  1. Hey, any of you guys fishing off Irodequoit tomarrow morning. I might be headed there from Sodus in the blue bomber! I have a little tourney out of Sodus tomarrow and if the weather is permitting I am going to run to either Irondequoit or Braddocks. Should be fun! 34 mile run at 65MPH FUN!
  2. You can never look at it as wasting gas! You should learn something from every trip out whether u kill em or go blank.
  3. Mark, we would all appreciate you wearing your shirt in pictures from now on! I heard they have been somking them out front, but Im moving the boat to FH for a month. C-ya all in Sept for some combat trolling.
  4. Dont go under 50lb. A lot of guys are using floro but that gets expensive. You can get Trilene Big Game in clear from BPS and do a ton of flies. I have had the same spool for 2 years and I bet I have 5 more years of tying flies with the amount of line on that spool, and I rig 50 flies a year probably.
  5. Billy V and I used them, and so did Jax. He has been stricken by some bad business decisions due to not getting his partners visa so she could come work in the USA. Other than that you will learn a lot and he makes the class fun!
  6. I think you will see the full time tournament teams there, but it might affect the part timers which is respectable. The 4th is generally a family holiday. With that being said it doesnt matter the me, becasue Im gonna be there reguardless!
  7. There isnt any between the reels right now. I am ordering the vector quad rod holders which will let me separate them a little better, but with my current set-up there usnt much separation.
  8. I agree with what both of these two just said! I have realy moved towards this set up this year since the wires outproduce the downriggers. Im not sure what it is with them this year. The only bites im getting on them are stratched way back. Oh well, for the Orleans win I ran 4 wires and in Oswego I did the same. Both times with 3 riggers and a 600 copper. In oswego it was 2 copper/4 wires/ and 2 riggers. If you have the crew for it I would reccomend it! Only thing to change when fishing tight this fall would be a 1.5 setting and a 3.5 setting. Maybe a 3 on the wire and a 6 on the slide diver. The possabilities are endless!
  9. I dont know but im not going under 50lb!
  10. Brand new in the box never used. Great handheld GPS reciever with mapping tech. $150 (includes shipping)
  11. 3 for sale retialed at $90/rod. These would make great rods for the person who wants a high end rod. They would make for a nice trolling rod for the smaller salmon and Trout on the Finger Lakes, but could easily handle a LO King!

  12. 6 - White double crushed glow 6 - Green Oil slick glow/Oil slick green These are the adjustable dodgers/flashers. They retail for $11/flasher. I will let all 12 go for $100 (includes shipping), or 6 go for $54 (includes shipping).
  13. I would head out to the lake in front of mud bay. There are two islands (Fox and Grenadier) that have some nice SM living around. There is also a red bard outside of mud bay where a hole is. That holds a lot of SM too. AS for Walleye, Im sure the shoals right out the mouth of the river are holding them.
  14. I do 20-22" and I know Billy does 23". Find what works for you!
  15. Walleye....I was giving btfc1752 some friendly advice. I have no idea why he would want to target Laker soi nthe morning when the King action is slammin. I know of guys this week going out with 6 rod spreads and getting 12 bites in a few hours from Olcott to Oswego. Why go farming for lakers when you can get into some nice King action ALL DAY LONG?
  16. LOL!!!!! And I ran the otterboats int hat stuff all day long with copper off it!
  17. Oh come on guys! They were 2-4's at best!
  18. I think you have your priorities mixed up.....You should be fishing Kings in the morning, and then Kings in the afternoon, and then Kings in the evening. No need fofr trout b/c the Kings are on fire all over the lake this year.
  19. Im running the blacks aBove the probe and Im not using the tape they provide you. Top it off with a beat up cable and Im still getting readings down past 130! Got to love that unit!
  20. S&R down at Irodequoit was supposed to order some. I got him the contacts he needed and he seemed interested in the product. If not then you can buy direct from thier website. http://www.mccoyfishingline.com/ It is a west coat company so thier presence here isnt very good, yet. In the bass world I live in I have turned many people in to McCoy users localy. Last year I started using it on my Salmon rods to find out it didnt collect fleas. I was impressed!
  21. I run 25lb McCoy Mean Green and never have to worry about fleas on my lines. Jax can atest to that. Maybe an inch here or there but it never stops me from reelin in the fish.
  22. I wouldnt reccomend anything lighter than a M action but would prefer a MH. If your running it down the chute I like a shorter rod.
