  1. I will be out tonight if the wind dies down a bit and again in the morning [ Post made via Android ]
  2. I used my predator hunting light with a red lense and it didn't seem to spook them like the solid white light did
  3. I may be on canadice in the evening depending on how late I get out of class
  4. We have had quite a few pike come out of honeoye these past years, some upwards of 50''
  5. Looking to rig my tin can for some trolling. I'm a college kid so moneys tight. specifically I'm looking for -clamp on type downriggers -downrigger poles/reels. -leadcore/dipsey setups rigged -seth green rig -sturdy clamp on rod holders or ones that I can mount on the side (has no gunwhales) thanks alot guys
  6. Only on hemlock? I've never caught nor seen one so that'd be pretty cool
  7. Thanks for the advice Rippin', do you pick up land locks in either lakes consistently?
  8. I'm looking to replace my old blown 88 johson 30 horse tiller for my 88 sea nymph backtroller. I have found 2 motors close to home for reasonable prices and was wondering if anyone on here had some insight on these motors. Any help would be appreciated. http://rochester.craigslist.org/boa/2909989786.html http://rochester.craigslist.org/boa/2942690841.html thanks
  9. Are they required while using the electric motor? Yup. If you are under power, and in a boat under 21' you need one until May. As for the question about catching things trolling slow, run jointed rapalas, sutton spoons, and kwikfish for other species. We do it trolling lakers on Lake Ontario and catch other species of trout and salmon fishing lakers. Thanks for clearing and for the advice Gambler
  10. Are they required while using the electric motor?
  11. This was our 3rd time out trolling ever, and yes we do use a depth finder. So far only lakers but would like to try for some other species when this wind lets up and we can get out again. Question, can you pick up other species while trolling slow for lakers (1.5ish) or are we better off speeding up a bit to around 2.2 ish so we can still pick up lakers as well as picking up bows and browns perhaps?
  12. bigger one from yesterday at 28.5''
  13. got out today for a couple hours for my friend and I's second attempt at trolling for trout. First time we landed 1 measley laker on a downrigger. Today we landed a couple nice lakers all on a meat rod because we kept donating rigger weights to the bottom of the lake . Finally think we're starting to get the hang of this trolling deal but still have a lot more to learn. Gonna give it a go again tomorrow afternoon if ya see some kids in an old starcraft that'll be us. one we kept for the grill
  14. 17 is allowed now still 10hp max. I'd say you might be alright in the wind tomorow those lakes are relatively well protected from the wind
  15. I'd say it'd be worth the trip. Had good luck recently
  16. 2005 or newer, looking for an etec but will look at other models. Have 2005 honda 9.9 fourstroke for partial trade along with a 2005 lund SSV 16 or cash if need be
  17. 58 grain vmax at 3800 fps or so right in the chest will drop em dead every time
  18. for the effective range of a 22 you're better off using a shotgun loaded with bb's or t or better yet buckshot. You'd be surprised how far they will reach out with the correct choke tube
  19. 62 grain tax or a swift scirroco will do just fine when put in the right place [ Post made via Android ]
  20. Name: Zack Location: Honeoye Home Port: Honeoye lake Boat Name/Type: "SS Tilapia" 16" sea nymph back troller I fish for: fun ================== Hello all, I've been lurking around the site for quite some time and figured I'd finally sign up and contribute some of my learnings and hopefully learn a ton more about fishing. I'm 19 and have been fishing for as long as I can remember along with hunting. I spend a ton of time on the water (up to 60 days on the water as of last week this year) targetting everything from panfish and trout to bass and our elusive fingerlakes walleye. I'm looking forward to partaking in some of the discussions on here and learning as much as I can. Here are a few pics of this years catch some eyes couple gills and an eye from honeoye smally from canadice
  21. I'd really like to see this. How'd you pick this one up?
