  1. Thanks for report. Did you try running meat? We been thinking about one more trip.
  2. I seen the brown hanging .Seeing the belly facing towards me first I thought it was a laker. Then when I looked at the side it was a brown.. I should have taken a picture. Long and skinny... Here is a pix of the 4th place rainbow if it wasn't a bleeder it would have gone back..
  3. Hit the S end of Cayuga Friday afternoon for a couple hours. Lots of debris ,seaweed,trash, logs. and trees floating. Water is high and and yellowish green looking. I was surprised at the pleasure boaters going wide open.. Marked quite a bit of bait and fish at various depths. This one came 50 down on a Pirate watermelon spoon. He is still out there swimming around. Pulled the down rigger balls up from 100 down and they were warm....
  4. Wow.. something you never see for sale...Butch and Dave spoons. Originated out of Hughes marina. Like a NK but more action. I already have to much stuff already. Or I would own them..
  5. We were out there Sunday out of Hughes. Two bites landed one mature in 140FOW on meat. There was some monster piles of bait out in 200. Find a good screen and try to go back thru and the fish and bait were gone.Nice afternoon on the water and the sunset was very cool... The fish was turning black..
  6. I hope we get our plastic bags back.
  7. The wires on my remote cable control broke loose and there was enough insulation color left to identify the correct terminals to solder the wires back on. The problem I am having is it locks in correctly in my driveway but on the water it will not lock in..{boat moving} I have the manual it says you should not have to reset the calibration after the initial calibration. Anyone have suggestions on what the problem may be? Do I try and re calibrate it?
  8. Looking for a remote control for a simrad AP14. It has 3 connector pins. used to turn autopilot on off and adjust gain. If you think you have one I will try to figure out how to post picture..... new phone
  9. A 7/ 23 report out of Hughes.. Fished 7am to 7 pm. Quite a few marks 140 to 200 range. Quite a bit of bait in the area towards the end of the day. Had 3 hits on meat. Had a salmon on cowbells for awhile. Final score Fish 4 fisherman 0. Long day. If anyone caught anything I did not hear it on the radio.
  10. This was the water color of Cayuga last weekend. We caught fish but they were not in the areas we normally fish. Fleas were manageable . Made up a Skateman line cleaner. It worked OK. But learned another flea trick... When you reel your line in keep the rod tip in the water sometimes the water would wash them completely off rather than plugging up the rod tip.
  11. Water was a yellowish brown green . Did not look like algae . Rippin currents. IMO the lake flipped.My regular areas did not produce fish. Best bite was down the middle...... 1st fish would have made the board but we threw it back thinking we would get one bigger..
  12. The picture of the kid holding the laker should be on the cover of NY outdoors..
  13. looking for a friend. PM me we will try and figure out year ,model and fitment They might be all the same. If someone knows let me know.. I could not get the prefix to say wanted.
  14. I would like to thank Skateopedia,Hop and Troutman 87 for hooking me up with the proper Seth Green leader connectors. JJBat150 that patent is just cool thank you.There was no book to follow so I went by my experience . I had a old rollertip 5ft boatrod with a Penn 49 reel.. I used 7 strand wire for the mainline tieing all connections with a figure 8 knot.I ran them 15 ft apart I used 7ft long 30lb test leaders for the spoons . I have 4 different colors of 30lb I figured that would help with tangles. It caught a rainbow and a brown on Owasco last weekend. Both fish hit the same lure on the middle leader. The rainbow was the 2nd fish and chewed the paint off the lure. A lure I only had one of..... I have several now. I usually just fish one lure per rod and try to keep them properly tended. This meat rod set up is kinda fun. Even with the short leaders the brown and the rainbow got tangled around the dipsey wires. Kinda nice to run something different for a change..
  15. I found it. made in Trumansburg NY. It has a thumb clutch and a spring around the rod end to soften strikes. I can see why the old timers smelled like liniment Running this machine one handed all day.. Ive had this probably 50yrs. Its spooled with copper.
  16. I just remembered I would run a twin minnow on the center leader. It was like a flatfish. Would make the whole line vibrate. I have been looking but I cant seem to find it . Its a pistol grip copper line reel . It was factory made so there must be a few around if anyone has a picture..
  17. Fished the owasco derby last weekend . Fleas are just showing up. Time to take the inline rods out of the boat. This Brn was good enough for 2nd. Dodger fly. caught 3 of them. Plus a few lakers and a bow. Great little lake.
  18. I can not post the entry form ,maybe someone else can.. Headquarters is Bears in Lansing.
  19. Check out the Cayuga lake report 6/14.  Why those guys keep those little fish....

    1. stinger


      I guess those guys are at a different place than we are. So far this year three salmon came home with me. My wife won't eat fish so me and my dog have a go at it once in awhile. My buddy that goes a few times a year likes lake trout so we'll box a few for him when he goes.

  20. I was never good at pick up lines....
