So I was up fishing at Lake George tonight from shore by the dock area and this large fishing kept sticking his head out of the water and swimming on top...almost like a dolphin does...to me it looked like a salmon but I know that they wouldn't be around here...another guy docking at the moment seen it and was confused as by what it is too...any one know?

muskies have been known to stick their heads out of the water and swim around. No one knows for sure why they do this??? Don't think theres muskies in George though??? Weird! Could be a pike I guess.

We lived on George for 3 seasons and it used to be directly connected to Nest which feeds from MUSKY overflow from fisheries rearing pond on flood conditions.

So just like Green having them and 3 48 inch and larger from Nest last season its probaly a MUSKIE.

In November go out on bar below bible camp crosses with large one foot dead three days on the dashboard in a bag suckers on a green ELMER HINCKLY Jig with single blade same color and tou will have fun with 13 to 15 pound NORTHERN PIKE.

A freind of mine lived two doors down from where we lived and ice fished ,when asked how the walleye bite was he would say not so good.

In the spring when fishing was over he would show us several pictures of true catch and release walleyes.

Its truly sad that when county road was rebuilt they basically destroyed the height of water passage from Nest.

Those fish for George are now the last of a dynasty.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.

      Sorry for the late reply, but no, the first 5 to 6" was soft but the rest was solid. I've been busy in the woods making maple syrup that I haven't got time to get out. I hope to get out tomoorrow.

      Thank you very much! I appreciate the information. I think I will run straight fluoro then.

      I have been using the Alberto knot and really like it, it's easy to tie and one of the strongest knots when going from braid to Fluoro.  I mostly have been using that knot on a spinning rod, for baitcasters I usually just like to run straight braid or straight Fluoro.

      Hey guys,   New to the forum here and I have a quick question;   I have been using seaguar knots to attach my fluoro leader to my braid, and for some reason, it is always knicking my guides, causing me not being able to cast as far. I am relatively new to baitcasters, so i was wondering if anybody had any suggestions? I was using 30 pound braid with a 12 pound seaguar flouro leader. Even tho the knot is so small between the leader and main line, it seems to knick the last few guides, and hinders my lures from dropping as quickly... any ideas? thanks in advance.
