    Hardwater report !!

    It was lucky but I was fishing for them and perch. 14 ft small tungsten jig with spikes
  2. Yesterday when my son and I were were walking out on the ice at Conesus I stared at a spot on the ice in disbelief. It was littered with dead shiners, dead gills, a pile of charcoal briquettes, a garbage bag with trash, an empty propane tank, and an empty full sized brandy bottle all embedded in the ice. It was the most disgusting example of why some people spoil things for the rest of us whether hunting or fishing. Unfortunately, trying to retrieve the stuff was impossible as it had frozen right into the ice. Several other fishermen I spoke with had seen it and were enraged....really sad. When we came back in I noticed that someone had been able to free and collect the garbage bag and propane cylinder at least.

    copper set up question

    250 or 300 good choice in my opinion as you can add weights to get them deeper if needed and can get them in fairly quick (about like a ten color leadcore) to save on arms and fishes life.

    Good to see some decent perch from there instead of the dinks
  9. Underwater light meters - https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=underwater+light+meters For the oxygen levels underwater you'll probably be stuck with very expensive attachments to specialized scientific equipment

    Lure blanks

    Great to know Jason. High quality spoons that work great whether on Lake O or the Finger Lakes. Good to see things ramping up.

    Peanut rigs

    Matt - Brian is the one you want to learn the laker stuff from....he has it down to a science and It is fun to make your own stuff though I've been doing it for years including the peanuts since 1978 or so but I also have a bunch of the Gambler Rigs etc. as they are totally proven on the Fingers as well as Lake O. and when my own stuff isn't doing it I put them on multiple setups and BOOM! Quality product from a quality guy. I know you fish Seneca and since the fishing there has gotten tougher lately the Gambler Rigs and the peanuts are the way to go for Lake Trout and some larger Browns as well.
