  3. The ice breaker n 1st for 2017 . Dink city!!! Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Couldn't take it a day longer n headed down south just to show up peak spawn. Only fish I got to bite were the lil ones not taking part in the breeding. Did see a mid 40s casting and fish actually doing the dirty in the shallows . Got 4 dinks n a catfish. Had to get out and scratch that itch. All fish came on a 8' flat running 6' of line and even though I didn't get the fish I wanted, feel way better now. Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. The dog n I saw the DEC stocking fish tuesday, assuming they were dumping hatchery browns in the bay, neat to see. Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Couldn't get out to the lake on Tuesday bc of waves so I took a trip around i bay. Got this brown off German village along with a smaller one that was off the Newport yaht club. I grew up in Irondequoit and browns r more common than u think imo. Both fish ate clown scatter raps. Made 2 trips around the bay n called it quits.

  7. I don't understand Ur thinking kaptag, not like I'm asking u to babysit my kid. Sux u don't share the same enthusiasm as I do and maybe that's why Ur kid doesn't fish and chose a different path. I know I'll never make everyone happy and this proves it but I have a belief that we need to leave things better than we found it and to me this is how it grows organically but don't worry Kaptag- fat boy here will eat Ur ice cream for ya! Bty. What's wrong with family day and an ice cream social? Sounds like a good time to me but if u think this takes away from a competitive tournament, I apologize.

  8. I agree, let's see what the club thinks. Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. I agree, the next generation is why we do all this isnt it? Thanks for the support, I'll run it by the club next chance I get. I also want a kids only raffle table where each n every kid gets a ticket n an item to bring home and we are working on getting some rod n reel combos for the kiddies behind the scenes currently. I'll also be serving ice cream for all the kids (and the not so kids like myself) after each tournament. Happy to do so! Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. For 35 bux plus shipping, I'll stay with my 4 dollar pliers. Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. These single stand wire leaders in lighter wire would be perfect for those smaller baits imo. And your very welcome, anything I can do to help! Happy to do so. Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. For smaller baits, use lighter wire but leave off the swivel unless the lure spins like a spoon or spinner. I've seen others use a solid round ring on one end of their leader to tie to but I've never had an issue tying directly to the wire. Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Since titanium can't be bent like normal wire, u have to rely on crimps and is why I won't use them. Crimps fail, plain n simple. If it hasn't happened to you yet, just give it time. Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Flouro 80lb which r my trolling leaders - i just use a clinch knot with 4 turns, add a drop of super glue and burn the tag end so it mushrooms. Easy and is why I will NEVER pay for another leader in my life. Ideally I'd nail knot it but I've never had an issue and it let's me make leaders on the fly. I hope I helped a lil but if ya need a few leaders, happy to bring a few for ya when I go to otisco. Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Easy as 1,2,3. Any questions, plz ask. Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. So, this is 240lb single strand. I get around 20 leaders made outta a 4 dollar pack of wire, do the math (it's cheap). I use jewelry pliers from Michaels to do my bends and it works well imo. Here's some pics of how I do it and all I need to do is add a snap on one end for my jerkbait leaders but if u wanted , just add a swivel for a bucktail leader on one side n a snap on the other. This way, when a leader is bent or weakened, 50 cents and 1 min later Ur back in the game. I will say it again, just make sure Ur leader is longer than Ur lure.

  17. Crimped titanium leaders r junk as I've seen the crimp fail on small pike myself. Just my opinion as I've seen other use them and not have any issues. Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. I'll go take a pic, I use jewelry pliers for the bend on wire and if the lure doesn't spin then imo, the casting leader doesn't need a swivel. My jerkbait leaders r just a piece of wire (always make sure Ur casting leaders is a few inches longer than Ur lure so if it hangs on the hooks, Ur main line won't fray) and a snap. A swivel will cause Ur leader to sink when the bait is paused hanging up in the hooks. Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. So happy that we all are coming together. So grade purchasing this equipment outta his own pocket has gotta make the rest of feel like we need to contribute! Beautiful Bobby!!!! Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. What do u guys think about kids under a certain age fish the tourneys for free as long as the adult is entered? If we want to get kids involved, imo this helps. Thoughts??? Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. I buy spools of wire from lure parts online for 4 bucks so that way u can replace em n it's no issue for my casting leaders. A spool of 80lb flouro for trolling leaders, Too heavy of line for trolling n tough to tie knots. To each their own but this way is cheapest for me.

  22. I'd love to come take a look. Pm sent. Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  23. U got me itching now Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  24. While some have tried crimps, most of us tie the line after having issues with crimps. Do what works for u but I also 2nd the stay lock stringease Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  25. Sorry, teams for all tourneys. New to this so I apologize. I shoulda mentioned that but I was thinking the fish rule. Lots going on! Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
