  1. Ok, I’m tracking, know what I’m looking out now, thanks.
  2. They were thick a few days before
  3. Ok, thanks, that’s a serious hot spot
  4. I want to believe they are sporty but there were so many I’m starting think they were forage fish like Cisco. Same size as smallies. Inquiring minds want to know!
  5. Smallmouths didn’t cross mind, hmmmm.
  6. Was cruising around for fun other night and stopped at 80’ north of Galoo Island and just putted along and was marking tons of fish on that contour holding close to bottom. Screen was loaded the whole time. Can anyone guess from the picture what these could have been? Looks like bottom was temp was ~65.
  7. Thanks for herding those sheep so the rest of us won’t have to.
  8. I got same rigger, that makes sense to me. Don’t know why I got it into my head 12 was max. Prolly just trying to avoid reeling up heavier stuff. Time to get tougher and stop pussin around I guess lol. Thanks.
  9. Blowback is kicking my butt. Salmon fishing is a small part of my life so I still use hand cranks so I am limiting myself to 12lb wts so I want to go to 150# PP to try and solve this. My question is, can I just tie into my existing cable just in case fleas get nuts and want to revert back to cable for a short time? Also, terminal gear for PP is just a heavy duty swivel, right? Thanks for any insights.
  10. Fished out there yesterday. 130-150’ near calf island we got browns, lakers, steel, and shaker kings. Big kings are there just not for me. Tried some skinny water for walleyes but the fleas were terrible in shallow and I was not marking. Got the steel/brown up high on lead and lakers/shakers ~100’ on riggers.
  11. I’ve caught them in Cape Vincent trolling eyes in August. I presume these are just lost fish. However, I remember a guy saying that it was a repeatable occurrence every fall that a pod of fish would show up in the cape area every fall near the Canadian ferry port for a short timeframe, but that is very likely to be a huge crock of fairy tales.

    Sandy

    That’s really cool you got an eye in Sandy.
  13. Memories of long lining out front of sandy in Hamlin in the 20’ range back in the 90’s and catching sheep and bass on every troll. The sheep disappear too?
  14. Wish I could catch fish when’s it’s glass.
  15. Killing it, nice job.
  16. I don’t want it to be the year of the pike, but it might be the year of the pike. Thanks for report
  17. 55 degrees outside pt penn and a very eclectic bite. Not hot and heavy, but lots of variety.
  18. That hard NE blow for 4-5 days mixed stuff up big time.
