  1. Its is for sure so far. Not many Bows and Browns caught each year over 20 and at that point every additional pound is exponentially tougher. Kings over 40 are getting more rare every year as well. Special fish for sure!
  2. My vote for fish of the year, I guess we will have to wait and see. Congrats Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. What depth of water were you working? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Good for you Matt. Hope you had a "trip". That kind of day makes for a lot of repeats and referrals. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. Starts right up and runs perfect. After about 15 to 30 minutes it shuts off like you turned off the key. For the next ten minutes you turn the key and it starts up and dies. Again and again and again. After fifteen to twenty times she fires and runs and never quits again for the rest of the trip. Swear at that point she would troll to china. Air, spark or fuel? Have tried all but again I just fire the main till she's back online and she is good for the rest of the day. Have had some pretty good techs check it out but so far nothing has fixed it.

  6. Great morning out of Sandy. Good temp and pearl green water in 15ft. Action all morning with browns, small kings and a nice bow. Lost a big fish that broke off a j9. Chartreuse Rapalas off the boards and black and silver. 28's off the riggers. The rains made for a great mudline east although west of the creek had great color as well.

  7. By Memorial Day it should be just like Easter normally is. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Proof is in the pudding. Probably not many others fishing that water but it makes perfect sense. Nice to see sandy out fish the western end. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. My Mink caught a slob today, congrats! How did the other Sandy boats fair? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. That's awesome! Great fish and great report. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. Using the Heavy Shot. At $27 for 5 they arent cheap but they will definately buy you some extra distance
  12. Thank you Rob Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Captains also fish for their living and in many cases pay their mates. Let them know you will work for tips or even split the tip with the captain. If you are personable, can drive, and are good with people Im sure someone will help you out. Get your name and number out there and let people know you can work with little or no notice.
  14. My daughter (15) shot a nice longbeard at first light this morning. My middle son (16) did all the calling. Great morning, sent a pic to Legacy, hoping he will post it for me.
  15. Can't beat that! Go get em. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  16. Good luck to all going out with their kids in the morning. Always a fun morning. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  17. Sure, no reason not to. Depending on the depth your working and your lead lengths adding a little weight will put that lure in a different spot than one without.
  18. Slide divers are the only dipsys I run. Good supply at gander mountain. As far as I'm concerned slide divers are to dipsys what spin drs are to dodgers, the perfect replacement. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  19. twenty years ago my mom and dad were cod fishing stellwagen bank. Jigging with 36oz norwegian jigs and my dad caught "bottom". Bottom started to move. Ended up with a 136lb Halibut. Had a hell of a time getting it in the boat. Used to love the early season fishing growing up in Mass. Big cod, Wolffish, Mackeral etc. Fond memories.
  20. Cant wait! Going to be a great season. Going to throw the last breast from last year in the smoker this weekend.
  21. Overall Im not sure about all the changes, I liked the original format. Chances of a boat out of Sandy catching a winning spring king are very small. Find it hard to believe that prize structure affects the amount of entries. "gee I have never signed up before, but now that lakers and bows dont count Im in!" ???????? Either way Im looking forward to the Derby and hope to take some of his money. Hope other Sandy boats fair well also. Going to have to chase the early bight, not having a weigh station for ten miles in either direction kind of ruins the evening trips.
