  1. Sounds like a few members are able to help out - good to see the comradery amongst our community of members. Last week I was at Doc's tackle shop in Honeoye - they had a decent supply of 100 pack primers and Triple-7 pellets on the shelf if you're looking to stock up. 8960 Main St Honeoye, NY 14471 (585) 229-2277
  2. A good video on torpedo divers from a yak... IMHO in your case, stick with using clips, rather than the redi-rig set up. I've been using the Redi-Rig aet up for years, and found out it works alot better in a peddle yak because you need forward momentum to keep things from getting tangled up. In the video he's using church clips, I use OR-16 clips. Either style will work - but be warned you will loose a torpedo or two, usually it happens when connecting or disconnecting the weight, not durning trolling or when fighting a fish. I have different sized divers, and try to avoid the heavy ones unless I need to get deep - they do put a good bend in the rod, and the lure action isn't transfered back to the rod tip.

  3. I have a Hobie mirage drive and spend a lot of time on various finger lakes targeting trout / Salmonids, you can search my posts for more info on how I'm rigged and my experiences. Don't see a fish finder in your pictures - definitely at a disadvantage if you don't have one. Even a cheap portable unit with the 'ducer hanging over the side will give you a better understanding of what's down below you. Search for "kayak" in the forums - lots of posts and info out there. Here's a good post with some good info. https://www.lakeontariounited.com/fishing-hunting/topic/89553-kayak-trolling-help/?tab=comments#comment-651832
  4. 65` @ 64 feet !?!?!? Wow - Lake still thinks it's summertime.
  5. One thing to remember - this is sentencing from his conviction in June... not another case of being caught. Sent from my SM-G981U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. I'm guessing someone is a John Deere fan based on the color ?. Cool set-up

  9. Canadice lakers can humble you pretty quickly; there are days I can have non-stop action, and there are other I'll go 3-4 hours without a single hit. Can't say if any one time or location is best on that lake, but it's small enough to move around to find bait balls and marks. I bring along a large assortment of jigs and blade baits, and change-up things if until I find what they're interested in. In no particular order,: PK lure flutter spoons PK lure Panic jig Bite booster blade baits Sweedish pimples Kastmaster jigging spoons 1 - 2 oz saltwater jigs And pretty much anything else I can find that's heavy with hooks on it. I fish out of a Hobie kayak. All the Finger Lakes are fishable with the right safety gear and a good mind about you. North \ South winds can make the lakes too rough for a kayak, but if you watch the forecast, you'll be fine. Also found that based on winds, (for example) T-falls is too rough, but Sheldrake or Deans on Cayuga is relatively flat; so don't be afraid to drive around to check different locations.

  10. Never fished the reservoir before - Any more details ? See that it's only 50 ft deep - does it stratify ?
  11. Gotta love the look of those older True Vaule Tinnys. Sent from my SM-G981U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Interesting reading. Patent Images (uspto.gov)
  13. Lot 4 - are those weights or floats on the release ?
  14. Launched the kayak out of Woodville this AM @ 6 AM - only a few other trailers in the parking lot - thinking all the Trout fishermen launched out of Vine Valley based on the results of the Tournament Last Week Saw the following temps with the Fishhawk td, so worked around 35-45 FOW with a mix of deep diver sticks and spoons using torpedo divers to different depths. Stayed on the south drop off , and never moved north of rock cut the entire morning. Ended up with a 18.5" brown that came home and was grilled for dinner and a 23-odd" laker that was released. Lost another one after a quick run and it spit the hook. Lots of "clutter" in the upper 15-20 feet of water - but saw few good sized bait balls, that I could actually feel the lines hitting the bait as I passed through them. Was off the water by 11.
