  1. That's a nice bear, Matt. Let us know the weight.
  2. Thanks for posting this DH! I see you're from Lake Luzerne. I'm originally from Lake George area. Do you troll LG?
  3. Loved catching brookies as a child and young adult who grew up in the Adirondacks. Remember to handle these fish gently with wet hands so as not to remove any protective slime.
  4. I find that the lakers taken from Lake Ontario are usually much gamier tasting than those from the finger lakes. I'm from Lake George and these trout taste great and for some reason when caught in deep water, their bladders don't blow up; so they fight better.
  5. I'm real happy with my 7mm08 Weatherby with a 3-9 Nikon scope.
  6. If you still haven't bought a shotgun, I have an Ithaca Featherlite Mag 87 12 gauge with a rifled barrel chambered for 2 3/4" - 3" shells. It has a checkered walnut stock and an Aimpoint 2 power red dot scope.
  7. I went out with Candy earlier this spring and we boated 27 salmon. It was awesome! I have also been out several times with Jammer Charters 585-705-3556 and have had similar results. Jeff always gets on a good bite! Andy Chernoble of Chinook Charters 585-820-8600 is another great captain and a real gentleman. Sam Zucco of Dream Catcher Charters is another successful captain - 585-314-2407. Confused yet?
  8. Great job Ric, Craig and team! You're definitely a force to be wreckonned with!
  9. I just saw this post, while searching online for Diawa SK - 786 rods. I have a set of 6 that I haven't touched in 25 yrs. I don't want to break them up. If you're interested give me a buzz at 585-755-5018
  10. This fish looks very similar to the browns I caught in the Adirondacks in my younger days. The biggest tip-off for me is the square tail. The post by Stinger shows the difference in the tails. The coloration and the shape of the adipose fin say brown trout as well.
  11. If you hold a fish like this for the camera, there's a good chance it won't survive very long after being released.
  12. Home Depot has a waterproofing product in with tile supplies called Red Guard. You can roll it on or brush it - I use a whizzie roller. The stuff is awesome and goes on fast and smooth. Costs about $50 for a gallon.
  13. This constant south wind is killing the inshore fishing that we've come to depend on. I was all over on Wednesday with the same result. I'm heading north tomorrow!
  14. I have 2 older mag 10 electric riggers with swivel bases and an extra boom for sale. $300 takes all. Call Steve at 585-755-5018
