  1. my old man's neighbor at his cottage started feeding the mink out of his hand when he was cleaning fish and next thing you know there was 50 of them around getting in everyone's boats and chewing wires and making a mess.everyone was pissed and got a trapper to come in and get rid of them.never had a problem with them before or since that summer
  2. i think skipper is right about 650' of 40# being tight on that reel.i set up a second 45# 400 copper on a convector 55 over the winter and was only able to fit 550' of 50# pp while getting is as tight as possible with my spooling machine.i think the 55 is a bit bigger than the squal 30.you're not going to want the reel overfilled especially if you let people that aren't experienced with copper deploy it.
  3. 7 color 10 color are not lures.when you read this it is talking about lead core line. lead core changes to a different color every 30 feet.each section of color sinks at a rate of roughly 5 feet while trolled.so a 7 color is running roughly at 35 feet.chicken wing is a gold, black and orange spoon
  4. mason 7 strand.i've used all brands and it's the best imo
  5. they were dumping the barge inside of 100 ft. on friday
  6. found some steelies between i bay and the river today at 130 ft. top 20. orange super slims were best.
  7. nice brown. love getting those bonus fish.we got a big walleye trolling for browns in front of webster a couple weeks ago.
  8. i have these for my diver reels and they are awesome. need a ton of backing but the fast retrieve is the ticket.cabelas has 'em on sale for $90 right now
  9. daiwa sealine levelwind is $109 at fish usa.com. faster pickup than the convector.
  10. the brown bite in the bays should still be going.excellent bass and pike fishing too.i fish an aluminum lund boat and you're right about 4's being uncomfortable. i can't do it when i'm hung over
  11. for lake o 3 to 4 footers is the norm.calling for winds 15 to 20 this weekend and it will probably get rough but it doesn't mean you won't be able to fish in the early morning.you can always drive east and fish Irondequoit or Sodus bay
  12. great product for when the water color is clear or clearing. caught a bunch of browns on them all of March and April
  13. is it the same clip that's on scotty releases?if so then you just squeeze it and put the cable in the sharp bend and let go.
  14. nice.did you mark any schools of bait over deeper water?
  15. well that is still better than mowing.that is what i ended up doing today.the rain in the next couple days will get them biting again.i'll be out Tuesday afternoon.hope to see you out there
