  1. Sea sick

    Hug a tree?
  2. Question about state limits?

    Pretty sure NYS law is a "possession" law not a catch law Tom B. (LongLine).

  4. for sale : usa 1980 Blue Fin

    Looks like a 21 ft'r to me. I have an 18 ft Royal line from '84. (same exact windshield) Came with a 75 E-rude with Max rating of 115. You won't find a sturdier aluminum hull than the Blue fins. Tom B. (LongLine)

  11. Downrigging

    Depends what your running and how deep your fishing. Clean spoons down deep then run close to weight. Clean spoons fished shallow then run them out a ways. Lone Flasher/flies run from 5 to 25 ft back. (again run deeper, run closer) If you're running a stacker then lower one about 10-15 ft longer than higher one. Tom B. (LongLine)
  12. The only thing the dams did was reduce the year over year variability in the lake level. Since the 50's, levels have fluctuated between 243 & 247 (except for this year). Prior to the 50's & back to the mid 1800's levels bounced between 241 & 248. (do a search on "lake level variability - Lake Ontario") Tom B. (LongLine)
  13. Pete - Hit like a king& ran, then went deep & I couldn't move him. I thought it was a big laker. Couple minutes later about 140-150 ft out, he cleared the surface by about 4 feet. After that he stayed just below the surface and i had to circle and chase him. He did not want to come near the boat. Definitely one that I'll remember for a long time. Tom B. (LongLine)
  14. SK8 - Thanx. KotW - On the west end, I'd agree with you however in the central basin, I've seen Big O change from flat to rolling white caps in 20 minutes. IMO, only a DF would fly solo out to where those charters were. Tom B. (LongLine)
  15. Atlantic. Seems like quite a few are getting caught this year.
