  2. nice. i had a big brown do that a few years ago. i stopped reeling and dropped it back a few feet and he crushed the spoon. good luck tomorrow. i will be out there looking for a derby fish or 2
  3. if you are close to rochester then go to brad's trailer supply on lyell ave. they have everything in stock
  4. 500' from the genny is a lot further. i never paid attention to the actual distance but it has to be at least 10 miles
  5. congrats.that was a nice steelhead. love that new fishmaster
  6. braid works good in the spring but you want 30 pound wire to combat the fleas in is worth every penny
  7. july 30th sandy creek shootout we fished out of rochester today for the shootout.left the launch at 5 am and motored out to 140' and set up.i told my team we would try there for an hour and then run deep if we weren't getting any bites.when we hit 165 fow our 400 copper pulling a 11" pro troll and a minion meat rig took off screaming. when the battle was over we put a 23+ pound king in the box. trolled out to 200 fow and i said spin it around and hit that spot again.second pass took a 22+ king on the same copper we worked the water all day and ended up boating many kings and had 4 nice fish to weigh. we weighed in at over 82 pounds and and were fortunate enough to have the biggest box and win the shootout against many great teams.thanks to Rob Matt and Brian for a great event.thanks to the sponsors.thanks to my cousin ryan did a great job at the helm so i could tend friend brandon did a hell of a job on the reel and with the net. we will be back next year for sure.
  8. there were 46 boats if i remember correct
  9. x2 on Chris from minion trolling flies.he has quality products and he is a good guy to deal with.
  10. i always run seaguar fluro. a bit more stealth and more abrasion resistant in case it hits bottom
  11. monroe county offshore classic when the guys announced that they were bringing a tournament back to Rochester i wanted to support it. i got 2 of my cousins to commit so i entered.i wasn't feeling overly confident on saturday morning because we never had a chance to pre fish and my team mates were lacking in trolling experience. we waited for 5;30 am and dropped lines down in 150' of water straight out from port and hooked a 12+ pound coho on a free sliding cheater before i could get all the rods out. i reeled tight on it and fought it to the boat and the net man got the main spoon caught in the net and i watch the fish swim away. the disappointment didn't last long as the divers started firing and we started putting fish in the box.had another mishap on the rod later in the day and lost a mid teens king at the back of the boat with the prop cutting the line. we ended the day with 30+ bites and everyone had a great time and gained some valuable experience.we weighed in 2 mid teens kings, a mid teen laker, a small brown and a small king and finished 14th. less then 1 point out of the money. thank you to the organizers.Rick, Matt, Lucas, Larry. thanks to Chris from Minion trolling flies. the custom flies he tied me and his meat rigs were firing all day. team net breaker will back next year.
