  1. Looks great! Do you have a website? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. First off- I think it is important to hear everyone's opinion on stuff like this. With that being said- I don't see how encouraging kids to enter a tournament changes the format of the tournament or affects somebody fishing the tournament without a kid? Chances are, you would only see the kids after the tournament and only in passing while on the water, so in theory, your fishing would be exactly the same. After the tournament, you would probably see the kid(s) at the cookout but you aren't obligated to spend time with them, you could shoot the breeze with others as you normally would (and get ice cream too!) I brought 2 of my nephews last year to the tiger tourney and I don't think anyone had an issue or even really noticed they were there (although to be fair they took off midday because of other plans). Either way, I'll bring anyone that wants to fish along with me, regardless of age, and still have a good time because it sure beats working around the house. PS- Kudos to those of you volunteering/donating things for the raffle tables (regular & kids)! I'm hoping one day I'll be able to add to the table... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. I agree, it should be all about the kids. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. I've heard through other internet discussions (take this as you will) that due to the properties of titanium, repetitious bending can cause breakage/failure with no warning. Steel that sees the same bending will show kinks/deformation and you know it needs attention/replacement. I'm not sure how true that is but it was enough to scare me off from titanium... I'd rather see bends and kinks in the steel after contact so I know if the leader has any life left in it, I'd hate to forget how much action a leader has and have a failure. Sk8man- using them in saltwater and for pike, have you seen this with titanium at all? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. Stay-lok snaps for sure, I have seen 2 other types of snaps open up after fighting and losing a fish. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. I agree with Steve, I was bit off on fluoro once, I only use steel now. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. Zach- I sent a rough draft to esoxonly, let me know your thoughts when you see it... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. I can hang up fliers in the Syracuse area... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. I really like this idea! I would like to attend all the tourneys but the distance really limits which ones I can fish (usually 0 or 1 tourneys). What does everyone else think about this? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. Also, I would love to see those kind of numbers for participants, the tourneys are way more fun when you have a big crowd! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. I do think a team should somehow be rewarded for catching more than 3 fish. Say team "A" catches 10 fish with their three biggest being 40, 40, 40. Team "B" catches 3 fish, a 40, 40, 41. Although team A caught 7 more fish (which is amazing when you talk about muskie) they would lose out to team B because of 1". I would say giving a point or half point for each fish over your 3 fish limit could be a way to "compensate" a team for catching a lot of fish. Or we could say....too bad, 3-fish is the rule... Either way, I like the team format and we could try the 3 fish rule for 1 tourney or an entire season and see how everyone likes it. If it doesn't work out, we could always revert back.

  12. I interpreted it as counting the teams 3 biggest fish, not the first 3 fish your team gets. I think that would be interesting and would like to try it out Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Do they have weekly bass tourneys there? I remember my first trip to waneta on opening day I had to park 1/4 mile up the road from the launch.... As for the team tourney, I think it's a great idea, it'll prevent any suspicions of who caught which fish.... The only possible downfall is if someone is casting alone, they would be at a disadvantage up against a boat of casters or two trollers with 6 rods out. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
