  1. I'd feel alot better about this if it was a straight up effort to reduce government spending. But it looks to me like the moneys not spent here will be diverted into significantly increasing our military spending. And I don't see that as justified right now. If we've got a choice between spending it on improving the lakes or more military spending, I'll take the former right now please.
  2. Salmon farts.
  3. Rainbow trout are often called bows. Short for rainbow.
  4. I've got a new in the box 308 I found in a lost box of stuff in my basement 6 months ago. Best I can recall, I bought it about 25 yrs ago. I'll have to put it on a rod for Spring. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  8. Regarding shooting from just off the road..... I was a Sportsmans Education Instructor for the DECs hunter safety program for awhile. This is going back maybe 15 yrs. At the time we were teaching that you couldn't shoot from the maintained portion of the road. That included the shoulder, drainage ditches or any part maintained, which includes areas mowed by the highway department. I suspect each Officer is going to have a different threshold of where they will ticket. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. I make some of my own spinners. As far as sizing goes...... In my experience each body and blade maker seems to have their own ideas about size. Unfortunately, I have found that the only good solution is to buy a variety of sizes and see what works well together when you've got them all on front of you. Most of the time I've found that the bodies are sold by weight (and they are reasonably accurate) and the blades by size. No 2 makers have the same size 2 for instance though. Best I can say is buy the weight body you want and then use a blade that is as long as the body. That seems to give mine the best balance. And twirl them in your fingers at various points during assembly. They should hang down straight and twirl straight. If they wobble when you twirl them they wont spin right in the water. Tweek them as needed to get them to twirl straight in your fingers. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. In my opinion, it is a complete waste of energy to complain about people keeping tigers and pike in waters that are not being managed as trophy fisheries. And not all lakes should be managed as trophy fisheries. If it bothers you, You are better off fishing other waters that are managed as trophy fisheries. This is not unlike the people who complain about anglers keeping trout in the tribs. The DEC is managing it with the expectation that a percentage of caught fish are kept. Its only a problem because of your expectations. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. 44 mag killed alot of deer for me. Hit them where you are supposed to and it does the job. For squirrels, I would want a target grade 22. Squirrels are small targets. Lots of options. Mine is a Marvel target 22 upper on a 1911 frame.
  12. What kind of distances do you expect to shoot? I used a .44 mag Ruger Redhawk in cover for years. No complaints at all with that combination. But if I were expecting 100yd shots I'd have chosen differently.
  13. It varies a bit depending on exactly where you are and even which side of the river you are fishing from. Set it high and if you get a clean drift keep setting it lower until you are indicating bottom. Depending on where you are when you start...... try 3' and go from there. Most of the fishing I was doing was in 4.5-5' of water.
  14. If they tasted like cream ale I'd keep every one of them!
  15. Boggle, i was down there this morning. We were fishing from a boat, but upstream of the island. Lots of small cats, a couple 4-5lb'ers. And a bonus walleye. Bite turned off completely once the sun was shining down in the gorge. If you dont mind a ton of 12" fish to find a couple bigger ones, it is worth another trip. Bring lots of nightcrawlers.
