  1. Nope! Right now up at the bar you can get 20-30 laker bites a day! We used white chips with no-see-um flies, blue glow frogs, and green glow frogs to pick these off the bottom. If I wasnt in search mode for kings we could have smashed the lakers, but no one on the boat even wanted to reel one in! I finally made a game out of how fast you could get the laker to the net. 100' down I had one to the boat in 55 seconds and one in 57 seconds. No one could catch me! Tat was until we hooked into that 17lb'er and that one wouldnt come off the bottom!
  2. Its the original Hammer Time.........white spinny with a Hammer fly. Tom came out with his version of the Hammer Time with some of his painted spinnies. I just didnt want people to get confused, thats it.
  3. 5/4 - Ran to the Welland and managed a 12lb king on a slide diver with a black/gold bomber. Another King around 15 on a "Yankee Troller/Billy V" Hammer Time. Small coho off the top and a couple of lakers later on in the day. Very SLOW, and very COLD! 5/5 - Ran to am area on the Canadian side that looked like it was holding Kings, but after 3 minutes of trolling we figured out they were Lakers. Ended the say with 15 bites and only 2 were coho. ALL LAKERS and I tossed a 17lb'er back in the drink. OWuld of been in top 10 with it. 5/6 - Wasnt too happy to get out this morning and it showed with the poorest performance of the weekend. 2 bited/2 lakers
  4. I dont know what Gambler is talking about either! I mean, his future wife took those from him years ago!
  5. 4/27 - got on the water around 5 and fished till 7:30. Boated 4 SM and 1 Brown Trout on Bandit 300 series crankbaits. All the SM were 1-1.5lbs. 4/28 - on the wtaer at sun up and off we went to look for the big boys. Fished till 3:30pm and only accounted for 5 SM ranging from 1-2lbs and a nice 14" rainbow. All fish came on jerkbaits (lucky craft) and crankbaits (Bandit). Went to the tackle store after that and picked up some hair jigs which were supposed to be the ticket on the lake. 1/8oz black hair jigs on 4-6lb test. Watched a weigh in prior to going to the tackle shop and it too 22lbs with 5 fish to win (mixed bag) then there were some 18lb bags and it fell from there. 4/29 - Tournament day! Blasted off at 8am :x Lake rules! Within the first 30 minutes I had hooked and lost right at the boat a 4lb LM :evil: . He took that hair jig but since i wasnt used to the bite i didnt get a good hook im him. I lost another small LM prior to that. Throughout the day we boated 6 keepers ranging from 12-14". These fish fell victim to the x-rap's and lucky craft slender pointers. Went back to the area we lost the LM in and my buddy loses a 3lb SM and then a 2lb SM both on hair jigs. So we called it quits about a half an hour eary so we could beat the traffic at the launch and start the 6 hour drive home. Even though we didnt cash a check we learned so much about the lake and thats what really matters! Looking forward to next year. Talke to a buddy after wards and it took 27lbs to win with 8 fish. a couple of 22lb bags and then it fell from there with the average bag being 10-12lbs.
  6. Yeah, he called me during your guys trip. Should be a blast! You in the same marina?
  7. Steve, we finally get you up to the bar and this year the Salmon are running late! I feel bad bro! They will luite up soon though and you wont regret it.
  8. I am in the process of obtaining that license too. The test, from what I read, is on the regulations in the sport your guiding in.. You need CPR which you get with ur 6 pack, and a physical which u need for your 6 pack. Onieda is a navigatable water so I think the 6 pack will work. Not many places you need a guides license for. Mostly finger lakes and adirodack lakes, and maybe chautaqua. If you want to guide on Conesus or Honeoye you need to obtain another license from the state and have your boat inspected by the state. Total cost per year is $40. This is only for Conesus and Honeoye. If you have a 6 pack they will waive theis test.
  9. Controll yourself now! http://spoonpullers.proboards42.com/ind ... 1177552137
  10. There will b fish up there! Dont you guys worry about that. You might have to go to Canada though for the King action!
  11. On at 7 off by 11. Didnt get a hit! That lake is so tough. I saw 4 or 5 caught that whole time by other boats. Very frustrating. I would have stuck it out but the people I went with had short attention spands.
  12. Hey buddy! I would take ya up on the offer but I will be in CT this weekend fishing a bass tourney. All I can tell ya is find the dirty or green water. Most likely this will be off the mouths of creeks. Throw a variety of colors out until you find one that works. If you are fishing clear water stretch your lines further behind the boat. Other than that I think we all missed the good bite that was going on all last week. Hope for some rain and wind for a day or so!
  13. Ray, dependig on weather you might have to run 12 miles west to the bar or if your lucky just a few miles to the big red barn. It all depends on wind and water temp.
  14. Too bad Mark! The boat went straight to Mike at M&M Marine and I believe it willbe fixed today. You didnt miss much! With all the boat traffic out there the fish got spooky.
  15. Dropped in around 7 and fished till 9. Boat had some overheating problems so we couldnt troll down too much and had to keep throwing it in Neutral to rev the engine. Finally called it quits at 9. Plucked a nice 8lb bow off the boards on my noode rod and that was the ony action for the morning. That is until I came back with the bass boat and loaded up on some LM, most of them were small though.
  16. Whats up hommie? nice post! I will b out tomarow morning. Hope I do OK!
  17. 9am and i could walk across the ice it was so thick!
  18. I drove over to the river today and it was loaded with ice! A lot to melt in 2 weeks!
  19. Man, if I would have read this earlier I would have checked. I just got back from buzzing around the bay doin a little bass fishing.
