  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. 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


  4. 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!


  5. That is so awesome, thanks for saying that ! Team Rampage had a great tourney, as did Hells Bells, Blue Eyed Lady, Fishin Physician, Ruff Rider, Five more minutes obviously and Chasin Tail with the 1 k a day win :yes:

    I had a talk with Justin as we motored in about pulling fish out of the box at weigh in. I told him if you think you moved up, start with the small fish first and let them have hope. If you think you got beat, start with the biggest fish and let them sweat :rofl::rofl:

    I agree 100%, gotta LOVE tourney fishing and he just read your post and LOVED it !!

  7. 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!
