  7. To all the fathers (tall and short) that always made time to take their kid fishing and get them out of the house, thank you! Happy Fathers Day!
  8. Casting: (1) Rod (2) Lure (3) Reel I think rod ranks highest for me personally as without the correct rod action, my lures alone won't be enough to trigger strikes in most cases; without the right rod power you don't have the backbone to throw bigger baits and without the right length you don't have ability to convert figure-8's (which for many represent 50% or more of their chances). The right rod solves all those problems. Trolling: (1) Lure (2) Reel (3) Rod Lures are the obvious choice here I think. I picked reel next as I need to know exactly how far out I am, have a good drag and be able to have some cranking power so I don't exhaust myself clearing weeds from cranks baits being trolled at 4+ mph every half hour.
  9. Want to post a question to my muskie buddies here on LOU that I was thinking about the other night. Question: If you had to rank the importance of ROD, REEL, LURE, in which order would you rank them from MOST important to LEAST important? I'm going to divide this into two categories as well: CASTING & TROLLING So for CASTING, what is the most important (Rod, Reel or Lures?) to least important? And for TROLLING, what is the most important (Rod, Reel or Lures?) to least important? I'll post my own opinion on Friday, but wanted to give you guys a chance to respond first. I'm interested to hear how different LOU members rank these.
  10. Great event. Had a lot of fun. - congrats to chapt 70 on taking the cup and to Nikki & Mike on real trophy fish!
  11. Teach my daughter how to use a baitcast reel... wish I learned earlier in my life.
  12. At the top of the site its under MAPS > https://www.lakeontariounited.com/fishing-hunting/page/lakeontario_map/ Just scroll down a bit...
  13. I know the obvious answer for me would be a jerkbait…. and you would be right just cause I enjoy throwing those the most. BUT… if my life depended on it, I would probably go with a tube or shallow lip joint crank as it is probably the most versatile for being able to target different areas of the water column. Plus the crank would give me a trolling and casting option.
  14. If you could only fish for Muskie with ONE lure for the rest of your life, which brand/model/color would you choose?
  15. Hahahah..... great story Mike! Now where can I get me some corn and doughballs...
  16. Had a great time yesterday at the show with family yesterday - drive home was ok for us, left a little before storm hit. My two daughters made out like bandits getting all sorts of kids stuff including free rods and reels just for showing up! I picked up a couple new show specials there to try this coming year (Koyte Ugly flashers, NK Spoons, etc.). It was great getting to see and talk with everyone. Looking forward to Spring now already!
