  1. I agree. How many guys can say they got a grand slam on the last day of February. A tip of the hat to Doc and crew.
  2. I use one of these ratchet style mounts. Makes it easy to raise and lower for trailering. I am still using the same mount that I installed 19 years ago and trailer my boat about 25 times a year.
  3. I know what you mean stix about being covid bored. You just have to improvise some days.
  4. kempie, If you really want to get the most enjoyment of fishing you should make your own lures. Here is a link to get you started making trolling flies. You don't have to make a big investment and you don't need anymore than the basics to catch some pretty nice fish on the flies you make. Once you catch your first fish on a fly you make you'll be HOOKED http://www.lakemichiganangler.com/tips/making_flys_directions.htm The best part of making your own flies is that you can make them quickly as the conditions change and the fly pattern change along with them. They only take about 10 minutes to make and even less time once you get the hang of it. You read a fishing report on Friday, you make the pattern Friday evening for Saturday's fishing trip.
  5. Not to booger up the topic but just want to throw this at ya. The best line to use is the one that you have confidence in. How shy do the think a fish is when it’s hitting a fly 20" +/- behind a 8" dodger or flasher. If the fish doesn’t hit it’s probably has more to do with the action, speed, color than the line between the dodger/flasher and fly. I’ve been making my own flies for more than twenty years and to be honest catch enough fish with my home-mades to satisfy most fishermen. So what line do I use? Ande 50# clear exclusively since the mid 90's. I buy it in 250 yd (1/4 lb) spools and never had a break-off. I have complete confidence in it. Disclaimer: I only fish the fingers so this may not apply to big waters. Also I’m bored and killing time till the end of March. Tight lines
  6. Looks like it may get a little skinnier https://www.canals.ny.gov/waterlevels/netdata/cayuga-levels.pdf
  7. I don't know what DEC's plans or schedules are. What cleaned up Cayuga was a successful treatment. At that time Cayuga was out of control and Seneca wasn't experiencing any major lamprey issues. The window to treat is the same for both lakes but that doesn't mean that both are scheduled.
  8. One successful treatment will wipe out five years of larvae. That is why Cayuga is cleaned up for now. They'll be back in full force unless the tribs are treated again before they get out of control.
  9. To bad NYS doesn't allow trapping and selling the eels. The Asians would jump all over that. The adult eels that do all the harm would have a bounty on their head. Also it would replace smelt fishing in the finger lakes
  10. I'm interested in 8" Opti-dodgers. Any color. PM me if you have any. Thank you.
  11. For those that want to see what the regulation book says about that click the link and scroll down to Methods of Taking Fish Angling https://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/31416.html
  12. PM L&M (mod) and see if he has any.
  13. 42" in Binghamton, 7S. Hunting with snow shoes was fun when I was younger but not anymore. The only thing I got using snow shoes was tired
