  1. So I just got off the phone with Corey. He was out with buddies today and had a guy who was inexperienced driving because he was rigging the back of the boat. He said he's sorry if it ruined your day but it was an accident if anything. The situation doesn't exactly stick out in his head however he does remember a little crestliner taking a couple pictures and figures that was probably the situation. I will vouge for him aswell that he does have class while he is driving a boat and would never intentionally run over someone's lines and always gives them plenty of room. In my opinion he actually is sometimes over cautious and is more generous than most guys I've fished with.
  2. Ok so I actually First Mate for Black dog adventures which is the boat in the picture. This is not "Reel Rage" charter Reel Rage is a spoon manufacturer who is a stand up guy that we run alot of his products. I was not on the boat today so I don't know the situation however you really should get your facts straight before trying to play keyboard warrior..
  3. Going to be a good turn out this year! If you're thinking about fishing and want me to mail out an entry form the last day I'll be mailing entry forms out is Monday 7/27. After that date if you want to enter you'll have to go to the South Seneca Sportsman's Club or meet up with myself or Dylan to register! This it to keep from receiving late entries by mail would hate to turn someone away do to receiving an entry after the cut off on 8/6. Thank you all!
  4. The current list of donations for the tournament are: Gambler Rigs Harvey O'Hara's downrigger weights Reynolds Custom jigs Reel Rage Trolling Spoons Great Lakes Lures Thanks all!
  5. Send a text of your address to 6074268426 and I will send you a copy of a registration form by mail. Then you can mail it back to the return address on the envelope filled out with the entry fees of everyone that will be on the boat. Please let me know if paying with a check in text message and I will let you know who to make it out to so we can cash it to add the funds to the prize pool. Thanks
  6. I also agree to stay away from roller rods unless you're going to shell out coin for really good ones. Personally I like the regular okuma great lakes rods with a twilly tip. But you do have to replace them every few seasons as they can get grooves from the wire but they are super cheap to do so at about 30 a rod. Haven't tried the taloras yet but they are pricey too
  7. Bump for a great tournament! Awesome tournament that usually has a great turn out! Also has an awesome chicken BBQ thanks to the sportsman's club and great raffles and donations! Get ahold of me to sign up asap and I can even mail you an entry form and you can mail it back if we can't get together to meet up or you're unable to make it to the sportsman's club to register! Hope to see you all there aswell as some fresh faces!
  8. Thanks again Brian! We appreciate your loyal support for this tournament and the finger lakes!!! You da man!
  9. Sorry about late reply to to this topic. However tournament is still a go! Please contact myself, or Dylan Margeit to register!
  10. Foul hooked fish is a possibility too. Sometimes they swipe at it and get It Stuck elsewhere
  11. This one hit a 5 color leadcore with a small Michigan stinger scorpion spoon in a perch pattern. No real secret but I suppose it was in the right water. What's the average size of the bows over there? Alot of them seemed to run Small
  12. Tried a change of scenery for father's day as my dad has been wanting to go there for some time and enjoy being able to fish as we fall into the size and motor restrictions. Launched around 545 at the south end. Had to back in until my front tires were in the water and still had to get in and wade until I could push the boat off the trailer, no big deal. However went to start motor and no dice. I have a 2010 Yamaha 9.9 and for some time now it seems that every season I have an issue with the carb. However last year I learned how to take care of it myself and a half hour later I had it tore out and apart and back together and we fired right up. Motored up the lake to the deep water which had alot of floating weeds and set up. Took around 20 rainbows with only 7 being of legal length. Released all of them. All rainbows came on small spoons such as stinger scorpions. Leadcores were best with a few fish on riggers and a few on dipsys. In the mix the 5 color went and my son got to reel in a decent brown. Around 11 we still didn't have a Laker yet and I've had a goal for some time to catch a Laker out of all the fingers that contain them so we went out to 90ft and I dropped stuff near bottom and put a rigger ball carrying cowbells and a gambler rig in the mud. A bit later the cowbells fired with a 3.5-4lb Laker. Not much and could definitely have caught bigger elsewhere however there's a check mark on my list so I was happy! Thanks Brian Gambell! If you're looking to explore and have a boat smaller than 16ft with a motor under 10hp take the adventure for a beautiful fishery!
  13. Looking for a used lowrance puck for LGC3000
  14. Thanks to both of you. I read somewhere that permits we required from the city of Rochester to fish these lakes. Is it true?
  15. Was looking to see if anyone ever messed around at these lakes. I've got a 14ft deep v with a 9.9 so I'm good on the boat restrictions over there. I'm interested in trolling. Was looking for a change of scenery. Thanks in advance.
  16. Glad to hear you enjoyed the trip!
  17. We have went ahead and secured a date and are planning on continuing the tournament as normal. We will in fact use social distancing precautions if it is still an issue by then. However the date is Saturday August 8th and with the race cancelled for fans it should allow for more entries this year. Follow this post for more information as it's provided to me I'll post more.
  18. It's just another local spoon painter. He does great work and is very reasonable on price. Not to mention the owner is a great guy which makes it very easy to support his business.
  19. Would be really rare for a king or kings to make it through to cayuga. Not saying it couldn't happen but I doubt it would be enough to effect anything
  20. No problem. I know Roy's marina on Seneca as well as fishy business on Keuka both carry them. Best way though is if you have a Facebook contact him there through his reel rage page. Scott Baldwin is an awesome guy to deal with. I use his standard size spoons as for colors you can't go wrong with any of them however a few must haves are Two face, Showcar (color in pic), rod father, and electric muffin. He has many colors and some great quality paint! Out fishes my Michigan stingers when run side x side which is saying something!!
