  5. Peters Boat Repair at Niagara-on-the-Lake Sailing club. Best guy around.
  6. For sale are 4 brand new in box clarion 20 reels 70.00 each
  7. Been using 20lb Big game for years. It's been good for me. That 45 will hold a good amount. I did try braid a few times when I had smaller reels and needed the line capacity. You won't need that on the 45. But the no stretch is definitely a plus. I use swivel for all my connections.
  8. your 70, im 66. I think we both know what when on here 50 years ago. I ask hows the fishing today they told me go to the white rock its been pretty good. that's the information I got years ago. it was all trial and error. life is common sense. the more complicated you make life the harder to live it. I like it simple. when I meant by the warmer water fish the bottom of the lake. that's were you will find them right now. after all these colds fronts we have had this month, they are glued to the bottom. forget your fancy sonar you wont see them. you have to know something about the lake to catch them. you wont find it in a book. you have to get out and fish and learn the lake. this takes time. good fishing lately, you might get your limit at the white rock. you get it now lol
  9. I"ve had the cutco for about 20yrs. Send it back every winter for a free factory sharpening. Keeps a great edge all season. No complaints here. it's been a good one.
  10. I've been running the Church Walleye boards and the Offshore (med size, don't know model number) Both pretty comparable. Slight preference to the offshore boards. Think they tack a bit better and a bit more off to the side. I did put the pinned OR clip on the back of the church board, prefer that instead of the board sliding down.
  11. 30's for wire and lower LC. 45 for 10 color. I changed my reels over last year. Mostly for faster retrieve rate. So much better. 10 Color would fit on the 30, but you'd be down to a pretty thin spool once it's all out and on a board. That will decrease your line pickup.

  13. Can’t wait!! The Fishin’ Physician Assistant
  14. Today
  15. I cant wait to see it down. we need this place.
  16. Went out of Watkins Glen and we got on the lake around 10 a.m., hoping the south wind wasn't going to be as bad as it was. One mile out the lake was full of sheep so i went on a joy ride and practiced my seamanship for a while on the white caps and after a few hours the wind finally settled down enough to drag a few lines close to shore. Went 1 for 3 on landlocked salmon. All small fish, nothing picture worthy.. Nice to have a day off and get out on the water after a long winter.
  17. This needs to happen. This has been an issue since they closed snagging. From snagging to poaching deer, fish and game fines are a joke in NY state. I just read a story about a guy in Ohio that poached a deer and received a $43,000 fine and loss of his license for 10 years. I would think that is a great way to keep guys (some not all) from breaking the laws! In NY state he would have received a hand slap.
  18. Nothing yesterday,too windy. Nothing yet this morning, we’re headed down towards little salmon.
  19. Center to center on the mounting pads is 37", outside to outside is 40 1/4". Looks like the mounting pads will be approximately 6" in from the back of the hardtop. Sent from my VS995 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  21. Water temp is 41 degrees off Rochester...I see Daffodils around the area too. I think this weekend may be good. Check other Niagara River fishing websites. It may be Smelting Time!!!!! Good luck to all.........
  22. A Canadian Coast Guard Arctic ice breaker made a path to Buffalo last week. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  23. Sorry if I over complicated things for you Ray I'm basically a long time fisherman rather than an outdoor writer per se. I know I get into detail often (and may even get mired in it sometimes) but my main purpose for postings is aimed at helping out people that are either unfamiliar with the Finger Lakes or inexperienced fishing for trout and salmon(or both). After about 70 years of doing this stuff I figured it may be worthwhile trying to give back a little to the sport since many or most of the old timers had the approach of "Hey I had to learn this stuff by myself so I'm not spoon feeding anyone" and I had to acquire most of whatever I know at this point by trial and error or the mutual experience sharing with buddies so the learning curve has been pretty steep. I agree that things out here on Canandaigua have changed radically since I first started fishing the lake itself in about 1967 after fishing the creek before that. There are some big Lake Trout in the lake still but they are not as readily available as in the past or in as great numbers. The bait situation is also different. In the past at the south end in particular back in the 70's and 80's there would be huge pods of bait the size of a football field horizontally and extending over a hundred feet vertically from bottom to surface in the Spring. I haven't seen this or anything close to it for many years. There used to be huge pods of rainbow smelt in the lake and in the creeks in the Spring...they are now pretty much gone.... I have collected data for the DEC Angler Diary cooperators for a long time and on the most recent report one or two fishermen accounted for most of the laker data. I spoke with one of them an old timer in his eighties who uses mostly Seth Green rigs and jerks copper and he agreed with this view and noted that you really have to know the lake very well these days to be real successful. When you combine this with the fact that many of the guys now fishing the lakes are using downriggers, wire rigs, planer boards etc. spending much time fishing "suspended" and not necessarily "bottom fishing" or stillfishing with bait etc. the catch probabilities change and not for the better as far as Lakers go but it does more effectively target rainbows. Most people don't fish specifically for browns here and although an occasional brown is caught trolling it is not necessarily the best way to catch them. They are heavily nocturnal and the big ones are found in closer to shore than most trollers go in the early hours and retreat to deeper water and nearer bottom as the light grows strong. When properly targeted using the right stuff in the right way they can be fairly effectively caught on a more consistent basis. Sorry for being long winded but I figured it as an opportunity to explain things a bit clearer (hopefully).
  24. 2 Cannon easi-troll manual downriggers with bases $240 plus shipping. I am located SE PA just outside Philadelphia but will be up in Oswego a few times through the end of May and can arrange pick up that way. Baytech
  25. I beg to differ on the quality of their repairs. I worked in this line of work. From the new dock materials to the lined walls, they are sparing no expense at this time. They are DOING what is NEEDED to be done. To make money in the long run, ya gotta spend it and thats whats going on. Im excited. Cant wait to see what the "new" fee will be though for a slip...
