  1. Happy New Year everyone. I have learned alot from this site and appreciate all the great info that everyone shares. Hopefully 2009 will be a better year for me to get out on the water than 2008 was...dang I need a new boat!!!!!
  2. BTTT... Rods now have 150 yards each of 10LB power pro on them. $100 for the pair. I can possibly deliver them if you are in WNY
  3. we took a trip off of Barcelona on Sunday in my brother's starcraft Islander and had a great time in 80-90 FOW west of the harbor. The best action seemed to be 45-60 feet down. We mostly used worm harnesses off of lead core, riggers and dipsys. We ended up with a cooler of 'eyes and a bonus steelhead caught off a watermelon NK about 40 feet down. Must have had 30+ fish (' eyes, perch, and bass) on over the course of a few hours in the morning, landing over 20 of them.
  4. Nice!!!! Glad to hear that you did well and had a great day. We have spun a few dipsys by letting them out too fast or turning too tight and having them go slack for a moment.
  5. Great to hear that the browns are active. Sounds like a nice day to be on the water.

  9. count me in....I am now 'boatless in Brockport' since my father moved away and took the boat to S.Carolina
  10. I know how lucky I was, with dad paying for the boat, trailer, tow vehicle, insurance and half of the tackle....All I had to pay for was 4 riggers, 8 rods, line, spoons, dodgers, flashers, flies, trolling motor, and gas. With him moving I am feeling the need for a boat of my own and I am sure that I'll be spending a huge amount of money soon - perhaps in 2009 or so....just don't tell the wife!!! Till then I'll make do with whatever I can to get on the water.
  11. light green? Dark Green? Hunter Green? Mint Green? or this green: :mrgreen:
  12. I think I'll save most of my money this winter so I can chip in on gas next year for whichever ones of you are looking for 'two rods' on any given day...LOL The better half said I can get whatever boat I want as long as I can pay for it....I am stashing money under the mattress for a boat....SHHHH!!!!
  13. Good freaking GOD Ray...that's a ton of greenbacks!!! I got off cheap - probably less than $1000 per year. It was nice not having to pay for a boat or motor. I did have to pay for all the gas - for both the tow vehicle and the outboard. Probably $200 in tackle, $400 in new rods this year, plus food, gas, launch fees..Still easily under $1000 for a year...
  14. Thanks waterlogged, I passed the info onto my wife....then she mentioned something about new living room furniture and more landscaping for the yard next year... Someday....someday....
  15. Just call me " boatless in brockport ", or " two rods " if you prefer. Dad is moving and taking the boat with him, so my wish list consists of anything that will float..... Hopefully a 22' islander will find its way under my christmas tree this winter...
  16. Wire good.... Fleas bad..... There's nothing like a big king on the end of a wire spooled rod.
