  1. A smartfish is an adjustable attractor that is fish shaped. It allows you to adjust the fin to make it rotate at different intervals/speeds. Go to legendaryproduct.com.....they are made by John Emory the guy that started Big Jon downriggers. They are a nice weapon to add to your arsenal.
  2. I'm heading up to the bar on Sunday...wondering how the ice and debris are around the river plume. I know last year it was pretty tough this same week. Any info would be appreciated...thanks Mike
  3. I would be interested to see the markings on the brown from Owasco. There are no lampreys in there and we caught a bunch of lakers with open sores last year. The DEC said it wasn't VHS but weren't sure what it was.
  4. If you really want to have some fun, try running the smartfish flasher from legendary products. The fins are adjustable and you can control how much or little you want it to rotate. I started using them last year with great success and have noticed certain days the fish just want a different action....and I can dial it in. As yankee said there are no rules and do not be afraid to try something different.
  5. I have the following reels for sale 1 Okuma Classic 202....very good condition with a drag upgrade..$15 1 Okuma Pro Classic 202 with drag upgrade...very good condition...$15 1 Daiwa Accudepth 27h linecounter...new condition......$25 All are great reels for the fingerlakes and in 100% working condition.
  6. I have 2 Daiwa Sealine 47LC reels for sale. Both are in excellent condition with smooth drags and strong clickers. I used them for one season as wire diver reels. I bought them from a guy that trolled for muskies...so they are lightly used. PM me your email if interested and I'll send pics. I'm looking for $50 each.
  7. I think I am selling 2 or 3 of them....2 are very lightly used and in great condition....they are the great lakes model with the graphite frames...looking for 50 each....let me know
  8. The laker came back negative for vhs.....thank god....but they called me for more samples for further testing .....unfortunately it was after I stopped fishing Owasco so we'll have to wait till next season. I ended up catching 25 fish with different degrees of these markings and alot with receeded gill plates. This is the first I've seen this type of sore on these lakers in all the years I've fished Owasco. Hopefully they can figure it out after further testing....thankfully it's not vhs.
  9. keith...is this sold??..you never returned my 2nd pm...let me know
  10. I have now caught about 8 fish that appear to have VHS from Owasco Lake. All are lake trout and the sizes vary from 17-25in. The DEC picked one up from me in August but the test results are not back. On 9-26 I had a great morning boating over 40 fish.....unfortunately 5 had signs of the disease with one seemingly full blown with the virus. The DEC was too busy to get this fish to test, but from all the pictures I've seen....it's almost certain. I'm going to try to post the pics, so bear with me. Keep an eye out if you are fishing there for sores that almost look like lamprey marks. I really hope it isn't true but it dosen't look good. Since the lakers provide the only consistent coldwater action on Owasco, this could be devastating. If you catch any....contact the DEC....let them know.
