  1. Pike Hunter - Is this still available?
  2. Still available. I could pick up tomorrow - 4/28/17
  3. The smiles on the little ones faces say it all. Nice Job
  4. Nice job - Thanks for the report. Are the docks in at the Ramps yet?
  5. Niagara Fishing Show Attended the show over this past weekend and took in the Salmon School again this year. Great presentations and a great show. If your into fishing and want to see the latest and greatest tackle and learn form some regional fishing experts, you need to attend this show in 2018. Another successful year and show put on by our LOTSA community and others. Great job to all and Tight Lines when you can. Stay safe out there.
  6. My order took almost two months to receive. Great product but the unprofessional business responses are definitely not good for any business. They would be better off taking down their website.
  7. Thanks everyone for the comments. At least I'm not the only one losing my mind trying to keep the fleas from collecting. Safe Fishing and Best of Luck out there.
  8. Just curious as to what some guys are using for their main line on their downrigger and side planner poles. I have recently been using 30lb test and then running a 10-12ft Fluorocarbon Leader in either 12 or 15lb test. Used the 30lb to try and limit the flea build-up. I've been thinking of backing off to at least 20lb test but was just curious what others may be having luck with. Hope to here some options.
  9. This time of year, I would work back and forth (East & West) across the bar / drop off at the south end of the lake. Small spoons off riggers or you could get into a small Seth Green set-up. In either case, if you don't have either, you can work with flat lines but give them some weight to get them down to 10-12ft. You can also work the shore lines, but I find the west side usually produces better. As the year progresses, you will need to work much deeper and sometimes bumping bottom to stir up the lakers, so to speak. Side Planers with stick baits work well as long as you get them back a ways. (80' - 120') Ideally, you should have some type of depth recorder, but that being said, I have fished the lake for years and back in the day when my father was around, we never had a depth recorder, downriggers, or side planers. Back then it was Hand Seth Green Rigs, Old Victrola Jug Rigs, and in the spring, a lot of Slip Sinker fishing on bottom for the lakers. Good Luck, Don't give up, It's a great lake to fish and you can't beat the scenery. Just enjoy the serenity and being out doors. Fish Safe
  10. All fish came in 8ft - 14ft of water. 2.0 on my gps speed
  11. I had my little 14footer and mentioned to "don't forget your plug", at the launch. I went west and managed 6 for 6, all browns between the water tower and the beach.
  12. Headed out of Sandy on Saturday morning with my little boat, since I'm still getting my bigger boat ready to go. We hit the water at 7am and started hitting fish in front of the water tower in 10ft of water. Fished our way to Hamlin Beach and back to the water tower. We managed 6 for 6, All Browns. 4 came off riggers with spoons 3ft down and 120ft back and 2 came off the planer boards with jointed J11's at 120ft back. Nothing big, but a nice start to our season. Finished at 10:30am due to family commitments.
  13. I have 6 of the Cabela's Depthmaster Rods and Reels. The rods handle the fish fine and the reels are ok, but they seem to have a sensitive drag. It doesn't take much to tighten down the drag too much. I'm fine with them as long as my fishing friends keep their hands off the adjustments.
  14. Congratulations, that is an awesome way to start them out. I can remember telling my daughter when she was younger and I took her for the first time, that she was going to catch fish longer than her arm. I took her to Canandaigua and got into some nice Lakers in front of Vine Valley. She was so excited and I was right. Gotta love taking kids fishing.
  15. I have been thinking of dropping my Boat Us Insurance. It is running me in the range of $450 annually. Just seems steep with no claims since I got it in '97.
