  1. Past hour
  2. I tried dipping an old net I had in plasti-dip a few years ago... the kind you use to coat tool handles. Didn't turn out well, made a big mess and the cost of plasti-dip needed was over 1/2 the cost of a brand new coated net. Don't waste your time or money
  3. If anyone catches a few Crappie or perch locally, they don't share any specifics ever here, - for whatever reason.. However, they limit out on 10-15 pound Browns/Rainbows/Salmon, you'll get lure type/color/depths/speed/temperature/ water clarity/rigger ball design/flea and weed reports, and GPS numbers... Never understood it.. When I want good eating fresh water fish, I go to clear water lakes with a few worms under a bobber and catch big sunnies.. Every bit as good eating as crappie, fight a lot harder , and no one keeps secrets about them.. they are just there and readily available... bob
  4. They got line counters and get 2 ft per crank. Ive cranked up 10 lb fish weights with mine for years even tho they are rated for 8 lbs.
  5. I called a friend of mine that works for the dec inquiring when the state launch will be opening and he told me that the head of operations is looking at it weekly and until the level drops it won’t open.... but he couldn’t say how far it has to drop to open it......

  6. When you read about flesh eating bacteria, ecoli, the blue green algae, microscopic organisms, it is becoming concerning.

  8. Good information SK8man. Much appreciated.
  9. Welcome aboard, its a great site.
  10. The fleas will usually be present until the water temps come down in the Fall. The fleas are not always clustered in every spot or in all strata within the water column. This is probably why some folks get into them in concentrations that differ throughout the lakes as well as within a given lake. The fishook type of flea seems the most problemmatic and most difficult to remove. In short, you can't rely on second hand information and should prepare for the worst until Fall water temp reduction.
  11. Hi Bluegiller. Do these have line counters? Any idea of the ratio (1:1, 1:2, etc,)? I’ve been looking at getting the newer uni-trolls but haven’t been able to justify the expense. Do you know if the bases and swivels are the same as the electric mag-trolls? Sorry for all the questions. I’m headed to Olcott Monday and might be able to meet up with you then. Thanks, Chris Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  15. I caught a king in the Salmon River that looked like it had run through a tackle shop it had so many broken off flies and sponges and rubber eggs, etc etc etc stuck all over its body. And I retrieved a fly I had broken off in a large Rainbow out by Sodus one spring morning when I caught the fish later the same day on a different fly.
  16. https://www.uptodate.com/contents/soft-tissue-infections-following-water-exposure I worked in Public Health. I did the background investigation of a local stormwater facility where an individual had cut his thumb while fishing. 5 days later he had to have it amputated due to a severe Aeromonas infection. I had to catch fish to submit to a laboratory for testing (Please don't make me go into the briar patch!). We found that the fish had tumors and high levels of pesticides, but Aeromonas is ubiquitous in aquatic environments. Anymore, with the "flesh eating" strains of staph and the other antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria, cuts have to be treated rapidly and vigilantly. If I were going to gill a lot of fish anymore, I think I'd glove up first.
  17. Man, I wish someone on here would buy this. This is a great boat that's rigged for Lake Ontario.
  18. They do give them a call. It is called Oswego Marina. Last I talked to them they were booked solid but it is always worth a phone call.
  19. You're not the only one that thinks that. I had 2 break offs last week. Good question.
  20. If that is a question , I don't , but you can . Flasher with a fly , or cut bait or I use my Gary D rig. Leads of 25 ft for me . Sometimes I run the spoons back farther .
  21. Has anyone ever caught a fish that had a broken off lure in its mouth? I always wonder after a break off if some one will catch that fish and enjoy my lure. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  22. Hey everyone, I'm Brett. I have a 2018 Alumacraft 165 classic. I love fishing the big water (Erie - Ontario) Walleye and Lakers in Erie and Lakers and Kings in Ontario... Though I am having a very hard time catching the Kings [emoji31] Sent from my SM-N950U using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  26. Get to IBay early, line forms quickly and heard people are parking every which way because there's water in 1/2 the lot. A little water never hurt anyone, well most.
