  1. Good working condition, with several new parts installed, fresh 250 lb test braided line (one trip ran on it) too.  Includes Penn Swivel base and it's already wired for a quick connect.


    New Price - $125.  $100.  Available for pick up in Springville, NY but I'm also in the Chautauqua Lake area nearly every day.  Shipping available at buyers cost.

    get ahold of fine tuned welding on facebook,  he made me some track adapters with rod holders and downrigger mounts for my g3 which is like the lund ones.  He does excellent work and very reasonably priced



  3. Fantastic outfitting job!  I just bought a WT18 Targa.  Do you mind me asking what brand your track adapters are?  I have a couple sets of Big Jon holders I'd like to outfit my new ride with and not sure of what track adapters to buy.

  4. I echo running braid for a backer.  If your fishing walleye or finger lakes, 200-300' of backer will do (just cross your fingers you don't snag). 


    You're not going to be able to fit all that lead on a 20 size reel.  I had a depthmaster 30 that barely held 7 colors.


    In your position, I'd consider putting on only 5 colors on each, using drop weights and adding as much backer as possible.  It'll likely only be a few hundred feet though.  Id save the other spool of lead for down the road.

  5. I moved to Western NY from Pittsburgh about 8 years ago.  A couple years ago, I bought a house in Springville.  Though the taxes are high (to me), I'm pretty happy there.  It's a great community, good schools and about a 40 minute ride to Lake Erie, Buffalo and an hour 15 to Lake Ontario.

  6. There's frequently hundreds of them in my backyard pond throughout Fall.  Theyre nothing more than flying rats (who taste pretty good).  For many people, they are an aggressive nuisance.  Why in the world would they ever want there to be more of those ****birds is beyond me.



  7. Hi guys,


    I upgraded my downriggers and these are just taking up space. They're light weight and have plenty of cable on them. The counters work. Not having a clutch, makes them a bit challenging to use but they work. I always used snubbers for the ball and stuck to an 8lb ball.


    One needs a new terminal end which I might have lying around. Not going to ship them...too much of a pain in the ass.


    Local pick up in Springville, or arrangements can be made to bring them to Dunkirk, Sunset Bay (Cattaraugus Creek), Wilson or Olcott.


    $75 cash or trade. I'm interested in the following:


    - smithwick stick baits

    - 7ft MH trolling Rod

    - Penn 320 and 310 reels

    - Bay Rat stickbaits

    - A-Tom-Mik flies and Spin Doctors


    Make me an offer. Thanks!
