  1. Try and click on Near Shore Marine Forecast. It's a good resource and usually accurate. Cheers!
  2. Great report John, thanks! That Kings stomach contents were impressive.
  3. Yes, spoons off the boards W split shot ahead of leader swivel.
  4. I stand corrected killerk. TY sir.
  5. Went out with Pops and my brother on Stingray Charters. We wanted to study how the charter boys run gear in order to sharpen our game. Fished Sodus West to Pultneyville and back on the 8 hour run. It was a Michigan Stinger program off boards 100’ back. We fished in 6-20 FOW with most strikes coming in 10 FOW or less. Bloody Nose, Wonderbread, Purple Frog, Kevorkian, and Spring Chicken were producers with the fish liking copper backed spoons. I was troubled at the number of lamprey scarred fish that we boated, (does the DEC have a control program)? Finished the day 25 for 26 with multiple doubles, and one triple resulting in a species tri-fecta, (brown, rainbow, steelhead), unbelievable! I highly recommend Stingray to anyone interested. Capt Ken generously shared info that I know will improve my crews success. Tight lines!
  6. Pops always asks me before a run, “did you put the plug in?”. Then tells me the story about how he swamped the boat 40 years ago. I laugh every time!
  7. Knox, With 2 colors of lead core off boards, how long of a leader to the lure presentation? Or is the setup lead core, mono, then fluorocarbon tippet? Thanks!
  8. Great report, and thank you for sharing about your dad! I just returned to NYS after a long absence, and fish with my 80 yr old father every chance I get. He really lights up when we get out and run the gear. Catching fish is secondary to the mission. But thanks to all the great tips on this site, we are bringing more fish to the boat. Cheers!
  9. LOL! Not sure how that schedule tagged along......
  10. Launched this AM and fished in 12-18 fow East bound. Water temp of 37 degrees. We ran Michigan Stingers off planer boards and went 6 for 6 during the 3 hour run. Gold perch, Carmel dolphin, Sodus Point buckeye, and Fat Nancy’s all scored. Great to finally get a line wet!
  11. Thanks for the report. I’m planning a run Friday. Any suggestions where to launch on Irondequoit bay, (23’ Grady), ? Thanks Bruce!

    Hemlock Lake report?

    Went to South boat launch on Hemlock this AM. Shore ice too thin to walk on. There is open water in the shallows. Should be able to shore fish soon. Saw two bald eagles on the ice edge. Beautiful morning for a drive!

    I had the same thought while ice-fishing last week. Why not?
