  1. Lucas I know the one artificial cut bait was MC Rockets what was the one with the tail?

    I believe his username is hybridlures. He has a website hybridlures.simdif.com
  3. Yeah, after hearing the state of the ECO plight I definitely think they need our support. They are not the problem they do the best they can with limited man hours, equipment and lack of upper governmental support. We want them effective then we need to help them.
  4. I believe most of the people who go to the State of the Lake and other meetings and post actively here all want a healthy fishery with all the species treated with respect and managed to the best. We all need to remember that commonality before we make it a us against them proposition. Honestly I think the first step we all need to do is get on our local court systems to enforce our rules. To many fish leave this fishery do to illegal means. Davy you bring up the loss of Browns on the western ends. You don't have to look to far for answers here, there are cases of poaching with nets strung across complete creek channels during brown runs, small creeks wiped out buy gangs of organized poachers who are fishing for profit and not just the bend of the rod. Brown eggs are cherished by these guys and they seem willing to do what ever they need to in getting them. The DEC is running antiquated ticketing system with still all tickets written on paper and not going into the database so prosecutors know they are dealing with multiple repeat offenders. Putting these poachers out of business is a major thing we can do to help both our stream and lake fish. Maybe if we band together and fight the government to help support the ECO's and toughen and support poaching laws instead of pointing our fingers at each other we will all be better way off. We all gain when we work together.

    Based on my experience I think pretty much most every spoon would fit into that range. But don't hold nick responsible if I am wrong.

    Like you said I would want to speak for him. I asked him the same questions in a PM and the price is pretty variable depending on a lot of things. Basically the spoons condition, does he have to clean up and strip old paint, ect. Glo cost a little more. Best thing to do is PM and he can give you an idea based on what you want for your spoons. He is great to work with and very responsive. Sorry I can't give you a better answer but out of respect for Nick I just don't want to qoute prices he may have to live up to or may be wrong an lose business. I will say custom lures are not a way to get cheap lures, they are a way to bring proven spoons or blanks back to fishing status. I believe in NK's from my first go round in this sport and getting good NK blanks in modern patterns was a big deal for me. I am willing to get the custom treatment for them.

    No link has them all but search will find them. Here is a quick recap of what I found. 3rd Annual Fisherman's Flea Market GCBA Sun. March 19th Genesee Charter Boat Association 3rd annual Fisherman's Flea Market, Sunday March 19, 2017, 9AM - 2 PM, Point Pleasant Fire Hall, 55 Ewer Street, Rochester , NY. No early entries. Some proceeds to benefit the salmon pen rearing project. Volunteers needed to help with the pen rearing. Come on down and haggle with the local captains and get some real deals. ELOTSA has one for the Eastern end of Lake Ontario but I think that one already happened.

    Check out the fishing flea markets that are coming up. There is one in Rochester this weekend I believe, great source of older rarer spoons and spoons that can be repainted.

    They all look great. I really like the gold colored on up top.

    Pap, He definitely has a talent either you are born with or not. I am trying to learn to airbrush some of my own spoons and figure I will get good enough to do some simple patterns, like a carbon 14 lol, but Nick will always get some work for me. He simply does incredible work that I know I will never get close to. Any spoon blanks that are rare or proven fish catchers on my boat and need a new paint job will get his paint jobs not my feeble attempts.

    I just had Nick paint some up for me. He does an outstanding job. Right now he doesn't have tape for Mags but he did talk about the possibility of getting some. Irregardless of having tape for the mags the paint jobs more than exceeded my expectations. All spoons in the pictures are NKs except four which are blanks I am experimenting with I got online.
  12. Reminder. Great opportunity to ask some questions from the local captains.

  14. Scott, I agree with you and have not used scents while trolling, but every so often I see the downrigger camera videos people post. I start to wonder when I see fish stalk a bait for quite awhile and the fact that the speed these fish can swim makes our trolling speed a non issue. Maybe they can and do pay attention to scents, heck they can smell there home rivers thousands of miles away. A lot of people run meat because they believe in the natural scent the bait brings. Maybe this year I will do a few experiments and see what catch rates show. Problem is how to do a real good test. You hear people say I put two lures down at the same time and had scent on one and not the other and one out caught the other. Well sometimes I have two lures down that are the exact same with not changes to lead length, depth or anything else and one out catches the other big time. Maybe its the blank, maybe its the micro difference in speed because there position on a turn, who knows but it happens like that with everything seeming the same. Hard to do a good scientific test on this type of thing. Probably becomes a gut thing after running your experiments.
