  1. Sent text. Interested in fly tying lot.
  2. Just trying to warn others to keep a wide berth if they don’t want to have their fishing interrupted. I was out last year during one of the bass tournaments (Major League Fishing maybe?). Didn’t have any problems.
  3. Yep, that's from my phone. iPhone 7, so nothing fancy.
  4. I updated the title. Reel Rage should probably be careful about who they use as ProStaff if they're worried about their image.
  5. We're definitely NOT a Crestliner. Looks like he was an idiot with 2 separate boats yesterday, then. We turned to avoid collision with over 300 feet of line out back. Then they turned and cut back the other way in front of us. After they passed us, they cut right back behind us. Thankfully, we'd reeled all of our line in so that we didn't get torn off. Dick move to be sure.
  6. If you see this boat on Cayuga try to avoid it. We tried today. We turned to avoid being a problem and he turned sharply in front of us while we’re dragging 300 feet of copper. It just goes to show that you cannot buy class. #Edited title after seeing more info from someone in here. A shame if it's Black Dog, they're a charter I had contemplated using.
  7. I don’t gut immediately. I clip the v under the mouth where the gills come together. Then they go on ice.
  8. We bleed ours, too. Learned the trick from Striper fishing. While most of the filets are orange, some come out very pale, almost white. Even when we didn’t bleed them out, though, I don’t understand the disdain for lakers.
  9. It’s a Traeger. Last time we used the brine from the pic. Yes, I also used it for smoked eel. It’s adapted from “The Quick and Easy Art of Smoking Food: Updated for the 90s” by Chris Dubbs & Dave Heberle. The only downside to that book is you really should read it cover to cover and then you have piece things together to make everything right.
  10. Love smoked lake trout. It’s more mild than salmon and lacks the sweetness but is very good. I prefer hickory for smoking. I also prepare it like other salmon recipes. Grilled after a vodka, brown sugar, salt, pepper marinade. Foil pack with butter, garlic salt, and pepper.
  11. Thank you so much for the feedback. I've still got some time to decide if she comes along or not.
  12. What does everyone think about the algae blooms on Cayuga? I've got a vacation scheduled and wanted to bring my dog out in the boat, but we usually use water to cool things off for her. I'm concerned about her safety with the reported algal blooms. Thoughts? I also read that you shouldn't fish or eat fish caught in/near the blooms. What do they consider "near"?
