  1. The only issue with the format for a big fish Friday is taking the time out of prefishing to hit the different grounds that the species inhabit. IMO, this would be a much better format for an actual tournament.
  2. Along with stocking cuts, two pen projects are direct stocking due to water temps and late fish deliveries. This is only going make for a smaller year class due to poorer survival.
  3. I use the Uni to Uni.
  4. At least no one will back off the ramp!
  5. http://ijc.org/en_/islrbc/Lake_Ontario_Outflow_Changes I wonder why these idiots keep cutting back the outflow on the St. Lawrence River @ the dam. It was at 8000 the other day and they are back down near 7000. With the water level way above the High in the IJC 2014 plan, shouldn't they be dumping water to get it back on track?
  6. I change every year no matter how much use. It is a cheap insurance policy! If it's gonna fail, you know it will fail at the wrong time! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. The problem with the big ones out of Lake Ontario is they are spent. Most of the time they come up from 39-42 degree water into 70+ degree water. The 34.06 we boated in 2012 did not even flop once on the floor. If it wasn't a derby, the fish have never been revived. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Older than me! Bucket list fish right there! My new goal is a 40+ out of Lake Ontario! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  10. The adult lake trout population is way too high IMO. With the two bad year classes from the hard winters, the adult numbers need to be knocked down or the alewives could be in trouble. The DEC knocked the king stocking back to help take the stress off the alewives. They did not up the creel limit on lakers to help take the stress off the population. If everyone sits back and throws all the lakers back, you may not have a king fishery in the future. If the alewive population drops more, you can bet the farm that the Kings will go away before a natural federally funded species. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. Better fight but most of the time they come up too fast without the drag of cowbells. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. The cowbells must be run within 5' of the bottom AND below 1.8 mph ball speed to be effective. Scan for marks laying on the bottom. Those are the ones that you want to target. The suspended ones will come down and hit. I have had a couple customers send me videos showing them come down and hit. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. That muddy water goes all the way past our Webster treatment plant intake on Basket Rd in Webster. I wouldn't be surprised if it did not go to Ginna.
  14. As for depths they find them at in Mexico Bay, I'm not the guy to ask. I have never fished Mexico Bay. If the follow the pattern of the Rochester basin fish, most will stay deep and some will move shallow.
