Images

Keep in mind that I am always looking for images for our newsletter; fish, sunsets, sunrises, other anglers fishing, equipment, anything fishing related. I can use them all.  Large, unedited images are best. Thanks.

Last spring I mentioned using a boga or fish grip style tool as a method for handling fish during extremely deep eats.  I know not many guys are using big rubber or dawgs on a regular basis here on…Read More

Season so far

Been out 3x with action each trip.  Fished opening am with Cullen mostly jigging with brief casting and trolling stints mixed in.  First drift I jigged up a nice clean thick 44ish fish within 3 minutes of starting the day.  About 9am I brought a low 40 fish right to the bag only to have her twist her way loose at the last second.  We took a couple hr excursion down to navy/buckhorn area to do some shortlining and casting with no results.  Then came back up top and hooked a beautiful leopard…See More

86 ",165lbs aw wait that was my hammerhead. never over 50", few 50's, not that many 49"s tons of 45"to 48"s after between 1000 and 1100 muskies caught i'm long over due. hard to get over 48 in the river! had my chance in the early90's  . just released a 25 pounder drifted in shallow, depth finder went nuts (14 beeps,unheard of). fish never moved from mid july till nov 4th made countless passes over him , he was always there. this young dude i was taking with me  finally got his own boat and invited this idiot, know-it-all bass fisherman, first musky, figures he gets the fish to hit. get a call at 2 in the morning,  40lbs on his bathroom scale, brought the fish to the shop, called hank, he called all the old guys. 38lbs 14oz, biggest  legit  on hank scale.fish was later confiscated by the DEC, the idiot didn't have his licence. figures, just my luck, "loser"!
