  1. They're fairly inexpensive rods and Sonny's in Pulaski has a pile of them.
  2. Very informative as I haven't been out in a week and a half. Appreciate your efforts in providing this info - Tight lines!
  3. Wow! Nice catch, unbelievable that hook held!
  4. Not a good practice, at all..... Ethanol will absorb the the water and actually fall out of the gasoline making the tank issue worse....... its called phase separation - you'll be left with sub-grade 83 octane unleaded which will cause engine "ping". Your best bet is find a shop with an air pump (for safety reasons), suck out everything in the tank and dispose of it, then start over with non ethanol 91 octane.
  5. I have them in my 205 Trophy......... you'll never want to own another boat without them.
  6. Ran out of Mexico last weekend - 50's top to bottom in 100fow

    I have not had the boat surveyed - The Info I have on this boat is the stringers were done in 2007 and checked out in a 2016 survey. No paperwork to back that claim up, but Marina verified.

  9. Exactly correct - axle out of alignment or bent axle. If it were a bad bearing, the hub would come apart before the tire did.
  10. My wife did this past weekend - and I couldn't help but to laugh at her...... great times, great memories. Out of Mexico - 230 fow - 100 down in 48 degree water....... 2.4mph at the ball. !
  11. Good info Jomat - thanks for sharing!
  12. Fished 5/30 10 -3pm on a NW heading right out the shute. Bait pods abundant in the bay from 50 to 90' but no fish on them. Dropped riggers in 70 fow down 20, 30 and 40 and trolled without moving a rod out to 210'. Water temp throughout the water column was 47 - 49 degrees. At 205 fow had a dipsey on a 2 setting out 65 w/ glow frog flasher atomic fly combo fire, and brought a teen age king to the net only to net the fly but not the fish. Half hour later in 190 fow had my 30 rigger fire, NBK spoon - 60 back, brought a second teen age king to the net only to net the spoon...... I really suck with the net, but my wife can certainly get them to the boat....... Back at it next weekend...
  13. I appreciate the responses. Regulator - I have searched as well and have come up with similar articles. I have to believe that light penetration has many variables and is highly fluctuating in lake Ontario, which leads me to ask - when exactly is, or even, is there a best time to pull glow spoons vs. UV?
  14. Can anyone tell me if there is a device available to show how deep the disphotic zone would be while trolling...... I need some schooling on this and would like to know more. TIA.
  15. I would suggest pushing down on the eye and using braided line for the rip cord.... it doesn't stretch.
  16. Looking for information on who or where I can get my boat surveyed in the Oswego / Mexico, NY area and how much I should expect to pay for that service. Any info appreciated - TIA
