  1. Newborn at home and a shoulder injury has kept the trips few and far between, on top of being short. But I have managed one 36" fish boated, but more follows than the last three years combined. So pretty positive when I stop to think about it. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Badass! Looking to do the same with my 12' Meyers, hand tiller trolling motor next to the outboard just isn't cutting it anymore trying to hold in the wind. Thanks for the pics and walkthrough. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Nice work! Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Yea! Now that's a hell of a fish. Congratulations! Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Forgot to add, tough is 2 fish for me this season. But both fish were healthy as hell with some serious shoulders on em. I'm sure those that know what they're doing will do well. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. It's been a tough year for me, but im also new at the muskie game still. Channel is definitely shallow for sure. Unfortunately I cannot participate due to work, but looking forward to seeing the results. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. My nephew had the same thing happen on a big ol' buck he'd hunted an entire season for. Made him switch to fixed a few years back, and he pointed me to the G5's this year. My old Magnatech needed an overhaul this year (strings, arrows, tune), and if things go accordingly, I'll be putting in for elk and moosefor 2021 seasons and beyond, so that was the final call for switching to fixed. I know people do, but doesn't seem right to throw a mechanical at something that big. Bows now "overgunned" for whitetail but I should be good and used to it if those dream tags make their way to my pocket. Good luck to you all!

  8. I'll be running G5 Montecs this year. First year with fixed blades but trying to get away from mechanicals. Never had a bad experience with em, but don't want to either. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Tried Genesee pier tonight for a brief trip, one bump but not sure of it was a short strike or fish contacting the mainline, assuming the latter. Another guy reported he had a small one on but lost it. Pretty slow from the sounds of it but there are fish there. On the upswing! Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Ill be starting trips here in the next few days hopefully. They're not there en masse, but i know a couple early birds have entered the Salmon river, so one would think theres a few starting to at least stage at others. Good luck! Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Congrats!!! Keep us updated on the likes/dislikes, if you would. I'll likely be making a major boat purchase in the next year or so and Vexus is a major contender, but haven't heard much on real owner reviews. TIA and keep rippin lip! Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. I fish Waneta, mostly because I'm only 15 minutes away. Small lake, so you know they are there and your lures are getting seen, but it gets hammered hard. I used to think the bass got hit hard until i learned to distinguish muskie vs bass anglers. I would say most of fishing is for muskie. Lots of pleasure boaters and jet skis as well. BUT, the fish are there... this is only my second season targeting skis with 4 total caught so I wont try to say I know what works and what doesn't. But I see a lot of trollers. Weeds are heavy this year, and you have weeds and a couple points to target basically. Best of luck wherever you go! Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Awesome! Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. I'll be out this weekend sometime. Looking for some Northerns on either Seneca or Keuka. Every so often they kick out some giants, I'd like to find one of 'em. Nice pics! Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Nice! Curious to hear how the new Assault stick performs. I picked up some european rapalas and some of the big softbaits they use overseas for their oversize pike. Getting excited for the toothy critter seasons! Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. From my understanding, it's a result of alewifes as prey. It causes a Thiamine deficiency which affects the eggs. I thought it just made them soft so the eggs never hatch, but would not surprise me to see it manifest in several forms. Thats about the extent of my knowledge on it though.

  17. Thanks guys. I never knew they were in there. Looks like they'd grow some giant pike, hehe. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. Found these swimming around a discharge on Seneca with some carp. I know in the Hardwater thread theres mention of Rudd, but I have always seen them gold colored. Anal fin looks to be a bit different as well. Other than that though it just looks like a huge shiner minnow. Thoughts? Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. So thats what those are. They've been an increasing occurrence in my observations in Seneca as well. I remember seeing them as a young teenager years ago and never knew what they were. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. In regards to the overall fishery, I made it out on the 31st and was able to get a handful of dandy pike. What was the exciting though was they were all fat and clean, really healthy fish. Usually any fish out of Seneca that I get are skinny and covered in wounds of some sort, regardless of species. Kinda got my hopes up for the lake making a turn for the better in the near future.

  21. Congrats! Awesome fish. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. And looks to be a hell of a first fish. Congrats! Casting or trolling? Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  23. Well crap.... I just found out about this place last week and was planning a trip. Seemed quite large. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
