  1. Sounds about right. I was guessing close to 20#. He was all of 36” and round.
  2. Can’t stop thinking about this one…. Fished Sandy Creek yesterday and picked this laker over 140 ft. We didn’t have a scale and we’re not in the derby so we sent her back down. Almost don’t want to ask but any guesses on weight?
  3. Lowrance Mark 5X dsi sending unit. No transducer or temp probe. $50. Located in Rochester, NY. Buyer pays shipping. PayPal or Venmo.
  4. Ritchie Angler compass with mounting bracket. $20. Located in Rochester, NY. Buyer pays shipping.
  5. I picked this Savage 1899 250-3000 up last year when a friend offered it. Carried it once during deer season and filled a doe tag then put it away. I don’t feel like it fits me well so I’m trying to decide what to do with it, but before I make any decisions I want to know more about it. Does anyone have any information or thoughts they can share ?
  6. Fished 5:00 to 11:00 and did 4 kings, 1 steelhead and a nice Atlantic. Bunch of releases we couldn’t connect on. Fished west of the creek in 180-250 fow. Best water was 225 fow. All rigger hits on spoons. Watermelon and red with pink spots was best.
  7. Had a chance to get on the water early today before the steady rain came in. Fished west of the creek to the beach. Water was green to clear but overcast helped. Fished sticks and spoons from 10-30 fow. Went 4 for 4 with 3 browns and a steelhead. Best stick was a perch and best spoon was SS88. Brown water was east of the creek. Water levels going up. Docks at launch starting to get wet.
  8. Fished west of Sandy Creek today 7:00-11:00. 10-20 fow. Lots of fishable brown and green water. Sticks on boards and Sutton 44s on riggers. Went 6 for 11 with 5 football BT and 1 coho. Lost king at the boat. Launch is good and mouth is 5-6 ft deep. Some debris floating in lake but nothing that can’t be managed. Felt good to get out.
  9. Lead for weights or sinkers. 23lbs total. 1 block, 3 drop weight, and sinkers. $25 takes all. Rochester area. Shipping or delivery TBD.
  10. Took my buck yesterday up by Rochester. Didn’t finish the job last year so taking one early was a relief. He was scraping and marking the whole way in and left a scrape trail 100 yds long. He didn’t go far but I could have tracked him by his stink. Things should be getting more exciting every day for the next few weeks. Good luck everybody. Be safe in those stands.
  11. Took the advice off the posts and fished marks in 85 to 95 fow most of morning. Patience paid off when the water settled down. Boated a fat brown and 2 matures. Only one laker and the skippies are still around. Took everything on green/white/black spoons and Sutton 88s. East/west trolls were best. Good weather and good company. Not many nice days like this left before hunting season.

  13. I had an experience today that caught me off guard and I'm trying to figure out how I should feel about it. I'm looking for opinions. A small piece of property (40 acres) I've hunted forever in Cattaraugus county was recently sold and posted. Not that uncommon these days. The property is small but it's convenient and close to other huntable properties. The posted sign said 'written permission only' and had a phone number. My hope was that it may be an investment property or even a lease situation becasue it was such a small piece of property, so I called. The guy calls me back and tells me that he has no intentions of letting anyone hunt the property but he marked the posted signs that way so people would call him so he could tell them to stay off the property. This is a done deal in my mind. I have no desire, or need, for access to this property. I have no hard feeling towards this guy or losing access to the property. What has caught me off guard and has had me thinking about it all day is if this guy is a jerk or a genius for marking his posted signs that way. Is it necessary to bait people into calling? I'm interested in your opinions and whether your looking at it from a property owner position or from the position of a hunter looking for permision.
  14. Sk8man is correct. All reputable ear plugs or muffs will have a NRR (noise reduction rating) on them. The NRR is the amount of decibels that they suppress. Subtract the NRR from the actual noise level and that is what you are exposed to while wearing them. The higher the NRR the better. Anything around NRR 30-33 is a pretty good start for something that isn’t custom for you. If you’re looking to measure noise levels, there is a free phone App called SLA Lite that you can download that does a pretty good job. Everyone should protect themself from noise.

  15. JimB, That was us out there today. You aren't kidding about the fog. One of those mornings when you end up in Canada if you didn't have a gps. We worked the same water and did 2 browns and 2 kings. We hooked up with the second just as you were picking up. Fog lifted and fish stopped biting. Green and purple stick bite today.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Nice !!!! I'd name that one Wilson!
