  1. IMG_0850.jpg
    Was on Stoney Lake last week and found a new to me rock! Not a lot of damage but bad enough that I require some rivets to be replaced Anyone have any suggestions for a reputable repair service. I am in London but can drive a little ways for the right repairs Any help much appreciated Thanks Mike
  2. Had this problem a few years ago. Decided it was time to upgrade to Ipilot. WOW!!! SO GLAD I DID!!! It is truly REVOLUTIONARY! Feels like you have been set free! Can control the Minnkota from anywhere within range. Even the dock! Grandkids LOVE Poppa's "Magic boat!! I can have the little ones in the boat and I can "tell" the boat to turn left/go straight /stop etc. Very entertaining at least for me! Best option though is the ANCHOR button! Keeps u on spot as long as you have enough power to overcome wind or current. Mike
  3. THANKS, that is the kind of answer I am looking for. Mike
  4. Got a new FF Lowrance Elite 7HDI. Gonna mount it on the dash to the right of the steering console. Issue is I will be taking it off & on. Anyone have an Elite 7 that they used some kind of Quick release mount? Been looking at the RAM ones and they have an adapter that snaps right in on the Elite 5 but the Elite 7 uses a gimbal type bracket mount! Thanks, Mike
  5. Anyone using a propeller lock that works? Had a friend go to the lake for some fishing and came out in the morning and his new prop was GONE! Mike
  6. THANK YOU! For all the responses. Looks like I will have to make up my mind what to fish for. NOT my idea to go there, just happens that is where the couple chose and we ARE going! Anyone got opinions on a travel rod? Don't think my Musky gear will fit in my suitcase!!LOL Mike
  7. Going to Playa Del Carmen area in May for nephew's wedding. Any good fishing trips/advice for the area? I am not one to lay about the beach, would rather fish and have never been to the area. Would it be worth my time to pack a travel rod and even fish from shore? Mike
  8. Billy Bob, if the offer is still available, I would like to take you up on your generous offer. Will be flying out of Buffalo on March 23rd for a week. Mike
  9. Been fishing that lake for more than 20 years. They call it Stoney for good reason!! There are 2 public ramps that I know of, 1 at Viamede(GOOD ONE!) and 1 at McCracken's Landing Don't know how it is these days Want to know some stuff about Stoney let me know by PM. I will be heading up there Sat for a week. ft
  10. I was fishing in the middle of Stoney Lake near Burleigh Falls. A bunch of buddies do this annual fishing trip and we were just meeting up to discuss the next area to target and a cell phone went off!! Being the smarta$$ that I am I said that line from the Labatt 50 commercial that was playing on TV that year....."AWWW, who brought a cell phone!?!?!?!" It was actually me who had the cell phone!! Imagine that , 8 guys and 1(one) cell phone. A lot has changed in 10 years. We went back to the cottages after hearing the awful news and could not believe our eyes what we were seeing on TV! I will likely be not far from the same location as the anniversary rolls over!
  11. I looked at and checked out ALL the reels I could lay my hands on and polled every muskie guy I could ......I went with the REVO INSHORE and No regrets at all. If I had to use ONE REEL for every thing the Revo Inshore would be it. FT
  12. Rob, there is a place in east London that makes those combined boat& trailer in one. They often have trailer tires on sale on KIJIJI Last summer they were advertising ST175/80 R13 Load range C Max load of 1360 lbs @50 PSI mounted on 5 bolt galvanized rims I have the name/contact info at work but do you think I can remember it now?!?!DANG!!EDIT! Admiral Drive Systems contact name was Bryan Stennett. I looked into them but they would not fit under my boat without modifying the fenders On my last boat trailer I put radials on it and WHAT a DIFFERENCE! Rode nice and cool and smoother ride. Mike
  13. Check out the add in classifieds for anti back lash reel! No one will ever know you are using it unless you tell them!LOL Mike
