  1. Years ago my barber used to make a trip down there once a year for tarpon, some big fish! LOL wanna go? no! fight one fish for an hour or more? too much like work!
  2. Try ebay lots of brands, strengths, and sizes.
  3. A guy I worked with years ago had family in Maine, he would go down to the boats and buy them for like 3 bucks each and bring a couple of big coolers full of them here, they went fast!
  4. Sir, the only place I have seen one was at Devils lake in Ontario 1957, a couple of youtube videos I have seen show people using them with a lot of success. I took uncle josh pork grubs and put round rubber legs on them, my top trailer for small hair jigs. These have also worked for me. https://arkielures.com/collections/plastic-lures/products/salty-crawlin-fry
  5. https://www.thoughtco.com/fascinating-facts-about-pillbugs-4165294 These aren't bugs and related. Ever try hellgrammites?

  7. https://usa.fishermap.org/depth-map/lake-ontario/ Doesn't do you much good north of Dundas Street

  9. Bet that would be killer for smallies tied on a 1/8th or 3/16th ball head jig? Nice work Brian!
  10. My biggest smallie was 22 inches, pretty confident it was over 6lbs, but not too much.
  11. 1.) 3 1/2 tube green pumpkin for a crayfish look, white and silver for a bait fish look. 2.) 4 inch Zoom lizard, junebug or watermelon blue. 3.) old school Storm wee wart, chrome - black back - red chin. 4.) hair jig, black or brown, with a pork or rubber trailer. 5.) underspin, like the old school road runners or newer options. Can't fault what has worked for you.
  12. Forbidden Planet (1957?) the first sci fi flick I recall seeing with an actual budget? Better special effects? Star Wars 4-5-6? A Teamster since the early 70's, not a fan of mob movies or mobsters at work.
  13. https://www.cleveland19.com/2022/02/14/hudson-mayor-resigns-after-saying-ice-fishing-could-lead-prostitution/
  14. https://www.cleveland19.com/page/business/love-shack-margarita-hudson-restaurants-drink-menu-pokes-fun-after-mayor-suggests-ice-fishing-leads-prostitution/ Actually fished that small lake when I was a kid. Dude has generated some laughter!
  15. It's howling here too, started late last night, so it may last awhile?
  16. https://www.minnkotamotors.com/support/faqs/can-i-use-lithium-ion-batteries-my-minn-kota-trolling-motor I don't see a date on that, so changes unknown?
  17. My " go to " lure had a habit of changing when I needed it most. Down sizing worked at times, a simple color change or action and depth change. 1/8th to 1/4 ounce hair jig can be magic at times.
