  1. The carts come on and in the packaging when I bought them but I'm sure they are available online.
  2. That's great. Thanks for sharing. I have used heavy bouncers on St. Lawrence River for eyes. Maybe I will try it on Erie sometime. Dipsies are less weight and resistance when fighting a fish and have the dive depth charts. I think the water temp was funny on Friday the more I hear.
  3. Thanks for the information Cisco. I understand now. Interesting you troll with bouncers in deep water... how heavy are the ones you use? I drift with them, rod in hand, 1.5 to 3 oz. When the wind dies I switch to trolling. Nice job gbill512. Glad you found them. I hope the lake normalizes for some good fishing this month.
  4. Hi Cisco and J. Sparrow.... curious what time you fished on Friday? We did the same thing bouncing up high with the fish in that 40 to 55 foot range. I could only entice one to hit between 10:30 and noon so we went to trolling. Thanks.
  5. Tough day for me and a buddy today... Started fishing rod in hand with bouncers and harnesses from 10:30 until about noon. Picked up one 22 incher. Switched over to trolling with 2 dipsy rods for rest of day (5:30 pm). Picked up 3 more eyes. 16", 19" and a 23" all on harnesses. Bite died for us around 1 pm. Saw some nets moving but not a lot. Guessing the trolling bite was better earlier. Should have started out trolling. Most boats gone by 2 pm or so? Great day to be out in spite of the light box for us. Guy at the ramp said many boats did well.
  6. Heading out tomorrow... after all the wind changes we have had my expectations are not very high. You never know.
  7. Nice jobs J. Sparrow and backinthegame! Hope the next couple days don't stir it up too much. Hoping for a Friday outing.
  8. Nice report. Sounds like a great day on the lake.
  9. Nicely done Greg. Fyi...The limit for Erie is 6 per fisherman. General regulation for NY waters is 5.
  10. Way to go Cisco. Nice work. Thanks for the report.
  11. Bring repellent and a couple fly swatters to pass the time between walleye netting.
  12. Awesome job. 32 incher is special. Congratulations.
  13. What limited experience I have with spoons is to run them faster than harnesses, in the 2.0 to 2.5 mph range. I have taken some decent eyes with them. Tried them under high sun mid day last time out of the Catt and no takers. Harness bite was better but later.
  14. That's great. Nice solid walleye. Gotta love it. Can't wait until I can get back out there.
  15. Congratulations Rutnut. Sounds like a great day. What size range were they?
  16. Fished out of the Catt today from 12 pm until 8. Had a slow start in bright part of afternoon but did well from 6 to 8 pm. Ended with our 2 man limit... got 1 early bottom bouncing while we had enough of a breeze. Switched to trolling harnesses on dypsy's in 70 to 78 fow. Watermelon and a purple / red did best. Nothing real big but some nice healthy fish. Great sunset.
  17. Thanks for sharing PD. Quality fish. I'm going to give it a try tomorrow. Still deciding where to launch.
  18. Way to go. Congratulations. Hope they continue now for the rest of the season.
  19. Best screen for me is when the long "ribbons" are thick with multiple colors (bigger fish) and there are multiple marks crisscrossing which shows they are active and willing to chase. Nothing like that last Monday.
  20. Good point MyTurn on finding fish away from the bait. On Monday out by the line there was too much bait I think. They probably fed all night with that moon and were too full? When we moved to a quieter screen is when we finally caught a few.
  21. Those annoying ankle biting flies were nasty yesterday off Sturgeon... bring your fly swatters!
