  1. Trailer it to the Barge Canal from Olcott could work fast. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Back in the late 1950's and 1960's Lake Erie was considered dead. It was not dead, just dominated by a foreign invader called smelt. These little critters consumed the fry and fingerlings of the blue pike, lake trout, whitefish, ciscoes and cold water fish. The blame landed on if it could happen was commercial fishing. In 1964 the Ontario commercial fishing industry began trawling and shipping the smelt to Asian markets. We started stocking Coho salmon here and the smelt became under controlled conditions. The perch and walleyes, bass began to return to the greatest fishery for food fish on the lake. Sportfishing groups called for walleye stocking and the biologists called it futile. The alewife is another saltwater invader and it and the smelt dominated Lake Ontario then. Due to high contaminant levels, they were termed unsafe for human consumption . The only control available to keep the beaches clean of alewives was the salmon and trout stocking programs. This created sportfishing interest today and we have pressure on the the educated fishery managers to increase the salmon stocking numbers. One group has logical conclusions fighting against money chasing interests. There you go. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. The USCG was all diesel when I served on their utility boats. Today most of the small boats are gasoline outboards since they are a lot faster. The fastest diesel was a thirty foot fiberglass and it did thirty knots. Now their triple outboards can hit seventy MPH. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. The State of New York does not own the lakes. The Indian Nations never gave title to the waters, just their land. Building structures out there will never be negotiated with them. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. Ontario has now constructed thousands of wind mills, none of them on the water. It seems some hungry politicians are looking to steal a revenue source from land owners. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. The ships lost in the storm were top loaded with extra anti aircraft weapons during wartime and their stability was compromised. Halsey was blamed the blame should have been on the officers who added the weapons on deck. I Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. A few weeks ago, we had a triple water spout off Point Breeze here on Lake Erie. They disappeared as I tried to get my phone camera set. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. More people died in the evacuation than the last hurricane in Houston. Roads are gridlocked and gasoline is unavailable in Florida now. This could be another government screwup counting on evacuations as the answer. I75 was moving at 8 mph today at noon in Alabama and things really have not started. The drive from Fort Meyers took 13 hours today for a friend trying to get out. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. Operate in high seas at six mph. You will get there, it just takes longer. Your back and boat will last more longer. Boat dealers sell high speed engines for profit, not safety. Several times this year we came in from six miles out in over an hours time but there was no pounding hurting backs or loose rivets. Take care of your boat, get used used to traveling slower.

  10. Watch the u tube show "pressure bleeding salmon on the Taku". Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. The North Pacific Commercial salmon trollers have a drain box on the stern of their boats to drain the blood away before they clean and ice their catch. They receive top dollar for their salmon with excellent handling of their catch. They bleed, clean and ice their catch as soon as it is landed. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. I saw a 39 pound king. Taken this year. Somebody is doing something right. Lake Ontario has the greatest salmon fishery in the world. That includes the North Pacific Coast. Enjoy it. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. The big box stores stock items used all over the USA. Not what is the hottest, newest lures used locally. The drive to local stores is well worth it for your fishing success. They will put you on what is happening now and save you money since you will have lures catching fish, not lures that catch fishermen and their wallets. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
