  1. I'll check out that podcast. I have been listening to FatAZ muskie podcast, and has been pretty interesting, plus theres always Hookshots every two weeks, but can always use more. And nope, no paddle tails. Another one for the list! Hehe. Started on the opener with a bass flippin stick, along with a t60 flatfish and 3 bucktails. Now I have an actual muskie combo and just had to put all the lures in a styrofoam cooler as I ran out of room in my usual box. Figure'd the ol' lady would've had my head by now, but she just sprung for some glide baits as a gift! She gets the fishin' obsession, thankfully.

  2. Agreed, but in the same boat. Safe to say they're not biting in the weeds, at least not yet. Next tactic is finding bait in the open water. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. At least we're all consistent! Definitely some educated fish. I used to think the pressure came from bass anglers, however all but two boats I've seen were after the muskies. All good though. Seems like its definitely a lake better suited to trolling, I'm just not set up for it, nor am I much of a troller in general. At least not yet...

  4. Update: Still no muskie. Fished yesterday and today from 4am to about noon. Sunday was east side, today was west side. Water temp is still low, 62-64 depending on where you are in the lake. Water is getting quite dirty though, probably lost a foot of visibility since the first trip. My white bucktail dissapeared from polarized view at about 3 feet, perhaps a bit less. Got a few glide baits, swimbaits, and a bondy so at least get to mix it up a bit next trip. Did get a slammer pickeral though, if there is such a thing, hehe. Maybe that means I'm at least in the ballpark? Only place I havent tried yet is the open basin... thoughts for next time... \M/. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Rough business. Ill check those spinners out, I've heard them brought up in a number of conversations, so they gotta be good! Any of you get into the 'skies, throw some pics up! Id love to see them. I'll be sure to do the same, and I'd live to say thanks to this community called LOU as well. You've all helped me out a ton, and I just hope I can help someone else out in the future. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Very true, I think throwing bass(esque), or rather just smaller lures for em, you can get away with less. My gear didn't start falling apart until I scratched the double 10 itch. Between that and casting a T60 flatfish, it just shredded over the course of a few weeks lol. Just my limited experience. I do have a heavy bass rod in the boat for throwing Xraps when the arms need a break. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I'd say get some good gear. Though I've yet to catch one, what I can inform on is just the resistance of the lures will destroy common stuff. Ive stripped out gears on bass reels, ended up buying a Calcutta 400B, then my heavy flippin stick that I thought I could get by with started falling apart. I can feel the reel seat warping and the handle disintegrating due to flexing, ended up with a chaos tackle rod thats en route now, and thats all before getting a bite... but I can only imagine the sickening feeling of getting one on to have all your equipment give out. Never know, that first one could be a 50. Other than that? Prepare for your casting thumb to be quite calloused lol. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Ifish, thanks. Just trying to be the best I can be, in whatever endeavor i'm involved in. However, if ya can't laugh at yourself along the way, what fun is it? There's a certain amount of humour in this one for sure. Especially 2 Pollacks fighting Waneta whitecaps in a leaky 12' jon boat with a 2 horse! On that note... struck out again today, as did the nephew. Still no follows from what I can tell, water was pretty churned up though. 66 degrees pretty steady for the short time we had to fish (8-10:30). Went up the east side again. Seems like all the activity on the graph is deep. Probably where the efforts will be focused. Do have some new gear on the way since I could feel my cheapo rod coming apart, so purchased a Chaos Tackle 9' Mh and a new bait or two. Maybe that'll come with some luck? And on that note, thank you all for your tips and luck sent my way. It's greatly appreciated, and as soon as I connect, come hell...since we already have high water... there will be pics posted!

  9. Update: fished today from dawn to about 10:30. South end and up the west side. Still no follows. Looks like algae may have bloomed, lots of particles in the water. 68-70 degree water. Great looking water, just nothing raised. My brother struck out on the bass as well. Few other anglers said they havent had much either. Lake in a transition? Try again tomorrow morning. Shall not be deterred!!! Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. On a quest to get a muskie this year. Thought I'd post here as a bit of an online journal. Made it out today from about 8:30am to noon. Fished boy scout camp north to no avail. Third time out this year and not even a follow, throwing bucktails, spinnerbaits, and cranks. Maybe pick up a few glide baits of some sort? Mid to upper 60's for surface temp. Hmm... off to ponder.

  11. Penn Yan launch should be good to go. Haven't launched myself to see how the channel is but been to the launch as of a week ago, docks are there and all seems open. Saw one truck and trailer parked. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Damn. Had half a mind to try it myself. Seneca has been a bust, at least for my casting game. Never fished Keuka much in open water season, but think this year is the year to start. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. They look gorgeous! As do the rest of what I've seen from you on here. Not too far away so i will be contacting you hopefully in a week or two about grabbing some. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. You guys do casting spoons as well, correct? Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Indeed, Esox. Unfortunately ran into some hang ups and he was unable to join. Still, made it out solo for about and hour and a half. Messed up location, short on time, no system or routine for drilling and deploying.... it was a mess on an outing. But fun nonetheless . Had one hit jigging but missed it, nothing else. Shall try again in the AM now that things are a little less scrambled lol. Old man might join if hes available, and if we hit fish hoping to get my little man out after he's out of school.
