  1. I have had luck running spoons behind the hotspot type triangle flashers. Very little drag and about a 6ft leader of fluorocarbon to the spoon When running deeper. I also attach them to the ball, and run the spoon 10-15 feet back. Higher up you run, further back from the ball.
  2. I will take it today, early evening. Where are you located? I'm in Hilton. 729-6317
  3. Tied some flies with an eagle claw treble, normal fly size. Hooks were nice and sharp, BUT they were bending down and out slightly and we were losing fish on them. Retied with some good stainless trebles I had in a box and stopped losing fish. Eagle claws were too wimpy (thin) for the Kings.
  4. Call garmin. Sounds like a processor problem. Maybe something about the rudder angle calculator. Unfortunately I read they are going to no longer support the TR1 soon.

    I actually tried one many years ago from that exact spot. One bite, spit it out, tossed it and the one in the freezer. Tasted like the river smells- like chemicals. We did have a blast. Caught many.
  6. We went to Dunkirk for the afternoon and found good temps though erratic at times, marked pretty much nothing , 60-95ft. Hooked a small one on the way in. No bait pods , no marks at all. Girls at the launch said people are out 90-100ft to find any. I'll try again but I'll make sure I have good info first. Any help would be appreciated.
  7. Did the same thing to my toe in the exact same spot last year. Knife was sticking straight up and down, luckily had my sneakers on and only about 3/8 penetration. Nice little divit in skin now. We were off Sandy fishing the same depths. Small one and a 17lb. Not as much action as you, we got out late also. Our temps were 50-60ft. Small on spoon and bigger on FF. We went to Erie yesterday and it was terrible fishing.. Water too warm off Buffalo, 79 down 62ft., and no schools off Dunkirk AT ALL!! Found some good temps there though, caught 1 and shook off at the boat. Didn't even care. Fishing reports for buffalo seem to be bogus. They say Barcelona is hot but who knows.
  8. Had a motor rebuilt at Golden Alternator on Elmgrove Rd. Nothing over 110 according to them.
  9. Does the Garmin have all the necessary accessories?
  10. Had a small cluster off sandy Creek on a wire rig Friday. That was it.
  11. I was out of sandy in a 19ft starcraft. If it was me, I didn't see you anyways. there was also a 22ft out there.
  12. Get to IBay early, line forms quickly and heard people are parking every which way because there's water in 1/2 the lot. A little water never hurt anyone, well most.
  13. Golden Alternator on Elmgrove road also will.
  14. I think it's been done. They probably spawned where ever they could find that 41-43 temp whether in the river, creeks or lake shore line. Another screwy year.
  15. Still have ice flowing down the river.Hopefully gone by this weekend. If so, they should start running hard. Verified at a bait shop yesterday.
  16. I was out last sat and they were almost nonexistent off sandy creek in 125-200 feet. I do use flea flicker and blood run on my rigger poles, but my wire dipsies were coming up almost clean. non on rigger cables. Picked up 3 kings lost 2. Fished 47 deg to 52 where ever it was found in above mentioned depth. They are darkening a little now. Maybe try some 55-60 deg also.
  17. If longer leads off the riggers (25ft or more) are producing fish, IMO, probably pretty safe to run it. Just set it slightly above the riggers.
  18. Might want to print out a rigger wire angle chart also. calculates approx . true depth relevant to cable angle blowback. Google images and you'll find it. When you're in temp on your probe you can than set your dipsies accordingly.
  19. Went out Sandy Monday and the fleas are there also. They were mixed with the cotton and were a major P.I.T.A. to get off the line . 2 salmon one 16 the other 9.5 ,175 feet both on FF one rigger parked at 130( current blow back ,actual depth was about 105-44deg) and the other a dipsey with UV flasher and green atomic fly out 175 on 2 setting. Lost one also on same dipsey set. The dipsey fish was definitely out of temp. 16 lb female had eggs in her. Strange?
  20. Call tom at east fork marina, 2 min from launch. I'm pretty sure he'll let you park it there for a modest fee. Nice guy and one of the top mechanics around. Might have an empty slip for the night if you're lucky.
  21. I have picked up a couple on green uv rotating flasher with green atomic fly on a dipsey rod and I have been having good success with a 6-8ft cheater attached to cable and the main fish line with a rubber band located 8-10 feet above bottom spoon. I use a 3in spoon for the cheater similar in color to the larger bottom spoon. Bottom spoon is 15-20 feet back from ball. I also tend to put a rotating triangle flasher 4-6 feet back attached to the ball's rear loop, added attraction that works often.
  22. try the ACBS, google . Old wood boat club, they have a classified section.
