Bay Rat Lures

We are pleased to have been added to the Bay Rat Lures Pro-Staff for 2015!!


We first started using these lures in Wilson on Lake Ontario last spring and loved them!   So did the salmon and trout!   When we got back home to Lake Erie, we found out that the walleye enjoyed them too!

Made in Erie, PA, they have added lots of great colors and a few new shapes and sizes already for the new season.  Be sure to give them a look at!

This has not been a great fall on the local tributary for sure, but I had a little time to get out on the last day of fall….surprisingly, had more hookups than expected, and landed this two beauties!



A Few Christmas Ideas…..

A Few Christmas Ideas….

Still looking for a Christmas gifts for the fisherman or fisherwoman in your life?  We thought we’d take a minute to help you out!

Charter(s)  How about a Lake Erie walleye charter or a Lake Ontario salmon charter?  We can set it up anyway you want, either for a specific trip length or a dollar value towards a trip.   We’ll send you   a nice gift certificate and a Times Two Hat to put with it under your tree!

Rod or Reel  We absolutely love the new Coldwater Series Rods   and Reels from Okuma!  Very nice set up for the deep water fisherperson in your life!   You can find them at, or many of the tackle dealers in your area!

Fishing Line   We made the change over to GAMMA line about            6 years ago now, and we have been VERY PLEASED with their   lines.   Its all we run on “Times Two” whether braid, mono or fluorocarbon leaders.  You can get your order set with Heidi at

Bay Rat Lures?   We started running their new lures this past      spring on Lake Ontario, and the salmon and trout went crazy for them!   For Lake Ontario, we loved the coho crusher and the orange flash.   On Lake Erie, the black mamba and the machine  were the best!

Creative Imprint Systems  If you are in need of someone to do silk screening or embroidery, or to create than new logo for your  charter service or fishing team, then Jeremy at CIS is your guy!      No job is too big or too small.    They helped us get our new logo set last summer, and do all of the Times Two shirts, sweatshirts  and hats you’ve seen us wearing.    Jeremy (or us) can assist you if your looking to get any custom Times Two apparel, or if you need help designing a logo for your own purposes.   Their site is

*** Other quick hits for you…… How about a lifetime fishing license from NYS.      A Gift Certificate to go stream fishing with our pal, Marty at   A quality rainsuit.   Took me years of working thru other suits until we got into the Guidewear Series from Gander Mountain.  Cabela’s offers it to.

For stocking stuffers….. blacks downrigger releases; quality snap swivels (we like the dreamweaver products); sunflower seeds; sunscreen; blackbird phantom floats (for perch fishing or streams); hook removers; slide diver rings; batteries for the camera; Guiness and Doritos!
