  1. No sharks....no deal!!!............J/K GLWS Nice rig for someone.
  2. Welcome. Very cool to see their environment up close and personal.
  3. Nuts for sure!
  4. They are nice downrigger reels. GLWS
  5. Great Atlantic no matter. I'm going to say 16/17 lbs I caught one back in 2010 that was 32" long with about an18" girth. It weighed 20# 6 oz
  6. A coho will have a white mouth and more colors of the rainbow above the lateral line. They can look like dark steelhead at times. The Atlantic is more brownish in color. Kings are dark green to black. When I caught this Atlantic I pretty much knew what it was, but another fisherman back at Wright's Landing in Oswego insisted it was a brown trout. He had a big rig all decked out and I thought well maybe he's right. It looked like he's been around awhile. I still had my doubts about it being a brown though. To be sure I wasn't losing it I went to Fat Nancy's who had a shop in town at the time. When my friend Captain Andy Bliss took one look at the fish in the well he knew right away. My first thoughts were definitely confirmed.
  7. True Al. The length of the mouth stops at the end of the eye while it goes beyond the eye on a brown trout.
  8. The caudal before the tail is thinner on the Atlantic Black spots on the gill plates on the Atlantic X shaped spots on the Atlantic My friend Mary with a beautiful Atlantic
  9. Interesting history of this road. I was told that it was built to accommodate trucks of WWII POW's. No mention of that here although Fort Niagara was a POW camp. The deterioration of the road is mentioned in the Wiki. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Ontario_State_Parkway
  10. I drove that NASTY road some time ago. Incredible to think they let it deteriorate the way it has.
  11. Stealth without all the commotion of an all out assault. Less is more.
  12. You made lemonade out of the lemons. Congrats on your finish. That's not too shabby.
  13. I turn the bilge pump on and the FF goes off. I think they are all connected to the same fuse box. I'm going to put it on its own battery if I can't figure it out.
