Northeastbass.Com Classified Ads / 5 trolling motors
« on: June 08, 2020, 11:15:50 AM »
I've got 5 trolling motors , all need parts, two -Minn Kota Maxxum with lift assist 80 universal sonar 52" shaft both need control boards and new heads,  armitures and brushes are good. One -Motor Guide 101 needs steering cables, One -Minn Kota 70 all terrain 45" shaft  needs top half of head and in working order as far as I know. one- transom mount Minn Kota 55 don't know what is needs. Mother boards for the 80"s cost about 125.00, new heads are about 30.00 each. Don't have the time or energy to fix them up and sell them. The mechanics for fixing these aren't hard , great project for someone wanting to fix them up and sell them or needs a spare  to fix up. The Minn Kota 80's could sell for 500.00-600.00 each in good working condition when fixed.
300.00 for the lot of them. PM me if interested

The Hawg Forum / Proposed 10% Tax on all fishing clubs
« on: March 05, 2020, 08:24:09 PM »
Just so you know the lovely pee ant Governor Gina is trying to pass a yearly 10% tax on all gun, hunting, and yes,  FISHING CLUBS and  it's memberships. Her admin even stated  to the legislature last night at the state house "it is to reduce gun ownership here in RI". You need to contact your representatives and tell them your feelings on this matter, also the RI  Federation Sportsman Organization and RI 2nd Amendment Coalition is fighting over 20 anti gun and hunting bills introduced this year  and now she's attacking your God giving right to fish too. Fishing is next on her private agenda. You can also donate money to both groups to help fight these insane money grabbing bills. We show up strong at these hearings sometimes almost 2000 strong but we need more help. Last night we asked why they are only going after these clubs and not all clubs like golf, gym, surfing, boating and all the kind of clubs out there and their answer is that Gina feels the tax will help to reduce gun ownership here in RI . Why fishermen? apparently she sees fishermen as gun owners too.


 Please think about donating to these organisations  they are fighting for sportsmen and firearm owners every single day. Also think about showing up at the state house when these are in discussion more people there the better. you can go to their websites and find out when there is a rally up at the state house

Northeast US Lake Conditions / Re: Indian lake Water Levels
« on: July 12, 2017, 03:23:18 PM »
that water line  you speak of is the high water mark before they put in the fish ladder years ago.  They screwed up the elevations when they put the new fish ladder in and it was even lower before they fixed it. Now even at high water the lake is always 6" shallower. It took me 2 years of fighting with the EPA to have then adjust the height  and they still couldn't get it right.

The Hawg Forum / Re: The Spawn is Over
« on: June 03, 2017, 10:14:39 PM »
Was at Pachaug  Wednesday afternoon  31 may, fish still on beds water temps 64-68, Amos today in the afternoon well over a dozen beds had males guarding beds and about 8 more beds with both the male and female present, temps 65-67. Indian also has many active bedding fish as of today. Caught bedding fish last Sunday 28 May at Roger Williams park  also the spawn has been going on since the first heat wave. it has been slow and drawn out this year. due to the slow to rise water temperatures. I have yet to see many sunfish bedding areas yet so that also tells me the bass spawn is not yet over too. The fish this year have been very skiddish  and leave the beds and don't stick around as a boat approaches and  for most inexperienced anglers they think the beds are old and or finished. just not so. Last Saturday 27 May all our  fish in the tournament were bed fish .

Boating Forum / Re: Transom transducer mounting
« on: March 20, 2017, 08:57:18 PM »
A lot of boat bottoms  are different with chines and such and this creates different water flow turbulence's or hull cavitation  for a transom  mount transducer. Start it flush with the bottom  of the hull but you may have to move it as much as 3/8" up or down to get a clear reading on your sounder. Use the side for idle speeds and the down faster speeds.

Fishing Photos Forum / Re: Sick fish
« on: August 29, 2016, 06:58:46 PM »
Last year I read an article on why bass have sunken stomachs and actually verified it for myself between last year and this year. Of the four bass I cut open and dissected their stomachs, all had rubber baits inside them.  2 fish had 3 or more rubber baits in their stomachs and 2 just had one senko that was swollen to more than double in size within it's stomach. All fish were between a pound and a pound and a half.

a beaver smacks the water with it's tail to send out an alert to other beavers in the area that something is not right and or there is a predator  around.
