  1. Was able to get out for a morning and evening hunt today. Really felt good about shooting something today. Almost got a doe and a coyote during the morning hunt but things didn't work out. Had some nice bucks on cam lately, just had to be in the right spot. Tonight was the night. Sat on the ground on a field edge with some rolling hills that the deer feel comfortable down in. Had some small bucks come out first. About half an hour later one of the bucks I've been looking for came out and came into the opening I needed. First time using both buck tags. Great day!
  2. I have 2 matching wire dipsy setups for sale. Okuma glt 9' dipsy rods with okuma magda 30 reels. Rods are brand new, reels used half a dozen times this summer. Twili tips also included and need to be installed. Asking 300 all together.
  3. The bows were sublegal or just legal. We didn't measure. Just let them go. Forgot to measure. Figured maybe we'll catch them when they're bigger or someone else will.
  4. My boy and I have been up a few times for spring browns. We're excited for it. A little depressing getting the boat ready for winter today.
  5. I appreciate all of your help. I currently have two 1000' wire dipsy setups with twilitips. My main reason asking about braid is that I want something for early spring and late fall that is lighter than and not as bulky as my wire setups. I'd most likely use the braid when the fleas aren't around and the wire when they are around. They work great but it would also be nice to have 2 braid setups as well.
  6. I've been looking at a few different ones...daiwa wilderness, daiwa great lakes, okuma classic pro glt. Trying not to spend a bunch as I most likely won't be using them during flea season.
  7. I'm planning on getting some diver rods for braid. I mainly fish the finger lakes and lake ontario occasionally. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance
  8. Got out for what was out last trip of the season yesterday. Only fished for a couple hours or less because of the incoming rain. Tried for rainbows and got 3 small ones. Still a great time though. 2 bit diver setups and one on a 3 color. Dreamweaver ss and stinger size spoons worked. I appreciate all the info and cooperation from people here. This was our first real season downrigging, using divers and planers all together. Never had much experience with riggers or divers. Learned alot. Now time to upgrade a few things for next spring. Tight lines!
  9. Scored on Wednesday with this buck. Saw him and almost shot him a few days earlier. Had him on the camera a good number of times. Came from thick bedding in a hurry to get to the next bedding. Got him to stop at 15 yards. Shot looked good and felt good. Arrow didn't look good so waited 4 hrs and tracked. Ended up knicking the heart and double lung. He must have went down within seconds. Went 50-75 yards. Glad I was cautious.
  10. Was finally able to find some time to fish with what's been a busy fall. Took my son and a buddy along with his dad out for their first trolling experience. Fished east and west sides and found some hungry fish. Didn't set the world on fire but had a great time with almost nonexistant boat traffic. Went 5 of 6 on trout...3 Rainbows and 2 Lakers. Was mainly looking for bows so I call it a success. Biggest rainbow was around 24" with biggest laker being in the same neighborhood. The big rainbow was a beauty. Biggest laker took a gambler rig with flasher. Fish took dreamweaver ss and standard stinger sized spoons. Would like to get out and do this a couple more times before boat goes into storage.
  11. Is the hatchery open to visitors since they did the improvements? I've been wanting to bring the kids for a visit.
  12. Haha no wapatula. Clean as a whistle
