  1. Dan, I'm in a similar situation as you. Currently got a 16' but am looking to upsize eventually too. Due to this, I keep an eye out for cuddy's and such and saw this one: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/391070011880426/. It's outside my budget and is a bit older style than you were looking for, but newer motor and kicker would make me feel more comfortable on the lake. Best of luck on the search!
  2. Think that's the same boat I reached out about on craigslist too [emoji38]. Nice rig and glad someone from LOU got it. Best of luck and glad you're getting back out there Sent from my SM-A515U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. I second this. Irish Hammer is a great boat with a great captain. Corbett is the man
  4. Anyone else catch the "mostly" there? lol Make sure you got sun screen on the right places then
  5. Dumb things I do to catch more fish according to my wife: bought a boat, riggers, poles, lures, gear, fish finder, etc. The above doesn't necessarily equate to more fish for me though, so I'll prove her wrong [emoji1787] Sent from my SM-A515U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Awesome work man. I've enjoyed following this build and looks great so far. Just hope you're able to get it out and enjoy it soon [emoji38] Sent from my SM-A515U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Alternator would be nice but only have a little 4hp Yamaha 4 stroke kicker so not sure it would be possible Sent from my SM-A515U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. I agree. I try to be as safe as possible and do actually have two batteries on my boat. The one for the main motor, which was having issues, and one for my bow mounted trolling motor. On Saturday I just grabbed the bow mounted battery and hooked it up to the main to get back to the launch. Kinda a pain and if it got hairy quick it could be an issue. A switch is a good idea.

  9. Glad to hear everyone is safe. Hope you can get the boat you want and get back on the water. Just think: not much you could have done about hitting an unseen/unmarked object in the water but you did an awesome job making sure everyone was safe.

  10. Thanks for the feedback folks! Didn't know there was a difference and just thought a marine battery was a marine battery. Looked up the part number and looks like its a starting/cranking battery so that might be the issue? I'll give the water level a check too. Not sure of the age. It came with the boat when I got it two years ago. Thanks again! Sent from my SM-A515U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Over the weekend I took my boat out and the main motor, which runs off a single battery, starts right up fine. It runs for about 15 min to get to our spot and then i shut if off and run a kicker. After about 6 hours of fishing, and running a helix 5 and 2 electric big jons off the same battery, the main motor will barely turn over from the same battery and not be able to start. I wouldn't think the riggers would drain a battery like that, but i'm not sure if it's a power consumption issue or if the battery is just getting old and needs replacing? Also, just had the battery on the charger at 2 amps for about 30 hours and its still not up to 100%. That typical as well?
  12. Thanks! Still learning, but lots of fun. Saw you've been doing well there too! Seems to be a nice little fishery
  13. Had a good day on Owasco yesterday. Trolled the east side of the lake and found pretty good action around 90ish feet. Ended up boating 11 lakers total, which is by far the best day trolling this noob has had yet. Between me and a buddy we ended up keeping 5. Biggest was around 5lbs and caught everything on a gambler death trap and some cowbells. Dont have a fish hawk but best surfice speed for us was around 2.4. Also a first for me was on two separate occasions we just set a line and put it in a rod holder and then immediately had a bite. That was pretty cool and all around fun day.

  14. As Kevin said, the bass elite guys been drop shooting smallies with good results. Heard them say they were fishing anywhere from 10-40' hitting structure Sent from my SM-A515U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
