  1. Head over to Traditions Archery in Suburban plaza in Henrietta. The best bow on the market for this situation is a Mission Craze or Riot. the craze adjusts from 15-30in draw length and from 19-70 lbs draw weight. It can grow with her, it's very affordable and most Importantly they will set it up properly and be there should you need them in the future for help, modifications or upgrades.

  2. Just talked to my friend that fishes that all the time and said the ice is good and the fishing has been good.  When I was up there a couple weeks ago with him the giant gills and crappie were hitting real good.  Waxworms on a green jig were better than anything.  A few small pickerel were caught but mainly panfish.

  3. Its not that uncommon!  Late born fawns will often come into estrus very late in the first year if the conditions are right.  I've seen some chasing activity in the past couple weeks up here in NY as well.  As long as there is enough nutritional value in the food source they are on to support the hormone change, it can happen.

  5. Thanks for the reply!

    Yeah, I really don't want to try and splice it. In a perfect world I'd be able to find a patch cable of any length that has a male end (like the back of the unit) that I could screw the existing cable on and off of. The other end would be a female end I could fix to the back of the unit. I wouldn't know where to begin to find or even look for a cable like that. I think if there was something like that it would work. The collar on the existing cable is good, its just the part that recieves that collar on the unit that broke. I can push it on there and stuff a tackle box behind it and it will work, but rough days it just falls off. We use the GPS for speed, so it's kind of important.

  6. The black collar shown in this picture (the 7 pin port) has cracked and broken off. Anyone have a good idea for fixing this? I know it looks like it is just a screw in part that could be replaced. However, I contacted Garmin and they said they don't make the replacement part for this so the only thing I could do is buy a new unit. That's not really an option right now. I was thinking about fixing the cable permanently to the back of the unit with some plastic weld but I still need to be able to take it off the dash after fishing. Is splicing this kind of cable to put a quick disconnect in even possible? Any other suggestions?




  7. Haven't heard any reports either but I'm sure there will be safe ice somewhere. There were guys out on Honeoye today off of California Ranch. Do you know if Art's is still open or anywhere else to get bait in the area?

  8. It was a quick fix and only about $15 more than the cap itself. 3 screws, a pair of hose clamps, and a ground wire and it was replaced. It makes it easy when you can just simply remove a panel off the inside wall and get at the fill hose clamps. 10min job

  9. Does anyone in the Rochester area know where I could find a deck fill gas cap like this one? I just need the screw in part....yeah, it got left on the gunwale at the gas station and fell off somewhere down the road :$ I guess I should have screwed the keeper chain back down a long time ago, but I didn't.


  10. Nick, we are out right now at Ibay and really only 2-4's. But warm water....68degrees 90 foot down!

    My normal fishing partner is in the 20' whaler near you, if you get a chance could you hit him up and maybe key him in to whats working for you? He's struggling to get a hit (isn't everyone?). He's probably on ch 73. Boat name is the bahtenda.

  11. If you had 300 feet out and the diver hit bottom and you read your depth finder and it said 78 ft, what was the true of depth of the diver over 200 feet behind your boat? It should be deeper than 78 ft

    [ Post made via Android ] Android.png

    No, I was watching close and as soon as it ticked I knew the depth. So even over 200fow it still would be down only 78ft.

    [ Post made via Android ] Android.png

    I think he was referring to the slope of the bottom. As in, if you hit bottom with your wire rod (which is somewhere near 200' behind the boat, you were reading the graph 200' south of where the line hit bottom. On that note, unless there is a crazy drop off in Sodus 200' isn't going to make more than a 1' or so difference in depth. That make sense?

  12. What a great fish of a lifetime - congrats!

    Brian - the DEC can age lake trout by scales (highly unreliable especially with older fish) but I know they can also look at bone structures (possibly called otoliths) in their inner ears which I think can grow like rings on a tree. The only way they could do this would be to cut into the fish and I don't think you're going to want that until the Derby is over...lol.

    Great job on your fish bud,

    - Chris

    That's right! Otoliths are actually round(ish) calcifications in the "ear". They have to extract them and then slice them very thin and count the growth rings. That would be the best way to age one. It may take some extra effort but you could probably get at them from inside the mouth since you are planning on doing a skin mount.

    Congrats on that awesome fish!


  13. For a marina with experienced fisherman in the bay that are targeting stripers in the fall start contacting Marinas in Deale, MD or around the NAS Pax River base area. Lots of stiper fisherman out of there. The season ends in early-mid December but that late season is a great time to catch the big ones. Tom Heacock (Foolish Pleasure Charters-410 804-8511) is a great guy to talk to. He has recently downsized his operation but he is very knowledgeable.
