  1. Anybody know some one that will come to your house and shrink wrap? Monroe County area
  2. 10 color and if you are making spring trips then you will want to add a 5 color to your arsenal eventually
  3. Sorry to hear about your trouble Brian. It was a horrible day for us too. Lost fish and then our own boat trouble. I am already looking forward to next year.
  4. Hamlin today was choppy this morning and then slowly laid down
  5. I fished the bald eagle tournament today out of sandy. We caught fish from 80` out to 180. Kings,cohos,steel and lakers.100 for to 130 was best for us for bigger kings
  6. Copper is so soft that there is no need for anything special. A steel eye or ceramic is good as long as it is big enough
  7. Yes there are some crazy currents that happen out there and they will effect cannon ball weights when you get then deep. It was mentioned above that shark style and torpedo weights will track much better. There are some guys on this site that make both styles and I highly recommended them
  8. Keep the boat going straight when putting lines out. Deploy dipsey very slow. I would lose the wingers and try. Turn very slowly when making turns.
  9. Steelhead Fishing has been great so far. Kings are slow so far but they will be easier to dial in once the lake sets up

    Sold / Closed Oneida May 30th

    Nice change of pace. Some good looking filets. I love that cheek meat
  11. With all the dead and dying alewives around all we are doing is supporting a healthy bird population. Salmon were originally stocked to make sure there wouldn't be massive bait fish die off
  12. Agreed it is time to up the stocking #'s. They went too far with the stocking cuts in the first place. I could understand their logic behind the the 1st round of cuts but then they cut again. They can start by bringing the king pen project back to sandy
  13. You can see it on the satellite images from today
  14. I like a 50 ft leader for my copper and lead setups. You have some room on there to retie a few times. For divers I reel the diver to the rod tip. Tie on the leader and then run it down the rod and around the reel and back up to the rod tip and tie on a swivel
  15. They are scattered. A lot of boats inshore yesterday. I didn't have a chance to talk to anyone to see if anyone found some. Water was good inside but we didn't try inside
  16. We were catching browns off the surface over 50 fow yesterday
  17. Won't be a problem mid may. They start showing up when the top water temp is about 70 degrees
  18. Braid works great until the fleas show up and stick to it so bad that you won't be able to reel it in
  19. I think you are both right. There was some decent numbers around until we had all that east wind and the water cleared up. I have been getting out since March 9th and have put 100 browns or more in the boat and not one under 5 or 6 pounds. Something is up
  20. Agreed. Where are the small browns. We haven't caught one under 6 pounds.
  21. Nice Atlantic. That king looks like he hasn't eaten in a while. Did you see any bait moving in?
  22. I am a big fan of the Daiwa great lakes rods. I have a couple of the 8' 6 downrigger and I think the action is perfect for riggers. I have a bunch of the other actions and like them all
