    2016 LOTSA Salmon School

    Sorry for the late announcement on this guys, I've been crazy busy lately. On Saturday January 23rd the Lake Ontario Trout & Salmon Association (LOTSA) is once again hosting its Salmon School. This highly successful School, in its 9th year, boasts six hours of instruction taught by three expert Charter Captains; Pete Alex (Vision Quest-Port of Wilson, NY), Pete Lahosky (Prime Time-Port of Oswego, NY) and George Freeman (Free Style Charters-Port of Ludington, MI). These three Captains have very successful Charter businesses along with a proven tournament track record of high placement over many years. They are a much diversified set of instructors and will provide a class full of insights and details that no one single instructor would be able to provide. They are all skilled educators with significant experience giving Seminars over the years. Each brings their own unique set of skills and knowledge to the class. Given the depth of the knowledge base of these instructors and their proven ability to educate Anglers, we expect this School to be the most comprehensive, in depth, information packed event ever presented at the LOTSA Salmon School. for more information and to register for the School, please visit the LOTSA Website at www.lotsa.org
  2. no, it is completely relative and you need to figure out what the numbers are on the unit you are running. The actual speed is very likely not what any of them are displaying, but the number itself is irrelevant as long as you can repeat the number that is catching fish. If you are getting speed data from someone with a FH and you run a Moor or DR, you will be screaming way too fast if you try to match their reported speed. Tim

    Scottys, best releases on the market, IMO.

    Loc why no lake trout?

    Without getting into a biology/genetics lesson, Eggs from Alaskan fish won't work. There's a reason the Tule Strain of Chinooks from the Columbia River Basin were selected for the Great Lakes.
  5. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!SOLD----------------------SOLD---------------------------SOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SORRY GUYS, THE BOAT IS GONE. I SOLD IT IN AUGUST. Hi Guys, Just heads up at this point, My 1986 Thompson 24' Hardtop has kind of officially bought the farm, so once winter is over and I unwrap it, I'm going to be parting out what I can before I junk the hull. Item's I'll be looking to try and sell off of it: It has a good 5.0L Mercruiser (230HP) Engine, MR/Alpha 1 outdrive and transom assembly. The trim motor on the transom assembly was replaced 2 years ago. I'll either sell as a complete powertrain or as components. It is in the boat and you can hear it runAnyone with a soft top Thompson looking to upgrade to a hardtop, It looks like the HT is just screwed down to the gunwales, so it should come off the boat fairly easily. Complete with Drop Curtains and a Full Camper Canvas Enclosure. 1998 Shorelander tandem axle bunk trailer. The bunks need to be replaced which I will do in the spring before I sell the trailer, once the boat is off it. 60 Gallon Aluminum Gas Tank. Full Teak Cabin Door Assembly. full width Teak Swim Platform (Maybe. depends on whether I can use it on whatever this boat's replacement will be) Any other odds and ends, Thompson trim pieces that might be salvageable. I haven't thought much about pricing yet since we're still a couple months away from doing anything with it, but if anyone sees anything on the list you're interested in, PM me here on LOU and we can talk. Thanks, Tim
  6. I always look for 42 deg for the bottom of my spread. Everything else is above that, but i always have at least one line down in the ice water. Most of my bigger kings over the years have come out of the cold water. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Problem with Cannon Dual Axis Rod Holders

    Greg, I've had 2 sets of those for over a decade and have had no issues. If it ever stops raining long enough for me to rig it, they will be going on my new ride. Tim Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  16. On Thursday June 11 at 7pm the Lake Ontario Trout & Salmon Association (LOTSA) will be sponsoring a Seminar with Captain Greg Wiacek on the summertime fishing that is available out of Golden Hill. Greg will be talking about the great Brown Trout fishing near shore along with the Salmon and Trout fishing just offshore that is available to the weekend and recreational fisherman. He will be talking about his many tricks and techniques that he has used for many years to be a successful angler on Lake Ontario while still working full time for the New York State DEC. Like most of us who work all week and only have limited time to fish on the weekends, Greg has fine tuned his program to where he gets the most out of the time he has to spend on the water. LOTSA is a group of mainly weekend recreational fishermen who are dedicated to the enhancement of the Lake Ontario Sport-Fishery including the pen rearing project at Olcott. Each meeting also features a sharing of information the current fishing conditions. So come join us and become more successful at fishing Lake Ontario! The meeting will be held at the Cornell Cooperative Extension, 4487 Lake Avenue (Route 78 two miles north of Lockport), Lockport, NY 14094. The Seminar is open to the public and free to attend. See WWW.LOTSA.ORG for any questions.

    Really?

    Don't sell them too short. My grandfather was a retired commercial fisherman on Green Bay and also smoked fish commercially as part of the business, and in his opinion, a 10-12 lb female carp was the best smoked fish out there. Males of any size weren't worth a crap in his opinion. He smoked whitefish, chubs (cisco) and several others, and he smoked a mean brown trout and salmon in the back yard long after he retired, so he's someone who's opinion on the matter I have a lot of respect for.

    Really?

    Same fish. The "European Carp" ARE Asian carp that were transplanted to Europe. Carp are native to Asia. Tim Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
