  1. Had a blast as always, just wished my keeper-sized fish wasn't from 3 Mile Island!
  2. Dropped kids at inlaws, got out around 1:30 pm. Put in @ North launch ( very close to home ). Went dowmn on West side, worming away anywhere from 1 to 3 ft. off bottom in 15 - 25 fow. Hooked a bunch of little gills, kept moving. Put a Gulp Alive minnow on the 2 ft. up hook, nailed a 3 lb., 5 oz. Smallie. Biggest on the new boat so far. A bit further South, birthday girl hooks a 2 lb., 11 oz. Largemouth. Only had a 2 hour window for the trip, so called it quits and headed home. All that mattered is wife had a good time ( and I caught the bigger fish! Ha ha ha - glad she doesnt read LOU!!!) [ Post made via Android ]
  3. Had sonar, very few marks showing all day. Fishing was very slow that day. Hitting Hemlock again tomorrow with the wife, she actually wants to go fishing for her birthday! (Probably because her mother is going to watch the little ones for us, and she will actually be able to keep a rod in the water for more than 15 seconds without a child trying to go into the lake!)
  4. DAMN!!! Give me a shout some weekend if you want to head out.
  5. In 20 +/- FOW, dropped a large yellow Foxee jig tipped with a little crawler, down within 1 foot of the bottom. Bounce, bounce, WHAM! Measured probably around 13" +/-. Unfortunately, not much to tell, and as I said, he was alone.
  6. Very late start @900 am, but got out by myself to finally give the new ride a try. Trolled from N. launch to a couple miles down with riggers @ 45 & 55 ft. over 70 ft. Nada. Really a shakedown cruise to see what needs changed or modified on boat, no big deal. Fid get personal brst perch on West side in 25 fow, but he was alone....... Cant wait to get rest of boat rigged up so I can hit it hard this summer. [ Post made via Android ]
  7. If just catching fish is the goal, either head to North end of lake @the park and fish in 5 ft. of water off the levy, or drive out 5 & 20 to the West and fish for pannies at the DEC offices. Either spot, worms, bobbers will keep kids busy. [ Post made via Android ]
  8. But fishing with Mike will get you all sorts of floating "goodies" out there. I remember a large bumper, really big plastic flower pot, and at least 20 pound mass of grass on our various trips.
  9. If you are heading out some weekend morning and want a little company, shoot me a PM. I live 5 minutes from the North launch and can bring a few rods if needed.
  10. Anyone been to the inlet to see if the Walleyes and/or Pike are running up there yet? I would like to take my 3 year old to see them, but don't want to waste the trip if they are not there yet. Thanks!
  11. Had 2 nice browns with a small golden Phoebe while casting from shore 2 weeks ago, south end near the canoe launch.
  12. Nice! I have had some success casting from that dock, before I met FLXTroutman and started catching lakers from his boat. Also, I found that a slip bobber with a big shiner down about 15' or so, on a fluorocarbon leader of 2 - 3 feet length works pretty good in mid-March. Caught some nice, eater-sized Browns there .
  13. Anyone help a brother out? $ 500.00 cash.
  14. MOTIVATED TO SELL!!! Make an OFFER!!
  15. Try Captain Andy at Broad Horizons Charter. He is on the board as BroadHorizons.
  16. Nice. Do I need to buy a new wire dipsey rod/reel or was it one of yours?
  17. Nice fish, Tom!! GIve me a shout some time if you want a little extra company on Hemlock! I'll turn the phone off for the trip!!
  18. Mike, Thanks again for the great trip! My personal best 'bow, actually the first legal Rainbow ever in New York!! Next year, I hope to have the ability to get out on my new lake (Hemlock) other than in the Otter Stealth duck boat, and trips will be on me over here!! tcon: Nice meeting you and Dustin. Great to see a kid who likes to fish (and sleep ) I hope to keep Maxon intetested in the outdoors like that! Give me a shout sometime, now that we know we are almost neighbors, let's go fish!!!
