  1. Crestliner Sabre SST Transom Issues?

    I have a 20.5 Authority - thing is like a brick sh!t house
  2. 2004 16 Ft Lund Alaskan for Sale Very good condition - comes with Lowrance HDS8 and MinnKota bow mounted trolling motor. Also comes with two small Big Jon downriggers as well. Two brand new tires on trailer. 40 HP Yamaha 4 stroke. Side Console model with steering wheel (not tiller model). Great boat for all seasons - 7K. Caught lots of browns, lakers, perch, bass, etc on this boat. Call Dave at 585-233-1103
  3. It was tough for me out there today - just a skippy and one streaker on the screen. Fair amount of bait but not a ton of hooks
  4. Nothing out deep yet - got a Mtn Dew spinny and a green crinkle out on the wire about 250. Seeing some Bait clouds but not a ton. A few hooks but again not a ton. We are in 430
  5. Out front of Golden Hill in 400+ Just set up as I had issue with trailer this morning. Two riggers down 3 spoons each one down 45 the other75- going to put wire diver out next. Marking a little but not a ton. Going on 68 ,,,I'm all about sharing
  6. I've caught them out to 300 ft if the cold water pushes them out. I've also caught them on top when the water is 70 degrees - you never know. They are are great fish, we are really lucky to have them the way we do.
  7. Pete - I've done my share of jigging on the finger lakes with moderate to great success. I've tried Lake Ontario 3 times now and tried cabelas jigs and both 1 and 1.5 oz jig heads with paddle tails that work on Keuka and Cayaga but I can't get it to go. I am really anxious to get it to work on browns, lakers, and salmon. The screen was very strange today in 65-120 as in loosely formed bait with some hooks but not what I'm used to seeing. Your post gave me a lot of encouragement to keep trying. Did you catch all lakers? I know guys catch browns on the butterfly jigs but I still need to get some. I use 1 oz cast masters on Keuka in the fall with good success - I'm going to try that next. I am running about 35 feet of Floro between the lure and braid. Thanks so much for this post. It will keep me trying. Flanman
  8. Niagara Bar out of Wilson in May! Unbelievable fishing. Best of the year in my opinion. Planer Boards, divers and riggers all work. Nice mix of fish too!
  9. Niagara is a great option - lower river browns and steels - Jigging for lakers on Finger Lakes can be stupendous
  10. Oak Report 5-19

    I am at it again today - I'm having a tough time again - surface to 70 down - not a bump - it has to be early transition - but they have to eat some time cause they haven't been eating much the last three days - wonder if I should go way deep or is it just a waste of gas?

  11. Fished west - Shadigee and Golden Hill - slow fishing but managed 1 King and 1 Coho - reds and greens all spoons - surface to 65 seemed to be best. Strange that it is not way better [ Post made via BlackBerry ]

    Its tough out here today! [ Post made via BlackBerry ]
  13. The drum do taste good - you just have to keep them on some ice before you fillet them - the flesh reminds me of saltwater fish like saltwater drum or triggerfish I have eaten- just cut out the bloodline - it is very good blackened - It is a dry fish so you don't want to overcook it. Everyone has to get over the trash fish issue - it fights good and tastes good - its not a perch but it is every bit as good as many other fish that I have supped on ........hey - its just just not the most beautiful fish in our area but your eating it - not kissing it. If I blackened it and put it next to some red beans and rice - no one would ever believe its a drum. If you got one this time of year, it would be unbelievably good out of the cold water. Only reason I know all of this is that I contemplated eating one for 20 years and finally did it last year and was very impressed.
  14. Honda outboard mechanics

    I have had good luck at Seagar Marine in Canandaigua - they have a shop off Parrish - I have had my Honda in there many times and I have to drive it all the way down from the Oak to do it. - Good Luck
