Pap, We may have an article about this adventure & world record catch in the In - Fishermen Magazine! We did get Go Pro footage of a 303 lb Arapiama from the hook up to the release with the fish clearing the water 4 times! I will make a YouTube Video and put it up here later this month.I returned to Buffalo and the 4 ft of snow in my driveway on Thursday night, ready to go back to Guyana!

Nice Larry!! :yes:  I will be looking forward to seeing the video. Now that you are back to the cold you might want to wear one of these :bandit:  At least you missed the worst of it. For Rochester it was the coldest February on record.

The Arapiama picks the ponds to raise their young because as the water is dropping the Pirhana leave and move to the river, so most ponds are void of pirhana. But stingrays can be a problem as well as black caiman.

I did have a poop my pants moment, while my back was turned to the river and I was standing on a solid rock area unhooking a Bacuda of about 25", a Black Caiman of around 10 ft long launched itself 6 ft through the air and landed right behind me grabbing the Bacuda right out of my hands! Talk about scaring the poop out of you! From that point on never turned my back to any water that was deep enough you could not see bottom.The only injuries on the trip were one clients thumb having skin burn't off from trying to thumb the reel spool on a Redtail Catfish that ran all the line off a Penn 309 reel!

Well that sucks!! But take your time don't want to loose that info, we had all our pic. of the girls when they were born on the computer and that happened, we had to have someone do the same for us. Hope everything goes well, PAP.

Larry, You would be better off going to a newer version of Windows.I believe they are no longer supporting 98. So without security updates, it is vulnerable and there are hackers out there taking advantage of it.

Stephen, I can F Disc and add the Windows 98 for free! Once I recover the pictures on flash disc I will purchase a new laptop if it gets infected again!The computer is to old to put Windows 8 on it, not enough memory or big enough hard drive and getting the new Windows would cost to much!

      Got out from 7am to 11:15am before the wind and waves came up. Went 16 for 17 lakers and salmon. Most lakers were the 7-8lb range, all the salmon were sub legal. Speed at the ball was 2.2-3.0. 70-250FOW. 10 color leadcore did the work, but dipseys at 130 and riggers at 45 and 60 both took fish as well. Bright scorpion size spoons and standard DW’s in black/silver were the tickets. Light fleas, top water was 68, below 60’ down was mid 40’s. Every fish we got was super fat, healthy and were ready

    • Canandaigua south end 9-3-19

      I was thinking about going to Lake O solo this morning but my wife said " why don't you fish out here and I can go along". Of course I said "yes" (for a whole lot of reasons). We got a late start and were on the water about 10 AM (quit at 4PM) . I used 2 downriggers cheated and a 300 copper trolling first the east side down to Pelican Point then across by Wegman's  and down the west side. Caught a total of 7 lakers despite fishing for rainbows. None was over 4 pounds. The interesting thing to me

    • Kayuta Lake Tiger Muskie Stocking

      This past week the NYSDEC stocked Kayuta Lake in Oneida County with tiger muskies for the first time in many years. Chapter 70 member, Jeff Dean Sr. has been working for a year and a half with the local lake association to resume the stocking that was haulted about a decade ago.   Kayuta Lake has produced some really nice tigers in the past and has put out a few nice ones over the past couple of years, likely some of the last tigers from the previous stockings. Kayuta Lake should be on its

    • Waneta lake Muskie hunt.

      On a quest to get a muskie this year. Thought I'd post here as a bit of an online journal.   Made it out today from about 8:30am to noon. Fished boy scout camp north to no avail. Third time out this year and not even a follow, throwing bucktails, spinnerbaits, and cranks. Maybe pick up a few glide baits of some sort? Mid to upper 60's for surface temp.   Hmm... off to ponder.   Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
