  1. Hi Folks- Looking for an older Humminbird snap on combo unit for my Neighbor. He's a retired Vet (80) who fishes quite a bit and is on a tight budget so this is on me. Any models from the Humminbird older line that are combo units that snap on the base--like 363c, 500's, 600's, 700's --they are foolproof for 80 year old eyes--snap and go The plugs on the lowrance are a pain to take on and off (he had a 4x someone stole)---not sure about garmin. My budget is $150-200 plus $20 shipping to Florida Let me know what you fisherman have and want to sell and help out this Old West By God Virginian Veteran who fishes Lake Okeechobee once a week. Thanks Coach

Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United SOLD thnx
  7. My son lives in franklin mass. Since he got his Traeger grill, he is a meat fisherman. In the stocked streams by his house, He kills it with a 1/2 crawler on a slow death hook. We just did this Sunday. Place a small splitshot 12'' above the hook and reel slow and steady. In two hours at 2 spots, I caught 3, he caught 5 & we kept the 3 that were 14-15'' for the Traeger smoker. the browns, brookies and rainbows could not pass up the slow roll of the slow death hook. Just sayin...... good luck
  8. yes i missed the 6 hours--probably 7-8 lol but i am sure the adirondacks have similar places---look for a used canoe for the family to take, no registration for paddle power may become a summer tradition--avoid the black fly time though good luck coach
  9. https://www.nhstateparks.org/visit/state-parks/lake-francis-state-park --lake francis state park in northern NH--great fishing in 2 story lake and rent a canoe there https://www.frostpondcamps.com --excellant 200 acre brook trout lake in maine's wilderness--camp and rent a canoe--nightcrawlers and non-lead splitshot all you need i am sure there are similar places in NY. Frost pond is a phenomenal place--true wilderness for miles and great fishing. i would definitely rent a canoe as having the boys on the water will be great memories. you may even buy a used one by your home for little $$.( 100-300) at the 2 spots I recommended, cell service is spotty at best. This is a great trip for you all. good luck coach
  10. if you do sodus point, which is a great suggestion--the finger lakes are right there for alternative days--i am partial to cayuga. good luck
  11. FLEAS SUCK I fished the finger lakes as a young man and into my early thirties, no such thing as a FLEA-- 56 now. Two years ago I took my family from Florida to Niagra Falls and towed my boat. We stayed on cayuga lake for 5 days and it was mid july and we hammered the fish.. Months before, I found this site and learned about those little monsters. I am so glad I did as I prepared my equipment. We had a spectacular five days and caught the slam 4/5 days. I will never fish there again during flea season. I hated the heavy line stuff. When I retire in a few years, we will hit it in may or june or late sept. to avoid the pests anyway--thanks to LOU for preparing me good fishin coach
