  1. Guys.. Thanks for the feedback! At least I've got a few ideas now. I may just have to go browsing tonight! Gotta hit Gander for walleye bait for the morning anyway! Good Fishing, Sluggo (Chris)
  2. Here's the deal.. I've been hooked on walleye for the past twenty years or so but a buddy and my fishing partner want to try salmon fishing this year. I'm sure that most of my stuff will work.. I've got downriggers, in-line boards, lots of dipsy's, plenty of rods and reels (Daiwa SGLC's in 17's,27's and 47's).. most are spooled with Powerpro 30# braid.. with leadcore on some of the big ones. The problem is that I don't think my worm harnesses, small stickbaits or little spoons will do the job. I've got about 300 bucks in Gander cards and could use some help in deciding on what terminal tackle to get. I realize that this won't buy me much, but what would be some good, basic stuff that I really should have if I decide to get serious about this? I know I've got a few boxes with J-plugs, NK Mags and cut-bait rigs, but I could use some advice to help fill a box for salmon and trout fishing! I'll probably be fishing out of Oswego or Sandy Pond (if there's a way out). Thanks.. and Good Fishing, Sluggo (Chris)
  3. Yep.. That would probably be me! I haven't seen too many other boats heading up Struble lately besides mine! The big one's put away for the winter.. the little one stays rigged, ready and in the garage till the river freezes over. Good Fishing, Sluggo (Chris)
  4. Slipbob..Small world..I live on the other corner of Struble Rd, but I think I built just after you left town! If you're visiting town and see my garage doors open and a black truck in the drive.. stop for a cold one. Fellow fishermen are always welcome! Good Fishing, Sluggo (Chris)
  5. Walt.. Was that you I saw waving from the highway as I was hammering them on the river? You should have stopped and launched! The conditions are perfect down there right now.. although the bite's slowed a bit. I picked up three nice eaters yesterday and released a 6-7 lb. pot-bellied female. I should stay good (or get better) right through the end of the season! Good Fishing, Sluggo (Chris)
  6. Nice job..and great pics! I'm still pounding the Susky here and doing quite well on them. It's gone from "fast and furious" to "having to work for them", but I certainly won't complain! Just being able to launch the boat on New Years Day is quite a treat! I can take this weather for a few more months..thank you! Good Fishing, Sluggo (Chris)
  7. Big-o.. Wow! Great pics and report! I've hit Quinte several times, but never for the late fall bite. We do get piggies like those on Erie, but I don't think our average would match yours. We started fishing the Mud Bay area of Ontario recently and intercepted a few of your fish on the way across the pond..but don't worry.. we didn't get many! I don't ice fish, but I understand that a good number of walleye winter over in Mud Bay.. hoping they stick for the opener so we can get a shot at them! Good Fishing, Sluggo (Chris)
  8. LS... So what did you see down there? I've got one on the big boat that we've hooked up to the downriggers. Kind of fun.. but the novelty wore off pretty quick and it just sits on the shelf now. I'm stuck at work right now..but the boat's with me and I hope to be out there by 2! Good Fishing, Sluggo (Chris)
  9. These guys covered it well, but I'll chime in anyway. I have two Garmins.. one mounted in the boat and a handheld as backup. As for accuracy of both speed and location.. they're almost identical. As Shellback said though.. the handheld is tough to read with it's small screen! If it's mainly for using on a boat, I'd definitely go with a larger, permanent mount model. I can't even imagine leaving the dock on BIG water without one! Good Fishing, Sluggo (Chris)
  10. I spent another four days last week fishing our local stretch of the Susquehanna. I've got almost fifty years of experience fishing it.. and until a few days ago.. would have bet money that there are no Largemouth Bass in there. The other day I caught two on consecutive drifts! The first was the largest I've ever caught and the second was slightly larger! 22 and 23 inchers! All I can figure is that they got washed in from a neighboring pond during the summer flood. Anyway.. the walleye bite is still hot and those annoying muskys are still hitting as well. I've got next week off so I'll do my Christmas shopping (takes about an hour) and maybe a little fishing. Good Fishing, Sluggo (Chris)
  11. I've been pounding the Susky down here near Binghamton for the past month or so and doing very well on the walleyes. Getting limits of nice eater size fish almost every outing, with lots of bigger ones going back in to breed. I did have to keep a big girl a few weeks back that got stuck too deep and wasn't going to make it. She weighed in at 7.4 on the scale at home. What a great fill in for when the big boat gets put away for the winter! Sure hope the ice stays away for a while yet! Hope to be out there tomorrow and Sunday... Good Fishing, Sluggo (Chris)
  12. I've fished Black River from Dexter well out into the Bay several times and don't think I've ever caught a walleye there! Must be my timing is off! I'll keep and eye out for your posts on when the action starts so I can at least come up and watch! Good Fishing, Sluggo (Chris)
  13. Kingfisher.. I see that you're from Cape Vincent. Do you hit the waters around Mud Bay for walleye? I started fishing there a couple years ago since my brother-in-law built a house there.. great place! I haven't gotten numbers, but the walleyes are huge! Just curious if there's a "fall" bite as they move into the bay to winter? I only open water troll during the summer there. Good Fishing, Sluggo (Chris)
