  1. That's a beauty! Nice to meet you---glad you guys had a kick ass day.
  2. Way to celebrate diversity! Great determination and another great report---many thanks!
  3. Years ago I used a Cabela's binder which was nice for organizing and categorizing swim baits and jigs but yeah, in time, they do get funky but for a trip or something short-term I think this would work okay for you. Couple of pics…
  4. Nick, thanks for the encouraging report. Your C- student is hoping to get there by the end of the week as long as Barrett's does their thing. I see your power cord in the photo---is the power on?
  5. Geez, you're close. I'm over on Log Run Road. I am a jigger at heart but with the lamprey issue on Seneca, I bought some trolling equipment to cover more water and target silvers---no downriggers---just lead core and Dipseys. Once the fleas and weeds become a PITA, I go back to mostly jigging. I just got some pretty 1 ounce Titan jig heads from Lunker City yesterday. Hopefully I will get them wet by next weekend.
  6. I'm wondering if the heated water being discharged into the Keuka Outlet on Seneca will discourage the lampreys from making a run to spawn---just trying to find some silver lining here. I was swimming at the outlet last September and it was like bath water!
  7. I see a similarity between the aquatic invasive species and other "land" invasives. I live in the woods and I am constantly at war with Japanese stilt grass, barberry (deer ticks love it), woolly adelgig (kills hemlocks), the emerald ash borer (all ash trees are now dead and gone), Gypsy moth caterpillars (small infestation last year but by the looks of the eggs, it's gonna be worse this year), the spotted lantern fly (haven't seen one yet but they are here), maple decline disease, etc. Ugh...
  8. Roy's Boys! Are you guys doing any good? The north end always seemed a little slow for me early in the season but it's probably just me…
  9. I bought a few from this guy but only tried them once: Jay Fair Trolling Flies I might play around with them again this spring but I just seem to go with spoons and maybe a Gambler Rig/Death Trap when I'm trolling. Good luck!
  10. It won't be long now! Thanks for the encouraging report.
  11. Thanks for the report---I'm counting the days! Sounds like you didn't mark any bait?
  12. Yeah, pretty much what Copperliner said, especially on the 2D sonar. I have 2 Humminbird Helix 5 FF's. One is the fancier version---down imaging, mapping, chirp, whatever… I'm not very impressed with it despite working through every possible setting. It's up in my flybridge and I watch it mostly for the mapping feature. For vertical jigging off the back of the boat, I have a plain Jane 2D sonar Helix 5. I think I paid 185 bucks for it or so and it works great for watching my jig and the Lakers snubbing it. In the photo below, you can see my jig descending diagonally through the cloud of bait and a Laker or 2 coming up to give it a sniff and then head back down to the bottom to sit in the mud and wait for Nick to come by.
