    Church boards and wire backing

    The red rubber bands work well with light lines. If not try the brown rubber bands. They break away from the release and are cleaned free when the line comes onto to the reel.Also rubber bands work well on downrigger releases. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    3 or 4 Downriggers

    Two riggers, two dipseys, four in-line planers are enough for me. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Down rigger mounting

    Really? That has not happened to me. Not having to lean out over the transom is more dangerous. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. DEC was shooting shags on Motor Island in the Niagara River while they nested there with 22’s. Did a number on them. But not for fishery reasons but they killed the trees. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Driving to Allegany County Friday afternoon for Saturday’s deer gun season opener, I joined A convoy of vehicles heading south loaded with “cityots” heading to their deer camps. Escaping their home rulers is their main objective, the deer are secondary. Every seat in the Belfast restaurant was taken with wall to wall guys enjoying their preseason dinner and schmoozing with old friends. The transformation of the local grass widows was missing. No new hairdos and sneakers were to be seen so the presence of many“old coots” ran them off. By 8:30 PM the crowd disappeared and it was early bed time for the dawn opening.

    Down rigger mounting

    If you mount the rigger more forward, they are easier to service and safer since you do not stretch so far over board.
  13. You have to be aware that that the Niagara River is actually Lake Erie waters, not Lake Ontario which are warmer later and earlier each spring and fall. They are also nutrient richer and feed the forage greater than other areas of Lake Ontario. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. The original forage trawls were conducted by Lake Erie commercial fishermen who specialize on smelt. Maybe the college boys lack the life experience to produce fish as the fellows who make their living trawling. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Rainbow Trout Lures?

    On the West Coast Steelhead and Dolly Varden survive on salmon eggs and dead salmon flesh during the winter. In the spring after spawning and empty bellies they return to saltwater when stream temperatures reach 45 degrees and they feed voraciously. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
