    Iroquois Refuge

    Had the chance to hunt Iroquois Refuge this morning. Lots of birds, great shooting and the stands well groomed. Mallards, teal, pintails, widgeons and the occasional goose mixed in. I'll try again next year for a tag. If you have the opportunity I'd recommend it to anyone.
  2. Nice to see you out mike
  3. Launched at 7 am. Headed east and went back west. Worked brown, green, and clear water all the way to the Genny. No debris floating anywhere. Most marks were outside of 10 ft but the brown water was 10 or less. Water was warmer to the west with 40-41 pretty common. Hits came mostly on small spoons. Slow day but the lake was flat and great to be out there. Would have been nice to have docks at the launch.
  4. Mike, Great fish! You deserve it. G
  5. Headed out solo in the late afternoon anticipating that the lake was going to lay down for the evening. I was planning on staying to dark but didn't need to. After launching and doing a quick circle around the mouth I headed west in 10 FOW. Only ran three rods off the back with sticks on all of them. Lots of brown water but I stayed outside in the dirty green water from the pumphouse to beach. Picked up a mixed catch of browns and a coho going west and browns, a steelie and an atlantic going east. Bait must have been there because the gulls were all around me feeding and I saw a few fish on the surface. All fish came on perch or gold/black baits. Water temps were 44 west of the mouth and just a little warmer to the east. I was amazed how quickly the brown water disappeared when the lake calmed down. The lines I fished going west were gone on my way back east.
  6. Launched out of Sandy this morning just before dark and headed west towards the Nose. Dropped the boards in at the Pumphouse and stayed in the 10-15 FOW for most of the run to the beach. No water color and no takers until we got the the beach where a laker took a shot a Sutton 88 back 50' in the wash. Turned north out to 30 FOW and headed west looking for better water. On the way back we picked up this bow on a gold/black rapala back 100' on the boards and a second release on a deep diving Jr Thunder Perch that never made it to the boat. By 11 am the wind had shifted to the west and we headed back in. Went through a bunch of sticks and spoons, but only the naturals seemed to get noticed. Best water color and temps were just outside of the mouth.

    Fat brown

    Nice !!!! I'd name that one Wilson!
  8. Another good morning out of Sandy. Left the launch and headed west towards the beach. Once we passed the pumphouse things broke loose in 10-15 FOW. Worked all morning from pumphouse to Area 1. Water had great color and the fish were there. Had to pick through a bunch of dinks but landed a couple nice browns and an Atlantic (someone please tell me if I'm wrong, yellow eye and no color in mouth). Lake was like glass all morning. We could have stayed all day but I've got an anniversary to celebrate tonight and after cutting me loose this morning I don't think she'd appreciate a sweaty, fish-smelling husband rolling in right before dinner.
  9. Pulled the boat out of the side yard and took the cover off to see how it wintered. Turned the ignition not expecting juice in the battery but the engine popped. That was all I need to hear and I knew where I was headed. No second thoughts. Launched at 3 pm and started setting lines as soon as we hit the lake. Worked west and east of the creek in 5-15 FOW. Lots of brown water and lumber but not as much as I expected. Found some really good lines and clear pockets. Caught all brown with most coming out of the clear water. Not a lot of size to them but great to be out.

    Home Made Planer Board Mast

    My winter project... 5' conduit pipe fits nicely into an old seat post. 1.5" PVC sleeve slides right over conduit. Cut in a couple of pvc crosses & fitted them with tees. Tees aren't glued so I can turn them and lock in place with pins. Cut a plastic wire spool in half and bolted the ends of another onto the cut ends. 3.5" pieces of 0.5" PVC through spools. 0.5" bolt (10") through mast some galvanized & nylon washers. Going to hand spool the line & secure the spools with a clip. Total cost= $50.

    Owasco 2-16

    Rolmops, same place, same holes. B-joe, bottom of hill with lots of others. Just got to be considerate of residents.

    Owasco 2-16

    Made the trip from Rochester to Owasco hoping to get into them down at Ensinore and we weren't disappointed. Started drilling holes early and the flags starting flying right away. Steady pick of lakers until about 10:30 when it slowed down. Had our limit so we were back home for lunch. Two great laker trips this season. Next time headed to the north end for jumbos.

    Owasco 2-1-14

    North of the launch/access about 1/4 mile, just around the point. Most everyone else was scattered out in front of the launch/access.

    Owasco 2-1-14

    Took the drive from Rochester to Auburn to fish Owasco today. It finally froze up and we couldn't wait to get to Ensinore for some deep water lake trout fishing. Had a great day, iced 15 by 10 am with them all coming from 90 to 150 FOW. Sounded like everyone was doing well. Poked around for perch but couldn't find any. Safe ice (5-8") everywhere I went but you never get used to Mother Nature's cracking and groaning when you're over the deep water. I had a newbie go by just as the ice cracked and I thought I was going to have to carry him off the ice. Ensinore should have good ice for a few days. Driving home it looked like people were spread out all over the north end.

    I-Bay 1/11

    Started early on the south end of the bay today. Worked both the east and west sides and everything in between. Not much action other than a couple of random shots in 20-30 FOW. Left around 10:30 thinking it wasn't worth getting wet from the rain or falling on the ice. If you go take your cleats!! An inch of water on top making it extremely slippery and a real lower body workout if you want to move around. Being sore will be a good excuse to lay on the couch and watch football today and tomorrow .
