  1. I make fish tacos with them and have turned many people on to them who normally don't like fish. Like others have said, taking care of the fish from the net to the pan is the key to better quality. When I land a fish I cut through the tendon (holds lower jaw) between the gills and put them head down in a bucket of water to bleed out for about 5 minutes (get rod back down and stuff put away). Then put it on ice. Once filet cut into bite size chunks. Use egg or beer (I normally have more beer then eggs on the boat lol) as a wash. Coat in panko crumbs (season with whatever, such as garlic, old bay, slap your momma seasoning. Fry to golden brown. Take a soft taco shell, fish chunks, shredded cabbage (better crunch and won't get soggy), salsa, and tarter sauce. Trust me you and your family will love it. In fact my 85yr old father who never try's anything different loves them. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. I launched out of the fort on Saturday without too much of an issue. Only about 8-12 inches above water but do able. Wilson state park ramps were closed and olcott are floating so no issue there Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. Lakers are there all the time and really thick now. Kings will start coming through as the water warms up and the smelt start running. Most years they start showing up at the end of April. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Muskie bob pinned planer board and mast design in the tackle and techniques page. It's pinned 3rd article down. They work great Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. With the number of people out of money from orders not being received and if he still taking online orders/money, I'm surprised you haven't contacted the police. The town he lives in doesn't have a police department, you would need to contact chemung county sheriffs or nys troopers. I am sure if he has taken in all the money without providing the products, he probably hasn't paid the sales taxes either. We all know uncle Andy won't stand for that. Recently in this area they have hauled a few people to jail for not providing services and not paying sales taxes. Just a thought and hope you all get your products or money back.

  6. I'm sure by May they'll have those docks in. In October it was so shallow I couldn't put the drive down to start. I pushed off the wall and pole pushed to deeper water to start. The south ramp wasn't much better when loading back on the trailer. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. Thank you, I would greatly appreciate an update. Thanks again Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Anyone know if the launches at fort niagara either got dredged out or water high enough to launch a decent size boat (24ft)? I know last October launching a kayak out there would have been tough let alone a bigger boat. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. Thanks for the info. I am a LO guy however I have fished Seneca and Cayuga most of my life growing up. I am only 45 minutes from keuka but never fished it for some reason. I have always wanted to try jigging out there but haven't had the chance too yet as my boat is docked up at oak orchard. This trip is mainly to make sure his boat is running good (he had issues his first trip out). So we will mainly burn some fuel and then wet a line to slime the deck. I appreciate the tips and will give a go. I'll let you know how we make out. If you ever need info on conditions out of oak orchard just let me know and I'll return the favor lol.
  10. Thank you JK1, That's where we will head. What depth should start at? 60-70?
  11. Heading up to Keuka on Monday to ensure my nephew's boat is all set for the season. We will probably wet a line. I have never fished there and will probably launch out of hammonsport. If someone could point is in a good starting spot, that would be much appreciated. Thanks, Tim
  12. You can book online or call reserve America. I'll be there from thur-Sunday in Yurt 2. Stop by and have a beverage.
  13. I just found my dad's #44 die and former. Have to make a new hole punch jig but that's the easy one. I also found about 1000 copper, brass, and stainless blanks. I don't know where to get anything plated so I'll just play with and airbrush for now. I think it'll be fun to catch fish on your own stuff. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. I am not sure how well field and streams business model will work regarding staying around for long. From my understanding their belief is if you build it they will come. These stores are considered as destination stores and their will be very little stuff going on sale. That way the dicks store can maintain lodge sales by having sales. More money than brains philosophy there Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. I was just letting people know they were opening earlier than what was being announced. I know here in the southern tier 22 ammo is rare. As far as supporting mom and pop over the evil big stores, I myself get 90% of my stuff from one. However these box stores do provide jobs. Albiet minimum wage but a job none the less. While I am working at one of these evil big box stores, I am always telling customers to go to Hills, Valleys, and Streams, Mikes Guns and Ammo, or Barretts Archery for the stuff the store doesn't cover.
