Mac Capen, age 14, is an avid outdoorsman who has been float fishing the Burt Dam for approximately two years. Mac's personal best was a 32 inch steelhead that was caught using a center pin with an olive maribou jig. Mac actively fishes the Burt Dam and Lake Ontario tributaries year-round making the most of each season. Mac prefers to cure his own eggs with brown sugar and salt and ties is own marabou jigs.
Mac's Advice: What I like best about the center pin is the fight. It took me a little while to learn it, but once you do, it is relatively easy. It is important to study your local tributaries to better understand what works. Spend as much time in the water learning where the holes are and when the fish are coming from Lake Ontario into the creek.
