  1. took the day off, clean fish clean boat etc
  2. 1.8-2.0 or so. slow in the cold water
  3. Capt, I will definitely take you up on that invitation in the next couple of weeks. If you PM with contact info, Ill give you a call. I really appreciate it.
  4. We went 13 for 13 all sticks blue over gray and black over silver awesome day and it's only gonna get better.
  5. nice job. We got a couple on plastics but the other few came on fatheads. We will regroup and go back probably next when it starts to warm up again. Are you hard anchoring or drifting
  6. I guess right now my biggest question is if I have them hooked up right. I know the 998 is but both units are supposed to be linked together. When I go to settings to pick which transducers the units are receiving from it shows 958 bow and 998 helm. Do both units need to be set to 998 helms transducers. Because if the 958 isn't than I don't get nav charts and waypoints only depth. If they should be set to read from their own ie the 958 is set to 958bow and the 998 is set to 998helm then I have a problem with the 958 somewhere. I hate to sound like a moron but this stuff is way to over my head at this point in my life.
  7. You know Les, I kinda thought that was you driving by us, when I saw the Penn Yan. I was gonna wave but ...oh well next time. Not that I am happy that you did so poorly but at least I don't feel like a clueless moron. I am just hoping it was the sun the messed things up. I would be interested to know how all the other guys did. It didn't seem like they were hauling them in left and right either. Probably gonna pound out some tomorrow or Thurs in Lake O
  8. Humminbird help So I buy this boat a couple of years ago with great electronics on it . 998 and 958 Humminbird, with a Minnkota Terrova and Ipilot. I have most of it down as far as how to use everything after trial and error over the past couple of years. But I know I don't have it all down. I was wondering if there is anyone in the Rochester area that either works on Humminbirds or has a vast working knowledge that I could hook up and pick their brain and to make sure I doing things right. Thanks in advance
  9. Canandaigua report Hit it yesterday with the 12 to 15 other boats out there. Struuugglled to say the least. Fished mostly the 20' range. Met a guy and his kid in a small blue green row boat, can't remember his LOU name Id like to find out how he made out. I was in the red Lund. Send me PM.
  10. Is all of Hughes open or just the ramp to the outlet? Thanks
  11. My cousin lives down there and sent me a pic yesterday. Good amount of snow and ice on the ramp from the plows. Bring a shovel if you go
  12. January troll on the "O" So we hit the O out of Bear Creek yesterday and trolled the 8' to 10' range and absolutely crushed the browns. A few cookie cutters but mainly 6lb and better with a nice 12.5lb. However, equipment failure after equipment failure kept the excitement down. We lost a monster fish that fought like a king. It surfaced right after it hit but then screamed taking about 100 feet of line before turning towards the boat then making a ninety and pulling another bunch of line and broke off. I was sick. Never saw it but figure it was a big steelie or who knows maybe a king. Ive never trolled this time of year so I don't know other than trout what is lurking. Anyway a mix bag of sticks did the trick, clown color being the best that brought all the big ones. The fog set in and made it a pain in the ... , especially when there was one guy out there not running his lights. Unbelievable. Then when he was all done headed to the launch on plane. Visibility was about 100' at best. So all in all in a great time. Non stop action. Can't wait till March.
