  1. I know Dave and Joe from Screamer pretty good too and to make a slight adjustment to Jimmy's post they don't practice but one day before the pro-am. This is one of thier biggest arguments. Capt's are out there on the water a lot more than they are. Dave and Joe are weekend warriors, and thats it! It is very hard to compete against people who could have been out there for a week straight patterning the fish. Some capt's do this to offset some of the cost of the tourney. I also agree with the post that when your winning people start dogging you! And im not reffering to anyone on this forum. But they hear it at every event! "Why arent you going pro?" Or people talk about it behind thier backs. Its like this in every type of sporting event! IMHO.......if i was winning 5k 2-3 times a year.........I dont think i would change a thing! Yvan - keep your Canadian thoughts to yourself! LMAO!!!!! Cant wait till May dude! By the way.....what the hell did you buy? Didnt you just get that boat rigged the way you wanted it with the hardtop? By the way did Scotty start to produce those rod holders you had on it or would I still have to cut out some of it?
  2. i cant vote b/c it all depends on my mood and whats been hot. This year by fly bite didnt take off till mid summer. We used a lot of spoons..........especially up west this spring. So what I would do is spoon the riggers and put paddle son the wires. Towards late summer everything had a paddle on it.
  3. Im just joking! Its my old mans name and everyone knows us by that.
  4. Nope, that was a weekend or two before last weekend. It took 2 6lb'ers and a 4lber for 16+lb's to win! I have never fished the dash, but it sounds like fun.
  5. Damn they put that gold NBK into production already? Billy and I were just experimenting with them over the last month of the season. Hands down they will outproduce a silver NBK! I had the copper blanks and Billy had the gold. Both worked well!
  6. First off Im the only person who is allowed to use Yankee in thier name! So lets get that straight! I havent played with the new 10HS, but I think Billy V has them and he loves them. I switched to Scotties, and to be honest with you I dont think I could ever go back to a cannon. But the white ones do look cool! There isnt a rigger out there that can let me rig as fast as I can with a scotty.
  7. Well Black lake was good and bad to us! We got down there on Thursday night and heard the fishing was OK at best. GREAT! I have been getting my butt kicked on Conesus this year and now I have to struggle on my little vacation with the guys. The water in the main lake was so green when I threw a rooster with the old yammie it was green! YUCK! Anyway when you got towards each end the water cleared up nicely. 10/5 – So, we blast off and due to the fact we got breakfast the topwater bite was all but on my mind. I grabbed the old go to jip n pig and a purple tube to pitch. I also grabbed a zappu, a shaky head, a senko, a drop-shot, and whatever else I though might get me bit. Well from 7am to 11:30 we were left with one short fish off the drop shot on a green weenie roboworm. Back on the water around 1am due to the fact we mad some samiches and had to find some DFI oil for the old yammie. Not an easy task in the middle of no-where. LOL Hit the water and head up the north east arm and find some great weeds. I ended up poppin a keeper on a jig and 6 other 13-15â€Â
  8. Arent those Abu Garcia? Are they the black ones if so?
  9. I ran the Great Lakes on my wires for over 10yrs. Now I switched to the Sealines and they are working out just fine. You cant go wrong with a Daiwa levelwind.
  10. When I purchased my Bass Boat out of state thier banks actually killed the local banks interest rate. Prior I had a internet boat loan company that was going to finance it, but they required more paperwork than a bank. In the end a bank in Tennessee beat that rate. I have a feeling that this might be a private owner which will kill this idea, but I figured I would throw it out there anyway.
  11. OK I just was informed that these are the dates: may 31 & June 1 for Niagara June 7 & 8 for Orleans July 12 & 13 for Oswego July 19 & 20 for Wayne

  15. I have no idea i havent ben out in weeks. I would start around 3 and work out to 5. Im not guarantee'n anything, but if you find them you can load the boat. At the oak just a few days ago they were smacking them out at the 29-30N line. I would start at the 27 and work out.
  16. What r u lookin to get for it?
  17. Take the boat! Formthe sounds of it if you head offshore the 2yr olds and steel are still active. If the weather is bad then you can troll the river for the matures.
  18. Muskybob - There were unified rules in all the pro-ams this year. Fishtails - wasnt the rule to allow 2 people + the observer to have a license supposed to increase participation? If people wanna fish they will fish. There are many places to find an observer on the internet. The easiest way to convince them is to pay them. WHo wouldnt want to sit on a boat for a weekend and get paid for doing nothing? AS for the t ourney committee this year I think they did a great job and for the most part everythign ran well. Im getting sick of listening to the rules each time though. If you cant read them on your own then its your fault. Yeah, i dont mind if u have a question on one but we dont need to hear them every tourney. Those meeting last too long!
  19. It was off this weekend per my buddy, but the east end is a great area. The south east section of the lake is where two top 5 bags were caught in the eleite series 2 yrs ago. work the weed edges with search baits (spinnerbaits and crankbaits) and drag or pop tubes there too. The point can be very good too! Work some topwater in the morning over the weededge for some excitment. If you have a topo map there is a nice drop on the south side east of the point. You can drag a tube or toss a drop shot out there and there should be fish on it.
  20. Just a chrome j-plug.....thats it! A bloody nose one just has some red in the front.
  21. jax we need to do this over at the big river! this weekend? and get rid of them dang inlines!
  22. One fall derby about a long time ago we docked our old penn yan at the river. Me my dad and bro fished every day of that derby. Someone stole all our rods and tackle one night. I think i was 16 b/c i remember wanting to go down and sleep onthe boat. boy would they have gotten a surprise! It sucks! Good thing was at the time I was good friends with Pat from NK and he took care of us!
  23. No spotter? Idk if I like that...... If everyone else needs one why do the ams get off?
