    I wonder how the bass population dynamics would change if the creel was even lower (like zero). That would still allow for the conservation minded tournaments that catch and release. If the bass numbers go up the Goby numbers go down. Maybe wouldn’t need seasonal regs at all. 

    I know, I know, just too crazy of an idea. Probably should just stick my head back in the sand and grumble about how things used to be better.

    Zero for tournaments is a good idea. Carting fish from Gallo to the river every tourney for stage time is so stupid. If they can fish with road cones and live scopes, I think they can figure out a fish-less weigh-in system that still entertains.

    Here's what the layer can look like at night on a graph.  This was south of sunken island (thank you Captain Bliss for teaching me about this area!), in 2016, and was mostly Cisco from the 2014 year class.

    Ok, I’m tracking, know what I’m looking out now, thanks. 

  3. 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. 




  4. 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. 

  5. 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.
