2013 Oak Orchard

This past weekend Jack invited me to join him and his friend Nick to go fishing with them UP State NY.  We stood at this lodge it was perfect Very accommodating and affordable

So I drove 400 miles (7 hours) up to Albion NY and started a trip I would never forget.

Cool Corpse 
On Sat morning I set out to fish with Jack and Nick and caught one Rainbow trout that was my my personal best for about 24 hours. This is also my first 2013 trout.

Sat Jack landed 6 really nice browns and Nick caught a  rainbow and lost one. I lost 2 fish but it was a good time and the weather wasn't that bad

 Sunday morning we packed up and checked out of the lodge. We went directly to the river in horrible 35-40MPH winds and snowing with a mindset to catch some fish in this freeezing weather and Jack added another Brown to his 7 of the trip.
Nick also caught a brown and I landed a New personal best Rainbow and a really decent brown (with a suntan)

This trip was AWESOME. It was well worth it. Big Thanks to Jack and Nick

Cod Fishing Captree

I know that this is not exactly Reservoir Fishing but its a 2013 Manny Fresh Fishing report.
So my cousin and I finally just picked up and went out for a Cod fishing trip today. Good news first is I finally went fishing! ;D Bad news is we didnt land any Cod fish.  >:(

Over all it was a pretty decent day on the water. We started off meeting at Captree dock at 530AM today and we got on the boat with many other SW anglers. My and my cousins first time out for Cod fishing so we didn't exactly match all the seasoned SW anglers attire but we were dressed warm enough for the weather today.  We set sail at 610am and continued out towards the ocean for the next 3 1/2 hours and the waves where really bad (almost got Seasick but I took Dramamine at 5am) boat was a rocking back and forth ans stuff was falling everywhere. Once the sun rose the water finally calmed down and my nausea went away.

30 miles off shore and 3 and a half hours later we dropped anchor and stared fishing. I was so happy to get a line wet again even if it was a SW line. But who cares in Jan "Fishing is fishing", Or at least thats what I was told. We (me and my cousin) caught Ling fish (?) and Dog fish all day long and only 4 anglers on the boat landed Cod fish. My cousin did at one point have a Cod on the line but it got off as he was calling for the Gaff.

I had a great ride home (with no waves) and the trip was well worth it. Even though we had no Cod to bring home. Maybe next time

My 8th Dogfish!

Southern Fishing Derby 2012

I joined the 2012 fishing derby and I was lucky enough to catch the biggest perch in April 2012. It was a nice big white perch ( tasted great ) I weighed it in at Jack Stewarts house right after I caught it in Croton falls 2.2lbs 14 inches long. It was my first fish ever caught in CF and my first white perch landed in almost 14 years. I was pleased to findout today that  i made third place in the contest overall for the year 2012 in size. I am going to probably put this in a frame! I also got a $25 check & a cool  Camo hat as a prize.
