  1. I only have surface temp... it was warmer 47 and change.
  2. Trolled from hughes to ginna and part way back (630-1230) w insuffishent.. browns, skippys, bow, laker, coho, and a smallmouth all boated. went roughly 25/35. biggest was10#. early bite was negative for us... 2 were break offs... vanish line= vanished lure, fish, and money from wallet to replace! Seaguar on everything now. black silver/ black white sticks were best as was jointed in natural finish. good over all trip but wish i got into the king frenzy to the west!
  3. Great job and thanks for posting pics. Wondering how far east the kings went... i fished from hughes to bouys at Ginna poked around briefly in 25-50 fow but no hooks.. every other species cooperated but no teenagers.
  4. Great job those are some stout numbers! Got me second guessing my sunday plan...anything other than brownies? and how do u not lose spoons running that shallow. I had a hell of a time 2 wednesdays ago snaggin bottom when in those depths.
  5. Awesome job on the LT! Lakers chewin on some bees. Great pix and thanks for posting!
  6. Brokeoff- what is happening? That is discouraging for sure. I have caught browns off riggers down 3' in 7 fow so maybe slide diver not needed? whats the advantage.... more stealth i suppose. rather keep it simple and just use rigger but if slide diver is a necessity to get larger/more fish then i will do it. thanks everyone!
  7. what # flouro?. funny u say that about lite bites since thats what i own. that spring thing held in place with tubing is kind of mickey mouse. what color is best? black... clear? thanks for help
  8. Whats the best or most common way of setting up a slide diver rig? all mono? what pound backing, anyone use fireline or power pro? Thanks for help.
  9. Awesome!... I am a bit jealous! Thanks for the post and great pics.
  10. not sure I launched a 18' lund with no issue. drive straight in and out of the chute though. very shallow on east side trim motor accordingly!
  11. Nice job! Pretty sure u were setting up as we trolled heading east in the black lund. We boated 7 browns. Got 2 near ginna then the others to the east. Silver black seemed the best color. Clear clear water for sure! kinda curious how the two drift boats... and the guy anchored in the restricted area did.
  12. I never get to step #6! Tastes too good!
  13. Thanks Guys! Hoping the next trip goes smoother and is more productive... !
  14. diawa saltist 30's! i used to use reels with 24" retrieve and hated to bring them in while pulling gear let alone with a fish. Stepped on a boat that had saltists on the dipseys and I fell in love. high speed retrieve is great for keeping tension and reeling down while working a fish. Torque is a non issue to me..., plenty of it. Drags our awesome! Granted the line counter is somewhat ill placed but as others have said you get used to it &/or just shift grip a couple inches higher. i use clarions on coppers and long cores. love them too. Good luck!
  15. Launched out of river at 330pm ish for a quick trip. Was greeted at the end of pier heads with lots of floating ice. Was not sure as we approached if we could get thru but it was no big deal. Trolled to the west in semi stained water. The really stained from river was heading east. (should we have trolled east?) boated one brown on the initial west troll near Russell. had another definite hit and brief fight then nothing. We thought we had some other hook ups but after ending trip with 2 snags began to wonder if those other "hits" were snags. kinda thought gear was running high enough to avoid snags but considered inlet pipes or some other man made item lying in front of russell as being the culprit. Fished 9-20fow, roughly. Brown hit a chart/white stickbait. I still dont have a spring program figured out, but its too early to get too concerned.
  16. great looking flies! Keep em coming! My order will be coming soon!
  17. you bring up some good points Jason. I started doing it while fishing the fingers so fish size might be a factor as well as bait size i suppose. Though sawbellies can get pretty big in Seneca too. Kind of a pain to switch the fly around. based on input so far it looks like i might not change what i am doing it seems to work for the most part. Thanks
  18. I have done something similar with salmon also. I used panko breadcrumbs both plain and spicy. I placed the formed patty in pankos and coated both sides then fried. nice crispy coating. Definitely a great way to eat any fish. kids liked it too! I made it "healthy" by putting it in a wrap with a bunch of dill pickles and tomato.
  19. any cut. just cut across grain and in small strips.
  20. The culprit to 95% of my broken hooks was the guy wielding the pliers and yanking, wrenching, and twisting the hook out of the fishes mouth(i am guilty too). the other 5% was stepping on the hook.
  21. luremaking.com. I bought black eagle claw laser sharp 3x very happy so far. reasonable price too
