    New Bill introduced in ny assembly

    Guys, this identical bill has been introduced 10 previous times over the past 20 years, including 2018. It will die in the encon committee as it has all the other times, as it should.

    Another 20% CUT in Chinook Stocking for 2019

    No, but I’m not sure the Lower Niagara is great spawning habitat for them. If it was, a naturalized population would have been established long before the onset of the pen projects. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    There have been pens in the Niagara since the origination of the Pen projects.

    True, but the difference is, your issue is based on water temp and is uncorrectable. Ours can be improved with modified stocking strategies. Particularly since half of the lake's charter fleet, and recreational fleet spends their spring parked down here in Olcott and Wilson filling their boxes with salmon. I don't blame them for that, gotta go where the fishing is good, but the simple fact is, there are a ton of fish taken out of the system out of the west end every spring and early summer, so when the migratory fish start heading home in mid August, we typically have very few of our resident fish left to stage and run and our fishing essentially flatlines in late August, unless you want to run offshore and chase 2 year olds. I'm just thinking that a revised stocking strategy might be able to correct some of that. It wouldn't really affect the fall east end fishing all that much with all of the wild fish that slam into the Salmon River every fall. Just my opinion.

    Unless you fish the west end of the lake when our fish typically disappear in mid August as they head east.

    Try the " Gary D " rig

    And Rockets also happen to catch a ton of fish.

    Wire line

    wrap of electrical tape on the spool for me. 1000 feet perfectly fills the spool on my Daiwa SG47 LC's. Don't forget the first time you take them out to fish with, before you start using them, you want to take them out over deep water and let the entire spool out with a heavy weight (I use a 1 lb lead ball) and reel it back in to make sure the wire is spooled tight enough on the reel, line winders wont get it tight enough and the wire will dig into itself and bind up with the first screaming king you hook up on. Been there, done that, no fun.

    They are fun to catch. I've caught several over the years in the Menominee River in Wisconsin, which forms the border between Wisconsin and the Michigan UP where it flows into Green Bay, between Menominee Michigan and Marinette Wisconsin (Dad's home town). They do actually have an open season for them there in the month of September with a season keep limit of 2 fish. I've never been there then when the season was open, but I have caught them incidentally while walleye fishing in the river. I've hooked bigger but, the biggest I've landed and released was about 5 feet/60 lbs. That was a lot of fun from shore on a 6 1/2' ugly stik and 8 lb test. It jumped clear out of the water 4 times during the fight. You see them jumping all the time at the base of the first dam, just upstream of the Hattie St Bridge where I was fishing. There are some big ones there I've seen jumping that were 7-8 feet long and over 100 lbs. It would be great if they can get the populations to recover sufficiently enough here to have a season for them at some point, even if it's strictly catch and release. Tim

    There's no port on the lake I'd rather fish out of in mid July than Olcott. Go with the July 13 weekend.

    Modifying boards

    Interesting conversation. I've had the Amish Outfitter Redwood boards for years, they have always pulled like a mule on steroids, to the point that I invested in the Cisco Electric Planer Reels because they were no fun at all to crank in by hand.

    I've also seen my first roadkill skunk in the past week or so. The skunks coming out of hibernation is always one of my key signs that winter is on its way out.
