  1. If you're worried about the 20 lbs momo, bump it up to 30, and run your lower pound fc. I have 100' fc leaders on my board rods. Even if you want to go longer on your leaders, it's still going to be more cost effective than running all fc.
  2. I would use 20lbs Big Game momo for your backer with 12-15lbs fluor for your leaders fishing the finger lakes. Learn how to tie a double uni knot. Very easy way to replace your leader when it gets to short, or you break off. You can do it right on the boat. Simple and easy.
  3. That's what I'm hoping. I got the resource, figured what the heck. Is the green ok? I'm color blind, so it just looks brown to me
  4. Hello everybody, I live in the Albany area and in the spring we have a striped bass run up the Hudson River. And along with the stripers, blueback herring come up and spawn as well. Has anyone used these herring for cut bait? If so, were they just as good as the ones you get in the bait shops, or not? I just finished brining some up. Just wondering if I'm wasting my time. I brined them in a solution of pickling salt, borax, and distilled water, and through in some green food coloring. Here's how they came out.
  5. Great info, really appreciate it. Something happened with your attachment, says it can't be found.
  6. It sounds like the Simrad is the way to go
  7. Good to know that it handles well at lower speeds. But how does it handle in 4-5 footers?
  8. Never had autopilot before, going to put one on the new to me boat (25' with an outboard, with hydraulic steering). Which brand should I go with? Or stay away from? What should I look out for? Thanks

    Sold / Closed 1982 Trophy

    Selling my 1982 Trophy with trailer. It's a great starter boat for Lake Ontario. Selling because my kids have out grown it, and I purchased a bigger one. Included is a bimini top with rocket launcher, ez steer for a Mercury kicker, along with the kicker motor bracket. Also has trim tabs, and new prop. We have used the boat for the past 3 years, trolls great. For the main engine, its a Volvo Penta 125, with a 270 outdrive, has 569 hours. Sips gas, I've trolled for 3 days straight, all day long and never dropped below a quarter tank. I also have a couple of Cannon manual downriggers I can give you to get you started. First picture shows how I had it set up. Also, the trailer has new tires and rims, and led lights. Asking $3,000, or best offer, please PM, or call 518-727-4435, I'm located in the Albany area. Thanks, Jason
