  1. Too late for this year, but in the late winter when the days are warm and the snow is thin, go for a walk all around your house, any woods within a half mile, they leave tracks when they go tree to tree, they also leave branch clippings on the snow under the tree they are feeding on,mostly from hemlock. It is good exercise and they are out in the sun on warm days, easy to spot.
  2. Very interesting, what where you catching ? steelhead ? landing one for every three sloppy hook sets ? How many lips were you landing ?
  3. I had neck surgery 14 years ago, I waited too long to have the surgery. I ended up with nerve damage which because of the pain gradually reduced my strength. I hated to give up bow hunting, so I purchased a $200 Barnet crossbow two years ago, last year I got my first deer with it.
  4. Did you try back in 120 where you had good luck ? r
  5. Missed your report three weeks ago, how did you do ?
  6. A few years ago I read a thread on the Finger Lakes Section with fishermen complaining about college students intentionally cutting across the stern of trolling fishermen close enough to take out all the lines with their keel. It was a long thread. I suggested fisherman attach an orange float to a grapple hook and 100 ft. of rope trail it when they approach, if they intentionally cut across, reel in what lines you can, when they contact the rope, hit the gas and take their rudder back home with you. The next day a professor replied " don't do that, I will stop them immediately, with all sorts of apologies " I wonder how long the professor had been watching the thread. Do not try the grapple with a larger blow boat.
  7. Wow Oscar ! Nice Musky I didn't think they came this far south. Please share the lure and depth with us. CJ
  8. Good job, about time you had a good day.
  9. Late report, I fished Friday from 5 am to 1 pm, three skippies, had to go past 120 ft. to get temp. on bottom below 59 degrees, had to go past 300 fow to get below 53 degree with probe 130 ft. down, scattered hooks, I hope we get some east wind before my next trip
  10. I will be there this Thurs. thru Sunday give a call and I will pull it out .
  11. I will let you know when it is out, last time I was up it still had a lot of boats in front of it.
