  1. So this is boats only?
  2. Skaneateles 2017

    Had some guy park his kayak 5' from my baits this morning. I could have tossed a rig in his lap with no problem.
  3. What are the details? Fees, limits, rules, etc?
  4. Finger Lakes Crayfish?

    When I was a kid, I used to put a trap in a creek to catch them as bait. Or sometimes you could just flip over a few rocks.

    Is that one of the rear drag models? I've been using this one with 8lb mono for shore fishing Skaneateles. It's worked well so far, but there feels like there's flex in the reel seat on the rod. After the bows and landlocks get sketchy, I'll tear into it and see what's going on.
  6. Right or Left Hand?

    Spent my life using spinning reels, so I go for left-hand retrieve on baitcasters. I'm not fond of switching hands after a cast anyway.
  7. Any skaneateles updates?

    Worm and marshmallow, and added half a chartreuse and red foam hearing protector on one of them.
  8. Any skaneateles updates?

    Parked at the top of the hill and hiked down to Lourdes yesterday. I think I was the only human for about a mile in every direction. It was absolute serenity. Just me, a few quackers, honkers, and a cople of crows. The sun even made an appearance, Caught my limit, threw 2 bows back, kept one and the 2 salmon. What a terrible morning,
  9. for sale : usa 14' Boat

    Whereabouts?
  10. Boat registrations and State

    It's funny. I asked a DEC officer a few questions a while back, mostly about what was going on with lake levels and fishery health. His reply was. "I don't know these things, they just give me a gun and a book of tickets to write." Glorified tax collectors.
  11. Mono backing on braid,wire & copper

    Tape is fine too, but who doesn't have a spool of cheap, crappy mono laying around?
  12. Wish I had the cash and freezer space right now.
  13. A buddy of mine has a Lexa 300 series. It's a great reel. I almost bought one myself after trying his, but went with an Okuma Citrix 350 series insteaed.
  14. Otisco Ice Fishing 2016 Thread

    I've seen more than one humped Tiger as well, but that sure looks like him. I've caught one missing half it's face a couple of times too. I call him Harvey Dent.
  15. Otisco Ice Fishing 2016 Thread

    I've caught him twice in the last 2 years. I've seen him caught at least a half dozen other times. He hung out on the South side of the Causeway until the lake got so low this last summer.
