  1. When me and my brother were younger my dad took us across the lake to Cohberg for some Canadian summer fishing with another group of guys. Man do they have it good over there in the summer! So were fishing and a fish hits. Something happened to the reel and we had to cut the line and tie it to another rod and reel. Well after we finished tieing it up to the other rod and reel the guys noticed that they never took the line out of the other rod. So here we are on video camera fighting a Salmon with 2 rods.
  2. I was using 15 on my spoon rods and 25 on my paddle rods. You cant get it localaly, but you can order off thier website. Go to my website to link up to thiers.
  3. Ray - it still is 5/person. We had 3 people out there with us. I dotn have a camera, but we are going to try one this weekend on Honeoye. My buddies father has one.
  4. I would check out Hammerhead cowbells. These have brought many a fish to the scales in the LOC.
  5. Well, first off thanks for the responses! I think I am going to try 3 of them on my riggers. Currently I run a line called McCoy Mean Green. Last year during peak flea times I would bring up my wires and have a foot or so on them and then the rigger rod with McCoy would come up and there would be an inch here and maybe an inch there. Jax, on the board, can vouch for that. So, with that in mind I guess Im gonna give them a shot.
  6. In my experience usually ones hotter than the other. I dont pay too much attention to the 100 rule. I wont run a spinny or chip any closer than 20', usually. As for spoons I dont run them much farther than 15' behind the ball. If they are hitting spinnies and chips off the wires then go down on the riggers with them. I had numerous times last year where all I had in the water was paddles.
  7. First one on the ice at 5:30am and last one off at 6pm. 15 tip up spread all day long. Managed to go 4 for 6. 2 quick bites inthe morning and 2 quick bites in the last few minutes of light. Made for a long day. Good thing we brought the grill and cooked up some sausage and peppers.
  8. Nope, my passport application. I figured I better get it soon if they are going to make it manditory later.
  9. Anyone have any experience with the interline rods for downriggin? I have a couple flippin sticks I use bass fishing, but never used them downriggin. Pro/Cons?
  10. NICE! Im going to be at the South end Saturday morning. If you are there and see a fat guy in a bright orange coat come over.
  11. Dang Mikejones! I have to find me a suger mama like that! I always find the pretty/dumb ones! OK, that might have been mean. Back to school I am going to pursure my MBA, but I was thinking about gettnig a teachers certificate so I can fish ALL SUMMER LONG! If I could only go back in time.
  12. Hey Mikejones! How about a grant for grad school?
  13. I am an Inventory Control Supervisor for a Science Education Division. The three companies I wok for are Wards Natural Science, Sargent Welch, and Science Kit. We have some cool things here! We make our own Preserved Materials, we have a slides lab, a Chemistry lab, Geology Dept., Osteology Dept., and so on. Anything to do with Science education in schools we have a hand in.
  14. We fished the west side about half way down and the ice varied from 2-5"s. I was walking with my auger when I felt the ice shift under me. It was only 2"s there. I was drilling a hole and watched a crack run between my feet. The thinner ice was out past the drop off. Im thinking this weekend should be fine. I am planning on Doing a tourney at Silver, Avon Anglers, on Saturday and then going to Honeoye on Sunday.
  15. WOW.....didnt realize the amount of money I had tied up inrods and reels. As far as I can remember off the top of my head I have: 22 trolling outfits 23 bass outfits 1 ultralite 1 flyrod 1 noodle rod 4 ice set-ups Of course I didnt buy all the trolling setups, but I use them . If I were to put my dad and brothers other rods into that count it might touch 70 :shock: setups.
  16. Reel is in good working shape with some surface scuffs. Hasnt been used in a few years and figured I would sell it and put the money towards something else I dont need. $25+$5 Shipping.

  18. I wanted to try this last year, but never got around to it.
  19. Fished here from 6-11. Two quick flags in the morning, and we iced 1 24" Pike. Then nothing till we picked up. Not much excitment here either. I think the weather turned a lot of fish off this weekend.
  20. Fished from 11-3. 1 flag, which was probably a perch. A few small perch on the tip downs. That place sure is not what it used to be for some reason. Lets hope it picks up!
  21. Thanks! I am planning on being there Sunday morning.
  22. I would say mine had its highs and lows. The low part was the 10 pointer I screwed up becasue I used the wrong pin on my bow. It happened so fast and at 25 yards it should be a piece of cake, but I put the 40 yard pin on him . I also hit and never found a smaller buck with teh shotgun, but I would put the blame on myself for not practicing with my gun more. It was about 110yd shot, so I put the crosshairs on its back and squeezed. Hit him high but never hit any vitals. Couldnt find him. The high part to my season was the 5 point I got with the bow. I wasnt going to shoot him, and actually passed on the first opportunity he gave me. But I started to think that I didnt have a 5 point at home. I had a 4, 6, and a 7. So when he gave me the second opportunity I took him. I also took 2 doe with the muzzleloader this season. First dear I have killed with it.
  23. You might have a problem with floating docks in that area of the river. With a North wind that first section of the river gets rockin and rollin. I would think they would need to cut a section into the parking lot ,similar to how it is on the East side of the river by the swinging bridge. They really need to do something, becasue our port compared to every other major port on the lake sux! Those floating docks down the river are usless becasue whats down there for a boater? All the action is up near the beach.
