  1. Was good to meet you fisherdude and Billy it was good to help you feast on some of those fresh perch!
  2. On a side bar I cant wait to see the results of the spring barney and bears derby. I've heard of more big browns coming out of cayuga than ever before and plenty of great Lakers too! It's going to be a showdown for sure
  3. I believe in this for Lakers and bows but its irrelevant for browns and even landlocks for that matter. Once they hit 6lbs they tend to add girth quicker than length
  4. I'm gunna throw it out there and say 27inches and this shape that fish is 10.5 or bigger those football shaped fish are really hard to judge
  5. Ditto on 12lb seagaur. I run different weights for different applications on the finger lakes 10#,12#,15# and 20#. All red label seagaur. I also double and triple check line often. Any knicks, knots, or off coloring I change it out and dont risk it!
  6. Hmmmm I'm putting 2 and 2 together now!
  7. There we go Brian! Do they still make the spin n glows that are the size of a cue ball?
  8. You've heard the stories too then!?!?
  9. Joey you stay outta here! There's no such thing as suspended lake trout!😂
  10. Often our best days we fish in 300-450fow with gear down 80-120 Brian and its simple fishing. Our biggest boxes this year came from doing this and some of our highest quantity catches
  11. This is a very interesting post. Seems to be about a 50/50 split of guys who catch bigger fish off the bottom and guys who catch bigger fish suspended! Guess they are both places
  12. Theres a big difference in Lakers on Ontario vs the fingers. In the fingers often those suspended Lakers are pretty easy to catch. Run a spin doctor and fly or the right spoon in the area your seeing those marks ESPECIALLY from July through September when those Mark's are 80-100 down over deeper water
  13. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up do NOT use the far south launch ramp at Treman. There is a log at the end that myself and another boat both kissed with our props this morning. No damage was caused at least to my rig however I would hate to see someone do damage! Water is still low aswell so be careful on any of the ramps and on your way out!
  14. I agree with nick here. Kings are a dime a dozen big landlocked Atlantics are far more appreciated in my book! As far as fishing them it's very similar to fishing kings. One thing to remember is if you can catch quantity while trolling drop your baits down deeper and often you'll find the bigger ones there!
  15. Are you asking about the different strategies to fish each?
  16. You can always find a place to cast at tughannok park
  17. Anyone who is interested in these riggers i highly recommend them I use them on my boat and they are the best manuals on the market! Really solid too. I wouldn't hesitate to run a 16lb ball if you wanted to! Good luck with sale!
  18. Theres no hook requirement anymore. However your limited to 5 lures
  19. Looking for somewhere between 4-8 flatline/downrigger combos. Okuma glts or shimano talora rods with okuma magda 30s preferred but will entertain other possibilities. WORKING LINE COUNTERS A MUST!
  20. Similar to stated above. I start around 2.2-2.4. They like anything from 2.0-3.0 on and given day when fishing spoons sticks and flasher/fly combos
  21. In the finger lakes I consider this transition from when the fish are feeding on the deep alwives which like to school up in the deep stable water in the winter 120-220ft down over deep depths. As the water begins to warm the alwives rise a bit and come closer to shore. Often this is when we have some of the best luck on landlocks and most of the time we stay off the beaten path that most guys take which is running stick baits and spoons flatlining and off short cores as close to shore as possible. We will instead fish depths of 80-250 and run flasher/fly combos, spoons and even sticks down to depths of 60-80ft. Thermoclines and temp haven't usually set up by then and they aren't bottom oriented however they are feeding heavily on bait so some days are going to be a struggle and others you will have a field day. Try running these flasher flies off a dipsy diver on a wire diver rod! You'll be surprised at how these fish fight in the spring.. weve had divers set on a 3 setting out 190 before roughly 75 ft down and saw the fish jump behind the boat before the rod moved then watched them scream drag like a king salmon!
