  1. As the 2018 Fishing & Hunting seasons winds down to a close, I thought I would write a little year end review and thank you note to the LOU membership for making 2018 a record breaking year for us. The overall traffic to LOU surged a whopping 35.47% over last year - incredible! Typically we see 5-10% growth but this year was different. I have my own theories why (gets especially interesting around 7:40 minute marker; apparently fisherman/hunters don't like having their GPS coordinates recorded... who would have thought ) but first and foremost, I owe a big thank you to the LOU membership, moderators and captains/pro members that help keep this site going. I see LOU more as a family then a forum and that has always been the goal since day one. Now with over 20,000+ members, it's not to say we don't have our family fights here and there but that is to be expected. At the end of the year you can look around and see most on LOU are fighting for the same cause and foster a family-friendly atmosphere. As we head into 2019, we recently released an updated version of the LOU App for both iPhone and Android. Many of you have updated to the latest version already. For those that haven't and are interested here are the links: Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tapatalk.lakeontariounitedcomfishinghunting&hl=en_US iPhone: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/lake-ontario-united/id644330966?mt=8 Lastly I wanted to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and SAFE New Year. Thank you again to all the Pro Members who help pay for all the Christmas lights each year we break on this site..... yeah we break a lot of lights....and I have yet to receive even a single apology from any LOU member for the destruction they cause Best of luck to all of you in 2019 and thank you again for making this year a record breaking year on LOU!!! Chad & Jerry
  2. Merry Christmas everyone - hope you all have a great day with friends and family
  3. Had a chance to talk a bit with Gregg Thomas the last couple days about a new program they started over at Musky Hunter. Appropriately titled the Ambassador Program, the core goal is to increase youth membership to the sport. The program affords those interested in participating the opportunity to provide a 1-year subscription to Musky Hunter Magazine at a discounted rate of $15.00. All Ambassadors will receive a "Musky Hunter Ambassador" Decal, a Certificate, and your name listed in Musky Hunter Magazine as an ambassador. Gregg was happy to extend the offer to LOU members as well as all the local muskies clubs; NMA, Chapt 69 & 70, Muskies Canada, etc. Here is the link for those interested: https://www.muskyhuntercatalog.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=69&product_id=405
