  1. Farmers and logging took down the trees and the stream temperatures rose too high to allow the natural reproduction of the native Atlantic Salmon. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. I moved my battery and kicker fuel tank to balance out the extra weight of the four stroke. Since 2004, things are fine. Pulling the downrigger up loads the kicker RPMs up but it indicates the battery is being charged . Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. Trout usually sink to the bottom when they die. Unless the water is shallow or extremely clear they are difficult to count. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. There is a sun activated glow tape out there that really works. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  5. I am not apologizing, just seventy years of boating caused me to learn from the old timers, not the greenhorns. "Gunwales" is it for professionals, not wanna be s.

  7. Gunnels? Gunwales.
  8. To get my “dipseys” deep quickly I use twenty pound braid. Less blowback with the fine diameter line. Only spoons or shallow stick baits that do not tip the “dipsey” back up . High drag lures like deep divers or flashers flatten out the the downward pull of the dipsey and result in shallow depths. Snap weights and rubber band sinkers are better for deep diving. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United No matter how much line you put out, they reach a certain depth and go no deeper due to the drag from the line and large diameter line such as thirty pound mono will lift your dipsey up.
  9. Panther Electro Steer is a great way to steer your kicker motor from any where in your boat. Single hand fishing is more enjoyable. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. Trickle chargers will boil the water out if left on continuously. you should use the "maintenance" charger system which gives a tiny pulse charge at short intervals to keep your battery charged.
  11. 24/365 for 5 years now on charge, maybe I will check my water. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. No Boat? A casting drone! Cast out 1500 feet with a drone taking your lure or bait way off shore. Check out "Fitch Casting Drone".Also view "Urban Splash Drones".
  13. The green stuff you use in your automobile is a deadly poison. Draining it on the ground will expose your dog to lick it up because it is sweet, think about the danger when using it,
  14. I laid up tug boats for the winter. We pumped oil into the sea chest and shut off valve to prevent ice bursting the pipes. Then the “do gooders” came along and could not do it any more. The fix was to install an air fitting to the line and bubble air into the pipes to remove the water and it worked. You could leave the boat in the water all winter long. Also a deicing pump under the boat would pump bottom water to the surface “39 degrees” around the boat and keep the boat from freezing in place. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  15. The insurance company guys report that 70,000 deer were killed by cars last year in New York. All these preservationists do not have to worry of deer over populations. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
