    Turkey 2018

    Those are some nice birds great jobs guys opening day for me and the wife was a bust do to some hunters showing up late to the party after we were working a couple nice toms . So went back solo next morning and called in 4 hens and two nice toms dropped this 20 lb bird with a 8 inch beard and 1 inch spurs about 1 hour after first light . Heading to Arizona for a couple days to see my daughter then back at it hopefully the 2nd bird will come quick as i have a knee surgery on the 14th . Thats a bummer hopefully it does not slow me down for long lots of fish waiting to be caught .

    Cut Bait

    I will tell you that fish from the grocery store is probably not that fresh and how nose what it has been washed. If you want nice fresh bait for meat rigs all you have to do is cut your bait strips out of any silver sided fish that you catch like salmon ,browns. steelhead if you want to freeze it and use latter you can put in kosher salt and a little borax and it will last much better after you take it out of freezer . I have been using king salmon skin the last 2 years works great .

    What you can do to fire those henned up birds is use a tom decoy in full strut and gobble at them alot it will piss off the dominant bird and bring him running . Good luck !

    Coast Guard Boarded My Boat Yesterday

    Thats funny it takes me months to get my boats PV inspection done and i have to pay for that .
  12. Went to Oswego on monday for first trip of the year with my dad that is now 80 years old and really starting to slow down so i try to spend some quality time with him when i can . Lady O was good to us after a little work we were able to dial the browns in went 19 for 21 with all fish running 4 to 10 lbs . Was a stick bite for sure with 12 to 18 feet being key and trying to tick bottom with mag lips , mutzu and storm jr thundersticks boards and 2 colors of lead . My new weighted steel outfit worked great with 90 feet of wire in prop wash and i will say it was much nicer then any copper that i have used . Most fish came out of bright green water and brown and dark green sticks were best it was a goby bight for sure with the browns full of them . The old man had a blast after a long boring winter and so did i with my dad .
  13. Thats for sure its funny how when i was a little kid i tested his patience and now he test mine but we always manage to have a great time and catch a lot of fish .I try to get him out there when i can its great to see him have a good time because i no it wont last forever .
  14. MY LEAD CORE SET UP IS CORE TO 25 FEET TOP SHOT THEN LEADER 8 FOOT LEADER 15 FLORO I RUN THIS DOWN THE SHOOT I USE A STEARN PLANER AFTER LEAD IS OUT ATTACH TO BACKING AND LET WAY BACK . THEN I USE A WAIGHTED STEEL ROD SAME SET UP WITH TOP SHOT AND LEADER AND LET OUT 90 FEET OF WIRE AND FISH THE PROP WASH JUST OF BOTTOM . THE STEARN PLANER IS A TROLLING BOBBER MADE BY CHURCE TACKLE IT ALLOWS YOU TO PUT TWO FLAT LINES DOWN THE SHOOT . DEEP DIVING STICKS WERE USED ON BOARDS .

    Meat

    Was thinking of running more meat this year then i have in the past and have made some meat strips out of king salmon skin with pretty good luck but was thinking i might try buying some large shiners used for ice fishing and brine them then just pine them into meat heads has anybody tried this ?

    losing lake trout

    Single hooks and when that trout hits the surface and starts to trash and role just reduce pressure a little and slow things down so that he stays under water and you will lose alot less fish .Keeping him swimming and not thrashing is the key .

    Washing hands and lures

    So wanted to get some opinions on what people do to keep hands and lures clean i am always trying to make the days catch beater then the last and scent control and attractants are a big part . Up to this point been using free and clear dish soap on the boat for boat cleaning ,hand and lure washing its non toxic and biodegradable and scent free .Would like to no what other use and has anybody tried the pro-cure bad azz hand and lure soap .It is sold in 4 oz bottle so thinking its not really the best option . thanks

    Washing hands and lures

    Washing hands and lures

    Yes thanks i did see the 411 show and the free and clear that i use is pretty good but with the fish being able to smell in parts per million all ways looking for something better with things like fueling boat and sunblock being used. My guess would be tournament anglers and good charter captains take scent very seriously . I see the guys on the west coast using gloves when rigging baits and we all ways rigged baits with rubber gloves for giant tuna .
