    I-Bay Largemouth

    It is tough to fish on the weekends due to boat traffic. Early AM during the week is possible but can still get busy. It fishes like the other bays of Lake O. I suggest whacky worms off the ledges. Bay has a little of everything. Ledges, Lilly pads, weed beds, some small bays. It is hit and miss like any other fishing. Last couple years seems like the fishing was down, but i have been fishing the fingerlakes more.

    Bass ripped off the beds

    Question, Why does Erie not have the same issue with the Gobies eating bass eggs that Ontario has. I am not saying that Gobies do not eat eggs as i am not a Marine Biologist, but I have fished Erie for years and their population seems to be stable. Does the shallow water basin play into it? Do the bass there spawn in areas with less Gobies? I know the day of Hedges and 30 fish days are gone, but i have heard the West end of the lake has picked up. Anyone have any thoughts?
  3. i go as slow as i can and last week only one kind of lure was working.
  4. Anywhere from 8-20 feet of water. Look for the green water and they should be in there. Only lures i took fish on were Bay Rats Goby and BT candy. Have taken a couple on a jointed rapala chartruse. Long leads and slow. Keep an eye on the other boats. If you see them catching try to switching it up. Slow down / speed up / different lures. Last Sunday took everything off the riggers for some reason. Hang in there you will get them. Good luck
  5. Going to try and do the same with my Father this weekend. Tough when they start to slow down.
  6. I was out Sunday and it looked like back in the ESLO days. had to be 20 boats out. We went 5/6 on browns but we could only get them to go on bayrats. I am sure we could have done better but only had 2 on the boat. Nothing else took a shot and 5 hits were on the BT candy. Anyone else have luck on any other baits? Question for those that run boards, is there a reason to run them 200 feet from the boat with that much traffic. We took all the fish off the downriggers but i spent most of the morning dodging boards. Good luck to all going this week.

    tracking

    "targeted" emails are normally a sign of a virus. Good time to run a virus scan and change email password.
  8. Cleaned 5 on Friday. All had Gobies in them. Caught 3 on a Goby Bayrat. 2 of them were starting to fatten up.

    Sutters on I-Bay

    Do the shad die after spawning or is it a lack of oxygen issue? There were a bunch in the lake as well. I don't remember ever seeing this many dead.
  10. Nice fish. Did you launch out of the bay or river? Was there a lot of garbage in the water? Thanks
  11. congrats on getting out. looks like that brown never spawned. Pretty colors on it.
  12. You can really mount anything you want on the track system. I have all the rod holders mounted on them for when i troll. You can get a plate for it and mount it there. Based on the floor plan i would go with the fury. Looks to be wider than the rebel on this one. Assuming the sides are the same height. Lund makes a great product and i got mine from Seager as well. Have always had good success with them and they have treated me right. I have the rebel 16.25 and it has the same layout as the fury for seating. It has a nice wide beam and a high gunwale as well.
  13. I have the Lund rebel 16.25 50HP bought it in 2008. I love the boat. Been in a lot of weather i probably should not have been in. It rides great in the waves if your smart about it. The swing trailer allows me to keep it in the garage all year. Can't say enough about it. I use it for bass, pike, perch, trout salmon. I have had it on Erie, Ontario and every finger lake around. Great boat all around.

    My 2017 deer season

    First deer i ever shot I hit in the jugular. He went down and then jumped back up. Had hair and a little blood then nothing. Tried to track it with friends and no luck, Next day keep searching and then found the puddles. Was very interesting for a first track. Glad you found her.
  15. I used jplugs down 5 foot or so and flat lined. Went a little faster than normal 2.5 - 3 MPH seemed to work last i did it. That was a couple years ago.
