    Learn something new every day. Thanks for the info. I never knew smelt were the invasives. Always thought it was the alewife.

    Both are invasive, they just came in during different time periods and avenues.  If I remember my history correctly (it's been a while), smelt came in with the Erie Canal and Alewife came in with the St Lawrence Seaway.

    I just talked to a friend of mine who put on the 2116's years ago. He never had the condensation issue but has replaced the counters in all four after three seasons. When he bought his they had no power switch. The new counters have a power button so you can turn them off when not in use. He said he paid about $50.00 for each counter. I think I'll stick with my old 1116's. Thanks for the info as I never heard about the counter problems until now.

     can't go wrong with either, I own both and have no complaints with either.  But then, I haven't had a boat in the water since 2013 , but I've owned Scottys since 2002 or so.

    I'm curious as to how you will accuse the Governor of letting the lake level drop too far if he lowers it now the way you want to.

    It pays to be informed before loudly expressing the mood you are in. Just for fun you should check the amount of water being released now.

    I know of a politician, whom you may have voted for, who would probably try to sell all the water in the lake after promising you that he would protect the lake.

    In one of the meetings with the DEC Steve Lapin(?spelling) mentioned that increased pen raised salmon has a dramatic effect for better survival and these salmon do tend to stay closer to their pen river. At the same time he said that increasing the number of pen raised fish , will lower the the other stocking numbers in order to keep a proper balance in the water. He also said that he does not mind giving more fish for the pens as long as he can lower the other regular stocking accordingly.

    The regular stocked fish does not have a home river because they never were in a river when they smolted and chances are that they will go to the water where they were spawned, but they have no reason to return to or stay near their stocking river. On the other hand the pen raised fish does.

    I think that you western guys  should ask for more pen raising stock and accept the resulting decrease of fish of regular stocking that will swim away anyway. Overall,you would be better of.

    Did you ever think of putting pens in the Niagara river thereby creating a west end natural reproduction river not unlike the east end salmon river ?

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

    That is very true. We have much the same problem on the east end where we have to wait until the middle of June for the Salmon to show up in good numbers

    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.

    20% sounds like a lot, but natural reproduction will probably be up this season, because the spawning salmon are well fed this year. The controlled stockings are less significant every year.

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


  9. 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.


  10. 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.

    I have 2 trip planned to fish out of Olcott, the weekend of 24 of June and weekend of 13 of July, my question is I want to do a kids weekend witch would be the better of the 2 , I’m from Michigan 

     

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

     


  12. 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.
