Had him ready to net and downrigger releases, he fights the rod holder while I net first one. Rigger fish escapes! Tried to turn around, no good, brought in lines and headed to shallow water, until it rained. i think it could have been a great day, weather and waves were bruttal
  15. Thank you all for the information! Having a reasonable starting point with only 4 or 5 hours to fish is very helpful.
  16. Does anybody have any current Sodus area intel to offer? Headed up this week with two first timers, hoping to hook them up! thanks
  17. I had the same thing happen and lost the probe! The Cannon customer service rep was very nice and responsive however would only send new Cannon cable at No Charge. She was polite and explained it happens often, “we get bad cable from our manufactures”! When it happened the second time I changed my cable on both downriggers.
