  4. all great ideas,I'll run them by my fishing partner.
  5. I usually take them with me when I troll,I run 3 inlines on either side of the boat.We have struggled with fish on the boards.They would like to use their own rods,and I thought riggers would be the easiest way to get them hooked up on their own.
  6. I guess I should clarify.We would not be fishing lake o,we will be on smaller lakes,mostly for walleye and bass.
  7. its a matter of grandkids and others(wife) prefering to use spinning gear,
  8. wanting to run spin rods for riggers,any suggestions on line type(braid,floro,mono) and why?
  9. I feel compelled to respond to Zach's above post.First let me say that I have been buying fishing licenses,boat reg,fishing tackle,taxes, surcharges and fees in N.Y. for over 40yrs.It was some of my money that went into the development and rearing and stocking of these tigers in NY. for the enjoyment of all.We all agree that fishing is a great sport and should be regulated to assure it's future. the size limit on Otisco has already been increased to recognize the "Trophy fishermen".These fish belong to all of us,if it is legal to take and use a fish of a certain size why not? We own them.If someone wants to release their fish it's their choice.There are many people who have no boat,or have very limited time to fish or just want to take someone fishing who doesn't normally fish,it's not easy to tell someone who just caught a 35"fish "it has to go back".MuskysAnonymous, is spot on with his post I thank you sir for your insight. Secondly let me say that I fish with Justin once and awhile and I can assure you that if that fish showed any sign of survival it would have been released.That was my son and grandson fishing with us Sat.I have 4 grandchildren and we're all lucky enough to fish together once in a while,some people don't have that chance.I made a promise to myself that I would mount a fish caught with each of my grandchildren,no matter the size(legal of course)or the species so that we may remember our time together fishing not watchin tv. As for Zach,I really wish you could have seen this post for what it was intended.I have to say that if we were face to face and we shared some pics and your response was the same as above,,, well I won't go there. Sorry everyone for the venting,but I just couldn't ignore it.
  10. I'm not much of a picture taker,but I can tell you that if I were on the water hanging perch minnows with my grandkids in april,and they chanced to hook up a walleye with any size,,,the picture would be taken and the fish released.

    They're in the pond at Fair Haven state park..the bite was good all week,even during daylight hours.
  12. Justin, First let me say that I thank you as well,I had a lot of fun fishing with you and learned a great deal about new tactics and gear.My reward,or better yet my enjoyment comes from watching and helping people enjoy the sport we love.I have been lucky enough to have caught quite a few fish through the years and now I would rather see others enjoy catching as well. While I know how frustrated you were with this past season, It was actually a pretty good year considering the conditions.I enjoyed every trip,(well maybe a couple were a little rough LOL)and look forward to more (besides fishing with you keeps my boat clean).I had a great time with everyone I fished with,(who the hell was that Matt guy????)

    cold front

    well it looks like we'll be fishing a cold front this weekend,(like things couldn't get much slower)I was wondering if anybody has any special tactics for front fishing,maybe a special lure or presentation that has worked for them,I'll probably slow jig the points with a bucktail with some meat on it.
  15. Well Justin,for your sake I hope your right,,,,but I'm hoping he starts at the south end and puts my dock in first,,,,but If I have to I may just park next to you for a wekk or so,lol...
  16. shouldn't be a problem getting on otisco by then,although i have only seen otisco socked in so tight with ice once, long ago.I camp at the campgrounds and hope my dock is in this year..
