  1. The buoys float up and down but at less than the wave heights. Their readings are about a foot off the true wave heights. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Steelhead on top. A long ride out there though. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United The warm water from the St Lawrence could push down western basin thermocline.
  3. The understanding of the mid summer thermocline movements is a necessity of your fishing success. Warm surface waters flow with the wind and cold thermocline waters replace them. But the thermocline waters at this time of are dissolved oxygen deprived. The blue clear water is not where the fish are. They travel with the green algae colored water where the forage fish are. Just look for the green water now in the warm water conditions. The thermocline is like a fence and the mixing of the different temperatures stops. The warm surface water is enriched with oxygen by the whitecaps at this time of year. In inland lakes the thermocline may be as high as twenty eight feet and fishing deeper is useless. Many fish now run to marinas or weed beds to escape the sun. Sent from my iPhoness using Lake Ontario United
  4. How about Bass Pro bought out Cabelas and they do not need another store to compete with the two stores nearby. Online sales are a major component of their marketing and stores are for hands on sales. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. It is important that we share our time with our children, not to run away and hide from them on a boat. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. Fast, not like spring cold water light spoons. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. The Kenai/Russian River " fly fishing" is not similar to your trout experience here. A 2X or 3X long shank hook is used to sink the fly close to the bottom. The bright colors are for the angler to observe the hook. The migrating salmon mouth the line with their large teeth then the hook sticks in the mouth. A sinker a couple feet above the hook ticks the bottom as it drifts in the current. This is where the line is kept close to the bottom and catches the fish.

  8. If you see whitecaps, you are your own weatherman, an on scene observer. Make your own decision on what you see, not some TV person. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United At this time, the warm waters make their own weather and it has nothing to do with on shore weather .
  9. "how to filet a salmon" Go to You Tube and write in the above subject.
  10. Adding another battery in the transom area with this additional kicker engine hanging on the transom can cause a dangerous condition upsetting the designed balance of the boat. Think of a wave coming over the transom. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. Using a spray gun subjects you to a DEC violation unless you have an approved spray booth. A roller or brush is safer. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Where is the reference to the smelt who decimated the blue pike,lake trout, whitefish and ciscoe fry and fingerlings. Their biomass was bigger than the alewife. They did not have the massive dieoffs that caused public attention but caused the extinction of many cold water species in the Great Lakes. The simple answer back then was commercial fishing caused the loss of these species. But the Canadian commercial fishing community adapted to trawlers that harvested the smelt and shipped them to Asian markets mainly. When the controls on the smelt biomass started in the 1960's walleyes, perch and bass numbers increased. The concerns of contaminants such as PCB's stopped the harvest of food fish in Lake Ontario and the alewife and smelt populations were noted and then the salmon programs began. Today there is a narrow window of salmon stocking numbers that is being implemented to prevent a disaster such as Lake Huron experienced. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Yes, people eat salmon and New York State and Lake Ontario has become the "Salmon Capital of the World ". Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. The first king salmon from the Copper River hit the streets of Seattle this week. $75.00 a pound was the sale price. Who said New York is expensive. Enjoy our bounty now. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Four mile creek campground east of Fort Niagara boat ramps is nice. Olcott has a campground across the road from the marina. Use your internet to search for more sites. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
