    Smart Troll is probably the device your looking for.

    So those deeper in the the know with the DEC and a better understanding of the bait fish situation , I am looking at you Jerry Felluca and friends, when should we be starting to get worried with the prolonged nasty cold snap?
  3. Glad to hear you are recovering from you shop problems Nick. Your paint jobs did very well for me last year and can't wait to get some more from you.
  4. 2018 LOTSA Salmon School

    Pap, Yeah this is the big show at the Niagara Falls convention center. Lots of vendor and lots of seminars. The have like 10 rooms they have seminars. Each room has a series of seminars for a certain type of activity. One rooom may have different seminars on stream fishingwith ea h one being an hour or two. The next room may be open lake, the next is walleye. Most of these are free with admission. But the salmon school, the How to better use your electronics and walleye carry an extra charge over admission. Great show, well managed!

    Depends on your definition of novice. They are not going to teach you how to use downriggers, planer board or dipseys or your electronics. They expect you to know the mechanics. What they will teach is where to look for the fish during different seasons and weather conditions. What lure selections based on conditions, light brightness, and bait available. They will teach you tricks to up your catch. Honestly this is a must class for just about everyone including beginners. Just don’t ask the super beginner questions like how do I place my line in a release during the class. Otherwise this will help your learning curve.
  6. Good to know. I would have figured plastic would be preferred from a corrosion standpoint but what you said makes sense, especially in light of the recall. Of course my boats asleep in storage so this might be a springtime check for me.
  7. Time to check your fire extinguishers on your boat for recall DETROIT (AP) - More than 40 million fire extinguishers in the U.S. and Canada because they might not work in an emergency. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says on its website that it's aware of one death because of a problem with extinguishers made by Kidde. In 2014, extinguishers didn't work for emergency responders who were trying to fight a car fire after a crash. The recall covers 134 models of push-button and plastic-handle extinguishers made from 1973 through Aug. 15 of this year. The government says the extinguishers can become clogged. Also, the nozzle can come off and pose an injury hazard. Owners should contact Kidde to ask for a replacement and for instructions on how to return recalled models. Kidde can be reached at (855) 271-0773 or at www.kidde.com.

    Got the call this morning, happy for him and just hoping everything goes smooth and he has a uneventful recovery. Be great to see him at the shop again next summer on a daily basis.
  9. 2018 Stocking levels

    I could be wrong but from what I heard last night I get the idea the cuts will more or less stay until they get rid of the wholes in the year classes. They didn't say that in anyway but it just the feeling I get from the answer as to what would it take to start reducing the 20 percent cut.
  10. Finally!

    Nice fish Dan, Congrats on breaking that 30 pound barrier.
  11. I keep two knifes on the boat and a sharpener. Dexter Russell S138PCP Sani-Safe Wide 8" Fillet Knife Update International KP-10 High Carbon Stainless Steel Cimeter Knife, 10-Inch At the time both together cost under $35 on Amazon and have held up really well and between them handle all the different size fish we decide to keep.
  12. Acorns

    My boat is docked right under a tree that is having a very prolific year. First ten minutes at the dock is getting them the hell off the boat. Last thing I need is to go running for a rod and find myself in a three stooges comedy.
  13. Next generation showing how it's done. Great job!
  14. Harbor fish cleaning

    I would have to disagree about the matures dying from catch and release. The Canadians have presented at the State of the Lake their tagging program where they go out with fisherman who catch the fish, they do a number of measurements and place a tag on the fish. Most of these fishes tags are recovered and usually a pretty good distance away from the catch area. And while not all fish were mature some were. So that would lead me to believe they recovered and do recover when handled and released correctly.
  15. Nice going Eric! know what was coming that was a brave call. glad it worked out.
