  1. I use Amish Out fitters cut bait caddy for the Gambler Rigs and a cabelas flasher storage bag for the cowbells. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Small orange dodgers and small orange spin doctors work awesome. Run them off of short cores. The bite has been awesome down west from the reports.

  4. Low is not good and high is not good. Why cant we just achieve Historical average and ride it? In February, the IJC released a statement that they had reached the historical average but were going to continue to let water out to be ready for the snow melt. The marinas on Sandy Creek are unusable due to low water. If the water doesn't come up, we are screwed. The IJC needs to use common sense and look at precipitation, lake levels of the upper great lakes (inflow) and snow pack amounts. We were in a drought last year, behind in snowfall over the entire Lake Ontario basin, and behind in total precipitation this spring. Why cant they just use common sense and data that is readily available?
  5. IJC is upping the outflow tomorrow. WTF!
  6. There are days when too many sets of attractors shut them down. When this happens, run a “clean” Gambler Rig on one rigger a little further back and cowbells/ death trap on the other rigger. They usually come in in packs and you will pick them up on both rigs. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Is the LED flashing when in the water? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Like I said in the other thread, they moved off the shoreline for a good source once the water went clear a couple weeks back. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  10. One of three browns we caught this day in 120-130’ on the bottom fishing lakers off sandy. Water was 39 degrees on the bottom. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  12. One mans trash is another mans treasure! The lake trout hate will dwindle even more if the DEC continues to cut king stockings.
  13. My point is in certain situations, brown (kings, lakers, steelhead, coho, atlantics) will leave the preferred water in certain conditions and move to where there is plentiful amounts of food. With the clear water and the calm sunny stretch we had two weeks ago, the browns may have moved off the shoreline to deeper water. I have found browns scattered over deeper water at this time of the year before feeding on gobies. In the spring of 2013, we found browns in 40-70 on the bottom at this time of the year off Sandy. The inside waters were clear and the browns were not around. I don't ever remember an April with this little colored water either. I do agree the stockers from last year seem to be MIA. We caught zero fishing browns last summer. I did watch the DEC stock browns near our pump station and the cormorants pounded that water for days after they were released. I hope we are wrong about the stockers and everything is ok. With the king stocking cuts, browns will be a staple for everyone to get through a season or two at some point.
  14. Thank you guys for the kind words and the support! When you buy from one of my competitors, you are buying from guys that just make tackle. I fish with my product and only produce and carry stuff that produces. If anyone ever has any questions on lake trout tips and technique, feel free to ask. I'm always willing to help out. The only thing I will not give up are my weigh points off of Sandy and Ibay!
  15. Lots of 12 gauge on ebay. Not so many 20 gauge. They are going for $300.00+!
  16. I was reading about this on other forums. I cant believe guys are saying they will be fine. I wouldn't trust NY to not pull a fast one on guys. Backdoor gun grab at its finest.
  17. Hammerhead Cowbells or Gambler Rigs Death Traps and Gambler Rigs are the best weapons in the arsenal hands down! Here are my favorite colors for each: Hammerhead Cowbells size 5/0 Froggy Trout Alien Crystalina Blue Glow Lake Trout Killer Death Trap Magnums Crushed Ice UV Yellow Dew UV Antifreeze Gambler Rigs in regular and magnum sizes. Bull Frog Silver Glow Alien UV Chartreuse Dot Glow UV 2 Face
  18. It has been insane! I broke my sales record every month so far this year. April has been amazing!
  19. Its 45 right now. What's too cold? I have caught browns in the spring in 39 degree water. Its about food. If the food is there, water temp will not matter.
  20. What I'm saying is they could have moved to deeper water. We have been getting a huge abundance of 1-2" gobies in our intake recently. That is not the norm.
  21. Only thing they could do to improve it is move the line counter. Other than that, I don't think its possible to make the reel any better than it already is!
  22. One other thing that could be going on is they are eating gobies. I have noticed in other clear water spring years, browns seem to scatter in deeper water and feed on gobies. ( I have caught a bunch of browns over the years laker fishing at this time of the year). I hope you are right Brian. Last summer when I was brown fishing in June, July and August, we caught very very few stockers compared to past years.
  23. . The DEC has been made aware of our displeasure with the amount of cormorants and how many stocked fish they kill. Every state of the lake meeting it was mentioned. A couple years back, Capt. Vince said we need to take better care of what fish we stock at the meeting. It seems to still fall on deaf ears. Canada has started a cormorant hunting season. We need to get on board. I would by a duck stamp again and start hunting them.
