  1. I think ensuring that you are tapping the bottom on the drift is imperative. I'd rather be having to re-tie often and be in the game then never be in the game at all by drifitng halfway down the water column. You can learn a lot by wathcing the guys who are consistenly hooking up. I too prefer a lighter line as WWJD stated - like 10lb P-line or Maxima. But there are guys on here that are way more legit than myself, that's just what works for me.
  2. Rob covered it pretty darn well. I am in a club up off Partridgeville Rd. Like Rob said, few deer and that time of year is tough if the foliage is still hanging on, which it will be with the Beech... I have never bow hunted up there, but finding the food at that time has led me to a few ML kills in that early season. I would imagine you would have most of the woods to yourself (hunter-wise) as ML season starts the 15th I believe this year. We uually fish for a bit, hunt for a bit etc., on Otter and the Independence, especially on the warm days. Good luck!
  3. As an Oswego alum, you have to try Oswego Sub Shop - Specifically the Texas Hot Cheeseburger sub
  4. Bow only zones... Having hunted the finger lake region as a yongster, to the ADK's for almost 20 years and now more recently a bow only zone, i have found that there are many 4.5 harvested that no one ever hears about. Very good bucks too that would easily mnake the books... I have unfortunately lost the bow access, but I know those that still hunt the area are extremely secretive/selective about what they harvest and see year to year. My time in stand and trail cameras confirmed they are out there in all areas of the state, but the bow only zones allow for more 4.5+ deer for obvious reasons... And I also found that midday movement for mature bucks during the rut is a very real thing as they move from bedding area to bedding area in their search for the next one..
  5. My buddy has a spot up there, I heard its quite the place, enjoy!
  6. Sorry, I meant what team affiliation?
  7. Oh nice, my girls are 12u and 14u. Which program if you dont mind me asking?
  8. What age group is your daughter in?
  9. This Saturday, daugther's team will be in LI for the state-semi's against Vestal (section IV). The other semi is Mepham (Section VIII) VS Webster Shroeder (Section V)
  10. I know i'm on the opposite end but posted a while back so I figured I'd give the update to keep us all motivated. 6 months working out tomorrow! I am trying to gain and started at 145-150. Up to 165 eating clean. Been stuck there for a while, its been hard to go from one meal a day for the last decade to 4-6. Contemplating trying a gainer, but dont know enough about them. KEEP GOING!!!!
  11. Daughter's team got past Section X Massena last night in Sub-Regionals. Scored her first Varsity runs which was exciting. Playing Section III winner New Hartford in state quarters tomorrow at Carrier Park. Any of my softball guys in CNY have info on New Hartford lol
  12. She is enjoying it and the girls have been extremely welcoming. Now to get that W!
  13. My oldest was called up for Sectionals and Troy Softball (Secton 2) is in the final this evening against Burnt Hills in Malta. If it is anthing like their first meeting (12 Innings), it will be an excellent game. Although she is only pinch running for the catcher, it has been a good experience for her and I hope she can contribute today. If anything, it will motivate her as she has never rode the pine before.
  14. I was doing full body workouts when i first started Mid-December, but as I got stronger and added more exercises to the fold, it was starting to take too long and I wasnt allowing for proper recovery time. So now i do splits Legs/Shoulders, Back/Biceps, and Chest/Triceps. I mix in 3-4 days of core which is usually planks, russian twists, and flutters. In a perfect world I work 6 days a week allowing for 2 days of each split. I do minimum of 3 sets and sometimes 4-5 of compounds. I am working out at home with body weight, pull-up bar, and various dumbbells. it was very humbling to start but now over 4 months in, its like i need it everyday. I think I shared in Chef's eat healthy thread and i have gained almost 20 clean pounds since then. Eating is the hard part and still is. Mind over matter they say.
  15. Stopped fly fishing when my oldest came. Three in all now and between two jobs, kids and thier interests, you have to pick and choose. I have however picked up golf after a twenty year hiatus now that my kids are a bit older and have the bug. Getting the kids involved as well has been enjoyable.
  16. Lots of Tiger haters here, everyone makes mistakes, some bigger than others. His kids genuinely seem to love their father and really that is all he should concern himself with. I'm not even a Tiger fan, but i can respect someone who has been to the highest peak and the lowest valley and is still out there grinding. Just curious, I thought nothing was found as far as drugs, alcohol regarding the crash? I know the investigation said he didn't try to correct, but I dont remember proof of substances?
  17. Cam fell apart, still dont know why he didnt or couldnt take a drop when he was next to the grate and sprinkler system early in the round. Then Scottie chips in and that was that imo. Scottie is as cool as a cucumber, his driver swing is like none i've ever seen!
  18. I must say I was impressed with Tiger's play. Moreso because of having not competed in so long and then doing it on the biggest stage. Good for him, now he has to button up that short game.
  19. I know there are a few other golfers on here... who do you all have? I like Cam Smith this week. My American choice is none other than Brooksy!
  20. Hopefully you have someone to do your lawn, that hill is gonna suuuuccckkkk haha. Good luck with the birds!
  21. Yeah, I like them because they can win without the 3 ball. Very hard for teams that shoot a lot of 3's to string together 6 straight games of shooting lights out. That is why I believe the Duke's of the world who don't win as often with all the talent they have. Too heavy on the 3.
  22. Have Gonzaga, UCLA, Tenn, and Auburn in final four. Gonzaga over Auburn. I dont think much if any of these selections will play out well, but i didnt follow much this year because Syracuse was god awful...
  23. He asked a pointed question and they were dismissive at best initially. I would not have reacted well either. I chuckled when he told the one kid to quit his millenial crap haha. I think the kids were harmless, but it's clear the landowner is fed up with tresspassers. I would think his best course of action would have been to contact local LE/DEC rather than get into it like he did. But, I too have confronted tresspassers on private land and understand him being protective of it in the moment.
  24. Yeah, I definitely have been trying to cook ahead if you will so that the meals are ready to roll. Im not a fast food guy thankfully. Maybe once or twice a year.
