  1. Cables go. I've changed a cable on an 09 50hp as it was stiff. Check your cable connection at the shifter and throttle control that it's not loose. Or get a buddy to watch it while you shift in the driveway. New cable is a couple hundred bucks and done in an hour or so depending if you have access to the cable vs fishing for it through the gunnel
  2. Bad ramp for launching a boat, great for my jet skiis. I've seen some ppl come in hard to smack the concrete walkway. Its not deep either so you have to watch. If the winds are bad forget it. They'll probably charge everyone for parking weather on the water or on the beach.
  3. Ramp had some ice build up this afternoon. Two brave boats launched in this frigid cold weather. I'd bring some sand or a shovel just in case you're going to launch this weekend with the cold temps. Water had about 1ft vis but we had some good winds last night so we'll see how she looks for the weekend
  4. I'm assuming rainbows are being caught at the bar? I know spring is hot for the Lakers.
  5. Welcome to the region! Different times of the year different baits work. From roe to streamers, beads, rubber minnows etc... lots of places to shore fish on the river from the whirlpool down to queenston. You're close enough to fort erie which has some great fishing as well. Good luck!
  6. The front deck of the boat should come up easily. I've repaired a "cracker" (tracker) boat that had the same problem (welded hull mind you). Winter project I would say. I would also reinforce the structural of the floor if you're gonna do it. I have a guy that can weld it for you in Niagara if you want to do it. Cost you about $500. Pouring a foam bottom will also give more added strength to the hull. Dont junk it and dont pay a stupid amount of money for a dealer to send it out and get done.

    Not the same as it used to be, I tried it and was disappointed. I've been using Andy Line 8lb for most of my fishing from bass to bows and on my centre pins.
  8. Hope the river is clear for the weekend! l am hoping to get out myself, as of today the upper and Erie were mud.
  9. l probably wont get mine until spring. No point in getting batteries when the boat is going to be in storage for the winter. FISHKID - You're right, Megnacharge makes "TROJAN" batteries which are suppose to be top of the line. Energizer batteries should do the trick, make sure you store them properly and charge them once in a while during storage.
  10. l am in the same situation. Been looking on Kijiji for some. Found refurbished for $50-$60 with a 90 day warranty but they are refurbished. I dont know if anyone has had any experience with them. Found probably the best deal around, Magnacharge Brand group 27 Deep Cycle (27DC180) for $120.00 each MCA = 1000 RES CAPACITY = 175 AH = 105 WARRANTY = 36 Month with 18 Month Free Replacement DIMENSIONS: L = 12 ¾ X W = 6 ¾ X H = 9.0 Magnacharge Battery Corporation 6670 Columbus Road, Unit B Mississauga, Ontario L5T 2G1 Office: (905) 565-6616 or Toll Free (888) 271-8888
  11. Here is a good website to find alot of different lure building items. Reasonable prices and out of Ontario http://www.luremaking.com/catalogue/catalogue-index/catalogue-items/economy_casting_spoons.htm Here is another website that for rods and other tackle building items http://www.luremaking.com/catalogue/catalogue-index/catalogue-items/economy_casting_spoons.htm
  12. Is there still lots of ice in the river? Looked at the web cams and it looks like its still coming down heavy. Thanks,
  13. The original owner has to go to City Hall with i.d and a letter explaining why he cannot provide the ownership papers and under oath has to sign a paper declaring that he is the original owner of the trailer. Then with that paper he needs to go to the ministry of transportation and have the trailer registered as a home made trailer or if it has the VIN number that would help to register it in his name. Then the Ministry of Transportation will issue him a new ownership paper to that trailer(FEE $35 or so) to his name and then he can transfer the trailer ownership to you and you have to register it under your name and plate it. Long process.. Enjoy

    2stroke motor

    Oil and gas seperation. You might have flooded your spark plugs and gummed them with oil. Take them out and clean them, while your plugs are out of the motor turn the motor over a few time to get everything out of the cylinders. I would recommend running your mix with some gas stabilizer to keep your gas last longer.
  15. l am a bigger person myself, and l have this problem all the time. l would suggest that you purchase breathable waders and a pair of warmers to wear underneath. The breathable waders have ALOT more room to move around in and they dont make you feel like a sardine. You can always check Peter's tackle in St.kitts, nice selection. l own a pair of hodgeman's and they have been great. If you need more ideas where to purchase, drop me a line because at BPS you are going to pay arm and a leg..

    niagara bar

    l was wondering if anyone is fishing the niagara bar and if there is any action yet or is it to early. Have been fishing the river and have not seen much of a run yet, hoping we get some fresh fish soon. thanks in advance...
  17. float fishing is definitely the way to go.. you can't get a more natural presentation than a roe bag under a float....l have been float fishing for 4 years now and for the winter months l hardly use any other gear in my collection.....another good thing is that its you and the fish and no drag to control how much line the fish takes out so its a good battle and a little more excitement.... unless u can afford a ang. specs. and a few others with a drag system.. l have had experience with a few reels and the one that tops it is the ISLANDER..... for the price and the durability its the best bang for the buck... if you are interested l have a gold one for sale in the classifieds.......

    trolling motor

    l have mine set up so that u have the two batteries operating the 24 volts for the trolling motor, on my trolling motor l also have to swqitch from 12 or 24 volts. The 3rd battery is for the motor and for the rest of the gadgets that u may have... DO NOT CONNECT ANYTHING TO THE TROLLING BATTERIES AS YOU MAY OVERLOAD THE ELECTRONICS.....and that might be a very exspensive lesson...

    Burbot / Ling

    just wanted to share a picture of a ling that l have when l was in europe last summer, one of my family members does a lot of fishing over there and its not uncommon to catch these monsters there. The picture that l have here is a fish that is 37kg, l just dont know if the picture will work. these fish do get larger there and have been reported to be cought in the 100kg range and up, they do sit in the deeper waters and are a good battle on a fishing rod.... http://tinypic.com/view/?pic=jtau77 http://tinypic.com/view/?pic=jtb0vk

    those hooks are common in europe and are used all the time, they mostly use them for small pan fish, they tie the snelled knot to them and they seem to work really good......l have never seen them sold in stores here......
  22. l cant say anything bad about that place they are very nice people to deal with and are always willing to help. They carry most of the things that l usually need for the trailer or boat or even electrical.... there prices are fair and better than most places.....they know quiet a bit about boating and if they cant find something for you they offer ideas. my first choice is them to call if you ever need anything.....
  23. bucketmouthjohnny, are u talking about the log cabin going to st davids, with the trailer sales??????? l have a blazer that l had the hitch installed there and the price that they gave me was the cheapest on around.....they installed the hidden hitches....
