  1. Interesting question. Big-O has aboutn18,960 sq km of surface area so a depth of 5 cm is approx 945,000,000 cu meters. Current outflow is 7960 cu meter/sec. so IF there was no inflow then it'd be gone in 33 hours. HOWEVER, Niagara is currently inflowing approx 6512 Cu meter/sec. Hence it'd be down in a little over 7 1/2 days. HOWEVER ( for 2nd time): The Genny is currently freaking roaring! I don't know what any of the other tribs are doing, so it'll probably be a little longer.
  2. Was 7620 m3/s. raised to 7960. They said lake came up 5 cm.
  3. Try trolling hem faster than normal.
  4. With a decent W wind, try the NE track. i.e diagonal with the waves.
  5. WATCH OUT for rocks! I imagine a lot of boats are going to be trailer'd home this year with busted lower units, due to the low water level.
  6. Nice fish anyways...and you got to spend time with your family on the water.
  7. "bumper"? What we used to call "snubbers"? I don't use them. I run copoly to the flasher then straight mono to the fly. 12 lines & 2 guys on a 16 ft'r? More power to you. Some charters run that many lines around here, but they have 10 ft beams and keep their lines separated real well. Boards are pretty hard to get out a ways if there's a chop on the lake. Also, Kings are a lot more energetic than Lakers or Landlocks and most will cover a lot of water. Tom B. (LongLine)
  8. ABSOLUTELY DO NOT ground anything to the hull of an aluminum boat. (unless you want an awful lot of corrosion real quick!) Tech has it correct....all grounds run to the battery. (note ground is the negative post, black wire) Tom B. (LongLine)
  9. As to depth, check out the weather forecast links on the left side of site. "Great lakes coast forecast" does a good job of temp at depth. Look for the 54F and below. That will give you a great idea as to where to start withy your riggers. Tom B. (LongLine)
  10. Nice looking boat. Winds generally pick up on Big-O around 9:30-10:00ish am. Winds at 15 knt out of west & Mexico can get real rough. Good luck & stay safe out there. Tom B. (LongLine)
