  1. I have fished the St. Lawrence for the past 5 years. We catch walleyes in 35 to 70 feet of water with jigging spoons and worm harneses after dark. These walleyes are just full of gobies. The last 3 years I have dragged a gobie on a 3 way swivel rig, with and without spinners and have never had a touch, while catching fish on spoons and worms. It's just strange. Walleyes are a weird creature.
  2. JTT you are right on with what you are saying. A friend of mine ran the walleye program for the state for years and said the reason the walleyes are the size they are in Oneida is there is very little food for them for the first 4 to 5 months of the year. This makes them easier to catch but retards their growth. He says the gobies will increase their growth rate but make them harder to catch. Schwartz, your drift sock must be laying on the bottom right next to mine, it might be too rough to fish if you break the rope to your drift sock!
  3. Future looks good for Oneida Fished Oneida 6/16, 17 and 18. Caught 13 on the 16th and 17th with only 5 keepers each day. Most of the shorts between 14 and 14 3/4 inches. Other age classes mixed in. Blue/chrome #9 jigging raps did most of the damage in 31 to 34 feet of water, clown was good too. Fishing slow on Sunday for us. I did catch my personal best Oneida walleye @ 24 inches and a fenwick rod with a shimano reel, not in the lake long, cleaned up nice. Good fathers day! Thinking those 14 to 15 inch shorts should be legal soon!
  4. Deep Bait Recently there has been talk of guys seeing big schools of bait and fish near the bottom in 200 plus feet of water. Could these be the deep water ciscoes the feds stocked a few years ago? Has anyone dropped down 200 plus after these fish? They have been fishing 250 plus in Michigan for a while now but I don't have the gear to do it.
  5. Thanks for the info., had read about the problems at FLT. Too bad, great spoons.
  6. FLT black meat pounding deep Can't seem to find these spoons anywhere. So I am going to try to replicate some. Cannot seem to find a good description of one. Does this spoon have a sliver or glow back and is the front black or dark metallic green? Any help would be appreciated.
  7. There is a gun cleaner/ lubricant called G96. I would occasionally have problems with my autoloaders (Remington 1100,1187, Beretta extrema) Since using G96 never a problem. January field hunting and diver hunting on the fingerlakes, never a problem. Try it. You will like it.
  8. Fished the Oak for the first time 7/16. Was a bit bumpy but managed our limit with 3 teenagers, 1 mature, 1 steelhead and a coho. Spoons did the damage with ssw and 42nd being best. Took 3 fish on sliders. Released a bunch of shakers and a 24 inch atlantic. Had a blast.
  9. Great job getting the kids out. Get them started young and they will enjoy a lifetime of memories, and sleep deprivation.
  10. Just picked up the required licenses for my 17 year old son and myself for the upcoming hunting,trapping and fishing season. Grand total of $284. Same licenses in Alaska would cost us 174 as AK residents. Got to love NY. They wonder why participation is down.
  11. Where are the mature kings? Most of the pictures I've seen of fish this last week have been next years fish.
  12. If a fish does not have an adipose fin it means it is a stocked fish, adipose fin=wild fish, no fin= stocked fish. Does not matter, still a fish of a life time.
  13. That means we would have caught a lot of small matures (8 to 10 pound) in 2013 because that is the size 2 year olds should be if they run, jacks. Looking back at my pictures from 2013, there were no mature fish in my catch that size. I don't think they have any idea what is going on out there and instead of saying that they make stuff up.
  14. Headed out early, started in 100, no fish or bait on sonar. Lost a small king behind the boat rocket behind a 11 inch white flasher down 90 then nothing for 2 hours. Could only fish til 11:00 so we slipped in to 80 to 100 and picked at the browns, silver back glow frog was the hot spoon, even took a 4 pound smallie 80 feet down on this spoon. NO bait. Where is the bait? This time of year the kings are still on the feed and with the lack of bait it did not surprise me there were no kings around.
  15. Good Luck down there. By the way did you go to Brockport State in the late 80's?
