  1. Greetings, When they are in an aggressive mood (not often) they will hit all 3 hooks. Most of the time they will hit the 3rd hook and occasionally I will have to put a 4th stinger hook on when they are just nipping at the worm. Back in the day the only crawler rigs that were available were 3 hook so that is all I ever used.
  2. Haven't used the little guy but you got me thinking. I wonder how the Lindy little joe would work? I also thought about trying the Lazy Ike.
  3. Thanks Big Al, I use mostly the T 4 and the U 20. Yellow and black. Yellow and red. Orange and black in that order. I use a whole nightcrawler and occasionally use a stinger hook on the end if they are short striking. Yes #2 hooks. I usually use about a 12" dropper with a 30" leader. As far as speed goes I just hang it over the side and when it looks right I send it back. The action on this lure is absolutely mesmerizing. Believe it or not I caught this 55" Musky on it last year. Good luck.
  4. Thanks for the info. I will.
  5. This lure is very speed sensitive. Slow as she goes. If you troll too fast she will spin on you. I normally use a 3 way swivel with a 30 inch leader and a 1 to 2 oz. dropper about 12" long. Strictly old school but that's what works for me. I very seldom fish big water or fish deeper than 30' so I have no need for riggers or divers. I haven't tried it with any lures other than the flatfish. I assume it would work just as well with the other lures.
  6. Here is a lure I made and have been using since the 1970's. I have been keeping it a secret for 50 years and figured it's time to share. It's a flatfish with the hooks removed and a crawler rig attached to the back. DYNOMITE!
  7. We decided to try fall fishing instead this year. Looking at the middle of September. We narrowed it down to Guffin bay or Black lake. How is the fishing at that time?
  8. Looking for any information on Hi Tech Tackle. The owners name is Dave and I know he is from up state New York. He made spoons and crawler rigs and sold them at the Harrisburg Sportsman show several years ago. (see pic). I have his phone number but it is out of service. Anyone know what happened to him or how to contact him? Thanks.
  9. Thank you for all your help. You have been very kind.
  10. Thanks again. Sounds like a plan to me. I am going to contact them today.
  11. Thanks. Looking into Guffin Bay Resort. May be a better fit for the kind of fishing I am after. Only reason I was looking at Henchen is because they allow pets. I usually fish the Canadian side but can't get there this year.
  12. Thanks for the info guys. I don't have the equipment for salmon fishing. No line counter reels. No downriggers. Just medium spinning equipment.
  13. I will be there week of July 11-18. Meet me at Henchens and I will give you something to scream about. If you have a set that is. A hole.
  14. Hi All, I will be staying at Henchen Marina the week of July 11-18. I have a small boat (17' Alumacraft 115 mercury) and am a little leary of taking it out on Lake Ontario. I plan on fishing the bay only. Just want to catch some fish and have fun. What fish should I target in the bay? Pike? Pickerel? SMB? Sheephead? etc. Troll? Cast? Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks
  15. Thanks. I think I will change out the fittings on my tank first and see what happens.
  16. Can you give me a link to purchase the fuel tank? It has to fit a 1985 Yamaha 7 HP.
  17. I have a 6 gallon fuel tank that is leaking at the connection. My question is this. If I cut off the end of the hose that connects to the tank and just submerge the cut end into the fuel tank would that work? Would fuel reach the motor that way?
  18. Thanks Mitch, I will get my map out and start marking spots.
  19. Wanted to share the replica mount I had made of the musky. Enjoy.
  20. Hello Everyone, Hope all are staying safe and well. I have a question. I fish the St. Lawrence river in the Gananoque area more precisely the Bateau Channel. I am fairly accomplished at fishing for pike but I am completely incompetent when it comes to fishing for Smallmouth bass. I plan on fishing this area the week of July 7th to the 14th. If anyone knows some good spots for bass and wants to make some DOE RAY ME and take my wife and I and my 13 year old grandson out for a day I would be greatful. We can use my boat and equipment. I have an Alumacraft 175 Navigator with a 115 merc and yamaha 7hp kicker. Thanks.
  21. 55" 50 lbs. (estimate) caught and released from the SLR Thousand Islands. Caught on 10 lb test while trolling for walleye. This cow took a yellow bead crawler rig. My wife and 3 grandsons were with me at the time. An experience they will never forget.
