  1. Here is my Fittante mount - took a little longer than LAX but came out great IMO.  I've included some pictures of the shipping crate it came in as well.

    My LAX mount is out at the cottage now and I don't have a picture of it with me. 

     

    A couple mounts done by LAX for Bob Walters of Water Wolf Charters that I also liked:

  2. Nice fish Nathaniel - congrats.   Here are some options for replicas I'd recommend for consideration:

    If you are looking for a good Canadian option check out:

    All of them do phenomenal work in my opinion.

  3. Nice day guys!  Congrats.  Looks like it was a deeper water trolling bite that day as I don't know of any casters that got any.  Sorry I wasn't able to attend as I was celebrating my 10-year anniversary.  It was a hard choice but if I wanted to make it another 10 years I had to pick wisely :lol:

     

    4 muskies is great day - congrats again.

    I do have one question for those of us who have been participating in the hard copy diaries. Should this be used instead of the hard copy?

     

    It is your preference in which submission option works best for you.  All we would ask is to not duplicate entries (i.e., if you do hard copy, don't do electronic of same record and vise versa).

  5. Hi LOU members,

     

    I had a chance over the last couple months to sit down and talk a lot with Steve LaPan (Section Head, Great Lakes Fisheries) and Dr. Farrell (SUNY ESF) with the goal of creating an electronic option for participating in the research on the St. Lawrence River muskellunge population at their Thousand Islands Biological Station (TIBS).  This research is funded by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and is guided by an international muskellunge management plan.  The voluntary Angler Diary Program is an important tool used by ESF scientists to help evaluate the status of the St. Lawrence River muskellunge population and sportfishery.  Many members here on LOU already participate in this via the hard copy diary mailed out each year.  This year we are pleased to announce they have accepted an electronic submission option in addition to the hard copy.  More info about the program and the Angler Diary Submission Form can be found here:

     

    https://nymusky.com/dec-tibs-muskellunge-angler-diary-program/

     

    I'd encourage anyone who fishes the river to participate even if you catch nothing!  All entries are submitted directly to the ESF scientists in support of their on-going efforts track trends in our sport fishery and aid the DEC in their management of the St. Lawrence River muskellunge fishery.

     

    Thanks for the consideration and good luck on the water this year!

    Chad
