    'BOUT TIME II
  1. Last night provided some solid action. Did a laker, 16lb King, and a 28+ lb King. I've never seen so much bait in my life 'Bout Time Mike
  2. Afternoon trip out of FH produced. Started slow with a laker but found some huge bait pods. Started working the bait pods as I saw some fish scattered through. 300 dipsy ripped out to almost 700. 16 lb King in the net, 15 minutes later 120 rigger fires and after a great fight 28+ lb King hit the deck.

  3. Bruzer axle to axle is 18 at rest and 15 @ draw Vs. Ten point 22.6 at rest vs. 19 @ draw. I do almost all tree stand hunting so I am leaning towards the bruzer for the compact design Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Looking at getting a crossbow. Question I have is how important is the actual weight of the crossbow? I have it narrowed down to two different models. Tenpoint invader G3 330 FPS 96.7 kinetic energy 165lb draw Weighs 6.6 lbs Vs. Bear Bruzer FFL 335 FPS 99.3 kinetic energy 125lb draw weight Weighs 9.0 lbs Both have dry fire safety, warranties, and are very comparable. I can get the bear for $110 cheaper than the tenpoint. I have very short walks to my hunting locations - a mile or less. So I'm wondering if the extra weight is that big of a deal 'Bout Time Mike

  6. I thought it would be cool to start a thread to share "non fish" pictures, more like sunrises, sunsets, etc that we all see and enjoy while out on the water. Here is one from Saturday morning. The rainbow only lasted 10 minutes but I was able to capture this shot 'Bout Time Mike
  7. Missed my morning bite but hit the water around 730. Decent screen from 100 out to 180 then it was a ghost land. Ended the day at 11 with 3 Kings one laker. Hot setup was Green / chartreuse pro troll trailed by an Green A-Tom-Mik Mfg. Hammer fly. That combo took 3 out of the four fish. All fish came off riggers at 80-90-102. Best waters were 130-180 for me. 'Bout Time Mike

  10. Black, black, black, and black. I will change it up once in a while and throw a custom green white dot out, but mostly always black Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. One trick on the special mates is to cut a piece of mattress foam material to fit the exact width and length of the inside of the box. Lay the foam on top of all the spoons and dividers. Since the hooks are down they don't get hung up in the foam and it takes up all excess space. It may not work 100% of the time but has worked more than not to stop the spilling of spoons when the box gets tipped over 'Bout Time Mike
  12. I have 2 of the Tanacom reels. One 500 and one 750. Short answer is yes you can use them to reel in fish Long answer. These are great reels with a lot of bells and whistles that you will probably never use but can be used for salmon fishing. They have a star drag system just like a conventional reel. You will still have to " work the fish" with pumping the rod to gain line. Things to watch on these reels are: 1. They are super smooth and have a clutch system - NO CLICKER. So it is up to the user or someone watching closely if you are gaining line or the fish is taking line. The menus on the reel itself can be confusing and the ones I have are in Japanese ( I believe ) Def not English. Not sure if they all are I use mine with a standard power cord that just clips onto my house batteries. I do run into issues with the cable being limited to reach certain sides of the boat I only run mine when I have disabled or older guys on board. I do a lot of the wounded warrior events and they do work great. I have seen the larger ones used for coppers and have even seen a charter use one for a dipsy setup. One last suggestion would be run your best lure or setup on this rod. If you are looking to get someone into a fish it just limits them to this one rod Hope this helps 'Bout Time Mike
  13. I am doing as well as I can be at this point. I have ended my therapy sessions I did 35 visits and now am on home remedy. I have good days and not so good days but that is to be expected. The nerve damage is slowly coming around and that seems to be far worse then the physical shoulder at this point. I will lose some motion (behind the back etc) but overall should be able to get most back. I was told that I should avoid gun season this year or at least shoot left handed as one of the anchors and screws is placed directly where the butt stock sits. I have started to shoot my kids bow which is 18lbs and gradually increasing my reps on that. I'm at 15 weeks so all in all I feel like I'm getting there. I must say this has been the most humbling surgery I have been through ( and I have had ALOT). It really shows how many things I took for granted and was a hard pill to swallow.

  14. another thing to consider is not just the lures, or your presentation but other factors including speed and direction. You will find that fish may like it slower or faster depending on their moods and you may also find that most of your hits are generated when going one direction versus another. just another part of the equation
