    Mono vs braid or nanofil

    Not sure but that’s why I said that it was a few years ago. They may have improved it since then. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Vanish was the worst fluoro I ever tried a few years ago. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Oneida trip

    Awesome report and pics. I think I saw your boat out on the West end. I took Dad chasing bass yesterday afternoon for a few hours from 13:00. We had a blast. More stinking pickerel than we could count and a dozen nice bass split about evenly lmb/smb. Added a couple of walleye and a big drum for good measure. Pretty good fishing for flat calm and sunny. Enjoy the rest of your trip!
  4. Have you tried Lance's UV Two Face on bright days? By far my biggest producer last summer.

    I use crystal. It's great for jigging in my opinion because it's bright white and you can easily see the line jump.
  6. Ah. Thanks. I tried running copper down the chute for the first time on Saturday and didn’t hook up while it was out but was worried about potential tangles. Makes me feel better that it’s possible seeing it done from a smaller footprint. Good luck with the sale! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. Nice rig, Jeremy. What are you running down the chute in that shot? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Mono vs braid or nanofil

    Also. Problems with the others... Other braids got wind knots, nanofil seems to degrade over time so you have to watch the business end, and nano braid nicked easy and lost all strength. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    I’ve tried a few braids, nanofil and suffix Nano braid. I only use fireline for spinning gear now (except for steelhead). It’s awesome. You don’t really need to go heavier than 6#. It’s actual strength is way higher than that. For cranks and sticks I tie on a 6# fluoro leader but for raps and blades I’ll actually use 8# fireline to a small barrel swivel and then about 18-24” of 10# fluoro.

    Stackers on riggers

    Bigger spoon on a shorter lead attracts them. They come in to look and, if they decide not to eat, as they’re sliding back down in the water column the smaller spoon comes by and they can’t pass it up. Had a couple of days last year where the mup rig went one after another and always that bottom spoon. Can’t guarantee it was working as described but it was working and that’s good enough.

    No problem. All 3 of those places had slips available last I knew.

    Late spawn

    Why would you resent that? I said don’t need new laws just enforce laws on the poachers. That wouldn’t affect a guy like you at all. Just the guys making 5 runs back to the truck throughout the day. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Late spawn

    Right on. I self impose a slot 16-19” (I know a lot of guys that do) and practice C&R as soon as a I have a few bags in the freezer. Don’t always need new laws. I am lucky enough to live on Oneida where it’s easier to cherrypick your keepers though. I understand guys that have to travel keeping whatever they can. I did when I had a long drive to get ‘em. Back to the original topic it would be nice if the fish could be protected up the creeks longer because they get crushed when they’re still up there on the opener. Don’t necessarily need new laws, just some enforcement on the poachers. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
