Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United SOLD thnx
  4. My son lives in franklin mass. Since he got his Traeger grill, he is a meat fisherman. In the stocked streams by his house, He kills it with a 1/2 crawler on a slow death hook. We just did this Sunday. Place a small splitshot 12'' above the hook and reel slow and steady. In two hours at 2 spots, I caught 3, he caught 5 & we kept the 3 that were 14-15'' for the Traeger smoker. the browns, brookies and rainbows could not pass up the slow roll of the slow death hook. Just sayin...... good luck
  5. yes i missed the 6 hours--probably 7-8 lol but i am sure the adirondacks have similar places---look for a used canoe for the family to take, no registration for paddle power may become a summer tradition--avoid the black fly time though good luck coach
  6. https://www.nhstateparks.org/visit/state-parks/lake-francis-state-park --lake francis state park in northern NH--great fishing in 2 story lake and rent a canoe there https://www.frostpondcamps.com --excellant 200 acre brook trout lake in maine's wilderness--camp and rent a canoe--nightcrawlers and non-lead splitshot all you need i am sure there are similar places in NY. Frost pond is a phenomenal place--true wilderness for miles and great fishing. i would definitely rent a canoe as having the boys on the water will be great memories. you may even buy a used one by your home for little $$.( 100-300) at the 2 spots I recommended, cell service is spotty at best. This is a great trip for you all. good luck coach
  7. if you do sodus point, which is a great suggestion--the finger lakes are right there for alternative days--i am partial to cayuga. good luck
  8. FLEAS SUCK I fished the finger lakes as a young man and into my early thirties, no such thing as a FLEA-- 56 now. Two years ago I took my family from Florida to Niagra Falls and towed my boat. We stayed on cayuga lake for 5 days and it was mid july and we hammered the fish.. Months before, I found this site and learned about those little monsters. I am so glad I did as I prepared my equipment. We had a spectacular five days and caught the slam 4/5 days. I will never fish there again during flea season. I hated the heavy line stuff. When I retire in a few years, we will hit it in may or june or late sept. to avoid the pests anyway--thanks to LOU for preparing me good fishin coach
  9. i bought the one on walleye central for $60 plus $ 10 shipping thanks for the tip coach
  10. My advice is to follow thru with roys marina. Live bait is a great way to learn Hire a guide once or fish w/ a knowledgeable fisherman to get started. Do not buy anything til you get ideas from the experts--- things change in the summer as the FLEAS come out--a nasty little beast that mess up your line in summer good luck coach

  13. thanks sent them email love the quick response coach
  14. Hi folks, When I was a kid, all the landlock trollers in Maine & NH had these Boxes with windshield wiper motors with a downeast rod holder on top as rod jiggers. They were very effective working streamer flies. Eventually, they were made small and manageable and mounted to the gunnels. ( original ones were in 2'x2' plywood boxes and put in the middle of the boat and worked two fly rods) Cannon made one called "THE ENTICER OR EXCITOR". I am looking for one or two of these homemade or cannon units if any of you come across them. I passed up on a couple aluminum boxes two years ago. I wish i hadn't. No one makes them anymore. I want to use them but also to keep the technique alive with my kids and grand kids. thanks for your help coach

  19. yes sir you are correct I never mentioned the river trout fishing--so many rivers and tailwaters to fish for BIG trout It is stupid good.--just not my style check out the hootch running thru atlanta --chatahootchee river I drifted it with a guide years ago--awesome
  20. Hi folks, I wish I thought to post this a few years ago I am a transplanted New Englander finishing my 30 years of teaching in Florida ( 3 left) I grew up trolling Lakes in Maine, NH and NY for trout and salmon. In the last 10 years i have found reservoirs in the South that have great Trout, Walleye and Striper fishing. These are big fish too,and weather is rarely a factor . Most ramps easily accommodate Deep Vee boats up to 20'. Accommodations are very reasonable in the area as well. You all have everything you need to score-- downriggers, planer boards, spoons, plugs. Striper fishing is a livebait affair though. Licenses are cheap. Gas is cheap. 4 guys towing their own boat (900 miles) could easily do a week for $600-700 all inclusive-(gas, rental house, bait, license, food & including a day with a guide. or fly to atlanta or closer airport to area you choose, rent a car and do 3 days with a guide-- for 4 guys-all inclusive $900 each +/- 5 areas to consider Trolling that I know well--many have 3 species of bass too. Many of these lakes have nothing but Nat'l forest surrounding them, real wilderness fishing--no homes at all--they are all deep--up to 300'--Fishing is great year round as all lakes are dam controlled and keep water frigid. Lake cheoah never gets above 60 degrees ever. normal air temps-- In february-25 degrees at 7 am, 50 degrees at 1pm & march 35 degrees at 7 am and 55-60+ at 1 pm. Roads are in great condition but can be STEEP so IF you tow a 19' lund loaded with a 6 cyl pickup your truck will strain. (sole reason I jumped from a Tacoma to a Tundra 4 yrs ago) Lots of wildlife everywhere too 1.South Carolina --Very good Trout in Lake Jocassee and Stripers/walleye in Lake Hartwell 2.East Tennessee-Rainbows and Lakers in Watuaga Reservoir 3.North Georgia- Lake Burton-Big Browns & Rainbows, Walleyes and Hybrid stripers--Lake Seed & Lake Rabun right below dam (18' boat max) 4.Central North Carolina-Lake Fontana-Good Rainbows,walleye some browns and muskies, Lake Cheoah-all 3 trout and muskies, lake Calderwood- browns,rainbows and trophy smallies-(18' boat max), Lake santeelah- good brown, Rainbows, walleye 5.western North Carolina--Lake Hiwassie- good Stripers, good walleye, few trout, Lake apalachia-Browns, a few Rainbows, good smallies, Lake Notteley (Ga) -good stripers if anyone is interested in a southern trip feel free to PM me--i have guide contacts i'd recommend, houses i have rented, bait shops, restaurants and good knowledge of all of those lakes or call/text 8 am-8 pm 561-301-4169 coach
