  1. Amherst Island

    Telemetry studies done by Lapan proved St. Lawrence muskys migrated to the Amherst Island area right after spawning on the St. Lawrence (a trip of 60+ miles). I'd check out that area.

    @NateOz,

    Sorry, no plans to sell. I've still got all my stuff (lures, rods, reels, downriggers), the only thing I sold when I stopped fishing was the Grady White.

    I retire in two years. I'll...

    The old days

    Seeing my name mentioned in a post is quite flattering!

    Raiders

    Been out of the game for 13 years, sad to hear the Raiders aren't what they used to be. I've got dozens of the originals in my basement. All kinds of colors. Some used some new. I guess I'm...

    The IGFA's intent behind the no assist rule is because many saltwater battles with large fish take hours on light tackle before the wire-man is able to grab the leader. It's a battle of strength...

    RE: Trolling too Straight?

    We used to have a saying here in Buffalo Harbor... if you think you're trolling too fast, go a little faster.

    Seriously, try bumping the speed up. You'd be surprised how fast these fish will hit...

    RE: Downrigger Fishing Question

    Had both downriggers and outriggers on my boat back in the day. Tried all the fancy releases. Save your money and buy a bag of #33 rubber bands. They're fool proof. Put a 6" leader off the tail...

    RE: Pic of dead 46" - Rubber Kills Another!

    BS such as what's on this whole thread is the exact reason back in 1999, after 25 years of musky fishing, I walked away.

    RE: Cause of wounds during spawn

    We've watched these fish spawn on the Niagara River many times in years past. The Great Lakes Muskellunge is a 'broadcast spawner." The females don't make a nest as the bass do, they simply dump...

    RE: O'Brien report simplified...

    In an earlier post on the O'Brien fish, I made the comment that Dr. Casselman estimated the fish to be twenty-nine years old. I stand corrected, it was thirty-two years old.

    Wow, that fish was...

    RE: O'Brien Summary Report

    @Doug, But I talked to the Musky's Canada guys about this fish. I saw pictures that they took of this fish hanging on a hook (scale).

    Okay, someone needs to update me. Larry? We go way back, fill me in. I’m out of the game, but go back to the 1970s. I saw the mount of the O’Brien musky at the Canadian Sportsmen Show in Toronto....

    RE: Creek Chub Pikie Minnow

    When I used to fish, we used them all the time. In later years we started using the 3000s and 5500s off the riggers. It worked out well because they didn't dive very deep so you could put the balls...

    RE: anyone use dipsy's

    If you going to use Dipsey's with any type of diving bait like a Depth Raider, Believer, etc., they won't work. The pull from the lure against the Dipsey causes the Dipsey to flip over.
