  1. Angler lands near-record crappie hours after COVID-19 vaccination (msn.com)
  2. Yes, I made the fly and video. I was too busy to dig out my trolling fly box and photograph them, so I posted this!
  3. Just to add to this thread, here is how I tie one of my favorite trolling flies, should anyone care to try their hand at making trolling flies.
  4. Long Time Fisherman, Let me know if you can't find any source of trolling flies. I don't tie them to sell, because I was never fast enough to make any money at it. But I offer them to guys who invite me on their boat.
  5. https://fiddleheadfocus.com/2017/04/25/sports/sh-mainelyoutdoorscol-17-17/ Long Time Fisherman, here is a link that shows the kind of flies I use. I tie my own. You'd have to mail order them from places in Maine or New Hampshire.
  6. Yes I use small spin doctors with New England style tandem hooked trolling flies. Have caught all salmonids that way. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I live in the middle of my village and it's hard to grow anything on my lawn! Deer are voracious, and they know where they're safe during hunting season!
  8. With each video, I'm whittling away at New York's tree species. Our forests are pretty diverse!
  9. I go with the fluorocarbon fuse. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Hello All, Forgive me for the off topic video. But I had a very unusual summer, and, among other things, I got some good aerial shots of the Finger Lakes!
  11. Here's a video somebody did back in 2009 on Keuka.
  12. I put up a video once before showing the tackle, tactics, and you can see me catch one in real time. The only difference between LO and the finger lakes is that in the fingers, cranking the jig really fast back to the boat will get strikes, not so in the big lake. Here's a link:
  13. Hello All, Hasn't been a very fishing- filled year for me. But a good Saturday forecast moved me to invite an old chum along for some Laker Jigging. Steve hadn't caught Lakers that way, and was game to try. Usually I like to scout the fish before inviting people, but I probably won't get that many trips so we chanced it. Luckily, the fish were a short distance from the launch. We set up shop an I quickly landed a nice 33 incher. It took a while for the fish to warm up, but there were plenty under us the whole time. Eventually Steve got a 32 and 33 incher for himself. He was tickled, said they were the biggest he got. Won't be too hard to get him out again!

  14. Hello All, This will be a unique summer for me. I contracted with a helicopter company. We are flying the power lines, marking hazard trees along the right of way. Will take all summer. So I won't get to fish much, but I sure get some breathtaking views of the Finger Lakes!below is the south end of Canandaigua, Bluff Point, and Seneca.
