  1. NYS Muskies Inc Chapter 69 attempted to raise the limit to your purposal a few years back and was shot down by the state so we met half way.

    As of today, its perfectly legal to harvest any tiger above said size and every angler is entitled to use our resources just as we use them ourselves. My choices aren't always everyone else's choices and we have to live with that. All we can donis keep on keeping on.....

     

     

    The amount of exposure and foot traffic the lake has received this winter is incredible.  Aside from the few "fish of a lifetime" we really don't know how many legal fish have been kept. I'm all in favor of increasing the minimum size limit to 40".  I am also puzzled by the fact the current through the ice norlunge world record chose to keep a 40" fish? Maybe it was bleeding and could not be safely returned.

  2. Seems to be a hot topic last few years.

     

    When I was involved with Muskies Inc, I brought up closing the tiger ice season or making it strictly catch n release during winter bc of high harvest and got crucified from one end of the state to the other by fellow anglers.

     

    DEC when contacted said they want the average angler to be able to take home what they consider a "trophy tiger".

     

    Best we can do is OUR best n educate those who are willing to listen. Tight lines gentlemen.

  3. I personally use solvent based paints due to dry time but water based has come a long way over the last few years and is what 95% of the hobby guys use with just as big of range of colors, candies etc and don't require ventilation.

     

    Nice to see so many paint squirters on here! Great paint jobs gentlemen, those spoons n cranks look like they could do some damage!

  4. This is Katias fish, Lax again. Time to get mount back maybe also taken into consideration, Fittante is known to take a year or two, Lax is a few months usually.

     

    I maybe mistaken but hasn't Blueye used both taxidermists, maybe he can chime in about time n painting? He has a couple of SUPER impressive mounts hes earned over the years!

  5. Ive used Lax 2x and picked them up at shows which may not be possible this year (covid) but saved $200 shipping . I also know of 2 fish (not mine) that were damaged during shipping and had to be sent back to be fixed.

    Local maybe best idea during these weird times.

    Pic is of a 2020 fish damaged in the mailing process (crack in head) my buddy got in ohio which is largest for the state for 2020 so far.

  6. We were up this week and weedcutters were out. You should be able to find good green casting weeds in some areas come October while other stretches are dead.

    For trolling, its a crap shoot. Depending on barometer and local weather the fish will suspend or hug shorelines. Your gonna have to fish to find out sir.

    We were up this week and didn't find much suspended bait, most fish were close to shore. received_591716028182324.thumb.jpeg.b4e2f90b9f405252ed003ba60830281f.jpegreceived_801223247353128.thumb.jpeg.f8a75164e519c5e75bdf64122081faf6.jpeg20200819_111826.thumb.jpeg.ff4c478d47aa9358fa84f70eb4855d2e.jpeg2020-08-18-20-25-08-766.thumb.jpeg.e886f2fb93af34039c3dbc099244e6c6.jpeg
