Now they show up!!! If anyone wants s to see some Old Squaw the ST Lawrence is filled with them!!!! They are hanging out in the channel gorging them selves. Some are having a hard time getting off of the water. They have to be feeding on Zebra mussels, that’s the only thing I can think of at the depth their in. They sure but on a great show when they pass just 20 yards off your bow. Now they show up, where were they last fall? :huh:

Hey Matt you should of see the wave of Squaws that were moving on the river from late afternoon till just before dark. There had to be thousands one wave after another :huh:

Hey Matt if that decoy isn't up to your standard. I know a guy in Northern NY who thinks that decoy is just fine and would be glad to take a dozen or so off your hands :lol:

Hows the fishing been so far ? All I've been fishing for so far is Bullheads. I can't wait to start jigging and dragging plastic, next weekend my man!!! Good talking with yeah and good luck with LOC derby Later dude :thumbsup:

Was out by Niagara Falls this weekend and saw a bunch of divers in the river near Grand Island on Saturday. Unfortunately I was driving across the bridge in the rain so I couldn't get a good look to see exactly what they were. Some ice was still floating around there too.

The ones we shot on Long Island were good. They had a mild clam taste because that's what they like to eat down there. Here's one I mounted up last year. The plywood base was supposed to be temporary, but I've yet to get the driftwood attached to a nice base.
