  1. Nice too see you made it out there !! Nice job !
  2. I believe both I bay and sodus have web cams. The Gennessee definately has web cam. Maybe try a post LOU for launch status.
  3. Go to rec center town of Ontario, get hrs they are open and pay for day. I would call them first to make sure when they are open because not all web sites are up to date. Or launch out of Irondequoit bay or sodus. I-Bay is 11.3 miles west of bear creek but sodus is closer to bear creek. Where are you travelling from ?
  4. Oh ! Thanks for info. The description on town website doesn't mention paying at rec center. Still have to provide car/boat registration ?
  5. Oh yeah, it was suggested to me not to bother fishing shallow gin clear water. Stained is better.
  6. Was a few guys on here few weeks ago during break in weather that were catching browns in 8-20'. A couple in our area and in buffalo. Warmer pockets were key outta bear creek. All were using shallow sticks. All reported break offs as well stating they though it might be laker or steely based on how they were peeling drag. Based on that, actual reports and recent reports, might want to start shallow. Just my op
  7. You do know you have to pay a fee for the day to the town and they only accept payment by mail ?
  8. I agree with fish master re YouTube. I would call company you plan to buy from for specs. I was looking at tx-44 walleye boards and found out they hold 12oz + downrigger ball or dipsy. But don't pull well with lighter tackle. Maybe that's what you want. The medium size boards, at least for me, seem more ideal for what I want to do, but probably won't be beyond 30 fow deep trolling
  9. Thank you
  10. Thanks for tip !
  11. Oh OK. So tighten first, then put dipsy/planer in water and loosen til it goes out. Sound about right ?
  12. Magda 20 question My first ever trolling rod. What is the purpose of the chrome knob to left of star drag ? How do I adjust it appropriately ?
  13. They hold up to 3 oz ? Do they stay out away from boat ?
  14. Yeah we're talking same language here. The pro weight system consists of snap weight up to 3oz. Nice thing about the weights is they are 99% lead free. If I lose one its pretty safe to environment. Have you seen Romanaks 50/50 method on YouTube ? 1st time I saw it I thought that's a good place to start for someone like myself with minimal experience. Comes with chart for weights, different speeds as well. Fun watching him catch walleye But for where I fish in western finger lakes, which are some of the smallest/shallowest, I think these techniques fit them and my personal style best. Here's my boat. I have another bass seat I put in when I don't bring the cooler
  15. Yeah that's what I thought too. I have the minis and used them last year but they don't handle much more than 6' crank,stickbait,or light spinners,. They do OK with spoons too. But just need to cover top 30' of water column and 22's seem like they will do well for that. Below 30' I'm using dipsy divers. Best example I can give is Canadice lake. Its called "bathtub" for good reason. Can run planers on top water column on one side of the boat and dipsys off the back. Covering offshore structure. That's the plan
