  1. Any opinions on NAP crossbow. I haven't had any problems with them so far. No O rings to mess around with and a nice hard bone penetrating point.
  2. The fishing has gone downhill in Canandaigua compared to as little as four years ago. The guys that know the lake still catch perch, but not the numbers and size. The over harvesting must have taken place then. I would see well over 50 boats there every trip in the fall. Now a days, its just you and me and two other guys.
  3. The best winter prediction will be in May. Then everyone can look back and say they were right
  4. Jeez scot, I paid more for the same shed a few yrs ago. I am going to buy a clam legend xl thermal. I also bought the same millennium chair Keith’s has to replace their chair.
  5. I am officially looking for replacement fishing partners.
  6. Great idea. Ill chill at Kentucky fried while you two freeze your wet buts off. You can pick me up later.
  7. Is it still available?. I am looking to buy one. thanks.
  8. What I mean is that I would like any hp either a 4 or a 5 or a 6. A few companies make all four. I did "scroll down". Only two this month and both were two stroke. Maybe I missed some.
  9. Looking to buy a 4,5,6, four stroke. Let me know if you or anyone you know has one they would like to get rid of. Thanks

    I Bay

    I had 74 deg last wednesday. No lake run perch, just local resident population of small ones. Maybe with this weather, they will be there.

    Erie

    They were still out there today. Stupid easy fishing. Too bad the weather looks bad for the rest of the week, but these fish should still be here all of September.

    Erie

    All I can say is wow! If you have never been to Erie, make it a point to go. Anywhere between Sturgeon and Barcelona has been loaded with eyes. We got our 6th limit in a row today for four people by noon. Simply amazing.
  13. Those eyes are a lot fatter than Erie eyes. Nice catch.
  14. Located in Rochester and we can negotiate.
  15. I have an almost brand new 13" 175X80 D load range C tire mounted on a one year old galvanized wheel for sale. I just recently used it as a spare to drive only 40 miles after getting a blow out on the Thruway. This is a Bias ply tire and I do not want to use it because all my other tires are radial. The price is $70. Thanks for looking.

    Perch

    Whatever they want for a spot lock, buy it! Made a big difference in my perch fishing both in Erie and the finger lakes.

    Perch

    I talked to the launch guy at Hanover launch at the Cat on Monday. He said that last week, a couple of guys came in with 96 perch but the guys next to them had 16. I have heard of a few others that have hit them off the Cat a few weeks ago and saw people set up on the perch beds in 55' straight out when I came in. In my opinion, I think they were around because of the cold water upwelling in that area last week that drove the bait in followed by the perch. I did mark schools of something on the bottom in 75-80' but all the eyes I caught out there were spitting up smelt. I think those bottom fish were probably smelt and not perch. Good luck if you try and let us know.

    Erie

    Erie is simply amazing this year. another two man limit in less than two hours. We were out of the Cat in 70+ . Harnesses out 5 and wire dipsey setting 3, 90' back did the trick.

    Erie

    Great day out of buffalo today. Everyone had fish and we boxed out. From 40’ out to the fence. Lead core and harnesses worked the best.
  20. I have a slightly smaller boat and fish both lakes. The time of year you are talking about is generally good for both and you should average about four or five fishable days a week on both lakes. If you want walleyes, NymphO is right on. I might add that you do not have to go to Barcelona to get them. There are a few state parks along the Erie shore for camping around the Cat and the fishing there is pretty good. If you do get a blow off day on Erie, you can take a short ride to the Niagara and catch bass or just visit the falls.

    Erie

    Two really great catches I need your neighbor to take me out too😊
  22. I bet Miller and the boys sitting out in front of the bait shop will be impressed.
  23. I used everything except Kansan. At $45 you are not getting anything special. Nanofill and power pro have similar diameters for their pound test. My fingerlakes line is nanofill. I fish perch in clear water and need to cast as far as possible. The problem is wind knots. Just going to happen. For blade baits in Oneida, I’ll use power pro or fire line. 10 lb seaguar leader. Works great for laker jigging too.
  24. I am not going to offer a solution because I don't know what you are doing exactly on your boat. All I can say is that I "play" around with the exact same boards on Erie this time of year. I did manage to get them out around the 50' mark with four colors on them last Friday. I don't thing putting the pin in is the problem because the first time I set them, I forgot to put the pin in on the starboard side and did not notice a difference. Maybe you should ask on LEU or walleye central. A lot of guys in the western basin use them all the time. As for me, as soon as the eyes move a little deeper, I'll salmon fish for them using the riggers and dipseys. Just a whole lot easier and, I think, more effective.
