    Seaguar 20 kanzen braid on my boards...thinnest braid on the market. (Less than 4 lb diameter doesn't gain you a thing in dive curve) Seaguar senshi 15 lb mono on the riggers. Seaguar premier 12 for leader on the riggers, seaguar premier 15 for leader on the boards. Braid is very unforgiving for landing walleye, especially with big boards. Stay away from "slick" braids for trolling it just isn't as durable.

    If you were in a lake with fleas would you still use the braid?

    I don't do much, but every Fall I fish BOQ for a few weekends. A few of my buddies up there love braid. It gets your plugs deeper for sure. I, however, run 10lb McCoy Mean Green/10lb McCoy Fluoro 100. I only pull deep divers with anywhere from .5-5oz of weight behind Offshore OR12 In-line boards. Never had an issue or a break off.

    I am very tempted to use braid, not really so much to get lures deeper, but to drive that hook home. I fish May/Early June/Late July/August primarily and late July/Early August the fleas would really do a number on braid I think. I can trust 10lb, but I think over the course of a season maybe a bit of wear and tear on ten lb from boards would create issues. Im really liking the above suggestions for heavier lb test lines that have the equivalent of lower lb test dia. Thank you for the input. I'll compare McCoy diameters to big game diameters. 

  3. California and New York have the largest numbers of people fleeing to other states because of their policies. Stripping the electoral college process and giving these states more influence over the country's policies as a whole doesn't make any sense. This is or at least was a Republic, ensuring the dumbed down masses couldn't crush the minority, which will be country folk in a generation or two. 

  4. Populations cycle. Are there more guys with beagles around my house when cottontail numbers are exploding-yes. Do they disappear when numbers crash-yes. Are they the underlying cause of these boom bust cycles-no. Maybe the DEC could recognize this and stay more on top of limits like they do with annual surveys for waterfowl. We are talking razor thin profit margins for folks who obey laws and sell perch here. Humans do/can have major effect on populations. Usually it from habitat loss, say removing mountain tops and placing them in ravines will cause the loss of salamander populations for example. Big commercial operations do too-like the market duck hunters in the Chesapeake way back when. But the hunters under a limit with recreational gear, even with all the guiding pressure in the Chesapeake is not the underlying cause of the population cycles for ducks in that area. Likewise, I'd say the recreational gear used to play the profit game as is in the Finger Lakes under the law is not a population driver. 

  5. The 50 limit, I'd have to imagine is the regulation that limits the sale of perch on the Finger Lakes. The profit margins for anyone traveling farther than someone in the town of Canandaigua would be non-existent over the course of time. No one likes game hogs. Not a lot of folks like to snitch either, but if you are a local who cares about the populations and see the local who can feasibly obtain a profit margin within the 50 limit parameters abusing the daily limit regulations-document it as best you can and pester the DEC for action. I really enjoyed the video. Local fishing shows are sparse, but I like them the best. Al Linder doing his thing on the Minnesota walleyes is ok, but watching a show that was filmed in my backyard is far more entertaining.

  6. There shouldnt be any reason for back straps to stink bad from a bad gut job if butchered that quickly. I have done my fair share of bad gut jobs and ruined the inner loins, but there is too much separation from gut cavity to back loins to contaminate them in that amount of time in my opinion. Benefit of the doubt to butcher, maybe the deer was injured from a car accident or something that caused an infection to back straps, but it sounds like a bad deal.

    That is an entirely different can of worms.


    There are already laws against these weapons on the feds books. The reason it is in the news is the blueprints themselves and whether the feds can restrict their existence. Are you advocating for super-duper duplicatitive laws against these guns or something?

    I hear what you’re saying. My point was , that there is a law against manufacturing firearms. So the patterns to manufacture 3D printed guns should automatically be illegal , and not available to the general public

    Not that I own or am interested in books like the Anarchist Cookbook, but I do believe in the protection of first amendment rights. The blueprints should not be illegal. Soon enough, once we go down this road of curtailing the first amendment, we'll see Mark Twain's books be banned because they used the n-word. You cant budge on the first amendment.
