  1. Yep, been using spin doctors for big lakers for the past 2 years now. I keep trying to refine ways to attach a treble like a conventional spoon setup. You dont want the hook trailing too far behind or you get head snags.
  2. Thanks for the offer Sam, but i already have some 8s from basspro. Need something a little bigger. Gonna look into the 9s Sk8 mentioned.
  3. Does anyone know where to get big, key ring size split rings? I’m trying to attach a treble to the rear of a spin doctor. I drilled a hole about a quarter inch in from the edge, center of the tail. I tried regular key rings a couple years ago, and big lakers just straightened them out.
  4. Went out this afternoon with Captain Chris Cinelli of Grand Island . Kinda slow until this beast hit around 3 pm. 47 inch, we’re guessing 33-35 lbs. Fish of a lifetime for me.
  5. No, just straight up trolling sinker and gambler rig
  6. Yes Shawn, I had Gambler make me up some big rigs and they made there way into the rotation. They do seem to work anywhere.“
  7. Hey Pap, I was fishing on the Olcott pier for salmon and another guy was telling me about his trips to NW Canada. He said Lac la Martre was on his list. I googled it, thought about and pulled the trigger. I had never been on anything more than a local charter but thought what the hell. I’m so happy I did. No walleye in LLM. It’s only 60 ft deep so they dont get the true monsters some other deeper lakes get. I did catch 45 lakers 20 lbs and over, so it has numbers.
  8. I went to Lac La Martre in the Canadian NWT for 3rd year in a row and had another great time. Great mixture of laker and pike fishing even though pike are tough in late July.
  9. I went on a charter a few years ago and the captain put couple of rods in the rod holders and put them straight down in the water. He had some perch body baits on.
  10. Don’t know much about stripers. Do guys fish for them for the fight or to eat them?
  11. For the past 2 years I’ve been going to Lac La Martre in the Canadian NWT for lake trout and pike. I’m thinking of trying a king salmon trip this year instead. I’ve been doing alot of online research, but there's so many , its tough to tell which ones really are worth the money. I need a lodge that provides a guide, any recommendations are greatly appreciated.

  13. What kind of net ? I've been using a Cummings landing net with a telescoping handle ( gotta be 7 ft ) on the piers for salmon. The handle is fine , but the net is the basic big hole mesh. A big salmon flopping around can make a tangled mess. I want to upgrade, but I'm not sure which kind works best. Rubber, Rubber coated mesh, PVC coated ?
  14. A stradic 4000 is a great reel. I started out witha Cabelas 9 ft heavy power salmon rod for $99 4 years ago. This year I decided to try an upgrade and bought a St Croix Wild river 9ft heavy power salmon rod for $199. No difference in my opinion, I just spent an extra $100 for the St Croix name. I like the 9ft rod for casting on piers, but everybody has their own preference. I also like #20 power pro.
  15. Awesome looking trip. Pretty sure I woulda been getting seasick around the 4:05 mark.
  16. I started reading "The Ultimate guide to kayak fishing" by Joel Springer. Sounds like hes a local guy. Sounds quite helpful so far.
  17. Sounds cool. And I am most likely going back next year. Love that place.
  18. Went back to LLM in the Canadian NWT at the end of July. Fished for lakers in the morning and pike in the afternoon. Capt. Vince gave me a couple spin doctors and said to put some hooks on them. They absolutely crushed the lakers. It was my "secret lure". The other guides were asking mine what we using, but he wouldn't tell them Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. What were the pike hitting on?
  20. Punta Cana Looks I'll be going to Punta Cana in mid October. I'd like to get in some fishing for 1, maybe 2 days. Does anyone have a good captain or charter service to recommend? Prefer deep sea for big fish but will consider anything thats biting in October. Thanks.
  21. Sold, pending finalization of transaction.
  22. Shimano Stradic 8000 Used 1 salmon pier season in 2014. Took it out to the river last week to make sure everything was still working fine and it was. I would say its in VG to EXC condition. Includes extra spool. $ 120. Will work with you on delivery/shipping.
  23. I dont have a boat so I dont salmon fish out on the lake, except for a few charters each year. I did go on a trip to the NWT last summer and we used a plug made by Tomic. It had 1 treble hook bottom front. We used them for lakers, my guide raved about them.
