I know that Kinzua Outdoors is a promoter of the sport of angling. Does the organization do anything like collect used equipment to donate to the less fortunate? If not, does anyone know of such an organization that does this? I have some old gear that I would rather have in the hands of some aspiring young angler, than sitting in my garage collecting cob webs.

Doesn't look like it as of now.

They called thursday afternoon to tell me the boat was ready at 3:30. When I called back to find out what time they close, he found out wehile checking the upgrades on the computer that it was programed for the wrong oil, and that all the updates weren't done.

It is p[robably done today, but thge other problem is that minkota has a nation wide back orded on their indestructable trolling motor shaft that I destructed.

He told me tyhey said it would be two weeks.

Now I have to decide wether to drive 4 1/2 hours back and forth to use the boat a couple times, then do it again in a couple weeks when the shaft arrives.

I will say one thing, so far I am very impressed with thew dealership and mechanics at Jammison Marine. They have really been trying to help.

I havn't talked to John Lorenzo to see if he needed someone to sign up with him yet, and I still havn't bought a flippin rod yet for the weed beds.

My partyner went there this past 4-5 of july and did well jigging the weeds for eye's.

Sorry you can't make it. We'll see you at Oneida then. The last time I was at Chataqua, it was for a bass tournament, and I caught more walleyes than bass while flippin' in that thick stuff. I'll probably try to stick a few eye's while I'm out there this weekend. It'll be a little early for a pre fish, but better than nothing for the championships.
