    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.

    Yup. If you show up on the list, you’re all set. When I was doing it, I had to process all of the registrations manually and I sent each registrant a confirmation email. After 18 years as the Club Secretary, I retired at the end of last year. Chad here at LOU is running and maintaining our website now and he has everything automated. Once the payment processes, it automatically updates the list on the website. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Guys - as of November 30th we are 2/3 full. We expect to be sold out by the end of December. If your planning on attending, I wouldn't wait long to secure your seat or you may miss out on the cutting edge knowledge that Greg, Jason and Rick will be sharing in the school.

    Tree trimming

    It depends on how the road is designated, most are two rod or three rod roads. A rod is 11 feet, so the right of way will extend 22' or 33' in either direction from the center line of the road.

    Exactly, and if you really need the basic stuff, there will be basic learn to fish Lake Ontario sessions available periodically throughout the weekend in the 1 hour seminars, that will cover a lot of those topics.

    When to put your boat in the water?

    I’ve seen -30 at my house with the boat engine winterized with the -60 purple stuff and never had any issues. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
