  1. X3, most of the time I run a chute copper, sometimes one off each side. One thing I do believe in is the free sliders with flutter spoons, usually Evil Eyes. You cover more of the upper part of the zone and I get a lot of steelies and later cohos with them.
  2. Meanwhile back to our original problem being Cuomo. I'll throw this out there in the fact that I just can't understand how anybody that considers themselves a sportsman would even slightly consider voting for him.
  3. I think Marc is a great all around guy and a great candidate, I'm in a boardering county from where he's from. There's two problems I see, one he's realarively young considering and not many people know him other than his area and two as stated previously, Cuomo has the NYC area in his pocket and that's a lot of votes

    I put the Helix 7 on my boat this year and very happy. I opted not to get side scan though..

    That's how it all starts, with a small boat Best of luck to you and hope to see you out next year.
  7. Low Baller I don't think you're crazy. I do that quite a few times a year just to get an extra couple of days fishing for steelhead in the river. People think I'm crazy too though.
  8. I'll throw my house, truck and boat in. Sk8man is right on, maybe a small King but from the picture I'd say Coho.

    Rescue off oak orchard !?

    I believe they will try for them all but at the very least the popular ones for the area you're in. East end 68-72 but with scanning radios should be able to pick up any. CG will also broadcast bad weather. Keep eyes to the west, if it starts to look bad a quick check for radar on a smart phone will help also. Lady O can rear her ugly head real fast if she wants too.

    I have only fished the east end and there are plenty of times when charter captains will issue bad weather approaching broadcasts even telling how much time before it should hit yet they are ignored. I would dare say it's the same on the entire length of the lake. They may not tell you their secrets of how and where they're fishing but they do look out for others safety and if they say it, believe it and quit.

    X2 on this. This was a tragedy in that a life was lost for no reason other than really really bad judgement and I agree with stupidity. Maybe at one time we've all done things that we shouldn't but no matter how you put it they were stupid except we lived for another day and hopefully learned. More than once I've seen boats that had no business being out as we were running back in. The sad thing is it will happen again just a matter of when. No fish or anything for that matter is worth it. Be safe today so you can fish tomorrow.

    Nice going on boxing out, too bad you have to leave. We're gambling on the lake laying down for thur and fri, keeping our fingers crossed and coming up.
