    There is a tackle shop there right up the same road the park is on (Fishy Business) . I'm sure the guy that owns it (Gerry) could fix up up with whatever you need as well as offer you specific advice. He is probably the best source of info on Keuka and has everything you need.

    He is located at 3737 Pepper Road Bluff Point NY (607) 368-2306 or (315) 719-3673  (closed Tuesdays)

    This is what I love about this forum...good folks

    I know we got screwed. LOL. I checked out nookchasins post and it's accurate. Bad news is I'll take an $80.00 beating on the sale. Good news is they do a really nice job and you will be happy with it,

    I have used it a TON...I have never charged the second battery. I also bought the regular Bubba flexible blade filet knife too. I Think its easy to slice off the skins and trim with it. Not complaining, I like the product. Just would have liked it even more at that lower price!

    I see what you mean. No offense taken. I appreciate the heads up. In fact I'm a little jealous as I got it from Cabelas a couple years ago and paid 169.00 + state tax and shipping. And that price was supposed to be "a deal" on a flyer that comes with their credit card bill every month. LOL. The knife is exactly as I described and I'll take $100.00 for it.

    I paid $170 for mine last year, FishUSA or Cabelas

    My comment wasn't intended to bash big boards as in really rough water situations they run better than most inlines and I started out with them and used them for years during the 70's through 90's, and you can easily run more than one line from them, but they can be a lot of work in heavy traffic so I simplified my game by using the inlines. I also use outriggers from time to time which a lot of folks don't care for but in heavy traffic folks usually stay away from you when they see them deployed. All of it has pluses and minuses so you have to try it and see what works for your own situation.

    No I got ya...feel the same. Different tactics for different situations... I also like using the Church stern planers down the chute 200'+ back from the boat. Picked up a lot of fish that way and they stay out of the way! Easy to deploy and retrieve too. Same issue with traffic though, gotta watch for yahoos cutting across the stern!

  5. My bow seat mounted mast is about 6.5 feet off the deck and the bow deck is 14" higher than the rear deck. With boards out I have to stand  in the walk thru and reach up to grab a line. Have never had a line within two or three feet of my head. I have and do run four Church inline boards as well but each method has situations that they are better suited for. Running in and out of pin buoys or in a good chop, pulling big boards is the way to go. Plus I have never had to clear lines with the big boards.  I would also not try running four inlines off one side of the boat, something easily done sliding lines down a big board setup. They each have advantages and disadvantages I suppose. They both catch fish!

    On my 16' Smoker, I mounted it to the bow seat post as well, due to the trolling motor. However, I would have preferred it on the bow. Now, I run inlines for the reasons mentioned as well as..I hated the boards taking up so much room.

    My boards pull so hard if I had a mast mount all the way forward I would have to stand on the Gunnels, and lean out to grab the line every time. Seems like it would be a **** setting lines and almost dangerous with any chop. To each his own...

    Keep in mind other factors may play a roll and interfere as well depending..... VHF Antenna, Bimini Top, etc. There will always be something! Just move stuff while fishing. NBD

    I would do the bow seat mount and just move poles if needed, if you are running boards you will probably have four poles in use anyway. I do not think I would go with the mount on the prow. That would make it difficult to handle lines and control the boat I think. The tow lines would be too far forward.

    Didn’t know about bay bridge. Screwy louies is exactly what I’m looking for. Thanks guys tight lines 

    The Anchor Resort and Marina has cabins as well, may have dock space as well, they are right on Little Sodus Bay... Lived in Fair Haven for 20 Years but its been a bit so you would have to verify.

    Thank you for the feedback! Now well over 1000 made! They are cleared three coats. If you would like to add more,I recommend krylon over Rustoleum. I have had the Rustoleum lift on me which led to totally stripping and starting over. Lol

    Sent from my LM-X210APM using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Thanks for the feedback! If they've been sprayed 3x I don't see where any more will make a difference! Fish on!
