  1. I've kayak fish for salmon nearshore in the dark using glow in the dark spoons, and have also trolled for them out to three miles from shore using a Dipsy Diver. I wouldn't recommend the offshore trolling unless you have a very capable, watertight sit on top kayak.
  2. I kayak fishing for just about everything. We have a fairly active group of guys with the Western New York Kayak Fishing Association - search for us on Facebook. Also, we have a new tournament series for New York Kayak Anglers this season... http://www.lakeontariounited.com/fishing-hunting/topic/50317-new-york-kayak-bass-fishing-series/

  4. I honestly don't understand what the DEC crew did to warrant such ramp rage. You've outlined 8-9 minutes of delay, and I know it can be very aggravating to wait on hangups (and slow, inconsiderate boaters) at a launch, but in my opinion what you've described here hardly warrants the threat of violent confrontation that you admit to making. Also, getting into a fight at the launch would not have gotten you on the water any quicker, and I'm sure that any boaters waiting in line behind you were not appreciative of the extra delay due to your attempt to confront the crew. You have every right to call and complain if you feel you have a legitimate gripe. However, I agree that calling in and using the same tone of anger and insults that you've posted here will likely not result in a productive outcome for you.
  5. Mark, thanks! It is beautiful scenery out there. That is where I most often kayak fish.
  6. That's awesome! I you are where I think you are, I live just a few miles from there. I'd definitely be able to join you some evening. Lot's of fun!
  7. I usually concentrate on catching panfish & trout when ice fishing, but was very happy with my trip to a local Finger Lake about 10 miles from my house last Saturday morning. I was targeting yellow perch and had a tip from a friend about where I could get into a few good ones. Turns out, I was fishing in the wrong spot, but I was happy with the results and can't wait to kayak fish this spot after ice-out in a couple of months! First smallie was this nice 3lber... ...followed shortly by this Super Bowl worthy PIG of a football... Both were caught using a Rapala Jigging Rap tipped with a small fathead minnow in about 20 fow.
  8. Thanks! I'm just the club advisor. RIT bass club members compete in the FLW Collegiate Bass Series and other tournaments. In fact, the Club President, Corey Smith, took 1st place in the bass category at a catch-photograph-release benefit kayak fishing tournament last Saturday http://www.lakeontariounited.com/fishing/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=20349 The club works to advance the sport of fishing for members regardless of their experience level or angling interests. We had one student who had never picked up a fishing pole in their life catch their first bass last spring - lots of good fun. They also are using kayaks as a budget-minded way to get on the water and develop this method of fishing into a competitive collegiate sport: http://kayakanglerfishingclub.net/features/136-competitive-kayak-angling-graduates.html
  9. This was one of two Northern Pike that I caught before dark on Lake Ontario last evening when I went kayak fishing with a couple members of the RIT Bass Club and my friend Andrew instead of staying home in bed with my cough - I'm paying for it today... CoUgH! It was still fun though I caught them fishing at a creek mouth on a glow-in-the-dark 2/5 oz. Little Cleo while fishing for trout and salmon. Andrew caught a 7-8lb steelie
  10. Way to grit it out in the slow fishing to pick up at least one fish. I came very close to say to heck with it and going out there with you. Alan has upgraded to a bigger kayak and we took it out on Canadice and caught a few bass and pickerel while he got adjusted to it. I also have a slightly longer kayak on the way that should be faster and a bit easier to paddle the long distances in Lake Ontario - can't wait until the water sets up better and the big fish are in closer!
