  1. The entire lake shore still covered in ice. Be patient The Fishin' Physician Assistant Fishsodusbay.com
  2. I've had plenty of Lakers go down with plenty of vigor, if caught in 100 fow or less, or if properly burped and put in head first like gambler says, even in much deeper water. Hold them next to the boat to revive and let go when they are strong if you aren't sure The Fishin' Physician Assistant Fishsodusbay.com
  3. Oops
  4. I get 1-2 per year. Represents about 1% of my catch... The Fishin' Physician Assistant Fishsodusbay.com
  5. I used to target steelies cause I love fishing top water and I love their acrobatics, but last year the fishing was just awful for them in May/June... The Fishin' Physician Assistant Fishsodusbay.com
  6. I only mentioned the emphasis on kings to display that they don't seem to have the angle that many accuse them of having- that they favor lakers cause they are paid for by the Feds. They seem to recognize the financial importance of kings, and made a concerted effort this year to tell us that. In many other states (Michigan specifically) this does not appear to be the case. It was refreshing. I came out of the meeting pretty optimistic honestly. Those guys are doing good work and are very transparent it seems The Fishin' Physician Assistant Fishsodusbay.com
  7. There is some really awesome collaboration. I also liked to hear both omrnf and our dec stress the importance of kings specifically. I am optimistic about this year's class of alewife, given the warm summer and mild winter The Fishin' Physician Assistant Fishsodusbay.com
  8. Really informative meeting. A lot of interesting stuff being done by the Canadians in particular The Fishin' Physician Assistant Fishsodusbay.com
  9. Do you suppose they knew about this, even before the king cuts were finalized???? I sure hope not The Fishin' Physician Assistant Fishsodusbay.com
  10. Looking forward to it! The Fishin' Physician Assistant Fishsodusbay.com
  11. I aim for first of April. But if any hint of temp below 28-29 in the forecast, I will think twice. I have pure inboards and cracking the block just plain isn't worth it. The Fishin' Physician Assistant Fishsodusbay.com
  12. I would love this info as well. Love hi tech spoons, can never find them! The Fishin' Physician Assistant Fishsodusbay.com
  13. May near the salmon river, you can expect to catch Browns, lakers and steel. May CAN be a good time for salmon, but it's a bit hit and miss. A good time of year to fish lake wide honestly. If you desire salmon, you gotta consider the west end though The Fishin' Physician Assistant Fishsodusbay.com
  14. In April in Sodus, we will usually find lakers 30-100 fow. I just slowly troll out till I find them. They can be suspended or tight to bottom The Fishin' Physician Assistant Fishsodusbay.com
  15. I once caught an 80 lb amberjack in the keys off a wreck... I got that big bastard in, and the captain asked if I wanted to catch another... I said "hell no, I need a nap!" The Fishin' Physician Assistant Fishsodusbay.com
