    I saw a replayed telecast of the St. Lawrence tourney and this guy's awesome performance. Taku Ito also seems like a cool dude too.

    I've caught two in my life and I bass fish, lol. They fight like hell. I don't really target them though. There are some great smallmouth lakes in NY too.

    Heading out tomorrow morning in my kayak to do some striper fishing in Narragansett Bay with my father-in-law. Should be a learning experience.

    Troll a paddle tail and a diving plug.... and keep a spinner ready with your lure of choice.

    https://www.tackleworld.com/collections/power-handle..

    I got all my Power Handles from these guys. They used to be known as Jigging World. Fast shipping and reasonable rates. Give them a look see and you might find something you like. I put mine on myself BTW. Its not complicated at all.

    Wifey's job might take her back to Gloucester, MA in October. If she goes, I get to fish Stellwagen bank again for big Cod, Pollock and Haddock. Last trip, my SPJ gear worked wonders using 220g flat fall jigs. Depths range from 200-300ft. #Can'tWait

    I got a striped bass charter on 8/20 out of Gloucester. I'm going with my father in-law and brother in-law.

    I'm thinking about a Tuna trip one of these days. Maybe not this year but certainly on my to-do list in '23.

    There's a really large lake/reservoir just west of I-684 in NY. (Rye Lake?) It always seems inviting and the several times I've passed it on the way back to PA, it always seems to be calling my name... :)

    I'm going to the night before and staying in Shirley, MA. We are going to get up early and head to Gloucester, fish for the day and then head back to his house to spend the night.

    So I caught a fluke and lost it bringing it into the boat. First one I've ever caught so hard for me to judge size, but it looked like a keeper to me. Really wish I got it into the boat for a picture.

    I also caught a sea robin. That was a first as well. They fight pretty well but man are are ugly.

    All in all it was a great day in the water with my father in-law. We probably pedalled 7 miles.

    I didn't have a net with me. Probably should bring one next time, huh?
