  1. Fat Trout, first of all there's NEVER been a striper problem in the Columbia River Basin. As for your....laughable comment about the stocked salmon, trout, and smallmouth? Get real. There are so many lakes across the country that have stripers added to the environment, and there are not any, I repeat ANY issues with them being this voracious fish as you're trying to imply. So, I really don't care about this insane support of fish that can't sustain themselves. It's pathetic. How about the main concern is fish that are viable? Would benefit the environment? Add exponentially more revenue for the fishery? You're speaking without any true education on this fish. It shows. Oh,, and as for the cormorants? They're a pain in the ass. Here and on salt water. You've got a bigger problem with them than stripers. But, I digress....
  2. GILL-T you don't know an darn thing about striped bass, that much is obvious. Just stop while you can.
  3. I saw stripers! Also someone calling them...as I'm laughing...a warm water species!! Oh.....too funny..... Drop the Atlantics. Go for viability,
  4. Selling my planer board mast. In great shape, I just don't use it. Asking $275. Located in Canandaigua
  5. Any chance these are still available?
  6. Hey I wanted to apologize to everyone! I didn't have my notifications set right and everything was going to my junk folder!
  7. Man, I have to tell all of you, thanks! It's taken a while for me to get to the point that I can put serious time into this. Very appreciated!
  8. Hey Jeremy my number is 585-490-3976 so give me a call or shoot me a text sometime. I really appreciate this!


  9. Charlie P thank you! So I think it was you that asked about boat gear etc. 1998 Trophy 1903 cc, 120 Mercury. Just bought a trolling plate to slow it down. I have 2 walker manual down riggers, 2 or 3 trolling rods, Okuma reels with line counters, braid. 2 dipsy diver, a few flies, a couple flashers, a bunch of spoons of different sizes and patterns. I also have a bunch of other rods from 5 to 13 feet, reels, all sorts of other lures. Plus fixed and clip on planer board, and a planer board tree I still need to mount. I've been accumulating!
  10. Jeremy that would be fantastic! Only thing for me next weekend, is I have a kayak tournament on Saturday. I fish the NYKBF series and we're on Hemlock and Canadice next Saturday. I'll message you my number, and we can stay in touch.
  11. Hi All, I've been working off and on for the last several years, trying to figure out a lot of this fishery. Would anyone be willing to take me out, teach me the proper way to set up the rods, downriggers, the whole gamut? I'll gladly pay fuel, food, time, etc. Or recommend a charter captain that would be willing to do this? I'm tired of fumbling around. I have 8 year old twin boys that are really showing serious interest in it, so it's important to me to learn to do this properly for a change. Not asking for secret spots or any of that stuff. Just education. I learn much better from hands on, rather than watching Youtube. I don't even need to reel in a fish. Just set up, and tackle recommendations etc. I'm in Canandaigua, but traveling isn't a problem. Thanks John
  12. So I went looking for the spoon pouches, and saw the Amish Outdoors Spoon Caddy. That might be the ticket.
  13. So since I'm getting ready to start trolling with my kayak for the first time, let me ask a question to your question. Are you trolling only spoons? Because I was going to use plano type boxes that fit under my seat, with pieces of pool foam cut to hold the hooks. I'm still pretty new to the trolling aspect up here for trout and salmon. I've only been out with a few charters.
