  1. that looks like a blast! I used to predator hunt, or try at least...I enjoyed it more than deer hunting!
  2. How do you hunt ducks from a boat? Probably an absurd question, but don't you worry about other boat traffic, people's docks, houses etc? Do you hunt near shore, out in the middle of the lake? Do ducks hang around the shores, or do they like the open water (granted it depends on the specieis). Growing up in the Finger Lakes I've always wondered this...just curious! Not looking to criticize or for spots etc.
  3. I've noticed the same thing with Seneca Lakers. I wonder what the time frame is-does it take years of a particular diet to change a fish's color, or is it seasonal? Can a an individual fish be white in say the summer months when it is pelagic, while orange in the winter if it happens to move in shallow and feed on crustaceans? Just thinking out load... Re: Spiny Water Flea - The spiny, long 'tail' of this plankton is actually a defense against predation: predators have a difficult time swallowing the crustacean. It's ability to avoid predation in part helps this species outcompete other, native, plankton species. However, maybe planktivorous fish -most salmonids when they are larval or fry- can/are adapting and have found a way to eat the critters...?
  4. hey very cool pics! That lake is beautiful...what did you lose those lures on?
  5. very cool! Congrats on those lakers! How far did you end up paddling?
  6. Congrats on a great day! How did the fish run in terms of size?
  7. Just out of curiousty, how is the river structured-is it flat water, boulders and plunge pools etc? Are you fishing from a boat? Are there areas to shore fish? My graduate work revolves around big river ecology, so I wish I had stomped around the Susky before I moved to Virginia.
  8. I used to hunt Yates County before I moved to Virginia for grad school-how was the deer hunting been in that area the last few seasons? Just curious!
  9. Anyone have the recipe for a Michigan Cricket?
  10. That is a clever video, thanks for sharing that with us! P.S. - I am digging that fiesty older woman, get some!
  11. Congrats on the Pike! Are the pike hanging right on the bottom at those depths or suspending with the cover?
  12. hmmm I'm not sure when!?! I grew up in Dresden NY, and always considered fishing the peir but usually stuck around closer to home. I am curious to learn how any of you do if you get the chance to fish it. How deep does it get off the end of that thing?
  13. That sounds awesome! I've done something similar with lake trout before-highly recommend it
  14. Is there access to wadeable sections of the Mohawk River? It would be fun chasing smallies on the fly!
