  1. 10 bids already and up to $70.00 w/ 5 and a half days left. awesome job guys- we are gonna have the fattest skies this side of the mississippi!
  2. i was cleaning out the garage and found my old musky cradle that i built over 12 years ago. it is fine mesh and is still in good shape. there are some dime size holes in the mesh from hooks that had to be cut out but could help out someone that doesn't have some sort of large net or cradle already. i live in rochester and is for pick up only. just couldn't throw it out if it could help someone release a musky in better shape. i now have a huge net so this cradle is no longer needed. will fit 50" skies if you get that lucky. if you are feeling generous i will take $20 bucks for it to donate to the chautaqua musky fund. cradles used to sell for decent $.
  3. i bid $47.00 to get this going and it is all i can bid as of now-

    those walleyes in there are fun- but i would never eat one. nasty genny water! go to onieda to stock the freezer before u grow another eye on your forehead or just glow in the dark and start talking slower from these contaminated fish. have to be the most toxic walleyes in the state and the bigger they are the more toxic they become. be careful eating any genny fish but they sure are fun. big baits catch those big walleyes. i have seen some monsters in there over the past 20 years i have been fishing down there. nice job catching them, just makes me sick thinking about eating even one- two is ever nastier. i think the genny is better walleye fishing than oswego which is sooooo famous but lets keep that quiet like we all have that fish it for the last 2 decades. i bet u didn't see more than one or two other boats fishing when u were down there. lets keep it that way. nice job catching them. if you want any of my info for down there pm me. in my opinion, MARRY her ( your girlfriend ) she really came through for you and went most likely just for you! good woman! she do any good fishing? see any beavers, turkey, deer or eagles on your trip up the genny? awesome place to fish considering that gang shoot-outs, hookers and crackheads are only just up over that cliff in downtown roc- city. its like a hidden gem in the dirtiest part of rochester. nice job again! thinking back i have logged by far the most fishing hours in the lower genesee than anywhere else i fish.
  5. nothing trolling- got a 39" (not the same one as bobs) northern casting a softtailed phantom up shallow in the north end. moved alot of fish w/ that jerkbait and almost got a small tiger on the 8. that fish was hot but i scared it away being so ugly, he looked up at me and said c-ya (i forget to shave this week). the northern earned alot of respect w/ me. i was thinking that it was bigger than almost 1/2 of my muskies last year i made a mistake and tried to hand land it even though i had the net right there. got all cut up as it shook lifting it outta the water and decided to get going as my hand was bleeding pretty good. i think i am getting back to my roots as a caster and hope to cast most of this year. so... only 2 northerns (one good one though) and saw 4-5 tigers that followed the jerkbait and lost one fish before i saw it. you know when they hit after only one or two twitches at the end of a cast. the only thing i saw fish on was that phantom. used everything, but the phantom ruled for the 3 hours i was there. those weeds in 7 fow were hot. only fished them for one drift and had all those follows before i packed up w/ a shredded hand. i will use my net next time, i just HATE unraveling the net from the hooks. did i mention i hate untangling hooks from nets! bob when i fish alone the net is always extended for those same reasons u found out (chinese fire drill). happy to get out! bty never use phantoms, they are a complete waste of time but don't ask for any of mine.
  6. cut small pieces of pencil lead. smash one end w/ pliers and put a hole through it (small drill bit) for the snap to attach. 10x easier and 10x cheaper than slinkeys. your slinkies would be 10" long to fish that current compaired to a much smaller piece of lead. i bet that slinky would creat drag by itself making u go even heavier than needed. i have used both and prefer the lead. carry cutters w/ you and cut off lead if its too heavy.
  7. from my early season fishing, i by far enjoy casting with a leader that has no swivel on it but instead a uni-knot that joins the line and leader together. when casting i was able to feel the knot tip the tip top instead of banging into the swivel when you reel a tad too far up. as long as the bait doesn't spin i couldn't imagine going back when i am casting but think that changing leaders every time out makes sense. i am sure my tip tops will thank me in the long run. i also found when twitching the raps and small slammers that the action was better. i may be crazy but i think it makes a differance on the small lures. will still troll w/ a swivel on my leader just to help catch weeds.
