  1. Got one on the Kootenai River on a Panther Martin spinner.....
  2. Years ago, my then 13 YO daughter was "lined up" on a tresspasser during turkey season, while working a bird.... she never had the safety off, but was shaken to the point of tears. I approached the guy and he literally ran away. Orange is a good idea when moving....... Carhartt brown, is not........ The story had a great ending as we called in, and she killed, a beautiful longbeard, 20 days into the season. One of the most memorable hunts of my life.
  3. Now that I have a kicker, I just throttle way back when fighting a fish.... but for years we used to go to neutral when fighting bigger fish, or fish that you wanted to get into the boat and release. It's really not a problem if you keep an eye on the boards and reengage forward to keep some control of them..... of course wind dictates feasibility..... with the wind, or gentle wind is no problem... other directions and wind speed require some attention and common sense. It is very doable..... or at least that's my experience.
  4. Chamberlain releases have an adjustment for rod release tension, and one for fish release tension. They can be adjusted so that you won't drag any fish...... walleyes, yellow perch, or silver bass.......
  5. could have been worse............ coulda forgot the plug...........
  6. It's perfectly legal to fish and possess fish, downstream from the first bridge...... so for Sandy, from the Parkway bridge to the lake is fine.......... it's upstream from the parkway bridge that it becomes a violation.
  7. There are multiple locations from Buffalo to the Pa line with decent ramps. Small Boat Harbor - Buffalo Sturgeon Point - Derby NY / Angola NY Cattaraugus Creek - 2 launches Hanover Town Launch, Sunset Bay NYS Launch Dunkirk Boat Ramp - Dunkirk Barcelona Harbor - Near Westfield I'm partial to the Catt for perch and walleyes....... but there can be good fishing out of any of those ports, depending on the season and the fish.
  8. Last Friday, off 4 mile, we trolled for 1/4 mile with the lines bouncing off bait..... Don't know that I've ever seen that b4.
  9. There's still some decent perch fishing out of the Catt..... We wound up with 55 yesterday, but did have to work for them. The fish we found were in 58 fow...... and we got fish on salted emeralds, and goldies...... one didn't really seem better than the other. We quit at 2:15. There was only one other trailer in the Hanover parking lot when we left. Gobies suck.
  10. Now that's a great smile! Congrats.
  11. 2 years ago? I guess the point is that we've seen cormorant populations building and spending time in the tribs where some of our trout and salmon are stocked..... They have to be impacting the numbers.
  12. The cormorants did a number on the Sandy Creek pen released salmon last year...... maybe they're getting fat on Browns too.
  13. Jakey...... We made a trip up on Sunday and never got a fish....... 4 boats we talked to at the ramp never got a fish...... it sure was a rough/tough day for us.
  14. You wanna see a waste...... go take a look at Sturgeon Point Marina in the town of Evans on Lake Erie........
  15. Drebs....... I launched a 16 ' aluminum boat off a roller trailer at the Fort North ramp on Sunday morning. The N ramp is very shallow...... But there was enough water for me to get out. There are no docks...... You'll have to launch and load from the ramp. I never looked at the South ramp.
  16. Docks were going in at 10:15 this morning.
  17. Be careful when launching there in this low water. The concrete ramps drop off sharply, and a couple of times a year trailer tires wind up off the end of the ramp when launching larger boats.
  18. https://coastwatch.glerl.noaa.gov/modis/modis.php?region=e&page=1&template=sub&image=a1.21062.1818.LakeErie.143.250m.jpg Looking pretty good. 40's and 50's next week will only help.
  19. I had the same problem as Jomat........... clicker failed on a lead core set up for walleyes.
  20. https://coastwatch.glerl.noaa.gov/modis/modis.php?region=e&page=1&template=sub&image=t1.21052.1600.LakeErie.143.250m.jpg Clear picture yesterday.
