  1. The saudis and Russians are in a battle over production. US is a big player now as opposed to even ten years ago. It’s not economic Jihad, it’s the market correcting itself. Trump has very little to do with it but it’s not going to affect the US long-term as long as we can produce, oil. It’s just a fact. ten years ago H1N1 was much more severe. There was no panic. Leads me to believe a bit of this is political. Just my opinion. I have two very close friends who are ER doctors and a good friend who is a cardiologist. All three agree that this is all hysteria. These are medical doctors. Being proactive certainly helps. It’s certainly one thing if you are elderly or have a weak immune system. But That applies to at all times. As for me, prices for air travel has fallen so I’ll take asvantage of it as I come up from Florida to fish in New York about 13 times a year. Maybe I’ll make it 20 this year!
  2. I would highly recommend Sodus point. Myself, My wife, and my three kids come up from Florida about 10 times per year. I have a boat up there and spend as much time doing family stuff outside of fishing as I do fish. The restaurants are great and good people around. There are homes to rent and you can walk to almost everything.
  3. I prefer the aurora lites. I can break them down and get them out of the way when we aren’t fishing on the boat.
  4. I have a 32 ft Chris craft Catalina for sale. It’s at keenest marine. Spent 5k in engines in 2018 but upgraded for 2019. Bought the boat for 17k. Make an offer. It runs great and is a great boat in rough water. I’ll sell for 7k.
  5. I am selling three magnum metalz electrics with dual rod holders. All with the 30 inch booms. Used one season (2019). Also two Magnum Metalz triple rod holders. 1250 takes all.
  6. I’m an attorney and Although I’m not licensed in New York all I do is insurance related to Law. If anyone has questions as to coverages and what it all means feel fee to message me. I’ll be more than happy to assist or answer questions.
  7. I’m in Sodus and have 4 twelve pound balls
  8. I’m confused. The filter is turning but not unscrewing, but then screws on tight?
  9. What’s your price range? I rent a house from a guy in greig street that has two great rentals. Bay front facing the lake. If not try the lodge on Grieg street. Both are great options
  10. Where Are you located?
  11. That’s what I thought. I’d stick with a split shot or two 15feet ahead of the spoon. Ones you get out past 15-20 feet you can go to sections of lead core. Problem with leadcore shallower than that, unless you’re doing one color, is it will snag on inside turns.
  12. I started taking my five year old out two years ago. Now he’s seven and my three year old loves it as well. I used to charter and was away from it for ten years. When I chartered my young son at the time loved it and now he’s 18. He still fishes all the time. It’s great when the kids get into it and want to go with you. It is an amazing experience to fish with your kids.
  13. When I first saw this I assumed the author was referring to flatlines spoons for brown trout when using spoons in lieu of stick baits. I prefer on in water less than ten feet and two for water between ten and twenty feet. If you really want to get deeper than that I’d consider using leadcore or cooper. Real chaos can you clarify what you were referring to?
  14. 1 or 2 size 4 split shot 15 feet from spoon
  15. I just went through the same thing. I have run scotty’ and cannons. I opted to rig my new boat with magnum metalz. I spent a lot of time and research and I to go with them. I like the all metal frame, the configuration options, and the low profile. I was willing to give on the auto stop . I really loved my cannons too but for my liking, I chose the magnum metalz’. Not trying to persuade anyone one way or the other, just giving you info as to what I did
  16. Looks like you’re at Arney’s. My brother is there as well. That was my first LO boat too and it served me well. Nice rig
  17. Sk8man....well said. You were a bit more eloquent than I but the same sentiments here
  18. I was away from the Lo fishing for about ten years then got back into it heavily last year. When I had my spoon business and charter I never ran a fish hawk but I was in the water daily from May through September. Locating and catching fish was never a problem for me. The fishhawk is a great tool but often times people become so reliant on temperature that it works against them. I have caught salmon out of temperature more frequently than some would believe. My point is that if you run the fishhawk as your sole tool to locate fish, it can, and eventually will, work against you. If you use it as a tool to assist it is well worth the money.