  8. bob- if those turkeys work out like i think they should, i will be down there fishing tigers by mid-morning. will call if i head out. last four turkey seasons i have left the woods on opening day with a turkey by 8am. hope this year my luck doesn't run out. looking for that early season slam. turkeys and tigers.
  9. gonna go turkey hunting in the morning and then tigers south of rochester if the morning works out.
  10. great job guys! little colton is gonna be rewarded w/ great fishing in the future b/c of you guys!
  11. i sucked it up and ordered a shadillac, 2 small madussas( they now have 4 colors in the small ones), 2 hellpuppies, 3 softtailed phantoms, a warlock and enough stuff to tie up tons of spinnerbaits and bucktails of all sizes, shapes and colors if anyone wants one tied up a certain color/ size/ blade combo let me know. rollie and helens just got all my $ but its on now!
  12. i know where i am going for the opener after turkey hunting in the morning. was fishing last night and accidentally caught this 29.25" waldo. accidentally caught a few more "smacker" walleye, a smallmouth, one catfish and a big pike. this is my 3rd largest waldo from this body of water. yeah i am holding it out but it is a slob either way about it. just posting this picture to get all the walleye fisherman excited. taken w/ a cell phone so crappy pic. last year i got a 32.5" and a 31" trolling at night at this spot on the largest rapalas they make and worm harness' w/ big blades (#5 and #6 colorado). i think the rapalas are size f13. i can only guess that both of these fish in the pics were easily over 10lbs, i am guessing the big one was around 12-13lbs since it was as fat as they can get. anyways it is still out there for you to catch. i only eat walleye from onieda so all of these are safe but i bet u could make two hamburgers with the cheek meat on this one. best luck and catch one for me. only 2 months until musky season opens in NY and all these other fish are safe from me! bty, yes i do know waldo's are not in season so no need to beat me up. this one was 28" my buddy kevin caught and released. i am sure some of u guys know where that bridge is and how come his looks bigger than mine? no fair!
  13. lately i uni-knot 50-60 lb flourocarbon to my braided mainline if not using a spinning lure.
  14. the sebile magic swimmer 228 or the 190. most likely the 228 but once again $30 is the starting point it seems for the swimbaits. i like the 3 hooks one the 228.
  15. buy the .99 cent tails from rollie and helens to get differant colors and cut to fit or u can get 3 tails from phantom for 2.99 outta rollie and helens but all tails will be same color.
  16. gustofson- soft tailed phantoms is all i can say about glide baits! i do have a small hell puppy coming anyday and will let u know if its any good.
  17. well from the lack of responses, i need to get some swimbaits just b/c no one else is planning on using them!
  18. the bid is increasing quickly. outta my reach now.
  19. nice- now nitro has to bid at least $49.99! he's rich- come on nitro, its an amma bamma. no excuses nitro! the family can go w/o groceries for a week can't they? i am sure they will understand if you want to bid even more.
  20. got another bucket last night. was alittle slower than last time but only took 10 mins. artpark.
  21. i just started our bidding at $19.99. this should let people know we are serious.
  22. old man- in your opinion why do the rabbid squirrels hook up better than other spinnerbaits? just b/c i tie them up also and am always looking to improve them. are they not durable b/c the hair falls out or what?
  23. plan on going down friday night camping/ fishing saturday. ny needs to step up and change this season we have before i spend all my $ on gas- i will have fished kentucky and pa both 2 months before "our" season starts. nitro? bob? when are you guys leaving? come on nitro- i see u have private info. gonna share it or do i have to just follow u around all day to find out whats going on? i will if i have to nitro- and bob what are u gonna fish with? didn't u sell all your lures on ebay?
