  1. Haha not yet, it was a very good day. Let’s just say that
  2. Beat cut bait I have run in a while, boys better stock up the meat bite is here and only gonna getting crazier. I have gone thru as many as 30 strips in a day so don’t be left without any meat
  3. Ok from the rigger ball back I like to keep my leads short, no more than 20’ but as little as 5’ back from ball. Now for flasher fly leads it depends on what they want, sometimes I run the fly 24” back from flasher others I run 16” but rule of thumb for me is twice the length of the flasher, so an 8” flasher I have a 16” lead to my fly and so on
  4. Yes it’s the carbon 14 spoon by moonshine or Dreamweaver I speak of
  5. Anything with Green Dots has been killing it, carbons early and then green dots and uv as sun gets higher. We have been keeping leads short off riggers like less than 15’, f/f has been a 3-6’ leader
  6. Sounds like you have a plan all setup only thing I would change is starts point, I would setup in 60 and troll north til you get but which could be between 60-100fow, we played 105 all day Saturday and had a pretty steady bite from the to the nose
  7. Can check with Rigged or Nick Rusin to see if he has any available.
  8. Hey did you ever think that maybe he works for a charter captain such as myself, and I am switching out some gear. If you want them buy them if not scroll on and mind your business.
  9. I actually have 1 available if interested Black 12# Shark
  10. Just to add to your description this is a Mix and Match thru hull ad there are several adapter cables made to fit many units. I currently have the same one in my Tiara and found almost every adapter available on google by looking up the MIx/Match Airmar Cables
  11. I just like my Otter Boats better but no specific reason other than opinion
  12. Well well well someone has to be looking for a nice setup
  13. If these are still available I will definitely take them
  14. We will be there this year as well. Fish Stix will be making the run from Bald Eagle to fish with a team from last year. Looking forward to putting in for a great cause. Especially when cancer hits at home like it did for myself.
  15. I found another tip that’s useful as well, not to trash a spot by having numerous people come help try finding blood and trashing an area by walking all over cause they can step on the smallest of blood or scent, if you lose the blood trail mark it and back out then make the call to deer search.
  16. Had a Trophy 2502 for a couple years and if I could get it back I would. Love the design, love the way it handles rough seas and it fished like a dream. I could load it and tow anywhere, made quite a few trips to Erie and then from the west end Wilson all the way to Oswego. Then with those Etecs on it it’s sipped fuel and then when you wanted to be someplace it would get you there in a hurry
  17. Do yourself the proper justice and call the number for warranty issues. I had a leftover 2015 Starweld 20Pro and had an issue that when on plane the boat would list over due to prop torque and the dealer never heard of such issue so online here I went and found out that others were having same issue. Well the dealer was great even though they couldn’t fix it as warranty without putting trim tabs on it. They tried there damdist to help me but ended up giving me the number and made a call. Low and behold Starcraft was aware of the issue and sent me what they called a fix, 2-4” long pieces of 1” angle iron for me to mount myself. Needless to say I bought actual trim tabs and installed those instead. They mass produce these boats fast cause demand is high and I bet they missed something. Keep good with dealer and see if they can get you a number, I think you would get much further than an email. Good Luck
  18. Those are the Traxtech tracks and we bolted them down only because I did get the Versatrack brackets and everything was bouncing around which made me very nervous. It required some work taking the side panels off but I used short sections cause of the rod lockers. Maybe by now they have come up with a more beefy bracket to mount the track to
  19. Like I said this was info passed along from a conversation we were having at the dock. It raised my concern and has stuck in my head, there wer efood changes made this year with all the pens along south shore to provide a bigger fingerling when released and the weight average did go up using that said food. Hopefully it works and provides healthier salmon. I am aware of the age classes that run and don’t. We were offshore this past weekend catching 3 year olds that probably won’t run and caught a bunch of 1-2 year old fish as well. As for the bait situation well with the trawls done early and late we shouldn’t have to worry any with all year classes being caught in healthy numbers. I will mention another concern brought up by anothe rcaotain was why would a mature 3 year old salmon be stuffed full of this years hatch of alewives no bigger than 1.5” and not have any other age class in its belly. Possible that that was the only bait available at that feeding time, I don’t know. For me learning the biology of the lake comes thru ambassadors of the lake. I surely do t want to see the mighty King dissolve from the lake. I have fished it from the late 80’s to present and plan on fishing for many many years. If I have nothing to be concerned then so be it.
  20. I had a Targa 18 and then moved up to a Starweld 20 but it’s the same setup. Hope this helps
  21. I can’t provide any documentation as it was a general conversation between a fellow advocate for Lake Ontario who had discussions with biologists from both sides of the lake just a week ago and when I brought to his attention about the 2 year old salmon having mature eggs and not being mature enough to spawn, he mentioned that this was the topic of there conversation. Yesterday we had a male that had no sperm in it what so ever, so yes there is an issue and Jerry Felluca can add to this conversation if he so chooses. As for the Genesee river it used to be a major source of reproduction for salmon and that was a fact. As for interbreeding yes you can say that even in nature it’s so but when your pulling eggs and sperm from the same class of fish year after year the genetics are gonna get screwed up. Why not Ship eggs from West coast Chinooks overnite and hatch those fish for pens. I am no expert by any means and base what I say as to what was told first hand from people involved in the system when concerns were raised by myself and other Captains. Do we not have a reason to not worry with certain facts at hand?
