  1. We fished the derby, it was the first derby for me in almost 2 yrs (after having all my equipment stolen) but with some help from some great people here I am back fishing. we got a late start sat but setup on the fish right in the middle of the lake north of mile point. caught abunch of 5 to 7 lbs and lost a few ended up with one that weighed 11.5 on our digtal on the boat but when we finally went in and weighed it at end of day it was only 10.13 or 14 anyways we took second and had a great weekend. the sad thing is that the most productive fly we had we lost and it was one that Jim or (JD) on here made for me Thank You Jim.


  2. I am having the same problem with a set of marlins i bought last year? and i think it has something to do with the ion and or short stop control. I did find a ground wire that was loose and put a new crimp on it but have yet to see how long it will work? if you find out something before i do please let me know. i have been trying cannon for info but they want me to take it to repair place?


  3. I just bought 2 of the Z-Wings and they were the larger of the 2 they make and it does a better job then my 10# do. there are 3 settings on them and i used the middle one and at 2.5 mph there wasnt really any blow back. BUT you better have a strong motor and good cable because they really come up hard. I also drilled a hole on the back in the center of the Z-Wing to hook on a release. I guess they wanted you to use a release that is attached to the cable above the Z-Wing but the hole worked fine on mine. Good Luck


  4. If you go 1.3 miles south of the country club on the west side you will see a very small house at water level but just keep your eye on milage in 70' of water you will find a sunken ferry boat very large one which i have actully got my anchor stuck on and pull a piece up. we have always caught alot of perch at that spot and sometimes you will catch a bow or brown there using perch minnows. Good Luck


  5. I hear that Cornell wants to add to the sytem they already have? I think that is a bad idea, I have lived and fished on that lake all my life and I do see a change at the south end of the lake. I dont know if its from mussels or the cooling system or the sewage systems at that end but they need to stop and think about before increasing that cooling system.


  6. I am very very moved by all your offers and find it very hard to put it in words, I mean you guys dont even know me and yet you reach out like this. Its amazing and God Bless Ya All. - Gambler, every spring I would call my insurance company and make sure I was covered and did this for 15 yrs but when came time to make a claim they said I wasnt covered. Because my boat was not trailable so I needed a special ryder. I was sick about it but I knew there was nothing I could do. I have replaced some of the major stuff like downriggers and a graph but after that big layout (EVEN USED THEY ARE EXPENSIVE) Now I am looking for lures and anything else I can find?. I didnt realize what I had until I lost it? after 30 yrs of collecting lures and all the other little things, like dipsys, flashers, well you all know what i mean, to me it was not replaceable, but anyways thank you again, and I will email you or PM asap GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!


  7. Last year my boat was broken into and I was cleaned out!!! The damn thieves took everything, and my insurance company wouldnt cover any of it!! 30 yrs of collecting GONE. I am looking to buy a couple dipsy rods and all kinds of lures for trout and salmon fishing. I am looking for used stuff only please I cannot afford new stuff right now but would like to fish again so if anyone has some lures or rods that they would like to sell cheap that would be great. Thank You Dennis


  8. I cant believe ya got Barney in a pic, he is a very close friend of mine, he is a pretty good pool player too. I relly miss his bait biz. I visit with him almost everyday during the summer I keep my boat ar fingerlakes marina I hope to meet you guys sometime, i have lost my fishing partner 2 years ago, the damn fool had to get old and die on me. Dennis


  9. I have thought about getting into some of these Tournaments before but i could never find the time nor crew to do it. I would be interested in either joining a crew or finding one. Its all about sharing the cost and being compatable and having fun doing it. If there are others in the same situation please let me know thanks dennis


  10. My name is Dennis, My Boat goes by Y-Knot- 30' Luhrs Sportfisher and I do alot of fishing mostly in Cayuga Lake, but on Ontario 1 or 2 times a yr and this winter down in the keys. I noticed you had the fingerlakes on here and that really hooked me. I was born and raised on Cayuga Lake and fished most of the fingerlakes. I live on my boat in the summer and home port is fingerlakes marina, lansing ny. When gas prices made since i would take my boat to oswego ny which was always a beautiful ride about 11 hrs by boat and fished up there for a couple weeks, that didnt happen this yr. well anyways I am glad to be here and hope to read some good reports and see some great pics as well as chat with other fishermen.

    Thank You Dennis
