    Cannon rigger stopping

    check your wires, sounds like a loose connection. When this happened to me i found that the plug prong was broken.

    Spring striper surf fishing on the Cape

    Chugbug, I wish Lake Ontario was within three hours. I have to drive six hours to get there to fish and choose to go to the Niagara bar in May which is a nine hour drive.

    Spring striper surf fishing on the Cape

    May is a great time for stripers in the canal. They are usually running the canal pretty heavy by the second week in May. They will be following the herring as they show up to spawn in our local streams. Every year is a little different as it is with all migratory species. Also the smaller fish show up first. Most people will toss jigs, spoons, or some form of hard bait and chunk herring or other bait fish. Tides play a big role in this areas fishing. check with the local bait and tackle and they will let you know which tide has been working best. On the note of the fish following the herring, any tributary along the cape that has a herring run should hold a few fish off the mouth of the river or just inside. The problem is access to these locations. Good luck

    Finn spoons

    They are a great contributor to the Fair Haven Challenge for our Pen project. Please support manufactures that give back to us to support our sport.

    cape cod fishing

    The canal has been hot the last couple of weeks for strippers. Many large fish have been taken.
  7. 7 strand trolling wire Originally purchased my trolling wire from McMaster Carr ten years ago. Great product and lasted a long time but they do not sell it anymore that I could find last year. Needed to change it last year so I tried the torpedo wire. It is fraying all over the place so I do not trust it. Looking for a couple 1000' spools. Where is everyone purchasing there wire and are you happy with it? Thanks for the help. Richard

    Battery wiring

    I think you can. As long as you run independent wires to the positive and negative of one battery only you should have only 12 volts.

    I read an article from a scientist once that said that there is some possible reasoning to the superstition. They located an enzyme or something like that in the skin of the banana that fish did not like the scent of. I will look around to see if I can relocate the article on the web.

    Mc rocket

    I vary my length from three feet to six feet, on the longer side if using twinkies. I do like to add scent to my set ups.. I usually use an eight inch flasher.

    Thinking about going to Olcott for a few days

    Last week was a great trip. Fished Friday threw Sunday. Best water was between 350 and 375. Riggers down 75 to 95. Divers out 150 to 300. Higher early and deeper as the day went on. Best location was out in front of Wilson on the 52 line I think.

    East end versus West end

    Also, lets not forget the possible effects of a successful pen rearing project. Not all the fish are imprinted with the salmon river water. (most still are), but the disbursement of the fish over the hole lake is more even. These fish are hanging closer to there stocking location until mature and the need to spawn drives them to the Salmon River for the ones imprinted to that Tributary. Others run for their stocking tributaries. The numbers are still in Mexico bay in late August and September. The hatchery is sill getting their fish for the eggs. I only recall one year were they were asking for egg collection from other tributaries.. I could be wrong on that because I do not live there but one year they were asking for help on the internet and I have not seen that sense then.

    Boat checklist

    Boat registration, side cutters in case you have to cut a hook or rigger cable if it should get stuck on something. Hand held radio for back up during an electrical failure or god forbid you are in the water. And of course do not leave home without snacks.
