  1. River herring aka alewives, have a completely different flavor then sea herring. Sea herring are full of fat and are far better eating.
  2. They are running thick here right now in the East Machias, Dennysville River, as well as a dozen others. Some areas are black with alewives.
  3. As a 33 year commercial fishing captain, on the ocean we like to look at the Marine forecasts from NOAA but more importantly we look at the current conditions at certain buoys (Buoy report) they update these conditions every 5 minutes. https://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=osgn6&fbclid=IwAR16z9Whk9eWTGk_PsOm7hnQroO3vRWp1hYTN-JGyA_ObKP-vC0rsEJMKsQ https://forecast.weather.gov/shmrn.php?mz=loz044
  4. I have two of these reels that the clickers are not working. Where can I buy parts to fix these?
  5. A friend of mine is selling his 31’ Baha Cruiser sport fisherman with twin 351s with less then 300 hours on both engines and transmissions since rebuilt. Comes with all of the takel and gear. 3 Scottie riggers, 12-14 brown trout rods, 10-12 salmon rods, 1,800-2,000 spoons, extra Convector reels, 3 dipsy rods and tons of miscellaneous stuff. Everything needed for turn key charter. Slip in Fairhaven is paid for for the year. New batteries in 2023, carbs just got rebuilt and installed with 0 hours. $35,000 call or text (207)266-3040 for more information. Boat is located in Fairhaven
  6. Thanks for sharing. I am planning one of three trips to Fairhaven myself.
  7. When I looked at this guys profile (after the scam) he had only been on here 2 days with no posts. That would have been nice to know prior to.
  8. The TR5 remote is different then the TR-1 I am guessing.
  9. Just bought a new one. Thanks
  10. I agree I did not do my diligence 100% my fault. I thought it would be important to post here where mistakes were made on my part.
  11. I posted a ISO in the classifieds for a TR-1 Remote. This guy sent me a PM. Long story short nether of these two will reply after I sent $90 through Zelle for the remote the "friend" had. Below is the PM he sent. Juan Vela 0 Started conversation: April 22 Hi, If you're still interested in getting the Garmin TR-1 remote. I have a friend who can help you out with that. It's affordable and still in perfect condition. You can reach out to he's email address. [email protected] Cheers!
  12. I have a three year old TR-1 Gold for sale. Its on a 2021 Yamaha T 9.9. This is one of the only auot pilot that will fit many different motors. Comes with new remote just purchased today 4/30/2024. This one works perfectly and still on the boat going fishing with it today. $900 firm for everything.
  13. I have had the TR-1 for 4 years now and other then the remote I have now had any issues. As many of you know Garmin no longer supports the TR-1 so the new option seems to be the Reactor 40. Do any of you have this unit and if so how do you like it? I know a guy that has had both and likes the Reactor but he has broke a piece that steers the motor 2-3 times in a year. I believe he said the part was made out of nylon and he ended up machining one out of brass. Any of you had this issue?
  14. I saw the wireless kits but I have not spoken to anyone that has one. Let me know if it works out. I did speak to a company that is making new wired remotes for $360 they said they will have them available soon.
  15. My original thought was, I have probably 18-20 old rods in my shed that I will never use. After seeing how easy it is to strip them down to a bare blank, I figured I would tinker with them and build my grandchildren some basic trout rods with my name on them. I am guessing I may be able to reuse some of the guides and maybe seats. Just to get through the learning curve. Thank you all for the great advice. I would get pleasure out of catching fish from rods I build, I am just trying to figure out how to match the components and get the rod I am looking for.
  16. Any idea what the final cost was?
  17. Have any of you bought the rod building kits and built custom rods from scratch? I keep looking on the Mud Hole website and I just cant get over the cost of a decent blank. Seems like I could buy a rod cheaper then building one.
  18. Scam demic.....what a bunch of BS, and to think 90% fell for it. No stab, not a sniffle and not 1 test.......
