  1. Yes it's NY, and it was quickly released Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Thanks. Tman, it was 2lb 10oz on my scale. Didn't measure length though. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Yeah I'm sorry to say I don't like how it looks either, the head is way too flat! Here's my crappie that someday I'll get a replica of... Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. I was out today near Oswego, wasn't even marking any... Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Sweet! What were you getting them on? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. I never fish that area so I can't give you any solid advice, I'd just try and mark them anywhere from 15 to 25 FOW or even deeper and drop shot either live bait or finesse baits like robo worms Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Caught a brown in the bay near grass island while bass fishing using a pit boss (soft plastic crayfish type thing) on a football jig head.....pretty random. Not sure why they'd be in the bay in 80 degree water? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Sweet. I picked up a couple different spinnerbaits today including that T1. Kinda pricey but the feedback from this thread has me convinced. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. That's what I normally do - 18 to 24" fluoro attached to micro barrel swivel because I don't like casting a knot through guides. But I know I should get more used to doing it anyway Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. What length do most of you guys use for a fluoro leader? I have gotten so used to using strike king spinnerbaits with success that it's pretty much all I seek out now, but with the suggestions in this thread I'll branch out. Although the Banshees may be flimsy after a while, I think they look great in the water. I have a couple Revenge spinnerbaits that are super flimsy and I haven't caught a thing on - I wouldn't seek them out but I could give them a fairer chance. The soft plastic bite is undeniable, once you find them...sometimes it's painfully slow fishing that I get fed up with after half an hour and need to go back to covering water with my go-to spinnerbait approach. I'm not a tournament guy so more than anything, I just want to enjoy my time on the water, and for me covering water is my favorite option Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Ok now Terminator is on my list to try...I assume they aren't hard to find? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Even around here though bass are hitting spinnerbaits all year, especially spring and fall. Still getting them in 80+ degree water with them too. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Most of my setups are braid + fluoro leader Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Here's what was left of it Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. I've only had the one Banshee break and I'm sure it was from the wire straightening out on bigger fish and pushing it back into place, combined with using braid/fluoro leaders. That'd be the advantage to having a closed loop, it's just a stronger design. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. Out of convenience I use almost exclusively Strike King spinnerbaits whether just the regular name, Banshee or KVD. Earlier in the spring I had a Banshee break right off at the wire on a bass that was probably 1.5lbs. When you catch big fish and they straighten that wire out and you keep pushing it back into place, it obviously weakens it each time. I estimated about 20 fish on that spinnerbait though before it broke. I need to experiment more with different spinnerbaits but it's hard for me to spend $10+ on one Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. Couldn't find a number on their site so I emailed them last week - no response. From what I've heard, they'd take them back and fix them for free but it could take a while. What I did instead was buy newer ones off eBay that come standard on 2014/15 models. They have a big metal hinge rather than the small screw design of these seats. Any offers will be considered or possibly trades, not looking to make money on these but throwing them out seems like a shame Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. I'm selling two Lund folding seats that fell apart while being trailered to Quebec. I assume the shaking and bumping on the trailer caused the bolts/hardware to come loose and fall out of place. The backrest would have to be slightly ripped up and stapled back into place to put them back together the way they were. They are perfectly fine aside from where they fold, and they are about $220 apiece new. I know a lot of guys on here could either fix them with Lund's hardware or rig them up better than they originally were designed. I however don't have the patience for that, quite honestly. Shoot me an offer if interested. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. Yeah I went out around 6 to bass fish the bay and every boat I saw go out to the lake was heading back by 9 or so. It was looking mean out there Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. Might be a bit choppy out there. Speaking of which, is it just me or has it been an extremely windy summer? Or at least the weekends. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. Thanks guys, it was a great trip regardless of weather and many memories were made. Some of my younger teenage cousins who don't get to fish much if at all were amongst the group's more successful anglers. We were a bit split between serious fishermen and more leisurely, laid back not-so-hellbent on numbers fishermen. Pap - we were in cabin 10, the big cabin to the north. There was a river right around the cove closest to us that we were a bit too nervous to bring one of the rental boats down, we spotted riffled water right at the start. Probably too shallow. A kayak would've been the ticket. We also didn't get into any of the other rivers nor did we try to. The other guys in our group said this was about the worst trip they've had there thus far for numbers and especially weather. Regardless, it was my first time there and I can't wait to go back.

  22. Sweet fish. Out of curiosity, what kind of live well system does he have? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  23. Just got back yesterday, final numbers for the group were 434 walleye, 26 pike, 4 perch, an umbrella and about 17 cases of beer. The weather was complete crap nearly the entire week besides our first full day which was Sunday. Other than that it was constant on/off showers, lots of wind, a good hail storm and plenty of lightning. Plenty of keepers though and they were fantastic eating. Nothing too crazy in the way of lunkers - one 40" pike at 15lbs, and a couple 26" walleyes and numerous over 20" but the majority were right in Poutrincourt's slot size of 12-18" with most being 15-16" Overall it was a great time despite the weather conditions. Temps were in the upper 50s and into the low 70s here and there when the sun decided to come out a few times throughout the week. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  24. Good tips Pap. Our guy who organizes everything has the bait situation all planned out. He pre orders 1000 night crawlers for the whole trip from a bait shop in A-Bay which we get on the way up. I forget how many jigs he gets, I'll bring a bunch anyway. Would it make sense to tie any? Marabou or bucktail? Or does just a worm on a jig do the trick? I've heard stories of the pike trying to latch onto walleye as they are being caught/reeled in. The bass fisherman in me makes me want to try and chuck a few big swimbaits, both soft and hard and see if it will get a reaction from those violent pike.

  25. I believe either in or near Chibougamau Quebec. I can't say for sure, luckily I'm not driving. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
