  1. I haven't seen any scrape activity yet this year in the usual spots. A couple scrub bucks are still hanging around together and nobody is harassing does yet. Did see one nice one tonight that hasn't been seen yet this year with the other deer though. He wasn't interested in any of the other deer either, just feeding in the field. A few of the deer are still in summer coats. Hopefully it picks up in the next couple weeks.
  2. Maybe Miss Em will chime in?? I'd be interested in a review of Penns also.
  3. Vic and family, sorry to hear the sad news. You and your family are in our prayers. Let me know if you need anything.
  4. I have an old Vex FL8. When I was looking to replace it I talked to some of my buddies about their flashers (Vex and Marcum). Pretty much, they seemed equally made/reliable but I think the battery life differed between the two so keep that in mind. I don't think you can go wrong with any of the three brands though. I was leaning toward the Vex FL-18 but don't ice-fish enough to justify the purchase anymore.
  5. Just a word of caution, don't waste that amount of money on the black and gold Accudepth. The gray ones, Accudepth Plus are worth the money. From my shopping, Dicks is expensive for trolling rods and reels. Gander and BPS are cheaper.
  6. Great pics. I need to get some new cameras. I had a 35mm that I used a lot but it just died in storage. My g/f's dad keeps his 3 cameras out all year long and gets some great pics too. He also sits in his stands every weekend and videos too. The fawns can really put on a show with the video running.
  7. Do you put bait in front of you cameras? Pretty cool getting a pic of an owl.
  8. Seems like this was a loaded question... How's Saturday morning sound? I'll bring the dogs.
  9. I gotta say a yote. Way too big to be a gray fox and not colored anything like the red in the second pic. Plus I guess it's about 30 pounds. We kill about 80 a year in front of the dogs.
  10. I guess you've had a few tough weekends. Fishing can only be better next year, right?
  11. Out of the package most should have only swivel at the front with the welded ring which goes to the rod, the swivel/snap/pigtail goes to the lure/bait/fly.
  12. The regulation is no more than two rods per person all the time. This is directly from the link above. Angling means taking fish by hook and line. This includes bait and fly fishing, casting, trolling and the use of landing nets to complete the catch. Anglers must be in immediate attendance when their lines are in the water. An angler may operate no more than two lines with or without a rod, and each line is limited to not more than five lures or baits or a combination of both, and in addition, each line shall not exceed fifteen hook points in any combination of single, double or treble hooks. Good Luck,
  13. Sushi flies have been productive for me. Haven't ran whole or cut bait yet though.
  14. The additional keels come half the weight of the initial keel according to Big Jon. Does the extra weight cause them to dive? Does anyone else do this? Keep the advice coming, I appreciate it.
  15. Rick, That's probably my problem. I did the 9 and 14 that the directions stated. I was really hoping that these run better after changing some things. Bill, I think the homemade board did flip and the towline got in the prop. I heard the motor bog down and Todd said "hey, the board is behind the boat". I didn't really put 2 and 2 together until I pulled the grabline to retrieve the board because it wasn't running good. We circled and looked for it but never saw it again. I was planning on upgrading for next season but this moved things faster.
  16. The boat is in I-bay. I just sent him a text for you letting him know you're trying to contact him.
  17. Just thought I'd post some pics from this season so far. A couple are from Olcott, the rest are from Port Bay and Oswego.
  18. Or Oswego County Tourism website if you're open to this end of the Lake. http://www.visitoswegocounty.com/tn/FishingHunting/Fishing/lakecharters.aspx#ontario
  19. I called Big Jon directly and ordered them just last week. $25 a piece plus shipping. So far I was not very pleased at all on Saturday with the Otter boat with one keel. My homemades pull better so far. I really hope the second keel is an improvement. I followed the directions and measured the lengths for the knot and it would barely pull the 300 copper out of the chute in 2 footers.
  20. We had a similar case of the drops out of Port Bay on Saturday also. Way to go on the Leader Board.
  21. I think the Great Lakes Planer reels are metal. They have a longer handle that folds also. I don't know if they do custom colors though. I was looking at them at St. Peters.
  22. The required sea service is 360 DAYS total since you were 15 years old 90 of which must be in the last 3 years. A day consists of 4 hours or more underway, no more than one "day" in 24 hours. 90 days of which must be on the Great Lakes for the Great Lakes endorsement. As Landshark said, the form is easy. If you are using time from your own boat, you need to provide proof you owned it during the timeframe you claim your sea service in. If your time was on another boat, you need to have the owner of the other boat sign the form and provide proof that they owned it during that time. NYS boat registration is adequate proof of ownership either way. http://www.uscg.mil/nmc/forms/application/cg719s.pdf
  23. It was great to have him along. 4 of the hits came on the Chicita banana echip and crazy b fly on the wire deeper diver on a 3 out 240 feet. If anyone on the North shore finds a faded orange homemade board, call me and I'll send you the other side. It's the perfect reason to upgrade from the homemade boards although it was a hassle and unexpected.
