  1. Oh, also, we like to run a split shot 5-6' ahead of the lures. This helps the small floaters get a little deeper and helps keep grass, etc from fouling the lure.
  2. My son and I brought our boat over from Vermont last spring for the first time. We launched at Mexico Point and did well when the weather was cooperative (wind blowing warm water in to shore, but not TOO windy!). We caught most of our fish on Bay Rats off the boards and Stingers on 1-2 colors of leadcore off each side of the boat. Most of our fish were caught on green, but some natural colors worked as well. I think our hottest lure was a Short Shallow Bay Rat in "Can't afford it". There was also a Stinger that I picked up that was a very similar color pattern to the "Can't afford it" stick that did well. Since you have Otter boats, you can easily run 3 lines off each side and not worry about the riggers yet. Later in the season, if you are fishing more than 20' of water or so, the riggers will come in handy for getting closer to bottom. Right now, as others have said, you're going to be fishing right up on shore in 10-15' of water or so. The riggers will only cause you grief. Good luck, be safe and HAVE FUN!
  3. Cannon makes a great rod holder that comes up by just grabbing the rod. I'm sure there are others. http://store.cannondownriggers.com/products/325071/Dual_Axis
  4. Looks like you guys had a great trip, Del Gue, despite getting blown off. Congrats!
  5. Hi Keith - Check out Ranger nets. I don't know if they make a hoop for your S3 handle, but you can get handles up to 12' long with their optional handles. I love their octagonal extendable handles. Good luck!
  6. Another vote for Ugly Stik. I like the 8'3" Light action.
  7. https://marine.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lon=-76.54562467709182&lat=43.48514425015122#.XNLELuhKg2w Looks a little bumpy early on Saturday, then calming down.
  8. Thank you! Hopefully my son and I will be there this Saturday for his first trip to Lake O, and my first trip that far west.
  9. Where is the best place to launch in Fair Haven? Do you use the State Park boat launch? I'll be staying near Pulaski in a week or so and was thinking about making the drive to Fair Haven to explore some new water. Thanks!
  10. Nicely done! I'll be out there a week from today. Can't wait!
  11. Also wondering what size Bay Rats guys are running for browns. I'd like to pick up a few for my next trip to Lake O.
  12. Nice job, Hard Knox! Glad you and your Dad were able to get into some nice fish, regardless of the late start! Unfortunately I won't make it out there for 2 more weeks. Hoping for cool weather between now and then so the browns will be still be shallow.
