  1. Worm and marshmallow, and added half a chartreuse and red foam hearing protector on one of them.
  2. 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,
  3. 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.
  4. Tape is fine too, but who doesn't have a spool of cheap, crappy mono laying around?
  5. Wish I had the cash and freezer space right now.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Humpy sighting! I haven't seen him since about June. I was beginning to fear the worst...
  10. Happy New Year everyone! It sure started out good. Landed this 25" Rainbow this morning - my personal best! She was full of eggs and healthy after a half hour on the stringer, so she got released back into Skaneateles...
  11. The 5th one is probably my favorite. My mom's been going to Skaneateles since she was a child. I got her a fishing license for Mother's day. She got her first Rainbow out of that lake at 81 years old.
  12. Those are beauties. I still have an old Garcia Kingfisher that I still use.
  13. I drove by the north end today and saw a few vehicles parked and a handful of folks out on the ice.
