  1. Started off infront of the bay in 45fow. Great water color with bait and fish, worked btw 45 and 60fow for 1 1/2 hours with no releases. Headed out to about 130fow and turned around as the sun was setting. Just as I was thinking I would have to pull the boat to powerwash the skunk off of it, We pulled a skipper king, couldn't have been dragging him to long only changed that spoon 20 min before we packed up. Nice night on the lake to bad the fish weren't hungry.
  2. Started off the bay in 70fow marked a bunch of fish til about 100fow. Started fishing for lakers eventhough i don't ever target them just trying something different. However today all the fish we were marking were in the top 50ft. So after half hour went back targeting kings. First rip on rigger at 50 over 105 mupped metallic frog. Like to say I dropped it but the fish took the spoon and leader. At first I thought I must have just hooked it up to the rubberband but it was not broke. All I can think is the swivel came loose. Turned around and about 95fow got another rip on a rigger nice teenager I had about 30ft from the boat when the wire with mt dew doc starts ripping. In all the commotion I drop my fish but my old man pulls a 15# king after a long battle. He loves the wire rods. he he. Thats him still crying. Needless to say circled that spot and a rigger pops and it's just a skipper witch I manage to drop, just before the drop the other rigger fires and my father pulls another teenager12#, he tried his best to hand that fish off to my but I figured the way my luck was going, i would just enjoy watching him fight it. At least someone on the boat has tired arms. Stayed on the water til 9:45pm. The chart lit up again with fish but the last knock-off was right around sunset. ended the evening 2for6, all fish released some not by choice. good luck bill ==================== (add pictures and any other details not captured above here)

Let a wire diver out a little farther to 150 and within a minute got my first king to fire on a spinny. Mt dew with a leader of 31' to mariage fly. Nice teenager took the wire out to over fourhundred feet before coming to the boat. Boated two more kings in the next 25 min off the riggers. one a skipper secound another teenager. Started packing things up around 8:45 and picked up another king 7# off the rigger. Hot bite was between 90-110fow. Black glow silver cups took rigger fish. As we were packing up the screen lit up with a lot of fish in 80 fow. Not the first time I've seen this. It seems like after the sun goes down and you start to pull lines there are fish all over the graph. good luck out there.UMMARY & FURTHER DETAILS ==================== (add pictures and any other details not captured above here)

  9. Fished this past sunday at irondequoit. Not much to report. Started in the bay by the condo's a few passes with nothing. Decided to see if the boat would fit under the bridge. Made it out to the lake and ran up to shipbuilders, water was gin clear, made one pass and picked up again and ran back to the bay where the water had more color. a couple passes in front then worked back twards duran with nothing. Started to rain so packed up with a big 0. Did get out friday morning and took 5 browns and a rainbow off russel, should have went back there. Best lure j-9 orange rapala.

  11. Hi my name is bill and i have a 10 month old beagle pup. I had her out quite a bit over the summer months, and at least a half dozen times since deer season ended. I have not seen much rabbit sign lately and she hasn't opened up yet on a track. I was wondering if I should try to get her running with some other dogs, or if it's just a matter of time. I try to get her out every chance I get. I was also thinking about finding info about beagle clubs. She is my first beagle, I have always owned labs but,don't duck hunt anymore. Any info would be appreciated.
  12. Fished in front of the bay form 6-915pm. First hit on wire dipsy out 125 on white crush spin-doc w/green blade out 125' hit hard and had him on for a few seconds then know one home. Next a new revloator and fly fired of the rigger set at 74' Know one home. Picked lines up @ 9:10 Dragging a skipper king. And a 4lb laker. Neither of the rigs which were were dragging fish. were in the water that long. The fleas we not to bad out there. Worked between 90-150fow. No down temp or speed on this boat. Makes it alot more challenging.
