  1. I've been told the buoy only measures the crest of the wave height, not the trough on the downside waiting for the next wave. Good rule of thumb is to double it. 0.5 on the buoy = 1 footers, 1.0 = 2 footers, etc etc. It's always worked well for me and definitely saved me gas and sleepless nights to check it before venturing out in a realitvely small craft ( 22 foot). Another thing to consider is that buoy is 20+ miles offshore so sometimes the best option is to still just make the run to check yourself. Might need 2 and 3 footers out that far on a southernly wind
  2. I have an islander 221, definely stern heavy is a common issue in alum boats, I put 200 lbs of tube sand as far up into the nose as I could get them and it has helped tremendously getting the nose down thus helping the steering and how it tracks. May just need to adjust the weight to whatever works for you, hope this helps!
  3. Rippin line is my best friend. Just having a little fun lol
  4. Will you take $40 cash?
  5. So that's what you're feeding them! Secret bait everybody!
  6. Back in my younger days canal fishing we used to put the liver in left over egg sac mesh for catfish. Stayed on the hook that way
  7. Sold / Closed

    Sad to see set n ready go, man the good times we've had on that rig!
  8. Les, I was just using my WeatherBug app, it did say gusts over 40, I'm thinking maybe it was a lull when I checked, can't ever really trust a cell phone app I guess!
  9. I checked the south end webcam this moring and it seems to be out of commission for the time being. Trident marine now has a webcam, it dosent face the main lake basin from what I can tell but is another tool to use. What was ice on Saturday is now wide open. When I checked the weather at about one am for honeye (night owl with my work schedule) it was 18 degrees with a wsw wind around 15 mph, almost exactly how it is right now. Looks like cold weather for the next two weeks. If the wind lays down for 2 or 3 days of highs in the teens and lows near single digits the lake should lock in to the point wind isn't really a factor. My guess is two weeks we might be on honeoye somewhere. Until then guess I will just have to ride north or go jig lakers on the big fingers. Here's the link to the webcam, tight lines and stay dry all! http://weather.weatherbug.com/cameras/weather/HNYTD
  10. I have a humminbird ice 35, this will be my (hopefully) third season fishing it and I love it. It's pretty bare bones as far as gadgets, just a basic flasher unit but it has great battery life and plenty of power with a big and bright display. Jigged lake trout for the past two winters in 100+ fow and it had plenty of range to get down that deep with a larger profile bait like a tube jig, I believe they retail around 290 to 300 bucks. Worth a look anyhow, best of luck!
  11. Yes for sure,islander invasion! I'll actually get to leave mine next year. Getting a new transom put in this next week. You know what they say boat stands for. Break Out Another Thousand!

  14. As stated above this was the toughest derby I've ever fished. We went 5 for 7 on cookie cutter Lakers Saturday, Sunday just 3 for 5 same deal fishing the north end. Saturday we got a late start, a flat tire on the boat trailer in the staging lot on the north end is never a good way to kick things off! Sunday got the early start, Long story short. Came by the pump house in 35 fow, I had literally just turned away from that rigger and walked to the helm to grab a spoon I had set out for a lead core when I heard the tell tale splash and slap of very large very pissed off cartwheeling something. So I ran to the rigger and cranked like a mad man. Had it on maybe 15 seconds flipped 2 more times, charged the back deck and shook the spoon. Conseritave estimate of a 7+ pound rainbow. That one will haunt me a while. As with everyone else I threw the kitchen sink at them, even tried my old standby of pulling wire. Back to the big lake for me next weekend to start pre fishing for the upcoming atomik challenges and sodus pro am. Tight lines to all!
  15. I Won't be able to defend last year's crown. Started a new job at work. Always seems to get in the way of my fishing time! Good luck gents and gals!
