  1. Can anyone recommend a spare tire carrier for my trailer that won't disintegrate after one season? The last two i had were from Harbor Freight (guess i didn't learn the first time) and they both completely fell apart. I carry the spare vertically on the frame of the trailer rather than laying flat on the tongue. thanks
  2. We got one a few years ago up by mayville that looked just like that. And nice 45 yesterday Larry. I was trolling through that area earlier in the afternoon and got nothin.. Ran south and went 2 for 5 with biggest only at 34". Not sure what the problem was.... hooks were razor sharp. After my bait was spit back at me the 3rd time i damn near pulled a mike iaconelli...

  4. Going on my 3rd season with Costa Hammerhead 580g and I love them. Another plug for Webster Eye Care- they were great to deal with and i am thinking of visiting again this summer for a second pair Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. I have to keep mine at 55 or they dont wear at all in the middle... Have been running them at 55 for a few years now and i trailer all over the state with no issues Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. Wow- cool story and pictures. nice to see some other guys' adventures even if they don't involve huge fish. Chad, was it you that fished the tourney at the cave last year? I remember seeing a report from last spring and was tough goin down there also. I love to take road trips and explore new waters almost as much as i love catchin big fish so it is cool to see guys posting reports outside of the local waters
  7. Nice job! I have a sister in WV and have been meaning to try the muskie fishin out that way. You may have just inspired me... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Reelguy (Chris) is the real deal. Sent him a few reels last friday... Some bait casters and a couple daiwa sealine line counters. They arrived back to me today all cleaned/lubed and look great...1 week turnaround! Just wanted to give this guy a plug... will be sending a few more reels your way later this season.. Thanks again Chris Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. The wolf fish pictured is indeed hoplias aimara (locals call it hymara). Curupira is a different fish and although their native ranges overlap, curupira looks a bit different and does not get as big. Not trying to be a smart a$$, i am just a fish geek and have kept several members of the hoplias genus as pets over the years. I will have to save my pennies and join you on one of these trips in the next couple of years Capt Larry. Looks to be the trip of a lifetime! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. So cool! I used to live near sanibel and have caught just about everything that swims around there... But never caught a lookdown. Very unique looking fish. Man do i miss grilled pompano! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  12. Whoa...that thing is a monster. Spent a week there last July and didn't even see a pike. I am not much of an ice fisherman but maybe i should rethink that...

  16. Spent a few hours in the harbor yesterday also- no action and nothing on the graph. Back into the river and went 3 for 4, biggest was just over 40". Man it was a nice day to be out on the water Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  17. I believe the early opener is for inland waters only- since they are supported by stocking and there is little to no natural reproduction. Maybe someone else will chime in that is more familiar with the proposals. Agreed that great lakes waters should remain 3rd sat in june to protect spawning fish- looks like the plan is to keep the season on great lakes the same Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  18. Wow! Beautiful fish and great story Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  19. Nice job!! 👠Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  20. Thanks- fished hard fri/sat and early sun. Bunch of big pike and the one muskie. Was a smaller guy but posted the pic since fish from the larry are so damn cool looking. Was out solo so had to put him on the board to get a decent pic. beautiful weekend on the river
  21. Wind finally laid down yesterday afternoon and picked up a 40 incher near clayton. Back at it this morning Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  22. Nice job! I'll be up there this weekend lookin for one of those Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  23. Awesome fish! And agree with Ivan on posting some paint jobs Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  24. Cool stuff for sure- thanks for sharing Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  25. Nice- I believe the black spots are flukes (parasites) in their larval or cyst form. I have seen these quite a bit on smallmouths in the past. I think the flukes can only reach adulthood if the infected fish is consumed by a bird....but don't quote me on that. I am no biologist, just a fish nerd
