    The herring have turned VERY skittish on the east bank of the river and the striper bite has slowed GREATLY. Anyone else have similar experiences the past few days?

    I'm going to make a bait well from an old cooler on the swim platform. I see a lot of talk about aerators. Can't I just run a pump full time with a water overflow. I think the constant water change will be enough, no?

    Went down today to the Albany launch for a shakedown cruise on the boat. The rowing club has erected a whole new set of chain link fencing which blocks off about 15 vehicle/trailer parking spots, if not more. Basically they have taken over nearly the entire northern end of the parking lot. It...

    I've been tieing up some of my own bucktails this winter as a way to pass the time. It's been interesting, and have learned a lot. I'm running out of of long enough deer tail hair though. Does anyone know if horse hair can be used as a substitute? Far simpler for me to get in longer lengths...

    I've got a compilation of jigs and fixtures that I use to make the hobby of plug making eaiser and the results repeatable.... some of these have been featured before.. some I've kept tucked away... most, not all were created by me.. most were spawned from necessity or modified from some one...

    We have had trout in this tank for nearly 6 months now, they are as healthy as ever. This will save you a lot of money and we can keep several hundred gizzard shad alive in here during the spring! It helps to put charcoal in the filter area along with your filter material for ammonia levels...

  9. Plugs and Plug Building
    I am looking into pouring and tying my own bucktails for a winter project. I figured it is a good place to start until I get the plug shop up and going. I have done a search a couple times and have found out that all white, white/red and chartreuse are the more popular colors. The question I...

    I'm putting together a spreadsheet of various woods, their densities, plug making pros and cons, and plug type best suited to the wood. I'd like feedback from as many people as possible. I'll gather the info, plug it into the spreadsheet, and re-post. My thoughts are that a density below 30 make...

    This is my first, and probably my last, post. I only want to thank a man I've never met, but learned so much from. For starters, I started fishing in the Mighty Mac for stripers at the age of 14. Back then, it was casting large spoons just below the Rocks Village Bridge every minute I wasn't in...
  12. Massachusetts
    First bluefish of the season took my fly for quite a ride this morning while I was out fishing the tidal wash around Green Island. Ripped me straight to the backing before biting off one of my favorite flies. I'd imagine they'll be making their way into the inner harbor within a week. Anyone...
  13. Reels and Reel Maintenance
    I've been taking my own stock level winds from my 6500's and my Hubilie's, and have gently ground down the inner surface where the white plastic piece holds the end of the worm carriage. I did this carefully to not take too much off, with a fine stone, on a variable speed drill. I than fitted...

    I had all these things collecting dust so if you decide to build one figure the cost to be about 100.00 /150.00 for all the materials including motors and all.I started just by building a box with 1/2 sanded plywood.

    Ok so you have a few smaller eels that have succumbed from one thing or the other.... the last few years, do to all the eels shortage talk, I've made a serious effort to use more plugs and use less eels, and when I do use eels to recycle them as much as practical.. First, you need an eel, a...
