  1. Very nice! They look like decent, healthy fish.
  2. Grumble… As if Seneca needed ANOTHER kick in the ass…
  3. Nick, thanks---I had a good teacher. I've been looking around for one or two of those 30° gimbal mounts that fits in my stern rod holders. I can't find anything that Cannon makes but Bert's manufactures these. Price doesn't look too crazy bad and I think the ratcheting rod holders run around $80 each. Any other suggestions would be appreciated!
  4. Thanks to everyone for the help! Nick, I'll even throw in a bag of Martin's famous beef jerky. Finally broke the ice on Seneca Friday morning with a laker, salmon, rainbow, and only one lamprey. The laker and LL came on the lead core and the rainbow hit a dipsey/spoon.
  5. Thanks---I picked up a few Tadpole Diving Weights to git 'em down.
  6. I should have mentioned that I will be fishing Seneca only. I'm guessing I wouldn't need anything more than 15 pound test as a backing? I'd like to do it on the cheap but I'd like to do it just once. Braid? Mono? I have 10 pound fluorocarbon for a leader…
  7. Hey, quick question from a newbie troller. I'm hoping somebody has a similar or identical set up. I want to run a couple of rods with lead core off the back of Followed The Waves. My rods and 18 pound lead core line were delivered today and I'd like to get spooled up before I get to the lake. The real is a Cabela's Depth Master III 20 (DM III 20). Looks like line capacity (presumably for standard monofilament) for 18 pound line is 230 yards. I bought 2 rods and reels and two 100 yard spools of lead core. Should I put some backing on the new reel before the lead core? I wasn't sure how much thicker the lead core was and how it relates to the reel's capacity. Thanks for any help! Addendum: The 18 pound lead core I purchased is .025" in diameter and I found this link which says 18 pound fishing line is .017" in diameter, so the lead core is about 32% greater in diameter---I'm just not sure how it factors into my reel's line capacity… Joe
  8. Sunday morning, looking toward the north end from just above Pontius Point and I had the place all to myself (which may explain my empty box)...
  9. Props to John and good luck to all fishermen tomorrow!
  10. I'm in! And if you enter by 5/1/21, I think you're eligible for a $250 drawing.
  11. 10-4 on Barrett Marine! I wouldn't go anywhere else. I've been up and down Seneca for 10 years and haven't heard a bad word about them yet. Except that maybe they are so dang busy!
  12. Doc, nice looking fish man! Bullet Bob, I wish you had a better day but I remember Ray saying years ago that we can't rush it. Probably two months out from 50° on the surface, although it looks like some peeps are rocking it. I'm dying to get back up on the water but I think Followed The Waves is due for a good bottom painting, so I am going to need some nice weather for a workday. I plan to focus a little more on the Silvers this year and maybe do some casting. Also hope to chase some Pike around later this spring. Sea yacht soon, Seneca!
  13. Very nice looking website!
  14. Looking forward to it even if I do smell the skunk. I'm dying to get back out on the water. Hard to believe the marina opens in just seven weeks.
