  1. There is also a launch on the creek between state park launch and Hanover. It's called Hidden Harbour. It's very nice if the other 2 run out of parking spaces. I usually use the state park launch at the end because I get a senior discount. Lot of my friends prefer Hanover because they have a fish cleaning station, but I clean my fish at home.
  2. Attached are pictures of a new mast mount I just finished but haven't tested yet. Made it from two pieces of 3/4 thick Starboard and some 7/8 vibration mounts I bought from McMaster Carr. Mast was originally mounted to my bow pulpit which is also made of starboard, so it's the bow rail that is untested. Change in height from pulpit to rail raised the mast 20.25 inches, which should help me to get big boards farther from boat without dragging tow line in the lake. Added benefit is I gain back access to my anchor rode roller on the pulpit which used to be blocked by the old mast position.
  3. Ramp is fine. The sand bar is at the lake opening. See attachment. This picture was taken 4/14/2020 after a gas trip to the res. Fix the freakin wall and you don't have to dredge every year assuming its done correctly.
  4. I'm curious about the trolling motor on the bow. Are you using that for steering control going into the wind ? Does it control the boat well ? I have a crestliner eagle and I push it with a kicker, but it can be hard to steer the boat into the wind unless wind is under 10 and you pay complete attention. I've heard of people steering the bow with an electric troller mounted like that but I've never actually seen it done and Crestlners have a pretty tall bow.
  5. What does the mayor of Hanover have to do with the Sturgeon Point break wall ? If Hanover got money, they will be spending it in Hanover not Evans.
  6. What happened to all the state money that I read about on this web site that was purported to be available to fix the crappy break wall. What century is that work scheduled to start ? Or, was that all lip service as usual ?
  7. Went to Sturgeon Point today to check on harbor opening. pictures attached. ACE
  8. I'll think about it. There are quite a few on e-bay already but the prices are stupid expensive.
  9. Luhr-Jensen used to make them and maybe still do. The ones I won, that are still in the package, are labeled POWER DIVE MINNOW. They Have really big bills and are deep divers. I mostly use shallow divers these days and control depth with lead core, or dipseys or down riggers. Deep divers won't work on jets because they pull to hard and flip the jet over. ACE
  10. I use the exact same setup on Ontario and Erie. No need for separate set ups. All I change is pound test of leaders.
  11. I have a few that I won years ago in Southtowns walleye tournament and never took out of the packages. Some 1/2 oz and some 3/4 once. Do they work on walleye ? I never really tried them as I was mostly a worm harness troller. Should I try them?
  12. Attached are pictures of rod storage racks I made to store my trolling rods over the winter in my den. Made from 1X4 rough saw pine that was left over from putting a steel roof on my barn. Just screwed them to my ceiling, 4 screws per board. Make them as long as you need based on the number of rods you have or your inability to stop buying new rods.
  13. All you have to do is call launch ramp 716 947-4452 and they will tell you and they will also tell you how big the waves are. Simple and no guessing. Launch ramp people are very friendly and professional. I was there Sept 21 and sand bar is growing but I launched and returned no problem in a 22 ft I/O. However, I doubt you could fit a returning and a leaving boat thru the gap at the same time.
  14. Fished Sturgeon Saturday Sept 21 2019. Go straight out until you hit Canadian Line and troll the line in 69 to 70 FOW. Tons of marks everywhere. Got 15 walleye, 2 perch and one smallmouth. 2 dipseys on 2.5 165 ft back. 2 downriggers 55 down. Renoskis or harnesses, didn't seem to matter. We started late and fished till 4:30 pm. Lots of boats out there, and fish really turned on just after most of them left to go home about 1:30 Marked fish non-stop once you hit 62 FOW all day long.
