  1. That is correct Jerry, sample size is everything. If you have only a limited number of years and small data set, you won't get an accurate picture of the situation. ~Tricia Just my two cents! 😊 Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. The DEC do look at these posts and use them to get a feel for what the fishing community is concerned about.
  3. Meeting is tonight at 6pm at the Irondequoit Fish & Game Club, 658 Bay Front S, Rochester, NY 14609
  4. Would like to thank all of you for your well wishes, thoughts, prayers and support ! Tricia and I are so touched by the outpouring of support that we have received. Can't thank you enough! Just wanted you all to know that I am home now and doing well and getting better every day. Look forward to seeing you all on the water soon! Here is to a great fishing season ahead! 😊
  5. Two small bags off the sides will keep your boat straighter. One big bag off the back can possibly get caught in your prop.

  9. Hi All, There are great differences in the bags.. .regardless if they are called drift socks or trolling bags. I guess I will put my own plug here... My bags are heavily reinforced to give them extra strength. I use UV Marine heavy canvas and webbing. I can post a picture later.. don't have one where I am logged in right now. I have made these for other captains and they have been very happy with their performance. They open easily and really hold up to the heavy use that we put them through. You can give me a call at 585.615.6504 if you are interested. Can't wait to get back on the water! Tight Lines - Tricia

  12. Cancelled am trip due to rough water, but fished our afternoon trip in 2-3 footers. Started in 10-15fow at 1:30, made three passes off the pier head and hooked up with one good fish and lost it. Ran offshore and fished 400fow, temp was 65degrees at the surface and down to 100fow. We did 10 Steelies, 10ft to 90ft down and did 2 kings down 115 & 125 on flashers and flies. White on white flasher w/ mirage flies. Biggest fish was 31.8lbs. Steelies averaged 6-8lbs.
  13. Thanks you guys for the birthday wishes!! Wish I was celebrating on the pond too !!
  14. The turnout of 29 boats for the first "Sandy Creek Shoot-Out" is a testament to the hard work and good planning that went into making it such a successful day... despite mother nature! I would like to thank Scott B, Legacy, Keith, Charlie and Mike Engle for putting together such a wondeful event. You all did such a wonderful job. And a big round of thanks to all the businesses who donated their products and especially the North Star Gun club. It was a great opportunity to finally put a face to the people that we hear on the radio. It was a pleasure meeting you. Thank you to Tank & Sarah for sharing your day with us.. because it wouldn't have been the same without you guys there! It was a blast! Congratulations to both the organizers and fisherman who made this such a wonderful event. We look forward to the SECOND ANNUAL Sandy Creek Shoot-out!

  16. Tom, Our condolences to you and the Caruana family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.
  17. Went over the boat to fuel it up and get the rods ready for the morning. Tricia and I decided to get the rods ready in front of the creek in about 15fow. With the engines off, just drifting along and rigging rods, we saw jumping fish. To our surprise, they were all mature salmon. When we got done, we grabbed our spinning rods and began casting fire-tiger J13 jointed rapalas. After about 20min of casting, just as the sun was setting, I hooked up w/ a nice female king. Here is the pic.. I am going to start in 15fow in the morning. Will post tomorrow when we get done w/ our trip.
  18. Golly Gee Scott B.. THAT is FUNNY! A little hard on the beav ( I mean Brian) were't ya! Love u guys! Tricia
  19. I was with him when he was changing the batteries. I was holding the flashlight and watching his back with the machete. On our way in, I did not see any "carry-in, carry-out" signs or "freebies golf" baskets... just farm equipment and fruit trees.
  20. Hope you have a great day Ray!!! Jason and Tricia
  21. Tank, some lovely fish you got there! Great report and pics! -T Wouldn't want you think this post was from Jay...
  22. I run 4 dipseys. And to keep from tangling from running 2 dipseys on one side of the boat you need to run them at least a 1.5 setting apart. Therefore, one side of the boat the dipseys were set at 1.5 and 3 and both out 250 feet. And on the other side of the boat, the dipseys were set at 1.5 and 3 and both were out 350 feet. Hope this helps. Good luck.
