  1. Keep at it, some of my biggest fish (tiger Muskie, walleye, and brown trout) were all caught in my kayak. 2 of them while trolling in Lake Ontario.
  2. For me fishing out of a kayak is the difference between a fly rod and a casting rod or a bow and a rifle. It simplifies the sport and puts you closer to the water and the fish you’re hunting. Some days the simplification is more attractive than the hassles of taking the boat out and waiting in line at the launch or a fighting with a finicky motor.
  3. This time of year I usually wear waders or rain pants to keep the paddle splash off my legs. In 10 years I’ve still never come close to tipping and I’ve been in some pretty rough water.
  4. I also used to run 2 rods with 80’ leads but after the first hook up my approach changed....my yak uses paddles, no pedals
  5. Nice, must have been a fun fight. I’ve only run my light trolling rods which is fun but I think I’ll use my spinning gear this year
  6. Nice healthy looking fish! How long of a lead are you running behind you?
  7. Nice fish! How did you like landing them with 8’6” rod? I use the same length but cut the handles down to make them more maneuverable when netting fish. Would love to use my noodle rods but the handles are still too long to manage in tight quarters
  8. I sign all of my blanks, not so much for myself but for my kids if they ever use them after I’m gone or done fishing like you said. It gives that personal touch that increases the sentimental value
  9. Thanks for posting Kevin. I just came in off the ice and saw this and was just telling my friend that I am still keeping my eyes out for another boat. Will definitely keep this in mind
  10. That’s the closest thing I found it to be except the flesh didn’t have the discoloration of sandy flesh. Just very white and smooth, almost slimy texture?
  11. I decided to stop at Oneida on the way home from work for the sunset bite and caught a couple in short order. The second one was 20” with a huge head but the pic shows the shape of the body, it isn’t an illusion. When I filleted it, there was only a skinny strip of meat on each side that resembled that of a bullhead more than a walleye. My guess is some sort of muscle degeneration. The color of the fish looked very healthy but the flesh told a different story. Has anyone else seen anything like this?
  12. If you are coming regardless try trolling red, pink, orange spoons for steelhead inside 20’. Might be a little early
  13. I drive a v8 Nissan Armada that pulls it fine but the gas gauge changes steadily as I go and 3/4 of a tank is sometimes used during one round trip from Syracuse to Henderson.
  14. I bounce around during the year between Oneida, Ontario and a couple of the smaller finger lakes but would also like to take it to the salt for some bay fishing during vacations but no way I would drive the glass tank out there along with my family and a weeks worth of luggage. Maybe I can’t have my cake and eat it too but would to at least know if it’s an option.
  15. I have seen Starcraft Fishmasters that look to be 20’ or maybe 21’ that are loaded up with 2-4 downriggers and set up for big water. Does anyone have any input on those?
