    Great Lakes Lures will be there. We are usually in the NE corner area. Look for our banner hanging from the ceiling. Hope to see you all there, stop by and say hi once the initial rush is over. Also for all LOU members, if you can wait till the initial rush is over to come purchase from us introduce yourself as a LOU member and I will give you an exclusive price discount for this event. Thanks everyone! Sent from my VK410 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. The 2 chartreuse taped lures are Kausch #12's made by Great lakes lure Co. Now called #35. The one right bellow them is a Kausch #9 also by Great Lakes Lures. We no longer make the #9. Sent from my VK410 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  8. I just posted an update on their Facebook page. Its pretty lengthy and im getting ready to leave for work, but I will try and get an update posted here tonight. The FB page is " National Laketrout Derby on Seneca Lake." Jason Sent from my VK410 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. A lot of folks have experienced change over the last 20 plus years due to laws governing the use of voc's and restrictions against them. That said, paint is not what it used to be. There are some urethane based paints that can be more durable, but in the not so distant future, those paints will soon be phased out as well. So now you see a trend, not just among folks like us, but automotive industry is also stepping into water based paints. There are plenty of body shops and custom shops you can find who use only water based paints. Its a developing trend that im sure will soon become a norm. Now with that said, its probably best to deal with and accept the fact it will still change and not such a bad idea to experiment with it. Sent from my VK410 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. I use Createx water based paint. I have a video on YouTube where I fold over a painted lure, pound it with a hammer, UN fold it, pound it flat again with a hammer and the paint holds up. I find that cure time between processes and temperature are key. Humidity is also a factor. I also wire wheel every single blank that gets primer. Be careful if you choose to wire wheel lure blanks... I've lost skin doing it. Sent from my VK410 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. I just read Sk8mans statement and he pretty much summed it up... In the past, start time was set by the fact that registration ends at 430 am. It took them till 6 to process late registrations. Therefore start time was 6am. Now that we are using email and other modern avenues those processes will be more streamlined and a 5am start time ( much more desired than 6) is now possible. In the future I don't see this time changing... I don't see any reason for a 1201 for instance. Sent from my VK410 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  14. Seth Green rigs are very addicting, especially handlining! Its an artform all its own that takes lots of skill to master. Congratulations and great job! I love to hear folks getting back into rig fishing, especially like to see your passing that skill on to your young man, congratulations to you! Sent from my VK410 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
