Adk trip?

5 posts in this topic

Anyone up for a trip up north to fish a semi-remote pond or lake? Been talking with DEC Watertown and got some good info. Many have carry trails so my 14' canoe is a good way to go. She's light, 69#, flat bottomed, wide, foam filled and squared transom(plan on buying a cart). Got a good trolling motor and a sonar(does a decent job). She's stable enough for two standing and fishing and paddles pretty easily. I found a couple truly remote ones too, but you aren't getting a canoe in there without a lot of work! How about an UNFISHED lake 5 miles in on a "bushwack trail? DEC says they fished it in '06 and it's loaded with good to big brook trout. Gonna have to scope that one out first. I'd hate to try that walk with just a head lamp and spook a bear, rattler or fall on my head! So, who's up for a little ride?

Sounds like a good trip Ray...I spend a lot of time in the 'Daks and have always wanted to get into a remote Trout spot that way. I have done a lot of hiking up that way and it can be real tough on the weak. If you can get me some more info...I can see what I can come up with as well. Do you have access to a kayak? I have a nice one that needs such a trip. The possibilities are endless up in the ADK's.

Oh, BTW, I wouldn't worry too much about the Black Bears up there...they are pretty passive.

You still pack heat anyway Ray...what I would be worried about is you shooting me in the foot laugh

Let's look into it...I would request that DC's company would be a must!!!!

No Kayak but a sweet canoe. Might be able to borrow one though. I'll be in touch and we'll work on this. Sounds good to me. Bears don't worry me any. Hunters on the other hand.... Come on, I never shot anyone who didn't deserve it! lol No body, no crime. lol

I have never spent any time in the Daks. Was there once when I was 13 for an overnighter and thats it. Next week is family vacation in canada which may include a jaunt through the area...

Would love to explore, hike, and fish, ect. Not sure if its in the cards for this year but maybe. "Make it happen, you must" said Yoda. cool

    • Here is hoping for a dry October.
    • I didn't get the elm creek park hunt this year   I guess I will sit right outside the park and hope they chase them out again.
    • I am not one to post on here much but I am always "Lurking in the shadows". Anyway I have a question about a Grand Prix I bought a few years ago. When I first acquired the car it would up shift into the next gear as soon as you stepped on it fairly hard making for a rather uneventful and slow accelerating process. I figured this was normal as it was the only thing I found unusual. Then after awhile it begin to shake subtly when accelerating in first and second gear after second gear it would accelerate flawlessly. in the last few months it has begun to develop a fairly bad jerk when stopping and then going again. This ONLY happens after driving long distances. It never happens if I drive under 100 miles .Also it only happens about 1/3 of the time after driving these long distances. It will still accelerate slowly until about 3 mph and then it will jerk fairly hard when it does happen. Any Ideas what would cause this? The long distance thing is what confuses me.
    • What a load of dung question.  In your eyes no one could respond with a "rational" explanation. Johnson knew what it was going to take to get into the debates when he decided to run.  He failed up to this point so suck it up. Maybe you and Dave can get together and drown your tears together over a couple cold ones.
    • Do you have any rational explanation why a candidate who is on the ballot in all 50 states, and has a petition to be included in the debates with over 1 million signatures on it, should not be in the debates? https://www.johnsonweld.com/debate?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=tweet&utm_term=GJ-09-23&utm_campaign=debate
    • This was Sunday morning after we set decoys. Maybe the duck dock is to comfortable......
    • Sweety, son and I are both-In. Will try and hold out for a buck but no Deer in the freezer so if it's Brown its Down!
    • I may have missed it when I dozed off in the middle of the "debate", but I don't believe there was any mention of Aleppo in the whole affair...    
    • Del drops the mic.   Nice dodge.   How would Del know what Trump and Clinton are thinking or are afraid of (if they are afraid of anything)?
