  1. You can always find lakers in 80 fow on the bottom
  2. Forgive me if I'm wrong but I don't believe the state sets migratory bird limits?
  3. I use extremely light action rods on both my riggers and boards on cayuga Sometimes I think it's too light as I'm hitting neutral quick for newbie fish fighters
  4. I can troll for 7 hours and burn 3 gallons with my etec. I think it's unfortunate they are done
  5. I think your opinion is in the majority
  6. It was a lot but it's a great feeling that in 10 years I have never turned the key more than once at the dock. I drive cheap used cars in exchange
  7. Oh yeah my repower 90 hp with rewire and controls was almost 12k in 2011
  8. You absolutely can catch lakers in the cold months. I would use brown streamers because the LT like gobies Second best bet imo would be late March through April in the same places you would see people trolling stick baits on surface
  9. Given what penalties you see handed out for hunting violations these days it isn't worth your time
  10. If I were you I'd drive a little extra to t falls. Just less of a hassle
  11. I love when lakers cruise up in like 5-10 fow. Put out my spring spread with boards and sticks and hold on
  12. Best value? get a 90 sea nymph gls put a brand new 90 hp and 10 hp kicker and deck it out with rod holders, riggers and electronics and every toy you want for under 30k
  13. My personal suggestion would buy an older hull and deck it out including a new motor
  14. Hi green A lot to unpack here You can flatline and have success in the colder months with surface diving baits. As the surface temp rises you will need to gain depth. 10 color lead and 300 copper can be your friend. I would suggest staying in 70-90 fow. If you have not gotten into vertacle jigging I would highly suggest it. Get yourself a drift sock and use it along with trolling motor on windy days. Theoretically with your setup you could use a bottom thumping rig with a heavy weight on a 3 way swivel
  15. Trolled yesterday 3 ft off the bottom in 100 ft ish 16 lakers in a little over 3 hours. Average was about 6 lbs. Was epic. Ran 10 color.. 300 copper... 2 3 color lead and didn't move them on silver fish
  16. The co2 style life jackets are really not uncomfortable
  17. I have a 19.5 and you honestly really have to pick your days. No way would I be fishing in true 3's and still have fun. It's really hard to maintain speed and if the current calls for u to troll into the waves it's a non stop battle all day
  18. Attach main line to release Send it down x feet Attach this to main line Send it rest of the way Fish eats the cheater it slides all the way down to the main line lure
  19. I use berkeley trout worms under a float
  20. There was a MAJOR current for cayuga this weekend maybe all the fleas moved to one area
  21. interesting i was out this weekend with 10lb on my rigger rods and didnt see a one... was between long point and the plant
