  1. Absolutely.... Short cores I use 20# mono for backing... My set ups for short cores are pretty simple... Starboard side...both 3 colors.... Port both 5 colors.. Run the lead till knot gets in the water..let it out a pass or two on the reel... For releases I use Amish Clippers releases... 10 color cores I use power pro backer. I think power pro slips a little out of Clippers, so I let the 10 out similar to short cores ( knot in water + 2 passes) but I will use a rubber band or two... Half hitch them around the power pro and snap them into the release.... You can also use Scotty pinch pads as well. I use them for my copper set ups.

  2. I dedicate 4 rods for short cores... Two 3 colors and two 5 colors. In recent years I've been running stick baits on them... You can switch from regular stick baits to deep divers to achieve greater depths. If it's a spoon bite... You can throw a dive bomb on the leader of one of the cores to get the rig down further. I have two ten color rods also... Copper and Weighted steel have been very popular in recent years. I run many different lengths of copper from time to time, however I have a lot of confidence in lead cores... One hint is to let out your lead until the knot from the lead/ Backer termination hits the water... Then let out a couple passes on the reel.... My theory is the with a little backer in the water, the lead core will sway more...especially in sportier conditions... Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Started out front hoping some Sharks would be hanging on the mud Line temperature break. Didn't take long to see the Kings had vacated that area. Ran East and found a nice patch of 45degree greenish water. Tossed out the gear and let her rip. Kings were there and on the Chew. Best set ups were 3 and 5 color cores with Bay Rat long shallows on them. Critic Shad and my secret Rats were the best. It was great to see all the boats out on a beautiful morning... This week's forecast looks kinda bad with NE winds but next weekend looks to be shaping up nicely.. Get after 'em Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. I use Clippers releases and they work mint on shorter cores... 10 color I might use a rubber band half hitched on the backing then put rubber band into the release. Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. ABSOLUTELY! Great post Mike. Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Waterfowl hunting in NY blows now anyway... Birds migrate down on cold snaps in December. Usually when the first season is just ending or after its closed. They have time to get acclimated to the area, find feed and settle in. Now they arrive... Fly into a Hot LZ and never get a chance to settle in. Last year I saw big flocks arrive, get shot at by every dock or Floating bush and then hauled the mail. The birds that stayed got super stale... Real fast. I will be spending my money out of state now. Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Cold weather lately has kept the water temps down a bit but the fishing has been heating up. Best spoon for us was the stinger ( regular size NBK) but anything green and silver took a shot. With the kings around, I tossed an old school black and silver rebel on a 5 color core...didn't take long for a Shark to rip it off the board.. If you go out this time of year, fish the marks. We caught kings on just about every rig in every part of the water column. No set depth was more productive and I was chasing marks with the riggers all morning. The marks on the bottom may not necessarily be Lakers... Pulled a couple kings off the floor. Tight lines..... Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. From the Greece PD... Sgt. Joe Toomey.... Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. 100% spot on... Joe had a hint of saltiness but he was approachable and generous. He and I would talk about his "past lifetime" career and we would laugh how some things were the same and how a lot has changed. A lot of the old timers I spoke with said Joe was a good cop but had a sense of humor. I met him many years after he retired , but he still had the swagger of an old time beat cop. I was like "Damn... I bet this guy has some war stories". The more I got to know him, the more stories I heard and I was exactly right. I remember telling Joe a story about a real crappy brawl I was involved in at work. Guys got hurt, but it ended up being OK. Joe shook his head and said.." Better you than me Kid. I couldn't do it again." We just laughed and got back to talking about the the fishing... It's going to be rough hearing Thunderstruck now.... But when it comes on, it's going to be loud...

  10. Bruce.... I was in contact with someone from Robert Duffy's office tonight. Very receptive... Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. I don't know what it is but I love the Saltwater shows.... No question that King Salmon are top of most lists up here, but man I've got the Salt bug... Bad! 3 and change years and it's adios NY for the winters... Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Bruce..... How did you guys do in sweden? Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Right on Kevin... Appreciate all the help you have been... Just goes to show what can be accomplished when like minded folks get together... Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. I've been rolling down to check on the youngsters just about every day. Fed them at 4pm yesterday and they are starting to boil up after the feed. We are tracking the feed schedule and the volunteers are doing an excellent job. With last week's cold weather and the cold evenings coming, the river temperature will not be an issue. I want to thank all the volunteers who broke their rear ends to get the Pens ready and the guys and gals who interrupted their lives to keep this program going while we are in the middle of this virus debacle. Thank you to the DEC fisheries for continuing this important program on the south shore. They could have caved and cancelled the program, however they stayed the course and allowed us to do what we do... Be well.... The ramps and Marinas are open.... Go stretch some monofilament!

  15. Go on Roku... Find Apps.... Search... Type in Frndly TV.... Once you get the app, go to the Frndly TV guide and the 3 good channels are the last ones... Sunday AM is loaded with Saltwater ... I'm a knuckle draggin neanderthal and could figure it out....lmao Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. A few months ago Specrum got rid of the Outdoor Channel. You had to buy a sporting package to get it. I was complaining one day and my buddy asked if I had a Firestick. He said to download the FrndlyTV app. The Frndly TV app has Outdoor Channel , Sportsman Channel, and the World Fishing Network. The app costs money but it was cheaper than just the one Outdoors channel on Spectrum. World Fishing Network is awesome. Lot of King Salmon fishing from BC and Alaska. There is also quite a few Saltwater shows. The cool thing is, you can go on the guide and play shows up to 2 days prior. There are other channels on Frndly TV, but those 3 named are just what the Doctor ordered... Be well and tight lines.... Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. I have a Savage 10ML2... Simply awesome!!! They are really hard to find, but totally worth it... Smokeless kick A$$ ... Knockem to the dirt goodness... Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. Tommy he used to break my balls and call me MissyDemeanor.... I'd call Joe up and say..." Hello...is this Capt Gloomy of the Irish Blunder?" ... Joe would laugh and tell me to stop hanging out with Kyle... Or better yet, I got caught in the middle of a potatoe gun war between Toomey and another unnamed Capt... Looked like Patriot missiles flying over my hard top... Some great laughs over the years... Will miss that big smirk... Sucks Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. I had a feeling that the closure of Launches and Marinas was going to happen, so I splashed the rig 2 weeks ago.. Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. I initially heard the season dates were going to be the same for 5 years then re-evaluated... Is that correct? Just wondering how long we are stuck with these dates Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. Wood... May 10-12 lbs... Fought weird. I thought it was a shaker BT , but once he got to the boat it was on! Had part of him for Easter Dinner... Delicious! Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. Found some really nice Green water with a 2 degree break. Very good chew this AM.. Regular size BTs took bright colored Bay Rat Short Shallows ...Citric Shad was the best by far. Highlight was the first King of the season and a diesel Atlantic... Find the stained water...you will find fish... Tight lines.. Be well Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  23. One of the best guys I've known... I'm speechless right now... Make you wonder why he had to leave us and there are so many $hitbags walking this earth... Calm seas and fair winds Thunder! Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  24. Thanks H.D. we are very fortunate to have a great bunch of guys who work their tails off to get the Pens in and the crew of guys who come and feed them. Without those guys, the Genny Pen Project would not happen. I can't thank Skip Shumway enough for all he has done for our program.. On a different note, I received word that all volunteers at all Pen sites have the full backing of the DEC. Pen projects are a state program and are deemed essential so they will continue even though some marinas may be closed. I was told to remind all volunteers the 6ft social distancing when at pens for feedings or work parties. Sent from my VS996 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
