  1. I would like to thank the Old Man for sharing his spots. I ended up with catching and releasing 4 muskies the attached photo was the largest. Thanks again..
  2. Thanks guys. I managed to hook into one tonight at dusk right off Toms point. The Old Man comes through. No pics it fell off at the boat while I was waiting for the net man. He's out of practice.
  3. I currently on lake Chautauqua staying for the week. After two days of musky fishing I have yet to see a fish. I'm mostly a caster but have tried trolling. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  4. All the action that day was within 50 yards.
  5. A friend and I were out on friday Nov. 15th manage to boat 3 nice muskies I attached pic's of the two larger ones, and a cute small one. At one point we almost had a double header when my partner had a fish hooked in a figure 8 and I had one following my Double Dog for multiple 8's. I set down my rod , netted his fish and picked up my rod and the musky was still there starring at my lure. I couldn't get him to eat unfortunately, maybe that was a good thing because the net was all fouled up with my partners fish rolling around in it.. All fish were released clean to be caught another day.. PS The action all happened at the tail end of a major ( Moon Under Foot )
  6. I wish the Tranx was available in left handed. I use a combination of Shimano 401TE's , Curado, and a few Abu Garcia's C3 series..All on St. Croix rods.. I'm an all day caster
  7. Thats interesting a few weeks ago I spent a week on the Saint Lawrence near Cedar Point. Every day a good size northern would swim in front of our cabin with his head out of the water.. One day he was bobbing up and down exposing half of his body.. Strangest thing I ever seen. I've seen Muskies swim on the surface, but they were more horizontal this Pike was almost vertical. I think he was there to taunt me, because every day I failed to catch a Musky.
  8. What a good idea. Can't wait to get on Otisco this year. I will be heading up there soon. Congrats and great pics.
  9. The Pike smashed a 7" Phantom softtail in a Shad color. I was on the north/west side of the island off the cliffs in about 20' of water.
  10. Just got home from a week of hard musky hunting on the St. Lawrence. I fished for muskies all week both casting and trolling. More Casting than trolling. I hit the humps on the 40 acre shoal and Ant Island every day along with others. NO muskies, but lots of Pike. I couldn't believe I didn't contact one Muskie. I threw Double 10's, Phantoms, Bulldawgs, and Shallow Raiders. The Perch colored shallow raider 10" worked the best using a Twitch and Rip action. I attached a photo of a nice Pike I caught near Carlton Island. Also where are the smallmouth this time of year. My boat partner fished for smallies all week he caught a few , but not the numbers we expected. The quality was there but not the numbers. We had a tough time catching enough for a meal.. I will admit I was defeated by the Elusive Musky.....Maybe next year.
  11. Figures the guy who answers the phone was probably furloughed..
  12. How about coming back from Canadian waters.. Do I have to call the U.S. Customs? Or do I just run for it...
  13. I would think they prefer live ones..
  14. I would be nice to get 12 to 15 inch suckers...
  15. Have you used them with any success.
  16. I was wondering if anyone uses live bait ( Suckers ) for musky in the St. Lawrence. I have never tried this but it looks fun and adds another option letting one hang while your casting.. Im not even sure where one would get suckers in the 1000 island region.
  17. thanks for the input Ronix51, every little bit helps piece the puzzle together..
  18. Here is the official response from the Canada Border Services Agency.. All recreational boaters are required to present themselves upon their arrival in Canada as per the Customs Act and the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act. This includes all foreign boaters entering Canada, as well as private boaters who depart Canada, enter foreign waters, and subsequently return to Canada. This obligation exists regardless of their activities while outside of Canada or their planned activities while in Canada. Arrival in Canada occurs when the pleasure craft crosses the international boundary into Canadian waters. The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has revised its reporting requirements for boaters. Please view the following Web page for the most up to date information: http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/media/facts-faits/096-eng.html Upon entering Canadian waters private boaters who qualify can present themselves to the CBSA by calling the Telephone Reporting Centre (TRC) at 1-888-226-7277. As noted above all other private boaters, including vessels carrying foreign nationals other than United States (U.S.) citizens or U.S. permanent residents, must proceed directly to a designated marine telephone reporting site and place a call to the TRC in order to obtain CBSA clearance. Should you require additional assistance with your inquiry, we recommend that you contact the Border Information Service (BIS). You can access the BIS line free of charge throughout Canada by calling 1-800-461-9999. If you are calling from outside Canada, you can access the BIS line by calling either 204-983-3500 or 506-636-5064 (long-distance charges will apply). If you call during regular business hours (8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday to Friday, except holidays), you can speak to an officer by pressing “0†after you have made a selection of one of the 4 menu options. Thank you for contacting the Canada Border Services Agency.
  19. I will do some bondy jigging while my partner drop shots for small mouth..
  20. Thanks muskiedreams , Im sure I'll be calling that number a few time during the week of my trip to the Larry.
  21. Is there any protocols when crossing into Canadian waters. I read some old posts on a different forum the mentioned " Calling Inward". Is this something I would have to do? If so does anyone know the number..? I apologize but I don't want to get my boat seized for not knowing the rules... thanks in advance...
