  1. Literally a one in a million fish! Congratulations
  2. Does anyone know of a bait shop with decent (large) suckers for the upcoming pike season? The 1000 Islands Bait Store won't have any!

    Another good SLR perch catch

    NOT a pleasant morning on the water. Definitely ready for some easier conditions next week

    Great northern Lights and fishing

    Your photos are insane! I've never seen the aurora like that...but have to admit I've been way to close to those sparklers
  6. Our SLR fish are just gorging on those gobies and getting chunky as a result. Walleye, smallmouth and pike for sure. Mergansers not shy about them all winter. Cormorants come summer. Watching them from the dock - they seem to be easy prey...not too fast and they move in short hops. Need to spend more time on my brown jig imitators. Storm makes a big paddletail swimbait that rocked the pike for us as well.
  7. Pap, I've got to say that's an awful sight. On my way back tomorrow and had expected that to be just a memory.
  8. That's the sweetest and saddest boat pic I've ever seen! Also can't wait to get back on the water!
  9. Getting spring fever, for sure. Thanks for the post, Justin

    Sea nymph help

    Also a Sea Nymph195 owner. When I did my floor I was able to salvage the original carpet and put it back down over new plywood. Although there is some expense involved, I coated the wood with West system epoxy, both faces, and two coats on all edges. Made for a very tough subfloor. As for the carpet, I totally wish I had gone for vinyl. My buddy's got a Lund with the vinyl, much easier to keep clean. I also keep my boat in the water. Rain always finds a way through the covers and the carpet is always wet. Wouldn't be a problem with the vinyl.

    On board chargers?

    I've got a Pro mariner dual bank that is supposed to drop down to "float" once the batteries are fully charged. If my boat's at the dock, it's plugged in and I've had no issues. Just finished third season on group 31 trolling motor battery and 24 cranking(dual purpose) and they still seem to perform as new. In winter I fully charge, disconnect everything and leave them in the boat. They never come close to fully discharging and jump right back up in the spring after a short charge.

    Sonarchart live screenshots

    Wallyandre, I spent a lot of hours charting and producing my own contour charts up here a couple summers ago. I was a pretty vocal critic of Navionics + because they just didn't have an accurate database and I knew some critical things were missing or not located properly. I am also a realist and know there isn't really any way anyone could list every detail on every body of water. My advice to everyone who wants to target the eyes here is to get charting software and spend the time producing your own 100% accurate charts like you did. I'm a detail freak, hunt around the bottom looking for current breaks and subtle pieces of fish holding structure. Lots of guys hit some great fish randomly, but being able to reproduce that success depends a lot on duplication. Same speed, same depth, same hump, same direction. Get it right there and then find three more spots just like it and you'll have some great nights! We're lucky in that the SLR is huge, good structure is everywhere, and you can find a place to fish without drawing a crowd. Prof
  15. Today's a good day to practice!!!
