  4. Took Nitro ZV-21 to Lake Ontario for three days and 4” of rain. Ran it in 15-25 mph winds and monster waves. We were the only boat at a huge launch today. We caught ...more 210 smallmouth bass and lots of Goby. Couldn’t get to areas holding the big ones too rough. Need to catch some like this in my kayak tournaments.

  8. Caught 32 smallmouth bass at Lake Ontario Saturday. Trying to get some 5 or 6 pounders but no luck. Perfect weather with light winds. Boat launch in Oswego, NY was ...more a zoo! Busiest launch I have ever been to.

  9. Caught my first Goby! Went to Lake Ontario Saturday. When you have your lure on the bottom they constantly hit.

      Feel like the pic doesn’t do this fish any justice. Of course my scale was dead but this fish had some weight to it. Thinking it’s my PB. Thanks for the thumbs up ...more Chris but it looks tiny compared to your musky. That was an awesome fish by the way.
