  1. Thanks guys, glad to hear from you. I can squeeze you in with me Hornet.
  2. That time again. Ready to roll tomorrow morning for the annual Labor Day Run. As usual keeping an eye on the wave forecast. Heads up on some starting #'s would be great. Usually start with a spoon spread then FFs. Looks like nice weather except for Sunday afternoon. See you on Mexico bay.
  3. Hello folks, hope all is well. Took some of the boys to Cranberry Lake this past weekend for an overdue pike and bass trip. Kind of a joint mission. Wanted to visit my mom in the lake and return my step father to her side. Those of you who may remember the original thread, pre covid, my son is a recovering addict. He has a little over 2 yrs clean and today is his birthday. He's 32 and put himself through cdl school and is scheduled to go out west for his 1st runs. Took him to the bus terminal yesterday, reminded me of when I left for Paris Island at 18. Rebuilt the misty harbor over the spring and took her and my stepson's's rig on his 1st adk experience. We primitive camped on the islands, barging a canoe with way too much gear,lol. Great trip. Absolute emotional roller coaster, weather included. Had a storm roll in one night and woke up to the sound of aluminum banging on rocks nothing some touch up paint can't handle but the scares might just stay there. Builds character. The last day while we were breaking camp a pair of loons came to visit our cove. They called and shrilled and preaned each other like 2 lost lovers. After a few minutes the male swam over to within a few yards of the new misty as if he was inspecting it. Everyone's hair was on end. That was his boat, and now it's my son's.
  4. Thanks ,hope all is well
  5. I'm no painter, but if you have a good base don't strip it to bare aluminum. Mine is a 98, had a decent factory base. Used the rusto etching primer on bare spots and rivets. It's not an auto body job but looks a he'll of alot better. I was going to clear coat but a good coat of wax is fine for me. It'll be all scuffed up by the end of the season anyway. If you go cheaper with Ruston, stick to the same primer. Did alot of research 1st.
  6. Good old Rusto pro. Takes forever to cure. But not too shabby for a buggy backyard Wagner shoot.😉
  7. She's small but fishes hard. Thanks, heading for the Adirondack next week, then Cayuga, then the yearly Mexico drill.
  8. I'd love to have a slob grease stain on my wall of shame. I'll see what I can do, thanks buddy. Sent from my SM-G900P using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Hey folks, been busy with kitchen remodel, and overdue home maintenance. Just gotta say Hachimo, Hell Yeh. Boat looks great. Hopefully get my rig finished by memorial day weekend. Good fishing guys, hopefully everyone is still upright. Sent from my SM-G900P using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Another simple post recognizing a horrific day in our lives turns into a debate. My dad was a Pearl Harbor survivor. He told me a story of rescue trying to get the men out of the Oklahoma. In the process of trying to cut hatches in the hull, alot of sailors died from suffocation from torches. Guess they should have just stood buy and waited for silence before they started cutting. Take down the fn thread. SMH Sent from my SM-G900P using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Yeh, I was looking for you labor day weekend. I thought maybe you were running out of Oswego. 3 and out for me this year. Still had great fun. Good luck my friend, I'll be in the neighborhood, lol. Sent from my SM-G900P using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  13. 1st trip up in early August Ty and I were at the 160 the day after a blow. 2 to 4 ft rollers but no wind or breaks. Totally duable but head on a swivel. Only a couple boats out in deeper water. Coast Guard came around the stacks and hung off port bow at 100yds, so as to not interfere with my troll. After glassing my boat for several mins, a wave and a single horn blast they were on they're way back towards Oswego. Where they on random patrol or did someone put a word out to check on me? Who knows, it was comforting to know they felt I was good. Every year we all dodge a bullet, some take a direct hit. Those guys are awesome as well as the fellow humans who risk running in instead of running away. Thanks for keeping me safe and aware. Sent from my SM-G900P using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  15. Almost got suckered in for a suicide run. I think the O said I'm done for the season. Great job Logger. This thread became an awesome place for folks to share they're information and a few proud moments. It's been fun. Sent from my SM-G900P using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  17. The pleasure is all mine kid. Have a peaceful fall and winter. We will definitely load you up for browns. Been a fun season even though I jinxed myself with the stupid bananas. Tons of laughs, all I ever need. They're just fish. So many folks on here are top notch. We'll be just fine! Sent from my SM-G900P using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  21. What's the weather and wave update for this weekend? I'm seeing mostly south easterly 10 to 15 with 1' or less. Sounds risky for a solo suicide run, but coho's are hard to resist. If they're in closer than the 100 might be doable. Sent from my SM-G900P using Lake Ontario United mobile app
