  1. The Skunk'd Too, a 2006 Starcraft Superfisherman 180 is for sale. Check it out at: http://rochester.craigslist.org/boa/1770492937.html The price is negotiable, especially for LOU members!
  2. I've got one last chance, out of the Genny, this Wednsday before putting up for the winter. Just wondering if should even bother heading out. If I do, any suggestions? Thanks...
  3. How late in the year does the Lake Ontario trout & salmon fishing stay productive? Also, besides from downriggers, are planer boards still part of the program? Thanks for the help.
  4. I've never targeted pike before & I'm planning a short day trip to Conesus Lake tomorrow morning. Just wonder where should I look? Live bait or artifical? Any tips would be greatly appreciated...
  5. I may be planning on taking the kid fishing to Conesus this week. Anything going there?
  6. I'm all set to head out of Genny for the first rip of the season Friday morning. Although it would have been a late start since I've got to get the kid on the school bus. My wonderful wife was quick to point out that the registration had expired on the boat! I spent an hour at DMV Thursday renewing the trailer registration, looks like I'll be back there again.
  7. I recently came upon a set of long arm downriggers. Currently, I have two short arms running off the stern. Whats the best location for the short vs. long? Long off the stern & short off the side, or vice versa? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!
  8. We'll be heading out of Genny late tomorrow morning for the last trip of the season. Would anybody be able to offer any tips? Thanks!
  9. Started off early, for a change, today. When we got to the lauch at Genny, a dead battery! Not being superstitous or anything, but perhaps it foreshadowed the day ahead. I made sure to charge it yesterday, but now I've got some investigative work to do. A big thank you to the gentleman & his family with an 18' Tracker launching next to us for letting me borrow his spare battery to get up & running. Well, nothing bit, not even a release. Started in close East of Summerville to Durand in about 25-30', then worked around 110-120' from Genny to I-Bay. If nothing else, it was a beautiful day for a boat ride.
  10. If you're looking for somebody local, try Dan at Adirondack Illustrations; 352-7954. The guy does great work. He does the lettering/decals for a lot of fire trucks, police cars, etc. around Monroe County. He made the name decals for my boat and did some work for my Harleyas well.
  11. What is the address of the website you're referring to? Thanks!
  12. Any thoughts on treble vs. single hooks on trolling spoons? Advantages/disavantages, size, etc. Thanks!
  13. Doozer: Can you tell me where & what's been working? Thanks!
  14. I'm going to taking a break from trolling the "Big O" this week. I was wondering how the pike/tiger muskie fishing is on Conesus Lake. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  16. I'm collecting my beer cans to get enough $$$ for down temp./speed probe.
  17. Mr. Jax: I added a Humminbird Matrix 97 Combo "Fishing System" to the Skunk'd Too this year. Check it out at: http://www.humminbird.com/products.asp?ID=634 It is working well, so far. I think I paid around $600.00 for it & its expandable.
  18. Got a late start today (7/12 @ 10:30 & back by 3:00) & only had a few hours. Headed West towards Braddocks & did a N/S troll back to the Genny. Went 1/3. Got a nice brown on a NK Frog, 80' over 110', 2.0 on the GPS just off Russell Sta. Da' fleas were awful! Most important thing was that we all enjoyed being out on the "Big O"!
  19. I used to have a QUEG fishfinder thermometer but it quit working. I'd lower it on a rigger. I tracked down the company in NC, but they don't make them anymore. So, I bought a "Vexilar Deptherm". It works like this: dropped on a line, growing pressure forces water into the tube as the instrument descends. The volume of water trapped in the tube serves as a depth measurement column and is read off the side of the tube calibrated in feet. The thermometer on the other side assures close temperature readings if the instrument is left down for 30 seconds. General Application - Attach the Deptherm to line and let sink to bottom or any intermediate depth. Hold there for 30 seconds and return to surface. Read depth on the calibrated side at the top of the water column and temperature off the temperature plate. Invert instruments; press valve to release water. Shake until all water is out before using again. Downrigger Application - Clip the Deptherm Model 104 to your downrigger ball for monitoring water temperature and depth at the downrigger. When raising the ball for re-rigging, check the temperature and depth. Temperature readings on the Deptherm will not change while ball is being raised due to a delayed reaction (1 to 2 minutes).

  20. Lund: I got back into the Lake Ontario fishing last year. I spent a whole year with nothing. Just look at the name! I followed eveyone's advice, but still couldn't hook up. The best advice I got was " ... you gotta spend time on the water...". The next thing I did was book a charter this past spring. I paid close attention, even though the fishing was tough, it paid off. The next time we went out, I finally bagged a real nice coho. Everybody on this message board was a lot of help. Stay tuned to it!
  21. Wasn't really planning on fishing this morning, but my 6 year old daughter asked if we could. In getting a late start, around 10:00 AM & having to be back early, we put in in Charlotte. Headed East, she hooked up with a very nice 4lb. steelhead off the boards on a gold NK28 with green & orange edges. We were in about 120ft, off Forest Lawn going 2.1 MPH on the GPS. Surface temps. were around the 50 degree range. After a season & a half, we finally hooked up! Marked some fish between 20 & 40 down over 100-120 feet, but no takers. Either the kid is lucky or we're starting to figure this out!
  22. Has anyone had any luck out of the Genesee River lately? How about Sandy Creek? We're planning on heading out Friday morning. Oh, where to go...
  23. I'd like to take a moment to thank Capts. Steve (King Me) & Rich (Hooked Up) for todays trip. They worked hard in some COLD water out of Rochester. We went 3 for 4, but learned a lot about trolling the "Big O". Again, thanks guys!
  24. I tried the bucket today. Worked pretty good. I think I've got too many holes in it. I think what I'm going to do is get a couple of plugs & start plugging holes unitl I find the right amount & then replace the bucket. Thanks to all for the advice!
