  1. Happy to hear you got out. I have not been out yet this year, which is unfortunate. Skan can be tough or great. Three years ago I ago we couldn't keep the rods in the water one day and then only two fish the next day. The weather and wind was nearly identical, so I have no idea why fishing was poor the second day. Fish should be feeding heavily on perch schools now and the key is to locate the bait. You may also have been running a bit deep for RT, but since I have not been out I may be wrong. I would have started up higher, as typically this time of year the active fish start to run higher. Fishing should only get better as cooler weather is coming and the boating crowd will be less. Looking to get out next week for a try.
  2. I have not been out yet this year, but agree the last couple of years have been a bit tougher trolling. LT are pretty easy, but RT and LLS have been a bit tight lipped. The last 2 years there were perch fry everywhere, and that makes it tough. Also, I found that fishing full moon phases can really shut the bite down. Also feel the clearer the water the better fishing for us. The recreational boat traffic seems to begin earlier and be more intense as well. The fish are there, just have to figure them out.
  3. The launch is now open. https://www.syracuse.com/outdoors/2020/08/dec-opens-up-new-622000-boat-launch-on-otisco-lake-for-public-use.html
  4. Here are photos of the No. 777. I have also attached an image of my No. 4, which has a different type of stamping. It is Generation 4, but the stamping is rotated lengthwise to the spoon and is the only spoon I have seen stamped that way. The number is also beneath the text. Unfortunately the image is not the best.
  5. Troutman 87, 777 spoon received. Thanks, it makes a great addition to the collection.
  6. Fished out of Sampson 7/4. Best screen for LT was 1 mile north. We were after silvers and got 1 small brown and 1 big pike.
  7. Troutman 87, I appreciate it. I will contact you later today.
  8. I find superline around my electric motor prop shaft all the time. Disappointing but a reality.
  9. I have not fished Skan yet this year, but my brother reported to me a guy he worked with only got 1 LT on an outing last week. Good luck.
  10. Sad news and totally unnecessary. At least I can go out of my camp. All Hail King Andrew!
  11. Both are open. Not sure about the docks at Skan. Owasco was a bit low last week, so you may need hip boots.
  12. The Rome Hatchery has a zebra mussel infestation. Not good news for many waters that receive stockings. https://www.syracuse.com/outdoors/2020/02/zebra-mussels-infest-ny-trout-hatchery-some-adirondack-waters-will-go-unstocked.html
  13. Personally, I was not pleased with the initial sentence. He should have lost all guiding and personal hunting/fishing license rights forever. He was undertaking an illegal action for personal financial gain. That being said, I respect the licensed guides and the services they perform. Their job is not an easy one and certainly done for the love of the outdoors.
  14. Just saw this post today. It saddens me to hear this news. My prayers go out to the family. I will have to make a trip down to the store very soon.
  15. Small spoons and Yo Zuri Pins Minnows. 20 to 25 feet down,
