    Owasco Lake
  1. It's always a good time to go fishing
  2. Nice color on those lakers. Are they wild or is that just a wintertime coloration? Emeryg - Is the small fish in the livewell a Rainbow?
  3. I've seen the different colored meats on Owasco. My understanding is that comes from eating Mysis shrimp. Cool that you caught one with something other then Alewife in it, I haven't. I did once pull 2 rubber worms out of one.
  4. As larva they bury in the substrate, kinda anchor with their tails, stick their heads up, and filter feed. So that's when and how they can be killed, the "treatment" is put in the streams end to end. As it flows downstream, they filter it out. Their mouth is totally different during this time, and you'd think they were baby eels. Their adult form is the parasitic version we are familiar with.
  5. Bass run large, but tend to go offshore chasing mooneyes especially in the summer. I have caught some big ones, but rarely on purpose. The spring is the only time they act like bass. Good luck if you go, let us know how you make out.
  6. Thanks guys. I've been fishing Owasco for about 5 years and that's the first non-laker trout I've caught. So I guess the fish gods thought I was due.
  7. They are less then 2 bucks at Dicks. May not qualify as local though.
  8. Bigfoot is real!.....accurate with his knowledge. Do some research on Otsego Lake and you'll see what DEC prevented from happening on Owasco. They learned a lesson about how Walleye and Non-Laker Trout get along down in Cooperstown.
  9. Thanks for the response. I have marked horizontal bait very infrequently on Owasco, and when I have seen it they are deep and not as vast as the blobs (Alewife). Always on the Southend too. So good luck finding a creek with access, on the right night, to catch the relic population still in there.
  10. I've heard that smelt mark horizontally on the graph. Compared to the blobs alewife show up as. Anyone know if there is truth to that?
  11. Sorry to say I don't know what size they are, but get the smallest size available. When you mark a bait ball just drop into it. One thing of note is that you do have to give a little hookset, they don't just hook themselves.
  12. Sabiki Rigs are less then 2 bucks at Dicks. They actually work!
  13. I placed an order at Finger Lakes Tackle for my brothers Christmas present. A week before the holiday it had not arrived, so I called the number on the website, to check in. I spoke to someone who was extremely nice, told me he had a minor issue, and the order had already shipped. Before I even called he had placed nearly 50% extra spoons in the order and it had already shipped, showed up the next day. Even though you've all probably already ordered from them. I couldn't let that go without giving Finger Lakes Tackle a thank you.
  14. Guff - Very cool idea with the buoy. Are you using a lighter jig then me perhaps? I'm at 1oz.
