    Flatlining Muskies.

    Agreed. Wouldn't go lower than 80lb braid. The lures themselves do a number on your equipment and will really wear on your knots, etc. I'd suggest 174# single strand steel or 130-175# fluorocarbon for trolling leaders.
  2. Amazing fishing, great event, great guys. Thanks for putting on a good show Matt.

    Cover it all. It's not that big. Look at the topo map and cast the weed and drop edges. You'll figure it out. That's all the fun. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    12' boat + holiday weekend pleasure boat traffic= stay off of chautauqua. You'll be miserable out there getting pounded by waves. If I were you I'd fish cassadaga or bear. I cut my teeth on those lakes in a 14' canoe and then a 14' sea nymph. Lot of fun to fish when your starting out. Fishing a 12' boat makes them not seem so small. Great places to learn and with any basic knowledge you should get feedback from the fish and have a good day. Good luck.

    Here is the fun footage from that night. Hunting partners make awful shooting benches. If the scenario ever comes up for anybody out there, just shoot off hand. Lol https://youtu.be/eNdb2C7k4UE

    Had 1 last goal for the year and that was to put my buddy on a late season yote. Took a couple trips but we got it done on the 3rd set tonight. Dogs were very vocal and this little female committed at the 32 minute mark to fox pros female submissive. Played 7 minutes of pup distress after she dropped and started over to grab our prize. Sure enough a dog comes in on her trail and I couldn't get still enough without my tripod to seal the deal on the double. (Shooting off ur partners back is an awful way to keep still by the way). Lol The lines in the video are caused from the core starting to freeze on the thermal. 3 straight long sets without a break was apparently enough to make it happen. I've seen it in my handheld monocular on frigid days but never got the scope cold enough to make it happen until tonight. Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk

    Just for comparison this is my pulsar thermal from the same spot the same night for comparison. Herd of deer didn't care for whimpers. Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk

    Heading out in a few. Been a tough month. Last dog was Feb 17 and last 23 sets have came up empty. Although I can blame 3 misses on trying to get buddies a coyote. Playing "guide" is tough sometimes. Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk

    About 10 pages back I remember a lot of questions about NV vs Thermal and types of NV. At the time I recommend digital NV and particularly the Sellmark photon. Here is an example of what you can expect from a $600 photon rt 4.5-9x42. Recording is from built in on board recording using a $40 aftermarket 850 ir. Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk

    Crunchy snow is killing me. 15 long sets this week with zip to show for it. More than sure I've educated a few dogs, they can hear me coming from miles away. Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk

    Have had that twice this year. Once with a fox in early November and once last week. Hero fox coming to the rescue I guess. Did 2 sets last night. 1st set a pack lit up as soon as I hit the first howl. Of course they were right behind the house I just parked at and I'm sure found my scent and foot prints minutes later. Next set I had nothing for 40 minutes and then 3 separate dogs sound off when I shut down pup distress. Another 20 minutes and nothing. I would have cut the distance and reset but that crunchy snow had me stuck where I was. I'll get them next time. Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk

    Biggest thing is just making the transition from scan light to shooting light without taking a light off the dog. Messing up that transition is a sure fire way to send them running. Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk

    External ir is the way to go actually. Internal ir lights are always weak and crush battery life on the scope. Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk

    Yes an after market ir light will make it clearer than the stock light ever could. You can buy an ir led for your wicked light for $29 Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk
