  1. KNOCKED THE SNOT OUT THE LL RB AND LT TODAY. 40 FEET DOWN! PURPLE PURPLE PURPLE
  2. I HAVE NEW, IN THEIR ORIGINAL WRAPPERS, SUTTON SPOONS FOR SALE. SIZE 35 AND 8 HT. 6 OF EACH. IF INTERESTED, MAKE ME AN OFFER (PER SPOON) I CAN MAIL THEM TO YOU. I ALSO HAVE A BUNCH OF USED ONES IN SIZE 88. THESE HAVE THE TREBLE HOOKS REPLACED WITH 1/0 SINGLE HOOKS . SEND ME A PM VIA THIS SITE WITH ANY OFFERS, THANKS.
  3. EARLY IN THE MORNING OR AT DUSK, IF THERE IS A SLIGHT CHOP OR CALM, I SKIP A WHITE STREAMER, 4 INCH MODEL, JUST ON THE SURFACE. I RUN IT BACK AT LEAST 125 FEET. IT IS A LOT OF FUN WATCHING THEM STRIKE/SWIRL AT IT BEFORE GETTING HOOKED. I USE A 1/16 OUNCE KEEL WEIGHT ON THE LINE ABOUT 3 FEET AHEAD OF THE FLY. THE HOOK UPS ARE EXPLOSIVE, SO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR DRAG SET CORRECTLY. LOST MORE THAN A FEW SET UPS DUE TO THIS. THE LIGHTER THE LINE YOU CAN USE, THE BETTER, BUT YOU WILL GET BREAK OFFS. ONCE BOAT THE TRAFFIC ARRIVES MY CATCH RATE DROPS. WILL WORK IN WATERS UP TO 20 FOOT DEEP ON CALM CONDITIONS.
  4. THEY WORK GREAT IN A SLIGHT CHOP. FIRST LIGHT TRY "SKIPPING" THEM ALONG THE SURFACE. ONCE THE BOAT TRAFFIC COMES OUT, MY CATCH RATE SEEMS TO SLOW. USING A WHITE STREAMER, IN A 4 INCH MODEL, WORKS BEST FOR ME. A LOT OF FUN WATCHING THEM CHASE IT, AND MISS IT ONCE OR TWICE BEFORE GETTING HOOKED. FISH IT AT LEAST 125 FEET BACK WITH A TINY KEEL WEIGHT. 1/8 OUNCE. THE STRIKES ARE VIOLENT, MAKE SURE YOUR DRAG IS SET CORRECTLY.
  5. Anybody out there ever tried the old fashioned Seth Green rig on Ontario? Just curious as they catch plenty of fish in the Finger Lakes. I think that if I ever hooked a King, I would probably need a new set of fingers, but was wondering if anyone has tried it yet......... Thanks.
  6. HELLO DARKWATER - SINCE YOU SEEM SO CURIOUS, MY SON SIGNED ME UP ON THIS FORUM SEVERAL YEARS AGO. BUT SINCE I WOULD RATHER ACTUALLY BE ON THE WATER THAN GO ONLINE, I HAVE NOT POSTED MUCH UNTIL THE SENECA SUBJECT CAME UP. I DO NOTE THAT YOU HAVE 504 POSTS IN 2 YEARS..........YOU REALLY NEED TO GET ON THE WATER MORE..........LIFE IS TOO SHORT! BYE NOW, GOING FISHING! OH, MY YACHT, IS A 16 FOOT, 2002, WITH TILLER STEERING,. AND THE PORTA POTTY IS A BUCKET. SILVER FOX - I'M ON HERE BECAUSE I DIDN'T LOG OFF............OOPS, MY BAD!!
  7. DARKWATER - NO THAT WAS NOT ME IN THE BLACK LUND. I 'M THE GUY THAT TELLS EVERYONE WHO ASKS ME AT THE DOCK, " NOPE, NEVER CAUGHT A THING ALL DAY AND NEVER EVEN HAD A BITE" HOWEVER, I REALLY DO ENJOY LISTENING TO, AND READING ABOUT, THEIR EXTRAORDINARY FISHING FEATS AND OTHER BS. I GUESS I AM JUST AN OLD SCHOOL DINOSAUR.........I JUST WANT TO BE LEFT ALONE AND DO NOT LIKE OTHERS IMPOSING THEIR WILL OR OPINIONS ON ME AS IF IT WERE FACT AND THEN ANOTHER STUPID LAW IS PASSED..........OUR GOVERNMENTS, LOCAL, STATE, AND FEDERAL ARE FULL OF THESE POMPUS, EDUCATED IDIOTS. JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE SAYS OR FEELS.........SOMETHING, DOESN'T MAKE IT REALLY TRUE. AS YOU MAY HAVE GUESSED I AM NOT POLITICALLY CORRECT. HOWEVER, SINCE THE PERCH POPULATION "OBVIOUSLY" HAS BEEN DECIMATED BY THE GREEDY, SLOB, FISH EATERS AND OTHER FACTORS BEYOND OUR CONTROL OR UNDERSTANDING, I WANT TO DO MY PART, SO I DID STOP AT SEAGARS ON THE WAY HOME FROM SENECA LAKE TONIGHT TO ASK/BEG THEM TO CANCEL THE 4/2 PERCH KILLING FESTIVAL. UNFORTUNATELY THEY WERE CLOSED. MAYBE I WILL HAVE BETTER LUCK THURSDAY.... IF I CAN'T GET THEM TO CANCEL, I MAY HAVE AN ORGANIZED PROTEST WITH EVERYONE WHO CAN'T CATCH THEIR LIMIT OF PERCH ON THIS FORUM JOINING ME IN THE PROTEST. WE CAN CARRY SIGNS AND LIE DOWN IN FRONT OF BOATS UNTIL THEY STOP THIS NEEDLESS SLAUGHTER OF INNOCENT PERCH.. WE COULD CALL OURSELVES (.A.S.S. G.A.S) "ANGLERS SAVING SOME GREAT AMERICAN SPORT." OUR SLOGAN CAN BE "SAVE A PERCH EAT A SEAGULL" PLEASE......... JOIN ME IN THIS WORTHWHILE EVENT.......DO IT FOR THE CHILDREN. WELL I HAVE 14 CRAPPIES TO FILLET THAT I GOT OUT OF SENECA, I DID THROW BACK TWO HOG FEMALES, THUS ENSURING THE RESOURCE IS SUSTAINABLE FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS.......
  8. I HAVE KEPT A PERSONAL LOG OF EACH AND EVERY DAY I HAVE SPENT FISHING, HUNTING, AND TRAPPING SINCE I WAS 13 YEARS OLD. I AM NOW 63 AND HOPE TO PASS THESE ALONG TO CHILDREN AND GRAND CHILDREN WHEN I PASS. YOU CAN LEARN A LOT ABOUT THE GOOD OLD DAYS AND IMPROVE YOUR CURRENT DAYS AFIELD BY LOOKING BACK AT DATA. AS I GET OLDER I HAVE LEARNED NOT TO TRUST MY MEMORY OR THE MEMORY OF OTHERS....THE LOG/JOURNAL TAKES ABOUT 5 MINUTES TO COMPILE AT THE END OF THE DAY. BAITS USED, LOCATION, DEPTH, WATER AND AIR TEMP, WATER CLARITY, WIND SPEED DIRECTION, CATCH RATE ETC. AND IS VERY USEFUL IN IDENTIFYING PATTERNS, CHANGING CONDITIONS, AND OTHER ITEMS OF INTEREST. AFTER A FEW TIMES OF ENTERING THIS DATA, YOU CAN EASILY CREATE A BLANK SHEET OF WHAT YOU FEEL IS IMPORTANT AND THEN FILL IN THE BLANKS ALONG WITH A COMMENTS SECTION. IT REALLY IS FUN TO LOOK BACK AND SEE WHAT YOU DID AND HOW IT REALLY WAS,,,... YEP THIS IS ONLY ONE PERSONS DATA (I GUESS) BUT IT IS MINE AND THEREFORE I PUT MORE STOCK INTO IT THEN THOSE PROVIDED BY AGENCIES AND OTHERS MEMORIES OR THEIR EXPERIENCES WITH DIFFERENT (AND PROBABLY BETTER) EQUIPMENT. JUST ASK THE DEC EXPERTS (WHO RARELY LEAVE THE OFFICE) HOW MANY DEER ARE AROUND. WELL ENOUGH OF THIS ARMCHAIR FISHING, I AM GOING FOR REAL CRAPPIE FISHING BEFORE THEY ARE EXTINCT, HEY DID YOU KNOW SENECA HAS SOME SLOB CRAPPIES IN IT? WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU GOT A 25 FISH LIMIT THERE? FOR ME IT WAS APRIL 17TH 2015 ON AN OVERCAST AFTERNOON USING FAT HEADS, SUSPENDED IN 39 DEGREE WATER. WHERE??? YOU WILL HAVE TO FIND OUT YOURSELF, AS I FORGOT................................
  9. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS JERKTROLLER. I AGREE. MY POINT IS THAT CONDITIONS CHANGE AND WE NEED TO ADJUST. SOME PEOPLE DON'T AND BLAME CONDITIONS FOR THEIR LACK OF SUCCESS. (BY THE WAY MY CAP LOCKS ARE ON BECAUSE MY COMPUTER IS OLD, LIKE ME, AND DOES NOT HAVE ALL OF THE FUNCTIONS IT SHOULD HAVE) SORRY TO THE LITERARY POLICE OUT THERE MY MAJOR POINT IS WHEN FISH ARE HARVESTED WITHIN CURRENT LAWS, THEY BECOME THE PROPERTY OF THAT PERSON AND THAT PERSON SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO WITH THEM AS THEY WISH. PERIOD. REGARDING THE STATEMENTS OF SMALL FISH BEING LEFT ON THE ICE TO ROT, SADLY, THIS IS A SOMETIMES A TRUE STATEMENT, HOWEVER IT IS AGAINST THE LAW. ANY FISH KILLED, KEPT OR NOT, IS TO BE COUNTED AGAINST ONES DAILY LIMIT. I READ WHERE SOME ON THIS FORUM HAVE SEEN THIS......WHY DIDN'T THEY REPORT IT? SOME ALSO STATE THEY SEE PEOPLE KEEPING SMALL FISH, SO WHAT. WHEN I WANT BEEF I DON'T WANT THE OLDEST BULL IN THE HERD, I WANT THE YOUNGER TENDER ONES. PERSONALLY, I WON'T KEEP THE 2 LB FEMALE PERCH, I PUT THEM BACK TO REPRODUCE. BUT AGAIN THAT IS, MY CHOICE AND I DON'T TRY TO IMPOSE MY WILL UPON OTHERS. ALSO I DON'T HAVE A LARGE ENOUGH EGO TO TAKE A MESS OF PHOTOS OF THEM AND POST THE PICS ON THE INTERNET. LOOK AT ME! AREN'T I WONDERFUL! WITH THAT SAID, I BELIEVE THAT WITH THE MAJORITY OF REVENUE COMING FROM THE PANFISH FISHERMAN LICENSES TO THE DEC AND THIS CONCERN ABOUT PERCH POPULATIONS, ALBEIT UNFOUNDED, WE SHOULD STOP STOCKING TROUT AND SALMON. PUT THE REVENUES INTO STOCKING PERCH! STOPPING THE TROUT/SALMON STOCKING WOULD NOT HARM THE PERCH POPULATION. THE PERCH FISHERY WAS JUST FINE BEFORE THESE PROGRAMS WERE STARTED. I KNOW, I WAS OUT THERE WAY BACK THEN. BELIEVE IT OR NOT I WAS A CHARTER MEMBER OF THE ORIGINAL ROCHESTER TROUT AND SALMON ANGLERS AND WAS ONE OF THE FEW, THAT TRIED TO INCORPORATE THE FINGER LAKES INTO THESE PROGRAMS BUT WAS OUT VOTED BY THE MONEY MACHINE INTERESTS. PERHAPS THE GREEDY CHARTER BOAT FISHERMAN WOULD DISAGREE. BUT I GUESS IT IS OK FOR THEM TO CHARGE $$$ TO FISH, BUT NOT FOR SOME POOR SLOB WHO CAN'T AFFORD A $30,000 BOAT,TO SELL THEIR LEGALLY OBTAINED CATCH AND LET SOMEONE WHO CAN NOT CATCH THEM ENJOY THEM. HEY PORCUPINE THE FOLLOWING IS A COPY/PASTE OF YOUR NOT SO DEROGATORY STATEMENT REGARDING MY "SCREEN NAME" I guess from your screen name some assumptions can be made regarding the origin of your opinion. BY THE WAY I STOPPED USING GOLD MUSTAD XTRA FINE WIRE HOOKS ABOUT 30 YEARS AGO AS THEY WERE OUTDATED THEN, AND STILL ARE. FISH SMARTER, NOT HARDER.
  10. FISHING WAS BETTER 30 YEARS AGO.........REMINDS ME OF THE OLD SAYING "THE OLDER I GET THE BETTER I WAS"........ I HAVE A SIGN IN MY BOAT....... "SHUT UP AND FISH" SINCE THE PERCH FISHING IS SOOOOOOO BAD. HERE IS AN IDEA. THE LICENSE SALES OF PANFISH FISHERMAN FAR EXCEEDS THE NUMBER OF LAKE ONTARIO AND FINGER LAKES TROUT AND SALMON PROS (A PRO IS JUST A $20.00 FEE ON THIS FORUM) PERHAPS THE PANFISH FISHERMAN SHOULD LOBBY THE STATE LEGISLATION AND DEC TO END TROUT AND SALMON STOCKING AND JUST STOCK PERCH! OOPS, SILLY ME, THAT WOULD CUT INTO THE PROS PROFIT MARGIN AND WOULD BE GREEDY ON THE PART OF THE PANFISH FISHERMAN. BOY IS THAT IDEA "WRONG MINDEDNESS" (WHAT EVER THAT IS)
  11. BLINDED BY GREED???????? WHAT MAKES YOU THINK I SELL FISH? JUST ANOTHER SHORT SIGHTED ASSUMPTION ON YOUR PART. AS I STATED NOT EVERY ONE CAN FISH FOR PERCH YET THEY STILL ENJOY EATING THEM. HOW ELSE CAN THE EAT FISH IF NO ONE SELLS TO THE PUBLIC? MY NICK NAME COMES FROM THE FACT I ACTUALLY WORKED FOR A LIVING AND CUT MEAT FOR MANY YEARS. YOUR SLAM OF IT IS JUST ANOTHER SHORT SIGHTED ASSUMPTION ON YOUR PART. YOUR RESPONSE TELLS ME THAT IF SOMEONE DISAGREES WITH YOUR OPINIONS, YOU MUST RESORT TO DEROGATORY COMMENTS. THANK YOU. SENECA LAKE HAS MILES OF AND MILES OF SPAWNING SHORELINE. THE OVER FISHING YOU COMPLAIN ABOUT IS A TWO HUNDRED YARD STRETCH AROUND SAMPSON. MOVE, FIND YOUR OWN SPOTS AND DON'T FOLLOW THE FLEET. SINCE THE TROUT AND SALMON STOCKING IN LAKE ONTARIO THE PERCH FISHING HAS EXPLODED. WHY???? THERE IS NO LIMIT ON PERCH IN THE 1000 ISLANDS, THERE ARE STILL SOME (THOUGH VERY FEW) COMMERCIAL NETTING OPERATIONS STILL LICENSED BY THE NY STATE AND CANADA ON LAKE ONTARIO. TALK ABOUT PRESSURE, LOOK AT THE VAST NUMBERS OF PANFISH FISHERMAN ON EVERY BAY, EVERYDAY OF THE WEEK. NOT JUST SPRINGTIME IN A 200 YARD STRETCH AS ON SENECA. LAKE ONTARIO EXPERIENCES THE SAME AQUATIC ISSUES, VIRUSES, AND CYCLES AS SENECA. WHY NO ISSUES THERE??? BY THE WAY PERCH LOVE TO EAT THE "AQUATIC" INFESTATIONS. THE ONES I CATCH, AND BY THE WAY ACTUALLY KILL TO EAT, ARE FULL OF THEM. THE 38 PERCH I KEPT YESTERDAY WERE FULL OF SOFT AQUATIC SHELLS...... BY THE WAY THE FILLETS WERE QUITE TASTY. OH BY THE WA,Y I DID NOT NEED A CAMERA TO FIND THE PERCH. I HAD TO ACTUALLY WORK FOR THEM. YOU KNOW I DIDN'T SEE YOU OUT THERE, OR ANYONE ELSE FOR THAT MATTER. PERHAPS YOU SHOULD HAVE SEAGERS CANCEL THE PERCH TOURNAMENT ON APRIL 2,ND. WE DON'T WANT TO DESTROY YOUR "HOME" PORT'S PERCH RESOURCE DO WE? I GUESS WE WILL AGREE TO DISAGREE, BUT IF YOU CAN'T CATCH FISH DON''T BLAME THE RESOURCE, LOOK IN THE MIRROR. THE RESOURCE IS STRONG.
  12. FROM YOUR POST I GATHERED A LOT OF OPINIONS........BUT VERY FEW FACTS. PERCH ARE A RENEWABLE RESOURCE. ONCE A PERSON CATCHES A PERCH, ,OR OTHER NON GAME FISH IT SHOULD BE THEIRS TO DO WITH AS THEY WISH. SOME PEOPLE DON''T FISH , YET THEY STILL ENJOY EATING THEM. WHERE DO YOU THINK THE PERCH FOR SALE IN MARKETS COME FROM? THEY ARE CAUGHT AND SOLD. I ALSO HAVE FISHED SENECA AND ALL OF THE FINGER LAKES FOR MORE THAN 50 YEARS. THERE ISN'T A SHORTAGE OF PERCH, BUT THEIR IS A SHORTAGE OF GOOD PERCH FISHERMAN. YOU CAN NOT EMPLOY THE SAME TECHNIQUES THAT YOU USED 25 YEARS AGO AND EXPECT THEM TO BE SUCCESSFUL TODAY. USE LIGHTER LINE FLORO CARBON AND FISH DEEPER. 30 - 60 FOOT. THE LAKES HAVE CHANGED DUE TO ZEBRA MUZZLES AND OTHER ISSUES. I REMEMBER COUNTING 137 BOATS IN DRESDEN BAY ONE SATURDAY MORNING DURING THE 70'S. YOU COULD NOT SEE BOTTOM IN 12 FOOT OF WATER AND THE FISH SPAWNED SHALLOW. NOW THEY DON'T. THEY SPAWN IN MUCH DEEPER WATER ADJUST YOUR TECHNIQUES. PERHAPS WE SHOULD ALSO BAN THE SALE OF WORMS AND MINNOWS AS WELL, AS THIS ALSO DEPLETES OUR RESOURCE.
