  1. On 11/10/1884 A seiche effect brought a wall of water 22 foot high through the streets of Buffalo, NY. 50 residents drowned here and uncounted vessels and mariners were lost on the lake. Just be aware that history repeats itself. What we have now is nothing compared to that event.
  2. Check your cell phone, it may have a built in compass. Also gps and elevation readings. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. This act saves search agencies a lot of time and effort searching for reported missing boaters. Mainly it saves your family time to recover death benefits since life insurance and Social Security payments are held up till death certificates are issued. In warm summer waters a body may float up in 24 hours but in winter conditions it may take 3 months to float up in the water. This puts families in financial distress. As a former Coast Guard responder I spent a lot of miserable weather in a small boat searching for missing Boaters. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. After the gale winds of November, fishing in ten foot of water is side planers only and stick baits that float up off the bottom when you stop for a snag or on inside turns. Jet divers also float up instead of lead sinkers. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. I noticed the gulls diving on minnows near shore. If the bait is there, so should the fish. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. A great view, the fish are suspended in the top twenty foot of the water column. This calls for side planers and diving plugs. Spoons off riggers work well there to avoid snagging the bottom. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. In order to predict future lake levels, consult the upper lake levels like Superior, Michigan/Huron and Erie. What they have is soon coming to Lake Ontario.
  8. Browns are not a suspended level fish. They orient to structure like the bottom. Where the thermocline and bottom intersect is the ideal area to troll for browns.
  9. As the streams and near shore waters cool, the browns and rainbows move in. The browns move in to spawn around the end of deer season. The rainbows move in to spend the winter in the streams and spawn in the spring when the water temperatures reach 45 degrees and return to the lake. They feed on salmon eggs over the winter in the Pacific rivers. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Alaskan rules any Chinook taken out of the water is a catch and the angler fills out his report tag immediately. There is enough food for a family and the angler removes his pole and is finished for the day. If the fish is netted in the water it may be released from the net after the hook is released.

  11. Shoreline owners in Florida and New York City will soon be under water. Be wise where you invest your money. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Seeing fish on the screen in shallow waters is futile. Realize your boat scares the fish away. When fishing from an anchored boat on the Deschka River in Alaska salmon traveling up stream showed up on our fish finder. Shut down your engine also. Casting Wiggle Warts and Hot and Tots worked well there. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  14. Well if you count a successful fishery by the number of fishery present on the piers and streams, go back to the snagging days. The anti snag groups ended up with the fishery and the non boating fellows were the losers along with the business people. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Water temperatures are the key for salmon and trout stream returns. Cold nights to cool down the streams have been few this year. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
