  1. Anyone planning to fish this weekend? Headed up for Friday and Saturday. Any recent depth reports on how far out to start? Thanks, Josh
  2. Nice trip. We are headed up to fish Friday and Saturday. What depth are you fishing now? Im hoping when we are there they will be in 80-100fow. Thanks, Josh
  3. We put in at Sampson’s mid morning and trolled for a few hours. Nothing but weeds and flea’s. Ran three Spin docks with flys, a green lake troll with peanut and a spoon up high. Screen looked decent in front of the marina but no action. Anyone do anything this morning? We will be back at it tomorrow. We are the vintage tan/brown Lund.
  4. My have to remember that if they ban using herring for bait.
  5. Coastal Stripers or lake? We fish the Hudson in the spring but I have never thought of trying a flasher and fly for them. Do have any experiance with this?
  6. Walleye can be kind of tough. We catch them right in with the rainbows while trolling spoons close to the bottom structure (30-35 fow) Ive never seen anything with any size come out of there but have caught a few over 20". Seems like we catch a lot around 15-16". I think someone could do pretty well drifting live bait on structure but ive never tried it.
  7. Thanks for the info. I wasnt sure if you guys used the tinsle flies or streamer flies.
  8. Do you guys use flasher and flies on the finger lakes just like on Lake Ontario? I havent done any fishing on the finger lakes but I do some on Sacandaga lake for Rainbows but have never had any luck with flashers. I have some dodgers and spin doctors to use with normal great lake flies. I tried and 8" flasher with a smaller salmon fly once without any hits. I also have some Lake Clear wabblers but never have any faith in running them. I do much better with Mooslook wabblers and Michigan Stinger Scorpions.

  10. I'll be headed to Mexico tonight for Saturday and Sunday. Hopefully the weather cooperates. (the fish too).
  11. Was there any other color on it? I think I have something like that but it might have a touch of orange on it. I'll get a pic of it tonight when I get home. I am not sure of the name of it since it came in a spoon lot that I picked up on Ebay.
  12. Ray thanks for the info. I figured someone would have an idea to shorten the learning curve. I think I saw a video on either here or GLAngler that showed to take some of the lead out of the sheath and slip the mono in and tie a knot where the mono is in the sheath. Thanks again. Josh
  13. Can I use mono for a backer on a SWR with say 2 colors on it? Also, new fishfinder is comming today. When I mount the transducer do I want it below the hull on the transom or even with the hull? Thank you
  14. I am looking for Eagles Feet or something similar to mount a trolling board to a smaller boat with the rub rails. Let me know what you have. Thanks
  15. What is the best fishfinder/gps combo that I can buy for under $500? I am trading my boat for a smaller boat but I dont want to give up the gps and just go with a basic fishfinder. I do a lot of lake trolling and get out on Lake O a few times a year and the GPS is key for me with speed and the navigation. I am not brand loyal. Let me know guys. Thanks
  16. You guys are great. I'll get to it this week and adjust the shift cable. Hopefully that solves the issue and I wont have to replace anything. Again, thank you. Josh
  17. I am at work right now and cant get to check out that switch until later, but is it possible from trolling that this switch could wear out from running so much at just engauged in the shift position?
  18. Thats not a bad idea. Mine has the electronic ignition on it but maybe a new one would work better. I thought maybe the idle could be set too low but I'm not sure.
  19. Motor starts and idles fine, but when shifting the idle drops out and stalls quite often. If shifted quickly to get the rmp back up it will be alright. Makes for tough docking. Any ideas? thanks
  20. Took the fiance and my mother out for a vacation/ fishing trip. The weather coopertated with us for the most part. We did alright Saturday morning going 3/5 with two kings and a walleye. The kings were 22lbs and 14lbs. The walleye was about 8 lbs and something that we didnt expect to catch. All fish came in 120fow about 55-60 down. The walleye came on a full core off the board on a watermelon mag. The kings were both on a 28 wahoo behind a green spin doc. Saturday evening the waves picked up and the ladies didnt want to get tossed around out there so we had a nice camp fire. Sunday morning greated us with some nice weather til we hit 100fow and the waves kicked up. Mom actually got sick and it didnt bring us any luck. Didnt hear of anyone getting much on Sunday, although I heard that the guys that ran really deep killed them. Good luck to all and we will be back in a month. Josh "Santana" [/img]
  21. Ive probably seen it and never realized. Thanks for the responses. Spent the morning looking at new boats. The internet is the best way to check them out and not feel like you really need one. The salesman at the warehouse got me onboard a Sea Fox 216WA. Very nice boat with a hard top and what not. Now that I was on it and able to play with all the cool stuff hes got me hooked. Might have to talk the little lady into it. Good lukc to all. Josh
  22. Where is Catfish? I've fished Mexico in the fall for the run but am not all that familiar with other landmarks. I am thinking that you are calling the "silo" what we call the "candy cane". Looking to head out there sometime soon. Thanks and good luck.
