  1. The perch are hitting minnows.My son lives on the lake and switched from plastic to minnows and is getting nice catches of large perch. Set up a dropshot rig with the hooks20-30" over the sinker. Good luck.

    It's easy, and usually warranted, to be concerned about applying more chemicals to our already saturated bodies. But in the case of permethrin it may help to know that it's a chemical that's naturally produced by chrysanthemum rather than a synthetic. So if it kills you, at least you won't become a zombie. Probably.


    Back to hunting. Pequod was out with me last night and took a five-point from one of the Millennium stands. The deer had no idea he was around, and if you know Jim, you know he usually smells like fish :rofl:. Being 22 feet up is a great advantage.


    We took the deer to Jay's on Rt 259 and I anticipate it'll be ready to be picked up this morning. Jim swears by Swan's for sausage, and that's where most of it will go. First score on our property for the year. Not a monster, but it made Jim happy and it's been a few years since his last one with the bow, so he was shaking pretty good. That's a trophy in my book.

      When I ran that setup I ran the smaller Dipsy and a Romer release about 10ft. above the ball,and the main line off the ball. If you want to go real deep set your Dipsy on one or 0 and let out 200 or300ft. of wire,hook to the romer release and lower the ball to the depth you want and go from there. Good luck, I did well like that.

      Use large Dipsy for the deep setup. :).

  4. Start long, they have to be higher than the sides of the boat with the trailer in the water or you will mark up the sides of the boat or hang the boat up on one side or the other. You can cut them down later if you want. Been there and did that.:)

  5. A few years back I was trolling out of Sodus and having a good morning, about 10 oclock it turned off. We trolled around for an other hour with out a hit so I cleared the lines and dropped the temp. prob. down till I hit the right temp. zone at 4.5mph. them I dropped two move rods down with hi speed attacker spoons that they don't make any more on the riggers with fixed sliders at the same depth as the temp. gage. It wasen't long we were into fish again, Salmon and steelhead. I checked the GPS and I was still in the same water I fished in the morning.

    You have to slow down as soon as you hook up or you rip the hooks out.




  6. My 89 BaHa had ford V8s in it with points and that made me happy because I could tune them myself.They could sit all winter and start right up in the spring, no trouble at all.Some time in the spring I would change the plugs points condenser and rotator,and set the timing by ear, and they ran like a top. Never had one quite me on the lake. No reason to change anything. If it ain't broke don't fix it.:).

  7. I watched a hen and 9-10 3\4 grown youngins. They were walking down the road in front of my house with a cat watching then like they were dinner. The cat wondered up to them like he didn't know they were there, when he was close to them  in a quick move they surrounded  the cat and were about to kick his but, he ran like hell to get away from them, he changed his mind about turkey dinner and they left alone. I think those birds were going to have that cat for lunch.

  8. Injuries like that do effect antler development.

    Six or seven years ago I had a tiny buck walk up with in two ft.of me,it was about 2.5ft. tall and had the same horn deformity. I think it was 6or8 months old or less. The following season I was talking to a neighbor and I told him about this deer, he told me it was living in the patch of woods across the road from where I hunt and was doing well.That was in the HoneyOe Falls area. I don't think it was the same deer. Do you think he got into it with a bigger  buck and got his butt kicked?Just a thought.

  9. I tried to launch at the I-Bay launch this morning ,but it looked very iffy.  So I drove to the Genny where the launches are always deep enough and from there we turned west. This proved to be a waste of time so we picked up and went east until we ended up east of I-Bay. There the browns were cooperating. We fished in 50 foot water with 2 dipsies (46 and 70) 2 riggers (27 and 43) and 2 8 color cores off the boards at about 2.5 mph. We used dream weaver super slims with superman lures, the riggers with stinger scorpion and chicken wing and some other bright colors. 8 browns later we called it a day. Probably the last day this year. Next week I'll be fishing under the Golden Gate Bridge.


    Better take your GPS with you the fog rolls in really thick through there. :(
